This week we test: eye cream
If you're staying up late to study, and that lack of sleep is showing on your face, an eye cream can help to hide those signs.
Herbfarmacy Just Eyes Cream (HK$295/15g)
This lightweight cream may not have an immediate effect on dark eye circles, but the ginseng and arnica are definitely soothing and hydrating.
Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream (HK$260/15ml)
Clinically proven to diminish dark circles and puffiness, the light texture of this cream means it's easily absorbed - but any magical effects are slow to reveal themselves.
DHC Q Eye Cream (HK$300/25g)
Non-greasy, unscented and not too thick, this cream is instantly absorbed. You might not see an immediate difference, but skin feel noticeably softer and more hydrated.
Skin Food Salmon Brightening Eye Cream (HK$315/15ml)
Don't panic - this doesn't smell of fish. This Omega 3-rich eye cream is far from oily, but intensively rehydrates the skin around your peepers. Shame it doesn't really hide panda eyes!
H2O+ Green Tea Reviving Eye Cream (HK$320/15ml)
Plants, algae and caffeine are combined to effectively moisturise the skin around the eyes - but any depuffing effects are not particularly noticeable.
