REVIEW: ETAT PUR ANTI PUFFINESS & DARK CIRCLES EYE CREAMS

REVIEW: ETAT PUR ANTI PUFFINESS & DARK CIRCLES EYE CREAMSHey guys!

Eye creams. Although we all have a pretty set of eyes, a lot of peeps think that eye creams are gimmicky and completely nonsense. ‘Why use eye cream when you can get a big jar of face cream that does the same job?’ – Do many of you think. And afterwards you’re probably struggling hiding your dark circles or depuffing your puffy eyes after a night out. Well guys, let me tell you: there is a huuuuuuuuge difference between eye cream and face cream. Everytime I get some face cream around my eye zone, there is a big chance I wake up with a rash the next day. The skin around your eyes is very different to your face (and neck!), so that’s why it makes sense to use a separate cream for that very delicate and thin part of your skin. So guys, today I’m going to talk about the Etat Pur eye creams. They have two types and I’ve tested them both: one for people that struggle with dark circles, the other one for people that struggle with undereye puffiness.

 

REVIEW: ETAT PUR ANTI PUFFINESS & DARK CIRCLES EYE CREAMSETAT PUR RUSCOGENIN PURE ACTIVE EYE CREAM
I’m first going to start off with the Ruscogenin pure Active eye cream (on the right). It is recommended for its effect on undereye puffiness and the reduction of signs of fatigue. This very specific area of the face is particularly delicate and fragile. It’s 5 (!) times thinner than the rest of your face! Undereye puffiness is caused by perturbation of the flows of water and microcirculation. I love the packaging of this eye cream, because it’s so small and handy to take with you. It has a kind of a droplet at the top that will make sure you only use 1 drop for your undereye area. A little goes a long way! I’ve used these creams for a month now and I feel like I’ve only used up 1/4.

 

REVIEW: ETAT PUR ANTI PUFFINESS & DARK CIRCLES EYE CREAMSWhat I love about this eye cream, is the fact that there’s a lot of research behind Etat Pur’s products. They used the ingredient ruscogenin for example, because it’s a natural molecule in the medical world for its decongestive and stimulant properties. This molecule activates microcirculation of the blood while protecting the integrity of skin tissue. These two effects are ideal to clear undereye puffiness.

I’ve used this eye cream every morning, because my eyes are slightly more puffy in the morning than in the evening. The cream has a very nice texture and it has a calming effect when applied to your undereye area. It absorbs instantly due to the very watery consistency, which is great as a basis for concealer (it won’t slip and slide). It’s also great for people with sensitive undereye skin, because it didn’t give me any rashes. Most eye creams give me rashes, so that’s why this is a pretty big deal for me. You can imagine I’m loving this product!

 

REVIEW: ETAT PUR ANTI PUFFINESS & DARK CIRCLES EYE CREAMSETAT PUR APIGENIN PURE ACTIVE EYE CREAM
Next up is the Apigenin pure Active eye cream (on the right). This eye cream is especially recommended for dark circles under the eyes. Because the skin around your eyes is so thin, dark circles can appear in cases of fatigue and become more marked as time passes. They are principally related to a skin pigmentation disorder and fragile capillaries. But no worries, you don’t have to wear make-up all the time to make them less noticable, because this eye cream definitely helps.

But what is Apigenin actually? Apigenin is a flavonoid known for its targeted effect on microcirculation and its ability to protect the skin matrix. Apigenin activates the elimination of the pigment responsible for the bluish colouring of the eye contour and reduces signs of fatigue.

Sooo, did I notice a difference? Again, I’m that lucky bastard that only gets really dark circles once a year or something, but I still have some discolouration in that area. used this cream every night for a month. First of all, my undereye area is very sensitive and this eye cream didn’t give me any rashes at all, yay! It’s also very thin and liquidy, so it absorbs immediately and leaves you with a great make-up basis. I can’t really say if my dark circles disappeared though, because I feel like I didn’t have them to begin with ánd a month is just not that long to test out a skincare product. I’m still very happy with this product, because of its formula.

 

REVIEW: ETAT PUR ANTI PUFFINESS & DARK CIRCLES EYE CREAMSCOMPARISON
There’s definitely a difference between the two creams. The Apigenin pure Active eye cream is on the left, the Ruscogenin pure Active eye cream on the right. There is a slight colour difference and the texture is also kind of different. The Apigenin eye cream is a bit thicker (still very liquidy tho) and the Ruscogenin is a bit more watery. The Ruscogenin absorbs even quicker than the Apigenin cream, but I do feel like the Apigenin cream has more of an instant result, because of the thicker consistency and the slight tint. Overall, I like both of these eye creams and I think you should definitely try them out if you struggle with bags or puffiness!

So that’s it for today’s blogpost about the Etat Pur eye creams. Although I love my make-up, using great skin care is even more important for achieving that flawless make-up look. If your skin is crap to begin with, the process of getting perfect looking skin will take you much longer. It’s better to start off with the basis and focus on treating your problems instead of hiding them. That’s why I think it’s so great that Etat Pur formulated these two eye creams for people with two different needs. Of course, it’s kind of a shame that I don’t really struggle with a lot of puffiness and dark circles, but I’ve still noticed positive results. So definitely recommend these eye creams!

DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH PUFFY EYES OR WITH DARK CIRCLES?
