I am kind of OBSESSED with this eye balm! Used it last night for the first time and it has already made a difference! It goes on super smooth and doesn’t feel greasy like most eye cremes do. This morning I noticed that my eyes were less puffy, my fine lines were MUCH less noticeable and my dark circles (although not gone by any means) were less noticeable.
I took a look at the label and as far as I can tell, this is how it works! The balm is jam packed with all of the most gentle humectant and moisturizing ingredients, which are what make it safe enough to use on the eye area but powerful enough to show results!
Just to list a few key ingredients!
Aqua- Obvi :)
Rose water- The by-product of producing pure rose oil is a gentle effective moisturizer
Glycerine- a wonderful humectant draws moisture to the skin and is used mainly as a means of improving smoothness, providing lubrication!
Shea butter extract- a major moisturizer
Ruscus Aculeatus root extract- has been known to enhance blood flow to the brain, legs, and hands. It has been used to relieve water retention and improve circulation!
Obvi, I am not going to list them all, but these few give you an idea of what is going on inside this adorable little blue jar and exactly why it’s worth the splurge of $35 for .5oz… which in the world of eye creme is actually pretty reasonable! But don’t just take my word for it, stop into your local L'OCCITANE and ask for a sample to try before you buy!
