Among the many joys of life, finding a good eye cream has to be right up there in the top 10. I’m a sucker for treating the peepers and believe it or not, locating that gem of a cream is no easy business. Apart from the delightfully efficient La Prairie eye serum that blew my socks off before (and I highly recommend), there’s been only a few that truly left me satisfied. None specially at a more pocket friendly price.
Over the last few months i’ve been on some new Origins goodies and waddaya know! I found something I like!
The newly reformulated Plantcription™ Anti-aging Power Eye Cream.
I decided to pack this for my trip to Japan. A great way to try new eye creams it seemed since it forces you to stick to the plan and continuously keep using it without excuses.
The packaging is absolute perfection. Housed in a smallish plastic pump bottle this one’s made for travel and not just for the daily!
Also great that the pump mechanism here allows you to control just how much you dispense, unlike some annoying pumps which i’m sure you’ve encountered as well! No wastage, and you dispense exactly what you need. Very important when it comes to eye creams since you only need such a tiny amount.
The texture of this is very light. Doesn’t feel oily and absorbs fast. I feel it has just right amount of richness for practically anyone (excluding those with severely dry under eyes).
I didn’t detect any particular scent to it, other than that of a typical unscented cream. So i’m gonna say, no added fragrance.
Also a perk of this perfectly balanced formula is that I don’t have to reserve this just for the night time, it’s all day, errday TWICE! Plus, how annoying is it when you find a cream that works for you but ends up too rich for day time under makeup?
Based on over just a month of use i’ve seen my undereye ‘un-age’ itself drastically. It’s now firmer, less puffy and my wrinkles much less noticeable. I’m really thrilled with the results.
Given that wrinkles are my primary concern when it comes to eyes, you can imagine my excitement to find something that delivers! And the best part, this cream is soooooo well priced ❤
If you are in the market for a new eye cream and wrinkles are your main concern, get this. I highly recommend you do.
It’s fast acting, cost effective (i’ve only used up 1/3 for just over a month of use) and comes packaged hygienically in a pump bottle that’s easy to handle.
