This is a long overdue review indeed. I started using the Belif Peat Miracle Eye Revital Cream 2-3 years ago, but mostly on sachets which renders a full review difficult, so I only gave a brief review on my Belif brand overview here. But now, since I need to clean up on my “stock”, I finally opened this beautiful jar full of nourishing goodies for my eyes area.
Review Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream
The Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream is housed in a beautiful greenish plastic jar. There is 25ml of product inside, and it is retailed for 6$. Normally, I will wait until my birthday month, or any other promotional activities to enjoy 10-25% off Belif products, so this is considered an eye cream <50$ for me.
The texture of Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream is wonderful. It is super nourishing, like oil balm. But once you spread it out, it gets absorbed effortlessly into your skin like gel cream. It is nourishing but surprisingly lightweight.
Review Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream Ingredients
Main ingredient here is 0.5% peat extract, which is essentially an anti-aging component with antibacterial, antifungal, astringent and photoprotective benefits when applied topically. The best thing is the GABA (aminobutyric acid) that can help to stimulate collagen production on your skin. Peat is one of the reasons why sometimes organic waste can be preserved for a long period in mud, which is mainly attributable to the antibacterial and antifungal abilities of this substance. Sounds like mummifying, right?
The Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream is also formulated with Napiers’ AA “anti-aging” herbal formula, moisture herbal formula as well as original formula. I have talked about them numerous times in my previous Belif reviews. Basically, the AA formula are things like licorice root extract, yarrow extract, horse chestnut extract to smooth wrinkles, lift up the skin, tighten up your pores, and reduce melanin synthesis that can make your skin appears brighter and younger.
Napiers Moisture herbal formula features oat kernel extract, lady’s mantle extract, catnip extract, raspberry leaf extract, calendula flower extract, chickweed extract and wild indigo extract that moisturize and soothe your skin. All these are coupled with the skin clarifying and hydrating Napiers Original Formula consisted of althaea flower extract, meadowsweet flower extract and pansy flower extract.
We also have shea butter extract and panthenol for added hydration and comfort. I am surprised with the addition of mica and titanium dioxide here, which are two key ingredients in most eye cream that intends to give that luminous effect. It is the “magic” that makes your eyes area brighter and clearer than it should be!
Review Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream Performance
Honestly, I kept Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream for too long, so I noticed that it has slightly deteriorated. The texture turns a bit oily which means the emulsion is no longer stable. It is also not as nourishing (but not greasy) as it was when I first encountered Belif Peat Miracle Revital Eye Cream.
But asides from those inconveniences, this eye cream still nourishes my eyes area really well. I will just use my clean fingers (after-showering) to scoop the product out sometimes when I am too “lazy” so I like the convenience of this eye cream instead of having to use a magic wand like SK-II RNA Eye Cream. It absorbs really quick into my skin despite the creamy texture and my fine lines don’t deepen after using it.
However, I didn’t notice any notable wrinkles reducing effect after using this eye cream. The lifting effect is also just normal for my age. My mom also wasn’t super vowed by this eye cream or claimed that it firms up her eye area after using it. She likes it, but not overly impressed.
In short, a great addition to the peat line I must say. Velvety soft texture that blends seamlessly into the delicate area around your eyes. Your eyes will thank you for nourishing it with this miraculous cream. But apart from its quality ingredients used, nourishing but non-greasy texture, this eye cream doesn’t do much for my wrinkles and fine lines. It also doesn’t visibly firm up the area around my eyes. A good-to-have eye cream, that is definitely better-made than A.H.C eye cream, but not a must-have. If I were to choose between this and SK-II, I will still prefer SK-II.
Hope my review above helps you to make a better shopping decision. See you guys in my next post “Dr Jart Cicapair Cream Review“!
