I received a really lovely little toiletry bag full of Murad skin care recently for purchasing an item made by Murad on the Regis (hair salon) website. I opted for a lip cream as the purchase as I can never seem to have enough lip products on the go.
Small tube of goodness
One of the items in the freebie bag was a tiny tube of eye cream. Just 4 ml to be precise. But when you know a full sized tube is only 15ml anyway, 4ml doesn't seem so small any more.
The tube is white with a pretty lime green accent and inside the cream is a lovely thick white consistency.
It is worth noting that this is a pretty pricey product. At £60.30 for 15 ml on the John Lewis Website it is not cheap but you only need a tiny amount to work with.
I found a tic tac sized blob was more than enough to do the eye area. It is advised to dab then pat on to the brow bow and also beneath the eye. I like to layer it quite thickly and let it sink in for a while. I immediately noticed a cooling effect on the eye area that was quite lovely and relaxing.
The other point worth mentioning about this eye cream is that it smells totally divine. A bit of cocoa butter and coconut scent (I think).
So what is in it?
Key ingredients are Palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 reduces medium-to-deep crow's feet and diminishes puffiness for a brighter appearance. Wild yam and soybean dramatically increases moisture, elasticity and firmness, Natural emollients boost moisture.
This is firming and good for dark circles around the eye area. I will be sparing with mine to make sure it goes as far as possible. My eyes definitely look better thanks to this treatment and it has helped to brighten the dull skin around the eye area.
