We normally like our eye creams on the thick, creamy side. So when we first unscrewed the top of Fresh Creme Ancienne Eye Cream and saw a consistency much like pure shea butter, we must admit we were both intrigued and petrified. Would this eye cream really work if it were so unlike the ones we’d come to know and love?
In a word, yes.
In a mere matter of weeks, the area around our eyes was noticeably lighter and had decreased in puffiness significantly. Our under-eye area feels so hydrated, thanks to ingredients like meadowfoam seed oil (to nourish the skin), jojoba seed oil (to restore suppleness) and moisturizing Vitamin E. You’ll even find anti-inflammatory-enhancing beeswax, soothing chamomile oil, toning lemon peel oil and calming rosewater within the formula.
But what we really love about it? The inspiration behind this luxurious eye cream! The first cream of the 2nd century A.D. inspired the creators of Fresh to come up with it. It’s hand-blended in a European monastery to preserve the fragile ingredients and its rich history. How cool is that?
We will caution you that Creme Ancienne doesn’t come cheap … it retails for $95. But if you’re looking to hydrate the under-eye area like never before, this is the eye cream that can’t be beat!
