Boots is an international pharmacy-led health and beauty group. The company has high end s well as extremely budget friendly cosmetics. Today’s review of the Boots Essentials Fragrance free Eye Cream is an extremely pocket friendly (in terms of cost and size also) product. I go this in the customized hamper that my sister gifted to me on return from her trip to Bangkok. I really hope that Boots comes to India soon since they have some of the most wonderful and innovative products.
Product Price: £1.50 for 15ml
What the company says about Boots Essentials Fragrance free Eye Cream:

Gently apply to the area around the eye. Use morning and night for best results.
My Experience with Boots Essentials Fragrance free Eye Cream:
The eye cream comes in a pale blue tube with a cobalt blue screw cap. It a small and a travel friendly size. Since it has been mentioned that the cream is fragrance free, I was anxious to see if the claim would stand true. I was pleasantly surprised that it is completely fragrance free. In fact it does not even have the chemical smell which I find in fragrance free products of other brands.
The cream itself is like a thick moisturizer. which holds it form. A small amount is enough to cover the area around the eyes. The eye cream spreads very easily. It gets absorbed within a minute. It does not leave behind some greasiness. The skin around the eyes feels hydrated. I have not had any rash or any kind of allergic reaction to it. The area around my eyes is a little sensitive and any product containing whitening agents make my eyes twitch. I have not had any such problems with this cream. The company has mentioned that it can be used in the morning and night. But I like to use it at night only otherwise it affects the lasting time of the eye makeup.
