gamechanger.

Let me tell you a little story: On Saturday night, I stayed up until 4:30am chatting with my girlfriends, slumber party style. On Sunday morning, our bodies still woke us up at our normal weekday time. {What happened to being able to sleep past 10:00am, college-style?} I made the three-hour drive home later that day and faced a mountain of work before I could hit the pillow again. Suffice it to say, Monday morning was brutal too. The only thing which made me look like I hadn't been hit by a truck after those late nights?
This magically wonderful product, otherwise known as Clarins Eye Contour Gel.


I don't generally like to do product posts, but I couldn't hold out on you all any longer. I first purchased the eye contour gel in October 2011. I was skeptical to pay the $35, but I listened to the woman at the Clarins counter. She told me this product would be a gamechanger, but I didn't believe her. 16 months and two tubes later, it is the one beauty product which makes my day infinitely better. After a late night or an early morning, a little bit of this on your undereyes will feel a.m.a.z.i.n.g. 

I have super sensitive skin around my eyes and wear contacts, so I was worried this product might cause me problems--but it doesn't at all. Not only does it help with puffiness, it helps my eye make-up stay on so much better. Thanks to the genes from my dear old dad, I have some serious dark circles. The Clarins Eye Contour Gel definitely helps hide them. Since I know {cv} doesn't hop on my blog frequently, I can also tell you that even he likes using this stuff. I always feel ready to embrace the day after a few drops of this goodness. I will now happily spend the $35 to replace it.

Do you have a game-changing beauty product in your arsenal? 
Help a girl out! I can't wait to see what you've got in your bag of tricks! xoxo {av}

  1. Thank you SO much for posting about this. I too have dark circles (they are made worse by the shadow from my glasses) and I'm ALWAYS on the hunt for good eye products. Will have to check this out. Thanks for your honest feedback!!

    My game changer is Guerlain Rejuvenatung Illuminator. I use it as a concealer and it works wonders.

  4. Imma have to find this...I was just thinking yesterday morning that I need something to counter too many late nights in front of the computer.

    Does finding a good red lipstick count as a gamechanger? If so, mine was L'Oreal Infallible in Beyonce Red.

  5. OMG, I've been using this for over 10 years, since my first job! My boss swore by it and got me hooked. Such a good product.

  6. I need to try this one! I just bought a tube of the NARS replenishing eye cream (more like a gel) and I really love it! I don't know if I would call it gamechanger, though. My recent "can't live without" are the Perricone MD vitamins - I got the Omega 3 & Skin/Total Body set. I swear I have more energy, feel more alert, my skin looks soft and supple, and my hair is shiny. They are an investment, but goodness, they're worth it.

  8. I didn´t know this eye cream. I am usually ALL over eye creams and hand creams. I found Benefit´s It´s potent I cream last year and I am hooked ever since! Love it so much. I luckily don´t have to deal with dark under eye circles but with a little puffiness here and there and this was my game changer :)

    Now I just have to find the perfect face wash and moisturizer and I am all set. Also a lot of bloggers rave about the Clarisonic skincare brush.....

  13. I got a super hydrating gel from Clarins at the beginning of the winter and it is AMAZING! Is one of those products that you can tell they work right away. It's super impressive, a game changer just as you say this one is, which know that I read your review, and based on how good the gel I have is, I'm going to consider getting it ;)
