Olay Regenerist Eye Regenerating Cream + Touch of Concealer is a convenient two-in-one formula that combines eye cream with concealer. It contains several good-for-skin ingredients, but users say it doesn't provide quite enough moisture or coverage, and you're better off with a standard eye cream like Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector (*Est. $40 for 0.33 oz.) and a separate concealer.
Tinted, but in only one shade. Reviewers say Olay's Eye Regenerating Cream is full of ingredients that may help to lighten dark circles over time, if only slightly. The fact that it contains skin-lightening niacinamide, antioxidants, silicone and amino-peptides is the reason Paula Begoun -- skin care expert and author of "Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me" -- gives the formula her highest rating and calls it a "top consideration" at the drugstore.
This eye cream also contains titanium dioxide and cosmetic pigments to help conceal dark circles immediately. However, it's available in only one shade that isn't universally flattering; Begoun calls it best for light to medium skin tones. In addition, users at Amazon.com say it's too sheer to cover very dark circles. Several say the formula is convenient but not very moisturizing, and many agree that you're better off using a separate eye cream and concealer.
Blends easily. Reviewers say Olay Regenerist Eye Regenerating Cream + Touch of Concealer has a lightweight, silky texture. It blends easily, wears well under makeup and is fragrance-free.
Review Credibility: Excellent Begoun gives Olay Regenerist Eye Regenerating Cream + Touch of Concealer her highest rating after comparing its ingredients list to the science available. She says the formula is loaded with healthy-skin ingredients and enough pigment to provide good coverage for dark circles. It comes in only one shade, however, and isn't suitable for all skin tones, she adds.
