Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream ($65) is a new eye cream the brand just recently launched which promises to decrease puffiness and erase those pesky dark circles you might be experiencing.
Sounds like a dream come true right? But is it?
If you’re younger, a gamer, have allergies, cry a lot (I sure hope not!), or have your head buried in your pillow every night, you’ve probably experienced some sort of puffiness. Puffy eyes are fairly common if you’re starting at a computer screen, tablet, or phone for long periods of time or you’re indulging in one too many rounds of Five Nights at Freddy’s. I’m actually pretty prone to puffiness if I’m doing a game sesh and staying up long hours doing it because I tend to stare at the screen without blinking and I’m likely drinking some caffeinated beverage while doing it because I’m under the illusion I’m still twenty, can stay up all night while still functioning for work without any problem that same day. Nowadays my body seems to be demanding that I get at least eight hours of sleep to function on a human level. When did I get old!?
But even on days I’m not gaming I’ve always been pretty prone to puffy eyes especially in the morning just after getting up. Several years ago, I started noticing it more and more and that’s when I started buying any and all eye creams that promised to depuff my eyes. Believe me, no matter how much money you spend on eye cream it’s highly unlikely the formula they are marketing to you will address puffiness and dark circles. If you’re younger you have a better chance that an eye cream that promises to reduce puffiness will work for you because it’s likely because your puffiness is due to lack of sleep or seasonal allergies perhaps.
But those of us who are older are likely experiencing puffiness due to age and this is not treatable with eye creams in my experience. If you really want to rid yourself of puffiness get a really good concealer and call it a day. Other people might also be experiencing puffiness they inherited from their parents. Yes, it’s true! If your dad and mommy have puffy eyes you’ll likely have them too!
So, I have my doubts Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream will cure puffiness. Do I hope that it will? Yes. But do I think it will? I’m going to lean towards saying no.
Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream is available now at sephora.com. If you try it and find it works do share your results as I’d be highly curious how powerful it is at decreasing puffiness.
