Hope you're all well and enjoying the weekend!
Today's post is going to be a review about a product I can't recommend enough, and it's the truly amazing Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream.
This is the second jar of this product that I'm on. I bought a pot of these last year and it lasted me about 9 months. After I'd used it up I tried various other eye creams but none of them were as good as the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream which is why I decided to go back to it, in spite of the £29.00 price tag.
Here's what Bobbi Brown have to say about one of their best selling products:
"This quick-absorbing eye cream delivers naturally-occurring humectants that melt into the skin, leaving the eye area soft, smooth and refreshed for up to 24 hours. A perfect level of emollients imparts a lightweight texture, allowing concealer to glide on evenly."
As you can see, Bobbi Brown aren't making any extraordinary claims about this product, promising you the moon and the stars if you use it. I am always a little bit sceptical when a product sounds too good to be true. Anything that promises to make you look like an airbrushed Kate Moss is probably just clever marketing at best.
The Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream however does exactly what it says: It hydrates your delicate eye area.
Make up applies much better onto hydrated skin. Imagine you were applying foundation onto dry skin. That wouldn't look as good as if you'd applied it to skin that was properly moisturised, correct? Well, the same principle goes for your eyes. Eyeshadows and concealers are far more likely to sit in the fine lines around your eyes if that area is dry and has not been looked after properly.
Now lets talk about why I love the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream so much:
When I was using this product, the dark circles on my eyes were still there, but they weren't as bad as they'd been before. When I stopped using Bobbi Brown's eye cream, my dark circles got worse again, even though I was getting the exact same amount of sleep as before, and that's the main reason why I repurchased this product.
I also love the smell and consistency of the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream. I've tried various other eye creams, and they are either too thick or the smell of them is far too strong. I really don't want to be putting anything that has any kind of noticeable scent around my eye as that can irritate them an make my eyes appear red and puffy.
The Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream is really gentle on the eyes and melts beautifully into into your eye area. It provides 24 hour hydration, but I like using this both mornings before I apply my make up and evenings before I got to bed.
I think it's really important to look after your eye area as this can help in reducing the appearance of fine lines and the dreaded crows feet. And if you are younger, hopefully it will prevent you from developing them in the first place!
The last thing I'd like to mention is the packaging of the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream. It comes in a really cute little plastic jar (even though it looks more like glass). I've kept the jar of my old eye cream and I'm using it to decant other products into it. This little jar is really pretty and I thought it would be a waste to throw it out, so I am using it to put other products into it that don't have as nice packaging as the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream.
I hope you've enjoyed reading this post. I'd love to know what your favourite eye cream is, so let me know in the comments below!
Till next time.
