It’s been a really long time, I know. After I got back from Phuket, I just felt so tired and I just want to be a couch potato. But I’m okay now; my spirit is lifted and I’m ready to blog again. In this post, I wanted to talk about an eye cream that I’ve been using for the past 2 months. It’s the Naruko ampm Dark Circle Diminishing Eye Complex. Naruko is a brand originally from Taiwan and there’s not much information that I can get from their website because it’s in Chinese and even though after I changed the language to English, there are some words that are still in Chinese. So, I’m sorry that I can’t provide you with more concrete information.

After cleansing and your skin care routine, squeeze out a dime-sized amount and use your fingertips to spread the eye serum evenly along the eye area. Gently tap the eye area in an upward direction until serum is fully absorbed.
The Dark Circle Diminishing Eye Complex can be used before eye makeup application.
What I like about it?
It comes in a small plastic tube that I find simple and really convenience. The price is also very affordable and it’s always available at Nattacosme. The smell is very light and not overpowering at all, almost like a smell of any body lotion.
How the product reacts on me?
I used to have really puffy eyes and after using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye cream, the texture of my under eyes area has improved so much but the only problem I had with that product is, it’s quite pricey.
I stumbled upon ampm Dark Circle Diminishing Eye Complex when I was browsing Nattecosme and I bought it without reading reviews, that’s very unusual of me to do something like that especially when I shop online.
ampm Dark Circle Diminishing Eye Complex has a thick cream consistency and it does take quite sometimes to absorb into the skin. You really have to massage the area gently before the product absorbs nicely.
This product does not have really visible effects on improving the fine lines under my eyes because I find it to be quite dry but I do think that it has enhance and cancel my dark circles quite effectively. If you have really prominent dark under eye, I’m not sure how this product will help you because I don’t really have that much dark circle to start with.
Last week when I went to a makeup class, the makeup artist did compliment me about my under eyes area. According to her, my under eye area looks good for women in early 30’s. So, I guess the eye cream did improved the texture and looks of my under eye. I think it must be because of the active ingredients in the eye cream; Q10 and hyaluronic acid.
Overall, I’m quite impressed with product but I will not repurchase because I find it to be quite dry. Under eye cream is essential for everybody and it’s a must in everyone’s skin care. There’s no point of your skin looks younger but your under eye area looks so much older than you are. So, if you haven’t included eye cream in your skin care regime, now is the time. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
