dirty works banish the bags eye cream
A month or so ago after being impressed with their Coconut Caress Body Butter (review here) I picked up the Dirty Works Banish the Bags Eye Cream. This little tube promises to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles as it contains a proven tightening peptide and stimulating caffeine which apparently improves circulation. It also contains light reflectors to make you look more awake. So, did these promises materialise? Well yes and no. This is a very moisturising and soothing eye cream and I do believe it is helping to reduce any puffiness under my eyes by plumping and improving the condition of the delicate skin there. However I haven't seen much of an improvement in my dark circles and I certainly can't see the effects of any apparent light reflecting particles, even after immediate application.
Overall I don't think this is an awful eye cream as it is very soothing and moisturising but although it does "banish the bags" to some extent, it doesn't live up to its claims regarding ridding you of any dark circles. I do definitely want to try some more bits from Dirty Works though as their body butter is so fab!
The Dirty Works Banish the Bags Eye Cream is available from Sainsburys for £4.99.
What's your favourite eye cream?
