The first and the oldest concealer in my make-up arsenal is The Body Shop’s Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer in Shade 2.
The Body Shop claims that:
This cream-to-powder concealer is designed to cover blemishes and redness. It blends easily and is non-drying.
- Easy to blend
- Dermatologically tested
Since this is the oldest concealer I have, I don’t have a record on how much it was (yes, I have this template of prices of skin care/make-up I had purchased since 2010). But it definitely was somewhere P1,000 ($24), but definitely not above. The concealer houses 2.3g of the product inside its silver tube. That’s quite plenty.
I got Shade 02, because that time it felt that it was the best shade that matches my skin. 03 was a little too dark (and I’m quite acidic too). I didn’t pick 01 because it felt that it was a tad too light for me. I had a guy friend tagged along during the purchase, and he didn’t help much in deciding.
The main selling point of this concealer is the moisturizer core. The concealer part is the outer layer whereas this core supposedly moisturizes the applied area.
Since it is creamy, it is quite easy to blend into the skin. I have to admit, it conceals my panda eyes quite well while not providing a made up look. It gives medium coverage, depends on how you build it up. It doesn’t sit in your lines, as long as you’ve prepped up nicely. I haven’t tried this on acne, but I prefer not putting make-up on it since it might aggravate it more.
But I still feel like I might get a better product given the budget. Either than or I didn’t give this much of a chance. I’m not good with blending stick concealers under my eyes, you see. And before, my make-up skills was meh.
This may be good to normal to dry skin types, as long you prepped up nicely. Extra dry skin (like me, under my eyes only) to extra oily might want to think harder in purchasing this.
I might give this a try in the future, probably their All-in-one concealer, but I just have so much concealers right now, waiting to be tried on (Skinfood, Tony Moly, Etude House, Missha and Benefit). Yes, I have Missha. I just bought it yesterday. I shall be posting my haul August-Mid September haul soon. If I get a good photo of them.
