Review of the Han Skincare Cosmetics Concealer | Clean and Green Beauty Guide

 
Han Skin Care Cosmetics Concealer in Fair Light

Han Skin Care Cosmetics Concealer- $18.00:

Here’s the quick SCORECARD breakdown. Each question is rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 5being the best:

1. How do the ingredients look? What’s inside?- There's one ingredient that has evidence linking it to be a potential human skin allergen, but depends on the percentage used in the product. Also, there's coconut oil which may bother some. But other than that, looking good!

2. How's coverage?- 4: It's a thicker formula and a very small amount goes a LONG way! Covers up dark circles for sure. I'd say patting and . pressing it in worked the best in terms of application. It feels like it won't spread evenly at first, but it gets there. This isn't your silky, swipe-on formula. But it does provide a strong, medium to full coverage.

3. Does skin still look like skin?- 3: Under the eye, it brightened and gave a fuller-coverage look. Setting was key. Elsewhere else, specifically my chin, it caught a bit on dry skin.

4. Is it non-irritating?- 4: No problem here for me, however, there is tocopheryl acetate which, according to EWG.org and Cosmetic Ingredient Review Assessments, shows strong evidence of being a human allergen.

5. Does it blend and build well?- 3: It built well under the eye on top of lightly moisturized skin. It's heavier so it may crease if you have oily skin and could sit in fine lines. You could try setting it, but it could get tricky. When covering up scaring, it sat on top and didn't soak in well to give that flawless look.

6. Is the shade range inclusive? 2- Five shades is a good start, but I’d love to see a more inclusive offering here.

7. Is this a consciously-created product? 3- Cruelty-free, made with a percentage of organic ingredients and no silicones, check check and check. In terms of sustainability re: packaging, etc. it’s not quite there yet. See what the brand said below…Heads up: they will take returns for recycling needs! A step in the right direction.

FINAL SCORE:

19/30

IN A NUTSHELL:

  • It’s definitely a heavier concealer that provides solid medium to full coverage

  • Texture is a bit tacky at first, but it will blend out on a moisturized under eye area

  • It may settle into fine lines unless lightly set

  • OH and there’s coconut oil! Some skin types can’t take it

  • Other concealers I’d recommend for fuller coverage:

POTENTIALLY ‘IFFY’ INGREDIENTS + EWG RATING:

These were the not-so-great ingredients that didn’t pass the Rule of 3. Click below to find out all the details. Keep in mind, the percentage of these ingredients in the products MATTERS! I rarely take ‘scary’ scores on EWG at face value these days, and always ask the brand about to clarify if I’m concerned. Works like a charm! See their response.

FROM HAN:

“Our plastic components (compacts, plastic tubes, illuminator jars) are made of polypropylene which is a recyclable plastic that can be less straightforward to recycle. We understand that for some customers it can be less convenient to send products our way or go out of their way to drop off at a Credo. We would recommend that customers first find out whether their city can pick up polypropylene during curbside pickup - Otherwise, we would recommend finding either special recycling areas the municipality offers to recycle plastics or other programs (Whole Foods select locations may be able to as well). We are also happy to take any HAN plastic components in for recycling in smaller quantities. We only request the 7 be sent at once to qualify for the lip gloss/eyeshadow reward. All of our components are 100% recyclable - paper and plastic and all. Similar to the above response, the plastics require a bit more research to make sure they're properly recycled. Some of our paper is made from recyclable material, majority is net-new.”

Review of The Organic Skin Co. Hide and Seek Concealer

 
The Organic Skin Co. Hide and Seek Concealer in Rose Sand

The Organic Skin Co. Hide and Seek Concealer- $53.00:

Here’s the quick SCORECARD breakdown. Each question is rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 5being the best:

1. How do the ingredients look? What’s inside?- These ingredients look so good! Fewer ingredients, higher quality. Love.

2. How is coverage? Does it conceal flaws?- 4: It does. I'd say it brightens pretty well too. A little goes a very long way. I did set it after seeing a bit of creasing. The coverage is not heavy at all, but still does the trick. Also, the texture is less silky than others, something I think would work well for oilier skin types.

3. Does coverage look natural?- 4: It's definitely a more natural looking concealer that really lightens things up with a lighter, but not too light, amount of concealing happening.

4. Is it non-irritating?- 5: No problems here!

5. Does it build and blend well?- 4: Yes, absolutely. I set this concealer with a transparent powder under my eyes and saw no issues. It also blends well elsewhere on the face!

6. Is the shade range inclusive?- 3: Eight shades is a good start.

7. How conscious is the brand? 5- I rarely give a ‘5’ for this. Check out their site! Major ‘wow’ factor on the combo of being cruelty-free, vegan, recyclable, offering refills, and the brand keeps the environment top of mind by planting trees for every product sold! Job well done.

FINAL SCORE:

25/30

WHAT STANDS OUT:

  • This concealer brightened very well without being heavy on the skin

  • A small amount, pressed lightly, goes a long way and extends beyond under the eye, to the rest of the face

  • This company covers sustainability SO well. I love the brand’s mission and what they’re doing right now

  • The price is STEEP, but I have a hack for that. I show you more in the video (link above). I’d recommend buying a pod and a magnetic palette. Get all the details in the video!

  • I would absolutely recommend this product. It's pricey (try the hack above), but it's great and the quality of ingredients is outstanding

IFFY INGREDIENTS + EWG RATING:
