tarte At Ease™ Micronized Clay Calming Concealer

July 14, 2010

So if your on the edge of her seat, wondered, “did she? Did she get the tarte concealer?”
Yes, yes I did. Sephora kindly got their butts in gear and it arrived last thursday. I’ve just been testing it out before I weighed in on it.

I like it a lot. If it also covered blemishes, I think I’d love it. But it didn’t do a whole lot in that department. In its defense, it didn’t claim that it would, I was just hoping. However my skin has been pretty blemish free, so its all good.

What it is, and what it does: A corrective yellow cream and powder concealer that reduces redness associated with rosacea and sun exposure by 50% in just 4 weeks.

This concealer contains good for your skin goodies, such as:

-Amazonian clay: Nature’s most perfect ingredient, a multitasking and skin-balancing clay.
-ARPM™: Anti-redness peptide matrix that is clinically proven to reduce redness associated with rosacea and sun exposure by 50% in just 4 weeks.
-Camellia tea: A powerful astringent that contains toning properties, is rich in antioxidants, and helps reduce puffiness and inflammation.
-Honey Extract: A natural humectant that helps reduce inflammation and aide in tissue healing.
-Aloe Leaf Extract: A widely-known plant extract with soothing, healing, and antiseptic properties that helps maintain moisture balance in the skin.

What it does:
This neutralizing yellow concealer is infused with a proprietary ARPM™ (anti-redness peptide matrix) to regulate and decrease the secretion of a pro-inflammatory protein that causes redness and inflammation, which effectively reduces both. The skin-saving, High-Performance Natural™ concealer combines with the antioxidant properties of tea, the calming properties of aloe leaf, and the soothing quality of honey. The neutralizing yellow setting powder adds an extra skin-calming layer, infused with the skin perfecting Amazonian clay, nature’s most perfect ingredient. This acts as a total skin balancer by reducing dryness and flakiness, improving clarity and texture, and removing surface oil to mattify the skin for a soft focus and flawless finish; all while replenishing and rehydrating skin.

What else you need to know:
In addition to Amazonian clay, At Ease™ Micronized Clay Calming Concealer contains ARPM™, an anti-redness peptide matrix that is clinically proven to reduce redness associated with rosacea and sun exposure by 50% in just 4 weeks, camellia tea, which is a powerful astringent with toning properties that help reduce puffiness and inflammation, honey extract to help reduce inflammation and aide in tissue healing, and aloe leaf extract, which is widely known for its soothing, healing, and antiseptic properties that help maintain moisture balance in the skin.

I personally can’t vouch for the reducing redness over time because its only been a week. However it does cover and conceal my redness that I have. I also really really like that it is not thick, or cakey. It evens things out, and blends in well. As it states its a 2 part system. Cream concealer on top, powder in the bottom. It works quite flawlessly. It really does work as far as covering redness, so I’m pretty sure that over time with the special ingredients in it, that it would help redness subside as well.
It also has NOT broke me out. I think thats important to mention. Because a lot of concealers do break me out. I have very mild rosacea. Mostly just areas on my face that stay red. This has really helped. I can’t stress enough how much it would be of help to someone with moderate to severe rosacea. And because it doesn’t have a lot of garbage like other products, it aids in helping with rosacea. Because when you already have a skin condition acne, rosacea, etc. You really don’t need anything chemicals, etc being unpleasant to your skin.

At the moment I believe its a Sephora exclusive. You can get to it by clicking on any of the pictures or here.
