For as long as I can remember I have been constantly paranoid about my dark under eye circles. I get told time and time again it can be improved with diet, drinking more water and getting more sleep every night. All of the above have been tried and tested and my circles haven’t improved! However when you walk into Superdrug, Boots or any pharmacy and you are confronted with the endless amounts of products from a range of brands, it can be daunting choosing which to use. However the Revitalift Magic Blur Eye Cream by L’Oréal interested me due to its promises on its packaging and its reasonable price, so I thought I would give it a shot and let you guys know what I thought!
With regards to its packaging, the 15ml tube is very handy because it easily fits into any size bag and does not take up a lot of room or make your bag heavy. For me that is super important because there is nothing worse than carrying round a heavy tube of cream in your bag to work or school! Its packaging and the nozzle applicator is also very sturdy and not easily breakable, which again is a good thing so it won’t split in your bag! BIG DOWNSIDE – IT IS ONLY A 15ML TUBE. As convenient as the size is, it is a very small amount and I find myself buying it more frequently which ends up costing me more than I would like to spend.
Next up; the consistency and application of the product. WARNING: it does seem a bit on the thick side, but if dabbed with ring finger or sponge across the under-eye area it turns into a thin even coat. Its cooling feel is guaranteed and it has a pleasant smell to it; well I think it does anyway! It doesn’t really have a distinctive smell, it just smells fresh and not chemical-like which I LOVE. The applicator is also easy to use. I personally do not need to use a sponge to dab it into my skin, I apply straight from the nozzle and use my ring finger if needed to dab in any excess.
The main point I will note that will cause reviews to split over this product is that it does stay oily for a while after application and takes a while to be absorbed. For me personally, as I have dry skin particularly under my eyes, this is a positive when applying my under eye concealer as it helps achieve a smooth coverage and does not crack throughout the day.
The product after one month should supposedly ‘instantly blur the appearance of wrinkles, bags and dark circles.’ I must admit, this is the truth. After 4 weeks I noticed a huge difference; my eyes look more awake, people do not comment about how tired I look, and the darkness of my circles have been massively reduced.
I bought mine from Superdrug as it was on offer, but you can buy this in any big pharmacy or department store, or anywhere that sells L’Oréal products! I bought it for around £8-9, but full price it is around £12.99 which I think is quite reasonable! I will post the link to the Superdrug website at the end of this post as they usually have a lot more offers and discounts on, and they do student discount which is always a bonus!
Out of 5 stars, i would rate it 4 1/2 stars.
This is my first make up review blog (I apologise if it’s too long/boring), but please do leave comments saying if you liked it, what you want to see me review in the future and how I can improve my reviewing!
