Product Review: Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream
When it comes to under eye bags, they are something I struggle with all the time. I am constantly trying new skincare products to help combat dryness, puffiness, dark circles, and more. There have been products I’ve loved, and products I’ve hated. The Pep-Start Eye Cream by Clinique is a product I love.
I started using the Pep-Start Eye Cream a couple months ago. Before I give a product review, I like to make sure I have used it enough to properly review it. I have been using Pep-Start every single morning and night for more than 60 days, so I think it’s safe for me to give an honest review.
This product works well with all skin types, including normal, oily, combination, dry, and sensitive. That’s pretty impressive, considering not all skincare products are fit for that many skin types.
How to Use
I like to use a small amount of product and apply underneath my eyes as well as the eyelids. I dab and smooth it in with my finger until all the product is absorbed into the skin. This instantly hydrates that area of the eye. Hydrated skin is so important; especially near that area of the face. If your under eye area is not hydrated, when you apply makeup such as concealer, it can make everything look really cakey.
Pep-Start not only hydrates, but it brightens the skin, too. I would by no means say that the darkness under my eyes and on my eyelids is gone (I’m sure it never will be), but this has helped. The peptides in the product help support natural collagen reserves that can be beaten up by stress, tiredness, etc.
The number one thing that I love about Pep-Start Eye Cream is how lightweight it is. The last few eye creams that I’ve used were too heavy, and therefore caused milia under my eyes. If you don’t know what milia is, they are little white bumps that can be very difficult to go away. This is product anything but heavy.
I hope you enjoyed this review on my new favorite eye cream. What’s your favorite? Leave a comment to let me know!
