Drunk Elephant C Tango Multivitamin Eye cream

Vitamin C is a must in my skincare regimen and the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum and their C Tango Multivitamin Eye cream are fast becoming staples on my vanity. I want to raise a glass….a post to the C Tango Multivitamin Eye cream today.

Now I am an eye cream junkie and always on the hunt for the best cocktail of ingredients. Packaging plays a big part too because I subscribe to the Paula Begoun school of thought of ‘ jars are bad’ 🙂 so pumps or tubes only.

Hydration and strengthening the skin around the eye is key for me. I am not looking for magic formulas for bags, lines and dark circles.

My bags and lines I will set aside for the surgeon’s knife 🙂 and dark circles? Jeez there a 101 factors that affect dark circles and while a basic goodnight’s sleep eludes me I will hire correctors and concealers to work for me!

Now I worry about about waxing eloquent about skincare products because it takes time to show results. Also many factors affect the efficacy of a product. How I am applying it, when I am applying, how often and the other products I am using in conjunction with it. Not to mention health, hormones and skin type. Anyway here goes;

 I watched Tiffany Masterson’s interview on Caroline Hirons’ channel and it got me interested in C Tango Multivitamin Eye cream.

The vitamin C is a plus for me ofcourse, but I also like the hefty list of ‘frees’ especially silicones because I really, really, really, really do not like the feel of silicone on my skin.

I really enjoy this cream. It has a thick consistency and I use half a pump (a fat rice grain size) for each eye. I tap it in first and then lightly massage my eyes around the orbital bone.

I have had no reactions to this formula, however I DO know some beauty vloggers did get an adverse reaction to this so please do check them out.  Puffin’s Wife & Just Buy The Makeup are the two I remember. Andrea Mattilano ? I can’t remember whether she had a reaction or not, but she reviewed it too.

Before trying the Drunk Elephant eye cream I would have probably re-purchased a previous staple of mine, the Kate Sommerville Line Release eye cream (read post here), or the Estee Lauder one that I tried and loved (read review here). But I like price and the ingredients in the Drunk Elephant C Tango so the others so that is here to stay.eye creams.001
