In visiting my bag of samples recently, I found three samples Kiss My Face Eye Repair Creme. Instead of using each packet before opening the next, I put them all in a small container with a top. It seemed to be the sanitary and practical thing to do, and it was basically like getting a .5 oz container of eye creme for free!
Ingredients (provided at kissmyfacewebstore.com)- Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Leaf Extract),* Glycine Soja (Soybean Oil),* Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower Oil),* Cetearyl Glucoside, Glyceryl Stearate, Olea Europaea (Olive Oil),* Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Xanthan Gum, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile Flower),* Euphrasia Officinalis (Eyebright Extract),* Crataegus Laevigata (Hawthorne Berry Extract),* Equisetem Arvense (Horsetail Leaf Extract),* Echinacea Angustifolia (Echinacea Leaf Extract),* Rosa Canina (Rose Hips Fruit Extract),* Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass Leaf Extract),* Tocopherol, Caprylic Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, Bisabolol, Ascorbyl Phosphate, Hyaluronic Acid, Glycine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender Oil), Potassium Sorbate. *Certified by Quality Assurance International
While Skin Deep does have an Eyewitness Eye Repair Creme in it’s database, it appears to be the old formulation. For this reason, I’ve linked to each ingredient individually above. I couldn’t find Hawthorne Berry Extract in the database (which is why it’s linkless), and those with hazard scores higher than 2 are Retinyl Palmitate (8) and Potassium Sorbate (3).
Some great things about this product:
1. It’s free of parabens, phthalates, SLS, animal ingredients, artificial colors or fragrances.
2. It’s cruelty-free.
Product Description(also provided at kissmyfacewebstore.com)-”Reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness with organic ingredients. Smooth the appearance of wrinkles and moisturize the delicate skin around your eyes. Natural and organic oils and butters leave skin looking hydrated and rejuvenated.”
Price– It’s $19.00 for a .5 fl oz. tube.
Performance– This eye cream is pretty lightweight, and it wears really well under eye makeup without looking shiny or dull. I doesn’t seem quite rich enough to use at night, but it’s perfect for daytime use. A little dab on your ring finger and a few gentle pats are all it takes!
Scent– It has a pretty faint that reminds me of this body lotion.
Rating– 8/10. I subtracted 2 points for the two questionable ingredients.
Would I purchase this item again? I might. It’s more reasonably priced than some other natural eye creams I’ve tried, but its ingredients aren’t quite as impressive as my other (also current) favorite daytime eye cream.
