Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream

If you've ever seen me without makeup on one thing you might notice is the dark circles under my eyes.  What can I say?  I don't get much sleep mainly because I have an 8 month old who still likes to wake me up a couple of times a night.  I decided that it was time for a change and it was time to get rid of these dark circles!  I came across Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream at Sephora and because I love Benefit products I knew this would work for me...or so I thought.

Benefit claims that It's Potent "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." 

Now, did it fade my dark circles? Nope.  I've been using this for a few months now and it has done nothing for my dark circles. 

Do my eyes look younger?  I guess but I never really had any fine lines or wrinkles around my eyes so I can't really tell.

Did it restore elasticity & firmness?  Again I can't tell as I don't really have puffiness under my eyes.  But I did feel that it was hydrating.  So any dryness I had around my eyes went away. 

All in all I feel like I wasted 30 something dollars on this and am on the hunt for a new eye cream.  If you know of a really good eye cream that gets rid of dark circles feel free to let me know!  If you've reviewed one leave a link and I'll check it out!


  1. I heard this was a good eye cream and was considering it. Thanks for sharing your opinion on it!

  2. What might not work for me might work for you. If you give it a try let me know how it goes.

  3. crappy.
    It came in the luxe box too..

  4. Oh did it really? You might like it though. Just didn't work well for me. I'm thinking of getting the one from Consonant Body.
