Soap & Glory "You won't believe your eyes" Under Eye Moisture Serum

I got this under eye serum as part of a S&G Christmas gift set I purchased myself in the sales.  It came along side their Hot Cloth Cleanser and Bright Here Bright Now Instant Radiance Energy Balm ...which are both nearly ready to feature in my next empties post.
Reading about this product on the S&G website makes for some very interesting reading:

"You Won’t Believe Your Eyes mobilizes Live Yeast Cell Derivative (LYCD), an ingredient in that fashion model handbag standby – hemmorhoid cream – to help increase cell respiration and metabolism while combating inflammation to attack under-eye bags and bloat." 

But don't let this put you off, its a little gem!!  I don't always get a puffy under eye area but I do suffer dark circles and this has worked wonders!!  

The three ball roll on action is really massaging to the area, this really helps with the puffiness, as its nice and cold too!!  I roll it from the inside of the eye in an outwards direction and generally down to the top of the cheek bone, make sure I cover all that area which can generally be dark.
Not a great picture, sorry!
Again not a great picture!!  Roll on shown with formula squeezed to surface
The formula is a nice pearlescent colour to help with the brighting side of the job.  It isn't greasy and soaks in well.  The packaging claims it can be used over make up whenever needed though I personally have not tried this.
Pearlescent in colour upon initial application
I usually get the most use out of this in the morning in order to make sure I look like I've had a good night sleep.  I occasionally use it as part of my bed time routine if my circles are looking really grim!!

To purchase this individually it costs £10.50 from Boots.  I would put this on my repurchase list, though I think I would like to compare it to others in the future.
