Super Bowl Sunday is on the horizon and like many of you, I will have a room filled with friends, family and food. And, during the game I will hear several Monday Morning Quarterbacks saying “I think, I want, or I believe”… lots of “eyes” in there huh?
I am so into eyes these days. I have been testing several different eye serums over the last month and I must say, there are two that work well for my eyes, but then again the other three are all fabulous too.
Everyone has an idea of what they want to see in their eye serums. Some need the hydration, while others want the firming and others want brightening and to get rid of those dark circles and bags. Here are several serums I have used and my comments regarding on each one. All were applied in the morning and at night and the application was done by patting the serum all around the eye.
La Prairie Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex. This instant firming eye gel is lightweight, firms, nourishes and improves tone and texture. The delicate skin around our eyes is hydrated and brightened as signs of stress and fatigue fade away and imperfections are erased. Works well for me. Medium price points.
Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum brings dull and tired-looking eyes to life by brightening, firming, and restoring delicate skin. This is a lightweight, non-greasy formula which absorbs easily into the skin to deliver stunning results. It promotes collagen production to boost elasticity and prepares skin to make the most of additional skincare steps. This is one I will never be without! Again, medium price points.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum eye treatment firms, brightens, and fights the appearance of wrinkles and is gentle enough for use on the eyelids. This serum targets three aging complaints: wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles and will diminish the look of creepiness in the eyelid. This one keeps my eyelids so smooth and I use it though out the day to refresh my look. Very good price points.
Bioline PHYTO STAMINAL + Caviar & Retinol Beauty Enhancer Concentrate Serum is a little different from most of the other eye serums. It can be used on fragile and delicate areas such as the eye and lip contour and the neck. After it’s applied, it favors the relaxation of the sections as it improves firmness and elasticity of the skin, emphasizing the natural beauty around the eyes and lips. I love this one! Medium price points.
Now my good friend and shopping buddy, Karen, is currently using Vital C Hydrating Anti-aging Serum/Hydrating Serum by Image Skincare. She says ‘it hydrates my skin, and it feels dewy all day, which I like. My skin seems to be radiant, and the tone looks more even. I feel like I’m putting vitamins on my skin and I actually think I can go without makeup when I use it and I have a healthy glow.’ Good price points.
With so many product choices for our eyes the best way to see what works best for you is to just try a few. Ask a beauty advisor for some samples and then use one and only one for a few days each. I will say that I usually use two because I see the effect I am looking for with the combination. Plus! As I mentioned, I refresh with another one mid day because that works best for me!
