Battle of the Eye Creams: Lady Soma Stem Cell + Collagen VS Made From Earth Chamomile Eye Therapy

It's been a while since I've posted - but what better way to get back into blogging than a product review featuring a battle between two eye creams from two sister companies!?

When I was contacted to review these products (the companies sent them along complimentary) I was really excited! Eye creams are something I love to use, but don't get to try out too often because it takes me forever to go through one. Which product did I like best? Let's find out...

FINAL VERDICT

Although they are both great products, and moisturize the eye area well, I prefer the Somaluxe Stem Cell + Collagen moisturizer from Lady Soma. The scent of the Chamomile Eye Therapy is too strong for me, and I find it slightly offensive and hard to handle even though it does fade with time. I have not noticed any major differences in my fine lines over the last couple months of use, and I have noticed no difference in the other imperfections in my eye areas such as dark circles and milia. I feel that I'd rather just keep the area nicely hydrated with cell renewal ingredients rather than use something that I need to keep track of how many days I'm using it etc. The stem cell moisturizer can also be used all over your face so it is a multipurpose product. I like it's thicker consistency, the way it makes my skin feel, and the scent of the product.
