I have battled under eye dark circles since I can remember. They are mostly genetic, but I am still on the hunt for something that will actually diffuse them at their source and not just cover them (i.e. makeup wise). So, when this product caught my eye, and the lady at Ulta gave it raving reviews, I had to try it. I was hoping it would be a dupe for Benefit’s It’s Potent ($34) eye cream which is twice the price of this one.
What it claims to do: target dark circles, reduce puffiness, hydrates and softens to reduce the appearance of dark circles and aid in slowing premature aging with a fast acting formula.
First, let me say that I love the packaging. Not only is it minimalist and pretty, but it has a pump. I love when products have a pump because it controls the amount you use, and keeps you from over using the product.
But let’s get down to it.
The texture of the product is nice and light, and doesn’t have any particular smell. I used this as a part of my morning skincare routine for about 8 weeks, and I didn’t see a huge difference in my dark circles. I did notice reduced puffiness and found it to be a good moisturizer, but it wasn’t enough to make me repurchase this. I don’t outright hate it, but there are far better products out there, and it didn’t deliver in the arena I wanted it to. However, the benefit of this product is that it is $15.99.
Stay Glittery, Beauties!
