Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream

Hello Lovelies,
I've been using 'Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream' for around 2 months now so thought I have used it enough to give you my review on this product.
First off, the packaging is super cute with a plastic cork type effect of lid and glass jar.
The cream itself is fairly thick and creamy and glides on really nicely under the eyes, you can definitely feel how hydrating and refreshing it is. I use this every morning and evening, I love it in the morning as it makes me feel more awake when I put it on.
This cream claims to 'fade dark circles and helps smooth fine lines for brighter, younger looking eyes'. It has definitely made my eye area a bit more glowing and it feels hydrated, although I haven't seen any improvement at all on my dark circles (I have also been making sure I drink plenty water and get enough sleep. sometimes.).
Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream will set you back £25.50, so not cheap. Is it worth it? In my eyes probably not as sadly it's not done what it's claimed to do. It may well have worked for others though.

Let me know of any recommendations for eye creams to reduce dark circles in the comments below.

  1. Thanks for the honest review - I was tempted to buy this one, but I have tried quite a few pricey eye creams and none have ever reduced dark circles. Right now I'm following the 'drink more water' tip as I figure I should be trying to prevent them from the inside rather than just covering up on the outside (no difference yet though, but it's early days!) x

    1. No problem. I do drink around 2 litres of water a day so thought that would be enough to keep dark circles at bay. I may need more water intake perhaps x

  2. I've been eyeing this up for a little while now but I've been skeptical about it. So glad I didn't! I've heard their moisturiser is good though so may have to try that :) xo

    1. Yes, I have also heard great reviews about their moisturiser. I may try that out at somepoint x
