There are so many new products on the beauty horizon for 2016. I enjoy visiting with the beauty advisors regularly at local department stores to get their input on what products are not only peaking curiosity, but also being purchased. Next week Nordstrom will host a Beauty Week and there are many exciting offerings available from the Beauty Representatives.
One of those is Dr. Murad. I have several friends that have used Murad products for years and swear by them. I visited with Sharon, Beauty Advisor for Murad at Nordstrom and she said if I try one product this year it should be the Murad Professional Eye Lift Firming Treatment. So of course, with several samples from her in my beauty bag, that was the first one I wanted to experience. And as you know – I am all about the eyes… specifically mine! (Wink, wink)
This is a professional-strength treatment which actually infuses the delicate eye area with an exclusive, surface-filling and firming serum that instantly lifts, firms, and tightens to visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The use of eye pads helps to boost the penetration of the powerful ingredients for optimal performance and results. Note: This doesn’t replace your eye cream as this is a treatment and only to be used 2-3 times a week, but you do get immediate results which we all love. Right?
After cleansing your face, apply 3 pumps to the under-eye area in a generous layer, but do not rub in. I actually pat, pat, pat the serum around my eye. Next you apply a crescent-shaped pad under each eye and press lightly. After 10-15 minutes, lift off the eye pads and gently pat in any excess product. I noticed a slight tingling sensation which the instructions state is normal. Remember this is not for everyday use.
The use of these eye pads helps to boost the penetration of the ingredients in the serum for results. What you will immediately notice when you remove the pads is that your eyes are smoother and somewhat lifted. I want to say I still use my eye cream following the treatment, because it does not hydrate my under eye area, so the combo is a really ‘eye catching.’
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. – Audrey Hepburn
