Eye Creams by Pai, Super Facialist & Anatomicals

Eye Cream

Today I want to talk about some great eye products I’ve been using by Pai, Super Facialist and Anatomicals, all of which offer different solutions, from anti ageing to cooling and soothing.  I consider eye cream the most important skincare choice after moisturiser - and don’t doubt that others of a certain age will agree with me.  I’ve personally been using it since my early 20s, which I think is about right. 

The big guns don’t need to be rolled in early - I believe in keeping skincare as simple as possible: focusing on hydration and prevention of early lines until extra help is actually required.

I’ll begin with the anti-ageing products,  priorities and all that - two very natural products, suitable for sensitive eyes…

Pai Echium & Super Facialist Neroli Firming

Pai   Una Brennan Super Facialist Eye Cream

Pai echium anti-ageing eye cream

I’m a huge advocate of Pai skincare and you’ll often hear me rave about it. I’ve previously reviewed the Geranium & Thistle Moisturiser {here} and have great respect for founder, Sarah Brown, who has given me so much amazing skincare advice over the past year. 

Echium is a seed extract containing a rare form of omega 3 and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), both of which aid skin regeneration and smoothing.  This fine lotion feels gentle and soothing on my eyes and I love the hygienic pump.  I especially like to use this at night when my eyes feel tired (usually due to overuse of my laptop!) - I’ve been wakening with my eye area looking well rested and without puffiness.

£24 for 10ml at Paiskincare.com

 

Super Facialist by Una Brennan: Neroli Firming Illuminate Eye Cream

I’ve already raved about a couple of Una Brennan’s new ‘facial at home’ hydrating rose skincare products {here} and continue to love using them, so I was delighted to hear of her Eye Cream launch on August 13. It hasn’t disappointed either!

Infused with a host of natural ingredients including Aloe Vera, Cucumber Oil and Apple Stem Cells to target fine lines and hydrate.  The illumination comes from moisture replenishing Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter and Grapeseed Oil, to soothes, revives and brighten.  Dispensed from a thin nozzle, I love how this product feels on my skin and find that it really hydrates and brightens my eye area in the mornings.

I’m not sure of the exact role of the Neroli, but my research tells me it has smoothing properties and aids skin regeneration, all good stuff!

The price point for this product is superb: £11.99 for 15ml, exclusively at Boots from 13 August 2012.

 

Anatomicals Eye Gel & Regenerating Eye Cream

Anatomicals Regenerist & No Old Bags Eye Cream

Anatomicals offers two great value options to moisturise and refresh anti the eye area. The quirky branding and packaging for this company always brings a smile to my face.

no old bags allowed eye gel is great for cooling, soothing and de-puffing, whether you’re suffering from the heat or a night on the tiles.  Keep it in the fridge or cool bag for maximum ahhhh… effect.  A suitcase staple if you’re lucky enough to be heading off on holiday!

‘eye cream, you scream, we all scream for eye cream’ (try saying that fast!) regenerating eye cream is gently moisturising for daily use.  While it may not have quite enough oopmh for this old bag, I think late teens or early 20s would love this product. Better still you can slip it in with your clothes shopping from asos.

no old bags eye gel £3.10 for 15ml at asos.com

‘you scream’ regenerating eye cream £4.70 for 15ml at asos.com
