I was excited to try the new Summer Fridays Light Aura Eye Cream because it has light reflecting properties that make it a perfect primer for makeup. I love products with an instant effect. Here’s how I got on.

I have only had this new eye cream for a week or so, and as such have not done a proper test. However, I have a good feel of how it performs, and if you like something illuminating, it could be for you.
The packaging is lovely, as you would expect from Summer Fridays and the product itself looks very inviting inside the glass jar.
The texture of the eye cream is lovely. It is light in feel, but really does have a lovely hydrating and moisturising effect. I dabbed a small amount around the orbital bone and blended it in.
It sinks into the skin really nicely, and doesn’t ball up or pill under makeup. Concealer goes on really nicely over this light texture.
It gives an immediate subtle radiance to the eye area which really helps to brighten up the whole look of the complexion. You can also gently tap it on after makeup during the day if you want a boost in hydration and radiance under the eyes.
On close inspection, you can see what I can only describe as a very fine shimmer, which are the light reflecting particles. It also gives a very subtle peachy tint to the skin which helps to colour correct any darkness.
Is Summer Fridays Light Aura Eye Cream suitable for sensitive eyes?
As I said, I haven’t been able to test it for long enough to be able to comment on its long-term effects of the Summer Fridays Light Aura Eye Cream, but I think it’s a lovely product that feels really gentle on the skin. The formula hasn’t made my eyes water at all, and I don’t notice any obvious fragrance. It is free from synthetic dyes and sulphates, so it should be suitable for sensitive eyes.
