I am not one for eye cream. I remember from my Virgin Vie days, that we were shown a video of eye cream that had absorbed only just under the first layers of the skin. It was just sitting in the eye bag. It was gross and it really put me off! But there comes a time when you get a bit older and you perhaps don’t look after yourself as well as you should and your eyes need a bit of help.
I tried this in the winter, over the holiday season. Lots of late nights, alcohol and bad foods.
The Blurb: The ultimate anti – oxidant dose to reduce and prevent the appearance of fine lines, leaving the eye area smooth and firm. Our unique rich combination of omega fatty acids aid cell regeneration and proliferation. Formulated with anti-inflammatory soothing botanical extracts to relieve sore, irritated eyes and to protect the skin from environmental stress. Fragrance free to be suitable on even the most sensitive eyes. Remember your eyes do not need it to smell nice! In fact fragrance should be avoided on such a delicate area.
Ingredients thoughts: At first look I did wonder if I had made a mistake in purchasing this. 23 ingredients I thought is rather a lot to put on the sensitive thin skin of the eye.
On closer look there is no ingredient listed that has an EWG score over a 1 or nothing I cannot pronounce. As it is a water based emulsion it does have a preservative but nothing too scary.
It is 90% Organic which is really good and I did feel there was no ingredient included that did no have a job to do.
Packaging – Glass bottle with pump. Small and easy to hold and use. A light but heavyweight glass. Plastic pump. Packaged in a box, which rightly or wrongly you would expect for the price.
My only issue with the packaging was that the pump could not deliver the last few weeks of cream. I had 2 weeks where I used a cotton bud to get the remainder out of the bottle to use.
Pinks Boutique are aware of this issue but say that the alternative is a glass jar which is unsanitary or packaging that is not as environmentally friendly as this one.

My Review: A light cream, easy to get too much out of the pump , which I did a few times until I got the hang of depressing the pump slightly. Easy to spread around your eye socket with no dragging of the skin. I felt that the cream fully absorbedas eyes did not feel heavy afterwards. Skin around eyes felt cool, smooth and soft. Puffiness and redness were reduced and I felt you could definitely see a difference when I ran out.
I cannot comment about a reduction in eye wrinkles as I don’t have any! (Dont hate me, I have different skin issues!)
It lasted me just under 3 months, with the last few weeks applying with a cotton bud as the pump no longer reached the cream.
I liked this cream, I liked what it did for my eyes ans skin. It is definately one to try. I cannot compare to any others as I have not used any!
For me I would use it again as I felt it did work ,but saying that my next eye cream to try is oil based and has less ingredients in, so I will see how thay compare.
What I like: I like that it had no fragrance, what eyes need fragrance?
What I did not like: The pump not working for the last 2 weeks.
*This eye cream was paid for by myself and as always I have written an honest review.
