We must be psychic because in today's New York Times, there's an entire article dedicated to the never-ending quest to get rid of dark circles. But SheFinds ventured into this territory almost a month ago, discussing the benefits (and the hefty pricetag) of Shiseido's White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment versus that of Clinique's more wallet-friendly Advanced Stop Signs Cream. Take a look below at our reader question, and what SheFinds reported on the topic:
SheFinds Reader Question: I love Shiseido's new White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment, but at $100 for a tiny bottle, it's a strain on my pocketbook. Is there a less expensive anti-dark circle cream that actually works?
Apparently quite a few people have wondered the same thing–the web's awash with compliments on Shiseido's effectiveness, and complaints about its price. Everyone agrees that the moisturizing, whitening cream does a number on those nasty dark circles (we couldn't wait to write about how Shiseido made us look ten years younger back when the product hit shelves in March), while protecting against wrinkles as well. But .54 ounces for $100? We can see how that might put a few people off. A more budget-friendly option is Clinique's Advanced Stop Signs Eye ($32.50 for .5 oz), which promises–and delivers–to smooth skin and even-out color, at almost half the cost. Now you can keep your face bright and your wallet right!
