For the last month I have been testing out philosophy’s new eye cream, eye hope ($48 at philosophy.com). Lauded as a breakthrough in eye creams, eye hope claims to significantly improve fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. It’s a lightweight, multi-functional formula that’s moisturizing and sensitive to the delicate skin around the eyes. Eye hope has anti-inflammatory benefits that calm and soothe skin, and light diffusing properties to help brighten skin tone.
Frankly, I was just hoping that the skin around my eyes wouldn’t break out in a red, itchy rash of eczema, which happens as a result of most eye creams I try. And after a month of use, however, I think I can safely say that I’m not allergic to eye hope. Yay! My skin has reacted to it perfectly. I haven’t seen any life altering results from it either, but honestly I’m just glad I found an eye cream I can actually use, so I give this stuff an A+
The other new eye cream on the market, which I’ve been dying to try but haven’t yet, is SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex ($85 at skinceuticals.com).
It’s said to dramatically decreases inflammation and dark circles around the eye. And I could definitely use help in the dark circles department. I’ve been having trouble sleeping since we got back from Chicago. I wonder if my eyes would freak out if I used SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex though?
Leave me a comment if you’ve tried this eye cream.
