Pai Echium & Argan Eye Cream

A Model Recommends is a big fan of Pai Skincare, and the eye cream in particular. My quest for a decent eye cream continues; for some reason my eyes seem to be really sensitive and water almost with the touch of any cream. So, I thought I'd give this one a try.

First, some background on Pai Skincare: it's a British skincare company that produces products particularly with sensitive skin in mind. It's organic - obviously - and the company prides itself on being very clear what ingredients are in the bottle. It's been around since 2007 and all the products are manufactured in West London. I like the philosophy: how does the product stack up?

The echium and argan gentle eye cream  is extremely light and hydrating. The website tells you 'it's rich in rare and incredibly effective forms of Omega 3 & 6 that smooth and soothe the delicate eye area'. Also it helps 'improve the appearance of fine lines, keeping skin soft, plump and beautifully supple' thanks to the linolenic and steridonic acids.

I've been using this for more than a month and can confirm it does smooth and soothe the eye area - it's definitely helped with my dark circles too. The cream isn't scented and a little goes a long way. I use it under the eye and on the orbital bone - and I use it both in the morning and at night.

The only issue I have is the packaging: it's impossible to tell when you're getting low on the cream and suddenly, one day, you just realise you've run out. That's not ideal if you're not the type of person that keeps back-ups.

But, that's the only issue I have. This stuff is a pleasure to use and I'll definitely repurchase. It's £28 and you can buy it online here and here.
