They have launched a range of eye creams- and this time I'm going to review the Marine Miracle Eyezone. This is a treatment that has been exclusively developed for the delicate eye area. It's made with Aldavine, a special ingredient that is made up of an association of 2 unique algae polysaccharides. It's purported to have special effects on the skin in terms of making it younger.
Overall rating: 3/5
Packaging: Shiny, unique and cool- the packaging definitely stands out amongst other cosmetic products. It is shaped in a round orb-like case, and it is very shiny and metallic. It looks almost like an alien space orb. I'm quite into the design, it's so cool.
Ease of use: I'd expect them to come with a spatula or a pick, but it didn't. I'm quite disappointed because I think it's more hygienic to use a spatula instead of my dirty fingers when touching my eye. They should have thought about that! Also the round case was quite difficult to unscrew, because I can't tell which way to twist. Also the case is a bit too smooth… it was hard to open. The jar itself was too small also, so my fat fingers can't really fit inside. But once I manage to open the actual jar, it was good to go.
Smell and texture: I hate creams that smell too strong or too sweet. This eye cream was a bit sweet smelling, which means that you won't like it if you're into neutral smelling creams. However, it wasn't that strong, so maybe that can be forgiven. I would have preferred a cream that smells more natural though. The texture is normal- not too thick, just about right.
Value for money- for a 10ml container, it is quite pricey. It costs £41.95 / USD $49 per 10ml- so I think it's in the high-range of things, but worth it if you've got a little extra to splurge.
Effect: after using it, I felt that my eye area was indeed more moisturised and soft. In fact, it was quite a pleasant feeling, since it didn't leave any grease or oily residue. I think that if I keep using this for a long time, the skin below and above my eyes will be much more smoother and young-looking that it was. It created a very supple effect on my skin- and it absorbed really quickly. I'm quite impressed.
My eye bags are always expanding, so it's about time to invest in a good eye product. I'm a bit upset that this eye cream is so little- how much can I use for 10ml? I think it might last for 3 weeks.
What do you think?
