They have a lovely selection of products to choose from and offer custom skincare boxes that fit through the letterbox so you never have to worry about running out of product.
I have been testing the Eye Love Serum (£24.95 for 10 mls), if you have embraced oils for your face, hair and body but have yet to try an oil based eye serum, they are a real treat, especially for dry skin. This blend is simple but effective, containing Jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, olive squalene, carrot seed oil and Vitamin E. You will notice that the oils used are nice and light so they don’t overwhelm the eye area and you need only one drop split between both eyes. I love the ritual of taking the oil and patting it around the orbital bone, it absorbs easily but leaves the area plump and nourished. This can be used as a daily night time treatment or a few times a week as a skincare boost around the eyes.
Despite the small size of the bottle, this product will give you at least six months of use, so actually works out very economical and certainly is less expensive than some of the other eye serums in my collection. I like the lack of essential oils which I think is better for the delicate eye area. I find the product soothing and a joy to apply, my eye area always looks nourished and whilst it doesn’t specifically target dark circles, I find the application seems to make to make my eyes brighter in the morning. If you are finding eye creams don’t quite provide enough nourishment this would be the perfect product for you to try.
