Packed with powerful, skin-loving ingredients like 2% vitamin C and vegan lactic acid, Glo Skin Beauty’s Hydra-Bright Eye Cream is the definition of a multitasker. Not only does this product target pesky dark circles and dullness, it also protects the sensitive eye area from the harmful effects of blue light.
Let’s be honest: There’s nothing worse than trying to conceal your undereyes and being left with makeup that is cakey, flakey or pilling. But, imperfect undereyes are a thing of the past with Glo Skin Beauty’s Essential Eye Base.
