My Prime Skincare- Weightless Eye Cream- REVIEW

My Weightless Eye Cream is an unbelievably effective, comfortable, and soothing eye cream that is simultaneously deeply nourishing and moisturizing while remaining feather light. Eye creams are very very tricky for me because finding one that isn't too rich, and that doesn't give me milia is always a huge challenge. It is for this very reason that I don't often sample new eye creams. However, I can say without reservation that My Weightless Eye Cream is one of the very few eye creams that sinks in quickly, leaves no trace, deeply hydrates my skin, and drum roll please...it does not give me milia! It really has done wonders for my dark circles by lightening them, and also addresses under eye puffiness on the rare occasions that it occurs. I have noticed that the overall texture of my under eye area is smooth, and unmistakably hydrated. It feels wonderful on, but because it sinks in quickly you do not have to wait to apply your makeup. I actually add a small amount to my concealer as well-- making the concealer even more emollient. After more than a month of daily and nightly use I definitely noticed that my eyes looked fabulous. This is truly an extraordinary eye cream, and definitely one of the best that I have ever used (and I have used so many).

All five My products are amazing thoughtfully and purposefully produced skincare products that are delightful to use! They are produced with great care and integrity, and it shows. For an overview of the products and company click here. For my review of  My Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer click here. This is one line that you can really feel good about using because the products are safe and cruelty-free. Additionally, My has integrity and is profoundly engaged in social responsibility initiatives. I not only believe in My products, but in the philanthropic vision imagined by Tessa.
According to My: "This innovative formula defies the notion that eye cream must feel heavy to be effective.  Performing well under makeup, this lightweight wonder leaves eyes looking bright and refreshed."

Benefits:
-Revitalizes tired-looking eyes
-Lightens dark circles and relieves puffiness
-Reduces the look of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and crow’s feet
The Key Science & Research employed by My for Weightless Eye Cream

REGU®-AGE: A botanical complex that uses purified soy and rice peptides plus yeast proteins to improve microcirculation, target dark circles and puffiness, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and crow’s feet.

Research Results:
In an independent, eight-week clinical study, 80% of subjects agreed that this product helped improve the overall appearance of the skin around the eyes.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Oxido Reductases, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Ceteareth-20, Glyceryl Dilaurate, Mangosteen Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid.

My's founder and CEO, Tessa Yutadco, has implemented social responsibility initiatives that were specifically designed to improve the lives of the Filipino women and men who harvest and extract the Pili and Moringa oils used in most of the My products (read more here). It is also important to note that the Pili and Moringa oils are sustainably harvested, and are grown without fertilizers or pesticides. Unlike so many skincare companies, My is uncompromising in the commitment to quality ingredients, healthy products, social responsibility, and transparency in everything they do. It is for these reasons, coupled with the sheer quality of the products, that I am so excited to have found My! Did I mention that My is CRUELTY FREE?!

Tessa takes her social responsibility initiatives very seriously, and as proof of this she has announced the following new partnership: August 8, 2012 through September 8, 2012 My will be donating 50% of the proceeds from ALL My purchases to Best Buddies International! Image source. My is one of the few companies out there that is ideologically in tune with the big picture-- not just in terms of providing the highest quality skincare, but also in terms of an innate awareness and respect of the needs of the world around us. Tessa really believes in both nurturing the skin, but more importantly in nurturing the planet and those who call it home. I absolutely believe in My, and in Tessa.
Overall assessment: This is a fantastic eye cream, period! It is light, it sinks in quickly, and it is more effective than heavy eye creams that just sit there. Don't assume that because this is a lightweight eye cream that it is ineffective-- this is a heavyweight contender, and it can stand up to the best eye creams on the market today! I am so thrilled with the results, and just can't say enough good things about this company and Tessa herself.

  1. This eye cream sounds amazing! And I LOVE the philosophy behind the brand.

    My main concern when looking for an eye cream is that it's very very hydrating--but I agree that it's really hard for me to find one that intensely hydrates without being too rich and causing milia (I have a few on my lids right now from the Boscia one I just tried out :/). This one sounds so lovely and in that swatch, it looks so light and refreshing! I really want to try this one!

    1. Hi Becca!! I find this very hydrating, and not in the least bit greasy or difficult to work with. Milia is a HUGE problem for me with richer eye creams- my eyes will look good for a few days then BAM little milia farms set up residence under my eyes. I can't stand it! This has given me no milia whatsoever, and I feel hydrated and moisturized. That said, I am not dry under my eyes. However, this is so high quality and moisturizing that I can't imagine that you would feel under moisturized. Your experience with the Boscia eye cream doesn't sound at all fun!! It is super refreshing. I really love it!

  3. I had high hopes for this product. The description sounded like exactly what I needed--dark circle reduction and fine line erasing power.

    1. Hi Sarah, Have you tried it yet? You speak in the past tense as though you have and were disappointed with it. If so, why? I have found it to be a remarkably gentle and effective eye cream. It has worked wonders on my dark circles, and has definitely improved the texture of my under eye area. I really love this eye cream.

  7. Using at least two slices of cucumber to place on your eyelids is also one of the best ways on how to get rid of dark circles.
