Guinot Fast Mattifying Concealer Review

Ugh the joys of being an acne sufferer. To put it mildly, it effing sucks and I'm so tired of it. Like seriously, I'm 32 and I shouldn't have to be dealing with this anymore! Ugh. Anyway, I tried this new product recommended to me by an esthetician and of course I was skeptical at first but after trying it just once, I noticed a huge difference. I've never heard of this product or brand so I thought I would share with you! (PS- I am still visiting the dermatologist for the first time next week because I really need to put a stop to this once and for all!) 

My acne turns up whenever and wherever it wants. It doesn't stay in one place or even one area. I always have a blemish, the question many do I have at once? Besides the fact that everyone wants clear good looking skin, I also want to use less makeup if my skin starts behaving. I wouldn't have to use layer after layer of concealer and foundation. But it is what it is (for now) and I have found a product that both heals and conceals! Yes! It does both together and I am super in love and excited about it.

According to the packaging, this concealer will help...
  • Purify and control excess oil
  • Cover up blemishes and make the complexion even
  • Heal the skin for improved clarity
  • Soothe oversensitivity

So this is my personal night routine:
  • Use my Avon wipes to initially clean my face
  • Clean my face with a good cleanser
  • Use a facial scrub
  • Apply toner to clean up any residue
  • Use my eye makeup remover because sometimes it refuses to go away!
  • Apply my moisturizer and eye cream
  • Apply this concealer to my problematic areas. I either use a concealer brush or my clean fingers. 
  • Let it dry before you hit the sack! 

If I am using this during the day:
  • Again, I clean my face with my favorite cleanser
  • Wipe my face down with my toner
  • Apply moisturizer
  • Apply this concealer! Let it dry before you move on to the next step. 
  • Then I start applying my makeup like normal. I use my primer, apply my foundation, etc. Before I set my face, I apply a bit more of this to my chin area (where I get the most acne!) I apply using my fingers, brush, and beauty blender. Since this gem has color to it, I don't mind stacking it on top of my foundation

Guinot Fast Mattifying Concealer Review

Yesterday at work, I actually got stopped 3x by people saying how beautiful my skin looks. It makes me sooo happy! This product works extremely quickly as well. Just by wearing it at night while sleeping, you'll wake up with a mild or extinct pimple. I was so shocked. Not that I go around not judging people but some times people do like to try to see you bullshit. This is totally NOT bs!! Acne suffers need to run out and buy this or order online!

Lastly, I use this as a 'mild' concealer if that makes sense, I wouldn't throw away my other concealers or not apply it. The Guinot Fast Mattifying Concealer will help the situation and act as an aid but I wouldn't say it's like a  traditional concealer so definitely layer up with your fave concealer. I'll be sticking with my Estee Lauder Double Wear and Bobbi Brown foundations stick for additional coverage in particular areas. 

What do you use to stop acne in its tracks?


  1. I haven't even heard of this brand which is insane because I feel like I know most brands being in the beauty space, but this looks intriguing! xx Adaleta Avdic

    1. I hadn't heard of it either but it's soooo amazing! I am so surprised! Now it's a must have for me!

  2. It sounds like a really lovely concealer - it's always nice when people compliment your makeup/skin, as you know you're definitely doing something right :D xx
