The serum is white and very light weight in texture, not at all heavy or sticky and has a pleasant smell. As you massage it in, perhaps part placebo but you can feel hydrating and de-puffing (technical term) effects. This has made a huge difference to the dark circles I suffer from, while working towards combating the signs of ageing. It applies and blends well without tugging at the delicate eye area. I think this would be suitable for people who have sensitive skin or contact wearers. Easily absorbed so it sits well under make up. It lasts longer than you would think and you only need a tiny bit, a pea sized amount will do the trick. I've only been using this for a matter of weeks but the results are amazing, it really brightens dark circles and delivers on what it promises.
I dab a healthy dose around my peepers at night and in the morning it leaves the skin around my eyes hydrated and makes my eyes look more refreshed. Thank you Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Recovery! Even if more often than not, I'm considering having my coffee administered through a drip and don't feel at all refreshed - wedding season is in full swing!
