The Product: Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel, $38
Why: I’ve never been one to obsess over an eye cream. To be honest, if you’re using a fabulous moisturizer that’s loaded with anti-aging and line smoothing ingredients, you don’t really need to use eye cream. But lately, I’ve been swiping on the Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel just because it looked like something that might feel amazing to slather on. Doesn’t every love affair with a product start this way?
I wasn’t necessarily expecting for this to be a magic eraser for crow’s feet or anything. I just thought I’d give it a go to see if it would make any sort of difference. Maybe my skin care routine would have room in it for an eye cream? It surly wouldn’t hurt to try it. It’s packed with ingredients like peptides, Arginine, Calendula extract and Cucumber extract after all.
After I used the blue tinted gel for a couple of weeks, I can’t say that the skin around my eyes looked any different. To be honest, I wasn’t really paying attention to that. But, I simply couldn’t stop using it. It just felt good to spend the extra 20 seconds to glide this along my eye area. Because it’s a gel, it offers a nice, yet totally subtle, cooling sensation. It’s almost like a glass of crisp Pinot Grigio for your eyes. It helps them unwind a bit after a long day. Soothing, cooling and comforting. It’s been a couple of months now and I’m still using it. That’s got to mean something, right?
