Fresh Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream Review

Hello lovelies! Today I’m sharing with you my thoughts on the Fresh rose hydrating eye gel cream. I received this as a freebie from a Sephora order. I thought that I would get a good solid week out of this sample. However, I got a little over two weeks of use from this sample. When I say a little bit goes a long way, I mean a little bit. If you use too much it doesn’t quite sink in and it balls up on itself. Let’s get into the specifics on the product and then I’ll share up my thoughts, pros/cons, and whether I would use it again.

Treatment Ingredients:

Rosewater

Golden Root Extract

Bambara Groundnut Extract

Hyaluronic Acid

These four ingredients combined offer all day moisture and brightness. I would agree with the claims of providing moisture and brightening up the under eye area. I noticed a slight change just after a few days. I noticed a slightly smoother and brighter under eye area. One day I accidentally pushed out way too much product, which most of it went to waste. However, I remembered reading somewhere that you can take your eye cream and pat a little bit onto your lips. I decided to try this little hack and my lips never felt so smooth and soft. Makeup goes on beautifully over this. I haven’t had a problem with concealer, primer, eye shadow layered on top. They go on so smoothly and last as long as they normally do. I find that it is not a heavy eye cream, which for me works out. My skin loves a gel formula, and just drinks it up. So for me, the formula is a huge plus. Here comes the big thing, the scent. I found the scent to be nicely balanced between rose and a much more natural, neutral fragrance.

PROS:A little goes a long way

           A container will last awhile

           Makeup goes on top nicely

           Light, gel formula

           Scent is not overwhelming

           Brightening

          Made without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates

CONS:It balls up if you use too much

            Some people may be sensitive to the scent

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this product. I wish I had a bigger sample of this so I can see more long term effects. I would purchase this during the Sephora VIB sale once I go through a couple other eye creams that I have.  It retails for $41 for half of an ounce. I’m looking forward to having this in my skin care routine again. That’s all for today. I hope you all have a great week!
