I'm lucky at my tender years to have very few lines round my eyes, and knowing my luck (after the faux tan malarkey) I'd be the one customer who ended up with deep crevasses and swollen eyes after using it. 😳
I actually use a hyaloronic acid serum under my eyes, and on my face at night, and that's worked a treat at 1/10th of the cost of that Elemis goo.
It's PurOrganica hyaluronic acid serum, from Amazon. It's £13.95 for a 60ml bottle.
I first took a gamble over a year ago and haven't looked back. I use it neat and also mix it with moisturiser or retinol cream (for a mega blast) and, although I say it myself, my skin has benefited and looks better. The company also does an eye cream but I've never bought that so can't vouch for the effects on the skin.
I've had quite a few bottles from them and they often email me a discount voucher as a "valued customer." It might not suit everyone, but it's certainly suited me.
And something must be working because a couple of months ago, the guy fitting my kitchen thought I was 51 and a couple of days ago another bloke thought I was mid to late 40s. 😳 (Not bad for someone who is 67!) (Or guys are rubbish at guessing ages )
We went out for lunch on Saturday and seeing as it was such a beautiful day we decided to walk into the centre of Cardiff for a bit of a nose. (Himself stayed rooted to the pub bench with his pint). On the way the Rugrats were on their phones arranging eyebrow waxing slots in Boots. "Now go & see if you can find a young girl on a beauty counter who needs mothering," they said. I hadn't got far when a Benefit Cosmetics girl barred my way and before you could say "Knife" I was up on a high stool having primer and foundation slapped on my mouche -'Hello Flawless' in Champagne if you're interested. A bit later there was a patter of tiny feet & I was abandoned as the Rugrats took my place. Pushed off my stool I was. 34 was going out that night so got the full works, 28 concentrated on lippy. Somehow we walked away with £45 worth of goods -on my card! The free tote bag I was given was nice mind.
On to Debenham's and I nabbed again by the Yves Saint Laurent lady. I was far too pale apparently & I'm really 'Cool Sand' Who knew! This time 28 got the full works and we were all colour matched and got free samples of foundation.
By now Himself was crying on the phone to 28. "Haven't you had enough yet!?" "Be there in just a minute." On to TK Maxx ...
