Eye creams have been a part of my skincare regimen since I turned 24-years-old - it's been five years now and I have no regrets. *Shrugs shoulders* there's nothing wrong with preventative maintenance. To all of the eye creams I've loved before, well, I still love you; I just like to rotate and keep my options open. Origin's GinZing is by far and away my favourite eye cream, but I'm still holding out on buying it again until I've tried Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye. In the meantime, You Won't Believe Your Eyes has been added into my current rotation of lotions and potions.
Here's a snippet about the ingredients in the product:
"You Won’t Believe Your Eyes mobilizes Live Yeast Cell Derivative (LYCD), an ingredient in that fashion model handbag standby – hemmorhoid cream – to help increase cell respiration and metabolism while combating inflammation to attack under-eye bags and bloat. Also formulated with instant lifting agents, a special blend of illuminating pigments and cooling cucumber juice, just ROLL IT ON and watch the transformation take place." - Soap & Glory
My approach ultimately came down to doing it wrong. I applied You Won't Believe Your Eyes on my under eye area after applying makeup - hey, the label said I could! The lotion was cooling and light, but it disturbed my under eye concealer, making it appear translucent. As Willy Wonka said: "So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it." And reverse it I shall.
Final observations & thoughts:
- The smell is light, a tad fruity with a hint of I don't know.
- The lotion smoothes out easily, while leaving behind purple-y/blue light reflecting particles.
- Apply first, allow to dry and then apply under eye concealer if you wish. Lesson learned.
