Lately (who am I kidding) or rather the past few months, I’ve been developing the habit of sleeping late. Not good – so not good. In order to maintain your beauty – you need to at least invest 8 hrs to sleep and I sadly do not do that. At most I would sleep 6 hrs and just the other day even less since I had to get up earlier than normal but went to sleep later than normal. =/ That’s when I know the bags under my eyes need extra attention and that’s where the Shiseido brightening cream comes into play.
Size: .54 oz.

What it claims: Specially developed with Shiseido’s own Spot Deacti Complex, this lightweight cream addresses both melanin formation and poor local microcirculation, two major causes of dark circles. The Dark Circle Targeting Complex reduces melanin and diminishes the appearance of melanin pigments. By gently massaging the cream onto the skin, local microcirculation is improved while a unique mix of Asian plant extracts recover moisture balance. Additionally, it contains Multi-Luminizing Powder with light diffusing properties to instantly bring luminosity to eye areas.
What it actually does: At first when using it, I thought that my bags had lightened due to getting more sleep on the weekends, but the past month or so, I ran out of it and haven’t used anything to replace it. Now I felt my bags have become more noticeable so this stuff does works. My bags were lightened and I didn’t have to use much concealer to cover even the latest of nights.
Skin Type: all skin types
Likelihood of Repurchase: I’d definitely repurchase this if there are no other competitors out there.
