Until very recently I hadn't heard of Vine Vera, a high-end skincare brand who utilises Resveratrol, an anti-oxidant found in red wine and grapes. A naturally occurring antibiotic, Resveratrol is believed to slow the ageing process, working to improve skin health and elasticity.
Over the past month I've been trying the Vine Vera Resveratrol Dark Circle Eye Cream*, and I've become completely smitten with the way it makes the delicate skin around my eyes feel. Designed to immediately reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffy eyes, it has been formulated with Resveratrol and Caffine alongside Vitamins A and E. The consistency is perfect for me; I like eye creams which feel like they're doing something, whilst also making my skin feel nice upon application and the Resveratrol Dark Circle Eye Cream does exactly that. A luxurious cream formula which once applied to the orbital bone sinks into the delicate skin beautifully. It feels cooling and soothing on application, and when used in the mornings is the perfect way to refresh tired eyes.
Best used daily, I started using the Resveratrol Dark Circle Eye Cream just in the mornings, but over the weeks I've loved how my skin has felt afterwards so much that I have also been using this as an evening eye cream too. I never thought I'd switch my Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye for any other eye cream, but this one has really taken top spot for me lately. After a few days use I noticed an decrease in how puffy my eyes were in the mornings, but continued use over the past few weeks has shown me the biggest benefit with this 50g pot of goodness - dark circles are visibly reduced, so much so I can even get away with using less of my correctors and concealers!
My favourite benefit of this eye cream though goes beyond reducing the signs of tired eyes and dark circles. After each application my skin is left feeling softer and more hydrated, and this feeling is one that lasts. The texture of my skin in the delicate under eye area is smoother to the touch, and those annoying little bumps I sometimes get when I've slacked on regular sleep have massively improved. On days where I wear makeup after application, I find my bases stay in place much, much longer, with no product collecting in creases under my eyes throughout the day as they usually would. My under eye area looks and feels plumper, more refreshed and youthful.
Reviews online for the Resveratrol Dark Circle Eye Cream are nothing but glowing, and after trying it for myself, I can see exactly why. At $296/£195.44, this isn't going to be within everyone's budget, but for those whose budget can handle it, a 50g pot is sure to go a long way; I find just a small pea sized amount of product for both eyes is more than enough.
