Hello and welcome back to another skincare review, I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Today I will be sharing my review of Alpha H Absolute Eye Cream SPF 15 and my experience using it.
Alpha H Absolute Eye Cream SPF 15
Introducing Alpha-H’s SPF 15 eye cream. I’m not going to sugar coat it, I found this eye cream to be awful. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE other Alpha-H’s products and there is another eye serum from Alpha-H that I received, and that one is ‘THE ONE’ . As soon as I receive and review it I will post a link to it in this post.
Anyway, back to this eye cream, every time I used this product my eyes would puff up, get red, water up, sting and I had trouble seeing. I would end up having to wash it off just to be able to see!
I don’t know if I had an allergic reaction to the product but I have read other reviews of people having similar reactions.
What it looks like
The product comes out with a slight tint. Not to worry though, once you rub it in the colour disappears. I don’t know if the colour is due to the SPF or if it’s just the product.
I’ve never used an eye cream with SPF in it.
To be honest my experience with this SPF eye cream put me off of trying another. The applicator is a glide on type, but for some reason, it came off when I took the cap off.
This is what it looks like once it’s rubbed in, the colour disappears!
Here is the back with the ingredients listed and instructions for use.
My experience with this product was very unpleasant. I was really looking forward to using this product as I am a big fan of the company itself.
I tried to use it several different ways thinking maybe I was putting it on too close to my eye, I tried using it further away from my eye, starting at my cheekbones, but still had the same reaction.
Luckily I wrote to the company I purchased it from and let them know about the reaction I had. They offered me a refund/store credit with instructions to send it back. Unfortunately, I was unable to get to the post office due to illness, so I wasn’t unable to send it back.
I was really thinking of throwing it away but the thought of the price I paid was like a stab in the heart.
I’m going to mix it in with my moisturiser for the SPF benefit so I can try to use it up. Hopefully, I don’t have the same reaction as before.
Have you tried this eye cream before? I’d really love to hear your thoughts on this if you have tried it and if so hopefully you had better luck with it.
