I first really took notice of this product when Demi Lovato tweeted about it. She really has gorgeous skin & I try to pay attention to stars in my age bracket since they really can choose to use anything! She called this group of products her “miracle workers” & there are really some awesome ones up there! I took most notice of the eye balm of course but maybe I’ll try some of the others in the future too! Who doesn’t want celeb-worthy skin?
So what makes this so special? Well, after about 6 months of off & on use I think I can tell you! This isn’t a cream but a balm & it is wonderfully balanced hydration for me which is oh-so-important. Hydration is important for making your undereyes look more healthy, reducing wrinkles, & applying undereye makeup seamlessly. Ever tried to apply concealer on dry, patchy undereyes? No one wants that look!
Not only does this eye balm hydrate but it sinks in quite quickly which is surprising. Normally when something sinks in quickly it isn’t moisturizing enough for me but that just isn’t the case this time. This nourishing cream is supposed to diminish signs of aging around the eyes with time. I immediately noticed my dark circles improving within a week & it helps with puffiness as well. Alguronic Acid combined with vitamin C, caffeine, cucumber, aloe and green tea extracts help reduce fine lines and wrinkles while nourishing and hydrating the eye area. It also doesn’t contain parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. The scent is really light & doesn’t irritate my allergy-prone sensitive eye area at all.
I’ve always really enjoyed Algenist products but this one goes above & beyond for me personally- a wonderful surprise. I can’t imagine not having a jar on hand at all times! I find myself using this off & on both day & night but I think I prefer it at night. I used this the entire time I was in California on vacation because I know I can truly depend on it. This is an amazing product & I couldn’t be happier I found it!
