Friends, it's almost that time.. my 30th birthday. As I spend the next less than 1.5 months mourning my 20s and contemplating every decision I've made up until this point in my life.. plus going to school and having anxiety.. I've had many sleepless and/or tear-filled nights. My eyes puff up really easy, considering allergies and everything else. And nothing says 30 like eye cream. So, when I was shopping Prime Day, this eye cream, originally $26, was on sale for $16. I couldn't say no to that, plus free shipping since I have Prime anyway.
100% Pure makes a few different eye creams, all focusing on different issues. Ironically, they just posted a blog about their eye creams and which to purchase, depending on what your concern is. Here's the link:
To be fair, I don't really get bags under my eyes, but I can tell you, after using this for about a week, I'm pretty impressed with it. It's hard to see the ingredients based off my photo, so here they are, copied from the 100% Pure website:
" Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (Rose Hydrosol), Rosa Canina Seed Extract (Rosehip Oil), Coffea Arabica (Green Coffee) Seed Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Extracts of Coffea Arabica (Coffee Cherry) Seed, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf, Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Leaf, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf, Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal), Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla Absolute) Fruit, Euphorbia Cerifera Cera (Candelilla Wax) * Certified Organic "
When you read the ingredients, you'll notice something.. they're 100% pure! Fancy that huh? They really do a great job with their ingredients because everything is natural. I'm really impressed by the moisturizing properties of this, without feeling heavy, or interfering with my makeup. I get eczema on my eyes, and I've had a small patch on the left eye, bottom left corner near my nose, from my tear duct down. NOTHING cleared it up, until I started using this.
I hardly even need concealer under my eyes because they already look brighter. I haven't woken up with puffy eyes once, and I slept about 4 hours (maybe) last night, and it's been that way most of the week (it is Shark Week, after all).
The scent is fantastic; it smells like vanilla with a small tiny hint of coffee. Even if you don't like coffee, you won't mind this smell, because when I say hint I mean hint. It smells naturally sweet, not artificially sweet. It hasn't caused me any irritation in my eyes or around my eyes. Truthfully, I'm seriously impressed. This is only after a little over a week! Honestly, I'm really impressed with this stuff, especially for the $16 I paid for it. I'm really excited for it.
I've seen people say that they've developed milia as a result. Personally, I believe that's from using too much product and not allowing it to absorb all the way. You really only need a pinhead amount per eye, which, double benefit, it'll last forever! Money well spent. Thanks 100% Pure, and thanks Amazon Prime Day!
