Bye Bye Under Eye


When the early mornings call it's always hard to look in the mirror and see those lovely dark under eyes. After starting uni again after Christmas, I have to say I haven't missed them one bit.

Before concealing those bad boys I will always reach for something that is going to de-puff, cool and hydrate. Lately that has been The Body Shop Vitamin C Eye Reviver Duo (13.00), this is the perfect way to help reduce your bags in the morning when time is short. As the name suggests there's two parts to this. The first is a cooling gel which is dispersed through a rollerball, which I love. And the second is a simple eye cream which is lightweight and a great base for concealer.

When it comes to covering, correctors with a salmony undertone are great for cancelling out the blues and purples that tend to lurk around in the mornings. As for concealers, I never like them to be drying, which normally means straying away from those that are heavy duty. However if you want something thats the best of both worlds the Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit (£24.00) is great. I got this in a couple shades lighter than my skin tone to really brighten the area. This is a heavy concealer, but I don't find it to be drying or cakey with an eye cream or serum underneath. It also comes with a handy powder which you can use to set your concealer in place, and I have to say these two really do work a treat at covering up my dark circles.

  1. I have been using the Garnier rollerball for the past few months and it is running out.
    Haven't seen this body shop rollerball but it sounds pretty cool and I am interested to give it a try as I find that this garnier one doesn't work as well as I wanted.

    Thank you for posting, Hope you have a lovely day ♥

  3. Me and my eyebags have had a lifetime battle (and they're winning, hands down). I am always searching for that Holy Grail combination that will finally cause them to magically dissolve in to radiance. This stuff is certainly on my list! Lexmorrisa x

  4. I need to pick up the Bobbi Brown corrector or concealer, I've been putting it off for way too long but it really does seem like the only thing that works on stubborn dark circles.

  6. I haven't tried the Vitamin C Body Shop cream before it sounds lovely I love the idea of having a duo as sometimes I want a cream but on puffy days I love a good roller ball. The BB corrector has been on my wish list for the longest time now sounds so good xx
