Hydropeptide Eye Authority Review + Giveaway

Hydropeptide Eye Authority and I have a two-year strong relationship. This isn’t a fling, maybe I’ll try another eye cream in a few months kind of love affair. I’m committed. Deep love, ya’ll. For the longest time I settled for mediocre eye creams while searching for a budget friendly product [$50 or less]. The skin around your eyes is delicate and needs sweet loving, not some basic meh-it’s-okay eye cream.

First, you need to know your new BFF skincare ingredient: peptides. Peptides are proteins that strengthen and feed your skin so it’s well nourished and behaves and looks as if it were younger. There are tons of peptides with varying health effects on your skin, they’re the shit. Eye Authority is loaded with them:

  • Relaxing Peptides keep muscles relaxed and minimize muscle contraction…similar to Botox.
  • Anti-Puffiness Peptides improves drainage. The eye area tends to be stagnant causing puffiness.
  • Anti-Dark Circle Peptides improve circulation and prevents fluid from building up.
  • Anti-Glycation Peptides prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
  • Lifting Peptides are wrinkle reducing and stimulate collagen.
  • Illuminating Peptides speed up skin metabolism and brighten. You can actually see the effect slightly on my hand.

 

Hydropeptide Eye Authority

Product: Hydropeptide Eye Authority
What it is: A fancy eye cream.
Claims: Immediately brightens dark circles, diminishes the look of expression lines, wrinkles and puffiness.

Application: A little bit goes a long way. Start with a half-pea amount, beginning application under eyes and applying left over residue to your brow bone. If you need more, go for it, but start small.
FYI: Personally, I feel like the results are cumulative after continuous use. My dark circles are non-existent most days and I wear far less concealer. When I smile I have a lot of expression lines around my eyes, especially when I’m dehydrated. Eye Authority gets rid of them. I know, I’m 30 and look like I’m 12 but I swear I have baby-wrinkles. Stop judging me. Hydropeptide uses vacuum pump packaging so you get every last bit out. Really. I’ve taken mine apart to find everything gone. There are a few pore-clogging ingredients in the formula but I haven’t had issues with congestion. Hyaluronic acid and ceramides are in the mix providing hydration.
Where to buy: Hydropeptide $74, Nordstrom $74

  1. I’m looking to start a good anti aging skin care routine. I’m pretty young and live in a college town so I mostly want college students to stop thinking that I’m older than I actually am.

  2. Thank you so much for doing an eye cream review! I’m on the hunt for a new, stronger eye cream now that I’m even closer to the big 4-0…yikes! The good news is that I’ve been on really good skin care routines since my early 20s so many people still think I’m 25! I’m keeping it going but want to kick it up.

    I’m looking for an eye cream that will fight off incoming wrinkles, decrease existing fine lines and firm up the skin around my eyes especially my eye lids. I feel like they have gotten crapey (sp?) and lost elasticity. I have a little puffiness and my circles aren’t too dark. This eye cream sounds great so I’m excited to see if I can get a sample at Nordstrom first to test out. How do you feel about Retinol/Retinoid treatments for the eye? I’ve just finished Dr. Gross’ Ferulic Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum which I honestly didn’t notice any improvement. I was thinking about prescription Retinol from my dermatologist to use in conjunction with another eye cream. I also use a daytime eye cream with SPF for extra protection.

    I’ll be exploring more of your blog for additional recommendations. I just started a blog and Instagram so your blog is great inspiration!!

    1. Prescription retinol is too much for the eye area, in my opinion. Most products made for the eye area containing retinol likely have a very low amount so sensitivity won’t be an issue. If creping/loss of elasticity is your concern I would try Hydropeptide Uplift as it’s designed specifically for those concerns!

  3. Well…I’m currently looking for a new eye cream- I have been using AGE eye by skin ceuticals and I just find that it’s eh so so. I want my eye cream to de puff and help me look like I actually got the sleep I need haha. Also all the anti aging and anti wrinkle fighting too! Always hard to find the perfect product that works just for you 🙂

    1. AGE Eye Complex is a great product, too! I find it tends to be a better fit for mature skin that needs correction instead of prevention. But you’re right, everyone is different and hunting down the right fit for yourself can be daunting.
