I am a Skincare Goddess!! Yes, I cleansed…cleansed again…toned.. moisturized…and never skipped sunscreen. But.. here’s my honest confession is that I always would skip using any eye cream. And, I would end up with spending a significant amount of money and time desperately to cover my dark under-eye circles with concealer. But, my under eye area started aging. And, rubbing my regular moisturiser around the area didn’t count, as most aren’t formulated for the extra-thin, extra-precious skin surrounding the eyes.
At this point, I got my hands on an eye cream that has become my Holy grail product. It’s StBotanica Pure Refinance Under Eye Cream for dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and bags. Let’s dive into the review.
As the brand claims:
” StBotanica under eye cream is designed to address every single eye area concern possible including dark circles, eye bags, wrinkles, puffiness, loss of firmness, crow’s feet, fine lines.

This white coloured cream comes in a transparent plastic jar packed in a golden cardboard box, with a golden screw lid under which you can get a protective plastic lid. The packaging itself looks luxurious and you can get every important info on the packaging.
Banishing eye bags and wrinkles or whatever the aging sign starts with hydration, and hyaluronic acid is the hero. I use this as directed by the brand and use on my entire face and neck including eye area.
The cream is utterly weightless and refreshing to smell. It absorbs quickly without leaving any residue. And, I love its sweet yet mild smell that doesn’t irritate my hyper sensitive nose.
After using for almost a fortnight, I have seen that the cream has nourished my under eye area, strengthened the paper-thin skin around my eyes to make the skin firmer and wrinkles are noticeably reduced. The texture of the skin around my peepers looks plumped and quite impressive. It’s also super soothing before going to bed. And my under eye dark circles is surprisingly reducing. Do I need to say more?
I use this as my night nourishment cream too. As I apply it gives an instant glow that is quite interesting. It hydrates, moisturizes and provides perfect nourishment letting me wake up with a bright radiant skin.
I think you may find it expensive. But you can get at the lightning deal on Amazon. And, very little amount is needed. So it will go a long way.
