I was fortunate to stumble upon a skin care and make up set at TK Maxx for just £12.99 and it had the foundation in it that I use anyway so I knew it was a great bargain.
Included in the set as this Bare Minerals eye cream, a little 7m pot which I was pleased to try.
The pot looks lovely, it's a white pot with a black screw top lid and the product inside is white and thick.
You can hydrate you eye area with this moisturising cream to dimish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is powered by the rare minerals active soil complex. The formula revitalises skin and boosts moisture and leaves the delicate eye area looking revived, refreshed and luminous.
I apply a tiny amount lightly using the fingertips to massage in the product. It leaves behind a greasy sheen for quite a while so for this reason I'll be saving mine to use at night time as I don't mind it having a while to sink in at night but it's no good in the morning when I am rushing out of the house and trying to apply make up!
I think this eye cream is a good nourishing product which I am happy to use at night, I have noticed a positive move in my skin's colouring and condition around the eye area since I started using it and it's going in the right direction!
This eye cream costs £35 for 15ml on the Fishpond website.
THE PRODUCT: I purchased this product last week when it was recommend to be by a staff member whom was working at the bareMinerals cosmetics counter in my local Boots store. I am currently suffering from dry skin around the eyes and most products irritate it or make it sure. She suggested this product as it's gentle and kind to this delicate eye area. The product claims to hydrate the eye area and to also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with regular use. The staff member told me to apply this morning and night and I should see results in a few days. The product certainly sounded good so I hoped it was going to work.
PRICE/AVAILABILITY: I purchase this from the bareMinerals counter for £23 which was for a 15ml pot of the eye cream. You can purchase this from the bareMinerals website as well.
USING THE PRODUCT: I applied the product day and night to the eye area including the eyelids where I have dry skin. You only need to use a little of the product as a little of it goes a long way. They suggest using your ring finger to pat the cream on although I gently rubbed it in as I wanted it to really help the dry skin mroe than anything else. The cream is white in colour and looks slightly glossy. There is no scent to the product at all. I found the cream really easy to apply and it didn't make my dry skin feel sore or irritated. After applying the cream i could see immediate results and the dry skin didn't look dry anymore, I was impressed. When applying this in the morning I find that it keeps my dry skin looking great mostly all day. I haven't been using the product long enough to determine whether it reduces fine lines or wrinkles but my eye area is a lot more hydrated and the dry skin in this area has improved a great deal.
OVERALL OPINION: I wasn't really sure what to expect from this product as I have never purchased anything from this range before but I have to admit that i was pleasantly surprised and pleased that the cream didn't sting or irritate my dry skin when applying it. I like that the cream feels light and silky when applying it and it gave instant hydration to the eye area which in turn made me look more awake. I noticed an improvment with the dry skin in this area after around 3-5 days of using the product both day and night. In terms of value the eye cream does sound quite expensive but it will last a long time as you do only need to use a little each time. This is definitely a product I am going to continue to use.
