Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm
Elemis just keep ‘em coming in this 25th anniversary year, don’t they? Rocketing straight to the top of our own eye-soothing, eye-smoothing charts is this illuminating balm, which can ‘lift’ the appearance of dark circles and shadows faster than you can say ‘Paul Daniels’.
With a blend that includes botanical extacts of bird of paradise flower, penstia powder, apricot kernel oil and a chamomile and arnica extract, It’s nourishing, refreshing, light-reflective, cooling – instantly, blissfully cooling, actually – but most of all we love the fact that it comes with a smooth metal ‘iron’ on the end for de-puffing. Just ‘iron’ around the eyes, and watch that fluid drain away…
We were doubtful about Elemis’s advice that it can be applied over make-up, but actually, it works just fine: the eye area’s re-illuminated (and you can just pat into skin, to blend seamlessly).
We excavated quite a collection of lip balms from the bottom of the handbag (do they breed in there?) to make room for this, and are just so pleased we did.
