I can’t tell you how exciting it is for me to discover new brands and what’s even better is when they are as promising as this one. Before I started to write about beauty I would pretty much buy products from a short list of about 5 or 6 brands. I bought what was right under my nose and what I could afford and I really didn’t know what amazing products are out there. I know that I’m only beginning to scratch the surface but little by little I find great brands and meet and engage with some lovely people who have great values and purpose. This brand, Thea, is one of my most recent discoveries. It was founded by Althea Tomlin in 2011. It’s inspired by the fusion of african and asian high performance natural skin care ingredients.
Thea Age Revival Uplifting Eye Care is a gentle high performance uplifting and toning organic enriched antiaging eye cream. It has an impressive list of natural ingredients that includes: organic aloe juice, hyaluronic acid, organic olive and jojoba oils, organic rooibos tea, organic lavender & pomegranate extract, evening primrose oil and organic blue algae.
For me eye creams are a big deal, at my age I need a lot of help with getting my eyes to look good. As a beauty blogger people take notice of what my skin looks like and the eyes are the focal point. I look for a product that lifts, tightens and smooth my eyelid so that when I apply foundation or eyeshadow it doesn’t settle in the fine lines and crepiness that are a fact of life for me. This eye cream from Thea ticks all those boxes for me. It’s rich and yet not greasy, it doesn’t make me have panda eyes by affecting my mascara and it doesn’t melt when I get warm (which I do often on the way to work on the tube). The most amazing part of it though that it has an almost instant lifting effect that I love!
A 15ml pot costs £19.95 here and for me that’s good value. I’ve been using it day and night for over a week and I’ve hardly touched it. If I was to make any criticism of the brand (and believe me its a hard thing to do) it would be that the packaging isn’t as luxurious or professional looking as I would like. I know I’m fickle and that I can’t wear the pot. But I just love my packaging and how my products look on the shelf. Still, I’m planning on trying out more products from the brand and if they deliver like this Thea Age Revival Uplifting Eye Care has then I’m pretty sure that I can get over how it looks on the outside.
Have you discovered any Thea products? I’d love to hear about them. Do leave me comments below.
I received this product as a PR sample. The views are my own and I wasn’t paid to write this post.
