A couple of years ago I started to experience problems with my under eye area. I do have pretty nice skin in a way it’s not sensitive at all. I can use whatever I want. Unless on my eye area. That area turned into a trouble zone and whatever I put on it, made my eye super, super dry, painful and red. A very unpleasant feeling. I have tried tons and tons of product but nothing seemed to work. A couple of months ago I was over it and I just wanted something that was going to help that piece of my skin, so I decided to purchase the Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Recovery. A very luxurious and pricy product, but one I had faith in. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now, so I feel like it’s about time for me to review it. If you’re interested in finding out if this is the miracle cream for my eyes, make sure you continue reading this post!
The Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Recovery comes in a super fancy packaging. The box is already fancy and it even opens in a very cool way. The colours they used a very calm and give this a really professional yet fancy look. When you open up the box the little tube reveals itself. The bottle is rather small, but for an eye cream I think it’s quite alright. It comes with 15 ml of product which is standard for a product like this one. You only need the tiniest little bit of it per application so this bottle will last you for quite some time. I’ve had it for over three months, used it daily and it’s still going strong.
The bottle itself looks really pretty and fancy too. You can tell they did put thought in it. The bottle is designed in a very simple and chic way and it comes with a huge pump system. I think this makes it look a lot more fancy, but it’s also a lot more hygienic than it would have been if it didn’t come with a pump. The pump is really easy to use, you can easily control how much product comes out and that’s a big plus for me too. The only little thing I can say about the pump that I don’t like is that, more often than not, the first piece of product that comes out has gotten a bit hard and is therefore not as easy to use. It’s a bit dry and normally I wouldn’t use that, but because this is so pricy I make it work. This already happens after a couple of hours and so far I haven’t found a way to prevent it from happening.

According to Sarah Chapman this Skinesis Eye Recovery is going to combat aging around the delicate eye area. It has a multi-functional formula enriched with vitamins and antioxidants that target dark circles, puffiness and lines around the eyes. Combining innovative peptides with makeup technology, the eye treatment effectively reduces the look of lines and ageing, performing a botox-like effect to instantly plump skin and disguise tiredness with hyaluronic filling spheres and optical diffusers. They say that eyes will look younger, smoother and more energised. It’s suitable for all skin types.
Something I really like about these claims is that they claim this eye cream isn’t just targeted at like fine lines or at dark circles, it does it all. And to me that’s pretty unique, I haven’t heard about a ton of eye creams that do this too. This way you don’t have to chose between which problem is most important to you, you can get it done all at once.
For me anti-ageing and lines around the eyes aren’t that big a deal just yet, I mean I’m only 21 at this point, but well, you can never start too early. For me however the main thing I want to get from this is proper hydration on my eye area and reduced dark circles. Those are my two main focus points so that’s what I’m going to talk about in more detail now. I’m sure it will work for fine lines, but I simply can’t tell you guys about my experience with that because I don’t have any.
The consistency of this eye cream is really nice. It’s a combination of a gel-cream feel with a touch of actual creaminess. Because of the gel feel it feels nice and lightweight on the skin and its absorbed very quickly. Because of the creaminess the cream feels nice and hydrating at the same time and it gives it that soft feel. It’s a really nice combination. You also only need a tiny little bit of it. The amount I have on my hand in the picture is enough for both eye-areas. I think that’s a really big plus, especially if you take the price of this cream in consideration. I wouldn’t want to have to repurchase this every month.
In terms of hydrating the under eye area I actually think it does a good job. First of all it doesn’t irritate my eye-area, which is a first, and it feels really nice as well. After you’ve applied it you can instantly tell the area looks more smooth and hydrated. It feels softer and more ‘plump’ and that’s a good feeling. After using this eye cream for a couple of months straight I’ve also noticed some more long-term effects. I’ve noticed that my eye area looks smoother in general, there are no signs of dryness. And I’ve also noticed that my makeup goes on much smoother around that area these days.
In terms of dark circles and puffiness I think it works well too. It’s not a concealer so don’t expect it to completely cover them up, but it does give you a more awake look. Because it adds that plump look to the eye area the puffiness won’t be as apparent anymore. It also really does make sure my darkness isn’t as dark anymore and because of the hydration the area has more of a healthy glow which helps with the awake look too. All in all it’s definitely effective on this front.
In conclusion I’m actually really impressed by the Sarah Chapman Skinesis Eye Recovery. It was a bit of a bet whether or not my skin was going to react badly to it, but in the end there was nothing to be scared of. My skin actually loves this stuff. I really like the formula on this product and I definitely feel like it improves my eye area on multiple levels. This is by far the most well-formulated and most effective eye cream I have ever used. It’s a great multi-purpose product and therefore great for literally everyone!
That’s pretty much it for today. Thank you guys so much for reading today’s review and be sure to let me know if you think this pricy eye cream is worth the pay or not!
