Darphin Ideal Resource Anti-Dark Circle Eye Illuminator

Loads of AW14 beauty collections seem to be about eye makeup, and the focus on the eyes, so, it’s just as well this little beauty from Darphin is launching then, isn’t it?!

Darphin’s Ideal Resource Anti-Dark Circle Eye Illuminator is a big name for a little product, but it has big claims. It’s a specialised treatment for the eye contour area and it delivers a triple action for the specific needs of this fragile area to create instant radiance, a rejuvenated look and it has a soothing action designed to give the entire eye area a youthful sparkle!

Sounds perfect! It uses various plant extracts and technologies to specifically help the ultra-fragile area around the eye, which ages more quickly than the rest of the face in most of us and is very delicate.

The special applicator tip has been inspired by the advanced massage techniques used by beauty therapists at the Darphin Vendome Institute! It’s cool metal applicator makes it instantly soothing on eyes. And Darphin have provided a quite complex set of instructions on how to use this roll-on serum.

Use it first thing in the morning to awaken the area. Simply squeeze the tube to release a pearl-sized dab of cream, apply under the eyes, smoothing from inner corner to outer corner in a back and forth motion, repeating three times.

Do the same movement just below the brow bone. Apply a quick press-release motion beneath the eyebrow one pressure point at a time for a total of four pressure points. Do  the same below the eye area. You can also finish by smoothing the applicator top from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye area using a small zig-zag wave motion. Then gently massage to remove any excess product.

And if your eyes don’t look brighter after that, I don’t know if there is any hope!
