My skin is prone to blemishes and spots so I am always trying out different concealers that would help reduce the size of spots and help my skin heal quicker. When I came across Ere Perez Arnica Concealer I knew I had to try it, especially since it doesn’t contain any coconut-derived ingredients which often cause problems on my skin. In this review, you will find out how I got on with it and whether I would recommend it.

Ere Perez Concealer comes in 6 shades and I decided to try two: Latee ( for porcelain and very fair skin) and Brew (darker shade). My skin is fair but not very fair and many times I find it difficult to find the right shade for my skin. It seems that the best is actually to mix different shades together to get the perfect colour for my skin tone.
So now that I own two shades I tend to use them either together fully blended (as a full coverage foundation) or just the lighter shade to lighten any dark areas or do some subtle contouring.
I really love the texture of this concealer – it’s creamy, silky and thick but glides on the skin easily. It’s not oily and gives a matte finish.
This product has been made to totally conceal any redness, dark circles and blemishes but does it really work? From my experience, I would say, yes, it’s very good at concealing all the imperfections. When I apply one layer, it gives medium coverage and this is enough for minor blemishes. For some very visible imperfections, you will probably have to apply multiple layers to cover them completely.
This concealer does not only offer good coverage, but it’s also long-lasting so you can expect it to last all day as it doesn’t rub off that easily (only if you keep touching your face). However, you need to pay attention to those areas where you applied multiple layers as some of the product may start to separate from the skin as the day goes by. In that case, you just need to melt it back into the skin by gently pressing on the area with a clean finger.
Keep in mind that once the concealer is applied and set, it will give a very matte finish and this will not look good on dry skin so if you have dry skin, this concealer is certainly not for you. Before using it, always make sure your skin is exfoliated and well moisturised.
The star ingredient of this concealer is of course arnica which has healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Other ingredients include various waxes, cocoa seed butter and sunflower seed oil.
All the ingredients are non-GMO, vegan and cruelty-free.

Ere Perez Arnica Concealer – The final verdict
All in all, this is an amazing product, it covers my blemishes really well while at the same time helps them heal faster. It certainly works and I would highly recommend it if you have acne-prone skin. If your skin is dry you will struggle to make this work for you as the finish is so matte.
