Like the other items in the bare Minerals collection, this has a luxurious feel without being thick or greasy. There is no heavy perfume, either.
- While this isn’t a miracle worker that’s going to make 40-year-old eyes suddenly pass for 20-year-old eyes, it does seem to slow down the aging process a bit. In other words, it’s not going to repair all the damage time has done over the years, but it may hold off the appearance of future damage once you start using it. The earlier, the better, I’d say.
- Some heavier eye creams will actually cause you to wake up puffy-eyed, or even with a fine film over your vision from the cream getting in your eyes from rubbing against the pillow, melting into the corners, whatever. This one does neither.
- It works nicely under makeup, as long as you give it 10 to 15 minutes to sink in.
- As far as decent eye creams go, $28 for a tube isn’t a bad price, especially since you don’t need to use very much at a time.
- Again, this treatment isn’t going to miraculously reverse the aging process. In my experience, however, those that claim to do so either don’t do what they claim or give me a rash anyway.
- And, my usual gripe about many products for sensitive skin: no sun protection. Most skin care companies seem to have phased out sunscreen around the eyes over the past few years, so in this case it isn’t as big a deal. Plus, it’s an excuse to pick up a really great pair of sunglasses!
