When it comes to skincare, there are certain products you can cheap out on (I’m looking at you sheet masks) whilst you want to throw your cash behind others (namely face and eye creams). Basically, if you take off a product within an hour of applying it, you don’t need to spend a tonne on it. Eye cream, however, is an investment. Since the skin around your eyes is the thinnest anywhere on the body, it’s susceptible to wear and tear, and for me, it’s the first spot which starts to look puffy if I don’t get enough sleep, or if I go a little heavy on the carbs or salty food.
For the past decade or so, I’ve gone to bed wearing eye cream each night, but I’ve started dotting a little cream under my eyes in the morning too, and I’ve noticed that despite tapping away in front of a laptop all day, my eyes don’t feel as dried out or tried, and they look smoother too. My most recent eye cream of choice has been the Filorga NCEF Reverse Eyes – a formula which feels lovely and lightweight, smells amazing and beats the signs of ageing too!
With a light, almost gel-like consistency, this feels like the perfect choice for summer skincare. It’s not gloopy or sticky, and it smoothes into skin beautifully. It’s got a light, slightly floral scent, and once it’s on, the skin around the eyes feels silky smooth. It means than skin feels properly primed for makeup – I can smooth on my Glossier Stretch concealer, dust with bronzer and be out the door within a few minutes.
As if the texture wasn’t glorious enough – the Filorga NCEF Reverse Eyes cream is a product packed full of skin science. Reverse Eyes works to stimulate regeneration of the eye area, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness – and really, who doesn’t want that? Just tapping the formula into the skin around the under-eyes delivers anti-ageing actives deep into the skin, transporting a powerful blend of Hyaluronic acid, collagen, vitamin C, escin and caffeine to deeply moisturise, plump, brighten and tauten the delicate skin surrounding the eyes.
Filorga NCEF Reverse Eyes is priced at £55 and is available here
