Hello! For the past few weeks I have been trying out a new eye cream. I have been really impressed with Aveeno Products lately, so I picked up their Positively Ageless lifting and firming Eye Cream. I am almost out of my Bare Mineral one, so I thought I would try out a drugstore one.
I got this at walmart for around $19. This is kind of pricey for a drugstore eye cream, but the Bare Minerals one is $32 I think.
I really love the packaging it comes in, it's super little and cute. I like how it has a pump, so you don't have to dip your finger into it.
This is about what comes in from one full pump. It's a lot of product, so I try to do small pumps so I don't get too much. This is kind of like a mix between a lotion and gel.
What this eye cream claims to do-
"This moisturizing eye cream contains natural shiitake complex, a clinically proven antioxidant that works with the skins natural renewal process. The unique formula visibly lifts, firms, and brightens the appearance of skin around the eyes, and reduces the appearance of dark circles."
My thoughts on this eye cream-
-I prefer a cream/lotion formula to this gel like one, but this feels kind of cooling on the under eye area.
-I think it's good for reducing puffiness after you remove makeup and wash your face, especially in the morning when you wake up.
-I haven't noticed any 'lifting' or 'firming' in my eye area, but I don't necessarily believe eye creams when they claim to do this.
-I sometimes think that this product sits ontop of the skin rather than actually soaking into your skin. I was rubbing my under eye area (bad, I know) probably about a half hour after I put this on at night time, and it started to rub and fake off from my skin. Sort of like if gel dried on your skin, and then you rub it off. Does that make sense? Lol.
Would I repurchase this?
I don't particularly find anything special about it. I actually like the Bare Minerals ones better. I will use this up, but I would rather try out different ones instead of repurchasing it!
