Drunk Elephant | C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream: Review
As you may know, I've been slowly making my way through the Drunk Elephant product range and I'm happy to report that I've finally started using the brand's new and only eye cream called the C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream ($78 CAD for 15ml). Free of silicones, drying alcohols, fragrances, and all the other nasties you wouldn't want to find in your skincare, C-Tango is formulated with an impressive roster of vitamin Cs, peptides, botanical extracts, and plant oils to restore, nourish, and brighten the eye area.

Packaging:
The C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream comes in an adorable white and orange plastic bottle similar to that of the Drunk Elephant serums (see here). The eye cream is actually housed in a 15ml, airless pump bottle hidden inside the opaque outer container. To use, twist the orange cap and the pump will pop right up. Then, simply press to dispense. Because the packaging is not see through, it's pretty much impossible to gauge just how much product is left inside. However, I've recently popped open both my T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Serum and C-Firma Serum and much to my delight, very little product is left over. Therefore, the economical airless pump design ensures that you are getting your money's worth.

Formulation:
With a fairly viscous but easily spreadable texture, the C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream is formulated with five different forms of vitamin C that improve skin texture and tone. The eye cream also contains vitamin E, an eight-peptide blend, cucumber extract, and an antioxidant called ubiquinone, all of which work together to reduce signs of wrinkles and strengthen the skin. Additionally, nourishing oils of marula, avocado, and sacha peanut are added to provide and lock in moisture.
Despite having a fairly thick texture, the eye cream is lightweight and non-greasy. Immediately after application, the eye area feels hydrated and soothed. I don't have too many wrinkles just yet so I can't speak to how anti-aging it is but the formulation certainly feels nourishing enough for year-round use. I've been mixing the C-Tango with the Shaba Complex Eye Serum as per Drunk Elephant's recommendation and I've been absolutely loving the combination. As I've mentioned in the previous review, the serum itself is a bit too runny and thin but when mixed with the thicker C-Tango, they form the perfect consistency that leaves my eye area hydrated long after washing my face in the morning.

Overall I think this is a very nice eye cream. The ingredients used are undoubtly impressive (see the full list on Sephora) and the lightweight, creamy consistency is just right for my combination skin. I found the formulation to be very nourishing and hydrating but it's hard for me to personally attest to the brightening or wrinkle-reducing effects. It's definitely a great eye cream but based on results alone (quality ingredients aside), I'm not sure if it really stands out among other great eye creams (ex. Clarins Hydra Essentiel Eye Mask) I've tried over the years. If you are already a Drunk Elephant fan, then I recommend giving this a go. However, if you are new to the brand, I suggest starting with my personal favorites, Lala Retro Whipped Cream and T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, before doing the full dive.
