I recently celebrated a big birthday and it was one where I suddenly realised I wasn't 'young' anymore and I needed to start thinking about things that I had not really considered before. Top of that list was wrinkles and, although I had not developed any obvious creases yet, I was aware that my eyes could look tired and 'crumpled' at times. For me, this was reason enough to invest in a decent eye cream and off I ventured to browse through the options.
I eventually opted for this Garnier UltraLift Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream which I found in my local Tesco for £8.97 for 15ml. The cream comes in a red tube (similar in design to a toothpaste tube) with a white plastic tip through which the cream can be squeezed. This comes in a white cardboard box.
The cream is specially designed for the thin, delicate skin around the eyes. It is hydrating, firming and has an anti-wrinkle action. The cream is enriched with Pro-Retinol to reduce the appearance of crow's feet wrinkles and wrinkles under the eye. It also contains ginger to relax the skin (although, thankfully, I can detect no scent of this as it is a smell I cannot abide).
The tube is easily squeezed to remove some cream and it comes out in a thin stream from the top. The cream is white in colour and quite thick, although not as thick as I would tend to associate with eye creams. It doesn't really have any scent to it. On application, it feels cool on the skin and is quickly and easily absorbed. It can be rubbed gently into the areas of concern (for me the outer corner of my eye) and it leaves the skin feeling moisturised but, crucially, not greasy. After a week or so of using the cream, the skin around my eyes definitely felt softer and a little plumper. It was noticeably in better condition although it had no effect on 'wrinkles' as such. As I said previously, I do not really have a problem with wrinkles anyway, it is more the laughter lines and creases that I am conscious of so I don't think it would be fair to expect it to work miracles on these anyway. By making the skin look healthier overall though it does make me less concerned about these areas.
Overall, I would say that this is a pretty decent eye cream. You only need a small amount per application and, as the eye is such a small area anyway, the tube lasts a long time. I will definitely buy this again.
