This new launch from Elemis has gotten my attention straight away because I love eye products and I always try to carry an eye cream to tap under my eyes on top of my makeup during the day. The Elemis Pro Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm promises to bring light and radiance to even the darkest under-eye circles. After a particularly hard month with my dad being very ill, this is exactly what I am looking for.

I have never really had dark circles before but I definitely have something going on under my eyes right now!

The instant effect isn’t overly obvious in these photos but it definitely improved the situation in real life. It also feels so lovely – really cooling and nourishing and it leaves the under-eye area feeling super comfortable and looking very hydrated.

After makeup:

I absolutely love it on top of makeup. As I said, I have been tapping on eye cream on top of my makeup to refresh my eyes during the day for years and the formulation of this and the radiant effect is just perfect for this. Plus if my eyes are feeling tired, it really wakes everything up!

It is also great mixed in with concealer to boost hydration and luminosity.

Elemis Pro Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm is £34 for 10ml. Find it at Feel Unique, Look Fantastic and John Lewis.
