    THE INKEY LIST - Brighten-I Eye Cream

    THE INKEY LIST Brighten-I Eye Cream Reviews

    I use the Inkey List Caffeine eye cream every day but thought I'd get this to alternate. However, it hasn't really made a difference to dark circles and it also clumps up dry/gunky product at the top of the tube which is a bit unpleasant to remove every time you want to get the cream out!
    No changes.
    I didn't notice any changes. I did a test: one eye with the cream, one w/o, and no changes...
    Already see the difference
    Very nice product all and all, my undereye looks brighter, the skin is definitely lighter in shade. Also nice consistency, I am looking forward to the result by the time I finish the tube, then will see if it's worth to keep in my routine.
    Do not buy...
    This cream is useless, becomes runny and I did not find the applicator efficient wither, this is such a weird product, I cannot even name it, garbage.
    Feels nice going on and you don't need too much, but I didn't notice any changes.
    Brighten-i Eye Cream
    It helped me with my puffy eyes in the morning and with my dark undereyes. Has a nice feeling to it and made look more awake! Amazing.
    Doesn't do much brightening and doesn't hide any dark circles. However it has a light texture and the metal tip is cooling.
    So, I purchased this last year in November after I saw that there were quite a few lines and dryness under my eyes after I put on foundation one evening. I am mostly UK based and have fair sensitive and combination skin (and quite acne-prone) and what I have found is that the only time my skin under my eyes doesn't sting or burn is when I apply it on clean skin BEFORE any serums or treatments (I use Paula's Choice anti-redness treatment and then her moisturiser) ) if I use it after serums etc it is uncomfortable. I haven't really noticed much of a difference (but that is only because I haven't been using it religiously) HOWEVER, I do think that it really depends on your skin and how it reacts to various products. So, far I can't really complain and it does really help with puffiness and I give The Inkey List props because their prices are very affordable. I also like that when I put it on bare skin how cooling and soothing it is.
    No difference
    I initially read great reviews of this and I love every other product I've bought - but this doesn't do much for me at all. Absorbs easily but can't see any difference.
    No result
    It does nothing. I didn’t see even moisturizing
    Ну такое...
    Крем очень жидкий, а отверстие в аппликаторе слишком большое и из-за этого невозможно нормально контролировать порцию крема. Его всегда вытекает больше, чем нужно. А если наносишь толстым слоем, он слегка щиплет. И пахнет шампиньонами! Но отеков не вызывает и кожа век после нежная. На этом всё. The cream is very liquid, and the hole in the applicator is too large and because of this, it is impossible to properly control a portion of the cream. It always flows out more than necessary. And if you apply a thick layer, it slightly nips. And it smells like mushrooms! Does not cause skin and eyelids after tender. That's all.
    Dark circle cream
    This product was advertised on tv + a makeup artist recommended it so I thought I would give it a try I’ve tried all sorts to help but no avail even this product
    Worked for me
    I brought this after reading a lot of positive reviews. In my experience I found the cream light, it sunk into the eye area with ease. Didn’t feel heavy unlike other creams. I feel it minimises my lines and the dark patches under my eyes are slowly Fading. I only use this product in the morning. That seems to be sufficient for me. For reference, I am Asian skin toned and have dark circles and fine lines. This is slowly making a difference and I would buy it again.
    Burned my under eye area
    I got this cuz of the good reviews and I was very excited to try this eye cream!! But super disappointed as it burned under my eyes that I had to wash it off!
    Great for tired eyes!
    I have been using this eye cream in the morning for the last couple of weeks. I really like the texture of this as it is super lightweight and is great underneath makeup. I have also really enjoyed using the applicator to apply the eye cream as it feels amazing on tired eyes! This product has helped with puffiness; however, I can't say it has improved dark circles as of yet. If you like a lightweight texture I would recommend this, however, if you prefer a richer texture/ have very dry under eyes this probably isn’t the eye cream for you.
    Not working
    I'm using it every day from AM to PM, no results at all.
    Surprisingly powerful
    A combination of my job and a general addiction to all things beauty means that I try a lot of eye creams- often with mixed results. As the owner of some naturally pretty puffy and dry under eyes my preference tends to be alternating between a caffeine based/depuffing product in the morning, and something more nourishing at night. For me this eye cream falls somewhere between the two- with a fairly impressive brightening action as well as enough moisture that I can use this day and night. The strength of this does take some time to build up to though, and I found I needed to use it on alternate days initially. And on days where my skin is more sensitive I tend to skip this entirely and opt for something slightly gentler.
    Not working
    Hello. I bought it few weeks ago and it's not working, I'm using it every day from AM to PM, no results at all. I will never buy it again
    No difference what do ever, save your pennies.
    I was really hoping cheap eye cream can work but no.
    The applicator design needs changing
    I have not noticed anything yet. The applicator "nozzle" often squirts too much product even after closing it tightly. If you press it too hard you get too much product, so I anticipate that I will finish the bottle in less than a month. I love the other products though, but not this one.
