Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream Review
Bobbi Brown's Hydrating Eye Cream is a really quick absorbing super moisturizing eye cream that is a solid performer. It isn't a super rich and thick formula- which is a plus for me since those types of eye creams nearly always give me milia. This eye cream keeps my delicate under eye area hydrated all day long- even if I apply concealer. When I use it at night my eyes are always hydrated, moisturized, and appear refreshed the following morning. I think that Bobbi Brown's skincare line is often overlooked and overshadowed by her makeup line, but she really makes some high quality, no frills, pleasant to use, and last but not least effective products for the face and body. In truth, I have yet to be disappointed by anything that I have tried from her skincare range of products. She makes no unreasonable claims, and offers no unattainable fountain of youth promises. Instead, Bobbi Brown offers hardworking basic products that clean, moisturize, exfoliate, tone, protect from the sun, along with a few straight forward and effective serums.
According to Bobbi Brown,
This quick-absorbing eye cream delivers naturally-occurring humectants that melt into the skin, leaving the eye area soft, smooth and refreshed for up to 24 hours. A perfect level of emollients imparts a lightweight texture, allowing concealer to glide on evenly - Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel Extract soothe and comfort; Jojoba Seed, Avocado Oil and Squalane condition and revive continuously.
Overall assessment: I am really surprised by how much I like this eye cream. That it hasn't given me any milia is a must to keep it in my rotation, but I somehow thought that it was going to fall short and truthfully it hasn't.
