Most Helpful Positive Review Impressively smooth coverage and looks natural
I have a love hate relationship with most concealers. The ones that provide the best coverage end up cooking crepey or cakey and the ones that provide sheer coverage don't do my eyes justice when it comes to fading dark spots and making bags less noticeable. That is not the case with Burt's Bee's concealer. It provides moderate coverage and applies very smoothly. Once blended it dries to a very nice matte but not dry looking finish.
I was actually really impressed that the product was created with natural ingredients. I have a light medium skin tone but I tend to go with a lighter shade when it comes to concealers because I don't want to further darken my under eye area. I ordered "fair" and it was just enough to brighten without looking too pale. The coverage is also build-able. When the first layer dries you can always apply a second coat if you need more. I used the wand to apply the first swipe of product and used my finger along with a beauty blender to blend it out which worked marvelously.
Overall I am very happy with the results. My under eye area appeared much nicer looking and the product worked well with all of my other makeup. Additionally it does not irritate my eyes and is long lasting.
Most Helpful Critical Review Terrible
After moisturizing and applying my base I went in with this concealer under my eyes and to highlight between my brows. This is were it all went wrong. Concealer dries almost instantly and becomes unmovable. I tried buffing it out with warm fingers then later a wet beauty blender to no avail. In fact it started pulling all the foundation from between my brows and peeling under my eyes.

I've never come across such an awful product from BB. The formula is very runny but dries instantly once you apply it on the face. I tried to blend it out but it dries so fast. I typically use my fingers for application and most of it dried up on my fingers while leaving super patchy spots on my skin. I mainly use concealer for my dark circles and don't mind coverage on the lighter side for a more natural look but this literally does nothing. Even the one time I managed to blend it out decently my dark circles looked exactly the same. Do not get this!!
Not Worth the Price Tag
Bella from New York
It wasn't great at what it was supposed to do but it did try. By that I mean the coverage wasn't great and it got clumpy and faded almost completely by the end of the day. Definitely not worth the insane price tag.
Have to work with it, but I enjoy it
Krod from Texas
Ok I'm not going to lie, I hated this concealer when I first got it. If you want full coverage this is definitely not it. Not only that but this is one of the few concealers that I have to swipe and drag to blend it in rather than dab with a beauty sponge.
However I go to the gym fairly often and I hate wearing makeup, but I also have slight darkness on my eyes that I'm not too confident in showing. This concealer is the perfect sheer brightener that is not cakey, doesn't crease, and definitely doesn't look like you're wearing makeup which is perfect for the gym. Plus the fact that it is 98% natural is always a plus; it's the perfect product for a no makeup makeup look. So if you're just looking to brighten your under eyes and don't need full coverage, this will be perfect for you.
Not Their Best
Keke from MO
I love Burt's Bees products and I swear by their facial scrub. But ugh. Yeah. This concealer was really disappointing. I don't usually write reviews, but it was just horrible in quality. Won't keep me from using their products though! Still love Burt's Bees.
I would never buy this product again
Sarah from Ontario Canada
It's really bad it simply doesn't do anything. It's just a bland beige paste, absolutely no results whatsoever. Very disappointing I don't think I will ever buy Burt's bees, their mascara is also same thing does not work at all.
Great for sensivitve skin
pudgyst from Los Angeles, CA
I loved that this concealer did not irritate my skin. It blended well into my skin...however I wish the light/medium wasn't too much on the super light side, because I know if I pick the next shade it will be too dark. But overall, I'm happy with this purchase and product.
PamelaK from undisclosed
This concealer is very thin and runny consistency, I just needed something to cover small acne spots on my forehead and this did not conceal at all. Best to use if you're looking to "highlight" somewhere on your face. Does not conceal.
i would give this zero stars if i could
anna from New Jersey, USA
terrible! first of all, it smells very strongly of sunscreen. this is a nightmare to blend out. once you blend it out, it basically clumps up and disappears. and worst of all, the shade range! there's only three shades, what? the darkest shade wouldn't even match many people with a medium/dark skin tone. will not buy a again.
Works great with the liquid foundation!
Kate from Gilbert, AZ
I'm wearing this for the first time day along with the Burt's Bees liquid foundation and it's working great so far! Love it!
Crease Free Perfection
Roobear from Cincinnati, Ohio
This concealer was better than I imagined it would be! Not only did it provide excellent coverage, but it did so without creasing. I have bought this product multiple times since being introduced to it, and I love it!
