This Serum-Concealer Hybrid Just Deleted My Dark Circles

For most of my twenties, I've managed to dodge dark circles—up until now. It was almost like they crept up overnight and appeared one morning. Now (at least to me) they look more prominent than they have ever been. As we know, there are multiple causes for dark circles, ranging from genetics to lifestyle factors, but all in all, there is nothing that can really 'get rid' of dark circles (any eye cream that promises to completely make them disappear is just clever marketing, and ultimately your money down the drain). With that in mind, I've chosen to accept them for what they are and go for the next best bet: diguise them with an arsenal of really good under eye concealers.

In my time as a beauty editor, countless under eye concealers have passed my desk and it takes a really good one to stand out. On an evening scroll on TikTok. I saw glowing reviews for Erborian's new Super BB Concealer. My interest was piqued and I decided to give it a try for myself. Having long been a fan of Erborian's BB Cream, I had high hopes for the concealer. Scroll ahead for my honest thoughts and before and afters.

Here is my skin with makeup and without any concealer around my eyes. My under eye darkness is almost blue in colour and appears more towards the inner corners of my eyes, which is where I find I need a helping hand to brighten.

The serum-concealer hybrid comes in a tube with a flexible doe-foot applicator. I tried the shade Nude, the second lightest shade Erborian offers. On first trying it, I was surprised at just how much coverage it provided, even in a silky serum consistency. I applied a couple of dots around the inner part of my under eyes to start.

To blend, I used a densely bristled concealer brush to diffuse the product, but it also blends easily when patted in with fingertips. I was amazed at how it instantly brightened and concealed my under eye darkness with a medium yet buildable coverage. Amazingly, even with its impressive coverage it felt and looked lightweight, sinking into the skin without cakeing.

Side-by-Side Comparison

Here is a side by side of the concealer on the left and without concealer on the right. The left looks more radiant and brighter, and I like that the concealer dries done into a hydrating, radiant finish that is neither too dewy that it slips and slides throughout the day, nor too matte that it's drying. It's just right. I also tried it on blemishes and it easy disguised redness.

Is Erborian Super BB Concealer Worth It?

Is the Erborian Super BB Concealer worth it? In my opinion, yes. I love the radiant and brightening finish that helps to disguise my dark under eyes. The fact that it's also infused with skincare ingredients niacinamide, ginseng and SPF 25 also means that it helps to treat dark circles and blemishes as it conceals too. However, I do wish that the shade range was more extensive, particularly for darker skin tones. Although the concealer has a lightweight serum consistency, the coverage is great, which means that it might not stretch across skin tones as much as you'd might expect from a serum-concealer. A little goes a long way, so the £35 tube will last well, even if you're using it every day.
