Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream | Review

I was looking for a new eye cream so Santa did a great job when he put this in my stocking especially because It’s Potent was the one i’ve been looking at for a while now…just how does he do it?!

I’ve been after an eye cream to help fade my dark circles caused by late night blogging and an over-active brain that kick starts as soon as my head hits the pillow, thanks for that brain. It’s Potent is made specifically to fade your dark circles and brighten your eyes by firming, smoothing and hydrating the skin and you know what, i really do think it works! I’m always skeptical of eye creams because i just don’t know how much they can do to combat those pesky eye shadows, but after using this cream for a week i can already see a difference – and if anything i’ve been getting less sleep thanks to a nasty little cold.

I love the packaging with it’s faux cork lid and apothecary style glass and as it contains a decent 0.5oz of eye cream i think it will last quite a while. I hardly use any at all and i find it glides so smoothly onto the eyes before bed and creates a nice soft base of my concealer to sit on during the day. Both me and mum have extremely sensitive eyes and have both said that this cream works wonders – no stinging and no soreness which we’ve had with other creams before, so that alone makes me very happy because having stingy eyes before you go to bed just makes them look even worse in the morning. After a week of use i’m already seeing a difference with my dark circles and redness however i still feel like i need a little bit more hydration around my eyes which is the only slight downside for me. All in all though i think i’m going to re-buy when i run out purely for it’s magic eye bag reducing properties!

You can buy It’s Potent from Benefit for £23.50 on their website HERE!

Have you tried It’s Potent before? Has it worked wonders for you too?
