OK. So Glossybox have included yet another Avant Skincare product. To be perfectly honest, I really don’t know how I feel about this. The RRPs of these products are really high. The packaging is basic and the formulas are nothing special. For me, I feel that these must be filler products because we get them so often. It’s rare to receive other high end skincare brands with prices like this. Are they there to inflate the RRP of the boxes and this calendar? I wonder who would pay full price? And now that Glossybox have released their own skincare range, why would they include rival products? (I’m still using the Glossybox own brand eyecream I received in a Glossybox a few months ago. Watch the video!) Anyway, I’ve said most of this before in my post about subscription boxes, I think I may have a problem… including my thoughts around the idea that you rarely need to buy skincare again, because subscription boxes keep you topped up!

Avant Skincare website description: Our 3-1 Hyaluron-Filler Collagen Eye Formula is part of the Avant Age Restore range. This revolutionary formula contains signature ingredients to even out the signs of ageing while maintaining a mattified complexion.
The science: Hyaluronic Acid aims to penetrate deep into the skin to hydrate and instantly helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen works as an important building block for elasticity and helps smooth the signs of ageing.
- Aims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Works to deeply hydrate
- Helps remove dark circles and eye bags
- Contributes to smoothing and softening the skin
Apply in the morning and evening onto clean, dry skin around the eye area.
Discontinue use if redness or irritation occurs. Avoid direct contact with the eyes. Do not ingest.
Period after opening: 6 months
First Impressions: The packaging is the basic, plastic tube. The formula is gel-like and after testing it on the back of my hand, it absorbs well. It doesn’t have a particular fragrance and after it soaked in, it had a tightening effect, which I guess would help to keep the undereye area taught and help reduce wrinkles. I thought I felt a tingling sensation, but it subsided quickly. I will utilise this product once I finish the Glossybox eyecream and report back to you.
