Finally A Good Eye Cream? // Botanic Hydrating Eye Serum

Hello darlings

When it comes to skincare i just have to try everything, aren't we all looking for that miracle product?  It was buy one get one free on Botanics products when i popped into boots a month or so ago, so how could i resist? I mean how could i turn down getting a product for free? I love the botanic range in boots, i always feel they do something good to my skin as its plant extracts. Its great to see products that aren't full of harsh chemicals. I picked up the Hydrating Eye Serum Triple Age Re-Wind and the Hydration Light Serum. I'm going to review them both in separate blog posts otherwise this will be a long post! I'm starting with the Eye Serum, so look out in the week or so for part two! 

This eye serum really appealed to me, Isaac is not sleeping at night and the bags under my eyes are insane!! I've never looked this tired before, he wakes up every two hours and then decides at 5 am he wants to start the day... Now i've tried a million and one eye creams in my short 22 years on this planet, i mean who doesn't want a wonder product?
I should first tell you little about my skin type first, i have dry/normal skin that is acne prone. I'm also 22 years old so i'm not the target audience for age rewind product but that doesn't mean i'm not obsessed with anti aging products, if i start now i can at least say when i'm 50 that i tried everything?  
Packaging: Its basic, the outer packaging very pretty,  i'm loving the purple as its one of my favourite colours. But (pic 3) the inside tube is very plain. You get 15ml which is standard for an eye cream. Its a pretty decent amount as you only need a little as your eye area is only small. Also a small amount goes a long way! 

Scent: The Botanic range of made from plants so it has a slight floral smell, i was worried would be overwhelming as i'm not a floral fan but this range has only a mild scent. But once on the skin it wasn't noticeable. 
Texture: Its more cream like than a serum. Only a small amount needed, spreads and blends into your skin beautifully. Its a pretty thin texture which is what makes it blends so well. 
Absorption time: I have found it absorbed into my skin really quickly, good if you're in a rush. But if you apply to much it does take a few more seconds to disappear into the skin. But saying that i do have dry skin so i find products tend to absorb quickly. I would love a opinion form a oily skinned girl/guy who has tried this?

Results: Now the important bit does it work? Its taken me using it for a good few weeks to see a real difference. My dark circles look a little less dark and puffy. And my frown lines are not as visible, so i'm really impressed. I rarely see results from eye creams, i normally just think they are a fad, but this time is not the case. 
Another great thing is it is affordable at only £11.99 and they don't test on animals! 

I'd love to know have you tried any products from the Boots Botanic range?

  1. Not yet anything from this range but you make me want to with the results. My dark circles are really bad and the current eye cream (still have a lot 😭) doesn't seem to work too well other than hydrating the area. Also 15ml lasted me more than a year haha so I'm going to check this out and see if they have it here in Malaysia!

    1. Its quite a popular brand, i'm really enjoying it :)

  3. I've heard so many good things about Botanics! This sounds like a great drugstore option, you don't get very much of those in the eye cream department! It's also great that you saw results, it definitely sounds like it's value for money xx
