ever on the lookout for that elusively perfect eye cream, i test more than my fair share. but when relastin’s eye silk arrived, i had to stop and take note.
i requested this one initially because it received the editors’ beauty award for best eye cream from allure magazine for the third year straight. i figured there must be something good going on there. but even if it didn’t do a thing for my eyes, i was utterly fascinated by it from my first use. the texture is crazy unique: it literally does feel like silk! it comes out of the pump looking sort of like a cream/gel hybrid, but on contact, it warms and softens and disappears almost instantly into your skin. i actually ran out and forced some onto my hubs’ hand the moment i tried it, yelling “you have to feel this!” (i know, he should be the one with a blog. all about his bat crazy wife.)
anyway. cool science special effects notwithstanding, i can also say i think this has done a great job of keeping fine lines at bay, and generally keeping my eye area happy. also, i love that i can put it on and there’s no feeling of eye cream under my eyes, as with most other products. i haven’t noticed huge changes on the dark circle front, but i’m starting to believe my aesthetician’s claim that they’re genetic, so i’m essentially hosed.
if you’re intrigued, it will set you back $69 (though it’s a relatively large bottle, and will last you at least six months). and i did track down a 20% off code for you at skinstore.com – use SPRING20 when you order. hey, every little bit helps!
