beauty scoop | blissoma solutions bright eye vitalizing nutrient serum

I have a few go-to eye creams and serums, but one thing that I’ve longed for is an eye treatment that could easily be used both morning and night.

While I already have one on my go-to list that fits the bill, Blissoma Solutions’ new Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum has earned a spot in this list as well.

Blissoma Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum

{Blissoma sent me a sample of its Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum. It costs $45.99 for a 0.5-ounce glass pump jar.}

Blissoma Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum

Made with 19 active ingredients, Blissoma Solutions Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum is a non-sticky, non-oily lightweight, almost-watery serum that absorbs quickly and leaves no strange coloring on the skin (something I was concerned about when I first pumped the copper-colored product onto my hand).

It doesn’t really have a scent that I can detect, which is great for those of us who are scent-sensitive or just don’t need the frills of too many essential oils (especially around the eye area!).

Always one to outdo herself, Blissoma founder Julie Longyear sourced an exotic combination of high-performance ingredients for her new eye serum.

You’ll see a few oldies but goodies like aloe juice, rosehip oil and argan oil in the mix, but infusions of yerba mate, rose root, gotu kola, comfrey, eyebright and more provide anti-aging benefits thanks to a jolt of vitamin C, ferulic acid and other skin-protecting antioxidants that the delicate eye area desperately needs.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Infusion of Ilex paraguariensis* (yerba mate), Rhodiola rosea*, Centella asiatica* (gotu kola), Symphytum officinale* (comfrey), Euphrasia officinalis* (eyebright), Matricaria recutita* (chamomile), Ruscus aculeatus* (butcher’s broom), Astralagus membranaceus*, Olea europaea* (olive leaf), and Sambucus nigra* (elder flower), Aloe barbadensis Juice*, Rubus ideaus (red raspberry) Seed Oil*, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Cetearyl Alcohol and Cetearyl Glucoside, Argania spinosa (argan) Oil*, Populus Tremuloides (Aspen) Bark Extract, Proanthocyanidins, Punica granatum (pomegranate) Seed Oil*, Rosa rubiginosa (rosehip) Oil*, Hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn berry) CO2 Extract*, Gluconolactone, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Cetearyl Wheatstraw Glycosides, Xanthan Gum (*from Certified Organic Agriculture)

With so many amazing ingredients packed into one product, what’s even more exciting about Blissoma Solutions Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum is that you can truly get away with half a pump to cover both eyes.

Blissoma says that each pump jar of treatment contains enough for approximately a two-month or so supply when used once daily. If you use just half a pump (seriously, you don’t need that much), well, you do the math.

After using Blissoma Solutions Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum daily for a few weeks, I noticed that the skin around my eyes appeared brighter (without the help of shimmering mica) and the perpetual puffiness I feel was a little less obvious.

(More sleep would help me in that department, I know.)

The best thing about Blissoma Solutions Bright Eye Vitalizing Nutrient Serum, though, from an oily-skinned girl’s perspective, is that it doesn’t feel overly rich / thick / creamy / clogging.

That’s huge for those of us prone to milia, and it’s especially wonderful to have an eye treatment like this as we go into warmer weather and can’t handle too much product on our skin.

Dry-skinned ladies, I’m not sure how this will fare for you.You may opt for the full pump to get that extra shot of non-oily moisture. Blissoma formulated this eye serum with mature skin in mind, so I can’t imagine it not delivering.

So, back to the bottom line. Would I repurchase this?

Yeap! I think it’s an interesting formula, and I really like the lightweight feel and impressive ingredients list. The pricing is fair, and I think this will be a staple eye serum for day and night during a muggy Kansas City spring / summer.

Have any dry-skinned gals tried Blissoma’s new eye serum? What do you look for in a good warm-weather eye treatment? Do you use the same eye product for both day and night? Tell me in the comments section!

    Your review captures Blissoma’s serum perfectly! You’re not imagining the reduced puffiness. It works like that for me too, plus overall brighter appearance and diminished lines. I love the way it absorbs so well so that it’s great for under makeup or before going to sleep. It’s front and center in my arsenal! Great review, as usual :-)

      Thanks, Sarita! Julie’s line is very special. She is one smart cookie and always has such thoughtful ingredients! And at an affordable price :) I really love this serum … sometimes serums are too oily or sticky and are a nighttime-only treat. I’m glad it’s working well for you! xoxo

    Wow, will definitely be looking out for this. The ingredients sound amazing and that’s a great result to get after a few weeks :) X

    My skin is dry and I have this eye serum. I really like it also! I usually use it in the mornings and then use a richer eye cream at night so that I get enough moisturize.

      That’s great to know, lady! I always wonder about what my dry-skinned gals think about the products I love. It’s great to have something that is universal! xoxo

    Thank you Kim! I’m so happy you’re pleased with the serum! :) We had been getting asked for an eye product ever since we launched and I was excited to craft something that I felt was a unique offering for our brand. Looking forward to continuing to care for your peepers into the future!

      You are very welcome, Julie! Congrats on this launch. You nailed it! I admire your line and your work, and it’s always fun to cheer on a fellow Jayhawk :) Can’t wait to see what else you cook up soon! xoxo

    I am seriously looking for a new eye serum/cream! I used the One Love Organics eye balm during the winter. But as it’s getting warming I’m finding it a bit to moisturizing. I like the sound of this one though!

      Agree! I don’t use my OLO one now that it’s muggy … a bit too rich. Let me know if you give this one a whirl! I am loving it.
