When it comes to preventing signs of ageing around your eyes, eye cream should be your first point of call. But finding the right eye cream can be a tricky task, especially if you have sensitive eyes, or specific skin concerns you’re trying to navigate around. But don’t worry, I'm here to help, and I've got the perfect recommendation (and trust me - this product is a game changer!) the Klairs Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter!
How To Use:
- Apply toner after cleansing.
- At your moisturiser step, apply an adequate amount of the product around your eyes.
- Finish your routine with a face moisturiser.
Your eyes are one of the most looked-at features on your face. They’re also one of the first places you can start to show signs of things like lack of sleep, or ageing. So how can you combat those dark circles or fine lines that have started to appear? With a nourishing eye cream (or eye-butter!) of course!
The Klairs Nourishing Eye Butter claims to ‘protect the skin around your eyes…while a combination of four high-performance peptides improve fine lines and wrinkles’. So what exactly are peptides?
Peptides are basically chains of amino-acids which make up certain proteins your skin needs to stay looking bright, tight, and youthful! So basically, using peptides on your skin helps your body to produce skin cells that are healthy, plump and glowing. This Eye Butter also contains antioxidant-rich Green Tea (also known for its nourishing and firming properties), anti-inflammatory powerhouse Cinnamon Bark, and Caffeine to help reduce puffiness. The combination of these incredible ingredients creates the ultimate in skin protection and rejuvenation.
When it comes to eye creams I am a SNOB. I’m super picky about how the product feels on my oily-combination skin, and my eyes are super sensitive. I also refuse to pay massive amounts of money on a product when I don't know how it will perform on my skin. But let me tell you, I LOVE this eye butter!
Let’s start off with the texture. It’s silky smooth and melts into the skin like… you guessed it, butter! It’s also ridiculously hydrating without feeling heavy or greasy which I love. I’ve also found that because this product is fragrance- and alcohol-free, it doesn’t irritate my, usually very sensitive, eyes at all.
The other thing that really shocked me about this product is the fact that it actually helps to reduce fine lines and help to protect thin skin! Whilst I don't have lots of wrinkles, I had noticed some areas around my eyes were beginning to show small lines (which I was NOT happy about) and I've always struggled with deathly-thin skin under my eyes. But after using this eye butter, for just a couple of weeks, I noticed that the fine lines had completely disappeared! And on top of that, for the first time in my life, the skin under my eyes didn’t feel papery-thin. Instead it now feels nourished and plump, which is honestly incredible.
As this Eye Butter is so nourishing and hydrating, I've actually started using it on other areas of my face that are needing a hydrating boost. And the neat, compact packaging means it’s perfect for keeping in my bag for on-the-go hydration.
If you’re looking for an eye cream product that will plump, hydrate and reduce lines - without irritation, greasiness (or a hefty price tag!) I seriously cannot recommend this Eye Butter enough. So next time you’re stocking up on skin care goodies, add this to your cart - you won’t regret it!
