MsChikee's Next Top Eye Cream

28 July 2009

My quest for a new eye cream has reached a new level, I am making it happen. Age has definitely contributed to this search because my Clinique All about eyes is not performing as it used to (or so i think).

Changing your skin care products that you're used to is very tricky thing to do because you will have to get out of your comfort zone and try new things and do the process of elimination (again). Personally, I think that it's a good thing because your skin changes and you will want to keep up with it and probably delay any "ageing" as much as you can.

What pushed me to committing to this search was a comment from the MA at the Bobbi Brown counter - she emphasised that my under eye is very dry hence the concealer and corrector didn't sit in properly.

I used that comment as a my criteria for judging - the eye cream must be hydrating.

The MA also noticed fine lines - so second criteria - the eye cream must minimise the presence of fine lines.

My current eye cream promises both but for some strange reason I don't get those results.

The first 2 products that I am currently trying are Kiehl's Abyssine Eye Cream and This Works Tired Eye Serum (both are available at Mecca Cosmetica.)

Kiehl's Abyssine Eye Cream - defends skin from free radical damages and minimise the appearance of fine lines.

I Googled eye cream and I found this. Then I searched on MakeupAlley and read some good reviews.

This Works Tired Eyes Serum - It helps to reduce puffiness and swelling around the eye area and has a cooling, soothing effect.

This was suggested by the MA at MeccaCosmetica. She said that it's lighter in texture than Kiehl's and easily absorbed by the skin.

I got samples of both and I can't wait to try them.

TIP: Always ask for samples before committing to buying the product especially if it's a new product you're trying.

What eye cream do you use?
