Feliz Seis de Mayo! Did you all have a great Cinco de Mayo? We stayed at home, cleaned, and worked- but at least we spent the day together, so all good!
Did you see our post a while back about the Alteya Organics Bio Damascena Ageless Rose Otto Face Cream? If not, you can read it here; if you did see it, then you know it’s truly a beautiful product. It even made it into my February 2017 Faves post (read it here). Well, guess what?
Alteya Organics sent me their Rose Jasminium Active Vitality Energizing Eye Cream to try out! As you can imagine, I was really excited about this since I was so pleased with the Bio Damascena cream, and couldn’t wait to get this stuff onto my eye area!
For those who aren’t familiar with the brand, Alteya Organics is a family-owned company that grows and harvests roses and lavender. They distill premium organic rose and lavender essential oils, as well as flower waters, using recipes that are generations old. After years of research, they enhanced their proprietary steam-distillation method that combines science with 400 years of tradition. As a result, they’re able to extract flower essences that are dermatology grade and retain their therapeutic properties (Alteya Organics, 2018). With certified organic ingredients, it’s easy to see why their products are so loved!
So, this deeply moisturizing eye treatment is purported to help rejuvenate the skin, minimize dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. The energizing botanical blend helps to calm and brighten the sensitive eye area (Alteya Organics, 2018).
Key ingredients include Rose Jasminium Rejuvenating Complex, blue algae concentrate, and hyaluronic acid. The proprietary rose complex is formulated to enhance and beautify skin by reducing the visible signs of aging (Alteya Organics, 2018).
Blue algae helps activate hyaluronic acid in the epidermis to improve moisture levels and strengthen skin. It also helps protect the skin from pollution in addition to energizing and brightening the thin under-eye skin. Finally, hyaluronic acid revitalizes skin by replenishing it with essential moisture (Alteya Organics, 2018).
When I first opened the jar, it almost looked like it would be a balm texture. But then when I dipped a bit out, it was like a heavy cream- thick, but not like petroleum jelly. It has a very nice consistency, and even with the thickness, it was SO easy to spread, and didn’t my skin feel “suffocated” like heavier balms do.
The cream has a beautiful, fresh rose scent that’s natural, not fake. If you’re sensitive to fragrance, it may seem a bit much at first, but it does dissipate quickly, so no worries. I have horrific allergies and VERY sensitive eyes, and I’ve had ZERO issues with this.
I found that I can stash this in the fridge, and it’s even more soothing, especially during my really bad allergy attacks where my eyes are all sore and puffy- it does a great job of “calming” them down, reducing puffiness and irritation.
The cream wears well by itself, with other skincare products, and under makeup. After just a few weeks of using twice per day, the fine lines in my eye area look plumped, and the skin looks bright and hydrated. But, this is no surprise, considering how well I liked the brand’s face cream!
The Rose Jasminium Active Vitality Energizing Eye Cream is already very reasonably priced at just $30, but if you use code Renee5 at checkout, you’ll get 5% off- so head over to AlteyaOrganics.com now!
