Review - Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Dark Circles Eye Cream

Review - Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Dark Circles Eye Cream
Boots - £12.99

Skin care is not my forte, I've been trying to get into a routine for years and start off with good intentions before forgetting and getting lazy. But with summer coming up fast (hopefully!) I've been trying to get into a routine again, picking up some old favourites as well as adding in some new ones.

I've never really been one for eye creams, passing them off as something I don't really need, but now being almost to my 26th & a half birthday, I'm noticing my skin is not so smooth any more - those little wrinkles are starting to appear and as I tend to wear my thoughts and feelings on my face, I need to try and slow them down, coupled with some recently very late nights due to report writing, my dark circles are enough to scare away my class!

Step forward Super Facialist by Una Brenna Vitamin C+ Brighten Dark Circles Eye Cream - the product with the longest name in the world! Designed to brighten and correct dark circles whilst hydrating, Vitamin C+ does what it says on the tin. I'm not blown away by it, it’s not amazing but for the price it’s pretty good.

I apply a small dot morning and night, patting in with my ring finger so as to not cause any more wrinkles, this leaves my eye area hydrated and less lined. Frustratingly it doesn't last all day so often have to use a moisturising concealer on top, but I would do this anyway. As for dark circles, over time they are less noticeable, only when I'm up very late or drink too much tea but this has made some impact.

Make up sits well on top of it, nothing slides which is a plus as I often end up with panda eyes at some point in the day. The tube is a handy size, nice and hygienic so you don’t use too much or get it all messed up, plus it seems to last for ages, another benefit of a nicely priced product.

Overall, it Vitamin C+ is a good product, for £12.99 it would suit most people however it's just not quite what I want or need so the hunt shall continue!

  1. I love the Body Shop Vitamin E eyecream - it is so, so so good and a bit of a bargain I think it's around £10 - definitely recommend!
