Paula has often said that eye creams aren’t necessary if you have a quality moisturizer, but some of us love eye creams. So she created an eye cream for those of us who use them. This eye cream is loaded up with pretty fantastic ingredients. Peptides are great because they’re supposed to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Licorice Root is good for anti-aging, as is resveratrol. Shea butter is an amazing moisturizing butter.
I love the packaging beccause it’s simple and effective. It’s a squeeze tube so you can get out an exact amount of product. The eye cream has a thick texture that is ultra hydrating and absorbs pretty quickly into the skin. I apply it by patting it on gently with my ring finger. I’d previously been using the Moisture Boost Cream as an eye cream but it wasn’t moisturizing enough for me.
This eye cream can be used day or night, but I stick to night. If you’re using it during the day make sure you use SPF on top of it. You can also mix in Paula’s Choice Moisture Renewal Oil Booster, Hyaluronic Acid Booster, Josie Maran’s Argan Oil or Cover FX Jasmine or Neroli drops if you want to. All of these have mixed in fine for me.
I really love the texture of this eye cream. While it certainly works well on its own and I used it on its own for the first few weeks, I started experimenting with mixing in some of my favorite skincare drops. I love it both ways. My eyelids are oily, but under the eye area gets dry like the Sahara Desert. So I try to load up on moisture under the eyes. During the day, I can’t use too rich of an eye cream under the eyes or it will travel to my eyelids and make my eyeshadow disappear. So I prefer thick eye creams like this at night.
Overall, I’m happy to see Paula’s Choice release this eye cream and it’s become a staple in my nighttime routine. If you’re looking for a moisturizing eye cream, I definitely think this is one to check out.