    The Brighten-I Eye Cream absorbs quickly, isn't greasy! Keeps my eyes looking fresh and hydrated! Love this lightweight, creamy texture. I’m so obsessed with this eye cream that I’m definitely going to try more The Inkey List products.
    Love it so far!
    Brighten-I Eye Cream I’ve only used this a few times so far since getting this little tube of wonders. The application is wonderful, the silver tip applicator really helps to smooth and depuff my under eye area whilst working in the right amount of product for a nourished and radiant under eye. I can’t speak for the long term results just yet, but the first initial times I’ve used this eye cream have been a lovely experience. The texture of the cream is rich and nourishing without being TOO rich and heavy for the delicate under-eye area, like some other eye creams tend to be. Other creams that are too rich tend to give me heavy puffy bags under my eyes but this cream thankfully does not do that. I can’t wait to continue to use this cream and see long term results. I’m hoping for a more vibrant and refreshed under eye area long term but for the price point, you really can’t go wrong with The Inkey List! Such an effective brand that has gorgeous formulas and textures without the ridiculous price tag!
    Dark Circle Suffers Unite
    I have had dark circles since I can remember and have always looked for new eye creams to help a girl out. This is genuinely one of the few that I can see an actual difference with. I don't wear makeup during the day so this has been amazing because it has a subtle pearlescent tone, giving a cute glow. Also putting this in the fridge with the applicator being metal, is SO NICE on the eyes. We'll see how this works for the long term improvement but so far, loving it.
    I was sent this product to try out and I am absolutely loving it! The applicator makes the product so easy to apply and it really helps to brighten up my dark circles.
    Worst eye cream ever, do not buy.
    If I could leave 0 stars I would! This eye cream stung my under eye and all around, when I first started using it I thought it was stinging due to being a new product and would go, now I look like I have massive panda eyes, however, it’s not black it’s red. And anything I put on my eyes now whether it be makeup or cream still stings. Do not buy.
    I liked the product in the beginning because of the cooling effect, but after 1-2 months it started to get very thin in texture. After that it changed color and started to clump up. I bought it twice because I thought maybe I had a bad batch, but the same thing happened. It didn't really brighten either. Wouldn't reccomend.
    Very good product
    The product is quite good, I did not notice that it causes any irritation or stinging, a massage can be practised, it helped me a lot with swelling and tired eyes in the morning.
    I don't usually write negative reviews, however, I have spent today with a cold flannel under my eyes to soothe the irritation it has caused. I chose this product after a lot of research because I was looking for an under eye cream to conceal dark circles. On paper this seemed to match my criteria perfectly, however upon use I didn't see much difference. If anything it made my under eyes crease making it difficult to apply any makeup. A couple days in after use, I decide to apply it in the evening hoping it could work some magic overnight. Instead I woke up sore red under eyes. I don't know what ingredients in it that's causing a reaction, but I would hope it was gentle enough to put on an area that can be so delicate (hence having a specific cream for it). If I could upload a picture, I would. It has left my under eyes red, raw and creased. I'm 22 but it has made me look like an old woman with the wrinkles it has caused! Clearly the opposite effect of what you want a cream to do.
    Loving it!
    Makes no difference
    This was a fail for me - the initial reviews were great and i had some hopes, but after 3 months of regular use i see absolutely no difference. I'm 28 and i don't have to deal with many wrinkles yet, but i do have a few under my eyes where my skin is also more dry than the usual. I have some darkness under my eyes but nothing crazy. That being said, i didn't need miracles from this cream but some solid hydration under the eyes. It's not nearly hydrating enough, the applicator is way too big and uncomfortable although i must say it is nice that it's cooling. The cream is very and i mean very liquidy and it can pour out tons of product if you don't press very gently. Also better keep it horizontally so that it doesn't pour out all of a sudden. I must say i won't recommend or repurchase.
    Does make a difference
    I didn't think it was doing much, but then I used a different eye cream whilst on holiday and I realised my under eye circles looked darker than usual! So I was glad to go back to using this. I like the metal tip which is cooling, it can be a little hard to get out carefully as it's so liquid.
    Doesn't do much
    I wanted something that brightens and cools my eyes in the morning before my makeup. The metal tip is lovely! But that's the only thing I like about this. The eye cream itself doesn't do anything for me. Im 25 so my under eyes aren't that dry they just need a bit of refreshing in the morning. I've used this every day and honestly haven't seen a difference even straight after application. Much better eye creams out there for the same price. Nice for the cooling tip, but if you actually want something that you'll see a visible difference, don't waste money on this.
    No difference!
    I've been using this for 2 months, no difference to my under eye area unfortunately. It's a light cream, it easily absorbs and provides average hydration. I'm disappointed as I had high hopes after reading the product info....won't buy again!
