Do you know that I’ve never been a huge fan of eye creams? Yup. It’s true. I try them all the time. Test them out. Review them. But never keep on using them after. Why? I’ve never really noticed a huge difference when using one. None of them really did anything for any lines or wrinkles that I’ve got. They’d still be there no matter what. And sure they’ve moisturized, but honestly I’d get the same moisturizing effect by just bringing up my face cream under my eyes. So, why keep on using them? Or buying them and wasting my money?
Well, I’ve been testing a new eye balm from Avene since January-that’s two whole months folks. And you know what?
I CAN SEE A DIFFERENCE.
Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm
Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm is designed for us…mature ladies…but I say PFFT to that…everyone needs to use this eye balm! Oh, and it’s paraben free too! And NO fragrance!
Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm has four key active ingredients to address the four main issues for aging eyes.
1. Redensifying and anti-sagging action: It contains Hyaluronic Acid Fragments (H.A.F.) to boost the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid synthesis to add volume and firmness.
2. A cosmetic “lifting” effect: The combination of a natural, firming polymer and a “soft focus” filling agent in Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm lifts the lids and widens the eyes.
3. Refreshing action: Dextran sulfate reduces puffiness and signs of fatigue thanks to its decongesting properties.
4. Smoothing, protective and nourishing action: Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm contains Glycoleol which is nourishing and lipid-restoring. And there’s Pre-Tocopheryl, a powerful cellular antioxidant that helps create vitamin E reserves. Both of those ingredients intensively hydrates.
The texture of Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm is something else! It’s beautiful and smooth, yet rich and not greasy at all. As soon as I put it on in the morning, my eyes look brighter, wider, more awake. And it sinks in quickly too and works well under any makeup. But, since I’ve been using Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm, I’ve noticed that I need LESS concealer under my eyes. YUP. LESS. Which is perfect, because as we get older, heavy concealer under the eyes is kind of a big NO. I sometimes even SKIP concealer now and find that my foundation does a good enough job under my eyes. My under eye area looks so much brighter and even! And I’m noticing that some of the fine lines are looking better too!
Who knew a really good eye cream could make such a difference? 😛
Avene Serenage Revitalizing Eye Balm is supposed to be on shelves this month. Look for it wherever Avene is sold and GET IT. You’ll thank me!
Are you a regular eye cream user? Do you notice a difference when using it?
