Review: Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream

Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream 30ml MYR 178

After actively using eye creams or serums since 2 years ago, it dawned to me that it is something that one should not neglect. It is essentially as important as your serums or creams for face. Many close friends or family I know, still have not started using eye cream or eye serums because they feel that it is not something important to concentrate on. If you are aware, most people will comment " You looked tired. Is everything ok?" or " You didn't sleep last night ar?" just by looking at your eyes area. They wouldn't look at the condition of your skin and ask those questions, would they?

Most also claim that eye serums or creams are sometimes more expensive than for the face itself. Honestly, I have to agree with them on many 'ridiculously priced' eye creams available in the market. With that comment, it brings me to this item, which I am going to review. Well, you've certainly seen a few reviews I've done under the Antipodes brand and finally, this will be the last lot of product. I bought this ( on a discounted price of course ) when I ran out of my DeVita Eye Cream. I was very, very reluctant to purchase this initially because if the price tag but buckled when given a fair amount of discount.


Product Description

A luscious yet light eye cream providing a cooling, soothing treatment for the delicate eye area. Rich in Vitamin C from the New Zealand kiwi fruit to help moisturize and soften fine lines. Fragrance-free and suited to most skin conditions.

Ingredients
Water, avocado oil, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol( coconut derived ), cetearyl wheat straw glycosides, steraic acid, glyceryl stearate, vitamin E, carrot oil, kiwi seed oil, borage oil, gluconolactone, sodium benzoate, calcium gluconate, vinanza grape seed extract.

My Experience

The eye cream is rather rich, semi-thick in consistency, with a faint beige tone to it. Because the product comes in a small jar, I usually use clean Q-tips to get a small amount out to avoid contamination.

For both the eyes, I use a tiny bit ( a size of a grape seed ). Though it seems little, it is sufficient because the cream is thick. Moreover, I wouldn't want to risk having milia seeds if the amount is more. I have been consistently using this every night since last November, ( which is 7 months ), and yes, it has kept my eye area hydrated and moisturised. So far no milia seeds sighted. The same goes to no softening of fine lines nor cooling treatment ( as claimed ).

Overall

Simple and easy review for this product since it is only, at best, kept my eyes area hydrated and moisturised as said earlier. Am I disappointed ? Well, at least  amongst the claims, I can only agree with one...

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.

  1. I love this eye cream, definitely one of my faves. I agree completely that it didn't live up to the claims but...it didn't cause milia, kept eyes hydrated, lasted forever, and worked wonders on dry patches all over the face. xo

    1. Initially I was so optimistic about it but the longer I use it, the more dissapointed I felt. Hmmm...maybe I should try your method by working on dry pacthes on face:)

  2. I dont use eye cream, as I'm fairly certain my dark circles aren't going to change and I'm not sure whether it's worth investing in something... are you still using this product? Be interested to hear how its going.
