Looking after my eye area is the single most troublesome thing in my skincare regimen and I have hormonal acne, so you can imagine what I think of my eyes! I’ve been “blessed” with really deep, dark and puffy circles under my eyes. It’s a genetic thing and there’s not much I can do to make them go away completely. I’ve used every eye cream & makeup combo under the sun, found some decent options over time but my latest discovery is a game changer!
I’ve been introduced to the REN Beauty Shot Eye Lift at the product launch. I’m always a little underwhelmed by eye creams as they just seem to do so little that is instantly visible and was so impressed to find that this one was really different.
The Beauty Shot Eye Lift* is a light gel-type serum that promises to instantly lift and brighten the eye area. And for the first time in ages I actually completely agree with the marketing spiel! On application I can feel the skin around the eye area tightening straight away and somehow my usually considerable eye bags are de-puffed and definitely less purple. The serum has a very slight pearl shot through it which helps to bounce the light of the skin and brighten the entire area. It’s also doing a great job on hydrating the skin around my eyes and taking care of those pesky crows feet that are caused by dehydration.
The great thing about this little serum is that you can apply it over makeup as well as under it so if you get a bit tired looking around the eyes while in the office this is your man!
The only thing to bare in mind when applying the product is that less is more and dabbing is better than rubbing! The serum can be applied over the eye lids as well but I found that some cream products can react with it and start ever so slightly peeling or balling up but I’m pretty sure that’s due to me over-applying the serum. I’ve had absolutely no trouble with it under or over my concealer or foundation.
I’ve rarely been this impressed by the effects of a beauty product and cannot recommend it enough! It’s hands down the best eye serum I have used so far and I will be re-purchasing when this one runs out for sure!
REN Beauty Shot Eye Lift is available from Cloud 10 Beauty and Space NK and is €40 for 15ml. It’s not a budget product but absolutely worth every penny! It also seems that it will last for absolute ages as I only use a pump about the size of a grain of rice.
