Beauty Review: Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm.



It's Like a Primer for Your Tired Eyes!


On the lookout for a great new anti-ageing eye cream? Then, look no further than Dermalogica's Age Smart Multivitamin Power Firm. I first tried this out when I received a sample sachet and it had such an immediate tightening and brightening effect on the skin around my eyes that I had to rush out and buy the full size right away. This comes in a  15ml tube - and it is a beauty splurge at around £40/€50 -  but a little goes a long way. This is like a primer for tired eyes, with a velvety-smooth texture and pleasantly fruity scent.  

This also works to combat lines around the lip area, but I haven't been using it for that purpose, so I can't really comment on its effectiveness. My guess though is that if it's good for eyes, then it's probably good for lips too, right?

I've been using this as my morning eye cream for around three weeks now, and I love it. My usual morning eye cream (I use EsteƩe Lauder's Advanced Night Repair Eye in the p.m) is Clinique's All About Eyes which is also very good and it's less costly than this, so if you're looking for a great eye-cream that won't break the bank, that's a good bet, as is Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Eye Cream (everything in the No7 Protect and Perfect range is pretty much top notch and affordable to boot. I always get mine on 3-for-2).

One thing I have noticed about Mulitivitamin Power Firm is that in contains silicones, and a number of reviews I've read have noted concerns regarding this: namely that the inclusion of silicones means that the product sits on top of the skin rather than sinking into it, thus creating an 'illusion' of smooth skin rather than actually banishing lines and wrinkles. That's interesting to me - especially since this is like a primer for skin - and like any good primer it has an immediate mattifying effect. That said, this does absorb well -and quickly- into the skin, and it seems to be working for me. So far, so good.

It's also a good eye-cream for those of you with sensitive eyes.


So, what's in the tube?

Vitamin A.
Vitamin C.
Vitamin E.
Green Tea.
Red Seaweed.
Silicones.

    Thanks for the review! I was using a different eye cream by Peter Thomas Roth and I just ran out. I wasn't overly impressed with it, but I will have to check this one out. I have heard great things about the Dermalogica brand.

  2. Dermalogica is good! I like the Clinique eye cream too - all about eyes. You guys have so many brands I have never heard of - we don't have Peter Thomas Roth over here!
