My review of Skin Food Salmon Brightening Eye Cream is LONG over do. I introduced many of you to the powder and concealer ages and ages ago but never followed up with a review of the eye cream and eye serum.
I guess it got away from me. The Salmon range is one of the most successful products I’ve tried from Skin Food. Both the concealer and powder are HG products for me as is the eye cream.
Let’s take a peek!
Skin Food successfully creates some gorgeous eye creams that really hydrate well but most are ineffective as aging or anti-aging treatments. However, I do always recommend and suggest them as they moisturize incredibly, better than most high end eye treatments and cream plus they are fairly inexpensive and add to the fact that never, ever give me issues with milia. All this equals a very happy Muse!
Skin Food Salmon Brightening Eye Cream was created to fight dark circles and brighten the eye area. It’s a bit odd considering it contains arbutin, an effective whitening ingredient typically used in facial lotions and potions. I’ve never seen arbutin recommended for around the eye area. It also contains extracts of Omega 3 rich salmon roe.
I’ve been using it for two years now or so? This is my third jar actually. It’s a thicker cream consistency with a thinner texture as you apply. It seems to emulsify when it hits skin and starts going a bit oily. It does absorb easily enough but requires a fair few pats to lessen the oiliness. It’s highly moisturizing under my drier eyes. I typically use it as a PM eye cream (lately I’ve cheated on and off with Philosophy Miracle Worker though).
Does it brighten?
It doesn’t necessarily treat darkness though. After long term use I haven’t noticed my dark circles looking any brighter but my overall eye looks brighter and more youthful, less tired. It does fairly well with puffiness too. Although not listed as a benefit of use it seems to do well with puffiness and deflates my bags giving my eyes a perky look versus a tired one.
One thing I noticed about using this over a long period is the fact I feel more comfortable going concealer-less at times. I rely on my concealer to create flawlessness under my older eyes but this seems to allow me, if I choose, to go out without the aid of concealer.
Overall, it’s an excellent eye cream that does show some great benefits. It doesn’t really treat darkness or whiten my eye area up by erasing dark circles completely but it does brighten things up and gives my eyes a far less tired look.
Muse Approved for purchase.
There are good deal of shops that carry this online. I suggest Zinopark on E-bay. He’s super friendly (little limited with English), very quick to ship, has legit products with fresh expiration dates, and has fairly reasonable pricing and shipping.
