Clinique’s new Anti-Fatigue Cooling Eye Gel reviewed

You know what they say, first ain’t always best. And although rollerball eye products have been around for a while, Clinique’s new Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel is well worth checking out.

Formulated with soothing botanicals, skin-saving antioxidants and caffeine to constrict blood vessels in the skin and reduce ‘excess ocular baggage’ (ie eyebags), it’s the perfect morning after remedy. The metal rollerball helps too since anything cold will reduce puffiness. You can certainly feel it going to work as it tightens the skin around the eyes.

Personally, I’d have liked the finger-friendly indentations in the applicator to have been a little further away from the rollerball but this is a minor criticism of what is a great addition to your bathroom cabinet.

Grooming Guru Essentials: Dermalogica Total Eye Care

If like me, your blighted by the kind of dark circles only Uncle Fester would envy, this technically- advanced eye treatment is an absolute godsend. I’ve been using it for years and whilst I do use other eye products, I always seem to come back to this one. Part of its appeal is that it does much more than your average eye cream. For starters it contains gentle alpha-hydroxy acids to smooth the skin around the eyes and it contains special light-reflecting particles which manage to fool people into thinking your skin is in better nick than it actually is (no mean feat in my case) and that your dark circles aren’t nearly so…dark. Indispensable.
