kiehls line reducing eye brightening concentrate review

There are many under-eye products out there, most claiming to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. However, it has been pretty challenging to find an under-eye treatment that is designed to combat dark circles.

When I heard of Kiehl’s Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate, I knew I had to try it. I am a huge fan of Kiehl’s and their breakthrough skincare lines, and given the number of late nights I’ve been having these past few weeks, I thought it would be the perfect time to put this product up for trial.

Balanced Guru is a brand new beauty brand to the UAE market, and has only just launched here this month.

I’ve become a little obsessed with the Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Frankincense skincare range. I love frankincense, the scent takes me back to Christmas and skincare specialists have been raving about the miracles it is capable of on dry, maturing skin.

And what’s not to love about the very English Neal’s Yard Remedies? Created in the very scenic Covent Garden in central London, the brand has held its stance against the synthetic chemical approach to beauty since its beginnings in 1981.

I have been using a few of the products from their Frankincense range. You might have read my review on their Frankincense Hydrating Mist here. Today we’re looking at the Neal’s Yard Remedies Rejuvenating Frankincense Eye & Lip Serum.
