Review: Lily. B Multi-Action Rescue Ultra Eye Cream

I was recently sent the Lily B Multi-Action Rescue Ultra Eye Cream as part of the Bloom Ambassadors program. I don't review eye creams very often and have a hard time incorporating them into my routine. My eyes are very sensitive and tend to get irritated easily. The last thing I want when applying an eye cream is for it to cause my eyes to burn and/or tear especially as the last step to my night time skincare regimen. While the price for this particular eye cream is quite high ($42.50 for the 1/2 fluid ounce), it does not make my eyes burn or tear and is quite soothing on the delicate eye area.

I didn't notice any remarkable differences with things like under eye circles or puffiness, but it did hydrate the area quite well and allowed my concealer to apply much less patchy than normal. The smell is quite pleasant due to the apricot kernel oil. I'm far from a chemist, but I was pretty impressed by the ingredient list and even better - no silicones! The hygienic dispenser also gets a thumbs up in my book.

While I doubt I'd repurchase this, this is great eye cream for those with drier skins and sensitive eyes.
