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?

  1. After neglecting my skin for years I've recently started to look after it, and finding a reasonably priced eye cream is proving near on impossible. This looked hopeful until I read you were disappointed re dark circles :( x

    1. Ah I know, it's so annoying. My favourite eye cream is Benefit It's Potent but that's a little more expensive at £23.50 :( x

  2. Great post dear! The eye cream I use is QV Face Revitalising Eye Cream. Not quite sure if it's available in the UK though.

  4. I've never really used eyecreams and i have been researching on which ones are good. This seem to be quite good for me since i don't tend to have dark circles under my eyes anyway so i just need a product that tightens and reduce puffiness. I've never heard or seen this brand before, neither do i shop at sainsburys much so not sure whether to purchase this or not. I have been considering buying the clinique eye gel because i've heard so much about it but the price kind of puts me off :)
    Thanks for sharing~x

  5. My fave eye cream is just a really basic 'Lacura' one from Aldi, think I only paid around a for it. That's more a night time one, I've got a Boots Vitamin E one with SPF for day. Always forget to use them though so maybe when i'm 33 and not 23 I'll be reaching for them more!

  6. The packaging reminds me so much of Soap & Glory!
    My favourite eye cream is Clinique All About Eyes Rich. Such a life saver to me!

    1. I actually think It's Potent is quite good at depuffing and getting rid of any darkness! I may have to treat myself to some more soon x
