Which Oriflame concealer should I use? - Part 1

You only have to flick open a catalogue to find various different concealers in both liquid and solid formations, they come in sticks, palettes and tubes, so over the next few days we hope to provide some useful information as to what each of the concealers can be used for.

Today we are looking at concealers for blemishes and imperfections.

Oriflame Beauty Dual Skin Corrector
Used for - camouflaging blemishes and imperfections.
This product also treats the blemishes it covers as the inner core contains tea tree oil and aloe vera to help heal the skin. The outer core comes in 3 shades; Light, Medium and Dark, so hopefully you can find a shade which best matches your skin tone. RRP £6.75.

Very Me Cover Up Concealer
Used for - Covering blemishes.
Similar to the above concealer, this product also contains tea tree oil, it is much smaller, only weighing 1g and would be the recommended product for a smaller budget as it has a RRP of £3.45 but can often be found for under £3.00 when it is on special offer. It is also available in 2 shades; Perfect Light & Dark Secret.

Pure Nature Tea Tree & Rosemary Purifying Corrective Stick
Used for - Treating & covering redness and imperfections.
This product is primarily sold as a treatment for imperfections, it contains tea tree oil and rosemary oil which helps to purify and dry out problem areas, but the green shade also tones down the redness, which can then be concealed with the beige shade. This product is only available in 1 shade so it may be difficult to match it to your skin tone, but probably provides more treatment than the above concealers. RRP £4.75.

Oriflame Beauty 3-in-1 concealer kit
Used for - Neutralising redness, imperfections & all round concealer.
I would consider this product to be the most useful if your are looking for a good all round concealer and it's the perfect size to pop into your handbag should you need a touch up while your are out.
Green concealer - Neutralises redness and helps to camouflage redness.
Yellow concealer - Covers dark circles and can be used to reduce the appearance of dark spots.
Beige concealer - All-round concealer and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and scars.
With a RRP £8.45, I would recommend waiting until this product is on special offer.
