I had a sample for Skinfood’s Royal Honey Eye Cream and I’ll give a short review for it here. It’s part of Skinfood’s Royal Honey line, which seems quite popular. The packaging of this line is very nice, too. All products have a yellow color with brown stripes somewhere, referring to bees :D
The description on Skinfood’s official web page says:
Details: A treatment eye cream with royal black honey and royal jelly extracts that moisturizes and adds a nice honey glow to delicate skin around the eyes.
Royal Black Honey: Royal Black Honey is natural raw black honey from South Asian forests, one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Royal Black Honey enriches with a myriad of nutrients that are amazingly good for the skin.
* To Use After toner application, apply around the eyes with gentle strokes.
The packaging of the sample is really cute, as well. It’s shaped like a honeypot and has a bee swirling around it. :D
The cream itself is a rich creme. It seems richer than Skinfood’s Salmon Brightening Eye Cream (review >>here<<) and its consistency is thicker. I didn’t have the feeling that the cream emulsifies on the eye once you start blending it in. It needs longer to absorb into the skin than the Salmon Brightening Eye Cream, too. Nevertheless it moisturizes really good. Due to the rich, creamy consistency it doesn’t feel as light as the Salmon Brightening Eye Cream. I didn’t see any effect on dark circles though. The cream has a pleasant honey-like skin, which is not to intense
All in all, I would say that Skinfood’s Royal Honey Eye Cream is a good moisturizing Eye cream which nourishes the skin under your eyes really good. But for use during daytime I’d prefer the Salmon Brightening Eye Cream, which also performs better with dark circles.
