Today is the turn of B. Restored Eye Cream that I have been testing recently. I bought this in a skincare Haul from Superdrug a few months ago while they had a half price promotion.
I think Eye creams disappoint more than any other Skincare product. The eye area is so delicate and there are numerous issues, dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, hooding etc. that makes finding a perfect eye cream difficult.
B. Restored is a Phase 3 product for late 40’s, I know I’m not there yet but my lines underneath my eyes are my big concern. Lack of sleep and pain take its toll and shows here first, so I thought it might be a bit of a heavier hitter than a product for my age group (late 30’s).
This is more of a gel texture, which is cooling and pleasant. It sinks in easily and looks hydrating but only for about 5 minutes. The claims made about this Eye Cream such as locking in moisture, plumping and restoring elasticity don’t hold up. I find my eyes getting a little crepey and this didn’t do anything to tighten the area at all. My lines are still very prominent after applying in a way that I don’t get with Liz Earle Superskin Eye Cream or my beloved Gatineau Melatogenine Eye Concentrate, so I can’t see (pardon the pun!!) how this could be geared for an older age group. I wouldn’t necessarily say my lines are any worse than my friends of the same age so this does rather fall short.
I’m so disappointed, I had high hopes B. Restored, I think if you are in your 20’s and are looking for a hydrating gel/eye cream this may be ok, but certainly not if you are seeing signs of ageing. B. Restored is £10.99 for 15ml and available at Superdrug.
Till next time,
