One of the perks of being a Peachy Fox skin care writer is obviously getting to try these lovely products out!
For my first product, I got to test out the Marine Collagen Eye Gel and I wanted to share my opinion on it. Is it the best eye cream for Dark Circles?
The Marine Collagen Eye Gel is a gel made to awaken, transform and rejuvenate your eye area. It has amazing anti-ageing properties that deeply nourish and hydrate the skin. It can help improve dark circles, dryness and puffy under eyes which sound great to me!
As with all of our products the eye gel is completely clean and contains to nasties! This particular product contains aloe vera, green tea extract, Montana flower extract, hyaluronic acid, marine collagen, arnica oil, vitamin E and avocado oil. All of these incredible, natural products sink deep into the skin to provide intense nourishment leaving you with the feeling and appearance of healthier, plumper more hydrated skin.
Lot's of us suffer from dry, puffy or dark under eyes. Whether it's due to genes or just lack of sleep, we all want to do something about it! I, personally, suffer from very tired eyes. I'm very fortunate that even though I don't get the amount of sleep I should a week, don't have dark circles or bags. My under eye is dry usually year round but now we're in summer, and my hay fever is in full swing, I'm rather puffy too!
I've tried a few products for my under eyes and never really stuck to them. The skin around my eyes is extremely sensitive and every, yes every, cream or gel I've tried has burned it to shreds! I was really excited to try the Marine Collagen Eye Gel as it is completely natural I knew I shouldn't have a problem with sensitivity. This product is completely free of dyes, parabens and sulphate which gave me hope that it might actually work for me.
I haven't been using this long at all, just over a week. I've been applying it twice daily with my normal skin care routine and it fits in very nicely. I am absolutely loving using the eye gel. It's so soothing and refreshing, especially in the mornings when I'd rather be in bed still! It doesn't have a scent which is perfect for me as I do have sensitive skin. It has a thin but not too thin texture and melts into the skin very nicely. As with all products around your eye area you should pat this in and not rub! (see video how to apply here). It sinks in really nicely, it does stay tacky for a little while but no more than 7-10 minutes. It feels very hydrating and soft on the skin.
One thing I have noticed in the last week is the way my makeup sits under my eyes. I usually have problems with concealer creasing and powder looking very dry around my eyes. Since using this my makeup has applied so much smoother and, dare I say it, even lasted longer! The key to flawless makeup is the base of course!
The packaging of the product is light and extremely travel-friendly. It has a pump, hoorah! Why am I so excited about a pump? Hygiene! Using a pump rather than a pot ensures you aren't putting bacteria into the product from your fingers so less chance of any nasties causing infection and inflammation. You also get a whole 30ml of product in this bottle. That's double the 15ml standard size of any eye cream you get from brands selling tubes for triple the price of this. This retails at only £12.97 and trust me, it'll last you a long time as a little goes a long way.
