Manuka Doctor Eye Cream Gets ANOTHER Seal of Approval from the Good Housekeeping Institute!

  • World leading testing institute recommends Manuka Doctor Eye Cream for Refreshing Eyes
  • Independent REAL BEAUTY tester awarded the Manuka Doctor Eye Cream 5/5 after a two-week test and review
  • Manuka Doctor Eye Cream stimulates surface circulation to improve dark circles and brighten tired eyes

Last year our Manuka Doctor Eye Cream went through thorough testing at the world leading Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI), with amazing results.

“With clear instructions and easy-to-use packaging, most testers found this product easy to apply. 94% thought that the cream was easy to distribute evenly around the eye area and they were pleasantly surprised with how quickly the cream absorbed into the skin, leaving no greasy or sticky residue. 83% said skin felt much more moisturised after using the product and 69% said skin felt firmer after the trial period.”

Now, our Eye Cream has been honoured with the title of ‘Best Eye Cream for Refreshing Eyes’!

“Claiming to boost collagen levels and stimulate elastin reproduction, this innovative cream features purified bee venom to help firm and plump up skin. Its non-greasy formula absorbed in a flash to refresh and brighten under eyes. Everyone found it soothing and hydrating, resulting in instantly reduced puffiness.” GHI

Th GHI has been rigorously testing products since 1900, from the longest lasting lipstick to the safest baby product! The GHI’s powerhouse team of engineers, scientists, analysts, and product experts test consumer products so that we can rest assured we're not wasting our money on poor quality items. Products are tested for safety, quality, and value, using state-of-the-art consumer testing methods.

Firstly, products are tested in the GHI labs by evaluating safety and quality claims. Then products are sent out to select readers to understand how they actually work in the real world. Only, after all that do they deliver their recommendations of approved products.

In this instance, The GHI tested the performance of 21 anti-wrinkle and dark circle eye creams using a VISIA Complexion Analyser, to assess the number of fine lines/wrinkles and intensity. Then over 430 of their at-home testers helped to assess the properties of the creams, such as texture, packaging and whether they made any visible difference to the skin after 28 days.

It’s not only the GHI that put beauty products to the test with real people, REAL BEAUTY Testers are an independent group of dedicated testers trying all things beauty in a ‘real’ world context. They are completely independent and all the results, are shared by the dedicated testers without input or sway from brands. Testers simply test what the REAL BEAUTY team put in front of them and give their feedback which they then share.

REAL BEAUTY Tester Hannah, from London recently awarded our Manuka Doctor Eye Cream 5/5 after a two-week test and review.

“The best eye creams are often hard to come by. But this REAL BEAUTY Tester gave this amazing tube, which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, a 5 star thumbs up” The REAL BEAUTY Team.

“This cream feels wonderful on, not too heavy and didn't cause any issues for my sensitive eyes. It has minimised my dark circles and moisturised the under-eye area well. It is smooth and just the right consistency for my delicate under eye skin. It is not heavily perfumed but has a clean scent. People even commented that I looked bright eyed. It is better than other eye creams I have tried and it is a reasonable price.” REAL BEAUTY Tester, Hannah, London

This best-selling Eye Cream hydrates and soothes dry, tired eyes with the inclusion of Manuka honey. The skin surrounding your eyes is more delicate than other areas of your face, which is why fine lines and wrinkles develop more easily. Collagen boosting Purified Bee Venom (PBV™) helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (1) and a flavonoid found in citrus fruits helps stimulate surface circulation of skin to improve dark circles under the eyes, helping to lift a dull complexion and refresh tired skin. This thinner skin around the eye area needs some extra TLC so botanical silicon and oak skin tautening tannins are clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines(2). An advanced Octapeptide is clinically proven to reduce the depth of deep wrinkles around the forehead and eye area(3).

“Excellent eye cream really brightens underneath the eyes.”

“Fantastic eye cream my dark circles are lightening and no more puffy eyes or fine lines no tired looking eye area.”

Not only is the Manuka Doctor Eye Cream loved by our customers and the Good Housekeeping Institute, it’s loved by movers and shakers within the beauty industry too and at a fraction of the price of other well-known brands. Runner up in the Eye Cream category of the Top Sante Beauty Awards, our award-winning Eye Cream beat other creams costing more than four times the price!

This is not the first time the Eye Cream has beaten more expensive eye creams. In a trial by The Sun’s Laura Stott, the Manuka Doctor Eye Cream beat another cream 20 times the price. With one of the testers claiming “I preferred Manuka Doctor’s cream which also contains honey. It felt comforting and gentle around the eyes.”

The secret is hydration – here’s why. The skin around your eyes is ten times thinner than the rest of your face so hydration is vital as this area tends to be on the dry side.

Thanks to the highly moisturising properties of Manuka Honey, our best-selling Eye Cream hydrates and soothes dry, tired eyes whilst collagen boosting Purified Bee Venom (PBV™) helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Don’t just take our word for it, trialists from the Sunday Mirror Notebook Awards reported that "it was especially good at making crows’ feet buzz off."

"I was very impressed with the effect it had on my wrinkles and crows feet. They were much improved and the eye area felt hydrated. You don’t need to use a lot of the product either."

Julia from Greater Manchester

How it works to banish dark circles

If you inherit fair or thin skin under the eyes, dark circles can be more obvious when blood pools there (often because of slower circulation from lack of sleep). Over time, skin loses collagen and thins, so veins show through more prominently. Citrus fruit flavonoids in the Manuka Doctor Eye Cream help stimulate surface circulation of the skin to improve dark circles under the eyes and lift a dull complexion, whilst refreshing tired skin.

Louise, a Manuka Doctor customer, agrees.. “I've been using the Eye Cream for a couple of years now and it does really work. It has reduced puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. I use it in conjunction with other Manuka Doctor products which are the best I've found for my skin.”

Easy and simple to use. The Manuka Doctor Eye Cream can be used morning and night to smooth and plump skin, targeting dark circles and wrinkles. Using your ring finger, gently dab it around the eye socket, avoiding the tear duct, as this can lead to puffiness.

Tip! Use a light eye cream to avoid puffiness. Overloading the eye area with a heavy moisturiser can leave eyes puffy.

“Ingredient of the moment Manuka honey gives this well-priced eye cream its hydrating properties. There’s bee venom to boost the collagen you lose with age and brightening ingredients too.”
Now magazine
“If you want to blur out wrinkles, our favourite Eye Cream is the Manuka Doctor Eye Cream infused with bee venom, which encourages fine lines to fade, and plumping manuka honey.”
Best magazine
“Plumping, brightening and bag busting, this eye cream might be small but it’s mighty. Manuka Honey brightens, hydrates and firms, while purified bee venom helps boost collagen levels, for an all-round rested eye area.”
