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,
