Veil Cover Cream* | Review

Recently, I was very kindly sent out some samples of Veil Cover Cream* to try out. Veil claims to camouflage a range of skin problems such as acne, scarring, pigmentation etc and even tattoos! This is a bold claim and I must admit I was skeptical at first. I've been using it for around a month now so I feel like I've had enough time to formulate a full opinion on the product.

To apply the cover cream, you simply pat it over the area needing concealed with either your fingers or a sponge. Blend it in then apply a generous amount of powder over the top to set it in place and keep it waterproof. I was sent a sample of the translucent powder too which I used and it worked well, but I also tried it with my own loose powder and felt that it worked just as well so maybe buying Veil's powder is not completely necessary.

I'm really not prepared to post a photo of my make-up free face on the internet so unfortunately I don't have a comparison photo of my face to show you. Sorry guys but my terrible skin is not made to be online! To demonstrate the coverage I used it on a freckle on my arm. Of course a freckle is much darker than a blemish but as you can see from the photos, Veil even covered that up!

Does this product completely conceal spots and scars? No, but what product truly does? It does cover them very well though and I really noticed a difference in my face when I used it. It can be tricky on dry areas as it can look a little patchy but I don't think it's too bad. If you're just popping out and don't want a full face of make-up, but still want some coverage this is perfect. I don't have the confidence to leave the house with no make-up on (terrible, I know!) but with Veil on I wouldn't feel so uncomfortable.

I really like this product and would recommend it to anyone who's looking for some heavy-duty coverage. as it does really make a difference. It can be used as a foundation too which I haven't tried but to be honest I think my skin is too dry for that. Another thing to note is that if you're worrying about which shade to get, you can buy a set of samples in lots of shades for £6.50 to find your perfect one. If you don't want to do that, you should still be alright because I was sent various shades and there were at least five that suited my skin, albeit to varying degrees, but if you're wearing foundation over the top you should be fine with various shades.

Have you tried Veil Cover Cream? What's your favourite heavy-duty concealer?
