How it feels/smells/looks 

It’s really lightweight and doesn’t have any noticeable smell, it’s basically like a using a lightweight body butter.

Why I like it

You get instant results. I applied it only to one side, just to compare, and my dark circles looked instantly lighter. It’s an easy way to look waaaaay fresher than you feel.

Areas for improvement 

Nothing. I’m 100 per cent sold on this one.

Final comments

This tiny tub is pretty damn pricey. On the plus side though, you only need to use the tiniest amount to see results. I don’t see this one running out anytime soon.
