[Aloe Eye Defence, £9.50, The Body Shop]
So this is my first beauty review. Yay!
I'm quite simple when it comes to my skin routine but I recently started investing into some products from The Body Shop after getting my 'Love your body' card.
I have mildly sensitive skin and during the Summer [and sometimes during especially cold Winter months] experience very dry and tight skin around my eyes. Before I found this I mainly used Vaseline lightly around the eye area before bed but found it too heavy for general use.
I've used Aloe skin creams before so I decided to try out this one after reading some good reviews online. I've now been using it for about a week, both in the morning and before I go to bed, using a small amount under my eye and over the lid.
I am feeling some difference already, my upper eyelids and under eye areas feel less tight and more moisturised. The corner of my eye, where I experience the most dry-ness and irritation, is slowly soothing out but I think I'll need more regular usage for it to reach the standard of the rest of the area. The cream itself is light, actually feels quite refreshing once it's on and absorbs quickly.
The main advantage is no irritation, something that was very important when considering the area I would be using it on. The bottle is only 15ml for £9.50 [I also got some money off with my 'Love your body' card], but when you consider the tiny amount you'll need to use around the eye area I would say that it is worth buying.
Keep on wishing...
