GOODBYE PUFFINESS // DARK CIRCLES



Puffy under eyes in the morning is my absolute pet peeve and there is nothing worse than applying concealer after concealer to try and get rid of them {not a cute look}. A few weeks ago I was with a girlfriend of mine and she was saying that she uses this product before applying her under eye concealer and absolutely swears by it. She also gets puffy eyes in the morning and has slight dark circles {like me}. She said, ever since she has been using this product she has seen a big difference. Of course, when I heard this from her I had to try it! I went to Sephora and got a sample of it and I have been using it now for about two and a half weeks and I must say, I ABSOLUTELY love this stuff and it definitely works.

It's the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer. Not only is it a primer but it also has a lot of other benefits to it as well.  It smooths the under eye area reducing the look of fine lines {yes, it's already creeping up on me, sigh}, puffiness and dark circles. It also has a brightening affect which diminishes my dark circles and when I apply it, it has a silky texture which keeps my under eyes hydrated. This product is also infused with anti-aging ingredients such as caffeine, peptides and optical diffusers.


Honestly, this stuff really diminishes my puffy eyes and dark circles in the morning and I really don't recall my concealer ever applying this nicely. A little does go a long way, so don't be fooled on how small this tube is. If you are like me and you wake up with puffy eyes and have slight dark circles and fine lines, than this stuff is for you!!

 I am so thankful that my girlfriend recommended me this product. This will ALWAYS be in my makeup collection.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day, xo!!
