EyeWake Hydrating Eye Serum review

*
HEYE GEYES! SEE what I did there? Today’s post is all about an eye serum so y’know, I thought I’d open with some excruciatingly terrible puns. I know, it was really, really bad. I’m so sorry. Please don’t click away from the page, I promise there will be no more puns and this product is worth a look (pun not intended there).

So yeah, as I stated above, today’s post is going to be featuring the natural and organic EyeWake Hydrating Eye Serum which is described as a unique collagen formula gel. It is designed to reduce puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, crows feet and signs of fatigue around the eyes whilst gently hydrating the area. It contains hydrolysed collagen, Vitamin E, cucumber and elderflower. It’s rammed full of antioxidants which help to boost vitality.

In addition to using this eye serum around your eyes, it can be used on the face to help with fine lines and other signs of ageing whilst also leaving your skin smooth and bright.

As well as being natural and organic, EyeWake are against animal cruelty, is alcohol free and for every purchase of the serum, EyeWake make a donation to Women’s Aid which is a charity that I wholeheartedly support. 

It comes packaged in a white bottle with black text that holds 30ml of eye serum. It has a pump lid for dispensing the product. The serum itself is clear and has a water like consistency.

Application and Results:

To use, you need to tap or massage a small amount of the serum onto clean, dry skin around the eye area and allow to absorb.

Due to the very watery consistency, when you pump it onto your fingertips you need to work quick before it runs and ends up getting wasted.

It takes a little while to sink into the skin properly, but I find that if you use a tiny amount at a time and gently dab it in around the eyes and then continue to build it up, it dries faster. This does drag out the application time a bit though, so whether or not it saves any time overall depends on how much you feel that you need to use. 

It doesn’t have a very noticeable cooling effect like some eye gels, even though it does contain cucumber. 

When applying and even when it’s dry, it doesn’t leave a heaviness around the eyes. It feels lightweight and looks mattified. It really does look and feel like you’ve just applied some water around the eyes and let it dry off. 

The main thing that I love about this serum is that when it does dry it doesn’t leave a sticky or greasy feeling behind. Makeup is super easy to apply over the top of it without it sticking or caking up like it can over some eye creams or gels.

I’ve been using the serum for two weeks now and I find that there have been some improvements with fine lines around my eyes. The top thing that I’ve noticed though is the reduction in puffiness and dark circles. Even without a cooling effect on the eyes, it does a great job at helping you to look more awake if you continue to use it daily. 

In regards to using it on the rest of the face, I think that it works alright as a mild moisturiser for oilier skin, but for drier skin you would likely prefer to use it as a serum with a moisturiser on top. It leaves a nice, smooth finish that’s mattified and it works well as a base for makeup. It does a great job at helping with smile lines or creases and filling them back out as well as any other fine lines.

If you plan on just using this around your eyes, then 30ml is actually a lot of product for your money. Most eye creams and gels come in sizes of between 10-15ml, so it’s like buying two of them in one bottle. If you plan on using this on your entire face, then 30ml is a pretty standard size for a bottle of serum.

Overall, I think this is a great multipurpose product. It works best as an eye serum, but it is a nice addition to your facial skincare routine if you are looking for that little extra boost this winter. If you have lots of late nights that result in puffy, tired eyes that have noticeable dark circles, then this is a fantastic product to try out. You may not notice results from day one, but keep going and the eye area just continues to get better every day. 

Product Rating: 8/10
