We’ve told you countless times to never go to bed wearing makeup, but this two-in-one concealer and anti-aging treatment proves there’s an exception to every rule. theBalm® sourced the best skincare ingredients and put them all in one creamy, non-comedogenic formula. It’s so pure that you can wear it 24/7—no kidding. By day, it serves to hide our puffy circles and other flaws. By night, it works to undo the look of fine lines and wrinkles (your fancy serums and creams will feel neglected).
But the packaging is not so good.
I love the formula, hides things well, stays put, etc.
However, the edges of the lid have a tendancy to crack, and the whole cap becomes non-useable.
I've been using this product for a few months now. The first time I used it I was disappointed, but with so many positive reviews I thought maybe my application was off. I've been using it for 3 months now and tried applying it my brushes, pads and my finger tips with different degree of the amount of product.
I noticed that if I applied too lightly, I wouldn't see a satisfying coverage. If I applied what I thought a normal amount, if would fill the fine lines a few minutes after my application and I'd have to continue to go back over it a few times it remove the streaking.
I also noticed that the longer I used it the product started becoming greasier. The container is cute and small kind of like a lip balm container, but the lid is now broken so it can't even screw on. It stays at home all day so it hasn't been in any rough scenarios to damage the lid. Just seems like cheap plastic or poor construction. The sponge also doesn't last long, so look for buying other small sponge applicator (you probably want to replace it with a clean one anyway).
So I could deal with all these things about the product and just use it as a nightly cream , but thats if I saw results. After 3 months, I haven't seen any improvement with the fine lines after my eyes. If anything, I've noticed some lines becoming more deeper.
So I'd suggest not purchasing until you sample the product. The small amount has lasted awhile, but the container doesn't. And I'd hold on to your other eye creams :)
I've been using this as my undereye concealer for awhile and I really like it. Covers and blends better and more easily than a liquid in my opinion, and doesn't crease much (though i always put at least a little bit of a neutral shadow on my lids to prevent getting concealer goop in the crease). And it claims to be antiaging! And it's cheap!!
BUT I'm on my second one and both times the cheap plastic lid snapped and broke off in multiple places within a week or two of receipt, even when I was extra careful with the second jar. This means I can't cover the concealer so it will dry out faster, get dirty, and can't be used for travel. I really should throw them both out but like the product itself too much. Has anyone tried this and can recommend a similar product with better packaging?
I find this better for spot correction rather than around my eyes- I like something a bit more moisturizing and brighter around my eyes. Probably best for oily/combination skin types.3
I never wear concealer but i wanted to try this one and i was a little disappointed. I tried it under my eyes and it seemed to crease really quickly (like almost immediately!) so i wasn't happy about that. I like that it has skin treatment in it and i think i will keep trying it and maybe i can figure out a better way to apply it where it sticks better.2
I just don't believe this product worked for me. I ordered it because I was looking for something to minimize the look of my fine lines and wrinkles under my eyes, didn't do the job for me. I use theBalm products and rarely find one I don't like, but this was that one for me!2
I love this product as a concealer - it goes on smoothly, stays and feels moisturizing. That being said, I'm not sure it actually does anything as an anti-aging product. For the price, I'm ok with it just being a great under eye concealer. It definitely brightens up my under eye area and doesn't settle into lines.4
It goes on so smooth and blend- able!
It stays on great and covers. I feel like it actually improves skin...
I have sensitive, highly breakout prone skin normally. Since I've been using the Balm concealer, I have little to no breakouts! Plus, it evens my skin tone and makes my skin look younger. Not sure how it works but it does! It is light & I don't even know I have it on and it never gets cakey, even when you layer more on. Plus, the best part is that I can fall asleep with it on and not panic about inevitable breakouts in the morning. I LOVE this stuff!!5
I love this product. It's small enough to hide in your purse, and it gives just enough coverage without becoming cake. It's perfect for someone who just needs a little help without wanting to wear full makeup especially on beach days. Will buy again.5
