The Eye Life

Wednesday 2nd August 2017

I'm always on the look out for eye creams on the market...that actually work! Although it would be cheaper to wear a new pair of this seasons Prada sunglasses everyday rather than keep trying out the latest technology in peptides and retinol. "What do you want from your eye cream?” the teenage beauty counter lady says to me with her Amy Winehouse liner flicks. "One that actually works" I reply positively. The females in my family all have very thin skin around their eyes and maybe its all the laughter and fun that we have - after all they say lines are the lines of the soul but I would be lying if i said i didn’t want to knock between 2 and 10 years off my eyes…so how? Ok.. well over the last few months I’ve been testing out these five eye creams and heres the results of the eye creams I used:

1. REN Firm and Lift Eye cream Brilliant for sensitive eyes like mine. Feels luxurious without the need for chemicals or nasties. 5/5

2. Cowshed Jasmine Toning Eye Balm - this eye cream/balm doesn’t have any amazing technology but its simple and light and can be placed over make up if needed. 3/5

3. Rodial Snakes Venom o2 - Light and super refreshing. You can use this morning and night, but be warned its very expensive 4/5

4. Cream De La Mer Eye Balm - I like using this one at might but its too heavy for the day (for me) however it simply oozes luxury. 3/5

5. Kiehls Powerful wrinkle reducing Eye Cream - Simple. Easy to use and great for your portable make up bag but I think its bark is bigger than its bite! It doesnt feel like it has the latest technology it simply feels hydrating. 4/5
