What it’s supposed to do:
Create a flawless base
Eye cream? ( if you prefer )
Anti-Oxidants ( Vitamin A & E)
Vitamin C for “radiant, clear complexion”
infused with light reflectors
Verdict: Very easy to use and can be used not just as a moisturizer but as a highlighter for the face or the eyes alone. You get a large amount of product for a great price
Overall: 9/10 I would definitely recommend this product to any one who wants a nice glow on their face. Retails for €10.50 on Eyeko’s website.
Now I'm not actually the moisturizing type of girl, so this whole thing is a little foreign to me to be honest! This is what the cream is all about:
"Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow is a multitasking highlighter with all the benefits of your favourite cult classic Eyeko Cream. This NEW dreamy pink cream is loaded with micro light reflecting pigments perfect for creating a soft focus sheen. Add a flattering highlights to brow and cheek bones, your cupids bow, even collar bones and shins for a touch of moonlit magic."
I have to say that I LOVE the packaging. It has just the right amount of Asian flare that I'm all about. The box even has cute little drawings of cherry blossoms on it! There can never be enough cherry blossoms in the world I think! Anyway - the packaging is great, the only thing I would have liked to see is some instructions on where best to place the cream.
The Creme Itself
So the cream itself is a light shimmery pink colour and looks like icing! I kinda wanted to eat it, but that's the pregnant in me talking. The consistency is very light and fluffy and not at all greasy. And it smells like cream with no other harsh odors or perfumes. I have some on my hands and I actually don't even smell it anymore, so no scents to make you pass out.
Woah what a shimmer there is in this product. Its extremely iridescent and the thing it reminded me of first is fairies! Again, the application is very light and not greasy, it just leaves a nice sheen.
When applying it on my face It was actually SO shimmery I looked like I'd either been misted to death or that I just came back from visiting my Godmother in Fairyville. So I will say this, although I DO very much like this product - for me its for sparing use only: around the eyes, on the cheeks and anywhere else on the face that needs some highlighting, or even collarbones. But definitely not all over my face! I also don't think it would wear too well under makeup. But again, to highlight after makeup application I think would look pretty fresh! Especially since its not greasy and won't smear your makeup.
Would I buy this product? Yes. Would I ever use it as a daily moisturizer all over my face? No. I think its a great moisturizer to compliment the products that you already have and to give your face some nice shimmery highlights, but not all over as its just too overwhelming. But, because of that I can see this product lasting quite a long time. And for the price tag of $12USD its worth it for a product that's not greasy and that you can probably stretch for a good while. I think I'm going to bust out this product for the next wedding - as its definitely the kind of thing for special occasions and going out! They also have a tinted cream in their product line. Check that one out too!
