I love the countryside. For me, there is nothing better than wrapping up warm with a hat, scarf, and boots on and crunching through the countryside on a winter’s day. I’m very lucky that I grew up surrounded by countryside and it’s something I cherish every time I’m back oop North.

Review | B. Engergised Eye Cream

I’d been thinking for a while that I should buy an eye cream. Not that I’m getting old or anything, but I’m often reminded that what we do with our skin today reflects on how it looks in the future. I cleanse and moisturise the rest of my face everyday so why not my eyes too? With their delicate and fragile skin, it seems crazy to not give them the attention and care they deserve. Furthermore, on a personal note, I think my eyes are my best feature so I decided to give them a bit of TLC!

Superdrug have a new range launching around the country called B. They make lotions and potions for different ages as well as having a make up range. As far as I’m aware the range is just called B. and the products stem from that eg, B. Energised, B. Active… See what they did there? Because ‘B.’ is like ‘be’… gettit? *rolls eyes in distain/despair*

Aside from the appalling name (which is nigh on impossible to find in google – seriously sack the brand manager!) the range looked pretty good so I thought I’d give them a go… I bought the B. Energised Eye Cream

This stuff is wonderful! I seriously can’t praise it highly enough. It reduced my dark circles dramatically – after two days I had hardly any darkness under my eyes. It also reduced the puffiness I was getting from working late hours and little sleep. Plus the whole formula is cooling so perks you up in the mornings!

According to the website the cream has clinically proven results and:
Brightens – Live Yeast Cell Extract helps reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Cools and de-puffs – With Allantoin and Caffeine.
Hydrates – With a delicate blend of moisturisers (including Hyaluronic Acid).

This eye cream is for ‘Skin Phase 1’ ie 20s and 30s (as I am 23) but there are eye creams available through Skin Phases 2 and 3, and the formulations change according your skin needs as you get older.

I actually couldn’t believe how much of an effect this had on my eyes – they look healthier, brighter and much less puffy. I will definitely purchase this again. Also, at £8.99 a tube this is much cheaper than the high end products, and noticeably cheaper that the other drug store creams. Bargain! I love it!

What eye creams do you use? Have you tried any other B. products? Am I silly to be worrying about my eyes at 23?! Probably.
