The future is in sight...

Is there any area of one's skin more in need of tender loving care than around the eyes? Creams, serums, lotions and potions that specifically target this most sensitive of areas have formed a thriving industry all of their own, and any new product will have strong competition. Into this crowded marketplace comes Dr Barbara Sturm's own, simply-titled Eye Cream.

Developed by Dr Sturm (a world-renowned expert in the field of non-invasive anti-ageing) this eye cream targets exhausted eyes, taking on swelling, bags and dark circles. Like all of Dr Sturm’s products, it combines potent natural compounds with "medical molecular active substances" which protect against skin ageing and assist in regeneration, which is particularly important around the delicate eye area. 

I tried this product and I love it. Upon first application is wonderfully soft – unlike some thicker creams – and and makes my eyes look so much better underneath, where I have the beginnings of dark spots and wrinkles. Not only that, after applying the cream first thing in the morning, any signs of puffiness/tiredness were well and truly gone. Many skincare companies peddle a pseudo-medical angle, but you do feel that Dr Sturm's undeniable experience and qualifications lift her products that bit higher than the everyday creams out there. I will keep buying this product, after the complimentary pot I was sent for this review. It's a little expensive (£105 from Space NK) but it's well worth the money.
