Zenmed (in case you haven't come across them before) are best know for their reconstructive skincare which targets skin ailments such as rosacea and acne. Their latest offering sees them step into the makeup market with 2 brand new products designed to correct redness and even out skintone.
Firsty their Complexion Perfecter - which is basically a redness correcting beauty balm. Available in 4 shades fair, light, medium and dark it comes in a sleek black box and dispenses from a squeezable tube. it contains 3 skin benefits which are:
- Matrixyl peptide which is anti ageing busting and helps improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Olive Extract and Hibiscus Syriacus which help hydrate the skin.
- A broad spectrum SPF 25
The cream is very easy to blend and gives quite a sheer coverage yet still somehow manages to tone down any red areas of the skin. Colour match is really good and skin feels soft and natural. Having generally pale skin as well I love the inclusion of the SPF.
So to finish off the look they have also created HiDef CC Powder which is a colour corrector mineral powder which contains ingredients such as jojoba, licorice root extract, green tea leaf, and aloe vera. The powder is a yellow colour which is designed to target redness but also cover up pores. Its perfect for a range of skin woes such as dark circles, blemishes, uneven skintone, redness and discolouration.
I would say be light on the coverage to start as the yellow colour can be quite obvious if you put too much on. Use a brush rather than a puff as the coverage is alot more even. The yellow hue to the powder really calms down any angry redness and its gives a great finish to the Complexion Perfecter.
Overall the two products compliment each other perfectly - great for evening out skintones and hiding flushed cheeks.
The products are both available from the Zenmed website with the BB Cream selling for £26 and the powder £24.
Whilst we are on the topic of Zenmed I also recently tried another of their products which is from their skincare range - Organic Cream Exfoliator.
The scrub on application is very fine and creamy and a little goes a long way. Massage it onto damp skin for a minute or so then simply rinse off. Skin feels sqeaky clean and soft and provides a perfect base to apply your make up. I did find my skin felt dry quite soon after rinsing however that may be due to my skin type - but a few dabs of serum and my skin felt amazing.
This is a great gentle everyday scrub which cleans skin without the aggrivation. Again its available direct from the website and is £26 a tube however if you hurry over to the website its currently available on the specials page for £21.
Thank you to Zenmed for allowing me to review the products
