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.
