Anyone else have trouble sleeping at night? Try as I might to adopt quality nighttime habits to unwind from the day, I still often find myself awake at 3 am willing myself to sleep and listening to a series of guided meditations on my beloved Calm app to quiet my mind.
Sleep deprivation is a nagging problem we all face in one form or another. And it definitely makes for some awfully unhappy eyes in the morning! To nurture them, I’m always on the lookout for new products that will give my tired eyes the much needed love they deserve and products that are hydrating seem to be especially worth their weight in gold.
Enter the By Terry Hyaluronic Concealer
When the By Terry Hyaluronic concealer launched earlier this year I was immediately intrigued. Other than their iconic Ombre Black Star shadow sticks and the Paris Mon Amour eyeshadow palette, my makeup collection was sparse on By Terry products but the idea of a concealer that’s loaded with moisture was music to my ears. Multi-functional products are a time saver and when adding skincare into makeup — it helps give me peace of mind that my skin is getting what it needs throughout the day.
I picked up the Hyaluronic hydra concealer in a spring beauty haul from FeelUnique in hopes it would be the miracle my tired eyes needed after a late night. And after MANY, I’m back with a full report on how well it performs on my often tired, tired eyes.
The By Terry Hyaluronic Concealer
Okay, let’s break it down! The By Terry Hyaluronic concealer is formulated with hyaluronic acid ( of course) to nourish and moisturize the skin while also providing buildable coverage.
It’s currently offered in six shades, priced at $42 and available for purchase from:
Satin Creamy Texture
The concealer has a creamy texture and a satin finish that blends nicely while disguising dark circles, reducing redness and plumping the skin.
Why Hyaluronic Acid?
In case you’re not familiar, hyaluronic acid is a supreme skincare ingredient and one I turn to both in my morning and nighttime routine. It’s been proven in many studies to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles — which of course is a nice perk.
It also has powerful moisturizing properties that gives your skin a break. Throughout the day, your skin cells work overtime to stay hydrated. When you incorporate hyaluronic acid into your morning routine, you give skin the moisture it craves. This means, rather than working to pull moisture from the atmosphere your skin can use its time more wisely and generate new skin cells that improve the overall health and suppleness of your complexion.
Horse Chestnut Extract
There’s another key ingredient in the By Terry Hyaluronic concealer that I had not heard of before! The formula includes horse chestnut seed extract to naturally stimulate your circulation. This is what helps create the brightening effect on dark circles as well as helps even skin tone around the face.
A Convenient Time Saver
On days were I’m running on little sleep, I like to give my undereyes some extra TLC in the mornings so I don’t look completely like the walking dead all day long. I follow a multi-step process, starting with the Dermologica Stress Relief pen, followed by The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid, a standard concealer and then a brightening concealer.
Because the By Terry Hyaluronic concealer is loaded with skincare and brightening ingredients, it effectively saves me quite a lot of time in the morning by rounding those 4 steps into one.
Wears All Day Long
I was super impressed by how long this concealer lasts through the day – especially on tired eyes. Where I’d normally need to look at touching my concealer and powder in the late afternoon/early evening, this concealer held strong. A little goes a long way, too!
Refreshes Tired Eyes like a Dream
According to my FitBit, I average between 4 to 5 hours of sleep a night — sometimes less. So to say I often need help looking refreshed in the morning would be an understatement! Fortunately, By Terry comes to the rescue with a concealer that does everything I need it to to revive my complexion. It’s like a triple shot espresso for the eyes and a true life saver.
