I love anything that brightens and evens out my under-eye area so Kiehl’s are on to a winner with their latest launch! Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector SPF30 (snappy name!!) feels like it was made for me, especially as it has SPF30! Here are the details.

So this little beauty contains mineral pigments that actually instantly reduce the appearance of dark circles by brightening the under eye area. Also, it claims not to just rely on caffeine which most under eye treatments do. The high SPF recognises a breakthrough discovery about the link between hyperpigmentation and dark circles especially when skin is ageing.

I am really pleased with this so far.  I usually use a truck load of YSL Touche Eclat or Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher under my eyes and I didn’t feel I needed it so much with this. It certainly creates a very nice place to start with makeup. I have had this on for about 6 hours, without touching up my makeup and it still looks pretty bright. I’m impressed so far.

Obviously I can’t comment on the long term benefits just yet.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector is £29 but you can currently get 10% off at John Lewis and House of Fraser.

One thought on “Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector SPF30 Review, Swatch

  1. I love the idea of a SPF 30 for my under eye area. I like my under eye daytime concealers to have a high SPF so this sound perfect. Definitely one to replace my current Clinique undereye concealer which split very badly!
