I have said it before and I will say it again, I hate how the lines around my eyes have just crept up on me over the last few years. I remember a frantic phone call from my old uni flatmate who was asking me to go to immediately to the bathroom and smile in the mirror….. off I went like a performing monkey and duly smiled. “Can you see them?” she asked. “Where have all these lines and nasty crows feet come from? Please tell me you have them too?” she continued. Yes I had them and yes I had noticed them getting worse, but so long as I was going to smile they were going to stay whether I liked it or not.
Over the years I have tried numerous eye creams, eye gels, blah blah blah and although I have noticed better hydration around the eye area, these pesky crows feet have not been ironed out….enough! One thing I really enjoyed using was the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System that I was given for my birthday. Truth be told Mr Fifi Friendly and I were a little hungover when we first tried it at Space NK . It felt a bit strange to start with, but this gadget is fab and unfortunately does not appear to be sold anymore. I felt I saw some difference but I was not keen on the eye serum that came with it. My search for a good eye product that would take years off me continued.
Blending beautifully with the Revitalise & Brighten Eye Dew is the Illuminate & Smooth Puff Reduction Eye Cream. Coming in a jar with its own small black spatula, this cream holds a lovely rich texture and smells deliciously of rose. Contrary to it’s texture it does actually smooth into the skin quickly, using my ring finger to pat it in I applied it around the orbital bone.
The Eye Revitalising Duo is £90. This is more than I would normally want to pay for an eye cream, however you are getting two products here, they are effective and therefore totally justifiable. They work brilliantly by themselves and give the delicate area around your eyes exactly what it needs and when it needs it. Ultimately they are designed to work better as a team. Go forth and get yourself looked after by this dynamic eye duo. Let me know how you get on.
