If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I 'suffer' from dehydrated and dry skin, especially around my eyes. I have never found an eye cream that I have really liked and thought actually did something more than my normal face moisturiser. Over Christmas I got the La Roche-Posay Hydreane Riche (Moisturizing Cream For Sensitive Skin) and the Substiane Eyes (Fundamental Replenishing Anti-Ageing Care) and I am so impressed by both of these.
The moisturiser is a thick cream which feels incredibly hydrating and effective from the moment you apply it, it is also incredibly soothing. Because it is of a thick consistency, you can use it as a day or night cream because it sinks in nicely but it is rich enough to be used at night. It is also a great make-up base, as I find it really smooths out the surface of the skin.
The eye cream has been a life saver for me (total exaggeration, of course). This is more of a gel formula, which is what I tend to like in eye creams that I have tried before, but it also quite thick which means it really hydrates and soothes the skin under your eyes. The eye cream is quite pricey, but it is worth picking up if you ever see it at a discounted price or you don't mind spending a little bit extra on this.

As you can imagine, I highly recommend these products if you have dehydrated or dry skin, because I have really been enjoying using both of these :)
Both are paraben-free.
