Occasionally comical products pass by my desk and Covergirl + Olay Eye Rehab 2 in 1 Concealer is one of those products. Seriously, this is a product that makes me laugh, shake my head, and ask “Why!?”
At first I was quite excited about this. It was a concealer with a hydrating serum built right in! It comes in a small pump style bottle with a helix design that shows the concealer swirled with a creamy serum. The idea and concept seemed great.
So why was it so funny?
It seems they basically miniaturized Cover Girl Covergirl and Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 Foundation and slapped a new label on it. Seriously, insert rolling eyes here.
This is one of the worst concealer products I’ve come across in a while. Its a slippery mess, provides zero coverage (conceals NOTHING), and annoys me with the “CC Cream” label on the jar stating that it offers color correction. Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!
So here’s the problem.
First of all the packaging is faulty. It distributes way too much product so you have to be super gentle when pressing down to avoid a major mess.
I think the idea behind this is great for aging eyes or anyone with crepiness because the texture is very hydrating and glides easily onto skin. I don’t particularly like the texture. I have drier eyes and I’m always looking for a moisturizing concealer however, this texture is too slippery and feels oily to me. This in fact part of the down fall because it absorbs into skin in a snap and leaves behind zero coverage which also happens to result in a short, short wear time.
There are four shades available I believe. I picked up the Light and the Light/Medium however, both shades are VERY dark so beware fairer skin folks.
Light and Light/Medium
I don’t have much else to say about this product. It’s just bad all around. Zero coverage, a slippery texture, and correcting plus concealing benefits? No, definitely no!
If you disliked Rehab Foundation chances are you’ll feel the same about this concealer. To me it seems the same exact product just with a new label calling it a concealer.
Love to hear your thoughts.
This one is going back to the drugstore as soon as possible. I might just toss it from my desk over to the store!
