Hi there! Today’s post is about the eye cream I’ve been using since late June – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Eye Cream. This cream promises to reduce puffiness and dark circles and to awaken skin’s natural glow with the help of two natural brightening agents – kiwi fruit extract and mulberry fruit extract – and moisturising sugar beet extract.
The product claims to make the skin around the eyes look and feel more refreshed, more energised, smoother and softer. And it claims to minimise the appearance of dark circles and puffiness within four weeks. Now, did the cream deliver on its promises?
I’ve now used this eye cream two to three times daily for six weeks. So I’m satisfied I’ve given it a fair chance. And my verdict is… this eye cream is OK. Whilst it really makes the skin around my eyes feel soft, smooth and supple, it hasn’t done anything (I mean it – nothing, nada, rien, zero) to minimise the dark circles. 😦
But let’s focus on what this eye cream can do! For once, it feels very nice on the skin. It’s soft and gentle and I think it’s perfectly suitable for people with dry or sensitive skin. Another thing I like is that this eye cream doesn’t contain these pesky little shimmer particles that many other eye creams burst with. So if you don’t like shimmery eye creams, you’re safe with this one. 🙂 Oh, and before I forget it – this eye cream sits well under make-up. I haven’t noticed any problems with my make-up or concealer balling up or sliding off.
Would I recommend this eye cream? If you want a nice, gentle, soft and refreshing eye cream, then yes. But if you want an eye cream that fights dark circles, I’d say keep looking! Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Eye Cream is available as 15ml for £5.99. I got mine for £2.95 (half price offer). So keep your eyes peeled for promotions. 🙂
