Skin Virtue Pure Line Repair Advanced Eye Renewal Complex

Last week, I posted a glowing review on a product in the Skin Virtue Pure Anti-Age range – the Super Nourishing Cream Cleanser.  Today, I am going to review the eye cream in this range – Skin Virtue Pure Line Repair Advanced Eye Renewal Complex (RRP $68 AUD for 15ml).

Product Description

A deep penetrating ultra rich eye renewal complex formulated to replenish eye contour area.  Provides extra moisture needed to fight first signs of aging while immediately softening fine lines and wrinkles.  Continued use of Skin Virtue Pure Line Repair replenishes skin moisture balance, providing nourishment to revitalize eye contour area leaving it refreshed, renewed and radiant.

My Opinions

Do you know what is complex about Skin Virtue Pure Line Repair Advanced Eye Renewal Complex?  The unnecessary long name!

Apart from that, I am in love with the adorable packaging.  It’s so cute.  I don’t know if they were going for ‘cute’ but I just love that it’s a dinky bottle with a pump.  So much more interesting than the other eye creams I own – squeezy tube or glass jar.

Be careful when you first use the pump and don’t do a full squirt like I did which resulted in too much cream for my eyes.  Only a gentle tiny squirt of the pump is required to retrieve sufficient product for both eyes.

I do not use eye creams every day as I find them too rich for my delicate eye area and develop milia (whiteheads) easily.  Removing them is an eye-watering painful process (I squeeze them) so I was not prepared to use Skin Virtue Pure Line Repair Advanced Eye Renewal Complex daily to see if it would produce milia around my eyes.  But I did use it every second day for 4 weeks.

This eye cream glided onto skin easily and it was non-greasy and absorbed easily.  My dark circles did not get lighter but I noticed less puffiness.  The ingredient list contains moisturising and beneficial ingredients so I am sure with time, I will notice more improvement with the skin around my eyes.

Likes Cute pump packaging, nourishing ingredients, reduced puffy eyes
Dislikes No SPF, complex name

I feel extremely blessed that I was sent a couple of products from the Skin Virtue range to test out.  I found a fantastic cream cleanser which has cemented its place in my Winter skincare routine and the eye cream has shown promising results in the relatively short amount of time I have used it.  There are more products in their range that I will be keen to purchase to test out.

ROC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Correxion Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream

I have always struggled to find a decent eye cream.  Most of them are too rich for my delicate eye area and as a result, I get little whiteheads (aka milia) around my eyes.  And it is a painful procedure to squeeze them.  (Erm, I don’t think it is recommended to squeeze them, but I do it anyway!)  Anyway, I bought a new eye cream last year to test out and here is my review on ROC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Correxion Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream.

ROX Retin-Ox Cream, ROX eye cream

Product Description

A light moisturising cream that combines 3 powerful anti-wrinkle ingredients to smooth wrinkles around the eye, even the deep ones.  It also contains a “light capture” technology to help fight the appearance of dark circkles.

ROC scientists have identified 3 major causes of wrinkle formation : slowdown of cell renewal, decrease of collagen and degradation of elastin.  After years of research, ROC has created a unique technology to help fight wrinkles where they start by fighting these 3 causes of wrinkle formation.

Product Ingredients

ROX retin-ox ingredients

A powerful combination of 3 anti-wrinkle ingredients : retinol, hyaluronic acid and biopeptide, is released to help regenerate cells, increase collagen synthesis and stimulate elastin production.

Product Claims

Day after day, your skin is smoother, plumper, more radiant.

Week after week, even the appearance of deep wrinkles is reduced.

Method Of Application

ROX Retin-Ox eye cream application

I like to apply 3 dots of eye cream at the corner of my eyes (the crow’s feet area which is the wrinkly bit) with my pinky finger.  And then gently use a tapping motion to massage it in.

Please note that I do not use this product daily because like I mentioned before, I develop whiteheads easily from using eye cream.  But I have been using this 4-5 times a week.

My Opinions

  • I like the ingredients retinol and hyaluronic acid – which are known to help fight wrinkles and plump up skin.
  • This eye cream has a gel-like texture which is light and absorbs into my skin easily.
  • Comes in a 15ml tube and is going to last me a long time.
  • Can only be used as a night eye cream…why?  Read on…


As a newbie at beauty blogging, I have started looking into product ingredients.  I am shocked to discover that retinol and sunlight do not agree with each other!  Retinol is a form of vitamin A and yes, it does help reduce wrinkles and firms up the skin BUT it also increases the skin’s sensitivity to light.  Retinol when used in direct sunlight can actually deepen wrinkles!!  (source here)

As a result, I have had to change my routine and I only use skincare products containing retinol and any of its derivatives at night now.  Please check your skincare products carefully.
