The Ingredient List Is Extensive
It goes without saying that Augustinus Bader The Eye Cream, $161.25 includes the perfect dose of TFC8® for the delicate skin around your eye area. The formula also contains plenty of other skincare powerhouse ingredients, including vitamin C to brighten and smooth, sodium hyaluronate and plant-based squalane to hydrate, and edelweiss extract to help tighten.
Having been using The Eye Cream alongside The Cream for the past month, I’ve noticed that the area looks significantly brighter on my video calls, and it feels softer and suppler. My findings are aligned with the user trials the brand held. After 12 weeks of use, 99% of testers noted that their skin felt more hydrated and 97% felt that the texture had improved. In true Augustinus Bader form, the brand also performed clinical trials which found that skin hydration improved by 291% after 12 weeks, while visual skin radiance improved by 296% over the same time-period.
The Texture Is Next Level
During the week I spend a lot of time either staring at a screen and at the weekend I’m usually found outside looking after, or riding, my horses come rain or shine. While my skin is general tends to be on oilier side, around my eyes it can feel quite dry. As a result, I like a creamy rather than gel texture eye cream. Augustinus Bader The Eye Cream has a light, buttery texture that feels instantly soothing and hydrating. I’ve noticed that my concealer is much easier to blend after using this, I don’t get any caking or streaking.
One pump is the perfect amount for both eyes and I use my ring finger to gently pat it onto skin. I always find that following your eye socket as a guide helps to press it under and above your eye area. It absorbs quickly, so you don’t have to wait to apply your moisturiser or concealer.
The Packaging Is As Sustainable As It Is Luxurious
While the formula and texture are important, anyone who has used any Augustinus Bader products will know it’s going to deliver results. What has impressed me the most about this eye cream is the attention to detail around the packaging. The glass tube style bottle is wrapped in a 100% sustainable metal casing that makes is travel-friendly. If you’re at home, it can take pride of place in the gorgeous and refillable glass holder. Together The Eye Cream and Augustinus Bader The Serum, $281.25 are revolutionising how luxury skincare should be packaged up.
