Review: Essential Care Concealer

Review: Essential Care Concealer

Essential Care is a Suffolk based company with a wide range of hair and body products as well as make up.  All products are natural, organic, not tested on animals and free from synthetic ingredients.  I accepted an offer to try their new concealer.

I have mentioned before I use very little makeup in terms of lipsticks, eye shadows and blusher but foundation and concealer are a staple.  Over the past year I have tried Natural Living and Priia concealers, the latter is my current go to product.   The Essential concealer is packaged similar to a lipstick.  It contains 100% pure mineral colours, organic plant extracts and designed for covering under eye circles, pimples and imperfections

Majority of the time I am looking to cover dark circles as luckily spots are only a once a month problem for me.  This concealer is soft and blends easily.  It appears to last a working day with a little bit of movement especially in fine lines however this is easily blended out using a finger. I decided the best way to demonstrate the product is with some before and after pictures. 

Sugarpuffish Reviews Essential Care Concealer
I have been very happy with the results. My dark pigmentation is covered in a way that is very natural.  I am not a fan of illuminating concealer that often give you a shimmery shadow.  For my USA readers the results and consistency are identical to the Priia concealer. 

I have been using the colour fair but it is also available in medium.  This retails for £17.50 but is currently on special offer at £14.  I highly recommend you check out the Essential Care website and browse the product range.

  1. How did it rate against covering any blemishes (if you have any!), I've been looking for a stick alternative to mineral powder for a little while

    1. I'm sitting on fence when it comes to blemishes. I tend to suffer from very red pimples and nothing manages to cover them successfully. This toned down the colouration but I am not certain it hid them all together. Hope that helps :)

    2. Thanks Sarah. It's really difficult I guess to hide blemishes altogether without seeing the concealer on the skin either. It's either disguise the blemish a little and not see the concealer or hide it completely and see the concealer.
      Personally as a guy I'd pick a natural look with slight improvement any day lol

  2. Lovely review! The coverage looks really natural but does a great job at covering darkness... Not sure if it's worth the price tag, though.

    1. Thanks for the comment, we are all different but personally I am willing to pay a higher price for an organic, natural, free from synthetic ingredient product that is less likely to cause me allergic reactions :)

  3. Great review, I'm trying this out at the moment too and have been really liking it. I was expecting it to crease because it's so creamy so I was very surprised when it didn't! x

  4. This looks nice! I like my RMS Beauty un-cover up, but it's too light for me at the moment. It creases a little bit, but it's a natural product. Have you tried anything from RMS Beauty?

    1. I am not familiar with RMS Beauty, I haven't experienced many US natural brands, I always buy British or Australian. Looks like I could get hold of it in UK but it's a little on the expensive side

  5. I'm also trying the rms uncover up I got a sample from being content! I really like it and covers under eye and spots and can be used as extra foundation if It wears thin throughout the day. I'm looking forward to trying other brand so seeing other people try them is great!
