According to The Body Shop website:

"Light-diffusing particles instantly brighten skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines while coated pigments help promote a radiant complexion.
Zinc oxide reduces the appearance of blemish-damaged, red and irritated skin.
Community Trade marula oil from Namibia helps to repair skin’s moisture barrier, leaving skin soft and supple."

I have this concealer in Shade 01. It's housed in a shiny silver tube and the closure is pretty sturdy, the cap hasn't fallen off since I got this late last year. The concealer is retractable like a lipstick and if you look at the middle of the tube you will see that the concealer surrounds a somewhat translucent tube like wood to lead in a pencil. I remember the SA mentioning that this is the part of the concealer that keeps skin moisturized so I suppose this is the marula oil component.

The concealer itself is rather creamy, but when it's cold it dries up somewhat. For this reason I roll the stick between my palms and warm it up at the back of my hand as well before using my fingers to apply it. TBS recommends using a brush, but I've never tried it. Coverage is pretty good, and buildable. I have red spots on my cheeks and redness on my nose & corners of the mouth, and this is an all-in-one product for those. I like dabbing a bit of this on my undereyes as well, but not too much since it can settle into fine lines. It's true that this promotes a "radiant complexion"; after setting my face with powder it looks really nice. I have not experienced breakouts from using this, and I usually never have to reapply. I'd like to try concealers from other brands as well but I'm glad I have this to come back to. I recommend it :)
