Skin type: Dry to Normal, Sensitive
If you’ve read my 2015 Beauty Favorites Post, then you know that I wear false eyelashes almost everyday. Wearing eyelashes all the time takes a toll on my eyelids. To be honest, I bought this eye cream on a whim, because I heard that it was very hydrating. My skin type around my eye area is usually dry to normal, and I still have fairly young skin. I really wanted an eye cream that hydrated my skin, and prevent premature wrinkles.
I suffer from eczema, which occasionally flares up on my face. Fortunately, I have it mostly on my hands, but sometimes it flares up on my face if I have a reaction. I marked out the parts around my eyes that usually prone to rashes, and are the most dry.
I think the one thing that intrigued me the most about this particular eye cream, is that it contains avocado oil. I don’t really see a lot of products made with this ingredient. Avocados contain antioxidant carotenoids, vitamin e and c, and has monounsaturated fatty acids, which all are excellent for hydrating dry skin.
I have to say, when I first used the product, I thought it was a weird texture. It is thick, and feels like a paste. However, when applied, it doesn’t feel heavy, or greasy. It is AMAZING. I had an allergic break out, and this cleared it up in 2 days! I bought the smaller jar (.5 fl oz) of this eye cream, but I think it will last me a really long time. I never have to use a lot on my eyes. I usually lightly dip my finger into the pot, and then dab around each eye (shown below).

Overall, this product was fantastic. 5 stars! If you have a problem with sensitive skin and dry patches I highly recommend this product. I must say, it is more on the expensive side, but it really is worth every dollar.
