Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $34

THE SKINNY: It’s Potent, Benefit's eye cream, is a thick, refreshing moisturizer that does a good job fighting dark circles from lack of sleep.

This eye cream is soothing and didn't irritate my eyes. I'd almost consider replacing my normal eye cream, Ole Henriksen's Ultimate Lift Eye Gel, with it.

(Almost. Ole Henrickson's eye cream is cool, like applying a cucumber to your eyes. Benefit doesn't have that sensation, and I'm not ready to give it up.)

It's Potent uses a peptide complex, botanical extracts and loquat extract to protect and nourish the skin under your eyes. My eyes do look brighter in the mornings, even when I've gotten less than six hours of sleep.

I've been really happy with the sample.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.
