I’ve never had my eye care routine shared on the blog simply because… I’ve never had one as such. Shamefully, I admit that eye products have never been a regular part of my daily skincare routine, which means that I would buy an eye cream with a lot of enthusiasm and promises to myself. Still, after a couple of consistent uses, it would just sit in my bathroom cabinet until its expiration date. However, this time, I managed to stay consistent (more or less) with these two eye products. So, here are a few thoughts about them:
We Love Eyes Eyelid and Eyelash Makeup Remover Oil (10ml) is a pure blend of just three ingredients that not only remove dirt and makeup but also care for a gentle eye area. It contains jojoba seed oil, grape seed oil, and tea tree leaf oil. The tea tree oil is what gives the remover oil a pleasant herbal scent. One great thing about this Makeup Remover Oil is its packaging. It comes in a glass bottle with a handy pipette, which makes the product perfect for not wasting it. Also, it’s great for traveling.
Usually, I remove my eye makeup with any cleanser I use at that moment. Except, not all of them remove mascara equally good, so that’s when this Makeup Remover Oil comes in to help. I place a few drops on a cotton swab, press the swab on eyelash area allowing makeup to dissolve, then gently cleanse it all away with a cotton pad. That way it does remove makeup well without irritating my eyes. The Oil is light but still leaves an oily residue, which I need to remove with a clean pad or rinse with a cleanser. If you’re into makeup remover oils, I’d say this one is nice. However, I won’t repurchase it because using an additional remover just for the eyes is too much work for me.
I’ve already mentioned Wabi Sabi Botanicals Budhi Awaken Sacha Inchi Eye Nectar* in my organic skincare routine for spring. Almost eight months have passed since I started using it, and I’m down only to a third of the 10ml bottle. And believe me, I’ve been applying it pretty often (at least a few times a week). This is probably the only eye product that I use that religiously because I LOVE it to bits. It has the loveliest scent of coffee beans ever. Also, the results are pretty obvious after using this eye nectar. My under-eye area looks more hydrated and glowy and some fine lines got seriously reduced.
Do you use eye creams or oils? If yes, what are your favorites?
