Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream Review

Salmon is a popular food because of it’s healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and high vitamin content plus it’s ever so tasty isn’t it? It also happens to be the theme surrounding the new Skin Food collection available now in stores.

The line is a concentrated formula rich in omega-3 fatty acid, haloxyl, arbutin and vitamins to improve blood circulation and whiten skin. It includes not only a concealer but also a brightening powder and several creams and serums for use under the eyes.

Aside from the salmon-like formula it also sports a salmon color which is always ideal for covering severe dark circles.

Jump ahead for the review on Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream.

As with many Skin Food items, Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream comes housed in cute vintage style packaging. Available in a large size jar at a very inexpensive price this should last you quite a long time if you’re lucky enough to snag it at retail.

The concealer is decently pigmented and is tinted a salmon, peach shade. For the most part I prefer my concealer to be whiter and brighter in color as I think these work best for making my tired, older eyes look more awake and refreshed however I can’t deny that a peachy, salmon shade of concealer is best for concealing heavy dark shadows and circles. The formula is nicely moisturizing, doesn’t crease or cake, and wears quite long throughout the day. It’s shade may prove difficult to wear for some who prefer a light shade of concealer like me but with a little blending you’ll come out looking quite natural.

Skin Food is a Korean brand shop and store that caters to more natural, organic lines of both skincare and cosmetics. Exclusive to Korea at first it’s since branched out to Singapore, Japan, and other Asian countries. Sadly, it’s not available yet within the US and probably never will be but one can hope. Now this in turn brings me to the fact of where you can get this. The best place to locate it it would be on E-bay. The cheapest price I’ve seen is around $15 which includes shipping. It’s original price tag is 8,000KRM, roughly $6.50. As you can see the price is considerably higher on E-bay.

Is it worth the price jack?

Overall, it manages to conceal dark circles very well. It’s creamy formula makes it ideal for dry eyes that are younger or older. It has a good long wear and keeps eyes looking awake and fresh all day long. I think it’s worthy of a pick up and a Muse Approval for purchase.


Anyone try yet?

Loving it?

    • 10/7/09 9:21 the Muse:

  • 10/17/09 7:23 Pooja:

    I actually have the eye cream & I am using it consistently like it,But since I buy it from ebay It works out to be Expensive.But The concealer looks nice , not sure of the peach shade will it suit all complexions?


    • 10/19/09 16:29 the Muse:

      hi pooja! awesome :) I know ebay stinks sometimes right? It really depends as there are two shades available light and medium. I wouldn’t say it suits all complexions but it does suit yellow tone, medium fair…or so. hope this helps!


    • 10/19/09 16:30 the Muse:

      hi pooja.

      awesome! I know..ebay stinks :( not sure but it does well on yellow tone or medium fair skin but don’t rec it for deeper…it actually comes in two shades…light and medium….. hope this helps!


  • 10/18/09 11:49 Lisa:

    I would also love to see pics of this on you! I kinda hate to buy something without seeing some swatches…

    • 4/2/11 2:16 cher:

      hi, i just wanna ask about the skin food salmon concealer that you got in #1 is it too light?


  • 3/28/10 5:53 betty:

    Hi Muse!

    I finally got this and has been using it for the past weeks. I really love it. It conceals my dark circles so well and I have ridiculously dark circles ^-^

    Thanks so much for the review. I discover so many awesome products from your blog.


    • 3/29/10 10:34 the Muse:

      yay betty! that’s great news hun ๐Ÿ˜€ fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!! aw I’m so glad!


  • 4/4/10 20:46 mary joyce:

    hi lovely muse! i have been reading your concealer reviews, and it all boils down to 3 concealers that i think will suit me . I have to preorder them but the prices are not that jacked up so its okay. So, the question is, almong these 3, which do you think can cover dark circles best and can last a loooooong while? I don’t have the time to re-apply when at work already…

    Skinfood salmon concealer
    Shills electric concealer
    Kevin beautymaker aqua concealer

    I have tried all sorts of concealer ( MAC< Shu, etc) and i think i need a new one for my dark circles are really getting worse. Bobbi Brown and LM's concealer is tad too expensivo for me at the moment, and from what i have been reading and myself experienced, Korean makeup or taiwanese makeup is really good

    thanks so much!


    • 4/5/10 16:22 the Muse:

      hello mary ๐Ÿ˜€ good to meet you!

      Mmmm it’s hard to say as they are ALL really good but the salmon concealer is prob best for wearing and tearing ๐Ÿ˜€ It has a good tacky feel so it sticks around longest.

      Hope this helps hun!

      Let me know how it works out for you!


  • 4/25/10 19:33 Jc Li:

    Which one is better between salmon concealer n peach sake?


    • 4/26/10 11:42 the Muse:

      they are both very good jc li


  • 5/7/10 0:40 Becca:

    Ello! First off, I LOVE that you review Asian products! ๐Ÿ˜€ Every time I enter an Asian market I think of you, and while I’m in the makeup aisle, I visit your site to see if the product I’m interested in has been reviewed by you. Aha ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks so much for sharing your pictures and thoughts about so many different products.

