I have never found a holy grail eye cream yet, so I was more than happy to trial the Dr Roebuck's EYE to see if this cream would finally be my elusive holy grail miracle eye cream!
I've now been using the newly launched Dr Roebuck's EYE for over a month and am comfortable reviewing this cream for you. I don't think you can accurately review an eye cream in any shorter a duration.
|Dr Roebuck's EYE|
Dr Roebuck's is an Australian owned and made, all natural skincare brand, created from a treasured family secret.
The brand was originally started over 30 years ago by Dr Roebuck to treat the eczema of his newborn twin girls. These twin girls have now grown up and are running the company!
All Dr Roebuck's products are free from parabens, sulphates, BPA, synthetic fragrances and colours.
Every ingredient used in Dr Roebuck's products is there for a reason. Dr Roebuck's has a minimal ingredients, maximum results philosophy.
Their ingredients are responsibly sourced, their products are ethically created and never tested on animals.
Yes, this brand is definitely ticking all the right boxes for me!
Dr Roebuck's EYE
Dr Roebuck's EYE launched in July 2016 and is available to purchase from the iconic Australian retailer, David Jones for $39.95.
It's accompanying blurb states that it is "designed to prevent premature ageing and vitalise damaged skin by harnessing the rejuvenating benefits of seven naturally potent actives."

These seven natural potent actives and their roles in Dr Roebuck's EYE are:
- Coconut Oil - deeply moisturises & hydrates to prevent premature ageing & the formation of fine lines & wrinkles
- Caffeine - reduces dark circles & bags
- Rosehip Seed Oil - regenerates skin to diminish wrinkles, whilst soothing & softening
- Arnica Montana Flower - aids specifically in reducing dark rings
- Vitamin E Oil - a powerful antioxidant that repairs damaged skin
- Lecithin - naturally moisturises whilst allowing each active ingredient to penetrate the dermis
- Sodium PCA - a highly effective natural amino acid that retains moisture in the skin to enhance overall skin elasticity.
I found the product to be a thick white cream with tiny black particles in it which you can just see in the photo above.
When applied however there is no grittiness to the cream and it goes on smoothly.
My skin feels richly moisturised and beautifully soft and smooth after use.
After a month of regular use, twice daily, the delicate skin around my eye does appear somewhat plumper and thus more youthful! Yay! However I can't really see a significant reduction in the dark rings or bags under my eye, but being realistic, I am in my late 40's and I don't think any cream in existence would be able to eliminate these for me now at my age!
I strongly encourage all beauty lovers, especially younger beauty lovers, to start using eye cream a lot earlier than I did to prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles for as long as possible! I think everyone should be using an eye cream regularly from the age of 20 onwards.
In conclusion, although I wouldn't call Dr Roebuck's EYE my holy grail of eye creams, I do love how intensely moisturising it is and how soft and smooth it leaves the delicate skin around my eyes.
I'm still to find that elusive holy grail eye cream and quite frankly I'm wondering if it even exists!
I suspect the older I get, the more fine lines and wrinkles I develop and the more puffy eyed I become, the more impossible it will be for me to find a holy grail eye cream - lol!
In reality I'm probably searching for a miracle!
Having said that, Dr Roebuck's EYE certainly ticks a lot of the right boxes for me and I would happily repurchase this product to achieve the ongoing rich moisturisation of my eye area it achieved for me.
For younger beauty lovers this eye cream could quite possible be your holy grail eye cream!
At what age did you start regularly using an eye cream?
