Brand Overview

There is no relief of any kind to be found in this eye cream. It's marred not only by jar packaging (the packaging must be airtight to keep the important ingredients stable) but also by the inclusion of phototoxic angelica root extract and the irritating menthol derivative menthyl lactate. As seems to be the trend for this line’s products, the genuinely interesting ingredients are included alongside problematic ones and it contains a fair share of synthetic ingredients.

The price for this product causes us stress just thinking of what a waste of money this is and how problematic this product is for skin.

Lastly, an eye cream like this is really not a necessity. Whatever product you put around your eye area, regardless of what it is labeled, must be well formulated and appropriate for the skin type around your eyes! That may mean you need an eye cream, but you may also do just as well applying your regular facial moisturizer around your eyes.

Jar Packaging: Yes
Tested on animals: No
