Rituals Awareness Rich & Firming Eye Cream
There are a few things that interest us about this eye cream right off the bat. Firstly, Rituals is a company that does not just specialize in beauty products. It also manufactures products such as organic cotton, candles and other items for the home. Their motto is something about enriching both the body and soul by having products for both personal health and the betterment of surroundings. The other interesting thing about this product is that it does not claim to do the impossible. No promises of overnight de-aging or magic wrinkle erasing. It claims to be able to nourish the skin, and promote health and youth in the eye area. Fair enough. Let’s see if the ingredients can do the job.

Benefits of Rituals Awareness Rich & Firming Eye Cream
This product contains about 10 emollients. Emollients moisturize and hydrate the skin to varying degrees of effectiveness, but when you have that many in one product, we would say you have your bases covered. This product, as far as we can tell, will be an effective moisturizer, and hydrated skin is younger looking. It is also relatively affordable at $26 for .5 fluid ounces.
Possible Side Effects for Rituals Awareness Rich & Firming Eye Cream
Some of the ingredients have been linked to skin irritation, but should not cause problems for people with normal skin when used as directed.
We would recommend this product for something looking for moisture and hydration. It contains many proven ingredients and comes from a company that seems dedicated to producing quality products.
