Why are so many people oblivious to using an eye cream? I worked for Nordstrom for a year in makeup and skincare. I was the typical "You can just use makeup to cover bad skin" kind of girl not giving any thoughts about skincare. I educated myself in skincare, since I knew I would be selling it and I wanted to be able to answer every question. I tested it out and tried all sorts of regimens. I had people from my previous job see me at work and tell me that I looked so different and that maybe it was my skin?
I realized then and there that skincare made a difference in the way I looked. I had never even used an exfoliant before. I didn't realize how dull and lifeless my skin was. It's amazing what radiant skin can do to a person's appearance.
I would get so many questions about skincare, and if I didn't know, I would find out. I went home at night and studied studied studied and tested tested tested until I knew I could confidently answer every single question. I learned so much about ingredients, chemical compounds, techniques, etc.....
Now, back to eye cream. I had always used just a basic moisturizer once-in-awhile when my face felt dry. I figured I could just use that same moisturizer around my eyes. I researched a lot of eye creams and the Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Corrective Eye Cream kept coming up in the list of best eye creams. I purchased it and love it so much! It is the perfect amount of moisture. Not too much and not too little. It smooths across the delicate skin under the eye so well without pulling the skin. Over a little period of time, I noticed that the lines starting to form around my eyes (I am almost 30) were minimized into almost nothing. I don't use this on my lid, because I have very sensitive eyes.
Less then half a pump covers both of my eyes and the bottle has lasted months and months. I recommended this to my sister who had some pretty serious lines for only being in her mid-thirties, and 7 months later, the lines are minimized into almost nothing just like mine had. You can tell a difference almost immediately, but the long-term effects are what I was after.
This eye cream has won several awards since it has come out, with the 2013 SELF Magazine Healthy Beauty Award for Best Eye Cream being the latest.I just love Shiseido products because they are one of the oldest skincare companies in the world. They started in the late 1800's and have been perfecting skin technologies ever since. It is no wonder they are such a powerhouse in the cosmetics industry; owning NARS, Cle De Peau and Bare Minerals (I learned this in my research). They have also found a new potent age-fighting ingredient called Mukarossi Extract (comes from a nut). Anything with the Camellia flower on the top of the lid has this ingredient (which this eye cream does
Pump cream onto ring finger
With other ring finger, rub the cream in a circular motion to warm it up
With one finger, dab the underneath of one eye from the inside to the outside gently
Repeat with other finger on other eye
Take both fingers and lightly keep dabbing (not rubbing as this can cause more wrinkles) from inside to outside until cream has spread and can absorb
Don't forget the contour of the eye up to the outside corner of your eyebrow
