Most Helpful Positive Review The. Best. Ever.
I. Love. This. So. Much. Okay. I am seventeen. Pale. Never used anything but the lightest shade in ANY makeup. I had acne for five years, but I've recently got it completely under control (THANK YOU, DERMATOLOGIST! ). I have very oily/dry/sensitive/combination/I-have-no-idea-what-is-happening skin. I have a LOT of scars and hyperpigmentation. Especially on my cheeks. I tried many, MANY concealers before I found this one. It. Is. The. Best. I have been using it for YEARS. I've gone through at least fifteen tubes. No joke. It is amazing. If your skin is moisturized right, it blends like a dream. (Watch out: it doesn't work well on dry skin.) It covers pimples completely. I can't tell if it actually HEALS them, but it has never EVER broken me out, which is a miracle that literally made me cry with happiness. I wear this everyday. It is especially amazing OVER a foundation, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer. It lasts a long time--sometimes ALL day, if my skin lets it. Reapplying is easy, and it never cakes if blended right. I use a beauty blending sponge, which makes it even better. The packaging is a little unsanitary, but a clean finger or a Q - tip fixes that. Overall, it is perfect. I've only ever needed the lightest shade, and it matches amazingly. Yes. I recommend it fifty billion times over.
Most Helpful Critical Review grey if used heavily
The concealer won't break you out, and goes on and covers fine. My main gripe with the product is the fact that it has a very grey undertone, and if used any more than extremely sparingly, will look super grey and cakey.
Reviewed by 212 customers Very drying. Waste of money
Ally from Wisconsin
I used this concealer on my acne because I've been breaking out recently on my chin. It completely dried up and looked really orange on my skin even though it was the lightest shade. I put a little on a spot on my cheek did the same oxidation deal but now I have this itchy dry spot there after removing it.
Acne prone, dry, sensitive skin
Kylei from Virginia
I love this product. I have very sensitive skin that is highly acne prone. This concealer actually helps my skin by clearing it up & reducing redness. It's summer, so I use this as a foundation paired with a sensitive skin primer, & it stays in place and keeps my skin looking great.

great for acne-prone skin!
Love it for breakouts
Sami from Indianapolis
I started using this concealer for my breakouts, after noticing my previous one was just adding more zits everytime i used it. It is a little drying, but it's to be expected because of the salicylic acid. For me it's easy to blend, I use a damp beauty blender and it works perfectly for me. It is also easy to build. Overall, I think this is a good concealer if you have acne prone skin, and want something that won't make the situation worse. This is definitely my new go-to.
Best concealer stick I've ever used
Eva from Boston, Massachusetts
I picked this up on a whim after my old concealer stick got old and turned yellow. I was blown away when using it - I had been suing a formula that was liquidy and ran, and because of that spread out easily and lacked coverage. This is the opposite. It's thick, and you don't need a lot to cover up even the most cringe-worthy spots. Since it's thicker, I find that you CAN blend it, but you have to do so pretty quickly or it dries out. It's medicated and I do think it helps my trouble spots clear up faster. My only con is that they have a very limited shade range, and I think I'll be in a bit of trouble towards the end of the summer. 10/10 would recommend.
Great for oily/acne-prone skin
Cam from Colorado Springs, Colorado
Doesn't make me break out, which is nice, but it doesn't blend very well and looks kind of chalky. I've found that if I apply concealer before foundation (as opposed to vice-versa) it blends better. Doesn't last all day. Overall all a decent concealer though.
Will bye over and over again
Monique from Los Angeles, CA
This product is best for acne prone skin and not for under the eyes. It is a great product when used properly. You need to work in sections of your face and blend a section at a time or it will be hard to blend into the skin. The concealer can be built up to a medium coverage. This concealer is drying, so make sure your skin is hydrated before applying. My only issue is that there is not a lot of product. I have to get a new one ever six weeks. I do use it everyday. Other than that, the product has helped me skin a lot!
