What Eye Creams Have I Been Using? 👀
Today’s topic is going to be on eye creams! I haven’t talked about eye creams in a while. It’s been a good minute. So today, I’m spilling the beannns. What eye creams do I use? Well, I have more than a couple of eye creams I’ve been using religiously in the morning and at night. I don’t know why I use this many. I have a skin care addiction that I’m trying to tame. 😮💨 But since I already have these eye creams, I’m here to share them! Let’s begin with what’s in the photo (iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream!!).
iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream:
This eye cream is rich and creamy. It’s meant for the eyes and face, but I only use it on my eyes. The main ingredients are propolis extract (40.5%) and hippophae rhamnoides fruit extract (0.2%). It contains a bunch of other beneficial ingredients too, such as niacinamide, betaine, sodium hyaluronate, licorice root extract, beta-glucan, and so much more. The ingredient list of this product is pretty extensive. This eye cream works very well as a moisturizing eye cream. It’s one of the many eye creams that I use that actually leaves the skin around my eyes moisturized. It also helps to moisturize my eyelashes too. I like this product. It’s affordable for an eye cream that comes in a 30 mL squeeze tube. Most eye creams I’ve encountered have been in tiny tubes (0.5 fl. oz.) and costs so much more. I think this eye cream is a good eye cream. I’ve gone through a few tubes of it already. As for fine lines and wrinkles, it didn’t do much for them. It’s just a good moisturizing eye cream. I guess moisturizing helps to diminish some fine lines here and there. On my skin, I haven’t noticed much of a difference with fine lines or wrinkles but love the moisture it provides my skin.
Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream:
This eye cream isn’t that moisturizing. I’ve gone through a few tubes of it already. I prefer the iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream when it comes to moisture. The only reason I’m still using Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream is because it comes in a 30 mL (1 fl. oz.) tube. It’s super affordable. It also contains centella asiatica extract (49%), asiaticoside, asiatic acid, and madecassic acid. It’s supposed to help with wrinkles, but I haven’t noticed any improvements in wrinkles or even fine lines. It hasn’t irritated my skin, the ingredients look good, I just kept on using it, lol. I still have a bunch more tubes of this product left. I guess I’ll continue to use it, haha. I’m not sure if I’m going to purchase it again when I’m done with all of them. It’s one of those products I’m just keeping around just because.
Benton Fermentation Eye Cream:
This is another favorite eye cream of mine. It’s the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream. The product feels super silky and creamy. Whenever I apply this eye cream to my eye area, it just feels really nice on the skin. I love the ingredients of this eye cream too. It contains galactomyces ferment filtrate, bifida ferment lysate, macadamia seed oil, aloe leaf extract, allantoin, betaine, panthenol, beta-glucan, and so on. This eye cream seems very compatible with my skin. Every time I use it, my skin improves in terms of softness and smoothness. Once again, just like the other eye creams, not much of a difference when it comes to fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. I just really like the texture and consistency of this product. I enjoy using it.
RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Eye Cream:
I’ve been an avid user of the RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Eye Cream. I think it’s been over 10+ years now. The formulation of this product is soft, silky, smooth, and blends into the skin well. It contains retinol and copper gluconate. It’s at the end of the ingredient list, but that’s OK. Why? Because it’s effective. Effective as in my eye area would look much worse if I didn’t use this eye cream. I remember when I tried to switch to another eye cream (Neutrogena brand), and the skin around my eyes looked terrible. I went back to RoC Retinol Correxion Line Smoothing Eye Cream so quick. As for fine lines and wrinkles, I think it helped. As I said before, my under eyes would’ve been much worse if I didn’t use this eye cream. It helps with maintenance, but it’s not perfection. I think this is the only eye cream I’ve used that does give some results. The main reason why I’m still using it! I don’t have crow’s feet so I can’t comment much on that. As for dark under eye circles and under-eye puffiness, nope, did nothing for them. You’re better off just getting enough sleep and eating healthy. I have pretty bad under eye circles, but I think it’s genetics. This eye cream is a staple in my skin care routine. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Love it.
Roc Mutli Correxion Hydrate + Plump Eye Cream:
I picked up another RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. There’s a few others I tried too, but I wasn’t impressed by them. This one caught my eye because it contains hyaluronic acid and peptides. The formula of this eye cream is very soft and silky. It feels very elegant on the skin. I’m on my second tube of this eye cream, and I like it so far. It truly does moisturize the eye area. It leaves my under eyes soft and smooth. I think I’m in love with another RoC Retinol eye cream! It feels amazing on my skin. It contains sodium hyaluronate, caffeine, peptides, zinc gluconate. I’m going to keep using it just because I like the texture and consistency of the product, and it’s another product I really enjoy applying to my skin. As for crow’s feet, I don’t have crow’s feet but would like to prevent them from forming. Hopefully it helps to fend these signs of aging away as much as possible. Dark under eye circles? No results there. It doesn’t help with under eye puffiness either. It’s good at deeply moisturizing the skin around the eyes.
CeraVe Eye Repair Eye Cream:
I’m currently using this eye cream (finishing it up). This is one of the eye creams that I decided to not continue using after I’m done with it. Even though it contains niacinamide, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. It did absolutely nothing for my skin. It’s not even moisturizing. I think this is one of the most overhyped eye creams I’ve used. There’s nothing special about it. I thought it would work due to the ingredients and good reviews, but it didn’t deliver. I won’t buy again.
Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream:
I picked up Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream when it was on sale, lol. I honestly wouldn’t have bothered with it if it wasn’t, haha. But, surprisingly, I actually like this eye cream. It contains snail secretion filtrate, sunflower seed oil, niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate, adenosine, peptides, and much more. It feels creamy and sticky when dispensed from the pump bottle. I’m not a huge fan of the pump bottle since more product comes out of it than what is needed. It feels a little sticky, but it blends into the skin well. It absorbs in to the skin without feeling tacky. This eye cream is supposed to brighten the eye area and help diminish the appearance of dark under eye circles plus puffiness. From my experience, I’m on my second bottle, I find it moisturizing. I haven’t noticed any other benefits using this product. I don’t think it’s exactly a bad product. It’s truly moisturizing. I feel like the ingredients are pretty redundant considering other products I’m using, so I’m not sure if there’s going to be a repurchase.
The next two products are not eye creams, but I’ve been using them as one. They are…
RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Filler:
I’m not new to this product. I’ve used it on and off in the past. It works. Doesn’t work. I don’t know. I purchased it again to see if it’ll work again. lol. This product contains retinol and hyaluronic acid. It’s supposed to fill in creases and re-plump the skin. It’s also supposed to help to diminish the look of deep wrinkles. I tried it on my face and all it did was clog my pores. It made my skin oily and dirty. Maybe it’ll work on someone with drier skin. For someone like me, with oily skin, unfortunately, it just did bad things to my skin. So! I started using it as an eye cream and neck cream. It seems to work better as that, since it’s more moisturizing. Have I seen results? I really don’t know, but I have a couple of tubes to finish. lol.
GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream:
This is a face cream, but it works amazingly as an eye cream! Unfortunately, it didn’t work on my facial skin. I started to get clogged pores after using it. Even though it made my skin look more even, brighter, and moisturized, I couldn’t continue to use it because of the breakouts. As an eye cream, it’s wonderful! I also use it as a neck cream. The product contains horse oil/fat, shea butter, niacinamide, peptides, ceramide, and lots of other ingredients that are beneficial for the skin! It’s very moisturizing on the skin. No wonder why it didn’t work on my face. It makes me wonder if I’m being ripped off by companies when I purchase tiny, small eye cream products. Might as well drop some other eye cream products from my routine and use this. It works the same way. This cream also does a great job smoothing out my skin. It works to moisturize and leaves the skin feeling very soft and smooth. Most of my other eye creams do the same but costs much more for the amount of product! Just a thought! I feel like this product may be a keeper. We’ll see!
Those are my thoughts on my eye care products. Thank you for reading. 🙂 What are your favorite eye creams? Share!
Continued: Skin Care Products I Stopped Using
I made a list of skin care products I stopped using in a previous post. Here’s another post on skin care products that I stopped using. A bunch more skin care products popped up out of nowhere. Well, I just noticed them. haha. Enjoy! 😊
Go here for my first list of products that I stopped using! 👈🏻
The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream
I’m almost done with this retinol eye cream from The INKEY List. I must say, once I finish the tube, I’m officially done with it. I wish I could say that it has done miracles to my eye area, but I have yet seen anything after months of using it. I opened a new tube of this product in January. It’s the end of May now. This is my third purchase of this product. I think that should be more than enough to see some results. And that’s not what I’m getting. So, it didn’t live up to what it claims to do. I think I’m over it. There are better retinol eye creams out there. This one isn’t for me. I feel like it’s just another useless product in my routine. I’m really just going through the motions using it up.
CeraVe Eye Repair Cream
CeraVe is a very popular skin care brand due to its ingredients (ceramides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide), and it’s an affordable drugstore brand with those particular ingredients. But I’ve used CeraVe for so many years and was never impressed by any of their products. Does anyone feel the same way? Even before it became super popular, it was just not that great to me. The CeraVe Eye Repair Cream did nothing for my under eyes. It didn’t help moisturize it either. If you’re looking for a good eye cream that moisturizes, this isn’t it. It didn’t help with fine lines and wrinkles. It didn’t help with dark under eye circles either. I feel like I just wasted my money on this eye cream when it works the same as the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. I’m not going to purchase it again. It’s such a below average product with overhyped ratings.
On to CeraVe Moisturizing Cream…
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
It’s been a drag trying to finish this product up. Some days I take a huge chunk of the product to speed up the process, lol. This moisturizing cream isn’t that moisturizing. It leaves a weird film behind on the skin, and I haven’t noticed an increase in moisture in my skin (body). I always need to follow up with another truly moisturizing product to keep my skin moisturized. This is another overhyped CeraVe skin care product. You got it, I won’t purchase again, lol.
Pure Horse Oil
I’ve been using 100% Pure Horse Oil for the past months. I tried using it on my face and that didn’t work out. It clogged my pores. *sigh* I haven’t found an oil that works on my reactive skin. This one went out real quick. I kept using it to moisturizing my neck and chest. I have to use it for something, right? lol. Well, after several months of using it, no results. I don’t think it has helped with anything or done anything for my skin. I prefer GUERISSON 9 Complex Cream instead, but it’s a cream that’s too heavy and rich for my face. It makes a really nice neck/chest cream though. Sometimes I use it as an eye cream too. Works way better at moisturizing compared to the other eye creams I’ve listed in this post — CeraVe Eye Repair Cream and The INKEY List Retinol Eye Cream. The Horse Oil goes on my not to buy list. I’m over it.
That’s all I can think of right now. I feel like I have WAY MORE skin care products to share. I’m sure I’ll encounter them along the way. hahahaha! 🙃 Thank you for reading! 😊
