LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I'm on my second tube and it's almost empty. Will definitely buy a 3rd, 4th, etc. I experimented a bit with the color and I decided on shade light/medium.

First let me say I don't believe this is intended for dark under eye circles. There is another Maybelline product that is in a similar package that is intended for under eye. I'm reviewing the product that comes in the white tube and is intended for dark spots.

Let's talk about that forbidden topic: age spots..or hyperpigmentation if you prefer to avoid the word AGE. For quite a while I tried a myriad of products to fade my spots back to the pale skin I was born with. I spent too much money and was left spotted. For some reason the spots bothered me much more than the wrinkles around my eyes. I knew the wrinkles would come one day and I still sincerely don't mind them. The spots on my cheek and forehead, however, made me cringe.

So when I first purchased this Maybelline product I was just using it as a concealer to hide the dark spots because I had actually given up on them fading. I used this on a daily basis for a while. Then to my delight I noticed at night when I washed it off that the spots seemed to be actually fading. Sure enough now I can just barely see the spots even when my face is makeup-free.

Now I am using this on the spots on my forearm and back of hands and to my great relief they are fading. Also even using this on my collarbone. Heck, if they sold this by the gallon, I would bathe in it.

This is one of those rare products that ACTUALLY WORKS!

It's hard to decide which shade to pick. In the packaging it may look like a match but keep in mind that the color is lighted than it seems. I bought the light one. Even the cashier said it matched and I also thought it did, but when I used it for the first time it was super pale. It lightened three shades on my face, BUT it's a great concealer. I can't take it back so I'm just gonna but honey (the darkest) and mix them together.

P.s. I pulled off the sponge haha it's easy to take of and I suggest it.

It has a nice light weight texture that is easy to blend and a matte finish. It does help to conceal dark circles and works well under my make-up. It is one I would buy again.

An excellent concealer! It does very well under the eyes and covers acne beautifully when blended with a brush. I'm not a fan of the packaging; it's inconvenient and pointless. I would much rather have a doe-foot applicator, as they have much better control over the amount and distribution of product.

I love this product. The sponge applicator makes it easy to apply and it covers the circles under my eyes just enough. I also have a slight red area between my eyebrows that it covers well. I have few age spots, but it works well on them, of course.

I did have an issue with opening the package. It was a real manicure wrecker.

First off, the consistency of this product is great, it blends well, doesn't crease and lasts for most of the day. I was happy with it except it broke me out...real bad

I blame it on the horrible packaging, you cannot clean the fuzzy ball on the top that the product comes out of, it gets dirty really quickly and i'm sure it's lingering with bacteria. Gross. So, I will not repurchase and am super bummed that this didn't end up working out for me.

I have tried tons of concealers-drugstore & high end, and this has by far been the best. I have dark under eye circles, but find every concealer makes my under eye look flaky and dry. This one does not do that! Plus it looks great.

The reviews for this are kind of spotty but I decided to try it. I picked up the version that didn't have the treatment (treatment is in white packaging and regular is in the purple) in neutralizer. The packaging actually says that neutralizer is for you to use under a regular shade if you have really intense dark circles but it actually matches my skin tone really well (mac nc20). I'm kind of leery about the sponge tip applicator but if there ends up being any problems with hygiene it seems pretty easy to rip out and just use the concealer; either way, they claim that the sponge is anti-microbial. The sponge itself is soft and easy to apply with, and I just use my fingers to blend the concealer in after. I haven't yet had the need to leave it on the whole day so I'm not too sure how long it lasts, but it doesn't feel like there will be problems.

I wasnt a big fan of this product. I have some dark undereye circles and was recommended this product. I used it and i didnt like how hard it was to get the product out onto the sponge. I also found that when applied it was hard to blend because of the thick consistency.

I have used the regular concealer just under the Age rewind in the lightest shade as an under eye brightener and a highlighter for other areas. I went to this to hide some nasty age spots starting to appear along my jawline. I do chemical skin peels and use spf 30 on my face but in between I still get those buggers showing up. I went with the shade medium/deep because even though my skin is lighter I'm trying to coverup not highlight. I'll say this again because I'm sure it's exactly the same as the other product. The applicator is one of the most frustrating, aggravating, stupid mechanisms I've ever dealt with and they seem to be getting worse. In the last year I have had no less than 3 of these break so they will not twist up leaving me no choice but to break open the tube and put the product in a lip gloss pot to use with a brush. IT's a mess and for $8-10 for a drugstore product it should work better. However, when it does work it's perfect to port around and the product even though liquid is thick enough to stick where you put it. Quick tip for those who ick out at the sponge tip. If you use the beauty blender cleaner (in the pot) you can swipe this around it and let it dry on it's side and it cleans up very well. Just don't tip it upright or you will get water down in the product.
Anyway I lightly dab this a few times on the area I want to conceal and then I use my finger to blend around it. My foundation then goes over the top and I don't see the spot nor the product. For me it's doing the job and if it will lighten those spots even better. Not a HG but I will continue to repurchase unless something better and easier comes up.
