TEN Revive Eye Contour Cream

RRP: £21.99 for 30ml

--What does the promo say?--
"-TEN-™ Anti-Age Revive Eye Contour Cream with dual synergy action, reduces fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area, using a combination of sweet almond oil, shea butter and argireline. The skin around the eye is ten times thinner than other areas and with 10,000 movements a day just from blinking, an eye cream is an important part of your skincare regime to reduce wrinkles."

The bronze and white colour scheme is modest and modern, while the large pot is a generous size compared to normal eye creams. The opaque plastic jar also gives a sophisticated feel to the product, while the plastic white screw-top lid makes it easy to use. However, the pot is slightly bulky due to its size and shape, meaning it could be less productive for travel.

Gently use your ring finger to blend a small amount of the eye cream (think the size of your smallest fingernail) into the skin around your eye. Easy.

A white cream that leaves no visible traces on the skin.

Nothing discernible; surprising, given the presence of the shea butter and almond oil.

--Texture and consistency--
Absorbs quickly and without stickiness, caking or excess product being left on the skin once dry. Good stuff. 

--Effects on the skin--
There is definitely increased radiance, and the delicate skin around the eye seems well-protected from dryness. There also does appear to be a small reduction in wrinkles, although this could be just an illusion created by the greater radiance.

--Value for money--
It's well-known that for anti-ageing anywhere on the body, use of a good moisturiser is required (not even specifically an anti-ageing one), and since I like the radiant and softening effects that this one gives, I would definitely consider using it, particularly given that the RRP represents superior value for money given not only the quality of the product but also the amount that you get. Even though I was sent my pot by TEN's lovely PR, I would without doubt purchase my own and recommend that others do the same.
