If you suffer from tired eyes and dark circles, you’ll love the new release from No7 later this month (19 Feb). No7 Beautiful Skin Dark Circle Corrector has been developed to help reduce dark circles in two weeks and instantly de-puff and illuminate tired eyes. The product combines light reflective technology in pearlescent particles for instant brightening with longer acting ingredients to reduce dark circles over time.
The formula includes active ingredients such as Vitamin C, caffeine and Pro Vitamin B5 to:
- improve firmness and tone around the eye contour
- drain excess fluid to reduce puffiness
- reduce dark circles
- moisturise the skin.
Product is dispensed through 3 little metal balls, which provide an instantly cooling effect on the skin which I find super soothing on tired eyes. Pearl extract helps reflect light while the yellow-gold liquid counteracts the blue tone of under eye shadows.
Squeezing the tube very gently releases the sheer golden fluid, which comes in one universal anti-dark shadow shade. NB this is not a concealer and although it adds an instant subtle radiance to the eye area, is not designed to completely disguise shadows. Don’t be tempted to overdo it to try and cover up as this is primarily a skincare product, which works well either alone or under make-up. I find that light application of a small amount works best to avoid pilling… I use my ring finger to make sure the product is completely blended into my skin after enjoying a few moments of the cooling applicator!
If you do wish to conceal dark shadows, you’ll need to apply a separate under eye concealer over this, or after foundation.
Top, straight from the tube and below, blended and left to dry, you can hopefully see the colour correcting golden sheen.
“In consumer trials more than 80% of (97) women agreed that their dark circles and puffiness were reduced after just 2 weeks and they felt more confident as a result.”I’ve only been using this product for a few days and enjoy the instant cooling and brightening effect… I look forward to seeing how it affects my dark circles after two weeks. NB no beauty product alone will achieve this: sufficient sleep, drinking lots of water and eating a healthy diet all contribute to reducing dark circles, so while it’s great to have a product that helps boost the process, it’s important to take a holistic approach.
NEW No7 Beautiful Skin Dark Circle Corrector, 15 ml, £13.50, will be available from 19 February in most Boots UK stores nationwide and online at boots.com
