I was recently sent the Nourish RevitalEyes Kale Biomimetic Eye Cream* to try out. I have horrendous dark circles which I think have been genetically passed down to me because I drink plenty of water and get atleast 8 hours sleep a night if not more. I was eager to try this out because I know the health benefits of kale so having the ingredients in an eye cream sounded really interesting.

Nourish’s Revital-Eyes Kale Biomimetic Anti-Ageing Eye Cream claims to be an intense treatment for tired and puffy eyes affected by dark circles and wrinkles. It features essential vitamins B, E & K, antioxidants and peptides and light emitting Tonka Bean to brighten the eye area. The power of superfood Kale Oil Extract is used to protect skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and redness whilst promoting healing and a reduction in swelling.
As I am only 21, the effects that this claims to have on wrinkles does not matter to me, nor the puffy eyes as I don’t suffer from this either. The cream is very lightweight and feels soothing under the eyes. I have been using it day and night (almost everyday) for over 6 weeks now however, it hasn’t helped my dark circles as much as I had hoped. I use a small amount on my ring fingers to dab it around the eye area to avoid dragging the delicate skin around the eyes. There is a slight improvement but I’m really disappointed because after reading the impressive ingredients list, it should work for me! It is really soothing and cooling under the eyes and keeps my under-eyes hydrated and feeling nourished however I couldn’t justify spending £30 on a cream that doesn’t do an awful lot for dark circles so unfortunately it’s a no from me!
You can get it from Being Content for £29.50 for 10ml.
