To be precise Banana Bright Eye Creme
Although I don’t know Ole Henriksen, I found a positive Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme Review on Facebook. It boasted amazing before and after results and claimed it was a Women’s Health 2018 Beauty Award Winner. I bought the product immediately without reading any reviews. It was $39 for a tiny jar and the brand isn’t available in my area. I also know that eye creams are a big scam in the beauty industry. (In case anyone is wondering, eye creams can be used as moisturizers.
First, what Ole Henriksen Banana Brilliant Eye Creme is?
This eye cream is brightening and rich in vitamin C. It targets the signs of aging by reducing dark circles, concealer application, and wear. It has special pigments that instantly brighten the eyes and correct color.
Let’s begin with what I don’t like
Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright Eye Cream has a strong citrus smell that almost reminds me of a cheap perfume. It is a strong citrus scent that makes me a little discouraged when I use it. This is especially true for my “red days”, which are the times my body is sensitive, including my senses of smell.
The protective plastic cover inside the jar helps to keep the product from contaminating the cap. However, it is so difficult to lift! The “pull tab” is missing. It’s not a big deal, but it can be very important. JeffreeStar mentioned when decided to place a pull tab on his setting products.
What I Love
It is very soft and pleasant to the touch. It is light and doesn’t feel sticky. It blends well under my eyes, making it brighter and easier to apply concealer. It helps to prevent my concealer smudging.
I don’t like
Although it does not instantly brighten my undereyes like a real Banana Powder, it is noticeable. Although I wasn’t expecting it to, the misguided reviews made it seem like it did. Although it does instantly brighten, there is only a slight difference. It will still require concealer or banana powder.
Reviews say that it brightened their dark undereyes with continued use. There are many reasons we may have dark undereyes. These include lack of sleep, excessive rubbing, and health issues like anemia. No eye cream can promise to remove dark circles. However, the Ole Henriksen Bright Eye Cream was used religiously for more than a month. I didn’t notice any improvement in my skin when compared to Purito Centrella Green Level Eye cream. It also gave me mila, aka milk spots. It seems that I am not the only one who has read Makeupalley reviews.
It is rich in collagen, which can be used as a topical moisturizer. Vitamin C also absorbs the harmful UV rays of the daytime and protects skin from them. Too much sun exposure can also cause dark circles, so Vitamin C helps to reduce it.
CONCLUSIONI don’t love Ole Henriksen Bright Eye Creme but I don’t hate it. It’s not something I use at night, but it is used every morning before I apply my sunscreen, even during self-quarantine. It makes me look healthier in Zoom meetings. Will I purchase it again? Definitely, no.
