{review} camp matcha latte eye cream

Camp Matcha Latte Eye Cream

An eye cream that promises to brighten, refresh, tone and de-puff is something to get very excited about.

Plus, the name makes me think my eye area is going to get jacked on caffeine making me look 10 years younger.

10 years younger with a lot of swagger.

Camp Matcha Latte Eye Cream_close up

performance: having just finished testing Josh Rosebrook’s Oculus Formula eye serum my eye area was already in pretty good form so I was curious to see what kind of effect this cream would have.

I did a side-by-side comparison (one eye got Camp’s Matcha Latte eye cream, the other continued to get Josh’s eye serum) and one result I saw at the end of 7 weeks of testing surprised me.

The cream, which is very light in texture making it easy for the product to glide onto the skin, delivered on its promise … it toned and brightened (I don’t have any issues with puffiness so I can’t comment on that).

The one result I was expecting was that it outperformed Josh’s formula to decrease my under-eye milia! They haven’t vanished, but they have been significantly reduced.

this is the happiest day

price: $46 for 0.5 oz glass jar

I’ve been using it every day for 7 weeks and have barely made a dent in it as you can see above so the cost per use is actual a fraction of a penny)

for-the-win?

    That sounds amazing! Definitely going to give it a try! was thinking of getting the one from josh but couldn’t justify the $! Any tips on reducing mila??

    • Ah the million dollar question! I’ve had them to one degree or another since university but find that since it’s caused when the skin has a build up of dead cells, and therefore clogs pores, I try to make sure I exfoliate that area (with a very gentle scrub like the one by Province Apothecary) in conjunction with facial steams and not using a heavy eye cream (which will only clog the pores further), For facial steam ideas check out my article here: http://lifeinblush.com/blog/brighten-your-complexion-with-a-herbal-facial-steam/
