PONDS PIMPLE CARE AND COVER CONCEALER PEN // REVIEW9:32 AM
Finally fulfilling my promise to review this drugstore concealer that I got from my last drugstore haul (read here).
It's the POND'S PIMPLE CARE AND COVER CONCEALER PEN.
To be honest, I finish my first purchase and decided to re-purchase, and now I'm on my second one. Is it because this product is my new holy grail drugstore concealer?
Let's find out ;)
I am really excited when I finally found another drugstore concealer. I know I'm pretty late, but I am happy nonetheless. I first bought this concealer at Food Hall and I assume every supermarket will carry this product, but unfortunately, when I wanted to repurchase, it was not available at Hypermart. Then I tried my luck at Indomaret, it was not available too. Lucky me when I was strolling at another Hypermart, I caught my eyes on this product and snatched it right away.
I should say that the availability of this product is so-so, so I suggest you go to supermarket if you want to make a purchase.
The price point is very affordable, I forgot exactly how much, but I'd say roughly less than IDR 30.000.
The packaging is a white plastic pen type that you need to twist to get the product out (like lipstick packaging). I love the fact that the packaging is slim and small enough to fit in my everyday emergency touch up bag without being too bulky. The cap is also sturdy enough to stay in place and keep the product covered. Until now, there is no mess in my makeup bag :)
Now, let's finally talk about the main thing, the product it self.
This product is made especially to cover your imperfections, but I do use it on my dark circles as well.
Color wise, it blends well with my skin. So if you have fair to medium skin, I think you can make this work.
Coverage is medium, pimple marks can be covered, but not so well.
Staying power is not great. If you have oily skin like me, it will be separated after a few hours.
Oil control is zero I would say, so definitely set your skin with powder afterwards.
They say it is pimple care and cover, but I am not really sure that this product will solve acne problems. The good thing though is it does not break me out.
Now maybe you ask why did I repurchase this product? I'd say it is good to keep in your every day makeup bag to do touch up through out the day, or if you suddenly have an important meeting or an unexpected night out.
It is very affordable and efficiently packaged to be my emergency touch up tool.
Hope you find this post helpful in a way!
Do tell me what you think about this concealer :)
