I've been looking for a good eye cream for what feels like ages, and I'm relieved to say that I've found it! After spending ages researching various brands I had decided to try out the Khiel's creamy treatment but they didn't have any samples for me to try. I then decided to pop into TK Maxx to see if I could find anything to tide me over for the time bring. I came across this By Nature Rejuvinating Eye Creme and decided to give it a go (for blogging purposes of course).
First impression wise, this eye cream sounds perfect. The brand 'By Nature from New Zealand' try to incorporate nature's best gifts into their skincare products. This eye cream is jam packed with ingredients such as collagen to plump up the skin, aloe vera for it's hydrating properties, organic rosehip oil which is easily absorbed into the delicate eye area, and also hyaluronic acid and argan oil.
The texture is the main thing that I focus on when looking at an eye cream. I don't suffer from puffiness under my eyes, but my under eye area gets quite dry and dehydrated. That's why I tend to favour eye creams over eye gels. The texture of this is just right for me, the cream is really light and absorbs easily. It's very hydrating without being on the rich side, and you only need the teeniest amount to smooth over under the eyes. I could actually see results the first time I used it! Dark circles can be a heredity thing (I can sleep for up to 12 hours so it's not that!) but keeping the under eye area well hydrated can lessen the look of them, and it has definitely helped me with mine. My under eye area also felt less tight and looked hydrated for once.
The packaging is sort of your bog standard eye cream, a plastic squeeze tube with a nib that's also hygienic and stops too much product coming out. It contains 15g of product, which is again close to your standard 15ml available in most eye creams.
It's now been about five months months since I've started using it both morning and night alongside my other skin care products and I'm really pleased with it. It ticks all the boxes for me, and I'll definitely repurchase it, if I can find it again that is. It's only available in TK Maxx in the UK, and that's the only downside, as I haven't spotted it since. I got it for a RRP of £5.99 which is quite inexpensive considering the high quality, and the emphasis on natural ingredients. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for some of their other products.
P.S. It is available online here, but shipping will cost you quite a bit.
Update: I manged to find another eye cream from the same brand in TK Maxx, which I'll be trialling when this runs out, as well as a day and night cream.
Also, I'm sorry about the long absence! I was bogged down with coursework at the end of last year, then I had a horrible two week cold, and then I had my January exams to revise for (which are now over yay!).
I hope you enjoyed this post!
