turn around, bright eyes: i have been full-on wowed by this brightening undereye treatment from murad.
the texture is unlike any eye cream i have ever tried, with a buttery (almost slight silicone) effect that hydrates and smooths every unwelcome nook and cranny underneath my eyes. it’s rich and heavy, but doesn’t sit on top of my skin or leave things greasy. it definitely blurs dark circles (superficially, but i’ll take it) and leaves me looking far less tired in the mornings. i can go a little lighter with the concealer thanks to the brightening effects and the younger-me glow it bestows is attributed to a vitamin c complex that plumps things right up.
i’ve been fighting some chronic under eye dryness (chock it up to my hellacious travel schedule), but this has cured me. i find that my makeup goes on more smoothly because things are far more hydrated. in truth, i was completely skeptical about all of the claims (and the price tag) on this one, but i’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner. it’s my current go-to and i don’t leave home without it.
