Because Not Every Day Can Be About Lipgloss

My newest beauty discovery? Believe it or not, it's a bandage. Nothing short of glamorous here at Beauty Addict, friends!

I've become a bit of a band-aid connoisseur in recent weeks, as the scar on my arm isn't quite ready for its close-up, at least in public. I feel like I've tried every type of bandage on the market. The thick plastic ones stay on forever, but they don't breathe. The fabric ones get dirty, and they fray at the edges. Some are so flimsy that they slide off at the slightest whisper of humidity.

And don't get me started on the colors. They never really blend in with anyone's skin, do they? And the adhesive part, even on the clear bandages, is often so shiny that it still shows.

Then I discovered Band-Aid Perfect Blend Clear Bandages. The pad comes in 3 shades - Light, Medium, and Deep - not exactly an extensive range but it sure beats the generic "tan." Plus, these shades are closer to actual skin tones than the norm, which would be more at home on a plastic, peachy-tan Barbie.

Another plus? The clear adhesive strip on Perfect Blend bandages is nearly matte, so it doesn't draw extra attention to your "boo-boo" by reflecting light.

So unless you're still attached to your Winnie the Pooh or Disney Princess Band-Aids, I'd suggest taking the subtle route and picking up a package of Perfect Blend!
