Skin Food Potiron au Lait Eye Cream Review

Listen up dry eyes…! Winter is coming! Time to moisturize well! Moisture is key to flawless looking concealer. You should be apply a daily eye cream in the AM and a richer one in the PM to restore moisture to drier eyes so your concealer will look fresh and beautiful.

No one loves creasing, fading, uneven concealer and that’s exactly what you’ll end up with if you’re skipping prepping well with a proper eye cream. With the cooler weather creeping up I tend to rotate my eye cream to a richer formula and NO one does richer, moisturizing eye creams better than Skin Food.

Skin Food Potiron au Lait Eye Cream is infused with pumpkin extract and lupin protein to provide prolonged moisture to eyes.

I will say that in all my experience with Skin Food Eye Creams I’ve never come across one that technically treats the signs of aging however, they will prevent it or even blur the appearance of fine lines due to the fact they are always VERY moisturizing.

So is the case with Potiron au Lait Eye Cream….

This doesn’t actually have any anti-aging benefits and yes, we all want something that could benefit our eyes with daily use however, sometimes moisture is key to blurring the appearance of lines as they are at their most visible when the skin under our eyes is dry. This a thick, rich eye cream that absorbs easily into skin and leaves behind a very hydrated, smoother under eye. This in itself aids concealer to apply easily while allowing it to look more natural.

Although it won’t treat finer lines the excellent source of moisture it provides is well worth looking into. It’s an excellent nightly treatment allowing eyes to absorb and hold moisture which in turn results in younger looking eyes. Nothing worst than dry eyes that will make you look older.

On the downside it does come housed in a glass jar which is a breeding ground for bacteria, germs, etc…it does however, come with a spatula for application.

Overall, Potiron au Lait Eye Cream is a perfect companion for long, cold months when eyes need the most moisture!

Skin Food is sold at sasa.com as well as a variety of online shops and E-bay just practice precaution when purchasing Asian beauty products online!

I purchased this item.

    oh everyone is doing winter posts o.o i dont want winter to be here just yet! lol i want it to stay the way it is XD

    Skin Food is really intersting to me. I love their philosophy, but for some reason their products make my break out, which makes me sad. I have at least $50 worth of products at home and I can’t really use them & there’s no one to give them to @[email protected]

    Glad you like the product though 😀 i’m sure it smells wonderful!

  • christine

    How does it smell? Ive actually considered items from this line for ages 😮

  • cat

    I don’t think this is for me. Out of curiosity, is there a scent? Can you smell anything reminiscent of pumpkin?

    • Lorie

      I am concerned about parabens,and was surprised to read that some skin food products contained them, especially the yam SPF 17 lotion,of all items… I want to buy this product,but no where can I find out if this one is paraben free. If you don’t mind,and still have the bottle,could you please write me here and let me know?
      Thanks=

    IDK…I want to love skin Food, but I got a sample of the raspberry eye cream and it made my skin burn. I’m scared to try anything else now 🙁

  • OrangeLipstickBlog

    I would actually be more prone to buy it if it DID smell like pumpkin!

  • Tiffany Martin

    What kept if from Muse approval? Was it the lack of any long-term benefits (like anti-aging)?

    I’m always excited to see skinfood reviews (:

      anti-aging benefits Tiffany. It’s just a very basic cream, adds amazing moisture but doesn’t actually treat anything.

  • Melissa

    I’ve used it on and off for about 2 years. I actually finished the jar at some point and didn’t have to re-buy it. It’s very nice in the way it doesn’t mess up my makeup, but I need something a little thicker for night time.

    I’m just beginning to understand the difference btn anti-aging and moisturizing. What is your fave anti-aging eyecream. I’ve been bouncing btn 2 shiseido ones, primarily because the one that I prefer is, imo too heavy for day use.
