I know lately my blog has been very heavy in the skincare department when it comes to reviews but that’s simply because I’ve been going through products on my skin like crazy. With the weather changing every week to a different season, I’ve had to use different products every week to give my skin exactly what it wants. Some weeks it could be very warm here in Ireland which causes my skin to become slightly oily on my T-zone (I have Combo skin btw) so I prefer lighter products. Last week we had Storm Emma pay us a visit and with that came snow so my skin wanted hydration & moisture asap because it went very dry and dull. You see my point 😏.
For today’s post I want to talk about some of the products that I have been using recently from Bentley Organic. Bentley Organic is a UK brand that specializes in organic products and you guys know how much I love those. Their toner I have been using for the past month and I have completely fallen in love with it. It’s alcohol free, so I never find it to be stripping on the skin and it contains both witch hazel & Ylang Ylang which makes it definitely the best smelling toner ever. I’ve been using it both morning and night and find it so gentle, with it’s fragrance being very soothing. It’s also suitable for all skin types so that gives it extra brownie points in my book.
The second product that I’ve been trialing from this brand is their Reviving Eye Cream and unfortunately I didn’t like this at all. The only positive thing about it in my opinion is its packaging. It comes in a lovely 15 ml plastic bottle with a pump dispenser to it, so there is no annoying jar to open.
When it comes to the product itself I found that it was very heavy in texture and formulation for use on the under-eye area. Whenever I would apply this, regardless of how little I would use, I would find it to not absorb very well. I could also feel it on my under-eye area throughout the day which is a feeling I don’t like when it comes to my skincare. I personally think if this was a night cream then the consistency of it would have been perfect but for the under-eye it’s simply to heavy for me.
Let me know in the comments below any recommendations for any lightweight eye creams as I currently am in the market for one.
