The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer

This is something that I've bought maybe a year ago, I can't remember clearly. The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer. 

I wears concealer every time going out as my undereye dark circle is heavy and I don't wish to scares people off. Hahaha... This is the first concealer I've ever bought and for some reason The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer is also a monkey's best friend. 

I was persuaded by the SA, this concealer contains Marula Oil, as what you can see the white color stuff in the middle of concealer from the picture above. Marula Oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, it moisturizes and provides hydrating and smooth finish. Thus, I was sold. 

What is a concealer ? Does it supposed to cover or at least minimizes the imperfections such as blemishes, dark circles or scars? I just need something can minimizes or brighten up my undereye area and this concealer is totally disappointment me. 

The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Concealer does not conceal anything, does not provides me flawless skin, does not hydrate or moisture my skin and it makes things worse. This concealer looks cakey on me, yellowish undertone and dries my undereye area. Everytime I've applied this concealer, all I can see is my lines are more visible and no matter how much I wants to smooth out the lines, it just never works. Not only that, with the helps of Marula Oil it suppose to be hydrates and moisture in order to protects undereye area but it seems doesn't work for me. Initially, I thought is my undereye area too dry for the concealer application hence I'd added up the dosage of eye cream and moisturize the skin around but the results were still the same. 

The concealer is smooth and creamy on my fingers but it just cakes on me everytime I'm using it. At the end, I've given up on it and bought a new concealer from I-Nuovi.   


  1. oh so sorry to hear this didn't work out...

  2. Yes, I'm quite disappointed with this concealer. I'm using it again today after so many months, it still the same not working for me. The texture is creamy, which I thought would be great for concealing my dark circles but it doesn't work at all. Seems like the creamy texture dries my skin even more.

  3. wow doesn't conceal anything! that's strong words but powerful. i will not be bothered looking into this then. thanks.

  4. hahaha... but other than that I really can't think out any words to describe it.. LoLz...
