Don’t you love when there’s truth in advertising? I’m so sick of seeing mascara adds that claim up to 100x longer lashes when the model is obviously wearing falsies and, let’s be real, no lipstick really stays on your lips for 12 hours.
That’s why I’m a fan of Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector. It doesn’t promise that you’ll never wake up with bags under your eyes again, but it does say it will, “visibly lighten dark circles by 30% in 12 weeks.” That’s believable and a noticeable difference that I’ve seen in my own experience using the product.
The oil-free cream has moisturizing and skin-strengthening ingredients along with ingredients to depuff the area, including caffeine and green tea extract. On top of that it has Mica and titanium dioxide to help instantly brighten the area under your eyes. You use it in the morning only, underneath your makeup.
My favorite thing about the product is its over-sized cooling massage tip. It feels so good when you put it on, especially on tired eyes.
My verdict: I did use an eye-brightening pen on top of Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector as I definitely have a lot of blue tones, especially on the inner corner of my eyes. But I really like that it’s a moisturizer, plus. If you’re moisturizing your eyes in the morning, it makes sense to use one that feels amazing going on, depuffs and helps the area look better overall.
