Review: Good Things Bright Eyes Eye Cream

Good Things is a range of skincare designed for younger skin, developed by beauty writer Alice Hart Davis - the products are light, simple, and effective, and utilise natural extracts.  They're also incredibly well priced - this Bright Eyes eye cream costs around £6, and promises to tackle dark circles and puffiness thanks to a new tri-peptide.

Packaged in a hygienic, functional squeezy tube, the cream has a light texture which spreads very easily over the skin.  I've found that a tiny dot is all that's needed to effectively moisturise the entire eye area - too much, and the cream takes longer to absorb and leaves a slightly whitish cast.  Either way, the cream sinks into the skin within a minute or so, and leaves the skin feeling well hydrated without any residue.

Dark circles are my main concern when it comes to my eyes - I probably don't get enough sleep, spend too much time sitting in front of a computer, and as a result I worry about the dark smudges in the inner corners of my eyes.

The photo on the left show my undereye area before use, and the right shows my undereye area after a month of using the Bright Eyes cream twice daily.  The dark smudges are still there, but look a little less blue comparatively.  The slight lines under the eye look a little less noticeable, and the undereye area looks more plumped up and well moisturised.  Even if the results are slight, I'm impressed that this £6 cream has managed to maintain results achieved with the significantly more expensive Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye cream.

Overall, I've been pleasantly surprised by the quality of this eye cream, particularly given it's very reasonable price.  I'd definitely repurchase, and if you're looking for a functional, non-spendy eye cream, I'd definitely recommend you gave this a try.  I think I'll be taking a look at the rest of the Good Things range next time I need skincare basics!

If you'd like to try this for yourself, you'll find it in store and online at Boots, where it will cost you £6.12.  Have you tried anything from the Good Things range?  What are your thoughts?  Let us know in the comments!

  1. I have been using a good things face mask once a week for about a month..its not a favourite of mine as it doesnt really seem to do much in the way of brightening or softening my skin. It looks like the eye cream has had a positive effect though and I do love that the products are paraban free so will defo be trying some others :) xxx

  2. i recently just purchased a load of their products including the eye cream so i am pleased that you have shown that works, will get back to you on the rest though :-)

  3. I've heard good things about this range, and for the price I think its pretty good that you can see a slight improvement. Thanks for sharing :) xxx

  4. I've got this eye cream and I really like it. I didn't expect it to do much for my 40 year old eye area but it does keep it well hydrated and without being greasy.

    I also like the nozzle as it stops you from using too much.
