Review: Olehenriksen Truth Banana Bright Eye Creme
True Story, the week before I got the Banana Bright Eye Cream I saw a man at my local Flea Market placing banana peels on his eye area while he was selling vintage items in his shop. I had a thought, he must be onto something, he must know the power of banana for brightening the eye area, so I promptly purchased the eye cream everyone has been raving about. So here's three reasons why I love it:
1. It is color correcting: the yellow tint helps color correct dark under eye circles, this is especially important if you are looking for a quick fix. I love wearing this alone when I am just going to be home, no makeup on, and just giving my skin some time off. I also do a thick layer of this when I am masking, I like to think of it as a mask for my under eyes, after all they shouldn't be ignored.
2. It brightens the eye area over time: not only does it color correct but using it over time also brightens the eye area. I have used the Banana Eye Cream for almost a month, I wanted to give it enough time to see if I noticed any results. I am actually really happy with this product, most eye creams I have tried are really great at moisturizing, and maybe reducing puffiness, yet do nothing for dark circles but this product does all three! The consistency feels luxurious and creamy but once you put it on it is very lightweight and absorbs really well. It keeps my under eye area moisturized, reduces puffiness (thanks to the Vitamin C) and it has also brightened my dark circles, I almost couldn't believe it. I have really dark circles that are hereditary, so I know that I will always have them but it's nice to see a product that actually works! Of course I still have dark circles but I have only used it for a month and have already noticed results.
3. Can be used day and night: I also love this product because it can be used under makeup as a primer. The fact that the Banana Eye cream can be used as a primer means that you get more wear out of the product. I am a big fan of products that do double duty, after all if you are investing in a skincare product you want to be able to get good use out of it. When I use the eye cream as a primer I notice that my concealer stays on longer and doesn't crease into my fine lines as opposed to no primer. I also love slathering this on at night and waking up looking more refreshed in the morning.
Verdict: It comes with a generous amount, is multi-use and actually works. I think it is worth every penny. It is also vegan and cruelty free for all my conscious shoppers out there!
