Hello everyone! Today is the first of a blog series I hope you all will like - Poundland Beauty. I think we can all agree that saving money and watching our wallets is something we all do - particularly when we have splurged in the month. It is also an amazing feeling when you find a cheap alternative to an expensive product. So I thought I would start this series! All of the products I will be featuring come to the grand total of, yes you guessed it, £1! These posts will come as and when I try products from the Poundland range so don't worry too much about half my content being disrupted! Anyway on to the review!
Poundland Beauty - Derma Nature Q10 Eye Cream
My first review is on Derma Nature Q10 eye cream. For the longest time I have wanted to introduce an eye cream in to my skin care routine. I have a day and night cream and a good skin care routine however an eye cream was missing. Eye creams always tend to be expensive which is why I was drawn to this cheap alternative. The little plastic tube came packaged in a nice sturdy box which is good for only £1. The packaging itself, particularly the tube itself looks pretty sleek too.
The packaging lists that it contains coenzyme Q10, jojoba Oil and Vitamin E. The packaging also states that the eye cream contains an anti-wrinkle formula and is soothing and refreshing. The packaging also states that this eye cream is made by Mellor & Russell which if you take a look at the Derma Nature range lists their eye cream with a RRP of £3.49.
The actual product comes in a squeeze plastic tube. As I said previously the packaging itself is pretty sleek which is surprising or such a cheap price. I love the applicator, it has a narrow tip, perfect for applying the little amount you need for under your eyes. The cream itself is white and actually feels like a mixture of a cream and a serum which is lovely.
So does this affordable product live up its claims? Well I obviously can't comment on its anti-ageing claims just yet... however since using this eye cream the skin underneath my eyes has been a lot smoother and alot easier to apply make-up too. Sometimes I think the skin just needs a good moisturiser to sort it out! The cream is also soothing and refreshing and produces a cooling sensation - for me this feels amazing after a long day under my eyes!
Overall I am very happy with this product. Usually I would say that 'you can't argue for £1' however I was genuinely surprised with this product. I think its perfect for those of you that like me are starting out with eye creams. Personally I feel like my skin at 21 is still going strong for now - especially since I have a good skincare routine currently - however I think that starting to use an eye cream has helped my skin even more!
Have you tried this out? What eye cream do you currently use? Let me know in the comments!
