I like Sukin skin products. They’re made well with quality ingredients and are available at an affordable price. If you want consumers to switch over to better ingredients, having a decent price point is important.
Enter Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum, my most recent love. I’ve reviewed some of their other skin care products before and I decided to test out their eye serum because hey, my eye area needs help too and deserves to be taken care of. Besides, on top of being affordable, the Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum was also on sale.
Translation: perfect for a test run!
Product Review: What Ingredients are in Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum?
So, what ingredients are in Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum? You’ll find the following ingredients: aqua, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, cetearyl alcohol (and) ceteareth-20, glycerin, rosa canina fruit oil (rose hip), oenothera beinnis (evening primrose) oil, borago officinalis (borage) seed oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), cucumis sativus (cucumber) fruit extract, arctium lappa extract (burdock), urtica dioica extract (nettle), xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol benzyl alcohol.
Honestly, I have NO idea what most of that means. I recognize aqua, aloe, sesame seed oil, rose hip, evening primrose, borage seed oil, cucumber, burdock, and nettle, but I have no idea why some of the other stuff is in the Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum.
So, I read the rest of the packaging and find this information. The Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum contains no sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), no sodium laureth sulphate (SLES), no synthetic fragrances, no animal derivatives (it’s 100% vegan), no harsh detergents (not sure why that would be in there given it’s a cream), no propylene glycol, no artificial colours (that would be weird if it did), no triethanolamine, no mineral oils (thank goodness), no EDTA (double thank goodness), and no parabens (relief!).
So…whatever those other ingredients are I know they don’t fall into any of those categories which is reassuring given that many other eye care products have WAY MORE stuff on their list that make me feel like a science experiment.
Product Review: is Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum any good?
At the time of this review, I’ve used Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum for a good month if not more. It’s a very light slightly fragrant cream. It goes on easily and absorbs quickly without leaving an oily residue on the skin. I usually put it on my eye lids and under my eyes. The Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum seems to sit well with my skin. I’ve had no outbreaks, no rashes, nothing which is a very good thing.
Now, according to the packaging, the Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum is supposed to do me a lot of good. It’s supposed to rehydrate, improve my skin’s elasticity and texture, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Is it working?
I have no clue. While I am using the Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum, I’m not really very concerned about the wrinkles and whatnot. I can’t really tell if I have fewer lines or not because I’ve never really ever kept count. The way I see it, I’m supposed to get old. I earned it! I choose better quality products because I want to reduce my body’s exposure to yucky chemicals. If it happens to get rid of a few wrinkles here and there, great, but I’m not keeping track.
Do I like the Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum? Yep. It’s affordable, it’s made very well especially when you consider it’s price point (I picked it up for a bit over $10), and my skin likes it. When you consider how much most eye serums at your local drug store cost and then factor in the ingredients they’re made with, you begin to realize that Sukin is doing something right. If nothing else, the folks at Sukin are providing you with an alternative, an alternative to putting chemically based ingredients all over one of the most delicate parts of your face.
So, if you happen to come across the Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum at your local health food store, why not give it a try?
