Review: The INKEY List Caffeine Eye Cream
I did a review on The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream just a couple of days ago. If you missed out on it, don’t forget to go check it out! 🙂 Today, let’s chat about another eye cream from The INKEY List! It’s the Caffeine Eye Cream. So this eye cream is a lightweight, hydrating eye cream. It’s supposed to help reduce the appearance of puffy eyes, fine lines, wrinkles, and dryness. It contains caffeine to reduce the look of puffiness. Matrixyl 3000 to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s for dry, normal, combination, and oily skin. A cruelty-free eye cream. Now here are my thoughts on this eye cream after finishing it!
This eye cream is creamy in texture. It’s a true cream. It comes in a 0.5 oz. (15 mL) tube. It’s the same size as the The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream. Just another eye cream in a tiny packaging. The instructions says to use the eye cream in the AM and PM. After cleansing, apply a small amount onto finger and gently pat the product around the contour of the eye area. Can be combined with other serums and moisturizers. I followed the instructions. The eye cream feels lightweight on the skin. It has a soft and gentle feel to it. Blends into the eye area very well. I haven’t had any issues with application and haven’t had any skin irritations with the eye cream. I also used it twice a day (morning and night) for full benefits. It feels moisturizing on the skin. Not drying at all. Now on to the results…
As for the results, I honestly haven’t noticed a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. The eye cream didn’t help with eye puffiness either. I think this eye cream is just good at moisturizing the skin. That’s not entirely a bad thing. It’s just that, it is advertised as an eye cream that will help diminish, reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and being moisturizing at the same time. Even though I love how it doesn’t settle into the creases of my eyes and doesn’t dry out the skin around my eyes, I still want more out of an eye cream than just plain ol’ moisturizing. I currently have other eye creams that are less expensive and comes in a larger tube that moisturizes my eyes just as well as this eye cream (some even better). So this eye cream hasn’t done much for me.
Pros & Cons
- Contains caffeine and matrixyl 3000
- No results. Didn’t help with fine lines, wrinkles, eye puffiness, dark under eye circles. Nothing.
So, after this experience, I’m not planning on purchasing this eye cream again. It’s a pretty basic eye cream. Between the Caffeine Eye Cream and Retinol Eye Cream from The INKEY List, I prefer the Retinol Eye Cream a little more even though they both didn’t deliver results. Both of these products aren’t too expensive. I can see why someone would choose to use it considering the ingredients and price for the product.
