I've been religiously using an eye cream on a daily basis for the past 5 years or so now. I started off with one from SkinCeuticals, which retailed for over £100 and was sent to me as part of my first Beauty Bible package to test and review. I liked it, but there was no way I was spending that much money on a skincare product, so when it ran out I began to look for an affordable alternative.
I decided to try Cliniques All About Eyes after it was repeatedly mentioned in recommendations. I don't have a bad word to say about this product, my favourite being the All About Eyes Rich version. It has kept the skin around my eyes hydrated and smooth and performed extremely well . Retailing at £22, I shimmied on over to Ebay where I found it much cheaper and dutifully repurchased this over and over again working my way through at least 5 pots.
Last Winter as my latest pot was coming to an end, I decided to research what else was out there on the market. Using an eye cream was now a permanent fixture in my skincare routine and I eventually settled on Garnier UltraLift Firming eye cream.
Part of the The Garnier UltraLift Anti-Wrinkle range, the UltraLift Firming Eye Cream contains Pure Ginger Extract which helps to depuff skin and leave it feeling firmer and looking smoother. Garnier claim you'll see a difference after an hour which is far-fetched in my opinion, but this cream does work well for me keeping the skin around my eyes well moisturised and free from wrinkles and has performed beyond my expectations for a high street skincare product.
My 15ml tube has lasted 8 months which I think is fantastic value for money. Looking at the tube, I never imagined it would last this amount of time. The nozzle allows the product to dispense easily and you only need a small amount for each eye. It's currently being sold for £4.45 in Superdrug so now's an ideal time to try it out if you're tempted.
How much is it? £9.29
Where can I buy it from? Boots, Superdrug (currently on offer in Superdrug)
