Angela Langford // Angel Eyes Nourishing Eye Oil

This beautiful piece of eye rejuvenating wonderfullness was gifted to me by Angela Langford herself. We had a quick discussion about my eye needs and that I had been on the look out for a product with a roller ball applicator. I was looking for something that would hydrate and help to reduce my dark circles.

Angela suggested her Angel Eyes nourishing Eye Oil, and I am so glad that she did!

This has worked wonders for my dark under eye circles, they are not completely gone but I have noticed that they have reduced in their purple tone. It feels extremely refreshing to use due to the cucumber oil it's nourishing formula which also contains rosehip oil and argan oil. The oils texture is really light and settles really well into my skin. It has not caused any inflammation or puffiness. I do like to occasionally put on a cream textured eye treatment over the top of the oil when my under eyes are feeling particaularily dry. As we get into spring, I have not had to this as much and I think this is just down to preference.

I love applying this day and night, the roller ball action when applying makes it quick, fun and easy, it's also a plus that you don't have to put your fingers in the oil to apply it! The scent is so light and fresh with a hint of cucumber that is not over powering and fades a while after application.

The oil sinks into the under eye area quickly and I have found it to be a good base for my concealer, keeping it looking fresh throughout the day. For £19.50 you get 10mls of oil, I have been using this day and night since December last year and I have just reached the half way point. I will be repurchasing this as soon as I near running out it. In my opinion it is too good to be with out it.

Has this product given me angel eyes? I don't know about that, but it is certainly heavenly to use! (sorry, I couldn't help it!)

Here is what they say:

"Suitable for all but the most sensitive of skins, this is your recipe to treat the delicate skin around your beautiful eyes."

Cooling cucumber is carefully blended with argan & rosehip to create a specialist eye oil that repairs & smooths the delicate skin around your eyes.
Gently massage the roller ball around your eye area once or twice to dispense the right amount of oil.
You can use this in the morning & again at night.
Do not use this product if you feel you may be allergic to any of the ingredients. Store this oil out of direct light & in a cool place to prolong its shelf life.

Cucumber is rich in omega 6 essential fatty acids (linoleum acid), oleic acid, palmitic acid, minerals (including potassium & silica), tocopherols & phytosterols. It can help stimulate cell regeneration & retains moisture in the skin. It is also a well-known remedy to help reduce dark under eye circles & skin pigmentations - it softens & hydrates the skin & is ideal for dry, sensitive & mature skin types.
Argan is nourishing & can help strengthen skin’s elasticity. Rosehip is an amazingly versatile oil – healing, calming, skin strengthening & mild & gentle. Safflower (also known as thistle) contains really high levels of skin loving omega 6 & it is very nourishing & quickly & easily absorbed into the skin.

  1. My Angela love is Perfect Pores - a serum, but nourishing enough to be used as a stand-alone moisturiser I find. Leaves my skin feeling super soft and smooth!
