- Not cleansing off makeup properly before going to bed
- Pay little attention to hydration
- Not applying sunscreen
- Skipping on eye care
Do you use an eye treatment? What's your current favorite?
Allow me to whine about my eye area after the jump and then I'll tell you if the Ciracle Eye Contour Gel is of any help.
First of all, let me emphasize the importance of eye care...
The skin around the eye area is very much thinner than the rest of the face (except lips) and yet it's one of those areas that get stretched out a lot. Be it from laughing a lot, applying eye makeup, removing said eye makeup, wearing contact lenses, etc.
And the eyes also get strained a lot from staring into the computer screen several hours a day.
If signs of tiredness and fine lines were to show up, they'd be most obvious around the eye area.
Unfortunately for me, without the help of concealer, I'd look like I need a sleep coma *sighs*. Worse still, most eye treatments do squat for me. Well, except for ridiculously expensive ones.
Suffice to say, I've sorta stopped shopping around for eye treatments since I'm rather pessimistic towards their effectiveness. My expectations towards the Ciracle Eye Contour Gel was pretty much neutral.
Did it help with the dark circles and puffiness? Ummm....
What I can tell you is that the gel feels like a serum and absorbs readily with just a few taps. Upon application, the skin around my eye area would look smoother and the fine lines less apparent.
To say that Ciracle works would be difficult but I like the texture and how it makes my skin feels enough that I'm inclined to using it daily. I'd also tap the excess on other creased areas such as the smile lines and forehead.
The Ciracle Eye Contour Gel is available from WishTrend for USD22.99
I'm still on the lookout for an eye treatment that can solve my dark circles woes without costing a significant fraction of my salary!
Being told that I "look tired" when I have no concealer on is starting to get annoying...
