Review: sk:n Brightening & Firming Eye Cream

I'm always on the quest for products that disguise my dark circles, but hadn't tried anything to combat them. When this landed on my doormat I was super chuffed! Prevention is better than cure right?


sk:n say: Active ingredients supply moisture and nutrients to the skin around the eyes. They are clinically proven to reduce the signs of puffiness and dark circles, protects against photo-ageing and also target fine lines and wrinkles, achieving visible results within 28 days.

I say: Thanks to it containing lots of skin-loving goodies, the eye cream moisturises whilst helping to firm, regenerate and brighten skin. I've found the skin around my eyes is super soft now - I was prone to the odd dry patch - so I've seen a definite improvement. My dark circles are a lot less pronounced. Overall I have to say I'm super impressed with this product. I find I have to conceal a lot less now. I can get away with a swipe of YSL Touche Eclat and voila! That's something I thought I'd never be able to say!


sk:n sayTo be applied in the morning and evening after cleansing. Smooth onto the skin around the eye.

I say: I've been using this for well over a month now, morning and night as instructed. The product looks and feels the same as a regular moisturising eye cream. It's not scented at all and it sinks into the skin really quickly without leaving skin feeling sticky or greasy. I dab on and pat in and leave it to do its magic. And magic it does.

Price: £20.00
Size: 20ml
Available from: sk:n


Product: 10/10
Packaging: 10/10
Price: 8/10
Overall: 9/10
Purchase: Absolutely!

  1. I love that you say it has reduced your dark circles, I am always on a hunt for eye creams that do this. I currently use Origins GinZing but I definitely want to try this. Great pst :) LaceyLoves

    1. It really has, I'm so impressed! I've not tried Origins GinZing but I'll have a look for it. Thank you x

  2. I'm trying to find an eye cream that does this, I've been using It's Potent! from Benefit but I don't think it's doing much of a job. I think I'll have to give this a go! xo

    1. I've not really seen or heard much about the Benefit skincare range. I'd definitely recommend the sk:n cream - it's fab! x

  3. Where do you purchase this in the states?

    1. Unfortunately sk:n don't currently ship outside of the UK and Boots USA don't stock other brands. Sorry I couldn't be more help!
