Chronicles of Eye Creams: Benefit's It's Potent Eye Cream

Ah, eye creams.

Back when I was 22, I didn't exactly feel the burning need to apply eye cream every night. When you're 22, can drink vodkas, Malibus and all sorts of alcohol and come to work fresh as a daisy, you would believe that you're invincible.

At 27, it is of course, different. Lines around the lips start to appear {if you're not careful}. Bags show a wee bit of themselves every time you miss your eight hours of shut eye and your skin is dull when you spend too much time under the sun.

I'm glad I started early into this beauty thing early --- I have started using eye cream as early as 21. Six years after, there are signs of *wisdom* ergo eyes now appear a bit smarter, wearier but more knowing. But at least, not as bad as I'd be scared them to be.

Today, ill be sharing with you another addition to the few brands I'm using as eye cream is Benefit's It's Potent Eye Cream:

brightening eye cream to fade dark circles
Your eyes can't keep a secret...they're the first to show signs of age & stress. It's potent! eye cream fades dark circles & helps smooth fine lines for brighter, younger-looking eyes. Contains a peptide complex known to help restore elasticity & firmness, a blend of hydrating botanical extracts including apple extract, known to help boost collagen, & loquat extract, known to help protect the skin from free radical damage.

While I didn't have dark eye bags to begin with, my observation is that the lines aren't so deep when I use this at night. On top of that, some of my other observations are as follows:

  1. Creamy. I love the texture --- and the fact that it dissolves onto the skin. As taught by Benefit's fun gals Paula, Donna and Rione, the best formula to hide eyebags is this cream, Fake Up, High Beam and Watts Up {I think it may have been something else, ugh, signs of aging!}. I tried it once with Fake UP and High Beam and WOW! The experience of application is pretty rich. That's two thumbs up!
  2. No funky smell.
  3. Doesn't hurt the eyes. I once got this on to my eyes and it didn't hurt.
  4. Absorbed easily. You know how some moisturizers and creams aren't absorbed as fast? This one isn't. My typical night routine involves the eyecream being the last to be applied. Normally, I read a book before putting on my sleeping mask. This means that I have to dry my eye cream first before I do and guess what, it dries quickly!
  5. The Php 1,800 price tag would justify itself once I'm done with the jar --- I am not yet sure how long this one will last me. By then, I would know if the effects won't wear out. If you're not iffy to spend that money on eye cream though, I would quickly suggest this one. 
  6. Remember when applying eye cream: Apply on the side of your eyes and on your eyelids, too.

Overall: It's never too early to start using eye cream. I promise.
