Beyond Organic Skincare Firming Eye Cream – 15ml (£18.00)
Eye creams often promise the world. They will sort out your dark eyes, erase lines, reduce puffiness and generally turn back time. One of my biggest concerns is that the eye area is extremely delicate and sensitive. The skin around the eye is very thin. I don’t like the idea of chemical ingredients going anywhere near my eye balls.
This is my first review for both an eye product and from the Beyond Organic Skincare range. My first comment on this tiny little pot is, don’t be put off by its size! This 15ml pump is going to last you AGES! It is highly concentrated and you really do only need a small amount.
I was first drawn towards trying this product thanks to the ingredients list. The biggest ingredient in the pot is Rose flower water, followed by Sunflower oil, Macadamia seed oil, Rosehip oil and Shea Butter. Almost all of the ingredients in the pot are certified organic and there are some great plant extracts including Rosemary, Wheatgerm, Eyebright and Willow.
Del Brown Application Tip; pump out a small amount onto the tip of your finger. Ideally this will be the finger next to your little finger (less pressure). Now marry your fingers together so you have an equal amount on each hand. Then gently dab, press and pat into the skin around the eyes. Take it up onto and around the orbital bone and allow the cream to spread and absorb all around the eye area. Paying particular attention to lines around the side and over the eye lid. Don’t use too much, you don’t want to over load the skin with product.
I found this cream absorbed easily and one of the most important factors when using an eye cream, it didn’t make my eyes sting. That always concerns me when an eye cream makes my eyes sting. The packaging is gender neutral. The smell is slight and natural. The pump is small and convenient to use.
