Let’s Talk About Eye Creams

Up until a year ago, I never even held an eye cream in my hand. I thought they were something older ladies used to ‘combat’ wrinkles and didn’t have an intention of buying one anytime soon, but look at me now! I have two, haha. Both of these creams are targeted towards women with tired-looking eyes and fine lines. I personally don’t believe in creams reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but they do help to hydrate the skin, which is why I use them.

vichy idealia eyes review

Vichy Idealia Eyes is thicker in consistency and has a pearly tint, which brightens the under eye area. The tint does help to hide under eye circles as well, but only slightly, so I definitely wouldn’t be skipping your concealer unless you’re one of those extremely lucky people who don’t have to deal with under eye circles at all. It comes with a silicon applicator, which you can use to apply and blend the product. I tend to use my fingers out of habit, but I can see it being practical if you’re traveling and don’t have the opportunity to wash your hands. I can’t think of a scenario, though. Festivals maybe? Anyway, I usually use this cream when I’m not wearing much makep, as it helps to conceal, but doesn’t sit as good under a lot of makeup due to its richer, heavier consistency. 

la roche posay hydraphase intense eyes review

The one that is perfect for under makeup is La Roche-Posay’s Hydraphase Intense Eyes. It’s more of a clear gel that feels lighter on the skin and has a refreshing, de-puffing effect. If I had to choose between the two, I would go for this one because it sinks in faster and just feels lovely. My eyes definitely feel less tired when I use it in the morning.

    I'm in camp 'need an eye cream' but I'm 33 so that's to be expected I guess *sob* I have a few but find the Estée Lauder ANR eye cream to be fave xxthebeautybloss.com

    Čisto se strinjam s tvojo oceno, sem sama tudi imela Vichy in so me prav motli tisti bleščeči delčki in mi ni bila ravno najljubša glede na to, da kremico za okrog oči uporabljam vsak dan. Sicer sem sedaj testirala iz linije Aquali Thermal in je super fajn kremica, vlažilna ne pa hranilna za moje pojme:). La Roche Posay kremice pa še nisem probala, pa imam precej njihovihi zdelkov in so mi super za mojo suho kožo.

    Jaz, čeprav sem še najstnica, ful rada uporabljam svoj DIY gel iz aloa vere, tea tree olja, univerzalne kreme in vitamina E, ker dostikrat opazim da imam suho kožo (navkljub mastni po ostalem obrazu), pomaga pa tudi pri zabuhlih očeh/podočnjakih :)http://invisibly-perfect.blogspot.com/
