Review: Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Eye Cream

Friday, 6 August 2010

I just wanted to quickly share with you a product that I won't be repurchasing.

Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Eye Cream with SPF 15

What they say: (From the back of the tube) This light, non-greasy formulation containing naturally sourced Vitamin E will help deliver essential moisture to the delicate eye area, whilst the additional protection of SPF helps combat harmful and skin ageing UVA and UVB Rays.

Price: £2.49

What I think: This eye cream is incredibly cheap and doesn't seem to have much of a scent. The eye cream claims to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles, I found it worked a little on the puffiness, but had no effect on my dark circles. I can't really comment on whether or not it reduced the appearance of fine lines. It had quite a thick consistency, which I occasionally found difficult to blend in, especially if you applied too much product to the area. Another major dislike is that it contained a lot of glitter, which is really strange and a completely undesired effect.

Have you ever tried this product? What did you think of it?

Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy


  1. It's the same experience like the NaturalHigh Eye cream of superdrug! :)

  2. @Saskia - Oh no! It goes to show that some cheap things really don't work, while some other do. xx
