What is the difference between Cover Cream and an ordinary make-up concealer?

Our Cover Cream offers a higher level of coverage compared to an everyday make-up concealer. The main difference is the content of the pigment - cover creams contain much more pigment compared to high street make-up brands. Because Cover Cream has a high pigment content this means that a little goes a long way. Therefore, the product is very economical in use.

Can Veil be used on very sensitive skin?

Yes. However, we always recommend carrying out a small patch first to ensure that Veil products are suitable for your skin.

Are there any skin conditions that Veil should not be applied to?

Yes. Veil should never be applied to open wounds or broken skin.

Can you wear Veil on the beach or whilst swimming?

Yes. Veil can be used in heat. It is also waterproof and can be worn in water. Although Veil Cover Cream works fantastically on its own, the cream is made virtually smudge-proof by the application of the Finishing Powder.

What is Veil Finishing Powder used for?

Our finely milled finishing powder is perfect for further increasing the already impressive wear time of Veil Cover Cream. Not only does the powder increase longevity, but it also eliminates any shine that may be present giving the area a soft natural-looking matte finish.

Can Veil Cover Cream counteract unwanted tones in the skin?

Yes. As well as being available in a wide range of shades to match a variety of skin tones, Veil Cover Cream is also available in colour correcting shades. These shades counteract unwanted toned in the skin giving you a more even-toned base. To learn more about this range check out our guide to colour correcting.

What skincare products are recommended to use alongside Veil Cover Cream?

As well as manufacturing Veil Cover Cream we also create a range of impressive skincare products which work wonderfully alongside our camouflage makeup range. This range includes our core products such as cleansing cream, toning lotion and our unbleached yellow soft paraffin. Alongside these products, you’ll also find our specialist skincare products designed to tackle Acne and the signs of ageing. Want to try this impressive range before purchasing full-size products? Our Skincare Sample Kit is the ideal product. This kit contains 6 sample sized skincare products which allow you to try out each skincare product to ensure that they’re compatible with your skin.

What is yellow soft paraffin used for and how does it compare to other well-known brands?

Yellow soft paraffin is a multi-use product that is also more commonly known as petroleum jelly. This product can be used to lock moisture into the skin thus preventing the skin from becoming dry, chapped and cracked. Yellow soft paraffin can be used on various areas such as the lips, hands, nails and heels. Veil Yellow Soft Paraffin differs from other brands as our petroleum jelly is unbleached. When it comes to yellow soft paraffin being bleached, this step is purely carried out to give the product a more appealing appearance. However, by carrying out this unnecessary step you create nasty fumes which then go into the air. Because of this, we don’t alter the appearance of our product. Therefore, Veil Soft Paraffin is kinder to the environment compared to other products that have been through the bleaching process.

Where are Veil products manufactured?

Veil products are manufactured in the United Kingdom by skilled craftspeople using high-quality ingredients to ensure that our products are of the best possible quality.
