Cheap & cheerful Eye Creams: Anatomicals

I don't have much experience with Anatomicals as a brand besides indulging in some of their self tan lotion last summer and reading the rather hilarious text they have their products covered in. You've got to love a brand with a sense of humour. It works quite well at distracting consumers from the usual money hungry corporate image. 

Anyhow, we're talking about Eye Creams today because 

a) You NEED them. No matter how much you deny. No matter what your age. The area under the eyes does not naturally produce any oils at oil which means it's your responsibility to keep it loaded with product 24/7.

b) They're usually pretty pricey and darn hard to find a decent one in drugstores. 

I usually find it quite tricky to find a good eye cream that will hydrate the under eye area for under a tenner. Hence my absolute favourites being Origins GinZing and Ahava Extreme Firming Eye Cream which are both heavy on the pocket.

These two from Anatomicals however come for under a fiver each. Not only do they look super cute, come jam packed with a tonne of product but they also work decently to calm down puffy eyes, dark circles and provide a good moist base for me to slap on some concealer over it, without that area feeling taut. 

Both have a light gel like formula, great for those of you who cannot stand heavy, greasy eye creams. Having said that, I quite like the fact that besides being light in texture, they work so well as moisturising the area so it looks plump and fresh.

Get the blue one if you suffer from late nights, dark circles and puffiness all around the eyes. If you like your eye creams to target wrinkles, fine lines and to have more of a moisturising quality, then the hot pink one's your best bet.

For some reason they are available at a tonne of varied prices all over the net. I know for sure that you can get them at Selfridges, Boots and ASOS online.

I've heard good stuff about these, and I think this has just about convinced me... I could do with the de puffer I think, I could always do with a bit of help in the mornings! x

Great review on the eye cream, I've been looking for some recommendations as I only have on thats quite expensive and was looking to try a lower end brand one. Will def be picking these up next time I'm in boots.

I looked at these a while ago and I didn't get either as they didn't sound that amazing - definitely going to look into them more now though :)
