Taking care of the delicate skin underneath my eyes has always been an area I've been less than diligent with. As I've just turned 29 and edge ever closer to the big 30, it became apparent that if I wanted to keep my face free of wrinkles for a little longer that I would need to change my ways and pay more care.
There to rescue me, was Dr. Barbara Sturm - one of my favourite luxury skincare brands. I've spoken of my love for her beauty products many times on my blog before and have come to rely on them in my daily routine to keep my skin looking it's absolute best. Her products are based on a medical understanding of cells and anti-ageing which makes her an expert in cosmetic medicine.
The Dr. Barbara Sturm Eye Cream* is an ultra hydrating cream that's been specially developed with Purslane and Skullcap to lift and firm the sensitive area around the eyes, helping to reduce darkness and puffiness. It's infused with active omega fatty acids which help skin retain moisture. As the under-eye area is particularly delicate, the eye cream is free from any synthetic fragrances, parabens and mineral oils making it a very gentle but effective cream.
I've been using this for the last 3 months and have grown very attached to it. The skin around my eyes appears brighter, smoother and better hydrated and my makeup sits better in that area. As with all Barbara Sturm products, the eye cream is not for the faint hearted as it costs a whopping £105 per pot. As a result, it won't be for everyone but for those that do have a little extra to splash on some premium skincare, or want to recommend something for their mother or friends - it should be this.
