Facetheory – Ocuwake eye cream
I’ve wanted to try something from Facetheory for a long time so some time ago I’ve ordered a few things from their shop including this Ocuwake Eye cream.
The Ocuwake Eye cream EYE1 key ingredients
vitamin C – brightens dark circles, fights signs of aging
ferulic acid – fight signs of aging
liquorice – has skin calming properties
chamomile – soothes the skin

Ocuwake eye cream – my opinion
Because of all the hype around Facetheory cosmetics, I was expecting a spectacular product. I am a little bit disappointed because the Ocuwake eye cream feels very basic. I mean it works well, it makes the eye area moisturized and nourished. Besides that, it absorbs quickly so it’s perfect when you are looking for an eye cream that you can wear under makeup. It is not sticky and has a pleasant texture.
I was using the Facetheory Ocuwake eye cream every day for more than two months already and unfortunately, I haven’t noticed any brightening or depuffing effects. That’s why I am disappointed because after looking at the ingredients list, reading the Facetheory product description and reviews on their site you can expect some spectacular results.
I am not saying that it is a bad product. It’s a very pleasant daily eye cream and the packaging is huge, inside the tube we can find 30ml!!! of the cream. Maybe my expectations were too high because of all the hype.
I can recommend this eye cream if you are looking for an lightweight cream that smooths the skin, hydrates and absorbs quickly. If you are looking for depuffing or dark circles reducing products then I’d go for another product.

The cream is available through the Facetheory site. It cost €18.99/30ml.
