I’m sleeping quite well at the moment, which is great because I don’t feel tired. Sadly though getting enough sleep doesn’t seem to get rid of my dark circles, although it does help prevent them getting worse.
I’ve tried quite a few creams and treatments for dark circles, but have yet to find the ‘one’, so I was keen to try Embryolisse Smoothing Eye Contour Care Cream. Now I like this cream a lot, but I’m not sure it’s the ‘one’ that I am looking for, but I suspect that I might have unrealistic expectations there. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and try to use it twice a day. It’s not a heavy cream so it can be used in the daytime too. I have noticed an improvement in terms of reduced puffiness and the dark circles are definitely lighter. The fine lines around my eyes seem less obvious too. The cream contains a combination of vitamins, hyaluronic acid(which helps to retain moisture, keeping skin plump, firm and glowing), and plant stem cells which help skin cells regenerate themselves. It’s not the cheapest eye cream on the market, but far from the most expensive either and a little goes a long way. I think I will be buying it again and as it’s available from Boots, I can use my Advantage Points to help with that. RRP£24.99 from Boots.
I’ve also been using Embryolisse Intense Anti-Fatigue Cream before a night out. My skin can look a bit tired after a long day and it’s in need of a bit of a pick-me-up. I’d also use in the morning after a night out, especially if it was a late one. My skin feels soft and smooth when I use the cream, but I do think it does more than just an ordinary moisturiser. It’s packed full of the latest skin care ingredients like hyaluronic acid and natural sugars. The rich formula plumps and smoothes the skin, whilst instantly lifting the face, erasing fine lines and relaxing taut features. It feels rich enough to have an effect on the skin without leaving it sticky. I can start on my makeup routine straight away after applying. So far I’m very pleased with this cream, and whilst I have used it less than the eye cream, I’ve been very happy with the results so far and I do think this could also be one that I buy again. In fact, I’m tempted by a lot of the range.
