Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

Over the passed few months my eyes have suffered at the hands of my weird sleeping patterns, I wake up with dry, puffy, purple bags under my eyes most mornings. I have tried different eye creams and recently stumbled upon an eye gel, so I thought I would share my views on the Nivea Visage Aqua Sensation Anti-Shadow Eye Cream and No7 Beautiful Skin Vitality Eye Roll-on.

Our eyes are one of the most sensitive places on the body and the skin around them is equally as delicate so choosing the perfect eye cream can be very hard.  Nivea Aqua Sensation is very light and uses Hydra IQ to help create aquaporins.  Aquaporins are our skin cells 'hydration channels' which is why Nivea claim this cream has an instant and long-lasting effect on reducing signs of tiredness, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.  I found my eyes feeling more nourished and any flaking skin quickly heals to become smooth.  When using this product twice daily I do notice signs of my eyes looking a lot fresher and youthful.

I found No7's eye roll-on by accident really, and it has soon become one of my favourite skincare products ever. I apply a small amount under my eyes with the metal balls in the morning, I allow this is seep in to my skin for about five minutes. I still can't believe the results this gives, the puffiness goes down and even better so does the bruise-like purpleness! I look instantly awake, and no more nasty dark circles either.  I sometimes leave this in the fridge the night before if I know I've had a few late nights because I find, the cooler the gel, the better the result in the morning.

I am now very happy with my eye care routine, I use Nivea Aqua Sensation cream at night and then the No7 Beautiful Skin Vitality Roll-on in the morning.  Overall, my skin has benefited so much from these products and find the combination of them mix well to suit my skin.

What do you use to keep your eyes looking young?
