Can ARK Skincare Reverse Gravity Eye Cream Really Help Your Eye Area Fight Gravity?

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

With a name like that, you expect it to reverse gravity and lift your skin. Plus, all the things an eye cream is supposed to do anyway. Like reducing dark circles. Getting rid of puffy eyes. Moisturise skin. The basics.

Isn’t that too much of a tall job? Maybe…

But it certainly looks up to it. I mean… it comes complete with a rollerball and all… But does it deliver? I’ve put it to the test to find out:

What’s In ARK Skincare Reverse Gravity Eye Cream?

GLYCERIN

Glycerin is in pretty much all your skincare products. For a reason.

It’s a humectant. It simply means it can attract water from the environment into your skin and bind it there. Why?

GRAPE SEED OIL

Derived from the seeds of grapes, grape seed oil has a lightweight texture that feels less greasy compared to other oils, like coconut and castor.

What does it do? For starters, like all oils, it’s very moisturising: it creates a protective barrier on the skin that slows down water loss.

Plus, this oil is loaded with polyphenols, a group of antioxidants with anti- inflammatory properties that fight both free radicals and inflammation (the two main causes of premature aginng).

ALLANTOIN

Allantoin is a skin-soother on steroids. Studies show it can:

  • Soothe irritations: It has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce redness and itching.
  • Moisturise skin: It helps skin retain moisture, keeping it supple and hydrated for longer.
  • Heal wounds: It helps boosts the growth of new, healthy tissue, so that wounds heal faster.

How To Use It

After cleansing. With your ring finger, apply a tiny amount to your undereye area. Then, using the cooling metallic ball, massage it in.

Performance & Personal Opinion

I really love the design of ARK Skincare Reverse Gravity Eye Cream. It’s basically a wand with a rollerball-tip. How cool is that? Makes me feel like I’m in a sci-fi movie every time I use it.

The cooling effect of the tip is what helps you reduce puffy eyes. As long as you keep this baby in the fridge. I initially stored it in my bathroom cabinet and the tip felt quite warm on my skin. Pleasant in winter, but not what my eye area needs…

The cream does a good job at hydrating skin. And when skin is hydrated, it looks better. Hydration plumps up fine lines, so they look smaller. It makes skin softer to the touch. And it gives the complexion that slight dewy look.

That’s pretty much it. I didn’t notice any instant tightening effect or any reduction in my dark circles (truth bomb: eye creams CAN’T treat dark circles).

Sure, on days I used this cream, I looked less tired and fatigued. But that’s the power of hydration (and the cooling tip).

Who Is This For?

Recommended
No.111 - Purge Impurities

People who need a separate eye cream because their eye area is drier than the rest of their face.

Packaging

Sleek white tube with a small pump applicator and metal rollerball. The pump applicator pours out just the little amount you need, while the rollerball massages it in.

It looks really cool, but the rollerball doesn’t do much of anything. It’s not even cooling (unless you keep it in the fridge).

Price & Availability

£48.00 at Feel Unique, Look Fantastic, and Wolf & Badger

No eye cream is a must and this is no exception. But if your eye area is drier than the rest of the face, and you need a more hydrating eye cream for it, this is a good option for consider.
