Mourning the lost of Benefit Eyecon? I wish I could comfort you but I never actually tried it so I’m not really sure what I’m missing.
No worries, I hear Benefit B.Right It’s Potent! Eye Cream is the perfect replacement!
Contains a peptide complex known to help restore elasticity & firmness plus a blend of hydrating botanical extracts including apple extract, known to help boost collagen, & loquat extract, known to help protect the skin from free radical damage.
Fade dark circles? I can hope. Lord knows I’ve tried many lotions and potions and none have faded the darkness under my eyes. How about you?
I haven’t used It’s Potent! Eye Cream long enough to say whether or not it’ll fade my dark circles but I’m a hoping and a wishing. I will tell you a bit my adventure with it so are.
This little guys comes in a cute glass jar with a faux cork screw top. Cute packaging, check! Some of Benefit’s other new B.Right Skincare offerings also come in glass bottles but I feel a little more secure with a tiny eye cream that comes in such a packaging. Dunno why, maybe it’s the size but I feel alot less clumsy around it and not fearful I’ll break this one plus it sits every so handsomely on my vanity awaiting my use.
The formula is a thicker, richer cream. Such a texture had me worried that it wouldn’t absorb easily but no worries it feels rich and looks thick but it blends easily into my skin with a pat or two of my ring finger. Actually, it seems quite a heavyweight but the formula feels very lightweight under my eyes and turns very buttery and melt-y under my eyes so it absorbs quite easily and leaves behind a nice hydrating feel. Unlike the other B.Right products it doesn’t have a fragrance which is a plus.
I used it in the AM and I used it in the PM for almost..three weeks now? And I have to say my eyes definitely need more moisture. I’m a getting old. As a morning eye cream it’s a good deal as it absorbs easily and creates a smooth, moisturized finish for my concealer but as a night treatment, I def need a bit more moisture. And dare I say even in the day, as it progresses, my eyes start to look a tad on the dry side so it’s not sealing in moisture too well for me but age is a factor here.
- Younger eyes (early twenties and well into your late twenties).
- Those looking for lightweight daily eye cream for day use.
- Those looking for just the right amount hydration in a lighter formula that doesn’t make eyes look hooded (some eye creams prove TOO rich but this is a nice formula that runs very light and gentle).
- Aging eyes (you might need a bit more boost than what It’s Potent! can provide).
- PM Eye Cream users (stick to using it daily but not nightly as you may require more moisture in the evening).
- Really dry eyes (like mine! You’ll need something more powerful).
Overall, It’s Potent! is a nice eye cream for those in their twenties who aren’t really yet experiencing the effects of old age. It’ll maintain your eye area, keep it fresh, hydrated, and probably delay the effects of aging with constant use. However, those who already have aging eyes, or dryness, or fine lines, etc…well, It’s Potent! might be too much of a lightweight or at least I think so as my eyes have all these issues including puffiness.
In the long run I can’t say what it did for my aging eyes as I haven’t used it long enough nor can I say it’s busy fading my dark circles but it makes a decent eye cream for AM use however I need to pull out the big guns for night use.
Anyone try it?
