Dr. Roebuck's EYE Regeneration Cream Review | The case of the missing lid
Friday, September 16, 2016
I have a funny story for why this review is missing an actual photo of the product I'm reviewing. The jar above you see is the Dr. Roebuck's EYE Regeneration Cream, which is new to Murale and Canada. Made in Australia, Dr. Roebuck's is a family run business started by twin daughters Zoe and Kim based on formulas first concocted by their father to create gentle, non-irritating products without unnecessary chemicals and fragrances. Dr. Roebuck's is well known for their PURE and FACE moisturizers and the EYE cream is the complimentary product to those for the eye area. This eye cream is designed to reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines with its potent mix of moisturizers, antioxidants and amino acids derived from natural ingredients.
Now back to my story. I'd been using this cream for several weeks and right before I was getting ready to actually photograph and review it, I somehow one morning knocked the lid off my counter. Not a big deal right? Well, apparently this lid fell into a black hole because I turned my whole bathroom upside down and could not find it! I looked behind the sink, on the floor, behind the counter and shelves and within my shelves, all to no avail. Thankfully I had a couple of travel jars available, but I am still disturbed at night about where that lid went!
I love trying out eye creams as it's so tricky to find a good one. Right off the bat, I was really impressed by the size of this cream. The jar is quite massive, but don't get too excited; when I had to depot this, it ends up shrinking down to a standard 15 ml.
The Dr. Roebuck's EYE retails at Murale for $39.95 which isn't too bad for a mid-priced brand. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any info on its ingredients so no comments on that. What I can say is that this cream is deliciously rich and creamy. I love to pat this all along my under-eye area and immediately my skin feels softer and less papery. It absorbs quite readily as well, so you can use it during the day too.
As for long-term effects, I haven't noticed any change in my fine lines yet, but rarely anything does for those *sigh* I think this cream did give a slight improvement on the darkness under my eyes, but primarily I think this one just does a good job at hydration.
Buy - reasonably priced and has a rich, moisturizing texture that feels really nice after a long day at the computer.
