I’m forever testing beauty products…brightening serums, hydrating masks, protein-rich conditioners, you name it. My eye lids have had the fortune of soaking up all sorts of eye creams promising smoothing, brightening and lifting. If I’m honest with you, though, I’ve never actually needed a fancy eye serum or eye cream. I’d incorporated these items into my regimen as a preventative measure. That was until my now 3-month old daughter was born!
You probably aren’t surprised to hear that waking up multiple times a night to feed a screaming newborn might result in tired looking eyes. Almond milk lattes were keeping me awake but I frantically revisited my arsenal of eye treatments to see what would make me look
awake. I revisited an uber-moisturizing eye balm from our collection and even bought a snail-based eye mask in Koreatown, but had no success. British esthetician, Antonia Burrell
, sent me a few products to consider, including an eye cream with a fascinating metal ball applicator. I was intrigued by the looks of it but I fell absolutely, madly in love with the eye cream after using it for just a week. My dark circles were fading and my dull eye lids regained their glow. Apparently, Antonia Burrell’s Bright + Lift Eye Cream
has white birds of paradise extracts, a rare ingredient that is proven to brighten dark under eye circles and delicately bring radiance back to your skin. I’m constantly asked how I choose the products that line our e-shelves. Well, aside from Antonia being a well-respected esthetician of color, this amazing eye cream (and the brand’s impressive scar correcting serum) were the factors that convinced me to add Antonia Burrell’s
products to our collection.
