[Review] Nip + Fab Dark Circle Fix

I have been using the Simple 'Kind to Eyes Soothing Balm' for nearly 2 years now and although it keeps my under eyes moisturized, it does absolutely nothing for my dark circles. 
I tried to look for a fairly inexpensive eye serum. I remember reading in a magazine that eye serums are better to use at night-time because it is lighter opposed to eye creams, which is heavier so sinks into your skin and can make your eyes more puffy. I say serum but came across Nip + Fab's Dark Circle Fix, to be honest it had mixed reviews so I took a gamble. I bought my one from Look Fantastic for £15.95.

The back of the tube reads:
"A 3-in-1 formula that reduces the appearance of puffiness, dark circles + premature ageing. Fast acting formula. 

Dark Circle Fix contains:
  • Red Algae targets dark circles
  • Tetra Peptide reduces the look of puffiness
  • Shea Butter hydrates + softens"

Pump bottle.

The consistency is more of a gel than a cream.

I used this for 2 days 2 nights only and I had to revert back to my Simple Eye Balm because this product was not moisturizing at all, so much so that it left my under-eyes with dry patches! Needless to say I will not be purchasing this product again. I did like the pump bottle, it was easy to use and to control the amount used. Also the consistency is really light, evidently too light for me but this is just my skin's reaction.
