The claim:

A brightening under-eye cream that combines skincare and cosmetics to give an instant illuminating and priming effect while reducing the look of dark circles. Four times more potent than vitamin C, Brighten-i under-eye cream reduces the appearance of dark circles and helps to illuminate and prime the under-eye area for an instant boost or an ideal makeup base.

My Review:

eye cream is typically pricey, well for a good reason. It help to reduce the appearance of eyes fine lines, get rid of dark circle or just to moisturize the eye area. I have read that some doctors and esthetician said that we do not need a specific cream for our under-eye area, just use your regular moisturizer on your eye area and you good to go. Regardless, I still enjoy using eye cream and I still purchase eye cream.

I don’t really have that much of fine line around my eye, although there are crow feet start to show up. At first, I wanted to purchase the inkey list retinol eye cream. Since I can just use the inkey list retinol serum on my under-eye area, I don’t think I need to buy another retinol product for my my under eyes. Anyway, my problem usually is exhausted looking eye, sometimes puffy eye. When I did not get enough sleep, my eyes will look tired. So I choose a brightening eye cream this time. It has an applicator made of metal which is very nice and give a cooling effect to the skin. Before using the eye cream, I like to press gently with the applicator just because it feels cooling. The applicator is nice to use, but I like to use my ring finger instead to apply the eye cream.

The Inkey List Brighten-i Eye Cream claim to be four times more potent than vitamin C, Brighten-i under-eye cream reduces the appearance of dark circles. I was not expecting much with this claim. I mean how bright an under-eye could be? After 3 weeks of use I notice a brightening effect on my under eye. My dark circle is not that prominent as it usually. My eyes looks fresher and awake these days. Well it could be because I have enough sleep. But I do notice a difference with this eye cream and I have been loving the result so far. It is worth to try if you have dark circle and under eye bags problem. It is also very affordable for the quality. It does not give an anti-aging effect though, so do not expect it from this product.
