Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream / Review

Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream

About two years ago I decided to start wearing eye cream on a regular basis. Some may say it’s too early, other that it’s too late but for me it was the perfect time and I’m glad to announce that applying eye cream is now an inseparable part of my skincare regime. Wearing eye cream protects the sensitive eye area from the appearance of wrinkles and also hydrates it so that the skin looks more youthful and fresh. Being 23, for me eye cream is an eye cream and sadly I can’t comment on their anti-age properties. However, I can say weather it moisturizes well, which for my age is the most important part and what I look for in a cream.

I’ve tried a bunch of eye creams during the past two years and the one that really stands out is this Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream ($34 / £24.50). It was just recently when I started using this product but it has quickly proved itself as a brilliant one! The cream has a thick consistency and it’s quite rich but at the same time it feels light on the skin, which is the best of both worlds really. It’s Potent hydrates and moisturizes my under eye area SO well and my skin feels incredibly soft and smooth. Also, it contains a peptide complex known to restore the elasticity and firmness of the skin and I am glad to say that I actually have noticed an improvement in that department. The eye cream has build-in hydrating botanical extracts and loquat extract, which help protect the skin from radical damage.

I feel like the reason It’s Potent has become one of Benefit’s best selling products is the claim that it fades dark circles and helps smooth fine lines. Now, I am not a massive dark circle sufferer, so I can’t comment on that much but I do think that the eye cream brightens up my eye area a bit. Honestly, it’s not a huge difference but it’s still noticeable, which is always a bonus in my books. I also wanted to mention that this product absorbs really quickly and looks perfect under makeup; the area looks hydrated and the concealer doesn’t cake or flake.

In a nutshell, I’d say that if you’re looking for a good, moisturizing eye cream, which will also help your under eye circles look a bit brighter, then It’s Potent is the one to go for. It not only hydrates deeply but it also makes my eye area look more youthful and fresh. The packaging is absolutely adorable and I love that you get a massive amount of product in the pot (14.2 g / 0.5 oz.). Oh, and it also smells heavenly! Definitely a winner and I cannot recommend it enough! <3

Have you tried It’s Potent before? What do you think of it? Have you noticed that it fades dark circles? Which is your favorite eye cream? :)

Lots of love,

  1. "In a nutshell, I’d say that if you’re looking for a good, moisturizing eye cream, which will also help your under eye circles look a bit brighter, then It’s Potent is the one to go for.", well, this pretty much sums up, what I need.
    I'm 22 and have decided to start using an eye cream. I have pretty bad dark circles and was leaning towards the Bobby Brown one, but now I got confused :D

    1. Haha sorry for the confusion hun! :D Actually I haven't tried the Bobby Brown one yet but I've heard fab things about it too. I don't know if it helps with dark circles though? Ah let me know which one you end up getting. It's great that you've decided to start using eye cream, I'm sure you'll notice a big difference :)

  5. Great review!!! I've seen this cream before and fell in love with it, mostly because I'm a sucker for cute packaging xD I've also started incorporating (or trying to) eye-cream into my skin-care regiment, but I must confess I still forget it from time to time xD

    I'm glad you liked "It's potent" and this review made me want to buy it and try it out (after I finish my clinique one!)

  6. This looks like a great product! I haven't used an eye cream for so long because I had a bad reaction to one but maybe it's time to get back on the wagon...xx

  7. There was a period I was on the look out for a good eye cream, but was just so confused as to what to look for so gave up. I'd kind of forgotten about that search until reading this post, and this Benefit eye cream is looking like a good purchase for me. :)

  13. I think I have this eye cream hiding somewhere in my stash. I say it's never too early to use an eye cream. I've been using them since I was a teenager, granted they weren't super thick or anti-aging, because for me also, an eye cream is an eye cream.

  15. I love It's Potent! I used to have a Nivea eye cream which was nice enough and still hydrating, but as soon as I tried It's Potent I realised how better it was. It's definitely my favourite :) xx

  17. This sounds like exactly what I've been looking for... especially if it looks good under makeup, which is the main problem I've been having.

  18. I've recently just started using this, two weeks ago. I've noticed a little improvement in dark circle but not major, but it does moisturise so well. So far it's good but not amazing, I'll have to use it longer though to properly judge it! x

  23. LOVE Benefit skincare, I was wary at first but this is the only thing I haven't tried yet and I've fallen hard for everything else in the collection. I use the Origins GinZing Eye Cream but its effectiveness has wavered recently so I might get this and rotate between the two x

  26. I really want to try this one out! After I received a sample of the Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream, I fell in love with it an it made me want to try the eye cream even more. I will definitely have to go and try this soon =P

  27. I have tried this eye cream! I still have my small sample size but to be honest, I don't really know what to think! I'm absolutely brand new to eye creams and it's still difficult for me to tell whether it's done much or not. It does seem to hydrate though!

  30. I've been looking for a decent eye cream for ages because although I tried quite a few, I never found one that had that wow-effect I'm always looking for.
    To be honest, I never dreamed of checking out the skin care range of a cosmetic brand, perhaps that was a mistake. I'll certainly have a look!