I don't want to say life changing, but!
Isabelle from Manhattan, KS
Perfect for an effortless natural look. I use it on its own without foundation just to add a bit of flow and coverage. It's a perfect match for my skin - I'm a pale red head and the lightest one is like a match made in heaven. So easy to apply. Buildable. and amazing. This was the product that got me on the Burts Bees makeup kick and I haven't gone back
Dark spots be gone!
Brgs2012 from Muskego, WI
I am "blessed" with hyper-pigmentation so I feel as though I've been a guinea pig for the perfect concealer for years now! My search ended when I found this concealer from Burt's Bees! It is easy to apply and truly provides full coverage for even my darkest spots! My confidence has been restored now that I don't have to worry about my age showing (literally).
Not a fan
bmag from Chiacgo
This did not work to cover darkness under my eyes. It did not absorb or blend well at all, ended up clumping and coming right off. I love burts bees products, but not this one.
Merci from Illinois
It's great...if you blend. Ranks up there with high end. Brightens the inner corner. Blend with the touch/tap of s brush.
Good coverage but a bit dry
Penny from Oregon
I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees makeup because it's non-toxic beauty at a drugstore price, but this is not my favorite product. The coverage is quite good but the consistency is pretty dry. Good for the face but not for under the eyes. I may try adding a drop or two of facial oil to the comtainer just to see if it makes it a bit more emollient.
THIS WORKS FOR ME
JodyR from Irvine, CA
My skin is drier so I do need an emollient eye cream under this concealer. The coverage is a lighter one but it covers well with a couple of applications. I love it as an eyeshadow base, too. I use the Light/Medium shade along with the BB cream in Light/Medium or Goodness Glows Foundation in Almond Beige.
Another great addition to my Burt's Bees collectio
Elizwdean from Maryland
Great for a full face of make up. Completed the look with bb cream, concealer, and matte foundation
Works well to cover Red Spots
AngelMommie from Northern IL
I use it to cover the occasional Pimple/Red Spot and it works very well to cover and blends easily.
Works great for my needs
LooksNatural from DC
I've been using high end natural/organic makeup products for many years, but due to a big move, they aren't as readily available to me, anymore. Enter Burt's Bees new concealer, which I realized was readily available at many stores and online and also a $$ saving option. Due to very sensitive skin and eyes, every cosmetic product is a trial and error for me, even if I know the ingredient list. Day to day, I just need a dab of this around slight hyperpigmentation around my mouth over the Burt's Bees BB Cream (which also works great for my skin). The Fair color is perfect for my fair neutral skin tone. It blends in very well and brightens the areas where I put it. I thankfully have not had a huge spot to cover lately, but I have been able to use a layering technique with some powder to conceal small spots with some level of effectiveness.
ARose from Keene, NH
Toothpaste spreads better than this. It was dry and patchy and made my skin look so much worse. It doesn't blend well at all.
Poor coverage and splotchy
Melba16 from Michigan
I thought my foundation was splotchy and was dissapointed until I realized it was only splotchy in the areas I put the concealer. I also put on several layers and I can still easily see my dark shadows beneath.
shade range is racist
phiphi from undisclosed
Do better burts bees. This product is made for white people only. Deeper skin likes natural products too.
The product was awful
Tanner Tonge from Las Vegas NV
The product has no pigment once blended into the skin... intact it takes of the foundation out with it and leaves patches and or a caked spot that doesn't blend well... I wish I could get my money back
I wanted to love this, but...
kps1 from Richmond, VA
I wanted to love this concealer and was excited to find a natural liquid concealer at the drugstore. However, I have tried it for a couple of weeks while I'm around the house all day, and it seems a bit dry and doesn't cover dark circles under my eyes which is the only thing I use concealer for. Because it is drying, I end up with dark creases near my eye (making me look tired and aged), no matter how moisturized my skin is beforehand. Maybe I have the wrong color for my skin. I have found that blending it in with a brush rather than a beauty sponge works a little bit better. I wanted to love this product but can't seem to get it to work with satisfying results. I don't wear a lot of makeup but covering dark circles under my eyes is a priority! It needs a little more pigmentation and a little more moisture.
Not bad, not great
cev12 from MA
This concealer gets extra points because I love that it's natural but,
Pros: color match (not yellow or orange for once), natural ingredients, covers shadows and undereye circles well
Cons: coverage is light-medium (seems like concealer should be more full coverage), catches on spots/blemishes (so covers the color, then shows and worsens the texture...)
