Favourite eye combination

It is simply shocking sometimes the extent to which we ignore taking care of our eyes. Hair spas, facials, manis and pedi's are something we all indulge in occasionally and for some reason, eyes are always taken for granted. 

Especially for a pc-addict like me, my eyes definitely need some pampering now and then. However at the same time, I am quite picky as to what I use around that area, as most of the products leave my eyes red, itchy and streaming! 

After using a tonne of products for a number of months, I have finally narrowed down two of Liz Earle products that suit me the best and ones I would consider to be my favourite. 

Liz Earle's Eye Bright(£9.70) contains ingredients which instantly release a cooling effect on coming in contact with the skin. I usually use this over cotton pads and it instantly makes a huge difference in making the eyes look awake. 

Here's a little before-after evidence for you guys...

I know its not a massive difference but it surely makes the eyes look 'awake' and less puffier in a swipe. For even better results or whilst I am suffering from allergies and swollen eyes, I usually chill the Eye Bright bottle in the fridge for a few minutes before applying it to a cotton pad. Pure heaven!

The lotion is pretty addictive so don't tell me I didn't warn you! I have been through uncountable bottles in the past few months. 

The Daily Eye Repair(£13.25) works amazingly whilst paired with the lotion. I usually apply it after the lotion so that way the eye area is moist and ready to absorb the eye cream. 

I like how the cream quickly sinks in but still hydrates the area well. I feel its preps up the skin for concealer to go on smoothly. That way that concealer creases less too!

Plus the eye cream contains light reflective particles, just like an illuminator pen to bounce light off those dark circles and fake brighter looking eyes. 

The great thing about both the products is that you can slather them all over and around the eye area and not worry about streaming eyes. Two thumbs up for catering for dry, sensitive skin types!

Any eye care must-have that I must know of? Feel free to share :)

Thanks for this post! Eyes are difficult to look after due to no circulation- products sink in and stop. I am always looking out for good eye products! x

we do have a same problem! I hate my darkcircle too >.< I've tried many product (from western to korean brand) and none of them was good enough to help me reduce the dark circle.
I'm going to buy more eye-serum from the body shop, it sounds promising. have you tried TBS - vit C eye serum and vit E eye serum? (they got a super brand already)


You don't need this at all! But I do see how it does brighten and I really like it.. too bad we don't carry Liz Earle :( You should try well-rested from Bare Minerals!
