I was quite intrigued to find out that Clinique have just launched Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector. My biggest skincare concern is my under eye dark circles and to date I haven't found an eye creams that actually helps address this problem, so I rely on a good concealer to hide them!
Clinique trials have proven to visibly reduce dark circles by 30% in 12 weeks when applying twice daily. The corrector contains Vitamin C and Mulberry root, Caffeine and Green Tea Extract and promises to brighten under eye dark circles to create a more even-toned eye area. It features a cool tip applicator instantly helps reinvigorate fatigued eyes and the massaging action during application breaks up fluid congestion and improves micro-circulation.
This was a pleasure to use, and although the product has an orange tinge, it is lightweight and blends effortlessly into the skin without looking orange as it counter-acts the blue tone of dark circles! The product is oil free and primes skin so is great to use underneath your normal concealer, if like me, you are really self conscious of darkness around the eyes. I was quite impressed with the coverage, considering its so lightweight and for day-time if I was just nipping to the shops I would apply this on it's own. If I was wearing more make-up then I would apply concealer over the top as it makes the perfect base smoothing out fine lines as well as hydrating and brightening due to the light-reflective particles. I will continue to use this for 12 weeks and report back if I notice an improvement in my dark under eye circles.
Clinique Even Better Dark Circle Corrector costs £28 and is available exclusively from Selfridges 4th August 2012 and nationwide at Clinique Counters John Lewis, Boots, Debenhams & House of Fraser from 1st September 2012. Do you suffer with Dark Under Eye Circles? Do you have any tips?
