I love finding and featuring new brands and businesses that help brides (and grooms!) feel and look their best on their big day. The last thing you want to feel on one of the most important occasions of your life is self-conscious or uncomfortable in your own skin, am I right? That's why I'm thrilled to have have discovered Dermaflage, a super-neat company dedicated to not only hiding – but filling – scars and acne marks.
Last year, a dear friend of mine took a major spill off her bike and ended up in the ER. While her helmet saved most of her noggin (wear them, people!), she ended up with a pretty nasty, deep cut across her upper eye area. Now, she is not the vain type and would normally own that scar as proof of her badass-ness, but her wedding was coming up in just two months. While everything ended up OK, she had to hire a professional makeup artist to hide that scar – at a whopping $200.
What is Dermaflage?
It's really too bad I was unaware of Dermaflage at that time of my friend's accident, as she could have saved some big bucks by taking care of her scar herself. Considered the first scar filler makeup that actually mimics real skin, Dermaflage uses medical-grade silicone to temporarily fill in and “resurface” the uneven skin caused by acne scars and other types of indented scars, wrinkles, frown lines and even piercings to give the illusion of making your flaws disappear. Better yet, their products are all tested & recommended by dermatologists, cruelty-free, non-irritating and non-allergenic.
Plus, this product is not just for women. Because it actually looks like real skin versus other scar filler makeup, it's perfect for men who are self-conscious about their scars or acne marks. You'll definitely want to keep Dermaflage in mind if your groom is troubled by one of his battle wounds.
Easy to Use
While technically Dermaflage is considered a scar filler makeup, it's really so much more. Unlike heavy concealers that cake, wear, or run off before your day is over, its translucent formula is easy to use and takes under 3 minutes, start to finish. To use, apply the product over your problem area, blend, and hold the texture pad on the area for 60 seconds. Afterwards, you can use your typical makeup as usual, making sure to avoid your new scar-free area. And what's especially amazing about this awesome product? It lasts for 36 hours; perfect for your big day.
Dermaflage offers a variety of great products for problem skin, including powder, primer, refills, and more. But your absolute best bang-for-your-buck is the Dermaflage Starter Kit. Each kit has everything you need to fill and conceal acne scars and other flaws, including:
- 2 applicators of your chosen skin tone (about a 2-3 month supply)
- Mixing stick
- Precision application tool
- Texture pad
- 10 mixing tips
What I like best about this kit is you get to choose two tones in your skin color family, but if they aren't correct, you can get a free replacement within 30 days. Alternatively, Dermaflage offers a full refund on these starter kits for any reason. No more worrying about ponying up precious wedding funds for a makeup that doesn't match.
All of this scar-crushing awesomeness comes at the low price of $60, but use our exclusive promo code bride15 to get an extra 15% off this scar filler makeup.
