Low end VS high end // eye creams

Eye creams are one of those skincare products that, for me at least, tend to get forgotten. But I have got a few in my stash, from varying price points, and I thought I'd share with y'all what I think about them. Ta-daaaaa!

Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream // apparently this helps correct the 5 types of wrinkles (who knew there was 5 types) with the help of 30% bird nest extract. I won't lie, I don't have a clue what this means because aren't birds' nests made from twigs? Anyway, this is a Korean eye cream and apparently it also has whitening properties, but I'm already pale AF so I've not noticed much of a difference. It's white and smells a bit like lavender, and it's full of oils and plant extracts and gold. You can pick it up for around 12 quid which isn't too bad, especially as it's a Korean product, and it feels really nice on the skin. It's got almost a silicone-primer texture when you rub/tap it in, but a bit nicer. Does that make sense? Probs not.

L'oreal Skin Perfection Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream // this smells amazing and it's a really soft creamy texture, as well as being cream in colour - it's tinted so it brightens and illuminates, but I only ever tend to use eye cream at night so I'm not sure about that one. I can't find anything about the ingredients but this product just seems a bit mehhh to me. I can only find it on Amazon for some reason and it's about a fiver on there now so if you're desperate for an eye cream and don't want to splurge, go for it.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue // where to start with this one? I got this last year and I've only used it a handful of times - it's soooooooooo thick. It's not particularly uncomfortable to wear but you can definitely feel it on your skin so it can get pretty annoying sometimes. It doesn't smell like the other CT creams, and at £40 it's just way too expensive for an eye cream imo. It does, however, leave my eyes feeling VERY moisturised the next morning so I do use this when I'm having particularly dry skin episodes that aren't quite eczema.

BeeBio Nectar Instant Effect Eye Serum // the only instant effect I can see this having is on your bank balance, considering it's 129NZD which is approx seventy five quid. Maaaaate. Is it worth it? No, quite frankly. It's definitely a serum kind of texture, so lives up to it's name, and it is quite brightening, and it smells lovely - but it gives Sam hay fever because of the bee-related ingredients. A little goes a long way but I just think it's mega expensive. Soz.

There's the low down on the eye creams in my collection - if you have an eye cream that you love, do let me know as my mum is always on the hunt for a new one!
