It’s not secret that I’m getting on a bit, certainly in the beauty blogging world. It’s actually something I’m wondering how much longer I can keep doing, you know, the lines keep getting linier (yeah I made that word up!), the face generally is starting to show the signs of wear. In particular the lines on either side of my mouth and the whole eye area….I have used several great eye creams over the years but the old eyelids…. well they’re not ageing too well and the eye creams I’m using don’t quite seem to do the job.
So when I heard about the Darphin Uplifting Serum Eyelids Definition and it seemed just the product for me.
This serum promises to firm things up and reshape eyelids by tightening, renewing and protecting as well as smoothing.
First thing to note, and I didn’t realise this before I got the product, is that this is a SERUM, which means of course, you use this before your usual eye cream. It’s a lightweight gel texture that quickly disappears into the skin. You simply apply this morning and night below the eyes, on the eyelids and then under the arch of the eyebrows.
I’m finding this really effective actually, which for £45 it really should be. I think it’s light gel texture helps, you know sometimes when gels dry they have a tightening feeling, and so it is with this. You can feel it tightening as it dries, the plus side of which is that the feeling disappears and it feels as though there’s nothing on your skin. The whole area feels smoother and softer and so far so good. Admittedly, I have only been using this for four weeks, but I as I’m sure I’ve said elsewhere, I am not sure I believe that eyecreams have long term effects, I think that if you stop using them you stop seeing the effects, so I feel I can only judge eye creams on how they act while you’re using them and this works fantastically well.
Highly recommended to anyone who’s starting to feel their eyelids need a bit of help!
