Sample Saturday: Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream: Review

Hello gentle readers.

Welcome to a new feature here on the old blog. Sample Saturday. As long as I have samples to try and natter about, I will try them and, each Saturday, natter about one.

Today I am going to natter about Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream. Benefit claims that this eye cream contains a peptide complex that is known to help restore elasticity and firmness to the skin. A hydrating blend of botanical extracts including apple extract, which helps boost collagen production, and loquat extract which helps to protect the skin from free radical damage. Further claims are that this eye cream fades dark circles and helps smooth fine lines for brighter, younger looker eyes. This eye cream is fragrance free.


This was a fairly generous sample. It lasted me five days, morning and evening use. Not bad, for a little paper and foil pack sample.

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream is very thick, upon first application it feels rich and emollient and moisturizing. It sinks swiftly into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and non greasy. My makeup went on over this eye cream smoothly and looked fresh and pretty.  Unfortunately, for me, personally, the moisturizing effect didn't last all day. After a few hours, my under eye area began to feel and look a bit parched and my fine lines were enhanced, rather than reduced or softened.

This eye cream had zero effect on my dark circles. I didn't expect it to do anything for them. It was, after all, just a sample. And, my dark circles are legen... wait for it.. dary and there is no way any eye cream, especially a sample is going to fade them.

Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream is a very nice product. I do believe that it was designed for younger, less dry skin types with fewer aging challenges that I presented to it. If you are younger, don't have as dry skin, the challenges my peepers present to an eye cream, Benefit It's Potent! Could be lovely skin care for you and I encourage you to give it a whirl.

Benefit It's Potent! is available in a one half ounce glass jar and retails for $34.00 and you can purchase it anywhere you can find Benefit products.

Have you tried Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream? Do you use it? What do you think of it? If not this what is your favorite eye cream? Please do tell.

Thank you so much for swinging by on your Saturday and reading my nattering on this week's sample and have a beautiful weekend.
