Eye creams have always been a non-essential in my skincare routine, an added step which is easily overlooked or replaced by any old day or night cream. The lovely people from Beauty Time Therapies offered to send me an eye concentrate to rival all other eye creams by the relatively little known HydroPeptide, a brand which boasts scientific backup and me being now a fully fledged Chemistry student, I was very interested. It is accompanied by a rather impressive ingredient list explanation on the website, with items such a Matrixyl (a popular peptide ingredient made famous by No7's cult Protect and Perfect range) which helps stimulate collagen production and Haloxyl which claims to reduce dark circles in 2 months if used everyday!
I have been testing out HydroPeptide for a month now and am finding my dark circles are a little less prominent after many a late night, and my under eye area is a lot more hydrated, a problem which is especially important as winter starts to negatively impact my already dry skin. As for its anti-ageing properties, it is a tad too early to tell on my 18 year old skin, but I have definitely noticed a clear difference in the skin surrounding my eyes after just a month. At £45 a pop it is definitely more on the expensive side of skincare, but if you're looking for a more luxury product to target any signs of dark circles this may be the one for you!
