Fab Product Review-Abreva Conceal


An unwanted souvenir followed me home from Europe. On the last leg of my trip, a cystic pimple burrowed deep into my cheek throbbing and pulsating mercilessly and unrelentingly. I hoped it would quickly shrivel up and disappear but it was too legit to quit. By the time I got back to LA, it had staked its claim and carved out permanent residency on my left cheek wreaking untold havoc and torment. An emergency trip to the esthetican finally popped it out of my misery but not without collateral damage. I now have an acne scar serving as constant remainder of the facial pest that wore out its unwelcoming welcome.

I'd been covering up the mark with my long hair but a recent photo shoot required my "concealer" to be completely out of my face. So I decided to try Abreva Conceal, a clear
 non-medicated patch that conceals your cold sore (without any side effects) and enables you to apply makeup on top of it, lasting up to 8 hours.  It creates a protective barrier that allows air in with MicroAir technology while keeping contaminants out. Even though Abreva Conceal is designed and used for cold sores, since I did not have a cold sore, I tried it on my acne scar for the purpose of this review. I deduced if the product is strong enough to cover up cold sores, then it should be like Incredible Hulk-like for my acne scar.

Here's a step-by-step look at how I used Abreva Conceal on my unwanted Europe souvenir.


1. Peel back the paper tab marked in red with the number “1” Continue to hold the rectangular tab and peel back the other paper tab, marked in blue with the number “2”. While looking in a mirror, place the round patch over the cold sore or acne scar. Make sure your face is clean.
2. Press down lightly on the center of the patch and hold the patch in place for 15-20 seconds to make sure it sticks.
3. Gently pull away the applicator tab, at a slight angle away from your face. Conceal is in place.
4. Apply spot concealer on top of it with a blending brush to ensure the cold sore or acne mark blends in with the rest of your skin.
5. Use powder to set the concealer.
6. Continue with the rest of your makeup routine.




The verdict? Abreva Conceal stayed, covered for the entire day and felt like second skin!
