The past two and a half years after the birth of my babies I have been a walking zombie. Running after a toddler during the day and nursing an infant at night can be exhausting. My exhaustion began to manifest itself on my face specifically around my eyes. I immediately started my search for an eye cream that would help rectify this issue and I came across Clinique Pep- start eye cream which just launched this summer. In the past, I have tried a couple eye creams and to be honest none of them worked but I wanted to give this a try because at this point I had nothing to lose. After I received it, I started using it right away. About two weeks later I caught a glance of myself in the mirror and I noticed my dark cycles had diminished drastically. I knew it was the eye cream because my diet or sleep patterns were the same, the only thing change I had made was using Clinique pep- start eyes cream.
CLINIQUE PEP-START EYE CREAM (CLAIM)
The eye cream is supposed to brighten, hydrate and in three seconds refresh your eyes giving you that revived and looking wide awake.
Some of the ingredients are
GLYCERIN: Glycerin is a fantastic skin softener and humectant (retains moisture) as well as a very strong water binder
SHEA BUTTER: It retires suppleness, increases moisture and can improve the appearance of irritated dry skin
SQUALENE: It is usually derived from shark liver oil. It is an excellent moisturizer and lubricant, it softens the skin while replenishing the skin lipids.
METHYL GLUCETH 20: A humectant skin conditioning agent
YEAST EXTRACT: It minimizes the dryness, sunburned and wind chapped skin. It restores elasticity and health to the skin.
HOW TO USE IT
Use in the AM and PM. Remove the transparent cap; pull out the circular top till you hear it pops open. Then you squeeze a small amount on under the lower lid of your eyes. Using the ball tip, massage it in gently. Then tap excess in with index finger till it is fully absorbed.
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
July 15th to date (3 months)
All skin types
I really like the package. It’s sleek and modern looking; easy to travel around but what I love the most is the air tight squeezable package. It keeps all the antioxidants and ingredients fresh till the last drop and keeps bacteria out of the product.
My eyes looked rested, I definitely saw a difference between the before and after using the product
It left the skin under my eyes moisturized
It absorbs quickly into your skin without leaving residue
Works good under makeup
It didn’t get rid of my dark circles completely but I must say it brightened my eyes a tiny bit.
Overall I had a good experience with this product; better than I have any other eye cream I have used in the past. I would recommend along with a good diet, hydration and a good amount of sleep/rest in order to see great results. If you have tried this I would like to hear what you think. Leave a comment sharing your experience. Have a great weekend.
