Horse Chestnut Flower

(Aesculus hippocastanum)

Our horse chestnut flower extract is grown on a cooperative organic plantation in the Ardeche Mountatins Regional Nature Park. The flowers are manually picked when they are fully open to avoid any damage.

Borage Seed Oil

(Borago officinalis)

Renowned for its fantastic moisturising properties, we source our borage from England, where the pure, GLA-rich oil is pressed from the shiny, dark brown seeds of the bright blue flower.

Echinacea Extract

(Echinacea angustifolia/purpurea)

Used for its toning and conditioning properties, Echinacea is native to North America. We source our skin-smoothing extract from within the United Kingdom, where the plant is harvested in July and August before the ingredient is extracted and micro-filtered from the flowers, leaves and stem.

Aqua (water), Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, PEG-60 almond glycerides, Glycerin, Decyl glucoside, Centaurea cyanus (cornflower) flower extract, Euphrasia officinalis extract, Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium hydroxide, Citric acid, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye cream A lovely light cream that blends in very quickly love this eye cream

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and light This cream appears to be tinted which I didn’t expect but once applied sinks beautifully in to the eye area, with no colour change. It has a light, creamy texture which blends in to the skin without any stickiness or tightness and as it says, instantly brightens the skin. You only need smallest amount to get good cover and the effect lasts all day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eye cream I bought this a couple of months ago. It's ok but I dont notice any difference from using a cheaper brand. I also wasnt expecting it to be skin coloured.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend I have been using Liz Earle products religiously now for over 5 years and this is the only item I would never buy again. I highly recommend the superskin eye cream, but would not recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just love this ! I am a total convert to this product - it is amazing ! I always struggle with eye creams as I have very sensitive skin and this is a real essential for me now ! Cooling when applied and also with skin colours particle that blend easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this as part of a package of Clinique products recently. I hadn’t used it before, but I must say I’m impressed with it. It smooths on so easily, is soothing and cooling after cleansing, and it does brighten up my eye area. Using this means I don’t have to rush to apply concealer and full makeup if Im not going out. I will buy this product again when it runs out, it’s a great addition to my daily skin care routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! I got this to hide under eye circles and it does indeed help with those. Would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mini marvel! It really does soothe tired eyes and hides dark circles. A friend lent me hers to try and it was brilliant so I rushed to order one- a real lifesaver!

I have dark circles not sure what eye cream to use  Do you send out samples to try 

Asked by: Kamy
Hello thank you for your message. We do not have samples to send, as we have such a generous returns policy. If for any reason your purchase is not suitable for your use or you do not like, we are happy to exchange or refund within 60 days of you receiving your order, even after you've tried it. We feel this is more beneficial to our customers than providing samples, as it gives you the opportunity to try the product for some time to decide if it is suitable for you before committing to your purchase. For dark circles, we would recommend our Instant Brightening Eye cream, as this lightweight eye cream leaves the entire eye area looking instantly brighter and feeling more hydrated, reducing the appearance of dark circles for a revitalised, wide-awake look. I hope this information is helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact us directly on 01983 813 913 if you require any further assistance. Best Wises - The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team
