Ex1 Concealer Review

Perfect the look of your skin with EX1 Cosmetics Delete Fluide Concealer; a creamy, highly-pigmented formula that expertly camouflages blemishes and imperfections.

Blending on seamlessly, the liquid concealer delivers natural-looking colour with buildable, full coverage for a flawless finish. Provides long-lasting hydration to prevent caking and creasing. Expect a smooth, even complexion with minimised blemishes and dark circles.

Review-

The packaging reminded me of the mac pro long wear concealer.

I got the shade 8.0.

The consistency is thick and lightweight.

I used one pump for both under eyes.

It covered my dark circles and brightens my under eyes.

The downside of this concealer is that is creased a lot.

I’ve decided to use the concealer for covering pigmentation and blemishes.

Review- Origins Primer

Achieve a fresh, flawless complexion with Origins Original Skin™ Cooling Primer; an airy mousse with a hint of tint for natural-looking results.

Infused with Willowherb, the lightweight foam delivers ice-cold moisture and hydration, whilst combating dullness and uneven skin tone to reveal a smoother, more refined texture. Helps to restore luminosity and blur the appearance of visible pores to leave skin perfected with a natural, radiant glow.

Free from parabens, phthalates, petrolatum and mineral oil

My Review-

Always shake the bottle well

The consistency of the product is like a mousse

It is easy to control how much product comes out

It moisturises my face, fills in my pores, evens out the texture, smooths out my skin

There is a peachy orange tint to the primer, which helps brightens my skin

The product feels very cool on my face which helps with any irritation

I give the primer a few minutes to sink into my skin and dry down

Foundation goes on top of the primer easily and blends easily

It helps my foundation last a good amount of time

This is just a guess, I would not travel abroad with it as it could explode in your bag due to the high pressure

Have you tried this primer yet?

My Thoughts on Proactive Skincare

I’ve been their skincare products for a few months

Cleanser and Exfoliator

I really like this product as it cleanses and exfoliator at the same time and it cleans my skin really well. I use my clarisonic mia 2 with this product.

This saves me time. From having two separate products.

Toner
Glycolic Acid helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, making your skin feel and look smoother, softer and more radiant
+ Contains a light astringent that helps remove surface skin oils and impurities from the pores
+ Salicylic Acid helps to exfoliate the skin and reduces the appearance of pores by removing dirt and debris from the pores

This does exactly what it says and the toner is not intense so I use it twice a day.

Glycolic Pads

Helps with Hyperpigmentation and spots. It does not do much for me.

Pore Targeting Treatment

Complexion Perfecting Hydrator Cream

Both of the moisturisers did not work me it just sat on my skin it did not sink in.

And after it dries down and you touch your face the moisturiser begins to roll off.

And don’t wear it under makeup and it will start to roll off.

My advice-

Don’t purchase through the pro-activ website as they automatically send you more product without informing you.

I would purchase through Boots or Amazon when it’s on offer.

Overall, I would not buy from pro-activ as the products did not work me well enough. And buying some products individually is really expensive. So I have alternatives.

Alternatives-

Cleanser-Sukin Facial Foaming Cleanser

Exfoliator- L’Óreal Exfoliator

Toner- The Ordinary Toner

Moisturiser- Garnier

Spot Treatment- Orgins

Cosrx pimple patches

Review- Colourpop Concealer

I have the shades golden and medium

I bought the concealer before the new shades came out.

A lightweight, creamy, full-coverage concealer formulated with soft-blurring pigments to create the ultimate matte, flawless complexion.

Finish- Matte

The new shade is Medium Dark 32

And medium 32

How I applied the product-

I applied the shade golden on my dark circle and the medium shade on the centre of my face to highlight

To blend the concealer I used a beauty sponge, either by beauty blender, morphe or real techniques

To set the concealer with the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder in the shade 2 and I use the same beauty sponge

The concealer finish is semi matte and lasts well and blends easily.

Where to buy-

Medium 28
