I was born with dark under eye circles. Yes, I am one of the unfortunate people who will never be able to get rid of their dark circles. I am like a panda who has really pale skin but deep and dark eyes. I still have hopes though that my dark circles will lighten even just a few shades. I have tried various eye creams before that I am hoping will help battle my dark circles.
If you read this review, you know that I love Laneige. I have tried only one product from them before but I am in-love with how effective it is. Since then I have been curious about other Laneige products so I decided to give the White Plus Renew Eye Cream a try. I was contemplating whether to get the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye cream but since I loved the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack Ex I decided to go for the Laneige eye cream instead. I really had high hopes for this product but just like all the other products I used, it did nothing to lighten my dark circles. It is supposed to help lighten and whiten the under eye area as it is a whitening eye cream (based on the name of the product) but after using it for 3 months now, I can't see any difference from before I used it and now.
- Hydrating and moisturizing
- Available in the Philippines
- Little goes a long way (there is so much product in one tube)
- Comes with a metal massager to relax and decrease puffiness of the eyes
- Quite expensive (bought it for $37US)
- It did not lighten/whiten my under eye area
Overall, if you are looking for an eye cream that is highly moisturizing, I would recommend the Laneige White Plus Renew Eye Cream. Sadly, it did nothing to lighten/whiten my under eye area which is really what it's supposed to do. It could probably be that my dark circles are hereditary and innate which is why it did not work. I am already losing hope that my dark eyes will stay like this forever. Oh well, love your body, right?
