NEW African Botanics Marula Résurrection Eye Crème | Review

I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would ever love an eye cream more than the original African Botanics Marula Résurrection Eye Crème (Reviewed HERE) since it has been my holiest of holy grail eye creams for me, but the NEW African Botanics Marula Résurrection Eye Crème is even better than the former version.

I have to make a very important point about what we have often come to expect with respect to product reformulations– so often when a product is reformulated it tends to lower the quality by using more filler ingredients to reduce the cost of production in order to maximize profits. Who among us hasn't seen a beloved go-to product change in this way. However, when African Botanics reimagines a product, the opposite is true. They spare no expense in their effort to find the best ingredients available, from their native South Africa, and the sole purpose in so doing is to make their products even more extraordinary and effective. African Botanics creates the most groundbreaking and visionary luxury green beauty products, and I assure you that there is nothing on the market like their products.
Marula Résurrection Eye Crème: The consistency of Résurrection Eye Crème is lightweight and fast absorbing, and this silky smooth cream absolutely melts into the skin in the most luxurious way imaginable. It has a silky, ultra-refined texture without any of the granular particles typically found in many Shea Butter- based products. Unlike the original eye cream, that was housed in a glass pot, this new eye cream comes in an elegant air-tight glass bottle with a pump. 

This beautiful eye cream is healing, hydrating and restorative– leaving the delicate eye area looking and feeling refreshed and youthful. This beautiful, and effective formula, plumps fine lines, lifts and nourishes the delicate skin around the eyes, deeply hydrates the skin, and leaves skin with an pronounced clarity and luminosity. The potent healthy ingredients, serious efficacy and superior texture make this eye cream such a joy to use. This luxe eye cream can be used day and night, and because the results are so astounding it is doubtful that you will ever want to use another eye cream. It is remarkably concentrated– therefore, only the smallest amount delivers enviable results, and therefore this bottle will last much longer than expected.

According to African Botanics,

Résurrection Eye Créme is an intensive highly concentrated formula that provides complete age defying care for the delicate eye area. This luxurious and velvety cream is supercharged with a carefully selected combination of the most advanced wrinkle-minimizing biotechnology, uniquely extracted rare African plants, antioxidant active molecules and resilient Laminaria Algae to renew skin cells, boost collagen and elastin production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring youthful density to the orbital area.


African Resurrection Plant extract – powerful antioxidant stimulates skin’s healthy collagen, elasticity and radiance. Maximises firmness with a lifting effect from Kigelia Africana, Resveratrol, Caffeine and Hibiscus extract. Evens skin tone and brightens with Vitamin C, Licorice Root, Niacinamide and CoQ10 while illuminating the eye area with Diamond Powder. Plumps and targets the appearance of wrinkles with peptides, restructuring oligosaccharides from “Blue Agave”, Hyaluronic Acid and botanical collagen booster from “Bulbine Frutescens.”
