This is the ONLY concealer I will use. Have used for a few years. The color is perfect, the consistency is perfect. The ingredients are truly natural. Smells heavenly. No problem with the packaging - don't put your finger to the felt tip. Instead dab the tip onto your face. Don't twist up too much or you'll waste precious product. As far as the alcohol goes - alcohol in natural products serves a purpose and is not carcinogenic (don't know where that other reviewer gets her info). It also helps to counteract the oils in the product so it doesn't remain a greasy mess on your skin - it helps the product to dry in place. Also I find it covers blemishes better if I apply some product, and let it sit for a minute to dry out a little bit, then gently blend over the blemish. I would not put anything but Dr. H on a blemish as it is broken skin -- why would anyone want to put a bunch of toxic chemicals on broken skin?

Sad. Sad. Sad. I really love this concealer for under eye circles: it works great & is a perfect match for my skin in the 02 shade. Like all Dr. Hauschka cosmetics, this product is subtle, very natural looking, and has that weirdly intoxicating Dr. H. smell (halfway between old-lady powder and herb-garden). However, as another reviewer pointed out, ethyl alcohol is the second ingredient! Ethyl alcohol is really bad for your skin, very drying, for one thing, and possibly carcinogenic for another (according to this website, which seems knowledgable : http://www.truthinaging.com/review/alcohol-in-cosmetics-is-it-safe). I spend a fortune trying to keep that area of my face moist, so drying it out with a concealer seems pretty dumb. I did some research, hoping to find out that Hauschka's ethyl alcohol is somehow better or different than other ethyl alcohols, but this seems not to be the case (I even asked their "live" ...ha ha... chat person about it, but got no response). They make a big deal on their website about their alcohol being wheat-based, but all ethyl alcohol is grain based. Apparently, this "bad" type of alcohol (even if it is food-grade) is used frequently in natural cosmetics because it is necessary for the extraction of various essential oils. A catch 22: you can't get the good stuff without soaking it in the bad stuff. If you are young or reckless enough not to care that ethyl alcohol is in your concealer, this stuff is great, but at 47, I'm looking for another product.

I'm really puzzled at the hype over the Dr Hauschka line .These products are anything but natural.and this concealer is no different. This lists alcohol as a top ingredient and it's HIGHLY fragranced. This is a product I bought to use around eyes!The toner I had was full of alcohol as well.I'm finished with Dr Hauschka, I really expected better.

GREAT concealer, does not emphasize undereye wrinkles. Smooth application, looks totally natural!

This is a pretty good concealer. The ingredients are pleasingly natural and actually work to heal blemishes. Which is good since if I am applying something directly to a blemish, it is nice to know that the formula will not serve to worsen the spot.
The packaging is pretty cool. With a little turn, the liquid concealer peers out of six or seven little holes in a spongey top. I simply dab it gently onto my skin and spread with my finger tip.
It is a little on the pricey side; I paid 18 euros. So hopefully it will last me a while. I've only had it for a few weeks, so it's hard to tell yet.
It also works well for under the eyes, and various other little discolourations.
Not bad, not bad, and I could see myself buying it again, depending on its longevity.

The consistancy is good, not too dry, not too liquid. The color has a pink-ish hue, which I thought at first would make blemishes more apparent, but once blended actually conceals them very well. I wouldn't be able to use this concealer alone, however, but I got it to wear under dr hauschka's foundation, anyways. The two work together nicely. For under-eye/sides of nose it works even better. It erases dark circles seemlessly. It's kinda pricey, I guess, I got it for 17.56. It actually helps to heal the blemishes too, though. That to me makes it worth the price. Already, in the few days I have been using it, it has calmed my skin, slightly. This is a good sign as my sensitive skin usually reacts the opposite to ANY cosmetic application. I found the best results in first moisturizing with dr hauschka's 'toned day cream', mixed with a bit of the foundtion, to even out my skin. Then conceal, then apply a bit more foundation where needed... I have bad skin. All in all, it looks wonderfully natural, covers blemishes/dark circles well, has a great scent and calms irritation. DEFINITELY SUGGEST :D

This concealer was quite nice. Seemed a good consistency and blended in well, I didn't have a problem with it. The colour was good for me too.
The packaging though is completely useless. It didn't seem very hygienic rubbing my finger on the felt tip. Then to make things worse, after only a few weeks of use, the stupid twisty thing seems to be broken and now I can't get any concealer out of it. In the rubbish you go. Waste of money on a product with stupid packaging.

I wish i would like this concealer, but sadly I cannot... It is too thick in general, difficult to apply in the undereye area, and when you cover a blemish it looks kind of cakey. A real pity, because I really love this brand's makeup quality.

Overall this is a good concealer for light concealing around the eyes or nose. It's not good at all for blemishes. I apply only a small amount to the inner and outer corners of my eyes after dusting on powder foundation and that's enough. It doesn't last all day and evening, but it's there for most of the day.
It's true that the packaging isn't great, and you have to twist it a LOT before the concealer comes out. So that makes me wonder how long this tube will actually last. And I don't love the color, so I need to use it sparingly or I will get orange spots in natural light.

Wow, I'm amazed with the negative reviews here! I like the product because it's rather fluid, and therefore blends in, doesn't turn cakey. I use shade 01 which is perfect to go along with the translucent tinted moisturixer shade 00, and with my fair skin. I apply the concealer with my finger tips in stead of with the sponge, and it works.
Under the eyes: perfect; I don't look awfully sleepy.
On spots: works ok.
