Boots Expert Sensitive Hydrating Eye Cream Review

MY EYES ARE SO DRY! Seriously, I don’t know what is happening right now. Underneath my eyes is so dry and red and flaky. On my one eye, my eyelid is even dry. This hasn’t been the case before; before they were just normal dry, now they are extreme. That means I can talk about this Boots eye cream under various eye conditions. 😛

Under normal conditions:
When I was struggling with standard dryness under my eyes, this cream worked great. It kept my eye area moisturized without feeling too greasy. It absorbs quickly and it doesn’t sting my eyes. I also didn’t find that it made my concealer crease. I could easily apply makeup on top of this product with no negative consequences. Something that the packaging claims is that it reduces fine lines. I have some fine lines under my eyes (I apparently smile too much :P). To be honest, I didn’t notice any real difference on that front.

Under these ridiculously dry conditions:
This eye cream is nice to have, no doubt. It’s the only one I have so it has to do, but it isn’t really helping. It keeps my eyes soothed for an hour or so, but it isn’t actually making it better long-term. My eyelid and undereyes are still so dry.

So, if you have mild dryness under and around your eyes, I’d recommend this eye cream. However, if you are having severe dryness, you might want to opt for something different.

What do you recommend for severe dry eyes? I’m going to get my butt to the Origins store ASAP to see if they can help me out, but I’d still be interested in some recommendations from you guys!

I bought this myself. All opinions are my own. I’m not getting paid for this post.

  1. I am just now venturing into the area of eye creams, because my eyes are getting drier as well do to hormones. I have been using the Garnier eye depuffing gel, but it just doesn’t cut it anymore. I am thinking of buying a yes to product eye cream, since heard good things about the line and I cannot afford origins when I am in a fix. You should definitely post about the Origins product, if you get it. 🙂

      I don’t know why but Yes To has never really impressed me. I haven’t had a bad experience, but I just find them to be a bit expensive and overhyped. If you do try one, let me know how you get on with it!

  2. I think sweet almond oil which you can get at bigger grocery stores for $4-$8 depending on the size and it’d be stocked by the essential oils/and natural skin care stuff or Seventh Generation Boosts are the BEST for moisturizing. The boosts are the first product that ended that “dryness cycle” for me….they don’t contain a bunch of recommended ingredients like glycerin, shea or ceramides but they moisturize well and I have no issues with it effecting my makeup application after it absorbs. I’ve been using them almost 2 years now I think and my skin has changed. I recommend them. I get the Boosts at Walgreens but you can buy them online, I try to wait for a sale otherwise they’re around $10 or more. The bottles look small but they last forrrrrrrrrrrever.

    Try the daily moisture stick by Elf. It is great to dab on under our eyes periodically during the day . It does not mess up you makeup and it does not sting. I keep one on my nightstand.

      I have seen this floating around on YouTube. The only concern I have is that it won’t be strong enough for my current problems.
