One of the biggest beauty secrets my mom told me is to take care of my skin. This year, I’m turning 25 and it feels imperative to prioritize finalizing my skincare routine. I’ve got the basics: cleanser, moisturizer, toner, and sunscreen but I feel it’s about time to target my problem areas such as my under-eyes. Because I’m a night owl, my eyes are usually my problem. I’ve tried countless serums but I still haven’t found the one, the most recent is Nature Republic’s Eye Serum. Here’s what I think about this serum:
Nature Republic’s Aloe Vera Cooling Eye Serum is “a lightweight, hydrating serum that refreshes as it nourishes the delicate skin around the eyes.” It claims to moisturize the eye area and minimize the look of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. Its ingredients include aloe vera leaf juice from California and desmosine. The packaging includes three metal cooling balls at the tip to help massage the product unto the skin.
The first try
I applied the product during the night and felt the cooling sensation instantly. It’s easy to mistake it as the feeling of being inflamed but died down in a few minutes. When I woke up in the morning I felt the puffiness lessened than usual.
Two weeks in
I’ve been applying the product religiously since I got it and I’ve noticed the lightening of my under-eyes! Some days though I could feel the cooling sensation a bit irritating but I chalk it up to the product working. If you have extra sensitive eyes, I recommend skipping this product.
