August + Monroe Wake Up Call

Hello, bright eyes!

One of the biggest beauty problems for women in mid-life is tired-looking eyes.

I couldn’t agree more, as I have them too. 

August + Monroe’s Wake Up Call Brightening Eye Serum is a product I really like. It reduces my dark circles, lightens the redness under my eyes, and lessens my puffy under-eye skin. It helps my skin feel softer and more hydrated as well.

With its lightweight texture, this serum dries quickly and makes a solid, smooth base for under-eye concealer.

The patented metal applicator tip is shaped like a fingertip, so the product can be easily and gently massaged into the skin with a very soothing and cooling touch.

Made with clean, plant-based ingredients like coffee to brighten and aloe to smooth, this serum is also paraben-, sulfate-, and fragrance-free and it’s also vegan. 

A .47 fl oz (14 ml) tube is $52.
