Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Serum review

Aesop Parsley See Anti-Oxidant Serum is probably the most welcomed sample I've received when shopping in I love all kinds of eye creams, treatments and serums so I couldn't be happier than to give it a go.

The first surprise was that this serum is actually a facial oil. It is not defined as such anywhere on the packaging, nor on Galilu's website. 

This oil doesn't feel heavy on the skin, but takes a while to absorb. After that it leaves a kind of tacky residue on my skin, but it gives me a weird feeling that my skin is actually uncomfortably dry. This makes me constantly look in the mirror to see if this doesn't give me wrinkles.
I feel more comfortable when using some eye cream on top, but perhaps this feeling of tightness shows how effective the serum is at smoothing wrinkles. The instructions say nothing about whether this product is meant to be used alone or under an eye cream, but I suppose, since by definition serums enhance the results of creams, it's only the base layer.

This product is extremely efficient. You need only a tiny drop to cover all you eye area, so I suppose the 15ml bottle will last for a year of daily use. This makes the steep price tag more bearable. 

I managed to use this little sample for almost a week. I must say that in spite of all the natural goodness enclosed in the product I didn't  notice any improvement in my skin condition. Perhaps it's too early to say. Yet, I don't feel convinced enough to spend almost $100 on this serum. 

Disclaimer: I received this product as a complimentary sample for my personal use and I'm not affiliated with any company. I am not paid to do this review and everything I said here is my personal opinion.
