Origins Eye Doctor Eye Cream
Oh eye creams, the bane of my life. I had been using the Kiehl's Creamy Avocado Eye Cream previously and I just couldn't get on with it, it was my second tub but this time round, it just wasn't working. I hated how the cream went into an oil and if you didn't warm up the product enough before application it would drag the skin and the oil took ages to sink in, it never sat right under my concealer and I generally really didn't like it. I can't say it was hydrating enough either, yes it turned into an oil but it would sit on the skin instead of sink in. So after being thoroughly fed up of a bad eye cream, I found myself purusing the Origins stand in my local Debenhams. I purchased the Origins Eye Doctor Eye Cream after watching one of Tanya Burr's videos where she mentioned she used it, if it's good enough for Tanya Burr and her skin is flawless, it's good enough for me. At the moment I'm 50/50 with this, it's hydrating and sinks into the skin well but I've not seen a massive reduction to the dehydration lines around my eyes - I do think this is caused by my lack of water intake. This eye cream is a great base for under eye concealer because of how quickly it sinks in, it doesn't leave any greasy residue so that concealer doesn't crease. If hydration is your main concern around your eyes then I'd really recommend picking this up, I find it's very similar to the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream but not as thick in consistency but packs in the same amount of moisture. I like that this cream is gentle so it would even suit those with sensitive eyes and it seems fragrance free. This is a great step for anyone in their 20's wanting to prevent any signs of fine lines, of course I can't say how well it will work because I'm only 21 but an eye cream is always a good place to start.
