Review: Prometheus Cosmetics Wide Awake Eye Cream

(image source
I never really thought about using eye creams. I don't have super puffy eyes, dark circles, and at almost 22 I only have one little line under each eye (which already worries me). So, I spent the money on MAC's Fast Response Eye Cream, and needless to say, I was disappointed. It felt pretty heavy, and is pricey, and didn't seem to do much.

After purchasing my first Pretty Pink Box, info here, I recieved a full size eye cream from Prometheus Cosmetics.

Info from Prometheus Cosmetics:

"Wide Awake Anti - Oxidant Eye Cream - This multi tasking eye cream is an instant eye brighter that provides deep hydration to smooth and soften fine lines while reducing dark circles.
Green Tea and caffeine reduce puffiness while cucumber soothes and cools upon contact. Vitamin E and soy repairs skin imperfections and discolorations while adding radiance to the skin. "


$16.00 for 0.5 fl oz. This is a decent size bottle and should last me at LEAST 6 months-1 year. I've had it for about 3 months and don't even think I've put a dent in it. I think the price is perfect for what you get!


I LOVE the packaging. I'm not a fan of tubs (hygienic reasons, yuck!) or tubes, because you have to unscrew the cap and that takes to much time (high maintenance much!). The packaging on this is actually really neat! If you look at the picture, there is a dark pink circle on top. You twist the bottle and that pink circle pops up and locks in place so you can pump it! You need less than a full pump for BOTH eyes!


Compared to MAC's Fast Response Eye Cream, this feels more like a cream as opposed to a gel/silicone like MAC's. On top of that, its super light, yet really hydrating! Like I stated above, I need less than one pump for both eyes. When I smooth it under and all around my eye, my fingers just glides over this product! It prevents almost all tugging even when I "rub" the product in. Im not much of a "tapping" person when it comes to the eye area, it annoys my finger, so I love the fact that this product causes no tugging while I rub the product in with my ring finger.


There is a super light, clean scent from this product. Like a cucumber scent. Very lovely.

All in all, I adore this eye cream, and when I run out, will definitely repurchase this!
