Review: Cerave Eye Repair Cream

A while ago, I ran out of eye cream and searched Paula's Beautypedia looking for an affordable eye cream. That's when I found Cerave Eye Repair Cream which got a 5/5 rating on Beautypedia. I got it from Drugstore.com at USD 13.99 for a 14g tube, pretty affordable!

It was given a 5-star (highest) rating on Beautypedia because of the impressive ingredients - ceramides (replaces lipid levels in skin), hyaluronic acid (humectant, hydrates skin), marine and botanical complex (good for microcirculation), niacinamide (aids skin in production of ceramides and fatty acids), plus it uses MVE technology for timed release of ingredients. But personally, I didn't think it was emollient enough for my dry under-eye area. It's a white cream that's not greasy at all and dries to a semi-matte texture; it's ok alone for day use, but at night, I usually layer it on after my facial oil. It is definitely not moisturizing enough for dry climates or in winter.

To summarize - it's a value-for-money eye cream for young 20s' skin, for day use and best reserved for summer.
