The Little Bottle That Makes A BIG Impact: Ren Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift

For as long as I can remember I've been tackling dark circles and puffiness around my eyes. During my teenage years that involved a whole lot of concealer, progressing to lightweight creams and a touch of the iconic Touche Eclat in my twenties. My thirties, however, have seen a plethora of new problems pop up that only a colour correction palette, an electronic eye massager and a lot of skincare can tackle. I go through eye creams quicker than anything else - and not just because of their comparatively small size! I'm always looking for the next big thing or the product that will solve all of my under-eye dilemmas, but the majority fall short at offering anything more than a temporary moisture boost. This little bottle is a total game changer though, having been a firm favourite since I first started using it at the beginning of the year; REN have cleverly capitalised on their best selling 'Instant Firming Beauty Shot' facial serum with the launch of this new 'Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift' - and it's AH-MAZIN.

This light gel-like serum instantly lifts and dramatically brightens the delicate eye area, while visibly diminishing both dark circles and puffiness within the space of a few minutes. While many eye creams just hydrate or help to perk up the under-eye area, this creates a tightening effect that leaves me feeling wide awake - even when I awake more tired than when I went to sleep. It’s hard to describe the sensation (it’s not tingling or numbing, but definitely leaves skin feeling perky,) but it’s one I’ve become a little bit addicted to over the last few weeks. I've used this throughout my mini break to New York and a recent trip to Brussels, both of which involved incredibly early starts and overnight travel; it really did make a huge difference to both the appearance of those dreaded bags, and the way I was feeling too. The great things about the Beauty Shot Eye Lift is that it can be used under or over makeup, meaning it's the perfect handbag or in-flight essential that will leave you feeling refreshed as soon as you need it.

If you’re interested in the science bit, then a unique Glycine Betaine complex improves the eye contour, while Hyaluronans from Yeast Biofermentation instantly firm, lift and smooth lines; Phycocolloids from Microalga plump and keep skin hydrated and comfortable, making this a hardworking formula that nourishes instantly and over time. Put simply, the science geeks over at REN have spent the last couple of years experimenting and perfecting a formula that really does improve the appearance of all those little niggles - while offering an instant brightening effect, thanks to the pearlescent fragments that help to reflect the light. I've been recommending this left, right and centre since I started using it, and I'm thrilled to see so many others loving the effect as much as me; this is so effective and so addictive, that they should practically be giving these out to every single person as soon as they hit the big 3-0. It may look like a teeny understated bottle, but within it there's a formula waiting to make a big impact.

The Ren Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift is available now, priced £28.00.

  9. Really interested in buying this having read your review, though just to let you know the link provided takes you to the wrong Ren eye product. The eye shot costs £30 xxx

    1. If you're clicking on the first link then that takes you to the first face product which I'm talking about. The second is the new one!

  10. So many people struggle with under the eye puffiness! This product sounds like it would fit the needs of those people and actually show results :)
