The REAL BEAUTY Secrets from Our Best-Selling Eye Cream

The REAL BEAUTY Secrets from Our Best-Selling Eye Cream

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

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.

The Manuka Doctor 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.”

Not only is the Manuka Doctor Eye Cream loved by REAL BEAUTY Testers and our customers, it has also been approved by the world leading Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) and is loved by movers and shakers within the beauty industry too. 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!

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.
