Here’s a blogpost I did for Cleo’s online community. Still pretty new there, but you can always drop me a visit. :)
When I saw this little tube featured in Beauty SOS spread (Pg 66) in the March’s issue of Cleo, I thought I could do a review for readers who might be interested to get it.
Himalaya Herbals’ Under Eye Cream 15ml
If you’re plagued by dark eye circles and under eye puffiness, this could be a god-send. Stress, lack of sleep, bad dieting habits, and hormonal changes can lead to poor blood micro-circulation under your eyes, causing dark eye circles. Plus, the skin under the eyes is very delicate and thin, so after years of putting on eye make-up and removing them with cotton pads, you might not even be surprised that wrinkles are starting to form (yikes!).
This mighty tube of eye cream contains a natural blend of herbal actives that promises to clear under eye circles, pigmentation and blemishes. It also brightens and smoothen the area.
- Cipadessa baccifera moisturizes
- Bergenia ligulata lightens
- Triticum vulgare nourishes
$19.90 at Watson’s
I had this cream for quite a while now, when I bought it during Watson’s members’ sale. Got it at an unbelievable price of $9.90! What a steal, and it proved to deliver the results that it promised. After two nights of applying the cream to my under eye, I could see that the area was indeed less puffy and smoother. However, after two weeks of continuous application, the improvements were not as great as before. I think most probably my under eye has reached its limit to be ‘saved’, and has gotten accustomed to the cream. So I stopped using it.
After one month of not using the cream, my dark eye bags are back (glooms…). I’m planning to start using it again.
How to apply:
Squeeze about the size of a grain of rice of cream onto your fourth finger.
Massage lightly onto the under eye area.
Note: Using your fourth finger to handle the delicate eye area can reduce the force applied and prevent tugging on the skin.
This unique blend of herbal actives is actually filed for patent in the US, and to me, if something has to be patented; it’s gotta be good to prevent others from copying, right? Haha.
