Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream is hands down, one ofย the most popular and most affordable concealers from Korea. Here’s my review.
Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream is, as the name suggests, a concealer for covering dark under eyes circles. Salmon roe extract also helps to brighten the whole under eye area. Lanolin oil hydrates and moisturizes the sensitive skin under the eyes. Creamy formula that doesn’t dry out the delicate skin under the eyes, and doesn’t crease either.
My expectations on Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream were pretty high since this is one of Korea’s most popular and best concealers according to reviews and blogs. I personally have high demands on a concealer because I have both dry and mature skin. I wouldn’t wanna look like a dehydrated wrinkled turtle in the desert if you know what I mean. When I first saw the jar, I thought to myself that the color was way too dark for me. I bought the brightest shade #01 Light / Salmon Blooming but it still looked quite dark in the jar.
I have a typical “scandinavian” light and pale skin tone. Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream in color #01 was actually perfect for me. Even though the product looks a bit dark in the jar, it adapts very well to the skin tone strangely enough. This Korean concealer comes in a decent jar that will last for months and months. The product is densed, very concentrated and highly pigmented. A little goes a long way. It’s still very creamy and easy to apply. Not at all drying to the skin, kind of “oily” feel almost.
I applied Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream by taking a small amount of product on my finger tip and lightly tap my finger around the under eye area. The skin actualy looks brighter straight away. The color is barely visible and blends in very well with the natural skin tone. I could probably wear this concealer alone without any foundation, and that has probably never happened before. Very natural finish in other words. Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream works well to hide dark circles under the eyes. It can also be used to brighten up the entire under eye area, the inner corners of the eyes or under / around the nose. Use it anywhere you want to brighten and cover up. The before and after images below shows using 2-3 thin layers of concealer on completely naked skin.
If you are looking for a concealer with full coverage, or if you have very dark under eye circles, then Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream is not the right concealer for you. But if you’re looking for a concealer that provides a light to medium coverage and that brightens up the entire under eye area with a natural result, then Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream is absolutely perfect. The product hides dark circles under the eyes without drying the skin nor emphasizing wrinkles or lines. I have dry mature skin, and almost every concealer makes me look dry and wrinkly, except for Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream! This creamy concealer can be built up in layers wherever you need coverage. It melts into the skin and looks absolutely natural. I also feel that it stays in place all day and doesn’t crease much at all. Awesome!
The texture of Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream is dense and concentrated yet creamy and almost a “fatty” type feel. Perfect for the very thin skin under the eyes which is usually dry. I would recommend this concealer to all skin types, unless you have oily skin under the eyes. Can possibly be perceived as “sticky” or “greasy” but then you can easily set it with some powder after application. Works well both under and on top of foundation. For like 5 euros with free shipping from Korea, it’s a steal for such a big jar. I clearly understand why Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream is one of the best and most popular Korean concealers. I’m sold! Thumbs up from me. This will definitely be a holy grail “must have” product in my makeup routine from now on!
Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream covers and brightens with a very natural result. For 5 euros it’s a steal and worth every penny. I love this concealer!
Some think that Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream smells like salmon/fish but I don’t fully agree! This product has a very unique smell indeed if you stick your nose into the jar. I personally feel the product smells more like skin care and not like an old fish. But if you are very sensitive to scents than take this into consideration. Another negative is that you stick your finger straight into the jar, not very sanitary. A concealer brush is more hygienic. (The product is ideal however, to apply using your finger tip).
