Wearing specs all the time has 1 benefit- you don’t worry about dark eye circles because they’re covered by your glasses! But one thing I am worried about is potential wrinkles and crow’s feet ;( We’re always hearing about how sun protection is vital for keeping the lines at bay but there are SO few sunblocks for the eye around! So when I saw this Rodial under eye concealer which came with SPF at Harvey Nichols, I knew I had to get it!
In addition, it’s basically makeup and skincare it one. Besides SPF, it also has SYN-ake and hyaluronic acid to plump and smooth your skin. So that is already 3 ways it is better than your usual eye concealer- I couldn’t wait to use it and see if it really works!
Here’s what it looks like. The applicator is in the form of a brush, much like a lip gloss.
I’ve always been shy about going spec-less as I’m convinced my puffy, hooded, small eyes need to be saved by plastic surgery before they can be shared with the world 😛 However, for the sake of writing a decent beauty review, I’ve thickened my skin and you’ll be seeing not 1, but FOUR, photos of my “dead fish eyes” 😛
After cleansing, moisturising and sunblock. No Rodial BB Eye yet. Oh dear, maybe before plastic surgery I should clean up those brows…
After dabbing on some Rodial BB Eye but not smoothing it on
After smoothing the Rodial BB Eye on only the eye on the left- look at how much brighter it is compared to the one on the right!!
And now with Rodial BB Eye under both the left & right eyes- if you compare it with the photo above, you can see there’s a HUGE difference.
Best of all, the product applies on very smoothly, without feeling sticky. And it doesn’t cake or crease! In fact, 1 minute after applying it, it’s as though I have no product on my skin, even in the hot, humid weather of Bangkok. Definitely my favourite eye concealer ever!
So far, I’ve been very happy with all the Rodial products I’ve tried: their Stem Cell Superfood hand cream is one of my favourites! (review here)

Anything Rodial can do to improve?
Would be great if there was a manufacturing or expiry date on the box/ product 🙂 Also, would be nice not to contain parabens. Other than that, the product is perfect!
