The eyes are the window to the soul, right? But what about the skin around your eyes, does that say anything about your soul? Probably not. But if it did, what would it say? My eyes often look tired because I don’t get to sleep in past 7am much, and the beginnings of crows feet and under-eye wrinkles are making themselves known. So I guess my soul is tired and wrinkly? Sounds like a really bad roast chicken. Or an old dress that’s been worn one too many seasons. When my La Roche-Posay eye cream ran out recently I wanted something with a little bit of extra strength. The La Roche-Posay was a nice eye cream, and I bought it when Priceline had a 40% off sale, so I didn’t pay the expensive full price, but I think it didn’t really do a lot for my eye area. To be honest, I don’t think any eye cream has really done anything much for my under-eye area, no matter how expensive.
I have used a couple of Dermalogica products in the past, my favourite being their Special Cleansing Gel. When browsing the Adore Beauty website, I realised I hadn’t tried any of Dermalogica’s eye treatment products. A quick Google for product reviews yielded a lot of very positive comments about their Multivitamin Power Firm cream, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.
I’ve been using the product for about ten days now, and I have to say that I quite like it. While I’m yet to see any long term difference, obviously, I do really like the texture and wear of the product. It’s a denser, heavier eye cream than I’m used to, but it’s not greasy and doesn’t sit on top of my skin taking ages to absorb. A little bit goes a long way, and it glides on smoothly, soaking in within seconds. It feel luxurious without being heavily perfumed, and there’s something about the simplicity of the packaging that I appreciate. Dermalogica knows how to keep the focus on the job at hand; there aren’t any made-up sounding chemicals in the ingredient list. It’s got a bunch of vitamins in it (obviously) which beauticians are always banging on about these days, notably vitamin A, C and E, and it has that magical ‘antioxidant’ word that makes it sound like using the eye treatment will quietly but powerfully erase all your skin troubles away as soon as you apply it. I also dab a bit of this over the top of my upper lip line, because you know those little wrinkles and creases are JUST WAITING to appear and I won’t let them. We’ll see who wins that battle.
I’m very happy with this product, and I’m glad I took a chance on it. Dermalogica is a tried and true brand in my book, and if you want something a little stronger for those pesky eye troubles, this might be for you. I nabbed the product when Adore Beauty was having a sale, so I purchased it for $57 (regular price is $63AUD), which isn’t cheap, but as I’ve mentioned before I’ve learned over the last few years that most of the time cheap skincare and cosmetics don’t really offer much by way of results. It’s time to invest a little more in my skin when I can. It’s worth noting as well that Adore Beauty offers free shipping on all Australian orders, and if you spend over fifty dollars you get two free samples, which I love – they’re always good to stash away in my travel toiletries bag.
