Soap&Glory You Won’t Believe Your Eyes
This does what Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum wishes it did, and it contains that magic ingredient coveted by puffy-eyed girls like me: the live yeast-cell derivative that is the active ingredient in hemorroid cream.
Every morning, I love applying this to my bleary eyes and feeling it do its work. It brightens and tightens the skin around the eyes, so one minute I’ll look and feel half-asleep, and the next I’ll be bright-eyed and ready to face the day. I don’t find this hydrating enough to use on its own, so I always follow it with a richer eye cream – but its effects are so good that I’m never without a tube.
Note, the serum’s iridescent finish only illuminates the eye are and probably won’t treat dark circles themselves. On applying, the serum needs patting in otherwise it’ll leave a blue snail-trail around your eyes that has been unpopular with many reviewers – but once blended in, its brightening effect works a treat.
