ORÍKÌ Mineralized Intensive Eye Treatment

Hi everyone,

 

So straight into today’s post- The ORÍKÌ eye cream! If you still aren’t using an eye cream or serum no matter what your age is, you are on a longggggg thing! Read more about why you are dulling HERE. On a serious note though, please incorporate a product for your eye area into your beauty routine today and thank me later. Has anyone seen Iman or Christie Brinkley recently? EYE CREAM.

 

 

I received the Eye Treatment in a fabulous skin treats goodie bag from the brand containing ALL the products I said I was excited about from the store launch. Honestly guys I was completely blown away. Thanks again.

 

 

What is it?

‘An intensive treatment creme that address the special needs of the Eye Zone, that are prone to visible signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and moisture loss’.

 

Whats in it?

Organic Marshmallow Extractaids to diminish dark circles and puffiness.

Calendula, Seabuckthorn (a berry with amazing skin nourishing properties), and sunflower oil to moisturise and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

 

 

I have every eye area issue known to man. Dark circles, fine lines, and a little puffiness sometimes. I usually don’t use eye cream during the day because I find it too rich for my already oily skin, which makes it a pain to apply makeup around my eyes because in less than two hours everything would have slipped off. I really like this product because it is moisturising, but it absorbs pretty quickly into the skin.

 

Shortly after applying it (using my ring finger in a ‘Press and Release’ motion under my eyes, my outer corners, inner corners and all over my eyelids), I find that the lines around my eyes are much less prominent and it reduces puffiness. My eye area visibly improves altogether. It does take some time to work though, so I would say use it RIGHT after cleansing. This way as you are going about your regular morning routine, the cream has time to work before you apply makeup. I actually cleanse, apply the eye cream, tone, moisturise, get dressed and sort my hair out before I put makeup on so the product has more than enough time to settle- but that’s me. Whatever works for you.

 

 

Another tip- put it in the fridge! It has an even more dramatic impact because the coldness really helps reduce any puffiness.

 

 

Its available at the store and on their website for N10,000. Eye cream is one of those products worth investing in though as eye area issues are so obvious and noticeable even with concealer. Plus a little goes a long way, so the bottle will last you for ages!

The ORÍKÌ store is located at 7B Oju Olobun Street, VI, Lagos. Website- www.orikigroup.com .

 

 

Do you currently use an eye cream or serum?

 

Let me know,

Nicole

      Hi there! Shea butter is amazing for body skin and hair, but I agree with Ari- it is really comedogenic and WILL clog your pores. However if it has caused you no problems yet, great! I’m just happy you are using something. Telling people about moisturising their under eye area is the joy of my life lol xx

        LOL @ joy of your life. Thanks for the warning.
        It hasn’t caused me any problems and I’ve been using it for years now.

    I use coconut oil to remove my eye make up.. It does so effectively whilst keeping my lashes lush. However, be careful as shea butter clogs up pores. It is very heavy a butter to be applied on any part of the face. But, hey if it works for you then that’s great Cec.

      Hey Ari! I used to use almond oil as an eye make up remover as well actually! Oils are excellent for removing even waterproof eye makeup and for feeding your lashes- but I found it gave me a LITTLE puffiness in the morning. Its been ages though, might be worth revisiting. And coconut oil is lighter than almond oil so I’ll try that tonight xx

      Thanks Ari for the warning about shea butter clogging my pores.
      I just haven’t noticed any breakouts due to the use. Also, I apply it lightly in my face as it’s heavy like you said.
