I have reviewed products from the brand Cellnique in the past and was very impressed with the items I tried. Cellnique has branched out with a new sub-brand b.liv. I have been testing out their I'm Dark Circle Remover eye cream for a couple months now.
This is what the b.liv brand from Cellnique has to say about this product:
Hi, I'm Reliever. Dark Circle Reliever to be more precise and I have a mission possible: to lift away puffiness, reduce dark under eye circles and protect the delicate skin around your eyes against harmful environmental factors. What's my strategy? I'm using active ingredients to improve the blood circulation around the eye area and make sure your skin will feel nourished, rejuvenated and radiant. Heavy eyes, tired skin no more! Mission accomplished!
Diminishes dark circles + puffiness
• Diminishes dark circles
• Lifts away eye puffiness
• Offers hydration
• Non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic formulation
The first thing I want to say is that I absolutely love the texture of this product. It has the most amazing, silky texture. It just feels so nice when you apply it. So nice that I admit to using this product all over my face on a few occasions. It has a very subtle pearlized glow that helps illuminate the eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
The main actives in the I'm Dark Circle Reliever are:
- N-Hydroxysuccinimide: Activates the elimination of blood originated pigments responsible for the dark circle colour and local swelling .
- Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone: Helps reduce capillary permeability to prevent leakage that leads to dark bruise-like discoloration - dark circles.
- Dipeptide-2: Smoothes the eye contours and reduces bagginess.
- Palmitoyl Oligopeptide: Reinforces the elasticity of the skin and tones the eye area.
While I don't have much of an issue with dark circles the Reliever product is also designed to help reduce puffiness. Puffiness of the upper lids is my main skin care concern when it comes to my eyes. I am of course all about preventing wrinkles in that area but my more immediate obsession has always been to improve the appearance of my upper lids. That is why the I'm Dark Circle Reliever cream was selected for review over the I'm Wrinkle Eraser product they also offer.
In terms of results I haven't really noticed anything dramatic or quantifiable. That being said I rarely ever experience substantial results with skincare. It has kept my eye area hydrated and healthy. I have experienced no milia or other issues with this eye cream. It also has a lovely light texture that functions beautifully under makeup. I have been very happy with it these past couple months and haven't been anxious to switch to something else. Would I purchase a replacement? No. Simply because I will always be looking for that miracle product that will FINALLY do something to improve the condition of my upper eyelids. I think maybe it is time to start saving up my skincare money and go for Blepharoplasty! I love the plastic pump packaging but not really a fan of the creepy eye ball on top.
