Beauty Test Drive: Liquid TimeBalm Spot Concealer

Know what’s not cute? Sweating through your makeup. Also not cute? The icky things that drying concealers do to your face as they try to banish your zits. But come summer (by which we mean the clogged pores of summer), we have a habit of turning to concealers with harsh ingredients out of pimply desperation. Here’s the problem: they don’t really work long term. For one big zit that you need to zap into submission, a concealer with salicylic acid will briefly help you out. For everyday acne, all it does is dry your skin into anger. Counter-intuitive though it sounds, a spot concealer with a touch of natural tea tree oil is actually a better way to go. We tried out TheBalm’s TimeBalm liquid concealer and kind of fell in love. It’s lightweight, so you won’t feel pancake-faced in the heat, and super soothing for sensitive or broken out skin. The ingredients are natural, the tea tree oil is a natural anti-bacteria and harsh ingredients are nowhere to be found. [$20, TheBalm, Sephora]
