The Superfacialist by Úna Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten eye cream made it onto my February favourites in record breaking time and no-one was more surprised than me. I should point out that I was quite the eye cream sceptic, having tried so many and rarely witnessing many of the miracle claims made.
I’ve always had dark undereyes, part due to environment and part due to genes, so I know that even the good eye creams could only do so much & so for a while I stopped using them. However stress, anxiety fuelled sleepless nights and a number of other things quite visibly took its toll on me, leaving the skin around my eyes looking super tired, dark grey and dehydrated. It was clear something had to be done about the outer effects while I worked on the inner causes. I saw this eye cream on SunshineSam’s skincare post and it sounded like it could tackle all the things I needed it to. I liked that this eye cream was recommended by a blogger I trust, so I popped it into my Boots basket the very next day.
I use the eye cream as part of my morning and evening skincare routine. You only need the tiniest dab of cream which is gently patted onto the delicate skin around the eyes. In just over a week I already witnessed quite a difference. The skin around my eyes looked calmer and more hydrated which removed some of the lines which had appeared and by the end of the second week there had been a significant brightening effect and the dark circles had reduced. I didn’t need to rely on covering up with consealer and I didn’t look like an extra out of The Walking Dead without any makeup on, always a plus!
I know everyone at the moment is raving about Clinque’s newly released Pep Start eye cream, but I purchased the Superfacialist eye cream just before that came out and couldn’t justify getting both, so at the moment I can’t compare the two. However I have been so impressed with the results of using the Úna Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten eye cream, which is also almost half the price of the Clinque cream, so I’m more than happy to keep it in my skincare routine and can’t wait to see how my skin continues to improve.
