If you're a regular reader of the Beauty & Lifestyle Hunter, you'd know that I have nothing but positive things to say about the cosmeceutical brand Medik8, so when the newest addition, the Medi88 Hydr8 Eye 360 landed on my desk, needless to say that I was excited…

I am at the age where a good eye cream is a vital part of my skincare regimen - not just due to age, but two toddlers keep me active throughout the day, and often waking me during the night, so I need all the help I can with fighting not only lines and wrinkles, but also keeping under-eye bags at bay.

The Medik8 Hydr8 Eye 360 is an all-in-one day eye cream, containing multiple active ingredients to help protect against everyday environmental factors with its SPF15.

The cream contains among others; 

  • Hesperidin - helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and under-eye bags.
  • Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (vitamin C) - an antioxidant which quenches UV-induced free radicals to fight against visible signs of ageing
  • Hyaluronic Acid - draws moisture to the eye area and provides long-lasting hydration
  • Caffeine - increases the microcirculation of blood vessels; helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness & dark circles
  • L-Carnosine - an active ingredient which quenches AGEs and helps stimulate collagen synthesis, as well as protect against photo-aging
This means that the cream is perfect for those looking for an anti-ageing eye cream to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, loss of collagen, and puffiness around the eye area. Due to the SPF, this eye cream is best used during the day only, prior to your usual moisturiser and makeup. The eye cream comes in a small tube, and the pointed nozzle makes it easy to dispense the tiny amount needed, without any wastage.
The cream feels quite rich, and it does take a few moments to absorb into the skin, but it is clearly intensely nourishing, so I don't mind as I can tell my eye area is clearly enjoying it. And once it has absorbed, it leaves the skin soft to touch and non greasy. I also love that it has next to no scent to irritate my sensitive eyes.  
And after just a few uses, I start to see the benefits. The skin around my eye area is clearly more hydrated and appears more plumb, with finer lines clearly minimised. I also notice that the bags and puffiness is reduced, and my whole eye areas in general simply looks clear, brighter, more awake and simply younger too. So yet again I can again say that I am nothing but impressed with Medik8.
