Of all the reasons to stay in bed, a cold sore definitely tops the list. Just one look in the mirror makes you want to run and hide! But now thanks to the experts at Abreva®, flare-ups don’t have to be such a downer.

New Abreva® Conceal™ is unlike any cold sore coverage you’ve ever known. The clear, non-medicated patch instantly conceals your blister or blemish and enables you to apply makeup on top—all the while creating a protective barrier that allows air in while keeping contaminants out. The results are flawless…so you can go on looking (and feeling) fabulous!

To use, simply follow these step-by-step instructions:
1. Gently Clean and dry the area where the patch will go.
2. Peel the applicator tab from the clear backing, without touching the sticky circle
3. Press on Conceal™ firmly in the center, and hold for 15 seconds.
4. Gently pull away the applicator tab at a slight angle.
5. Powder and follow your daily makeup regimen, tip stipple your normal foundation with a sponge for a flawless finish
