I am always on the look out for a miracle eye cream that will restore youth and life to my exhausted mummy eyes. Most eye creams I have encountered have usually oversell and under deliver but I just can't help myself I just have to grab it. Early this year, walking through my usual Sephora “window shopping" , my eyes caught the attention of Ole Henriksen banana bright eye crème. On further investigation, I found out it was inspired by the famous Ben Nye banana powder a translucent setting powder . Ben Nye banana powder is adored by makeup artist because they claim it controls oil and shine, eliminates under eye creases , creates a soft focus and eliminates e appearance of dark under eye dark circles. I automatically thought genius! I never heard of an eyes that claims to contour your eyes while correcting the conditions ; it was getting two for the price of one and I am always here for that. To be honest, the company never promised to contour your eyes with this eye cream; that was an exaggeration on my part, they however delivered on quite a few of their claims and I was sincerely happy with the results.

PRO It instantly reduced signs of fatigue Leaves my eye moisturized for most parts of the day. I have seen improvement of fine lines and wrinkles the past six weeks. Leaves my eye area smooth and soft I LOVE, LOVE the texture of this eye cream. Its thick enough to keep your under eye moisturized but light enough to absorb quickly without leaving any residue or clumps.
CON It did not reduce the appearance of dark circles but I did not expect it to. The presence of dark circles could be caused by a variety of reasons like genetic or lifestyle choices so expecting an eye cream to completely eradicate this condition may be a little demanding . All in all , it was a good eye cream and look forward to using it till the last goop. Thank you so much for reading. Have a blessed day.
