It was a sad day when this fabulous eye cream came to an end. For a small little pot (15ml) it lasted me over 5 months of twice daily use. You really only need the smallest amount, and thank goodness for that because it is most definitely a luxury buy at £75 (!!!).
For this reason I would only recommend to those with substantial beauty budgets, or serious concerns for their eye area. My eye area concerns really only extend to hydration and plumping out fine lines and wrinkles, I don’t currently have puffiness or dark circles (probably jinxing it) although I believe this cream is excellent for both of those. As a hydrating eye cream this works wonders and the added silicones act as a great primer for the eye area, making makeup application smooth and easy.
The product is filled with really impressive ingredients including various antioxidants, botanical extracts, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and peptides. One such peptide is a non toxic form of topical botox, encouraging your muscles to relax and move less, therefore reducing the depth of wrinkles and preventing new ones. But don’t let that worry you, the effect is subtle and in no way comparable to getting the real thing! Your face will not be in any way ‘frozen’. Zelens also have a great section on their website called the Zelens Garden, where they go into a lot of detail about the different plant extracts used, it’s worth a peruse, HERE.
FOR SMALLER BUDGETS…
If you are looking for a good hydrating eye cream to suit a smaller budget, I recommend trying the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream. It offers lasting hydration that sinks in beautifully and leaves a lovely plump feeling. It contains some excellent ingredients like rosehip oil, coconut oil, hyaluronic acid and cucumber oil to mention just a few – a great product, and only £20 (15ml).
Also great and for a smaller share of your cash is the NUXE Prodigieux Eye Contour (15ml) for £18.50. It contains hyaluronic acid for hydrating, and antioxidants and caffeine for puffiness and dark circles. NUXE is available on most online beauty sites, as well as M&S , Space NK and independent pharmacies. Oh and this eye cream smells divine!
