Save Vs Splurge: Eye Creams That Undo All Traces Of Late Nights!

By  | 

I have a lot of makeup in my vanity. It’s alarming. But amongst the many tubes of lash glue, bullets of lipstick, and palettes of eyeshadow nestled in my cabinet, the most hard-working have to be concealers. I milk these little tubes for all their worth. I make them work down to every rupee.

It’s not like I don’t take of the area around my eyes. I put tea bags on them, lavish them with attention and love with my ring finger, don’t tug on them and everything. But my dark circles and eye bags are pretty stubborn and won’t move. This makes a great case for the use of great eye creams.

So, after many hours of research, I zeroed down on these two eye creams that promise to eliminate dark circles, brighten the area, and refresh it. Plus, we got a save and a splurge option. Your wary eyes will thank you. They need the TLC.

Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream (Rs 1950)

Clinique is arguably one of the best skincare brands in the country and it’s earned its reputation with product after product delivering on its promise. The new Pep-Start range excites us for that reason, and the colourful packaging! But we digress.

This eye cream has already found a following. People are using all caps in the reviews to tell you how amazingly well this works on dark circles and de-puffing, making you look more awake. Think of it like a shot of coffee, but for your eyes.

We specially like the packaging. You can use the ball-like tip to gently massage the area around the eye. A little goes a long way, so this one is an investment that really gives returns!

Garnier Eye Roll On

Garnier Skin Natural White Complete Eye Roll-On (Rs 189)

We already know why this product has garnered the kind of attention that it has. The metallic roller at the end of that tube.

The roller is usually cool, and with a little product on it, it’s like a wonderful massage for the eyes that melts away the strain of hours of screen time you have racked up. It also de-puffs the eye bags, so you don’t have to pay excess baggage the next time you are flying.

It takes a while to work its magic on the dark circles (hey! they’re stubborn), but when it does, you’ll probably be okay to stow that concealer away.

Which one would you want? Let us know in the comments below.
