Eye creams are my little obsession. I have very thin and dry under eyes so finding a perfect eye cream has been a terrible task. I need hydration, yet light, anti-aging and radiating. I have been using Clinique Pep-Start for two weeks now and can't get enough. 

Packaging isn't something new as the cream is dispensed onto a plastic ball which helps distributing it on sensitive under eye area. I always preferred lightly tapping the eye creams in, worried any other motion to be too harsh for this delicate skin. This applicator is just perfect, it's so smooth, it makes the application very enjoyable. Cream is packed in to fun, orange packaging, which brightens up my skincare drawer :) 

Formula is super light, yet extra hydrating. Under eyes are moisturised within seconds and cream sinks in quickly. It helps reduce puffiness within 30 seconds and long term helps reducing of the dark circles. It's not illuminating but it does brighten the area instantly. I am in love, it replaced my other day eye gel. It provides a great barrier for under eye concealer and preps the skin there for makeup. My concealer has never looked better, as my under eyes are now properly cared for :)

Here's what Clinique has to say about it:

A pep rush for eyes. Just 3 seconds to look wide awake, refreshed. Hydrates, brightens, perks you up. Its cool touch and de-puffing tip help keep eyes looking fresh. Smooths the way for makeup, too. Have it on hand. Ophthalmologist Tested.
