I snagged a 2 mL sample of philosophy eye hope by doing a swap with a friend. I am pretty thankful I received this anti-aging eye cream in the trade. The last eye cream I tried, Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream, was pretty disappointing and I was dying to find a better alternative!
My "Holy Grail eye cream" would nourish my eye area, be matte, preserve youth and soothe around my eyes.
When I apply eye hope, it feels very creamy, yet light. It is virtually unscented. I smell a tiny bit of vanilla scent, but it is barely there.
Even when I apply it liberally, it absorbs well and dries matte. Matte! I can barely believe it!
I thought the area under my eyes looked brighter and any puffiness had gone away. I think the puffiness was taken down by the coffee arabica extract (an anti-inflammatory) in the cream. The area under my eyes looked brighter because of "optical brighteners" in the cream, like mica. The cream also contains firming agents like palmitoyl tripepetide-3 and dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline.
I don't want to jinx anything, but I think I might have met my "Holy Grail."
