Kenzoki Belle De Jour Angel Eyes Review

We all know how stress can wreak havoc on the skin but now you can fight it with Kenzoki’s latest Angel Eyes from the Belle De Jour range.

Containing White Lotus, Angel Eyes claims to significantly boost the appearance of younger, healthier looking skin by reducing the effects of cortisol, aka stress hormone. In clinical trials, levels of cortisol in saliva were shown to decrease by a whooping 13% after a single application. Angel Eyes also claims to improve the production of beta endorphins and promote an overall feeling of well-being.

The first thing that I noticed is the pretty packaging. The Angel Eyes comes in a sleek white bottle with a single lotus blossom on the cap. A soft brush is also included for application. While the idea is thoughtful, I don’t find the brush to work that well in blending the eye cream onto the skin. Plus you will have to wash the brush regularly to keep it clean which means more work. Guess I will just stick to my ring finger.

The eye cream itself has a soothing White Lotus scent just like my beloved Relaxing Whipped Eye Cream, also from Kenzoki. The texture is slightly heavier than the Relaxing Whipped Eye Cream but still on the light side. It goes on very creamy and sinks in nicely without feeling greasy. The pump also dispenses the perfect amount for both eyes so no product goes to waste.

Whenever I put the eye cream on, my eyes feel rested immediately. In the depuffing department, I would say it is average but it does do an excellent job in keeping the eye area smooth and hydrated. The best part is how it made my undereye circles fade and after just two weeks! As much as I love the Relaxing Whipped Eye Cream, I am never going back after the Angel Eyes!
