Have you ever heard of Odacite? I hadn’t come across the brand until recently when I was given the oppurtunity to try the Odacite Eye Contour Serum Concentrate. Odacite are an amazing brand from the research I’ve done since being introduced and started back in 2004 when Valérie Gradury was diagnosed with breast cancer and felt an urgent need to reinvent her lifestyle and eliminate all toxins from her environment. She decided to quit her job and returned to school as well as developing an intrinsic understanding of the healing properties of plants. Valérie began blending freshly made organic skin care for herself and her clients, and as demand grew, she made her private blends accessible to all.
“Odacité was born in 2009; a collection of pure plant ‘Serum Concentrates’, rich in skin-essential nutrients to correct the multitude of common skin concerns, using concentrated oils that workwith cells to re-establish equilibrium. Rejuvenating, fortifying, protective and vitality-boosting, Odacité enables you to find your perfect formula for faultless skin, and become your own at-home skin alchemist”
The Odacite Eye Contour Serum Concentrate £39 really appealed as I’d never tried a serum specifically for the eye area before and the reviews on Cult Beauty are extremely positive so I couldn’t wait to smear it all over my skin as it’s been particularly dry recently. I knew I was in good hands as Odacite has featured in the Cult Beauty x Caroline Hirons beauty boxes, and the serum’s claims were pretty bold and I liked that it could be used in multiple ways; worn alone, worn under moisturiser or mixed with other products to create a custom concoction.
“Specially formulated to strengthen and nurture the delicate skin around the eyes, Odacité’s Eye Contour Serum Concentrate is brimming with conditioning plant extracts and bio-actives, to replenish precious moisture and diminish visibility of crêpiness and crow’s feet. Starring baobab oil – a rich source of vitamins A, E, F and plant sterols – to combat all of the primary signs of skin ageing, by enhancing elasticity to reduce the appearance of wrinkles – alongside sarsaparilla, palmarosa neroli and lavender oils, which combine to help iron out creases, counteract puffiness and brighten those ‘circles of darkness’.
Just apply directly to damp eye area post cleansing, using your ring finger to press the elixir into skin, patting repeatedly (but gently!) to accelerate absorption and stimulate circulation to leave eyes looking bright, beautiful and more youthful.“
The Odacite Eye Contour Serum Concentrate has an oil-like consistency rather than a serum and is very runny so I tend to apply one drop to the back of my hand and use my fingertips to dab it into the skin until absorbed when using it alone. If my skin need an extra boosy of hydration, I put a little eye cream into my palm and then add one drop of the serum, mix it together and then pat it into the whole eye area upto my brow bones.
Due to how rich it is, I only use it once a day in the evenings as I’m not rushing around and can allow for the serum to absorb fully but I only need the tiniest amount per use as it is so rich. The directions recommend 2-3 drops but I’ve found that to be way too much and my skin is exceptionally dry so although this bottle is quite small, I imagine it’ll last me a seriously long time.
In terms of results, the biggest noticeable improvement is the hydration. The skin is considerably more hydrated since introducing the serum into my routine and a small dry patch I had under my brow bone has disappeared completely. My skin also looks a lot smoother and my hydration lines are a little less noticeable and I think my undereye area looks a little brighter too. I do like using eye creams but I often find they don’t offer enough hydration for my dehydrated skin, but this Odacite Eye Contour Serum Concentrate offers more hydration than any other eye cream I’ve tried.
I would love to know if you’ve tried anything from Odacite before?
