But while you’ve fine-tuned your skincare routine and upgraded your makeup bags with the latest beauty products, you might be forgetting a more long-lasting way to brighten tired eyes: eye cream.
As much as we’d all love to clock a full eight hours of sleep a night, sometimes the only way to banish our dark circles until the midnight hour returns is to reach for our trusty concealer.
If that’s the case, take a moment to swot up on our guide to the best eye creams that will banish dark circles, bags and puffiness in one swipe. Then, allow us to introduce another skincare hero to your repertoire: Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright Eye Crème.
The cult favourite Scandi brand is back on our radar after Cosmopolitan reported that the beloved eye cream is currently trending as the number one bestseller on Sephora right now, with one product being sold every three minutes.
As the name suggests, the yellow-tinted cream is inspired by banana powder, and has the effect of a warm, sunny Instagram filter when it comes to illuminating those dreaded under-eye bags.
Packed with a potent mix of vitamin C, aloe juice and green tea extracts, the collagen rich cream not only hydrates, nourishes and moisturises the delicate under-eye area, but it also contains a mysterious “special pigment” which works to colour-correct stubborn dark circles.
According to beauty fans, the super-powered cream also doubles as a soft-focus primer AND concealer, helping to blur the appearance of pesky fine lines.
Before you despair at the absence of Sephora in the UK, you’ll be pleased to hear that the skincare staple is now available in Boots. Hooray!
We recommend you hot-foot it the nearest store asap though, because this little beauty is in serious demand. Plus, if we’re being real, it’s a total boost for your bathroom #shelfies.
