I had been away for a very long time, was immersed in a lot of personal responsibilities. The weather is quite unpredictable here now in Kerala, heavy rains have given way to scorching and blazing heat. So I am back after the long gap to start writing with a fresh mind. Today I am here to review an eye cream from Tarte cosmetics, my first ever eye cream, so lets see whether it worked well for me or not. I have just entered the forte of using eye creams religiously and lets see whether the product impressed me enough to use eye creams as a daily part of my skin care routine.

My take on Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment
This is my first eye cream and I was really looking forward to using this from Tarte. After hearing all rave reviews about this eye cream fromdifferent beauty sites, I never thought twice before buying it. The product comes in a cute purple glass pot with a wooden-finish screw cap, a very beautiful, classy and elegant packing. The pot is very compact and easy tocarry around, except for the fact that it is a glass jar. It comes with an outer cover which is safe to carry around.
The cream inside is a pale yellowish shade which is thick and smooth in nature. A tiny amount is only needed to cover your entire eye area. I was instantly drawn towards the brightening and firming claims made by thebrand. I don’t have any dark circles as per on my eyes but do have a slight shadow in the inner corner of my eyes, so really wanted to see whether it would make a difference It spreads easily and absorbs quickly when theright amount is taken. But tends to give an oily, greasy look when used in excess quantity. I usually apply this at night on a clean dry eye area with my ring fingers and it instantly gives hydration and moisturizes the eye area considerably. It does not irritate your eyes in any manner.It has alight citrusy scent which is not very overpowering.
I have been using the cream for past 3 months and have not felt much difference since using the product. It has considerably reduced the dryness around my eye area and is pretty smooth and supple now. But other than that I did not find any major difference to my eyes. There was no brightening effect when I got up in the morning just my usual eyes. I still get puffy eyes when I wake up in the morning. I also have light fine lines, though not very visible, its present and there was no visible changes on them as well. Overall, the cream makes your eye area soft and smooth and helps in preventing further dryness.

Cons of Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment
- The cream is a bit on the heavy side, so very little quantity is needed otherwise it tends to make your eyes feel heavy and sleepy.
- There was no brightening effect on the eyes even after 3 months of use.
- I did not find any sort of firming effect as per their claims which was very disappointing from such a reputed brand.
- The cream tends to make your eyes watery if little excess quantity is used.
2.8/5. I would not recommend this eye cream for those suffering from severe or even moderate dark circles. It is just a cream to hydrate your eye area, nothing more. I think there are more affordable eye creams available that do a better job at treating your under eye area.
Would I repurchase Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment?
No, absolutely not. I would defenitely try out other eye creams that is
