Tout: Korres Black Pine Eye Cream

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had dark under-eye circles. No matter how much I sleep or how well-rested I feel, I seem to permanently have deep purple bags under my eyes. While I’ve gotten pretty good at covering them up with different primers and concealers, I have not been so lucky at banishing them altogether.

Over the years, I’ve tried a number of different creams and serums that claim to work wonders but, in reality, did little more than moisturize my skin. That is until I discovered Korres’s Black Pine 3D Sculpting, Firming, and Lifting Eye Cream. This anti-aging eye cream not only diminishes the look of dark circles, but it also banishes wrinkles and puffiness. The powerful product is formulated with the brand’s patented ElastiLift-3D complex, black pine polyphenol, and black tea extract that work together to firm and brighten your skin.

I was hooked on the cream with just one use. After the first night of wearing the product, I woke up noticing that my eye area not only felt firmer but was also less puffy and much brighter than normal. Since then, I’ve been using it religiously for about two months, and while my dark circles aren’t completely gone, it’s the best they’ve ever looked.

I apply the product every night as the last step in my skincare routine and let the potent formula work its magic while I sleep. The cream is dermatologist-tested, so it is safe to use on even the most sensitive of skin, but I will caution not to use too much of the cream at a time because it can sting your eyes.

According to customer reviews, I’m not the only one who is obsessed with the eye cream. “Holy Grail of eye creams if you ask me. I have had dark circles since high school and have found nothing that works before this. Within minutes of putting Korres black pine serum on my eyes are drastically different,” said one reviewer.

Other shoppers can’t stop raving about the product’s ability to banish crow’s feet and wrinkles too, with one writing, “I’ve finished two bottles of this already. Every night I use this with black pine eye serum together. Last year I started noticing five small wrinkles on the corner of my right eye. After using this eye cream and the eye serum together over one year, I barely see the wrinkles!”

At $56 for a .51-ounce bottle, the product is on the pricier side, but I’ve found that even the smallest drop goes a long way. Plus, the fact that it has diminished my pesky under-eye circles—in a way that no other product has—makes the price tag completely worth it.
