Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When I first saw this product, I was interested in reviewing it mostly because I wanted to find out why and how this product could be sold for $25 for being so small and looking just like powder foundation, but categorized as a concealer.  I’ve reviewed Ageless Derma products in the past, and have been quite impressed, so I had even more reason to be excited about this “natural camoufleur” product.

Ageless Derma carries skin care products, mineral makeup, and spa services.  Within the mineral makeup line is this Camoufleur Concealer, created to cover up imperfections of the skin.  We’ve all got them–scars, brown spots, or port wine stains.  I have quite a bit of spots left from my acne-ridden teenage years that I routinely try to conceal.

This versatile mineral make up concealer comes in five different shades, and I chose to review the “wheat” color.  It is very creamy and light–a good mix between powder and liquid.  Ageless Derma claims that this concealer is actually healthy for your skin since it is 100% mineral while being free of parabens.  Ingredients include apple extract, mineral oil, colloidal oatmeal, beeswax, and horseradish.

When I’ve applied this concealer, I’ve rarely needed more than what is on my finger above.  The substance is somehow thick enough to get excellent coverage with one layer, while being light enough that you don’t even feel it there.

What I didn’t even think about initially is how this can be used to hide signs of anti-aging.  You can use it under eyes to hide dark circles and to fill in wrinkles.  Ok, so notice the small scars along my jawline and the imperfections all along my cheeks.  I used about a fingertip’s worth of this concealer on the trouble spots, followed by light foundation, and I was so pleased with the improvement.

bef-aftI think it looks very natural, and with a thicker application, I think you could get near flawless.  Whenever I apply this, it lasts throughout the day without drying out my skin or becoming noticeable under mineral foundation powder.  Think of this as a concealer as well as anti-aging makeup, and you’re getting a two for one deal out of this product.

I was really into showchoir in high school.  We would have competitions against other schools (in a very Glee-like fashion) weekly during showchoir season, and were always trying to place better than the week before.  One competition we convinced the boys in our group to wear a little guy-liner and foundation, and we won our first Grand Champion!  With our medals and our trophy as tall as I am, of course we girls attributed it to the makeup.  They even made t-shirts that said “Real Men Wear Makeup”, and I think they let us spruce them up every competition after that.  Makeup really does do wonders!  It can win Grand Champion trophies and it can really enhance your appearance and boost your self-esteem!

Lately, I’m really in to mineral makeup.  I don’t know why or how I kept using liquid foundation for so long.  Mineral makeup just feels so much healthier, so light, and so real.  I had the opportunity to try out Purely You Minerals, and I’m pleased as punch with their line of beautiful colors and products.

These products were formulated by a busy stay-at-home-mom who worked tirelessly for 4 years to create the best formula of makeup that is natural, effective, and still designed with integrity.

Purely You Minerals sent me a few samples to test out.  I’m so glad they also sent me a few things I hadn’t requested, because some of them turned out to be my favorites!  In this picture from top to bottom are: Peachy, Satin Plum, Warm Fair Foundation, Haze, Translucent Light Silk Veil (which is awesome, by the way), Electric Blue, and Neutral Light Foundation.  Ochre lip gloss.

Everything feels very light and I never feel “caked” throughout the day.  All of Purely You’s products are made in small batches to maintain high quality standards, and they don’t contain any talc, powdered starches, clays, or parabens, and are always gluten free.  Hopefully this eliminates many possibilities of potential allergies for those with very sensitive skin.PURLELY+YOU+MINERALS+Compact

One of the really neat things that Purely You can do is a Custom Compact (starting at $5), which you can fill with four of your favorites and have your top ‘go-to’s in one place.  You can mix and match your favorites and only tote around what you’re actually using.  It also means you could have your blush, bronzer, and eye shadows all in one compact.  Speaking of eye shadows, Purely You has some super dreamy ones.  Check out these gorgeous colors:

And one lucky winner is going to get to pick their own full-size eye shadow!

I would wear all of these.  Even the electric blue!  I didn’t request to try this one out, but it was sent anyways, so I gave it a shot, and I don’t hate it!  If you’re interested in making the change to mineral makeup, I recommend starting at Purely You and trying a few things out.  Their products are super affordable and I’m nothing but pleased with them.
