Since last month, work has been pretty hectic giving little or no time for my other interests. Results: Dark circles and tired looking eyes.
I normally don’t suffer from under eye darkness. So the advent of a new skin problem made me lose sleep. My friends and family noticed it and started suggesting remedies which only made matters worse.
I have used couple of brightening and moisturizing eye creams in the past but they were not so strong enough for my dark circles. I picked this one up without any thoughts when I went mall hopping with Nisha. As it was priced at a modest Rs. 250/- for 15 g tube, I did not have much expectations over it.
Read on to know if it fared well on me or not. J
Packing: It comes packed in a pearl finish white squeeze tube with a metallic silver grey cap. The tube comes encased in a carton box which has a detailed ingredient list printed on it. I threw the carton box away so no pictures (I told you that I had no expectations on this one :P)
Texture and color: The cream is pearl white in color and has a creamy consistency. But when spread, it gets little gel like and gets absorbed into the skin in a jiffy.
Fragrance: It does not have any bothering or noticeable fragrance.
I do not have any history of dark circles. This year had been particularly hectic on both professional and personal front.
After the first use, I noticed that my under eyes were looking refreshed, less puffy and normal. The darkness was still there and I did not expect any change soon. But after around a week of usage, I noticed that the darkness was not as prominent as it used to be. Encouraged by that, I started using this twice a day i.e., before my morning makeup and after I wash my face before going to sleep.
After a month of usage, my under-eye area is now as bright as it used to be. I have a friend whose dark circles are a little bit stronger than mine. I suggested it to her and viola! She says she is able to see some positive change.
I need only a very small amount of product for each use so this tube will easily last me for 2 months. It wears well under makeup and does not make it look greasy. My primer also wears well over it and does not pill.
Let me list down my likes and dislikes for you all before moving on to the rating.
What I like:
- Comfortable and hygienic packing
- Works on dark circles and puffiness.
- Offers decent moisturization to the under eye area.
- Does not feel greasy and gets absorbed into the skin well.
- Only a very small amount is required for each use.
- Wears well under makeup.
- Easily available.
What I don’t like:
- Huge list of ingredients including all types of parabens and stuffs.
- I am not able to find this product in their international website. Is it available only in India? Or does it have anything to do with the "fairness" tag?
Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
I am not sure about its effect on wrinkles and lines. But if you are someone with not so matured skin, you can surely give this a try.
Recommended if you can look past the "fairness" tag and a huge list of chemical ingredients. :D
