I am always trying new creams, normally when I spot something on offer but my mum always swears by Dr Hauschka. Now I am in my 30's, the lines are starting to show, particularly my crows feet so she decided to buy me a selection of their facial products for my birthday.
One of the items she brought was the Revitalizing Eye Cream.
It comes in a long thin tube like most eye creams do and each bottle contains 12.5ml of product. The tube is white with black and gold writing on and has the orange band with the logo on.
Not many places stock Dr Hauschka, my mum buys it from John Lewis online, what I like about John Lewis is they offer a wide variety of delivery options (evenings, next days, specific days and Saturdays all for reasonable prices). You can also buy online from Dr Hauschka direct at http://www.drhauschka.co.uk where delivery is free if you spend over £40 but the delivery options are not as flexible.
This particular eye cream retails for just under £28
*How to use:*
It is recommended to use the cream twice a day, just before bed and in the morning. I find it is quite light and not very greasy so it absorbs really quickly meaning I am not waiting around ages before I can apply my make up in the morning. You only need a small amount on your finger and gently pat around they contours of the eye working from the inside out. As the skin around your eyes is quite delicate, do not rub it as this will stretch the skin and make your eyes worse.
It is advertised as having a fragrance of marshmallows and pineapple, there is definitely a sweet smell when you first apply but it is not too overpowering and fades quite quickly.
What I like about this brand is that they use completely natural ingredients and do not test on any animals. Also, they boast that where possible, they try and obtain most of their ingredients from certified biodynamic and organic sources.
I have been using the product for around a month now and there is still over 75% of the tube left.
Although the results were not instant, within about a week of using, I starts to notice the difference. Without using loads of concealer, I always have dark circles under my eyes, these were visibly reduced but the biggest difference I noticed was my crows feet, although they are still there, the lines are not as deep and there aren't as many of them.
Although I would not normally entertain any eye cream at this price, I think it is worth the money. From how much I have used so far, I feel it will last me for a good six months and unlike a lot of cheaper versions, it works!
I would class myself as having combination skin and sometimes I tend to suffer with dry patches around my eyes, the cream has never irritated my skin and has stopped the dryness I sometimes have.
Over the years, the brand has won loads of beauty awards and I can see why.
Overall, 5 out of 5 stars from me, I will never buy another brand of eye cream.
Thanks for reading.
