Today I’m sharing my review of Aloe Eye Defense from The Body Shop. I find The Body Shop products can be hit or miss. They are often wayyy too fragranced and their skincare can be expensive. However, they often have promotions- so often that I rarely pay full price for their products, and some cult items are great ( I love the Dry Body Oil and bars of soap for instance).
I wasn’t thrilled with my 1000 Roses Eye Gel from Andalou Naturals as it gave me a slight burning feeling, so I wanted to try something else. This eye cream-gel is formulated with prebiotics, community trade aloe, buckwheat and oat bran extract. It costs $20CAN but is currently on sale for $12 online.
-Half a pump is enough for both eyes
-Doesn’t make my eyes sting, burn or feel tight
-Scent free, paraben free, cruelty free
-The formula is a bit runny so pressing the pump fully can be messy
I’m glad I tried this product. I really didn’t want to shell out a lot of money on an eye cream and this works perfectly for me. It absorbs nicely but not so slow that I have to wait ages to apply the rest of my makeup. The formula is a tad more like an “aloe milk” than a gel-cream as it can be a bit runny, but once you get used to the pump it isn’t an issue. My skin can be sensitive and I get no irritation whatsoever from this product. Overall a great find!
