A’kin by Purist Revitalising Lifting Eye Creme – 15ml (£24.00)
Let me start this review by saying a friend of mine who I’d not seen in a while commented, “You look rested‘. Now he wasn’t to know I had not been getting my usual 10 hours sleep lately, but the only thing I had been doing different, was to be trialling this lifting eye cream from Australian born A’kin.
This eye cream is easily dispensed through the squeezy tube. Apply a small amount, about the size of a grain of rice, onto your finger and gently pat the cream into the skin under the eye, the eye lids and around the orbital bone. Try to avoid rubbing or dragging the skin. Less is more when it comes to eye creams, as you don’t want to over load the skin with product. Repeat this routine every night and see the results for yourself. Within a few minutes of applying you can see the wrinkles around the eye look less defined, more ‘plumped up’ and hydrated.
The base of this eye cream is water, plant based glycerine and shea butter. Half way down the ingredients list we find Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid. Other key oils and Australian native botanicals include Jojoba seed oil, Rosa Canina, better known as Dog Rose, which is high in vitamin C. Rapidly absorbing Avocado Oil, Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Juice, which is extraordinarily high in vitamin C and Balsam Copaiba Resin, extracted from the bark of a South American native tree and used medicinally since the 16th century. Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil which is naturally high in three fatty acids. Olive oil and finally Rosemary leaf extract.
There are no added perfumes to this formulation, nor colourings and the mix of naturally derived ingredients creates a faintly, mild botanical aroma with a natural white/cream colour. The 15ml in this tube, if used correctly, is going to last you ages. Suitable for both men and women, of an age that notice dreaded lines appearing but not disappearing around the eyes. Gentle, natural ingredients, easy to use and visible results, what more could we want in an eye cream. Fully Del Brown Approved!
