Academie Eye Cream/Primer Review.
I've been using the Academie Smoothing Care For Eye and Lip Contours* for almost six weeks now and I am loving it. I would have reviewed it sooner-as I knew early on that I really liked it- but I like to try and use skincare for as long as possible before reviewing it.
This is kind of like a cream/primer hybrid. It prevents, and smooth's deep lines around the eye area and apparently improves make up wear on the lips- a lip primer? To be honest, I haven't tried this on my lips at all so I can't review it with regards to that but I have been using this as my everyday eye cream for quite a while now. What I love most about this is that it leaves the skin feeling mattified- not in a horrible dry way- but its a nice base to apply my under-eye concealer to. I've found that my concealer lasts a lot longer with this as it isn't an overly-rich or greasy formula. It also feels lovely and cooling on the eyes-which I love for early mornings, it really helps to wake me up by tapping this lightly under and around the eye area!
Academie is a French brand that is now available in Ireland- I'm very interested in trying more from this brand as I love this product so much, so I'll keep you updated if I do!