Love this concealer
MadyB from Memphis tn
Love this product. I don't normally buy drug store makeup, but I bought this on a whim and am so glad I did. Perfect color and makes my skin look so smooth
No I would not buy it. Does not blend well with foundation
Shelby from Hawaii
Don't like it
The only product i use for foundation
Zippy from Watertown NY
I put a swatch of it in every area that needs extra coverage then use a stipple brush to blend over my whole face.
Love the blemish fighting almay products
Katie from Peoria, IL
Use this on blemishes to cover them and heal them!
Great for Teens with Lots of Acne
Gabby from Chicago, IL
When I first saw this concealer, I was looking for one that could cover all of my acne and pimples. I had very bad skin as a preteen and teen, and I used the religiously. Knowing that this was doctor approved was a life saver too.
This concealer is kind of hard to blend out because it dries quickly, so you have to move fast if you want to cover a large space, like under your eyes. This concealer is good at hiding red spots and under eyes. It is very smooth and natural looking after the first couple hours, but then it starts to wear off.
I still use this product everyday, with or without foundation. I use this with the Fit-me Foundation and they work together like a charm.
Great for a teens acne!
Macie from Chicago, IL
I use this to cover up my acne, and when blended out with my Beauty Blender it looks great! I minding spend a bit more money on makeup, but with this you don't have to! As a teen I have a quite a bit of acne and this does great to cover it up, and it has never broken me out further. I have been using this for around 2 years and I have no complaints!
Not What I Though
Your Aunt Linda from Pittsburgh PA
Product seems too thick/heavy. Did not blend easily. Will go back to Bare Minerals. Dissappointed.
Made acne worse
Rachel from SD
I had high hopes for this concealer, but firstly the shade light medium was too light for my skin and secondly I had to take it off cause something in this made my skin irritated, itchy, and made my acne worse throughout the day. I have very sensitive skin which is also oily and acne prone, and it just didn't like this product.
good for acne
Catharine from AL
I use this to cover acne. The coverage is decent (not the best but it works fine) and it doesn't make me break out, which was my main concern when looking for a drugstore concealer. The only problem I have is that it has a slightly chalky look to it when applied.
Okay but could be better
just the truth from Minnesota
This concealer has been with me for years, but it isn't the best for full coverage and defiantly doesn't last 24 hours. Sometimes it's okay, and other times it drys too much, or my oils make it rub off.
Overall, for a girl on a budget it will get the job done, but if you can afford something better than buy that. I have bought it repeatedly but I'm currently trying to switch.
It covers way more that the Fit Me concealer from Maybelline
Trionest from Texas
I use this product with an under peach coverage. I have very deep and dark circles. Before I had to use 3 different concealers to get the coverage I needed. Not the case with the this one, which was recommended by my sister. She has been using it for years!
Helps to reduce breakouts
Missy from Portland, OR
Helps reduce skin breakouts.
Terrible shade range
Laura from TN
I bought the shade light/medium.
When it arrived I could tell that it was way too dark. But I decided to try it on anyway. I compared it next to my Catrice go to in the shade light and the Almay one was absolutely terrible. Not only was it too dark to be light/medium. It was also so gray that it looked more like a want to be contouring product instead of a concealer. Everything that I've tried from this brand ends up being returned. Their shade range is atrocious.
Great! Especially for the cheap price
Kitty from Houston, TX
I loved this concealer! It's amazing for the price. It does tend to crease but after you apply your foundation you can barely tell.
Kiley from Me
It's okay it dosent break my skin out but it dosent last me cover well
makeup from san diego

Kristal from Grand haven, mi
This looked fine when I put it on, but hours later looked like I had dirt on my face.
I've used it for years and will continue to do so
Emma from Saint George, Utah
I use this product under my foundation to cover breakouts. It covers them well, does not burn despite the fact that it is medicated, and looks smooth. I also use it all over my nose under my foundation to give it a little more coverage without having to do full coverage all over my face, because for some reason I look like Rudolph. It smooths over pores and looks very nice.
The only reason that people are giving it bad reviews is that they are using it in ways that this product is intended (like as an concealer for under the eyes; I wouldn't recommend putting anything medicated on that sensitive area). I have a separate concealer that I use on areas that I'm not worried about making pimples worse.
The only complaint is that there are only two shades, although one of them happens to work very well for me.
