review of  Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvenating Eyecream

Today’s review is on my favourite eye-cream that I have tried in the one year since I’ve added an eyecream to my routine. Even though it’s been a fairly recent step, I’ve tried a couple of eye-creams and so far the Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvinating Eye Cream (£14) has been the one that I am loving enough to repurchase in the future. Eye-creams are an essential in my skincare routine because my under-eye area is my biggest problem area on my face - dark circles, fine lines, occasional dryness, you name it I’ve probably dealt with it!  So keeping that area hydrated is a must and this eyecream does a fantastic job at doing just that. Even if you don't have to face half of the issues I mentioned, it's important to keep the under-eye hydrated as it's such a delicate area of the face, with the thinnest skin so it's worth spending a little more and giving the under-eye some TLC. I'm still a huge fan of Sweet Almond Oil for brightening dark circles, however it doesn't provide quite enough moisture alone - especially for this stubborn dry patch that I have under my brow and the only thing that can help that go away is this eye cream - it's amazing!

What makes this eyecream better than others I have tried, both cheaper and more expensive, is the formula. It’s creamy without being thick or greasy and although I do like to use a more amount generous at night, I can get away with using this as a day eye-cream under makeup too - provided I don’t use too much! This is something I only found out recently because it’s so moisturising I was sure it would be too much for day-time, I was wrong - so long as you use a tiny amount and give it at least 2-3 minutes before applying make-up it works great either day or night.  The cream absorbs quickly under the eyes and instantly takes away any dehydrated tight feeling which is amazing! A lot of the times when I’ve not had a full nights sleep, my eye’s will look and feel tired and so will the delicate skin underneath it, so to have the under-eyes soothed and plumped up a little is a step I have come to look forwards too. It contains shea butter which explains why it’s so great at moisturising and also a bunch of other stuff which, frankly I don’t have any idea what it is (SUPER-YOUTH™P3000 complex, oxygen boosting ENERGINSENG™, INSTANT SWIFTLIFT™ effect technology, undereye-brightening LIGHTSCRAMBLE LUMINOSPHERES™ - anyone????) but regardless it works like a charm.

The packaging is this cute little silver tub, which isn’t the MOST hygienic, but when dealing with skincare my hands are always 100% clean so I don’t have any worries there. I love how cute the box is, without any gaudy colours, it looks rather chic to me - and it’s lightweight to travel with too. I find a little goes a long way and that really is my only problem with this! I know it sounds strange but eyecreams only typically have a shelf-life of 6 months and I’ve had this tub open for at least 9. I was silly and only used this at night for 4-5 months because I was using the good things one for day time (no complaints with that either it just isn’t quite as hydrating) - so now I’m stuck with loads of product left months and months after I opened it *sigh*. I’m not normally so vigilant with shelf-lives however with creams on the face I do think one needs to be a little careful...what are your thoughts? Have you used out of date moisturisers? 6 months is a ridiculous time frame, but what can you do eh?

All in all this is an amazing eye cream for the price, though it’s not the most student friendly it’s a lot cheaper than high-end brands despite doing just as good of a job. If you have dry, dehydrated or tight under-eyes I highly recommend trying this out!

Final Verdict:
Product rating: 8.5
Pros: Moisturising, absorbs into the skin easily, contains shea butter which is known as a ‘skin super food’ and has tonnes of benefits, isn’t greasy, a little goes a long way, sleek packaging, easy to travel with, the only thing that get's rid of that stubborn dry patch, better quality than some of the high-end alternatives and more effective too. 
Cons: The only one I can think of is that it’s shelf-life is 6m but that’s pretty standard I believe.

Repurchase? As soon as I can grab it in a 3for2 offer I will do and this time I’ll use it day and night too!
