These days, I’m having a really hard time keeping my eyes open – I’m not sure if it’s cos of the influx of year-end events, or perhaps it’s really age catching up with me. In any case, I’m trying to hide all signs of fatigue with makeup, and of course, the quintessential eye care products.
The Look: This comes in the usual belif tub – sturdy, practical and handy. I love how the cap looks like a top hat. It’s also pretty much similar to the entire Peat Miracle range.
It’s a considerably larger tub of eye cream versus some others – this is 25ml while the other eye creams are normally of smaller quantity. This is one eye cream that’s gonna last you a while.
The Scent: It has the typical belif scent – herbal and refreshing and yet soothing.
The Texture: It’s a rather thick consistency which surprisingly, is really quickly absorbed and leaves barely any residue. There’s no greasiness nor stickiness on the skin once you pat / massage it in (and you don’t even have to take a long time to do that). You can apply makeup right over it and it won’t slide off (tried and tested during my belif facial)
The Effect: There’s a very very slight tingly-refreshing sensation once you apply it – kinda like your skin being awakened with a dose of vitamin.
The skin feels significantly bouncier and softer.
Now it’s been said that to avoid millia seed, you should go for products that are gel-based, but even though this is clearly a cream, I’m so glad it didn’t add to the existing number of millia seeds under my eyes. Phew.
It hasn’t done anything much to improve the dark eye circles (again, I must reiterate that those are mostly caused by your lifestyle and body – those with sinus problems will have severe dark eye circles because of congestion, while late nights are a sure-win method of getting the darkest of eye circles).
It has improved the texture of the skin under the eye though – as I mentioned earlier, it’s softer (but without compromising on firmness).
I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it’s helped to reduce the appearance of fine lines, but at least no new ones have appeared, and the existing ones haven’t deepened.
Overall: This is a pretty decent eye cream – besides its quick absorption powers and refreshing sensation, I particularly like its scent which serves as aromatherapy. What’s more, it’s total bang for your buck – yes it may not be the cheapest at $71, but I am pretty sure it will last you for 9-12 months at the very least, so that’s your entire year’s supply settled 😀
