Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream

Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream Review

I've been sliding shifts at work for a while. My work used to start at 6 a.m. and then it got earlier to 5 a.m. because of daylight savings time, and now I'm currently on the graveyard shift for 12 a.m. to 9 a.m. so if that work schedule isn't responsible for my eye bags and crazy skin right now, then I don't know what it is.

Benefit Cosmetics It's Potent Eye Cream Review
I got this sample from my Benefit Cosmetics Advent Calendar and I know the full size retails for $34 in any Benefit store or even online.

I actually apply this eye cream before I go to sleep and under makeup. Because why not? I kind of need all the hydration I could get right now since I'm going to be awake starting 12 a.m. all the way until the sun rises... I might as well put an eye cream under makeup. Right?

It definitely moisturizes my under eyes and it just feels so good. Let me repeat myself... it really feels so darn good under my tired eyes. I also apply it with Benefit Ooh la lift and I do find that those products together brighten my under eye area but not comparable when I use a concealer.

If you're on the graveyard shift like me and you're looking for a good eye cream, then I think this would be your friend. If you're a fan of skin care products and specifically eye creams, then yes please put this on your list because this is definitely a must try! Consistency and formula-wise, it's not liquidy and not too creamy. It just adds the right amount of moisture for the under eye area. Be careful though, because if you put too much this product does sting a little.

Will I purchase the full sized product? I do have plans to purchase this in the future since I haven't seen a really good eye cream comparable to this one.


  1. Recently bought this. Glad to know it works in the long run. I don't see effects yet, I'm crossing my fingers.
