Skin Wisdom Youth Protect Eye Treatment Review

Skin Wisdom Youth Protect Eye Treatment Review

If you've been reading my blog for a long time, you'd know that I don't really use eye creams much. 

I've used the Simple one (review here) before but that's about it. I've never really seen the point in it, but now that I'm not as young as I used to be, I figured I should really start looking after my face better, especially my eyes. I've always tended to neglect my eyes and looked after the rest of my face because well, for the longest time, acne prone skin had always been a higher priority for me than getting wrinkles. 

So I've begun the hunt for the perfect eye cream for me. And so far, despite this being only my second eye cream, I really, really like it! So I thought I'd share my thoughts on it (^__^)

Skin Wisdom Youth Protect Eye Treatment Review

The Skin Wisdom Youth Protect Eye Treatment is actually a Tesco own brand product. In fact, they have a whole line of skincare that is directed at three age groups - 'Youth Protect' aimed at 20-35 years, 'Ultimate Lift' for someone 35-50 years of age, and for the ones from 50-65+ years there's 'Age Delay'. I think it's really good that they've done it like that, it really helps newbies (like me) when it comes to anti-ageing skincare.

Also, you wouldn't think that it was an own brand just by looking at it would you? Supermarket own branded products always put me off a bit. Yes, I am a bit of a makeup/skincare snob.. but I'm a little less so after this find though. :D

Onto the actual product itself; I think it did a fantastic job! It comes out a little runny but I like that as it's not too thick and absorbs into the skin straight away. It kept the skin around my eyes hydrated all day, I never once felt any tightness or dryness after using this.

Also, it has a very slight scent but it's not unpleasant, and it fades away almost immediately, so nothing to worry about there! As for the brightening part, I don't really have dark circles so I can't comment on that I'm afraid.

Packaging wise, I really like the fact that it comes in a tube, because I hate dipping my fingers into pots - it always feels so unhygienic and makes me cringe no end. *shudders*

So in conclusion, when this finishes.. I will definitely be popping back into Tescos to repurchase! I highly recommend it if you're looking into a budget friendly eye cream and if you're in the 20-35 age range. It's only a fiver, and Tesco's always has some kind of offer on their skincare - I mean, I got mine for half the price :D 

Have you tried any of Tesco's skincare products?
