So I picked up this eye cream during The Body Shop’s Earth Day sale, along with a bunch of other things and thought I should give it a shot. Now, I’m not an avid eye cream user because I don’t think I’m at that point where I need to be regularly using eye creams. However, when I do get there I’ll pick up a more high-end eye cream to fight fine lines and wrinkles and all that good stuff. So this eye cream is a good place to start I guess. It retails for $18 and comes in a little tube. However, a tiny dot is all you need so I think that this will last a while.
One of the reasons why I picked this up is because it’s part of the Vitamin E line, which I love because of how moisturizing and amazing it is for your skin. It’s marketed as helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. It doesn’t make any other tall claims like “X amount of women see improvement after X weeks” or whatever some eye creams do, so I don’t expect it to be that holy grail eye cream. And it isn’t. What it is, is a nice moisturizing cream for your under-eyes and outer corners. It does a great job of moisturizing and keeping the area soft and hydrated, which is important because our under-eyes are one of the driest parts of our face.
So overall, it’s nothing amazing and OMG but it does do the job. The main selling point of this eye cream is that it’s very hydrating and contains shea butter and rose hip oil to pack in the moisture. By keeping the area moisturized, the appearance of fine lines and puffiness are reduced and the aging process is slowed down a bit. This is a good starter eye cream for someone who’s in their early 20s or even late teens, but not for someone who actually wants to or is battling the aging process.
