Kate Somerville CytoCell Dark Circle Corrective


RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $75 for 0.5 ounces

THE SKINNY: After reading a few other reviews, I was convinced that this was A MIRACLE CREAM. Goodbye, dark circles. See ya later, tired eyes.

Well not exactly.

The Kate Somerville CytoCell Dark Circle Corrective cream went on nice and only took a small dab. The little lines seemed to vanish, but I was left with a slightly puppy look in the under-eye area. (I think that is the opposite of what is supposed to happen.) And even after repeated use, my eyes looked no less tired.

This is the first Allure Best of Beauty Award winning product I have ever tried and not liked. They usually nail it!

Thank goodness I did not pony up $75 for this one. (Especially since it recommends applying twice daily.)

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. No results. No reason to keep applying this cream.

CHECK IT OUT: Find out more about the Kate Sommerville line and buy direct. You can also read tales from a bunch of people who totally disagree with me on this one. Have you tried it? What did you think?
