Product Review: EmerginC Eyelight Eye CreamWednesday, April 11, 2012
Happy hump day, girlies! I am reviewing a product from New York skincare brand EmerginC today - the EmerginC Eyelight Eye Cream, to be exact!
EmerginC: An active, nourishing cream with super-antioxidant astaxanthin, Derm SRC™ with bamboo and pea extracts, Aquacell™ with watermelon rind and lentil extracts, grape stem cells, apple extract, rose hip, olive oil, shea butter and more, designed to fight the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and under-eye circles, while hydrating and brightening.Packaging
This came boxed, with a glass jar and a screw on top. The quality of the packaging is impeccable, but I would have liked it if the design of the packaging reflected better the prestige and luxury of the product.
I did, however, really enjoy the PR packaging that it came in - it was such a small touch but it made a wonderful impression! There were small little grapes filling the box in which the cream was contained. Love it!
The eye cream is light and spreads easily. It takes a few minutes to really absorb into the skin, but once it does, it doesn't leave any trace of greasiness on the skin.
It smells citrusy, which isn't quite surprising, given that the cream is from a brand called emerginC! The smell is slightly stronger than 'subtle', so if you are sensitive to smells, you were warned.
I think this is a great eye cream if you're looking for something to combat early signs of wrinkles or fine lines. It is hydrating, and sits well underneath makeup. I have noticed that my undereye area is more hydrated, and the skin underneath my eye has never been in better condition. It has reduced my undereye puffiness slightly, but not completely.
Overall, I think this is a fantastic product. There are only two things that I am unsure of with this product:
- I didn't find that the darkness underneath my eyes was lightened - they remain the same.
- The $65 price tag is a little much, especially for someone with my budget.
