Dr Hauschka Daily Revitalizing Eye CreamIn my quest for an effective eye cream that will diminish some of the dark circles and fine lines that have started creeping up, I’ve been testing a number of different products. One of my favorites is definitely the Daily Revitalizing Eye Cream from Dr. Haushcka’s holistic skin care line.

Dr. Hauschka claims that its Daily Revitalizing Eye Cream will prevent signs of premature aging while hydrating the skin and refining delicate lines around the eye. A quick look at the ingredients list reveals a number of components that help make this possible: nourishing avocado, jojoba and sweet almond oils; skin-soothing calendula extract; moisturizing shea butter. It also contains pineapple extract, which has antioxidant and exfoliating properties, both of which can help diminish fine lines.

On a personal note, I’ve been pleased with the performance of this product. I use it daily and definitely have noticed that the skin under my eyes seems brighter than normal—making me appear less tired. And those fine lines are looking smaller, too! (Or at least, they’re not getting any deeper.) Apart from its effectiveness, there are three things I love about Dr. Hauschka’s Daily Revitalizing Eye Cream: its formula is smooth and fast-absorbing, meaning I can apply it immediately before putting on makeup; the squeeze tube makes it easy to get exactly as much product as I need without wasting any; and the tiny tube doesn’t take up much space in my tiny bathroom! The only drawbacks? At $52 a pop, the Daily Revitalizing Eye Cream is a little pricey for me—although one tube will last the better part of a year, so it’s a good investment. The product also contains fragrance, the ubiquitous and mysterious ingredient that is usually a sign of chemical involvement.
