Soap and Glory "you won't believe your eyes" illuminating under-eye serum review

For the last few weeks I've been using this Soap & Glory product to attack the dark bags under my eyes.




I've tried a few roller ball under-eye products before, and got bored of them rather quickly as I didn't see any results.  But this one from Soap and Glory has had me hooked for the past few weeks, because it actually does reduce the dark circles, hoorah!

I don't really suffer from puffiness, which this is also designed to target, but I do get very bad dark circles.  The cream has a funny iridescence to it, which actually gives an instant effect on the dark circles - I think it's some sort of trick of the light, but the genuinely look immediately improved when I roll this on, and I like that.   

The idea is that you give the tube a little squeeze and product will then appear around the roller balls, and you then roll it on under each eye.  I've been using it every night and some mornings too unless I've used another eye cream.  My dark circles are still there, but I'd say they've diminished by about 50% so I'm certainly going to keep on using this and see if I get any further results.  

Even if this product can't completely banish the dark circles (is that even possible?) I'd definitely re-purchase as this is the only cream I've tried where I've been able to notice an actual improvement in this area, and I love the instant trick of the light effect too.  Saying that, I think this tube will last me ages - after a few weeks of use I think it's still about two thirds full.

"You won't believe your eyes" costs £10.50 and you can buy it at Boots where it's currently on a 3 for 2 offer with all other Soap & Glory products (and across other 'facial skincare' I think).

Do you also get dark circles under your eye no matter how much sleep you get? Any tips?

  9. I also have super dark bags under my eyes. A make-up artist told me it's not always to do with sleep, but can be about the oxygen circulation. I think dehydration can make them worse so drink plenty of water. She suggested massaging (pressing) along your socket bone under your eye to stimulate circulation. (Does that make sense??). Which I guess is kinda what the balls in this product do? x

    1. I don't drink enough water, so that could well be true for me, but I don't get enough sleep either, ooops! Yes I do think that's what the roller balls do xx

  12. This sounds great! Will definitely have to try this! I suffer from dark circles, and they do get especially worse when I don't get so much sleep. I did find that Super Bright Eyed Dr Nicholas Perricone did help a bit! But this Soap and Glory product sounds better! I also find that Vaseline sometimes helps, if I smear Vaseline on them before I go to sleep, they seem to have reduced by morning.
