Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector


RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $12

THE SKINNY: I have been using different Neutrogena products since the pre-teen years -- cleansers, lip balms and even some makeup. What I have always liked about the brand is the quality of products paired with great availability. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector is no exception.

The new under-eye concealer does a great job of hiding those ugly dark circles that show up after too late of a night. The formula goes on super-smooth and contains SPF 25. This concealer also doubles as a primer and did a OK job of keeping my eye shadow put after a day on the go.

I did not though like the applicator. The bristles were stiff and seemed a little too rough to use around the eyes. I ended up dabbing the product on with my fingers to avoid the scratchy bristles.

The formula, though, was great for my sensitive skin and did not irritate my contacts. And at $12 it is a real bargain compared to some other much more expensive concealer, primer duos.

I don't even usually look at concealers in this classification/price range because I seldom like them, and did not even know about this product until it arrived in the mail as a part of a campaign through the BzzAgent program.

I am a primer/concealer nut and I like different products at different times of the years because of the coverage, tint and weight. This is one I plan to keep using, especially in warmer weather because it is quite lightweight.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep! Great product for the value. (I just hope Neutrogena changes the applicator.)

CHECK IT OUT: Check out the four available shades and buy direct from Neutrogena. It is also available at most discount and drug stores.
