I have talked about this before so it is not a secret that I have really dark under eyes. I have tried so many eye creams and serums to try and brighten the area but I come up empty handed most times.
In October I received a .5oz tube of CONTEXT SKIN’s Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream and truthfully, I didn’t have high expectations for this based on previous attempts with similar products and I really didn’t know anything about the brand.
CONTEXT SKIN is an American company that prides itself on a few core goals and promises that I can really appreciate and be thankful for. They do not test any of their products on animals which makes me very comfortable to support. Also, all of their products are made with high-quality ingredients and are free of toxic chemicals.
All of these things are fantastic and make for a desirable brand, but does it work? I started using it the night that I received it just to put my curiosity to rest. I have been using it each morning under my makeup and again each night for about a month now and I do have it say, it works! I have certainly noticed a difference and I am embarrassed by how quickly I was to think this would end up buried in a drawer and never used again. The formula is really lightweight and a little bit goes a long way.
I look and feel hydrated and my under eyes are visually brighter, that is a solid win for me! The cream is jam packed with a mixture of preventative botanicals such as vitamin C and vitamin E (antioxidant protection), grape seed extract (anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory), angelica and echinacea extract (comforts and calms sensitive skin) and licorice extract (soothing and calming). For some reason, I was expecting this to have a strong scent to it but I don’t smell anything at all.
I haven’t been able to find this brand in Canadian stores anywhere yet but us Canadians can get some love from their website. The Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream only comes in a 0.5oz tube right now and it sells for $35.00USD. That is on the pricey side based on the amount of product but they do offer free shipping on $40.00 or more and each package will be sent with a free sample so that is exciting! I can;t complain about the small size of the tube because now it means I can take it to Mexico with me!!
If you are looking for a new eye cream that really works and comes from a chemical and cruelty free brand – this may be your next love!
Have you tried any products from CONTEXT SKIN? What is your cant-live-without eye cream? Please let me know, I would love to give it a try!
