Puff Off Eye Gel - £22.50 on BenefitCosmetics.co.uk

Hi lovelies! I'm so excited about what I'm reviewing for you all today as I actually have a little confession to go with it. While I'd had eye creams in the past, I've never ever finished a bottle and have never consistantly used one. As a beauty therapist, I know better than this an despite being only 20 years old and not yet having to worry about wrinkles and premature aging, I know that eye cream is important for everyone to prevent these things as well as keeping under eye bags, dark circles and puffiness at bay. To be honest, as I've never particularly struggled with any of these things, I've been lazy with eye cream. However, even before Benefit officially released this eye cream and before they were kind enough to send their Puff Off Eye Gel to me (which came as a complete surprise!), I'd already decided I'd buy it when it came out, as the bottle is adorable and I absolutely couldn't resist that little iron shaped applicator.

Anyway, onto the actual product. This eye cream itself is incredibly light, making it great for someone like me who doesn't need a heavy eye cream, however due to it's hard working formula, this would be fab on someone who perhaps does need the benefits of a more intense eye cream, but wants to avoid the heavy, thick feeling. For me, while I generally don't suffer with under eye issues, I have been having a few late nights and busy days lately, resulting in slightly tired looking eyes, so mild puffiness and slight dark circles. So for me, this couldn't have come at a better time. I've been absolutely religious about applying this for the last two weeks or so and even for someone like me who never really used an eye cream, I am hooked! 

I can honestly say that I feel like I look more awake since beginning to use this, my undereye area is significantly brightened and any hint of puffiness has 100% gone. I feel a lot of this has to do with the incredibly cooling iron shaped tip, which make application super gentle and easy and it feels amazing too, particularly in the morning when you're feeling a bit blah! Another thing I've found is that the makeup under my eyes tends to stick around a lot better when I use this underneath as opposed to when I don't. Sometimes due to the cold weather my eyes can get a bit watery and this causes lots of eye rubbing and makeup fading, but this has dramatically reduced any noticeable fading during the day. Something you can do with this that you can't do with many eye creams, is apply this over makeup, so you can get more of a brightening effect.

Honestly, I think this would work for absolutely anyone, but I do think it's probably slightly better suited to younger skin, or perhaps those of you who are fairly new to eye cream. Obviously I can't speak for those with more severe puffiness and dark circles, but I do know that it definitely works to de-puff and brighten for me, so I think it's definitely worth a shot! It's not the cheapest eye cream at £22.50, but you only need to use a tiny amount, so use sparingly and you should get a lot of use out of this!

What do you think? Have you tried this, or would you like to? What's your favourite eye cream?
