Beauty Obsession: 100% Pure Red Wine Resveratrol Eye Cream

Since the skin under your eyes is some of the thinnest skin on your body, it shows every sleepless hour, every ounce of dehydration. It’s one of the first places on your body to show signs of aging, and it’s one of my biggest skin woes. My dark undereye circles are my least favorite inheritance—it’s pretty easy to trace them straight back to my mom’s dad. (My sister has them too.)

Before I switched to natural beauty products, I tried just about every single eye cream (and concealer) on the market. It’s the one product I’m pretty religious about applying at least once or twice a day—sometimes three times! And now that I’ve made the switch to natural cosmetics, I’ve renewed my search. I’m planning try as many natural eye creams as possible. So far, this is the first one that’s been worthy of a review.

What I tried: 100% Pure Red Wine Reservatrol Eye Cream, $25. Resveratrol is the antioxidant in red wine that is suspected of being the key to red wine’s ability to help prevent damage to blood vessels, reduce inflammation, and help prevent blood clots—perfect for a girl who can use all the help she can get fighting puffy eyes and dark undereye circles.

First impressions: There’s an awful lot of packaging here, but it’s made of cardboard and is recyclable. Inside, the little jar that contains the eye cream is glass. I like that 100% Pure’s products are vegan, and the ingredients list makes me happy:

Organic Rosa Centifolia Flower (Rose Hydrosol) Water1, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Juice) Leaf2, Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Resveratrol, Wine (Red Wine) Extract, Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract3, Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Vitis Vinifera (Muscadine Grape) Skin Extract, Lonicera Caprifolium (Japanese Honeysuckle) Extract, Hyaluronic Acid

What caught me by surprise: It smells fruity! If you’ve ever been to a winery (I’m married to a wine expert, so this is something I have done many times), you know that sort of grape-y, earthy smell that greets you when you enter a cellar that stores aging wine in barrels? That’s what this stuff smells like.

Bonus: After a few weeks of using it, I can definitely tell a difference in the elasticity of the skin under my eyes, and I think the discoloration has slightly faded. I’m definitely going to use up the entire jar before I try a new eye cream.

Do you have a favorite eye cream? Is there one you’ve been wanting to try that I should add to my list? —Aleigh

    Ooh, the resveratrol cream sounds so nice! I live in Temecula, aka Wine Country, so I smell it all the time too (and I love it). I also use 100% Pure’s coffee bean eye cream religiously, and have also seen a decrease in my dark circles. :) Love that company!

    Hey Aleigh,

    Love this post! I use the coffee bean eye cream like the other reader who commented. I LOVE it. I have met many other women who use it religiously as well, and it has really helped them with decreasing puffy eyes. Was thinking about bringing this product into my beauty bar, so I am so pleased to stumble across your review.
    Can’t get enough of your site! This is my favourite natural beauty blog to read!

    Cheers!
