Pros of both the eye creams
- Both are clinically tested independently (meaning, in their controlled clinical trial laboratory) .
- Neither of them contains bad ingredients like parabens, petroleum, pthalates, gluten, or synthetic fragrances.
- Neither of them is tested on animals.
- Both have been proved to have shown improvement within two weeks. The doTerra seems to show result from the day one itself but significant benefits are seen in 10 to 14 days.
After researching for a while, I found that both the creams seem to comply with the safety standards for use of ingredients in cosmetics. Both the creams are a little expensive when compared to the average rates of all eye creams available but are worth the price considering the quality.
Both offers same quantity for the same amount. After thoroughly reading the reviews from other customers and from my own experience I believe both the creams are superior compared to many others I know of in the market. Though I ideally would choose doTerra products but Elemis seems to do a little better in terms of its ingredients when compared to those of doTerra eye cream.
Very rarely customers have complained of redness and bumpy appearance in the under eye area with the use of these eye creams. Although the ingredients seem to be safe, it is advised to be careful if you feel any signs of damage to your skin and contact a dermatologist immediately.
