LA ROCHE-POSAY HYALU B5 EYES REVIEW

There are many La Roche-Posay products in my skincare arsenal that I treasure.  I have been incorporating La Roche-Posay into my routine for over 6 months (featured here and here).   I’ve loved that their products have minimalist yet efficacious formulas with La Roche-Posay Spring Water, a powerful healing antioxidant.  Needless to say, I was excited to try La Roche-Posay latest dermatological skin solution, HYALU B5 EYES.

Fact 

We blink approximately 10,000 times per day!  The skin around the eye is very delicate, up to 5 times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face.  This area also lacks oil producing sebaceous glands and has a thinner dermis that keeps the skin firm and elastic, and is therefore one of the first areas to show dehydration.  This combined with modern pressures from stress to diet and hormone changes all have an impact on our eyes.  For those with sensitive skin, the eye contour is especially susceptible to irritating ingredients and other external factors.

HYALU B5 EYES is formulated to target signs of ageing and tiredness around the eye contour area.  The formula combines a replumping and repairing complex.

  • HYALURONIC ACID: A molecular duo of two hyaluronic acid spheres of high and low weights simultaneously provide both surface and deep hydration, working to plump and hydrate the eye area.
  • VITAMIN B5: A high concentration of Vitamin B5 (5%) stimulates cell turnover, improving barrier function and helping to repair the delicate skin on the eye contour.
  • THERMAL SPRING WATER: La Roche-Posay’s signature Thermal Spring Water provides instant relief and is clinically proven to soothe sensitive skin.
  • MINERAL PIGMENTS: Provide an instant flawless effect and the perfect base for makeup 

I have been using the eye cream twice daily for 2 weeks and am loving it.  Firstly, the texture feels extremely elegant, creamy and velvety.  A little goes a long way!  With my 2 fourth fingers, I gently tap the product around my eye contours and upwards to my temples.  My skin seems to soak up the cream pretty fast.  It feels very hydrating, soothing and plumping without any oily or greasy feel.  What I really love is the minimal migration into my eyes, such an important requirement in an eye cream for me.  Also, Hyalu B5 Eyes makes a great base for my makeup to sit on top.  After 2 weeks of regular use, I have noticed that the skin around my eyes has become more even, firmer and fresher looking.

Final thoughts

Such a fantastic addition to La Roche-Posay effective and soothing range!  With the weather transitioning to the colder months, Hyalu B5 Eyes fits right in my skincare routine.

You can find La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Eyes (£25/8g) on Boots, Look Fantastic, Feel Unique, Escentual and independent pharmacies.
