Do you suffer from dark circles under the eyes?:
Panda feels your pain.
I often blame my dark circles on the lack of sleep, but the science tells us that sleep isn’t actually a contributing factor to dark circles (although I certainly have puffier eyes when I haven’t slept that seem to make my dark circles look worse!).
Dark circles begin as little capillaries under the eye area – blood that passes through these occasionally leak through into the surrounding areas. Your body cleans up this blood, and its remnants are a dark blue colour, similar to a bruise. They can also be heredity (take a good look at mum now!)
Dark circles are also not caused by this:
So now you know.
On to the review which is of the Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Massage Serum:
The Salmon range from Skinfood focuses on brightening the skin and eye area. I already own their Salmon concealer which does a rather good job!
Designed with a relaxing massage tip, it intensifies blood circulation on eye area and enables faster absorption of omega-3 fatty acid, arbutin and vitamins.
This massager is to be used just twice a week.
You press the nib down and the product comes out. I think this is phallic…
Here I am with my dark circles in tow.
The serum doesn’t smell fishy (don’t worry!) it does feel cool and light. I used this under my eyes and massaged it in (I also put it in the fridge first) and it is quite relaxing and does a good job of hydrating the under eye area.
I am guessing the massaging motion itself really helps with circulation.
Afterwards, my skin felt soft and smooth. Did it reduce dark circles?
Not that I noticed although there is an overall brightening effect. But no, you still need that concealer.
I like the fact this is really handy to use and its a nice intensive hydrating feeling. Like I said earlier, this is not going to remove any dark circles but it’s nice to give your eyes a treatment now and then.
