+ hydrates and nourishes the skin around the eyes without being too heavy.
+ great under eye makeup, particularly concealer (which looks cakey on my dehydrated eye skin).
+ has a light, fresh cucumber scent.
+ formulated without parabens, propylene glycol, mineral oils, and harsh chemicals.
+ packed with great botanical actives like Jojoba oil, Cucumber Extract, Green Tea, and Macadamia oil, which are all packed with antioxidants.
+ the Jojoba is cold pressed and harvested from the company’s own farm.
+ the soothing and hydrating properties of cucumber extract in this makes it ideal to use as an adjunct to irritating treatments like topical retinols and retin-A.
- If you are looking for something that will dramatically reduce fine lines, this is probably not going to give you the results on it’s own (judging by the ingredients). You probably need to look into stronger actives like Retin-A, 10%+ vitamin C, or DMAE to supplement an everyday eye balm like this one.
