[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Although on the whole I am not a believer in eye creams and rarely use them (I just can’t fall for the myth that eye skin is so very different to other facial skin) I am a bit seduced by the fact that this new launch from Bobbi Brown doubles as a primer. It puts it into a different category because if you like either primers or eye creams why wouldn’t you have something that does both?
I’ve tried this over a few days only so I don’t have any longer term benefits to report, but in terms of comfort and hydration I can’t fault it. It’s a fairly standard eye cream formula – hyaluronic acid, caffeine, vitamin B – but put together nicely so you feel you’re getting something rich but not greasy – in the same way its sister product, Vitamin Enriched Face Base, gives that feel to your complexion.

The priming aspect is interesting because it feels like it’s not going to add longevity to any eye make up because of the richness, but I feel it did. It’s not on a par with Urban Decay Primer Potion (which is the best there is, in my view) but it did the job especially around smoothing the lid for a more seamless shadow or concealer application. It’s quite satisfying to have something you can use all the way around the eye from the underneath to lid. It’s £34 HERE, non affiliate HERE, and a little goes a long way.
