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!
