Review by Ceri Wheeldon
For various reasons I have struggled to sleep for more than a couple of hours a night lately – and as a result I have industrial strength black circles and have been resembling a human panda. But would Time Bomb Black Ops Dark Circle Rescue actually help?
Time Bomb Black Ops Dark Circle Rescue is described as ‘ it is a treatment clinically proven to reduce eye area darkness with regular use. It does contain skin-boosting Omega 3 fatty acids and light diffusing particles that make eyes look instantly brighter, wider and refreshed.’
Does it work?
IN A 28-DAY CLINICALLY-BASED CONSUMER TRIAL: • 84% saw improvement in skin texture under and around eyes • 72% saw improvement in the darkness in the corner of their eyes and overall brightening in the eye area • 68% saw improvement in darkness under eyes, less tired appearance and less discoloration
Applied morning and evening by tapping into the under eye area -including the inner corner where the darkness is more apparent, I started to see a difference after about a week. I liked the fact that it came in an easy to use tube with an angled end for easy application.
Did it erase my circles completely? No, but there is a vast improvement – and my concealer is able to do the rest so that I can at least face the world without people asking if I’m feeling OK! If was also very soothing when applied.
How it works:
The active ingredients include Quinoa Seed Extract to help fortify capillaries, Vitamin B3 to promote blood and lymphatic flow, Horse Chestnut extract to help reduce capillary swelling, chia oil to help add ‘cushioning to the thin, fragile skin around the eye area and caffeine to help skin look brighter.
Would I recommend?
Absolutely. But it’s not cheap at £36 (available from TimeBombCo – but look out for special offers on QVC.
