Where to purchase: From the Mad Hippie Website HERE or from Skinspace.co HERE
What is this?: An ‘anti-age’ eye cream.
What does it do?: Fights the first signs of ageing around the eye area – enriched with peptides and antioxidants.
Good for: All skin types (except those easily irritated by essential oils). I do think dry-er skins would prefer this over oily skins and hot / humid weather.
Packaging: Plastic tube/bottle with a pump. I like the pump and how easily this dispenses product. Great with the cap because it means it’s easy to travel with.
Directions: ”Apply a small amount of the product to the thin, delicate skin around the eye, and rub in gently with your finger.”
How I use it: I apply it after using my Niod FECC
Texture: Slightly sticky/tacky. Not my favourite kind of texture – it reminds me of the Inkey List Ceramide Night Treatment
Key Ingredients: Matrixyl Synthe ‘6 – a peptide which should help draw water in. Regu-age peptide complex, also supposed to help with drawing water in. Syn-Eye, another peptide designed to improve the appearance of the under eye. Chamomile extract – calms the skin. Pomegranate – an antioxidant (high in ellagic acid). Vitamin C – antioxidnat and skin brightening. Wheat protein – helps with hydration and ‘skin tightening.’. Vitamin B3 – even the tone of the skin and help with fine lines/wrinkles. Argan oil – Vitamin E source. moisturise and soothes the skin. White tea – antioxidants. Ceramides – nourishes and protects the skins barrier. Vitamin E – antioxidant.

What I like:
- The packaging (really like a pump top with a cap – good to travel with).
- It does moisturise my eyes
- I like that it has peptides, ceramides and antioxidants in this (things that I look for in an eye cream) – it’s nice to have some extra benefits apart from moisturisation.
What I don’t like:
- Strong smell that does not leave
- Slight tackiness/stickiness
Overall Rating and Conclusion: 3/5 – I deduct a lot due to 1. the slight tackiness (similar to the Inkey list ceramide night treatment) and the 2. Essential oils/strong smell that doesn’t leave even after rubbing in.
Would I purchase?: No – because I personally don’t like strong smells. If you like fragrance – this has a lovely smell from the essential oils, but for me it’s a big no-no. It’s sad because I do like the addition of vitamin C, peptides and antioxidants in here (I wish glossier would do this with their eye cream).
