E.l.f. Budget Makeup Helps Fight Acne

It's hard to put your best face forward when your acne flares up. And for women like me, who are way beyond their teen years, adult acne is particularly pesky. So what's a girl to do?

e.l.f. Mineral Blemish Kit
For a long-term acne solution, it's best to see a dermatologist or skincare specialist.  But in the meantime, Everything She Wants suggests picking up a good over-the-counter acne remedy and concealer.

Luckily, my favorite budget makeup brand, e.l.f. (eyes, lips, face) has several options:

Heal and hide breakouts with the e.l.f. Mineral Blemish Kit ($8), a translucent powder with natural acne fighting ingredients like sulfur, tea tree and willow bark.  The kit treats acne and prevents future breakouts while penetrating into the pores to control blackheads. Use the sheer powder day and night with the handy concealer brush included.

E.l.f.'s weightless mineral concealer ($5) comes in five shades from Fair to Deep, and all the colors seamlessly blend to match your skin tone.  The concealer contains SPF 15 and is free of parabens, preservatives and chemical dyes.

And for only a buck each, you can try out e.l.f.'s Zit Zapper with a unique blend of salicylic acid, tea tree oil, witch hazel and camphor to, well, zap zits; Essential Tone Correcting Concealer to cover unwanted blemishes and imperfections using a multi-tonal silicone treatment; and Essential All Over Cover Stick infused with natural ingredients and skin polymers.

Big Sale Alert: Until Monday, Nov. 7, save 40% off anything in e.l.f.'s gift section when you enter the promo code, GIFTFAVES.

  1. First of all, I commend you for writing these skin care reviews. I've been suffering from acne break outs for quite some time now.
