The eyecream comes in a hygienic pump and has 15ml or 0.15 fl.oz of product inside. I consider it on the expensive side, if you think I paid $69 for it. The bottle is made of matte plastic and has a relative large cap.
The box has some information about the ingredient and how to apply the product.
Mmm, I am always a bit wary when companies are trying to convince you that something REALLY works. I notice the threefold RRR-technique which is probably thought over and over again at the advertisement department of Revance: shortly, to repeat a word three times with the same beginning letter has proven to linger longer in the consumers mind (ha ha, that explains why I called my blog BirkinBagBeauty...ya see)...
Ok,lets zoom in on the ingredients. The first ingredient listed is known to be the most important one of the entire product. The order of the ingredient list is NEVER random, which is important to know if you want to be a real beauty insider and check if your lovely product would be truelly effective.
Anyway, I should have done that before buying this, because I am not really fond of the listing.
The main ingredient is cyclopentasiloxane, which is a sort of silicone used for haircare and skin products (more accurate information over here and here).
That would be completely ok with me, but the second and third ingredients are dimeticones (silicones) as well. Dimeticones, according to skinmdnatural.com, "Dimethicones stay on or near the surface of the skin without getting below it". It is one of the main ingredients for primers such as Smashbox primer and its lesser known primer siblings, for it stays on the skin and optically smooths out lines and pores.
Phenoxyethanol, The fourth ingredient is a beautiful difficult name for a perservative (more info here). The only ingredient that could actually do something about your wrinkles is the fifth one: Zinc complex.
Ok, I am going to look at the product itself. I swatched a bit on my pulse.
I want to show you the close-up. I hope that it is visible over here, but if you are familiar with primer based products such as Smashbox, you might recognize the texture. Oh yikes, I did not spend $69 on a teeny bit of primer with a hint of Zinc complex inside?
I feel completely fooled and misleaded. Actually, I feel really stupid for not investigating the ingredient list beforehand. Anyway, should we all become cosmetic experts in order to buy products??? Only to know if you are not being set up??
Normally, I would rate this 'eyecream' one bag. However, I will give it two bags because it has no perfumes and did not irritate my eyes. It could still function as a face or eye primer, which reflects some light away from my wrinkles. On the other hand, I think you can better buy Monistat for about $60 less if you want to have a primer, only it would not have the micro-drop of Zinc Complex inside.
