The best eye cream I’ve ever used
…AND IT ISN’T A CREAM
It seems I’ve been searching for the best eye cream my whole life, trying dozens of brands every price point. The Purist Delicate Skin Serum was formulated to revitalize the face, and also happens to be the best solution I’ve experienced to moisturize the delicate eye area and diminish fine lines and dull, rough areas.
Our anhydrous formula softens crow’s feet, helps reduce dark under eye circles, firms, and tones like nothing I’ve tried. It’s also the best for reducing puffiness to brighten the skin around the eye area and prepare for concealer or makeup application.
WHY AN OIL VS CREAM?
“Oils serve a similar function to traditional eye creams; however, they use an oil vehicle and often contain all-natural and botanical ingredients,” says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, a dermatologist at Zeichner Dermatology in New York City.
“Eye oils do not contain water or water-based ingredients” says Dr. Hadley King, a dermatologist at Day Dermatology & Aesthetics in New York City.” If you’re prone to puffiness, an eye oil could be your best bet over a cream.” And we’ve added Arnica Montana flower from Alpine meadows to further combat puffiness.
DON’T BE AFRAID OF PLANT OILS
“Oil” used to be a dirty word in skincare, because no one wants to appear greasy. Today’s beauty industry has definitely come around to oils, realizing that it’s not about cutting out all oils, but rather about using the right ones. Beauty brands and shoppers alike decided to ditch mineral oil and petroleum products and its pore-clogging ilk, instead turning to lighter, antioxidant-rich versions, many of which absorb so quickly they feel “dry” to the touch in seconds.
THE PURIST Delicate Skin Serum was formulated for sensitive skin, which makes it ideal for the eye area because it is free from all potential irritants that could leave the eye area red or contribute to dark circles.
This serum is the epitome of an anti-aging antioxidant nectar with Pomegranate, arctic Cranberry, Camellia, Hemp, Nepalese Goji, and natural Vitamin E from Sunflowers.

HOW TO USE
Use slow pressure on the pump to disperse about half a drop. Massage under the eye for daytime, and over the entire eye area at night until it disappears. Night-time is your skin’s chance to recover and repair. If you don’t use eye makeup, then it’s fine to use over the lid area for daytime as well. If you’ve used too much, keep spreading and massaging to treat more areas
