Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream Review

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream Review FloralesqueI am always on the search for the perfect eye cream as it is a beauty product that I cannot seem to find a product worthy of Holy Grail status. As I enter my 30’s and I am more conscious than ever of little fine lines that I can see developing. I want to try and keep them at bay and avoid deep set wrinkles!

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream is a delightfully lightweight and easily absorbed eye cream that did feel luxurious when I applied it and as you can see below – I used it all up! A little does go a long way with this cream and you need to try and strike the balance between using enough product and avoiding clogging the area by loading with product.

What the Bobbie Brown says;

  • A quick-absorbing eye cream with moisturisers that melt onto the skin.
  • This cult-favourite cream leaves the eye area soft, smooth, and refreshed for up to 24 hours.
  • Formulated with Bobbi’s signature Enriched Mineral Water Blend to hydrate, balance and revive skin. Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel extract comfort, while Jojoba Seed, Avocado Oil, and Squalane condition.

And now onto my review of this eye cream;

Texture / Consistency
This is a lightweight eye cream that does not sit heavy on the delicate eye area. It soaks in quickly and for that reason I found it good under concealer.

Packaging
This some in a small plastic jar with a screw top lid. It is very travel friendly in the 50ml size though loses points with me for hygiene reasons as there is no pump but this would not stop me repurchasing.

PROS
• It is lightweight and absorbs in quickly into my skin
• It doesn’t clog my pores (so long as you do not over load the product) – a little goes a long way
• I do have a sensitive eye area and this product did not cause me any issues.
• Also – no shimmer. It doesn’t try and hide any dark circles by adding shimmer – but it does help with puffiness and my skin certainly felt softer.

CONS
• It comes in a pot and for hygiene reasons I wish it came with a pump as even though my hands are washed before putting them into the pot I still feel like I am transferring germs into it
• It is fantastic as bringing down the puffiness around my eyes but I don’t feel like it helps with my dark circles/brightening. Since you can always use a concealer this doesn’t really matter to me but it may to others (hence why a con!)

Would I repurchase?
Yes I would do so in the future, however I have since purchased a Korres eye cream that I am trialling. It is my first Korres product so I am looking forward to seeing how I go with it.

Perhaps my expectations of an eye cream is too high… I know that no eye cream can reverse aging or fine lines but I am still on the search for my Holy Grail eye cream! I would recommend that this is worth a try though it does have a slightly higher price point than drug store eye creams so perhaps ask for a sample first before you commit to buying the full size.

What is your favourite eye cream? Do you do as I do and try many or is there one that you love? I would really appreciate any recommendations!
