If you are concerned about hyper-pigmentation, sun damage, acne scarring or age spots – these may be your new favourite makeup products!

The Clinique Even Better range has been a long-time favourite of mine. As I have mentioned before, one of my main skin concerns is sun damage! I grew up in a very sunny country and I was very naughty and rarely wore sunscreen! However, some years back I visited a Clinique counter had a consultation and thus discovered Even Better. In this blogpost I’m reviewing two products from the makeup range.
Photos demonstrating results are at the bottom of the Page!
(I’ve actually used a scar on my arm to show results for this as I think it’s much more obvious than my face!)

Even Better Foundation SPF 15

Skin Types: Combination Oily, Dry Combination

Coverage: Medium to Full

Benefits: Evens and Corrects Skin Tone + Contains SPF + Oil Free!

This foundation is the one that I always go back to – I even wore it for my Wedding day! There’s something amazing about this makeup – it actually contains ingredients to treat your skin problems as well as conceal them!

Within 4-6 weeks of using this product you should see a more even skin tone, diminished age spots and improved clarity! The SPF also means it protects against future darkening. Amazing!

I can say I definitely see a difference in my own skin when I’ve been using this product, so much so that I’ve stopped wearing it daily and have been using a BB cream instead!

TIP: If you are concerned with Acne you should use your fingers to apply the make up rather than a brush – far more hygienic!!

Even Better Concealer

Concern: Dark Spots and Discolourations

Skin Type: All skin types

Coverage: Full

Benefits: Brightens and Conceals

I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about this, and if I had read online reviews before buying this — I probably never would have found it! BUT a lot of the reviews seem to be from people with skin concerns such as bags/wrinkles that have simply not understood what this product is for! I would say that this product is for you ONLY if you are trying to conceal pigmentation and dark spots!

This concealer works really well, one thing I will say is that you need to warm the product between your fingers or on the back of your hand before use as it’s quite stiff. If you’ve warmed it first, it blends perfectly!

Here are the results you can expect to see. This is just one application of foundation, you can obviously put less or more on depending on the coverage you need.
