Review: Andalou Naturals Luminous Eye Serum
I have another eye product to share! It’s called Andalou Naturals Luminous Eye Serum! It’s formulated with fruit stem cell complex, vitamin c, and goji glycopeptides for a lighter, tighter, brighter looking appearance. Caffeine from green coffee to uplift circulation for youthful luminosity. It’s 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Formulated without gluten, GMO, parabens, and synthetics. I read the claims, looked at the ingredients, and just went OK! Let’s see if it works! It looks so natural! So I finished this eye serum within 4 months. Now I’m here to share my experience with everyone. Here are my results!
I love vitamin c products. I had to try this serum to see if it works or not. I have terrible dark under eye circles even though I’ve had enough sleep, eat well, and drink enough water. It’s like, wow, these dark under eye circles will never go away, so let’s do something else about it! So this eye serum feels very soft and silky. It absorbs into the skin well. All you need is a little bit of product to cover the whole eye area. It feels gentle on the skin and doesn’t cause any issues like redness or bumps. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all. I love the texture of the serum. It feels very soothing on the skin. Now let’s peek at the ingredients…
The eye serum contains fruit stem cells, vitamin c in the form of Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, caffeine (green coffee), and goji berry as the advertised ingredients. But it also contains aloe barbadensis leaf juice, sodium pca, sodium hyaluronate, green tea leaf extract, cucumber fruit extract, and so much more! The ingredients look pretty good to me. It’s packed with ingredients that could possibly improve the skin around the eye area. Ahem, dark under eye circles! But let’s see if it did anything for my eyes, especially my horrible dark under eye circles.
So the first week of using this eye serum, I didn’t see a drastic change in my skin. It left my eye area feeling very moisturized and supple. I kept using it anyways since it’s only been a week. It takes time for skin care products to work and to see results (if there’s any, lol). I used it twice a day, morning and night. Never skipped a day. I had high hopes for this eye serum to brighten my under eye area and make it look more luminous. After 4 months (finishing the product) of dedicated use, unfortunately, I didn’t notice any brightening effect. It just felt gentle and soothing on my skin. It left my skin feeling really moisturized. I didn’t experience lighter, tighter, brighter looking skin. There was no youthful luminosity that the product claims to do. From my experience, it’s just another moisturizing eye serum/cream.
Pros & Cons
- Contains vitamin c (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate)
- Contains caffeine from green coffee and there’s goji berry!
- Gentle on the eye area
- Very soft and moisturizing
- No improvement in dark under eye circles
- No tightening effect, nothing
Here’s to another eye serum or eye cream that just moisturizes the eye area. That’s not a bad thing at all. I rather have an eye product that leaves the skin moisturized than leaving it taut and dry. But, this eye serum didn’t deliver the results that it claims to do. It didn’t help with my under eye circles. It didn’t make my eye area look brighter or tighter. All it did was just moisturize the skin around my eyes. After I finished the whole tube of serum, I moved on to other eye care products. Andalou Naturals Luminous Eye Serum makes a good eye moisturizer. I may or may not try it again in the near future. As of now, I don’t have enough interest in it.

Unboxing a NEW The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream! 😊
My order arrived today!! I didn’t think I would keep The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream in my skin care routine, but I guess I am (for now)! 😁 Why not?!! I’ve been using it for ages now. Well, it feels like ages. It’s like a staple in my routine by now. So I’m officially on my third tube of this eye cream. Hopefully I’ll see results this time. haha. HOPEFULLY!! Along with my order, I received some samples too. They are GLAMGLOW BRIGHTEYES Illuminating Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream and Wishful Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer. I’ll get to trying them out some time or whenever I remember to, lol. Now back to the retinol eye cream! Let’s unbox it! 🙂
So I did a review on this eye cream not too long ago. If you missed it, click right here. I also did a review on another eye cream from the same brand too. It’s THE INKEY List Caffeine Eye Cream <<< CLICK!!
Here’s my new retinol eye cream taken out of the box. It looks the same like it did before. No changes in packaging from what I’ve seen. Just the plain ol’ black and white coloring and design. So about the packaging, it looks worn out for some reason. It feels flimsy and rather cheap. I’ve noticed this about this brand. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing box and packaging from a brand. But that’s OK. I guess. ha.
This is what the retinol eye cream tube looks like. It’s not a sealed product. Just twist open the cap and use immediately. I wish it was sealed…
Here’s a swatch of the product. It’s a white-yellowish cream. This is my first time dispensing my brand new retinol eye cream. Very, very exciting! Even though I know exactly what to expect! LOL. It’s just oh so fresh and brand new!
Now…inside of the box. It explains the different kinds of eye creams they have. I’ve only used the retinol eye cream and caffeine eye cream. Maybe one day I’ll try the brighten-i eye cream. I’ve seen it, but I haven’t felt the need to try it out yet. I’m a little obsessed with kbeauty eye creams at the moment. They seem to work better, and they’re more affordable long term. They last so much longer too. I like them a lot more. And from the results (which is very little) I’ve achieved with the retinol eye cream and caffeine eye cream, I’m not sure what to think of the brighten-i eye cream. It’s whatever at the moment, lol. Maybe some time in the near future if I feel like it, I’ll pick one up.
It goes on to explain how long to see results too. Um, yeah, after two tubes and going on the third. I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to see results by now. haha. And I only use a tiny pea-size for both eyes. Hmmm! It’s been WAYYYYY OVER 6 weeks. 😮💨 Well! Let’s see if the third one is a charm! hehe! ✨ Also, I haven’t had any irritation or sensitivity to this product. Yay? Yes, yay. 🙃 But it is a slow release formula to help avoid irritation. FYI, this retinol eye cream is 3% vitalease stabilized retinol compound. That doesn’t mean 3% retinol. It’s only 0.09% retinol. It’s a low concentration retinol product. That may be the reason why I’m not seeing much results.
BUT! I have hope! 🤞🏻
So I’m looking forward to gorgeous eyes in the next upcoming weeks or months!!! Let’s see what this retinol eye cream can do this time around. 😊 An updated review coming up soon!
