PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
What it is:
A highly moisturizing, anti-dark circle eye treatment.

What it is formulated to do:
Specially developed with Shiseido’s own Spot Deacti Complex, this lightweight cream addresses both melanin formation and poor local microcirculation, two major causes of dark circles. The Dark Circle Targeting Complex reduces melanin and diminishes the appearance of melanin pigments. By gently massaging the cream onto the skin, local microcirculation is improved while a unique mix of Asian plant extracts recover moisture balance. Additionally, it contains Multi-Luminizing Powder with light diffusing properties to instantly bring luminosity to eye areas.

Price: Around $60 CAD for 0.54 oz / 16 ml

FOR BEST RESULT
-During the first use, press the pump several times to initiate flow of cream. This dispenser has been designed to protect the formulation from the effects of light and air.
– Use every morning and every night prior going to sleep.
-Pat gently onto undereye area, then blend using gentle circular massaging motions with the ring finger.

WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I really love the Shisheido White Lucent skincare line! I have 6 products from this line that I bought back in December. I’ve been using everything for over 2 months now and I’m honestly loving the results. I’ll have to do many more reviews about the other products that I’ve tried but for today I want to talk about this Brightening Eye Treatment from the collection.

The first thing that I have to say is, like most Shiseido skincare products, the results are NOT instant. So do not expect this to be a magic cream that erases your dark circle over night because it will not do that. You have to be persistent with their skincare routine for at least a month before you can see the results. Even though the waiting time is long, but the results are definitely worth the wait!

After a month of using, I definitely noticed that the skin under my eyes have gotten brighter and my dark circle has been dramatically minimized. It is also very easy to blend and it’s extremely moisturizing. It doesn’t feel oily on my eyes, which I really like. I hate it when an eye cream is too oily because it will cause my skin to react and little bumps under my eyes will form. So it’s very good that this cream is not oily. I don’t think this cream works on fine lines or puffiness since it only targets dark circles. So if you have dark circles I would highly recommend this product!

The only downside, of course, it’s the price tag. Even though the bottle looks really big, there’s actually not a lot of product inside. This means that the $60 CAD you spend on the cream will last for less than a month. (I try to be really careful when I use it and I make sure that I don’t pump too much) If you are careful, I’m sure that the product will last longer :)
