I have been plagued by dark under eyes for as long as I can remember. I distinctly remember noticing them as early as age 11 – is that weird? Perhaps, but I can’t think of a time I haven’t been looking for ways to conceal them, brighten them and make them go away.

I haven’t really explored the world of under-eye creams, mostly because I’ve always had a hard time believing they could really work. That, and I’m not the best at maintaining a solid skincare routine for general maintenance, let alone adding in extra steps for smaller problem areas (side note: Naomi from In the Buff is keeping me on track, ever since my facial with her!).

So, when the Olay Fresh Effects {Bright On Schedule!} Eye Awakening Cream came across my desk I was very intrigued. For starters, the packaging was perfect for someone like me. No fuss, super cute and easy to throw in with my daily go-to beauty products. I could easily see myself quickly swiping on a few dabs of cream before diving into my makeup for the day.

The product is designed to cool and brighten the skin underneath your eyes to help with dark circles or puffiness (both are issues at their worst for me first thing in the morning). It’s oil-free and is infused with honeysuckle, white tea, and cucumber extracts to help it work its magic.

I’ve been using this product now (almost) daily for over a month and I must say – colour me impressed! I genuinely notice a difference in the colour under my eyes when I use this cream. The tri-roller ball feels awesome when applying as its super cooling and helps to really open my eyes and the cream absorbs quickly so I’m not lingering waiting to get started on my makeup.

If you’re looking to build it into a daily regime you already have in place, be sure to put this on after you cleanse and moisturize the rest of your face. The product retails for $10.97 at Walmart, which is a steal if you ask me given the results this little tube of magic produces. Definitely check it out if you want to look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the morning!
