H20 Night Oasis Overnight Eye Complex Review

My quest for eye cream nirvana led me to H20 Night Oasis Overnight Eye Complex recently.   I kinda fell in love with H20 recently and it’s been overtaking the shelves of my washroom and replacing lots of my Lush skincare, gasp, I know I’m such a cheater!

Jump ahead to hear the deets on the eye complex!

If you’re in the ways of having a sandy desert storm going down under your eyes and all sorts of dryness going on, H20 Night Oasis Overnight Eye Complex might be your best friend. So…your concealer is caking, maybe it’s crawling into fine lines, when you smile you might notice that your eyes are crinkling up a bit more, lord…you might even sport a flake or two under there….all signs of the terrible dryness that strikes us down especially in the Winter. If you’re older this will pretty much be a common event from now on and if you’re younger you can easily redeem it super fast and on the fly.

I was disappointed because H20 Night Oasis Overnight Eye Complex doesn’t multitask. It does one thing and one thing only. It hydrates. That’s it. Don’t expect it to depuff, don’t expect it to treat fine lines, don’t expect it to walk the dog…..what you can expect is intense moisture and hydration in a gel-like formula that feels like a cup of cold water for your eyes. I was kinda wishin’ and hopin’ it would do all sorts of funky tricks but I’m ever so grateful for the extra moisture regardless.

In my experience of 3 months or so of use I noticed a vast improvement under my eyes in regards to dry skin. It hydrates the skin very well and creates a smoother area so concealer adheres and stays put without creeping into fine lines. With the added benefit of so much moisture you’ll also actually notice that fine lines will look a little less prominent as opposed to how badly they look when your skin is drier.

Although it’s a night cream I like using it after I step out of the shower as this gives it a second to dry down as it feels very moist for a few minutes. After this my eye area is left feeling smoother and much more moisturized making a perfect prepping area for concealer.

I absolutely love this stuff and consider it an HG (holy grail) beauty find. I do hate the fact that it doesn’t multitask at depuffing and treating fine lines as I really hate having to use multiple products for my eyes, sometimes skincare can be so over done and you’re using 10 or more products to achieve results for different things, what a pain.

Overall, aside from it’s single target of moisture and it’s inability to multitask and clean up my other woes, I absolutely adore it. I can use all the moisture under my eyes I can get and this delivers, period. Fantastic stuff and a true gem of a product.

Loves it and Muse Approves it for purchase.

It’s $30 and well worth it’s price tag.

Available now from H20.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Just thought I’ll share this tidbit with the Muse’s Canadian readers.
    If you enter the code ‘Robson’ when shopping at H2O’s online store, you’ll get free shipping. This is due to the Robson branch of H2O being under construction. Them considerate folks thought to provide free shipping in order to compensate for the inconvenience.

      hi sasha. ginzing is an entirely different product and performs for puffy eyes this is for dryness 🙂 Depending on what you need, moisture for your eyes or a way to depuff, you can pick one of the two or both. I know I need both as I have dryness and puffiness! Hope this helps.

    I wanted to know since i was never for certain, where DO you pat the cream around your eyes? Do you pat it down below your eye bags or on top of it? I remember someone said that too much lotion would cause milia. I think that is the word I’m looking for.. you know those white bumps around your bags, which I’m having problems now

    • the Muse

      Christine too much lotion can cause milia :_D haha! indeed that’s true. But that’s for richer eye creams, this you wouldn’t have a problem with. I suggest DermaDoctor eye Balm…I had a milia as well and they seemed to have disappeared after I used Dermadoctor. It’s this one:

      I normally pat around my eye area right on top of the bags under my eyes. Hope this helps!

    ooo… I have ONE fine line below my eyes… just got it this sem… I need a good eye cream to help me decrease the lines and also get rid of black circles.. any good suggestions =)
    I live in Malaysia and most of the stuff u review aren’t available here… plus, they are cheaper compared to the price here… like a bottle of the Clinique moisturiser is RM155~~ haha…

    • the Muse

      hi yuki I never really discovered anything to fight dark circles aside from concealer. I do like dermadoctor for my fine lines and like it alot.

      Aw I’m sorry about the prices and such in Malaysia 🙁 that stinks!
