I received these (actually several of these hence their inclusion in my Benefit giveaway) in my goody bag at the Stylehaul IMATS party and it may have been the most exciting freebie I’ve had in a while.. I was dying to try this stuff! I’m not the best at remembering an eye cream (or much in the way of skin care) in the mornings so I thought anything with an added step built in had to be good, right? Obviously it’s no replacement but it definitely hydrates my under eyes and having now had my fine lines thrust upon me (I had no idea) every little helps. It did kind of exaggerate them a little actually but given that I’ve never really noticed them until now I can’t tell you whether that’s better or worse than my regular concealer. Also it doesn’t offer a great deal of coverage so this is for those who need very little or are happy to layer something more substantial on top. I will keep it for my no makeup makeup days. A big redeeming feature for me is the packaging.. I’ve become so used to cheap plastic that this feels a bit lux and looks gorgeous on my vanity. Other than though it’s just mot that special.. it’s a nice to have for my relaxed days but it’s not an every day product for someone like me who should get more sleep and for the price I want to be using it every day! It’s a nice gimmick though.. I foresee this dual formula idea filtering into the high street brands before the year is up!
Oh jeez remind me never to take close up photos of my eyes again.. I’m only 27, yeesh!!
