Sunday Riley finally came out with another eye cream. And guys. It’s good. I cannot wait to talk you through this one. From the ingredients to the immediate results, I haven’t put this one down since I received it. Introducing the new Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Cream.
It’s your typical Sunday Riley packaging: thoughtful, modern, and luxurious. One thing I can say about all Sunday Riley packaging is that it’s super sturdy and feels very expensive. This one has all neutrals so it photographs really well and is perfect to place on an open shelf. It also uses a pump, which is nice and convenient.
One of my favorite ingredients on the list is caffeine. I love it for obvious reasons, but my skin also responds really well to caffeine. Other ingredients include Ginseng Root Extract, Horse Chestnut extract, and Acmella Oleracea Extract. All of these ingredients help the eye area to appear more awake, youthful, and less puffy.
First, I’d like to point out that I feel many companies get it wrong when it comes to the amount you need to use. After I read the packaging which said 2-3 pumps, I immediately knew I’d never use that amount unless I wanted it to cover my entire face. I would only recommend using one FULL pump for both eyes. It’s really all you need, and you’ll save yourself some money.
The testing period was pretty short for this product since it doesn’t claim any long term results that I know of. I tested this for a week and was blown away every time I used it. The first time I used it, I couldn’t believe my eyes (see what I did there?). They literally transformed right in front of me.
My eyes were looking all puffy and dull from the early morning I had, and I applied a single pump that I split between both eyes. Instantly my under eyes were brighter, smoother, and less puffy. I didn’t read any reviews beforehand on this product, as I wanted an absolute unbiased experience. And boy did this deliver the wow factor.
I will note that this product does appear to have some sort of sheen added. I swatched it on the back of my hand and it gave a highlighting effect, almost like a cream you’d use to highlight your cheekbones. While this effect didn’t bother me at all and only amplified my experience and the results, I know others might not be keen on the sheen (I’m on a roll today).
I also tested this product under makeup and it delivered in that area as well. I find that a lot of eye products are too tacky and they sit horribly under concealer and setting powder. In fact, I had just about given up on using an eye cream in my morning routine, until I tested this one. Thank you Sunday Riley!
This eye cream is a little pricey, but honestly, what eye cream isn’t these days? For instant results, I think it’s absolutely worth it, and it definitely delivers on all its promises. This currently retails for $65 at Sephora. If you’re looking for a dupe, this reminded me a lot of the Origins GinZing eye cream which is only $30. Yes, I just used the word ‘only’ to describe a $30 product that’s 0.5 ounces. #skincareprobs
Would I Purchase Again?
I would 100% purchase this. I received this product as PR from Sunday Riley, and have been literally blown away by the instant results. I’m quite picky with my eye creams, and I honestly was not expecting to like this as much as I did. I think a little part of me didn’t even want to like it as much as I did, given my recent hate-fueled vow to end my morning eye cream routine.
The Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Cream will definitely be on my shelf for a while. It’s so hard to find a good eye cream, and I am so happy with the performance of this. I cannot wait to get this on my face every morning – one of the signs that it’s indeed a keeper…
