My review of Dermablend for Facial OCD Scars

I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I just recently was able to try out Dermablend ( http://www.dermablend.com ) at my local Macy's. With my Social Anxiety, it was a difficult proposition to even talk to a stranger at the makeup counter, but I was persuaded by my mother (more like dragged) to the Dermablend makeup display. There was a very nice lady who asked what I wanted to cover (ocd scratching scars on my face) and she asked if she coukd clean the makeup off one of my scars (embarrassing, but she was very sympathetic) and she matched my skin tone very quickly.

I bought the 16-hour setting powder along with with the actual jar of coverage cream, and I am extremely happy with the results. The cream is "professional coverage" and quickly virtually erases both dark and pink scars. The setting powder is a must if you have oily skin or sweat a lot, though, because it can dissolve a bit over the day if you leave off the powder. I have my own cosmetic brushes at home, so I didn't need to buy any, so my total cost for both cream & powder was around $60, which is a bargain for peace of mind, in my opinion, since I'm sensitive about how my face looks.

Just FYI, they also sell a special cream for body scars, and with the setting powder on, they say you can even swim with it on, without smearing. I haven't tried it, but am a little skeptical. Anyone else have Dermablend products?
