Dark circles; I mean why oh why do we have to have them!? I find them so frustrating and it doesn’t seem to matter how much sleep I have they never fully go away.
Mine aren’t awful but they are always there and something I notice daily so I thought I would test out an eye cream that aims to reduce their appearance. Eye cream is something I shouldn’t be complacent with now I am in my late twenties as around the eye is where serious ageing can happen!
I went for the Vitamin C+ Brighten Dark Circles Eye Cream by the Una Brennan Super Facialist range after reading some of the reviews on a range of products on the Boots website. This comes in at £12.99 but is on offer quite regularly.
Ok so what did I think? Well the packaging is great (you all know how much I love a good piece of packaging!!) as it is a lightweight plastic tube perfect for on the go, the only negative is you can’t see how much you have used and need to give it a good squeeze when you’re near the end to get the last bit of product out.
The texture is great; lightweight, absorbs quickly and was non-greasy. I enjoyed putting this on and I used it every morning and night and the tube lasted me six months which in my eyes (Ha no pun intended there!) is pretty damn good when it comes to value for money.
I would say it did help to reduce my dark circles slightly but not completely; I am not sure if there is a product that could completely get rid of them but this did help so I was happy with that. I would just say don’t start using it and expect to see dramatic results, well that didn’t happen for me, but regardless I carried on using and finished the tube. It was refreshing to put on my eyes and I did feel better for wearing it; plus it is good if you have tired or puffy eyes after a major crying sesh (me after watching Me Before You….!!) and chilling them out a bit!
I wouldn’t have a problem using this product again (or trying others from the range) as it was really nice on my eyes but if it is dramatic changes when it comes to dark circles I am not so sure this would be the one for you. If you have used this product and have had great results I would love to hear or if you have any recommendations for other dark circle eye creams!
