Lately, I’ve been in to products that prevent and repair. I don’t mention my age very often but I’m 29 next month which means it’s the BIG 3-0 next year (OMG!) so it’s no surprise that I’ve been extremely keen to try out all sorts of eye creams! Even a couple of years ago, I wasn’t all that bothered about eye cream, but all of a sudden, I’ve been pushed into this panicked fear of wrinkles and fine lines. My friends and I are all pretty nervous about turning 30, we’re all going to enjoy the last year of our twenties and take good care of my skin. I’ve already seen several grey hairs (to pluck or not to pluck?), I’m not going to be able to cope with the first sign of wrinkling, so looking after my skin is a huge priority at this stage of my life. Luckily, thanks to good genes, my face seems to be holding up well for my age but I’d still like to use these types of products to prevent or at least prolong the process of ageing! As they say, prevention is better than cure!
HealGel Eye is the 5th eye cream that I’ve tried. The other ones that I have tested were samples from beauty boxes. My least favourite was from Balance Me, which made the skin around my eye a bit red and a little bumpy! My favourite was by Murad, which was a lovely and effective eye cream but at close to £60 for 15ml tub, I was eager to find a slightly cheaper(ish) alternative and along came HealGel.
I put off using HealGel for the longest time. However, after finally trying the HealGel Face
, I’ve been so impressed with the quality and the effectiveness of it so I wasn’t at all apprehensive about using HealGel Eye. HealGel Eye comes in a bottle pump with a lovely pastel blue packaging. This formula is a cooling anti-ageing liquid gel with ingredients that corrects, lifts, revives and brighten. It’s also refreshing and soothing. The key ingredients are Arnica and Madecassoside which initiates a soothing and collagen-boosting process. It also contains a dual-action hyaluronic acid (current buzz word within the beauty world!) which locks in moisture deep within the skin. I don’t use a full pump of this each time, that would be far too much but by using a tiny quantity of it means that the bottle will most likely last about 6-8 months. I only dispense a tiny bit and lightly tap it around the eye area until it has absorbed. It feels light and refreshing and leaves skin feeling smooth, and it does a great job of getting rid of dark circles and puffiness, as well as keeping the wrinkles at bay! At £32 per bottle, it is the most reasonable price for an effective, high quality eye cream so this is an eye gel that I can afford to keep repurchasing every eight months or so! It is the best eye care product that I’ve tried so far!
