theBalm Time Balm Concealer in Medium


Undereye circles don’t stand a chance against theBalm Time Balm concealer.  Not a chance.  Its full-coverage formula is full-on amazing.

The wide topped jar makes it easy to apply with a finger or brush and the creamy consistency makes blending a breeze.  The claims of this little jar of wonder are quite lofty.  But as I am already fighting the signs of aging around my eyes, I’m more than happy to use a power-packed makeup item that also promises skin care benefits.

Use this uniquely smooth anti-wrinkle concealer all day to cover dark circles and imperfections while protecting your delicate skin from environmental stresses. timeBalm is packed with beneficial ingredients including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Soybean Oil, Panthenol, Linoleic Acid and Phospholipids to help you look absolutely stunning around the clock.


How to use: Pat timeBalm on in the AM and PM to conceal dark circles and protect your delicate eye area from environmental stresses. Apply it to a clean face before you go to bed to fight wrinkles while you sleep and wake up looking fabulous.

I don’t exactly have plans to wear makeup to bed (I’ll let my eye cream treat my delicate skin in the PM), but I love the idea of beneficial ingredients helping things out all day.

Time Balm is one of those concealers that can be worn without foundation (hallelujah!) to cover undereye circles or spots (for comparison I applied it to the one on my chin, but not the one by my brows).  This tells me it can also be worn with tinted moisturizer – not an easy thing to do with many true full-coverage concealers.  It also offers nine shades, from Lighter than Light to After Dark, which is more than many other brands can claim.

Do you wear full-coverage concealer?  Do you ever wear concealer without foundation?


Price: $21.00

Summary: theBalm Time Balm Concealer is a versatile product with added skin care benefits.  I recommend using it over spots or for undereye circles.  While it isn’t brightening, the yellow tones of Medium don’t make my skin look sallow.  And the small amount needed for full coverage is certainly appreciated.

    I’ve looked at this concealer before but never pulled the trigger in actually buying it! I love the coverage on you, and that is pretty amazing that they offer such a wide range of shades!

    • Alison M

      They extended the shade range recently (I think in the last year?) and definitely love the options. If you’re a full-coverage or concealer-in-a-pot kind of girl, I say go for it!

  • Erin

    I’ve never tried this one, but it looks great on you! Definitely something I’ll look out for.

      Worth picking up if you have dark circles to cover. They extended the shade range so there should be something for everyone :)
