Brand Overview

e.l.f.’s 50 MG CBD Eye Cream contains an impressive mix of beneficial ingredients to hydrate, soothe, and keep skin looking healthy. Unlike some products on the market that make CBD claims without actually containing a viable source of this intriguing ingredient, this eye cream contains legitimate cannabidiol (CBD)!

Starting things off right, this gel-based eye cream comes in opaque squeeze-tube packaging, which helps keep its beneficial ingredients from breaking down prematurely from air and light exposure. It glides on with ease and absorbs imperceptibly, leaving a non-greasy, lightweight skin-softening feel. The formula is fragrance free, which is especially good news for the delicate eye area.

Skin-soothing CBD is backed by research for reducing pro-aging inflammation. We were impressed that e.l.f. went the extra mile to provide an official certificate of analysis on their website to prove their source/concentration of full-spectrum CBD. “Full spectrum” refers to the presence of other cannabinoids rather than just cannabidiol (CBD) alone. This form is believed superior due to the synergistic action of the cannabinoids.

More to love, this eye cream’s peptides, skin-replenishing ingredients, and antioxidants amp up the anti-aging benefits. The sodium hyaluronate, which is a derivative of hyaluronic acid, can also help slightly plump skin as claimed (just keep your expectations realistic in that regard).

Are there more concentrated CBD products out there? Sure. But for the price, this is a great way to experience what CBD and all of the other beneficial ingredients can do for your skin. The only downside is that if you have very dry skin around your eyes, this won’t be as richly moisturizing as you need—but for everyone else, it’s great!

Pros:
  • Contains legitimate cannabidiol (CBD) to reduce pro-aging inflammation and soothe skin.
  • Peptides, skin-replenishing ingredients, and antioxidants add more anti-aging benefits.
  • Includes sodium hyaluronate for plumping.
  • Provides a lightweight, skin-softening feel.
  • Packaged in a way that helps protect the beneficial ingredients.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.

More Info:

Why You Might Not Need an Eye Cream: There’s much you can do to address signs of aging around your eyes, but it’s not mandatory to use a product that’s marketed specifically for the eye area. Any product loaded with antioxidants, emollients, skin-repairing and skin-brightening agents, and skin-soothing ingredients will also work well in the eye area. Those ingredients don’t have to come in a product labeled eye cream, eye gel, eye serum, or eye balm—they can be present in any well-formulated moisturizer or serum.

Most of the products designated as exclusively for the eye area are not really necessary because they contain nothing special for the eye area, they come in packaging that will not maintain the effectiveness of their key ingredients, and/or they are poorly formulated with fragrance or other irritants.

Just because a product is labeled as a special eye-area treatment does not mean it’s good for the eye area, or for any part of the face; in fact, many can make matters worse.

It’s staggering how many eye-area products lack even the most basic ingredients to help skin. For example, most eye-area products don’t contain sunscreen, which is a serious problem because it leaves skin around your eyes vulnerable to sun damage—and that absolutely will make dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles worse. Of course, for nighttime use, eye-area products without sun protection are just fine. If you opt to apply an eye cream without sunscreen during the day, be sure to apply a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater over it.

Any product you use in the eye area must be well formulated and appropriate for the skin type around your eyes. You might prefer to use a product specially labeled as an eye cream, but you might do just as well by applying your regular facial moisturizer and/or serum around your eyes. Experiment to see what combination of products gives you the best results.

e.l.f. At-A-Glance

e.l.f. (it stands for which stands for Eyes, Lips, Face) was founded by Scott Vincent Borba and Joseph Shamah. The story goes that one day Borba was shopping in a dollar store and noticed women dressed in designer clothing and sporting designer handbags loading up their baskets with inexpensive nail polish, eye pencils, and lip balm. He took note of the products being sold in such stores and quickly decided he could offer products of even higher quality at the same competitive price. His idea paid off, as e.l.f. has enjoyed continued success and increased distribution online and in retail stores.

For a line offering many products for just a dollar (OK, there are plenty that cost $3 and $5, too), there are a surprising number of hits in the mix (especially the makeup brushes). True, not everything is going to be as luxurious or innovative as some higher-end brands, but overall you're likely to be impressed with what they developed for so little money, and you may just find some beauty bargains!
