I seem to always have dark circles under my eyes. I’m sure part of it is genetic (as an aunt so rudely pointed out once as she traumatized my 16-year-old self), but it’s probably also caused by lack of sleep and not drinking enough water. Anyway, I’m obsessed with religiously applying eye cream, and I’m always trying new ones. Recently, I purchased the Caudalie Energizing and Smoothing Eye Cream. This product is sold at Sephora and similar retailers for $39.
While I love Caudalie, I’m not loving this product. It’s main ingredient is Vitamin C, which is great for brightening. However, after about a month of using this product, I’ve seen very little difference in my under eye region. My dark circles look about the same, but this also does not seem to smooth the area at all. It’s not even a teeny bit nourishing or moisturizing, so it just doesn’t fill in and saturate the area. Essentially, there seems to be very little difference when I use this vs. when I don’t use this when it comes to makeup application.
Overall, I found this to be a pretty disappointing eye cream. I’ve used much better eye creams that were much cheaper from the drugstore. So, I guess it’s back to my quest to find the holy grail of eye creams.
Do you have a favorite eye cream for moisturizing and combatting dark circles? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!
