CHANEL Blue Serum Eye: the Key to Combatting Dark Circles
Recently work has been hectic to say the least, and as a result my sleeping patterns have been all over the place. Some nights I'm in bed by 10 pm and other nights I'm sat at my desk working until 2 am. As a result, I started to develop two things I never thought I would suffer from. Dark circles and puffiness around my eyes.
Luckily Chanel came to the rescue and I was given the opportunity to test their brand new eye serum called Blue Serum Eye. This product combats dark circles, smoothes fine lines and moisturizes. Essentially it targets all of the skin concerns I started to experience, so I couldn't wait to put it to the test!
First thing's first. Why is this serum special and what differentiates it from other eye products?
Interestingly enough, the concept behind Chanel's Blue Serum line comes from the world's four blue zones: Nicoya in Costa Rica, Sardinia in Italy, Ikaria in Greece and Okinawa in Japan. In each of these regions, people live longer and are much healthier than anywhere else on Earth. Chanel drew inspiration from this and sourced three natural ingredients from the diets of the world's blue zones and included them in a line of products. These ingredients are:
- Costa Rican green coffee: Green coffee from Nicoya is known for its heightened anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Sardinian Olive tree oleoactive: This property is extremely rich in fatty acids and skin-fortifying polyphenols that help protect the skin.
- Greek Lentisk gum extract: Lentisk extract is rich in oleanolic acid and helps boost the skin's natural restorative abilities.
Now let's get into the important stuff. How did this product change my under eyes and did I see results?
After using this serum morning and night for three weeks, the dark circles under my eyes started to lighten in colour and the puffiness decreased significantly. I also noticed my under eyes became perfectly moisturized and instead of looking fatigued, they started to look bright and alert again. Any product that's able to combat dark circles, reduce puffiness AND improve the overall look of my eyes gets a big thumbs up from me!
Another great thing about this serum is the texture. It's lightweight and has a cooling effect that feels great on the skin. All you need is a quarter of a pump for both eyes so a little goes a really long way.
Lastly, I have to talk about the fragrance. Like many Chanel skin care products, this serum has a light, refreshing and slightly floral scent that reminds me of my favourite hand cream from the brand, La Crème Main. Side note: If you're on the hunt for an incredible hand cream that doesn't leave an oily residue on your skin, this one is great.
Chanel's Blue Serum Eye is great if you're looking to get rid of stubborn dark circles, smooth fine lines and moisturize at the same time. I've been using it for a little over a month now and it has completely transformed my eyes! To read more about Chanel's Blue Serum line, click here.
