Review: bareMinerals Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream

Today's post is going to be a review on an eye cream that I've been absolutely loving, and it's the bareMinerals Renew & Hydrate Eye Cream. 

According to Sephora's site, this is supposed to be a moisturizing eye cream that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also powered by the ActiveSoil Complex which is supposed to revitalize skin and boost moisture, leaving the eye area looking revived, refreshed and luminous. 

This eye cream is also made without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan. That's basically a bunch of nasty chemicals that you don't really want near your skin. 

To keep a long story short, I love this eye cream! I've been using it at night and it makes the skin around my eyes feel so hydrated and lovely. It spreads around incredibly well, it almost feels silky to the touch. As you can see above, it's not incredibly thick, but when you put it on, it just sinks right in and works wonders. I personally don't see my eyes being refreshed or luminous as I have really bad dark circles thanks to my dad, but at night that doesn't bother me. I tend to look for a night time eye cream that is a bit thicker because my under-eyes tend to get dry. My allergies are also already in full swing so that doesn't help either. When I wake up in the morning, the skin under my eyes still feels hydrated and I feel like the teeny tiny lines I have look less noticeable. 

The size container I have is 0.23 fluid ounces that I purchased in a set with a cleanser, but the full 0.5 ounce size sells for $32. I feel that's very fair for what you're getting and you only need a tiny bit to cover the eye area. I most likely will repurchase when I run out of other eye creams. 

Have you tried this product before? If not, what are some of your favorite eye creams? I'm always looking for a good one, so definitely let me know!