    I wonder how this salmon concealer compares to Eve Pearl’s (which I own and love!). My friend’s in Shanghai right now and will be hitting up Korea on her way back to the States. Since reading your blog, I have been trying to compile a list of things I want her to get while she’s over there, but it’s been quite a feat. Aha ๐Ÿ˜› I have sensitive skin, so I’m hoping the Skin Food might be kind to me. Do you have any suggestions for must have (LOVES IT! :D) Korean products? I’ve also heard good things about the Face Shop. Do you know much about that brand? Hrmm, this is turning out to be quite a lengthy comment, but any help would be appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜€ Much gratitude!


    • 5/10/10 9:24 the Muse:

      hi becca. aw thanks. I appreciate you reading musings so much!!!!

      I’m not sure as I never tried the Eve Pearl so sadly can’t compare. I have alot of different loves from Korea I’d suggest reading through my past categories on “Korean Brand” as there are SO many things I love and this will be extremely helpful for you to make your list with :) I have a few reviews on the face shop as well, just look through that category and you can see :) these are located on the left hand side of the screen.

      Hope this helps :)


  • 5/8/10 13:06 sheLLey:

        • 5/11/10 11:35 the Muse:

          my pleasure shelley :)


  • 6/30/10 22:11 denise:

    i was searching around your site for a review of a certain prod. i can’t help but post my comments into this concealer. I bought the same concealer (skinfood stores are available in my country) and their powder. i love the coverage. but it’s quite hard to apply though. i also love the smell and its cute packaging. ๐Ÿ˜€


    • 7/1/10 9:28 the Muse:

      aw sorry to hear it denise, I love it! ๐Ÿ˜€ blends dreamy on me ๐Ÿ˜€


  • 9/5/10 6:28 Ryou:

    Hmm, once I’m back in Indonesia I think I’m snagging this and the powder. If I may know, what’s your MAC shade? I’m a NW25 (Medium neutral/warm) and am currently wondering which shade would work for me.

    Thanks Musey! ๐Ÿ˜€


    • 9/7/10 9:34 the Muse:

      I think I’m an NC25-30 ryou? but not sure as I don’t use MAC foundation.


  • 11/6/10 15:34 Tantouna:

    Thank you Muse for this great review!!! I have been looking for a good concealer for a while and after reading your blog, I went ahead and bought this concealer (#1) on eBay! I received it 2 days ago and just looooooooooove it!! It is so easy to apply (with a concealer brush) and works like magic. Love it love it! I also bought the Skinfood makeup remover milkshake based on your review, and it works like a charm.
    Thank you so much for sharing these with us!! Your website is fantastic!


    • 11/8/10 12:31 the Muse:

      aw thank you so much for the great comment Tantouna! So glad you’re loving this concealer and the remover hun!!!!!!!!!!! fantastic ;-D I love hearing success stories!


  • 4/4/11 16:28 addi:

    hi muse, i recently came across your website and i love the reviews that you do :) i’m chinese, of slightly tanned colour. which shade do you recommend for me?


    • 4/4/11 16:36 the Muse:

      Hi addi thanks for visiting. I can’t really recommend a shade for you without every having seen you before. It’s a bit hard to say hi I’m tanned what color is for me…I’m so sorry.


  • 7/15/11 15:21 LovelyOrchids:

    I wish I know your blog before I ordered this concealer. I read about this concealer from other blogger who has the same skin tone (NC 25-30) like I am and bought color #2 from Ebay. Turn out, #2 is too dark on me although the concealer is good and creamy. Now I use it as corrector and use another lighter concealer on top of it. If I have know and read your blog, I would have order #1 instead.


    • 7/15/11 15:23 the Muse:

      hi lovely so sorry you got the wrong shade :-( but at least you’re making use of it as a corrector ;-D YesStyle carries it now if that’s any help…but a little costly $$ :-/


  • 9/21/11 6:36 Angela:

    Hi! which one do u think is better, this one or the peach sake perfect concealer? :)


    • 9/21/11 16:42 the Muse:

      i like this best angela :)


  • 11/5/11 5:54 celline:

    Great review. Will surely try this out myself. :)


  • 1/9/12 1:07 Lady Godiva:

    Is the peach sake one any lighter than this? As (a) I’d rather not use stuff with animal products in, and (b) I have SUPER light skin, and don’t wear make-up, so an even slightly dark concealer might make me look a bit odd! ;o)


    • 1/9/12 10:41 the Muse:

      yup much lighter lady godiva.


  • 4/30/12 17:01 Molly:

    Is this worth buying off ebay?:)


  • 10/22/12 13:22 Dee:

    Hi Muse! I literally ran to the nearest skin food store after reading this review :p
    I am head over heels with this concealer, the best i have tried so far and i have tried LOTS of them, from drugstore ones to high end ones, from maybelline to bobbi brown to ysl.
    I know lots of women are praising bb concealer, but not me! Bb concealer is a bit too dry for my under eye. Yes, it looks good for the first coupe hours but in the afternoon, blah! This skinfood concealer though not as good as bb in terms of concealing, it doesnt crease and stays natural the whole day. Love it, love it, love it!
    Thank you so much for reviewing!


    • 10/22/12 13:31 the Muse:

      aw I’m so happy to hear it dee! my pleasure and glad the review was helpful! ;-D <3!


  • 11/3/12 0:31 Cat:

    Hey Muse, I know this is horrendously late, but do you think that the lighter shade of this would be too dark for an NW15? Thank you dear!


  • 1/29/13 17:32 Aria:

    Hi, I would love to try this concealer but Iยดd like to know what ingredients it contains. Would you write them or take a picture of the ingredients list for me?
