As I’ve mentioned many times on the blog, Lavera is one of my favorite brands as the quality of its products is amazing. Lately, I’ve been trying out this Illuminating Eye Cream with pearl extract and caffeine. I’ll start by saying that this is probably the first time when I actually see instant results when using an eye cream. But more on that later.
The product won German Glammy 2016 award in organic beauty category, and I can easily see why. The Illuminating Eye Cream looks and works great! Speaking about packaging, the design of this standard 15 ml tube seems well thought out. A big thumbs up to Lavera for coming up with new product and design updates.
The Illuminating Eye Cream contains a variety of valuable oils and extracts such as:
- organic camellia leaf extract
- organic aloe vera leaf juice
- organic coffee seed extract and caffeine
- hyaluronic acid
- organic sweet almond oil
- organic shea butter
- hydrolyzed pearl
These ingredients provide hydration and firmness for your sensitive under-eye area.
Illuminating Eye Cream has a pearly, light-reflecting shimmer to it, which comes from mica. Its soft and velvety texture makes the cream application easy and pleasant. It takes a few minutes to absorb into the skin, but when it does, it doesn’t leave any stickiness behind.
I love the effect this eye cream provides. Though, it doesn’t cover dark circles or reduce puffiness, it works partly as a highlighter by illuminating the skin and making me look more refreshed and rested. Here’s how the consistency looks on my hand. Excuse the amount of the cream, I wanted the camera to pick up on that shimmer:
