Thalgo Moisturising Eye Care
Advantages: Soft on eye area, easy to apply, leaves skin looking and feeling great
Disadvantages: None from me
I am sure for those of you that have read my last few reviews will know that I have been lucky enough to go to a couple of day spas. At these places there are usually a number of different products for you to try, products that are not always available on the high street. Whilst I love having a go with them all, when I have had facials, you get a prescription of the products that are best suited to you; one of these was the Thalgo Moisturising Eye care creams. The therapist will only advise you on what your needs are and there has never been any pressure to buy the product. With a reduction on the price available I made a purchase of this Thalgo product and as I take very little care of the skin around my eye it was about time I paid a little bit more attention and so I went away pleased with my product and eager to give it ago.
At full price the eye cream will cost you around the £20.00 mark. I actually don't think that this is too high a price to have to pay. That is the price that I would expect to pay for some high street brands such as Clarins or Estee Lauder. The Thalgo brand is not one that you can just pick up on the high street though, I know John Lewis and House of Fraser stock the product and that you can also buy the eye cream direct from the Thalgo website or from places like Amazon and Cheap Smells.
The eye cream comes in a white plastic tube with the Thalgo logo on the top. There is also the name of the product on the front of the tube. On the reverse is information on the eye cream as well as an ingredient listing and directions for use. This may look a small tube and there is nothing that fancy about the packaging to be honest but it is one of those products that will last a long time and a little will go a long way. You really do need the smallest of amounts.
The Thalgo eye cream is designed to 'remove wrinkles' as it contains anti-ageing ingredients, it is also designed to tighten the skin around the eye area. We are told that this needs to be used morning and night but I tend to use it just on the evening, it is the only time I seem to remember to apply it but it can be used as a base to make up and applied of the morning as Thalgo suggest.
To apply is very easy, you just need to squeeze the tube and the gel will appear. The first thing that I noticed was the refreshing marine scent; it is not too heavy and really quite pleasant. The gel is really easy to apply; I put a little onto my finger and then put it on the eye area. It had a very smooth consistency and it wasn't as thick as I thought it would be, it wasn't runny but it was easy to move around my skin.
The gel certainly tightens the skin. I did a review on my Estee Lauder eye cream the other day and it was fair to say that it wasn't that impressive as there was no sign if any results but my skin did feel better for using this eye cream. I liked that a small amount was required and it suited my skin really well.
Even though I don't know the Thalgo brand that well, it has certainly impressed me, I would be tempted to look at the other products that they offer!
A 5 out of 5 from me
Thank you for reading
