Eye creams.... those pesky eye creams. Do we really need them? At what age should we consider this "right of passage"? Isn't eye creme just super expensive moisturizer? I mean, what is so special that makes 1 oz worth $50+? Did they add gold flakes? I recently had the opportunity to try Valentia True Glow Eye Cream. In all honesty, I probably wouldn't have ever purchased this myself, but I'm glad I tried it.
In a sea of eye creams, how do you pick the right one? It's impossible to try them all. My strategy would be to start trying eye creams in your price range that have lots of 5 star reviews. Customer reviews are a great tool to rely on. Valencia True Glow Eye Cream currently has 114 reviews with 86% of them at 5 stars and 14% of them at 4 stars. Not bad, not bad.
Valentia True Glow Eye Cream is supposed to help with puffiness, wrinkles, and dark circles. Luckily, I've never had a problem with dark circles or wrinkles, but puffiness is another story. You know how your eyes swell up after you cry? Yeah, I look like that every morning when I wake up. Lucky, right?
I've been using this eye creme for 4 days. The first time I tried it, it had a very orange zesty scent and when I dabbled it around my eyes, its burned for about 2 seconds. The pain went away quickly. I determined that there was a chemical reaction between the creme and my makeup remover, because the creme didn't burn my eyes when I used it in the morning. I used it morning and night for 4 days. My make-up went over it smoothly. It didn't feel oily or dry out my skin. I definitely notice that my skin feels more hydrated around my eyes throughout the day. I will continue to use it and hopefully see the results improve more over the next few weeks. There will be lots of flying and driving from Minnesota to Seattle to San Diego as we move, so this creme will be put through quite the test of climate changes. More on this later!
PS Valentia True Glow Eye Cream is on sale at Amazon right now for $24.99 (normally $54.99), so now is the time to try it! Get it HERE.
