Product review: Consonant Organic Eye Creams

When it comes to facial skin care, many of us are discovering that organic and natural products are the way to go. This is especially true when treating the skin around the eyes, which is the most delicate skin on the body and should be treated with a little extra TLC. Eye creams are created so that they have higher concentrations of ingredients that hydrate the skin, preventing fine lines and wrinkles. Think of a juicy, hydrated peach versus a prune.

We could all use a little help around the eyes, especially those of us with wee ones, or evening jobs, who are up late into the night. Any help with puffiness and wrinkle prevention we were willing to test out!

The claim of the brand: “Consonant Body Organic Skincare is the first line of premium skin care that is as luxurious as the most expensive fashion label brand, as effective as the best-known cosmeceutical brand, and as healthy as the leading natural brand.”

How to use the products: Consonant Ultra Moisturizing Organic Eye Cream and Ultra Firming Organic Eye Cream were developed to be used together for best results.

In the morning, after washing your face, apply Consonant Ultra Moisturizing Eye Cream, in place of your facial moisturizer. The product contains zinc oxide which helps you out during the day by: 

  1. Firming the skin around your eyes
  2. Reflecting light to give the impression of brighter, more lively eyes (moms take note!)
  3. Offering moderate protection from the sun for the delicate skin here.

At night, after cleansing your face (remember to remove all that makeup) apply the Ultra Moisturizing Eye Cream. This will help out your skin in its nightly routine of regenerating cells and correcting damage done by UV rays during the day.

Remember for both products a little goes a long way.

What was great about the product:

  1. The product is made with certified organic ingredients.
