When it comes to creams dedicated to the tiny section of skin under your eye, I used to be a little sceptical. I thought they were another way to sell us something we didn't completely need, but would somehow become obsessed with for years to come.
Over the past few years, I realised I've been pretty wrong. The older I've got, I've developed a real appreciation for products that treat my eyes to the goodness they really deserve.
(I know I'm only 23, but that's 23 years since I was born, and that's a pretty long time if you ask me!)
Liz Earle's Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion and Superskin Eye Cream have been working like a dream for me recently. As you know, the skin under our eyes is a lot thinner and more delicate than the rest of your body. Mistreatment of this, and generally not doing the basics like sleeping well, and drinking enough water can eventually take its toll. Most of my day-to-day activities involve me being on a laptop, which can leave my eyes feeling very tired, so these two products have been my go-to pick me up products this year. I usually either wipe my eyes with the Soothing Eye Lotion to revive them, or soak cotton pads with it and leave them on my eyes like a mini mask. It's honestly done wonders for my everyday eye care routine. The surrounding area of my eyes always feels fresh and revived after using it - something I really appreciate at the end of a long working day.
Now, this with the Superskin Eye Cream is a wining combo for me. I tend to use this cream after cleansing my skin every morning and night. It always leaves my under eye area feeling moisturised - which is super important to me. And it's not the kind of moisture that wears off after a few seconds. It's the kind of moisture that feels long lasting, the kind that actually feels like it's doing its job! If you're not sure about eye creams, or you've never tried one before, I dare you to try this power couple and let me know what you think!