    Good value for money
    I was looking for an easy to use, compactly packaged eye cream for my gym kit, and this checked all the boxes, especially with the price point. I don't use it often enough to see any difference in dark circles, but definitely hits the mark for me in terms of hydration, how quickly it absorbs, and how nice the applicator is. Even my partner likes it when I use it on him!
    Worth a try...
    I purchased this eye cream as I was missing one in my routine. Luckily, I do not particularly have any severe issues with my eye area (i.e. dark circles, wrinkles, etc.), but I wanted to incorporate an eye cream to help prevent any of these concerns occurring later in life. Being a makeup lover, I found that my under eye area often felt drier than the rest of my face after powder, so adding this extra splash of hydration before I begin my makeup has been amazing for me. I also love using this in the morning as it is quite a lightweight eye cream in comparison to others that I have tried. I would definitely say that if you have more serious eye concerns, then this cream may not be for you (hence the 4 stars), but if you are a beginner to skincare, this is a great affordable and hydrating eye cream to start with!
    Changed its smell after two months of use
    Honestly, I didn't see any work on me, but continued using it. After 1-2 months of using it changed its smell to mushroom.
    An Honest Review
    Problems: Dark under eyes The box that it comes in is very wasteful, to be honest. They give you a rectangular box for a long/skinny product. No manual or anything so a bunch of empty space for no reason. There seems to be a recurring issue with The Inkey List Products where the packaging does not quite allow you to control how much product comes out. The first time I used this cream, I tried squeezing it just below my eye and the cream shot right into my eye instead so be careful when you squeeze the tube. I always end up squeezing out more product than I want to no matter how careful I am being. The product also has a lot of air in it but what can you expect from the price I guess haha. It does not feel amazing on tired eyes. In fact, it feels like I shouldn't even be putting it on my eyes by the way it smells. It's a sharp smell while also smelling sort of starchy. The applicator is cooling and feels nice but really does nothing special. It's cold and all it does is spread the cream around your skin. You still have to pat it in with your fingers for the cream to absorb. Something people don't think about when they think of cooling applicator is that the applicator is made out of metal. If you rub it on your skin long enough, it is no longer cooling. I will be honest and say I've only used this product for two days (applied 4 times--am and pm) but if my mind changes about it I will come and edit or write another review.
    It's ok..
    Love their Caffeine Cream so thought this was going to be even better. Loads comes out at the tiniest squeeze so be careful. I can't see any mega benefits, nor any brightening, but perhaps it's too soon to tell. All in all, a bit underwhelmed. I'll persevere and report back if I find any other results!
    Странная текстура
    Очень странная текстура - очень жидкая. И у крема странный аромат, какой-то технический. Был крем с кофеином от этой же марки и понравился гораздо больше. Very strange texture - very liquid. And the cream has a strange aroma, some kind of technical. There was a caffeinated cream from the same brand and liked much more.
    Feels lovely on the skin but can't say its made an improvement!
    A great AM eye cream
    This product is new to me and so far I’m enjoying it. I love the applicator as it really helps de-puff my eyes and for this reason I use this as my AM eye cream and use something else in the evening. I suffer from dark circles which are hereditary therefore no eye cream fully removes them but this does a great job at brightening the under eye diminishing the darkness especially given how cost effective it is.
    Loving it!
    Been using this product for more than a week now and I love how it instantly makes my eyes feel less tired. It hydrates and works well under makeup. My under eyes look brighter and more awake. Still waiting to see how the results are for long term use.
    The worst applicator design but good inside
    The applicator nozzle often squirts too much to surprise me when I use it . It really needs a lot of attention and skill to press it and this makes a bit trouble to me when I rush to work in the morning. Good inside but bad outside.
    This gorgeous Brighten-I Eye Cream absorbs quickly, isn't greasy! Keeps my eyes looking fresh and hydrated! I’m so obsessed with this eye cream that I’m definitely going to try more The Inkey List products!
    All I can say is wow. Wow, it gives my sleep deprived eyes such a boost. My eye area instantly looks brighter, calmer and hydrated. The applicator is such a dream, it's so calming and cool to the touch it really kicks some hydration back into my eye contours. It does have a really lovely illuminating effect that makes me look glowing, especially on no make up days but it's also great as an eye primer under makeup. I'm excited to see the long term benefits of the Brighten-l and see how effectively it improves dark circles. All in all, I can't get over how effective this clever little eye cream is and just how affordable it is.
    Instantly brightens!
    I was very excited to try this eye cream and when I got my hands on it I was not disappointed! Instantly brightens and illuminates my eye area, plus it leaves me nice and moisturised without making my make up slip. I look forward to hopefully seeing the long term brightening benefits too!
    Love this!
    This eye cream has worked wonders for me under my makeup! I apply it in the morning and love how it instantly blurs fine lines while also brightening my under eyes. I received this as a sample but will definitely repurchase! It's super moisturising too and the cool tip is a dream to apply!
