Save Your Sensitive Eyes During Allergy Season With Consonant Body Eye Creams.

I’m allergic to nature.  And Toronto being a pollen party right now is not helping my case, either.  My symptoms?  Sneezing and insanely itchy eyes.  Luckily, I have Consonant Body eye creams in my skincare regimen, and boy oh boy are they ever saving my eyes this time of year!

Consonant Body Ultra Firming Organic Eye Cream

Meant to be used during the day, Consonant Body Ultra Firming Organic Eye Cream ($36) is a saviour for itchy, swollen eyes.  I have some fine lines under my eyes, but my biggest eye concern is right now is puffiness.  I have been using this for over a month now and I’m happy to see my fine lines softened.  Oh, and you know what’s awesomer?  (Yes, awesomer is a word, shut up!)  What’s awesomer is that I have also noticed less puffiness under my eyes, even when my allergies are really bad.  I’ve been religiously using this everyday, so I know that it really works.  It is non-greasy and sinks in quickly, which makes it a perfect base for my concealer.

Boost Hydration with Ultra Moisturizing Organic Eye Cream.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Glyceryl Stearate, Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Butyrospermum Parkii, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil, Niacinamide, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Cassia Olea Europea Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis Seed Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Zinc Oxide, Linum Usitatissimum, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil, Lactoperoxidase, Glucose Oxidase, Algae, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Chamomilla RecutitaLeaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Echinacea Angustifolia Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus Extract, Rosemarinus Officinalis Extract, Calophyllum Tacamahaca, Alpha Bisabolol, Malileuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid.

Consonant Body Ultra Moisturizing Organic Eye Cream

Their night eye cream, Consonant Body Ultra Moisturizing Eye Cream ($36), is super hydrating that it should win an award.  My vigorous eye scratching always makes my eyelids sensitive and dry, but this eye cream takes care of the job easily.  I also like to use it to soothe flaky areas around my nostrils, and on days when my skin is especially thirsty, I even use this all over as a rich night face cream.

Both eye creams do not contain any of the bad stuff: phthalates, petroleum, silicone, synthetic colour or fragrance, synthetic plumping agents, and parabens. Yep, all Consonant Body products are 100% natural, which I always appreciate.  Because of this, the eye creams don’t irritate or sting my sensitive eyes.  Seriously, these are heaven sent for us “sensitive to nature” types. ;)

Great News!  I’m an Eye Cream Convert!

I didn’t use to think that eye creams actually did anything until I tried these, so I’m giving them a two thumbs up!  They are expensive at $36 a pop, but that’s how much I would pay for eye cream at the spa or at Origins.  Do you have a favourite eye cream, too?

How’s everyone else dealing with their allergies?  I got a fresh refill of my prescription eye drops, Patanol, from the pharmacy and hallelujah! I can actually get through my days without clawing my eyeballs out. :)

    These sound really interesting. Where can you get Consonant products?

      D’oh stupid me! I forgot to include that info. You can get them at some Sears or The Bay stores, or check out the list here.

    I did notice The Bay now carries Consonant. I’ll probably give them a try at some point – currently using an Ole Henriksen eye cream right now that’s also very decent. The itchy eyes happen for me in August when I literally cannot function for 3 days at least. Every year without fail.

      You have to try, especially if you have sensitive eyes. I also like another from Origins (Eye Relief or something). :)

    Great post! I’ve been wanting to try these out but not sure which one would work best for me. I might have to see if I can get my hands on some samples first to try it out. Would you use BOTH of these (like one in the morning, one at night) or do you pick and choose which one to apply depending on how your skin feels that day?

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Hi Elaine! I use both; firming for the day and moisturizing for the evening. The moisturizing one might be too slippery for day use, especially if you wear under eye concealer. I’m not sure. But I guess if you don’t need that much moisture, the firming one would do just fine for day/night.

    Do you still love these eye creams? the tears from my allergy eyes is really burning the skin at the outer corner and under my eyes. Allergies stink!!!!

      I really do like these Christine! They are the most gentle eye creams. Sorry about your allergies. :(
