How to use
As the name of this AHC eye cream suggests, you can use it as an eye cream or a face cream. When I search online, I find that you can also use it as a neck cream or anywhere you need it.
- Dab it around your eyes after cleanser, toner, and serum.
- Replace your face cream and directly apply it all over your face and neck. Yes, this time you don’t have to avoid eye areas anymore. So convenient!
- Use it on your fine lines and wrinkles no matter where they are.
Personally, I am not really keen on this floral scent but a lot of people like it. It is a little bit overpowering for me. However, you don’t need to worry about it too much because this smell is quite acceptable and familiar. Plus, this smell will not last for a long time.
You can tell from the picture above that this AHC eye cream has a rich and creamy texture. The same as other eye creams, a penny size amount of it is already enough to cover all my skin around eyes. Even though it looks quite creamy, it is easy to absorb and leaves my eyes hydrated and soft. My eyes are quite easy to get fat particles when I use an eye cream with rich texture. Luckily, this [amazon link=”B01AY3KYH6″ title=”eye cream” /] doesn’t cause any fat particles or irritation in 2 months.
I also use it on my whole face for a few times. At the beginning, I apply a thin layer of it and feel like my face become soft and smooth, however, my face become stripped after 1-2 hours. Then I decided to try a thick layer and this time everything went well.
For most of us, we expect an eye cream to combat wrinkles, fade dark circles and provide moisture. But this eye cream will not a great multi-task player. It has a very good hydrating effect and can truly improve the moisture level. It works to prevent new wrinkles from jumping out, however, it can not defend your annoying old fine lines. As for dark circles, I don’t see any significant difference before and after.
When I look at the packaging again, I note that it already mentioned that its function is “providing moisture and improving skin elasticity smoothly”. You see, it already finished its task.
- Good hydrating effect
- Can use as a face cream as well
- Can’t reduce wrinkles or face dark circles.
All in all ,this AHC the real eye cream for face is a good choice for hydrating purpose given the low price. However, if you are looking for a eye cream with great anti-aging effect and want to smooth away your wrinkles. I have to admit it may not make wonders for you.
