I know that eye oil has been all the rage for what seems like forever, but I'm going to be honest with you guys, I've never used it. Not even once. When I received this in my Petit Vour Beauty Box a few months ago, I truly didn't know if I would ever use it. I just never thought I had a need for eye oil. My under eye area is never dry or flaky. I don't have any fine lines. I get eczema patches on my eye lid and the corners of my eyes occasionally, but I didn't think eye oil would be a remedy for that. Plus, in keeping with my eczema, I have sensitive skin and I know how sensitive your eye skin is, so I was always afraid to use something so close to my eyes, not knowing if it would be gentle enough.
Once the New Year hit I went though all my makeup and beauty stuff and I was like, how did I get so much stuff?! I vowed to start using more of my stuff. I hate seeing things go to waste. So when I saw the eye oil I was like, let's do this. And guess what? I'm a believer! I can't believe I waited so long to use eye oil!
Here's the ingredient list, as written on their website: Ingredients: *jojoba & rosehip seed oils; Vitamin E; rose essential oil
*certified organic ingredient
With those simple ingredients, I'm not at all surprised by how gentle it is. Four simple and all natural ingredients. I know what all of them are, and that is so important to me. I've rubbed my eyes soon after I used it not remembering I put it on, and it was fine. My eyes didn't sting or anything. It absorbs really fast too, which is a bonus. It doesn't leave a greasy residue at all either. It also doesn't look greasy. It's very light weight which is why I think it absorbs so quickly and leaves no residue.
I also really love the way it smells! It's got a gentle and real rose scent, and it smells so pretty. Not fake roses, real authentic roses from the essential oils. I really like the small dropper that comes with it too. Literally one drop is enough for both eyes. This tiny bottle will last forever. This oil is so soothing! I rub it underneath my eyes, and the corner of my eyes, my eyelids, and up to my eyebrows. My skin is so soft after just one use, and it remained soft the entire next day even after I washed my face. I always thought that my eye skin was soft, but I didn't realize just how soft it could be until I used this eye oil. My under eye looks brighter and smoother from the oil. I don't use it in the morning, so I've never tried it under my makeup, but I use it every night after I wash my face.
I've seen enough good results from this eye oil to believe that it works. It's safe, gentle, and does exactly what it should. Whether you're an eye oil junkie, or a first timer like me, you're going to want to check this stuff out. There are two different sizes: a 5 ml for $18 and a 15 ml for $40. Truthfully, you probably won't need more than a 5 ml with how sparingly you need to use this. Happy Shopping friends!
