We have certainly been loving those cheeky products from Anatomicals these last few weeks, and here we have yet another amazing product. I’ll start by giving you the chat on the product..
Wake up late. Scream. Look in the mirror. Scream. Look again. Scream. Wonder where your youthful good looks went. Apply this soothing gel under the eye area. Realise those looks were just hiding all along.
I think every girl has mornings like that one! This is a refreshing clear eye gel, containing the ingredients arnica and orange flower water. I only use this in the mornings and I think that is how the product is supposed to be used. It’s aim is to help your eyes wake up first thing, cool the eye area and make them feel brighter and more alert. Nowhere – apart from the name – does it say that it specifically targets problem areas, such as eye bags, wrinkles or dark circles so I presume that it helps generally improve the feel of whole eye area, even if it’s only temporarily. The tube looks a bit small but only the very smallest amount is needed for both eyes (no bigger than a pea), so this will last me forever and a day.
I’ve been using this for a few weeks now, just after cleansing and before I apply my make up. I squeeze some onto my ring finger and pat gently onto my whole eye area, concentrating on the under-eye. On application it feels lovely and cooling, and it definitely helps my eyes feel more alert and fresh. It sinks in quickly, doesn’t leave any residue behind and make up sits well on top of it. In terms of other benefits, it hasn’t reduced any dark circles nor particularly moisturised my skin – but then it doesn’t claim to. I don’t really get puffy eyes so I can’t comment on that, but other reviews have seen positive results on that front. I think that this product is more about how it makes you feel rather than actually improving anything, and for such a cheap price I’m quite happy with that!
Therefore if you struggle with getting yourself fully awake in the morning and your eyes feel heavy, I would highly recommend this – you’ll instantly feel a bit more perked up!
Anatomicals No Old Bags Allowed Eye Gel can be bought from Superdrug for £3.49.
