As an adult, some days you just feel the need to wear makeup when up against stress-causing flare ups. Even though, not so deep down, you’re really thinking, “WHY? Why am I still having to deal with pimples going into my 30s!” Insert dramatic yell emoji here —> !!!
Nevertheless, life goes on and you have to go out in public! The best option is clean makeup.
The last thing you want to do is cake-on heavy foundation to try (emphasis on the try) to hide the blemishes and only end up irritating your skin some more.
I’m glad Influenster provided me with the bareMinerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Spot Concealer complimentary for testing purposes last month because wouldn’t you know it…
My face surprised me with a new flare-up on my chin in the beginning of the new year just in time for the concealer’s arrival. (I’m blaming it on my standing 3-year KonMari Refresh ritual I perform every 6 months). And let me tell you, this pimple was not sparking any joy!

I was especially excited to test the bareMinerals concealer because if I found that it would actually conceal the blemish while treating it, I would no longer fret (as much) about being up close and personal with someone during a conversation while I had a red-glaring flare-up on my face. You mamas know how it is!
After 3 weeks of consistent use in January – I’m a believer.
I was not totally convinced the first week. I mean, the blemish was still there, even though I’m sure it was performing all of its acne-fighting powers for me! But, you know how you low-key hope for miracles when you first start using a new product? haha
By the second week, the blemish was not red, nor irritated, or dry and itchy! Always a good sign. And by the third week, the blemish was on its way to blending into my surrounding skin!
Please note, I did not use any other acne medication during the testing period.

There are ten mineral-rich full coverage shades to chose from, which is pretty awesome for an acne spot concealer!
I received shade Tan/Dark 4.5N. This shade worked well, but I think a shade lighter, such as Med/Tan 3.5C, would have blended much better with my skin tone, especially since I was only using a tinted sunscreen on most days because being barefaced (with sunscreen) is my favorite! Especially when just hanging out at the park or the public library with my two-year-old daughter.
Super awesome little surprise was having a hidden sharpener within the concealer stick! One less thing to carry in the diaper bag when you’re on the go. Worked well, too!

Skin-Clearing Spot Concealer
in your handbag:
- Salicylic Acid Medication: Don’t just hide it, treat it!
- Matte Finish: Yay to not having a shinny pimple!
- Full Coverage: It can totally do double-duty and be used anywhere on your face to prevent future breakouts!
- #CleanBeauty: Made from cruelty-free skin-improving minerals and botanicals! Basically, it’s good for your skin!
(You just never know when you’ll be unpleasantly surprised with a pimple.)
Now I’m left with the need to test the other three products in the bareMinerals Blemish Rescue collection! (Influenster: Why didn’t you send all four?) There’s the Blemish Rescue Primer, Concealer, Loose Powder Foundation, and its very own charcoal-infused Seamless Buffing Brush!
I think, if I would have been able to use all four Blemish Rescue collection products during the testing period, there would have been a whole better and faster skin-clearing experience.
Have you tried any of the products in the bareMinerals Blemish Rescue collection? Are you an adult still coping with acne?
Please don’t make me feel like I’m the only one and let me know in the comments!
