I am a long-time dark circle sufferer, and I have tried what feels like every concealer, under-eye highlighter and illuminator with little success. So, I'm trying something new — treatment. First stop: Liz Earle's Daily Eye Repair.

This triple-action cream reduces the appearance of fine lines, brightens dark under-eye shadows, and boasts SPF 10. Charming, but will it do anything to beat the shadows? Amazingly, it does! This powerful little cream worked away at those pesky dark circles whilst lightening and brightening them, putting a smile on my face.

Even though I am over the moon with my Liz Earle Daily Eye Repair, I won't know its true power until I enter it into competition, hence my purchase of Clinique's All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage.

The small roll claims to refresh and hydrate puffy eyes while brightening the eye area and combating dark circles. Although I love this product, its lightening powers fall short of those of Liz Earle's eye cream. Rather, I pop the Clinique onto my eyes if I'm feeling tired, or if my eyes are itching. The cooling sensation instantly lifts the eye area, and the serum helps to calm down allergy-induced puffiness and my relentless eye rubbing.

Teamed together, the Clinique eye serum and Liz Earle eye repair ensured that the focus on my face is no longer my dark circles!
