Is This $180 Eye Cream Worth the Splurge?


As irony would have it, the eyes are the window to the soul but also one of the first areas of skin to show signs of aging. This eye cream won’t be able to change that sad fact of life, but it can help smooth the look of wrinkles and fine lines, brighten the appearance of under-eye circles, and minimize puffy-looking eyelids. It is formulated with Obsidian Mineral Complex, combined with the brightening and smoothing optical properties of highly concentrated Expanded Obsidian. What’s more, the jar comes equipped with a slide out mirror that can help finesse your application virtually anywhere. I love how easily the formula glides on without leaving behind a sticky, greasy residue. And thanks to the compact mirror, it’s super easy to use while I’m traveling and on the go—note: eye cream is a must have in your carry-on ladies!

To use, spread a little product onto your ring fingertip. Apply using smoothing movements over the upper eyelid and lower eyelid from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eyes. Pay close attention to areas that need extra attention, like crow’s feet for instance.
