When the lovely guys at Chemist Direct contacted me and very kindly offered the opportunity to review a few products from their site I jumped at the chance to first off try the new La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Eyes. Using an eye cream is quite a new thing for me, only now am I realising the benefits of using a seperate eye cream to my regular moisturiser. Especially now as I hit my twenties, I really want to get into a lifetime habit of looking after my skin.
Pigmentclar Eyes is described as a 'dark circle skin-evening corrector', the idea of which really drew me to try it. I've always wondered why even when I get a great nights sleep I still have really dark under eye circles. According to La Roche-Posay blue circles are 'due to poor circulation' and brown dark circles are 'caused by melanin overproduction'. Thank god for concealer that's all I can say!
It contains concentrated PhE-Resorcinol, which after a quick google search turns out to be a brightening compound apparently 100x more powerful than vitamin C. The other ingredients include Ferulic Acid (antioxidant & sun protective benefits) and Ginkgo (enhances blood circulation). There's plenty there which backs up it's claim to reduce dark circles but does it actually work?
I have high hopes that after a few more weeks use the Pigmentclar Eyes will hopefully start to reduce my under eye circles. Even if it doesn't, it's a real joy to use especially first thing in the morning and I will happily carry on using it.
