Introducing Alpha-H’s SPF 15 eye cream. I’m not going to sugar coat it, I found this eye cream to be awful. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE some other Alpha-H’s products and there is another eye serum from Alpha-H that I received, and it’s ‘THE ONE’ . I’m planning to purchase it once I use up some of my other eye creams.
Every time I used this product my eyes would puff up, get red, water up, sting and I had trouble seeing. I would end up having to wash it off to just be able to see!
I don’t know if I had an allergic reaction to the product but I have read other reviews of people having similar reactions.
The product comes out with a slight tint. Not to worry though, once you rub it in the colour disappears. I don’t know if the colour is due to the SPF or if it’s just the product. I’ve never used an eye cream with SPF in it. To be honest my experience with this SPF eye cream put me off of trying another. The applicator is one of those glide on types, but for some reason it came off when I took the cap off.
This is what it looks like once it’s rubbed in, the colour disappears!
Here is the back with the ingredients listed and instructions for use.
My experience with this product was very unpleasant. I was really looking forward to using this product as I am a big fan of the company itself.
I tried to use it different ways thinking maybe I was putting it on too close to my eye. I tried using it further away from my eye, starting at my cheekbones, but still same reaction.
I did write to the company I purchased it from and let them know about the reaction I had. They offered me a refund/store credit with instructions to send it back. Unfortunately I was unable to get to the post office due to illness, so I wasn’t unable to send it back . I was really thinking of throwing it away but the thought of the price I paid was like a stab in the heart.
I’m going to mix it in with my moisturizer for the SPF benefit so I can try to use it up. Hopefully I don’t have the same reaction as before. I will keep you posted on that front.
