I probably have to start of by saying that I don’t really own many/if any anti-aging creams at my age yet! I know some people start using these kind of creams at quite a young age, but hey I am only 26….do I really need start worrying about wrinkles and lines already? However what really interested me in trying this product was its brightening effects because I do hate dark circles and puffy eyes…(I am a true concealer addict!) What I really liked was that the cream is nice and thick, it’s 84% natural and is created not only to stop the signs of aging as such but can also help de-puff, hydrate and nourish the delicate area around our eyes! The one that you notice immediately is the fresh scent, the weightlessness of the product and you feel it tighten around the eye and brighten it up! It doesn’t eliminate the need to use concealer (not for me anyway) but I did feel my eyes felt lighter and less dark after applying the product. As an eye cream, I think it’s great! The one downpoint to this product I’d say would be the cost, because at £49 a pop it definitely isn’t cheap. However, Caudalie has won many awards for it’s anti aging products and therefore maybe once my wrinkles get worse I will really start seeing the value for money to invest in anti aging eye cream ;)
Then again should I use anti aging products to prevent wrinkles & lines? Hmm food for thought….
Do any of you of you use anti-wrinkle products and if so what are your thoughts? Would love to know :)
