Welcome to ‘Til The Last Drop: a bi-monthly column in which I, CF Beauty Editor, Olivia Bennett, share my review of a favourite cult product that I (truly) use to the last drop. This week’s featured product is Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Crème.
I’m messaged by friends and family, at all hours of the day, with recommendation requests for everything from “the budget gel moisturiser that works with combination skin” to “the hard-hitting eye cream that will make Botox a last resort”, and queries on “whether X, Y, and Z from the current trending brand are REALLY worth the hype”.
Such incessant inquiries sparked this column, where I’ll cover best-selling names alongside under-the-radar brands to note. You’ll hear about blow-the-budget products that live up to their hefty price tag and the purse-friendly steals which I unashamedly turn to time and again.
No need to text me, I’ll be sharing all my intel with you right here every other week. Tune in.
There are a multitude of uses for an eye cream. Do you want it to de-puff? Banish dark circles? Hydrate? Fight against wrinkles? Colour correct? The most fastidious formulas do all of the above, which is why the Banana Bright Eye Crème is an integral part of my morning routine. Inspired by the secret weapon used by many a make-up artist – ‘banana powder’ – this yellow-pigmented wonder product instantly colour corrects and brightens under eyes for a wide-awake look, even if you didn’t get your full eight hours of sleep. Brimming with vitamin C and collagen the crème instantly hydrates, firms, and plumps, and is also a brilliant preventative elixir to keep my eyes looking youthful. The formula is springy and absorbs to a velvety finish, making it the flawless canvas for your concealer.
