I usually don’t use eye creams (a bit of facial moisturiser undeneath the eyes does the trick) but sometimes they’re handy if the skin underneath your eyes needs a little something extra. Enter the Dr Nick Lowe Dark Circles Correcting Cream, one of the best eye creams I found last year.
Dark Circles Correcting Cream has been formulated by Dr Nick Lowe to target the specific problem of dark circles, following many years of research and treatment on dark circles. This specialist eye cream uses a combination of powerful skin tighteners, next generation peptides and illuminating light reflecting particles to help minimise the appearance of dark circles.
This is a very light, runny eye cream which provides a good level of hydration. Used overnight you wake up to skin around the eyes that looks well moisturised and healthier due to the plumping effects of all the hydration. However what’s really great about this is the use of gentle skin lighteners in the eye cream.
The combination of liquorice extract and niacinamide at low concentrations (so you don’t irritate the eye area) helps to very gently lift darkness around the eyes. Give it time because it’s a mild product but it certainly does work, it also contains light reflectors to make the eye area instantly brighter. I had someone test this for about 3 months and (along with sunscreen during the day) it definitely helped to fade a bit of darkness underneath the eyes. Nothing drastic but the difference was there.
Bear in mind that this won’t completely erase dark circles beneath the eyes and it won’t be able to budge any hereditary darkness in that area. What it can do, however, is gently fade excess darkness you may have built up around the eyes by not using sunscreen (naughty!).
At only £15 (and about £7.50 at Boots at the moment!), the price is right and it certainly does more for dark circles than a lot of eye creams out there. Give it a shot and tell me what you think!
