Hello! I’m excited to share another review of mine. Since I have hit the end of my 20’s I have always been mindful of using anti-aging products and do my utmost power to prevent… (DUN-DUN-DUN) some type of wrinkles and well, aging in general haha. Retinol is a popular ingredient I am sure most have already heard or seen in many beauty products containing retinol. Pretty much retinol is a form of vitamin A, that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
I have seen the brand, The Inkey List many times in my social media and was also influenced by beauty bloggers to try it out.
About The Inkey List:
I respect the values and their transparency of their products. I also read confirmation of a trusted source I follow from Cruelty-Free Kitty of Inkey List products being cruelty-free but their website doesn’t mention it (?). The products contain some vegan ingredients but not 100% vegan.
Their products are also recyclable by cutting the edge of the tube container and taking off the cap.
I ordered the eye cream the end of January this year at Sephora on their website and it arrived pretty fast, probably the same week I ordered. I used their free shipping coupon and was almost tempted to buy more things but didn’t. I bought it for $9.99 USD excluding tax for .5 fl oz/ 15mL. Part of the reason I also bought the eye cream was that I had milia around my eyes and read that retinol is very good for treating and preventing milia. I thought that trying the Inkey List would be a good time to use to replace my empty eye cream.
The packaging is very simple and consistent with the black and white box. The tube looked surprisingly bigger than I expected and I guessed that it’ll last for a good while, which does so far. The scent is light and somehow similar to a hint of avocado scent I previously used from a different product. The fragrance doesn’t linger at all and disappears after a while.
The texture is creamy and spreads easily, I normally use about a pea-size for both eyes at night. The cream settles pretty nicely and doesn’t feel dry.
Overall, the product did help me maintain some of my milia but I can’t help but think that the product is too gentle? I am seeing the 3% retinol in the ingredients and I do appreciate that it is gentle on the eye area. I just can’t recall any significant changes as far as my milia disappearing, even the fine lines on my eyes. I have 1-2 deep lines under my eyes and I figured it’ll be difficult to disappear anyway. I also did not see any new lines either which I think is considered a win so I’ll still continue to use it for now. I used the eye cream from February this year up to today.
Hopefully you found my review helpful for anyone looking for a new night time eye cream! Let me know if you know any good treatment for milia.
Thank you so much for reading! Till next time!
