Published 16/03/2011 | 12:37
Even when the rest of us looks up to scratch, our eyes can sometimes let us down. It's not so bad in the winter months but having eyes that scream dry, dark and sleepy just won't cut it now that the weather has turned a corner and the sunshine is here. This week we've been keeping an eye on our eyes and having found some products for healing, hydrating and concealing, we think it only fair you get a look in.
Here are our four of the best:
Peepers on the prowl for the perfect pick-me-up might well take a glance at Pro Intense Eye And Lip Contour Cream from Elemis. Designed to work with the skins natural function, this rich cream is packed with plant stem cells, Fucose and Wheat Amino Acid. Excellent for plumping and firming delicate skin around the eyes, two pumps should be all that's needed to firm, tighten and hydrate.
Available from selected salons, priced at €80.00
The on-the-go option
Tired eyes looking to brighten on the go will love Soap & Glory's You Won't Believe Your Eyes. Packed with LYCD (a product more commonly found in haemorrhoid cream !), this has become something of a cult product amongst fashion models looking to hide the signs of jetlag.
Brightening, tightening and oh so lightening, the moisture serum is dispensed through three handy roller balls which means running rings around those red circles can be done in a jiffy.
Available from selected department stores, priced at €10.50.
Sleepy souls with a few minutes to spare should wake tired eyes with a Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Mask. Packed with a raft of oxygenating ingredients including Vitamin C to Detox and Cucumber to de- puff, each mask comes vacuum packed with a separate activating fluid which ensures those active ingredients stay locked firmly in place. Brighten, de-puff, and hydrate eyes in 15 minutes flat - surely a sight for sore eyes !
Available from Arnotts, priced at €35.80.
Panda eyes on the hunt for cover will be more than impressed with the latest edition from Bobbi Brown. The Creamy Concealer Kit features a highly pigmented concealer and a handy setting powder which ensures a few quick dabs is all it takes to go from drab to fab. Super creamy, the really clever part is the pressed powder which acts as a sealer and works a charm at keeping those dark circles hidden well into the night !
Priced at €33, Available from Bobbi Brown.
