I tweeted a few weeks ago about a new eye area skin care product that I had been using for just a few days but already felt really impressed with. I’ve now been using this for about a month and feel ready to share my thoughts on it after a decent amount of time!
The product in question is Radical Skincare Eye Revive Creme – as you have probably guessed from the pictures – and it’s a lightweight but packs a powerful punch moisturiser for the eye area. The creme promises to reduce wrinkles, dark circle and puffiness. With specific claims of ‘Decreases discolouration and dark circles up to 19%, Decrease wrinkle depth by 50% in 4 weeks, Instantly hydrate and detoxify and Repair the sensitive skin to reduce puffiness’.
For me, my main issue with my eye area is fine lines that are largely down to dehydration – so I’m looking for an eye cream that will deliver instant hydration (and plumping effect as a result) that lasts throughout the day. Many a cream before I have found they always deliver an instant pop of moisture but it tends to deplete rather quickly over the day and not last as long as I want.
This one certainly delivers on the instant hydration boost – it feels really impressively light to use. When you pat on it just soaks in like my eye area is a bone-dry sponge and this is a cool glass of water. It feels really lovely to use – very much that it absorbs and soaks in quickly and leaves it feeling like its just perfectly hydrated but not with any residue, just silky soft feeling skin.
For me the main test is how well it lasts over the day – and this one has truly impressed me. Over the day my skin definitely feels far more hydrated than it normally does. This really has me impressed – the eye area looks instantly fresher and this freshness lasts despite being in front of a screen for what feels like a million hours a day.
The only downside to this – the fact that this little tube of wonder costs £80 for 15ml. Not cheap by anyones standards – one small pump does go a long way and I will be working to make this last as long as I can because I am so impressed with this.
