Abreva Conceal Patch Review and Giveaway

The Abreva Conceal Patch is a non-medicated clear patch for covering up cold sores.  It is a unique product aimed at making it easier to cover up a cold sore by providing a smooth surface for makeup.  At the same time, the patch is breathable, so it lets air in but also protects the area. I previously reviewed the Abreva Patch by putting it over a blemish and was happy to try it again because I wanted to try it on my lips and also try something new with how I apply it and put makeup over it.

The patch itself comes with a tab that you use to place it. After pressing for 20-30 seconds or so, you carefully peel off the tab, leaving the patch on your lips.

Here is an important trick I learned with this. If the patch is too big for the area you are covering, try cutting it in half! I cut mine in half and lined the straight edge up with the outside edge of my lip. By doing that, it covered the area I was aiming for perfectly, without showing over the side of the lip.   I then applied a bright and fairly matte lipstick over it, which I think covers the patch better than a shimmer type of lipstick.

Below is not the most flattering angle of me, and I have very little to no makeup on (gasp!), but I wanted to show the result. Can you see the patch? It is on my upper lip (toward the bottom of the upper lip), on the left side. I could barely see it in person just a few feet from the mirror. I don’t think I would spot it in the photo if I didn’t know where it was and wasn’t looking for it.

The patch worked wonderfully for me when I tried it this way. If you don’t need to cover any skin, I recommend it. If you need to cover skin, leave the patch whole and apply a thick concealer over the skin part with a soft brush and then powder over that. It will still show a bit, but it is better looking than a cold sore.
