Beauty Monday: Neutrogena Rapid Dark Circle Repair

Neutrogena Rapid Dark Circle Repair

Disclosure Statement

I get puffy under my eyes.  I get dark circles under my eyes. They are there most of the time no matter how good I feel or how much sleep I was able to achieve.  

I hide them pretty well with makeup, so when I go out you just don’t see them.  But, they are there lurking.  

Which is why I was pretty thrilled when I chosen to review Neutrogena Rapid Dark Circle Repair eye cream from Crowdtap.  Anything that I could try to do to get rid of my under eye issues; would be great.

Neutrogena Rapid Dark Circle Repair

The Neutrogena Rapid Dark Circle Repair eye cream is supposed to visibly reduce the look of dark circles in just one week.  Formulated with Neutrogena’s exclusive accelerated brightening complex.  It helps diffuse the look of dark circles while light-reflecting mineral brighten the eyes.  

The results are said to be fast.

To start using just twist the bottom of the package until product appears on the brush. Apply to the eye area.  Works well alone or under makeup.  I couldn’t figure out if I was supposed to do it twice a day, once in the morning and once at night or just once during a normal day.  

My results weren’t great.  I am not saying it doesn’t work, but to me I didn’t see any difference.  I did like the way the product felt under my eyes and it was super easy to use.  It blended in well and you didn’t even know I had applied it.  

I may have noticed a slight less puffy under eye, but since that isn’t something that is claimed on this product, I can’t say that it did it.  In fact, the dark circles almost looked worse in the after picture than the before.  

Neutrogena Rapid Dark Circle Repair - Results

What do you think?  I could have had a slightly different angle, but I tried to use the same light and area I took the before picture in.  

My results were a full week.  I started last Sunday, the 4th of January and took the before picture.  I took the after picture this past Sunday (yesterday), the 11th of January.  

I am not really impressed myself, but like I said I am not saying it doesn’t work, it just hasn’t for me yet.

    I haven’t tried this Neutrogena product. But I have some of the other Rapid products from Neutrogena and I like them a lot.

    • I was thinking of trying some of the rest of the line, so I am glad you are using it and like it. Might look in to it a bit more now!

    hmmm… I have such a hard time believing in these products. I’ve just been trying to remember to put a little bit of Coconut oil (not the cause of my eye issue today, pretty sure it’s a new mascara… straight to the trash with it I guess). But yeah, under eyes is definitely a place of concern. I read another article the other day about DIY helpers but haven’t tried any yet.

    • Yea I have to admit I haven’t tried anything really to get rid of them. I just hide them right now lol
