Cure for concealer and foundation creases!!!!

In a word: Jojoba! I saw this on a few videos, and it works! I have tried it three times before posting.

 

I had concluded that there is no such thing as a concealer or foundation that will not crease if you have fine lines or dryness.

If you think about it, it's like  or falling in between cracks of rain water filling a ditch, or the cracks in a sidewalk.

 

Jojoba remedies that and you need the tiniest amount. I paid $8 for mine on Amazon and if I will end up leaving it to my daughter in my will!

 

MU artists such as Katie of "Beauty and the Boutique" advises carrying it in a small little bottle in case you need to refresh it. Initially, it does look a little greasy, but your skin drinks it up. Try it!

What type or brand did you try? I just looked and there's organic, cold-pressed, virgin, etc... Tons of different brands. Thanks for the info- it sounds like something worth trying.

I use a couple of drops of jojoba with my moisturizer every morning before foundation. Sometimes I mix it with my shea moisture black African soap when I wash my face.  I use it daily and my face no longer ever feels/looks dry.  I buy my jojoba at Trader Joes...very inexpensive and works!

@Tribesters, when I buy any oils, I always buy organic cold pressed oils.  I bought Bella Terra (4 oz) for $8.99.

 

I need to look up exactly what jojoba is- but somebody mentioned it's actually a wax-and that it's actually synthesized from a blend...Correct me please if I misunderstood: all I can say is that it works.

 

I am thrilled with the results,

 

@Phoenixbird, I keep hearing about this Black African soap. I have seen it in bar form, but bars can be messy.  Do they make a liquid form? If they don't, I would still be willing to try it.  

 

Is is there a specific brand you use?

Thanks, Poodlepet2

@Poodlepet2, I saw Black African soap at my local vitamin store yesterday.  It comes in a bottle like a body wash and is on the thicker side, not liquid.  

 

My experience though on BA soap has not been good.  It's extremely drying, as in unbelievably drying.  I tossed mine.

 

Thanks for the rec on Jojoba oil for the face.

       How are you using it -  like a moisturizer or just in certain areas of your face that you are concerned with creasing?

@SilleeMee -- Yup, that's one reason I wear a foundation primer -- no creases.

I pat it on after my full makeup is on using my ring finger.

 

I DO use primer-but nothing stops concealer settling-especially under my eyes, no matter what moisturizer I use.
