Hello skincare junkies,
in my land of sleepless nights, overworn contact lenses and depleting collagen, I am always looking for an eye cream that can make me look like I had 10 hours sleep, that can erase any signs of fatigue, wrinkles, tears of joy and sadness and that can pretty much make me look 15 again!The amount of money I spent over the years in the search is embarrassing but I might, i say ‘might’, have found the best eye cream yet!
SKINPEP is a small company I talked about before on my Instagram account and they offer a couple of eye creams and the one I am talking about is called ‘ dark circle eraser eye cream’:
I ordered it about a couple of months ago and I have been hooked ever since. It has a lightweight yet very hydrating feel to it, it comes out with a kind og goldish tone that helps to minimise dark circles immediatly but what really sold me was the ingredient list that i have to share with you:Matrixyl, Fibroblast Growth Factor, Transforming Growth Factor, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, MAP, Ascorbic Acid, Aloe Vera Ext, Niacinamide, Witch Hazel Ext, Panthenol, CO-Q10, Green Tea Ext, Algae Ext, Vit E, Red Ginseng Ext, Ginkgo Biloba Ext, Grape Seed Ext, Resveratrol, Adenosine, Retinol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cucumber Ext, Lecithin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Ferulic Acid, Laminaria Ochroleuca Ext, Soybean Seed Ext, Shea Butter, Evening Primrose Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Allantoin, Chamomile Ext, Padina Pavonica Ext, (Wheat) Germ Oil, Rose Flower Ext, Willow Bark Ext, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Bisabolol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dimethicone, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Laureth-7, Laureth-23, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Chlorphenesin, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Sodium Chloride, Disodium EDTA PEG-240/HDI Copolymer Bis Decyltetradeceth-20 Ether, Butylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane.
Where to start: the first ingredient is Matrixyl(aka Palmitoyl pentapeptide-4) is the first ingredient and a very powerful peptide shown to be very effective in plumping up fine lines. the list is pretty impressive with ingredients such as niacinamide for brightening,re tinol for retexrurising,an tioxidants,om egas,so othing ingredients like allantoin,hy aluronic acid and collagen.
Science facts aside , this eye cream pucks a punch especially for the very reasonable price :£14.99, you can also order a 2ml sample from their website for £2.99.
It works beautifully under makeup and on its own but what really impressed me is that my dark circles and bags have significantly diminished since using it and I also love the immediate brightening and softening effect it gives.
If you are looking for a good eye cream that does not cost the earth,th at is well formulated and effective then I highly recommed this one.Let me know if you tried it ,if you love it and generally what you think of it.
That’s all for now,
