If there’s one thing that irks me big time, it’s reviewing product samples. How am I to determine the effectiveness of a skincare product just after using it a few times? So yes, I really rolled my eyes when I received this 5ml sample of Dr Alkaitis Organic Eye Crème from the US distributor awhile back. But when I started using it a month ago, I realized that it can well last me for two months because I don’t need too much of it each time.
Apart from the Luzern Pure Cleansing Creme and Gelee that were sent to me for review, I also received the Luzern Serum Absolut – Vanish, which is really an eye gel. I’m quite keen to test out eye products for the reason that that’s my most challenging area and it’s very hard to find something that works. My primary concern with my eye area is my eyebags, followed by my crow’s feet. My undereye dark circles aren’t as bad but I would be happy to find something that eliminates them.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye is described as the ideal companion to the highly successful Midnight Recovery Concentrate, and is made with no parabens, fragrance, mineral oil or silicones. Infused with the same natural ingredients as Midnight Recovery Concentrate, this night treatment restorative concentrate of essential oils and botanicals is said to improve the youthful appearance around the eye, leave the under-eye skin feeling strengthened and replenished.
I’ve been testing a couple of new facial products this year and this Ujene range from Switzerland is the latest. Somehow I find products from Europe work particularly well for me and this is one of the reasons I agreed to take three of their products for a complimentary review. The other reason is that these products contain Oviluxe, which is 99% purity collagen that acts as a moisture-magnet in skin, drawing and plumping up vital moisture within skin’s epidermis. Well, my skin can definitely do with more collagen, whether it is from food sources or from topical application of products.
