True Natural EyeBright Peptide Serum

Awhile back, this eye serum was sent to me from True Natural for review and I’ve really enjoyed using it.  A natural beauty brand, True Natural uses all natural ingredients in their product formulas so their products are often lightweight and gentle, but really effective.

I’ve been testing this serum out for a good few months now and it’s definitely improved the condition of my entire eye area. It utilizes a number of natural plant oils, extracts and super hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid in order to moisturize and brighten the eye area, thereby improving discoloration, under eye circles, dryness, and broken capillaries.

After using this for a few months, I don’t know that I saw a huge difference in my under eye circles. They are still present, but less so. Actually, the main reason I really like this serum for my eye area is because it’s not only super gentle and non-irritating, but it has definitely helped hydrate my often dry under eyes and it’s also seemed to improve the condition of broken capillaries I have in the inner corners of my eyes from rubbing them a bit too often. All this coupled together has made a big difference in the overall appearance of my eyes, lending them a more youthful and healthy look.

I do wish they had done more for my dark circles, but then I know the dark circles I do have are due, in large part, to my genetics so I realize there’s only so much improvement that can be made with topical treatments, but this certainly comes close and as a standard light eye serum, this is a great choice. I think those with oily skin will really benefit because it’s light enough that it doesn’t clog under eye pores, but nourishing enough that you’ll see a difference.

Snow’s Eternal Youth Diamond Eyes Serum

This eye serum embodies the youth, perfection and beauty of Snow White from Grimm fairy tales!

Created to keep the skin around your eyes looking young, smooth, and radiant, Snow’s Eternal Youth Diamond Eyes Serum includes a variety of organic oils, essential oils, and some actives designed to help with dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles as well as to calm and hydrate, smooth fine lines, keep your skin clear of dullness and brighten skin while softening and firming.

For use on all skin types!

Organic Evening Primrose Oil – Used since the 1930’s in skincare for its use on skin irritations such as eczema, evening primrose oil has great anti-inflammatory properties due to its high content of gamma linolenic acid which is known for its healing abilities. This oil helps to moisturize and protect the skin from free radicals while repairing any damage.

Organic Grapeseed Oil – Grapeseed oil is perfect for all skin types as it has non-allergenic properties and absorbs well into the skin without being greasy. Including the calming and nourishing aspects of grapeseed, this oil also contains vitamins, minerals and proteins that soften and hydrate the skin. This oil is especially great for those who have skin that has a difficult time retaining moisture as it is more easily absorbed into the skin than other oils.

Raspberry Seed Oil – A strong antioxidant-filled oil, raspberry seed oil is high in Omega-3 and mega- 6 fatty acids for skin building proteins, Vitamin A and a high content of Vitamin E which makes it an invaluable carrier oil in anti-aging formulations.

Retinyl Acetate (Vitamin A) – The benefits of vitamin A are renowned in the skincare world for its efficiency at helping with both acne AND wrinkles while also evening out skin tone.

DMAE – This ingredient is the only known in the skin care world to help lift and firm the skin.

Licorice Extract – Licorice helps to naturally brighten and lighten the skin and evening out your skin tone while it diminishes scarring caused by acne. This extract helps to lend an overall glow and radiance to the skin.

Lavender EO – Lavender is a calming anti-inflammatory that has softening properties and helps to reduce eye-puffiness. It is relaxing therapeutically and an antidepressant. Antiseptic, antiviral, and antifungal, lavender can help to promote the healthy growth of new skin cells as well as healing burns, sun damage, scarring, acne, and other skin irritations.

Chamomile EO – Chamomile is a widely used healing antioxidant that can aid in a variety of skin issues including acne, irritation and skin regeneration as it assists in the healing of any skin damage and promotes cell turnover.

Vitamin K – A fantastic ingredient for diminishing dark circles.

Alfalfa Root – Alfalfa is rich in vitamin K, which is the only vitamin known to truly diminish dark circles. This plant also works as an antioxidant and helps to nourish the skin while protecting it from damaging free radicals.

Bearberry Extract (Uva Ursi) – Bearberry extract is a powerful antioxidant that is best known for its brightening abilities. Often used in commercial brands in brightening formulations, bearberry helps to brighten hyper-pigmentation while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and healing facial scarring.
