Hello! How’s your week going? Today I want to tell you about an eye contour, since you usually ask me about these products and I would really like to share my experience using this one from Paula’s Choice so you can see if it’s the right one for you.
BRAND: PAULA’S CHOICE
PRODUCT: RESIST ANTI-AGING EYE CREAM
SKIN TYPE: ALL
RECOMMENDED FOR: UNISEX
It’s been a while since I talked about an eye contour (this was my last review of one). Somehow, I always ended up postponing it, but that’s over, today I will finally tell you about my experience with this Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream.
Dark circles and fine lines in the eye area are a very common concern, since they appear in an area that is especially visible to us and the eyes are probably one of the features that we first look at when meeting someone. Who hasn’t been asked about their dark circles about a long night?
This specific product is mainly focused on reducing the fine lines and wrinkles that appear around the eye area. Their appearance is normal, since when we express our emotions the skin of this area (which is especially thin) stretches and relaxes countless times and it is easy for all that movement to end up taking its toll. Soon I want to publish a more detailed post about dark circles and eye contours in which I will give you more specific advice depending on their characteristics or their causes.
As I mentioned, this product was developed to help us mitigate expression lines. For this, in its composition it incorporates various types of peptides, very effective in helping us to improve fine lines. In addition, it also includes various types of antioxidants, such as ascorbyl glucoside (a derivative of vitamin C about which you can read more here), resveratrol, beta-glucan or vitamin E, which help us reduce the damage caused by free radicals on collagen fibers (responsible for keeping our skin firm). This eye contour does not include perfumes or essential oils among its ingredients, something common in this type of product, since they are applied to a particularly sensitive area.
The texture of this eye contour is very dense, so a very small amount is needed to apply it throughout the area. Precisely, since it is such a thick product, you will need to massage it gently to ensure that it spreads well, but in a few seconds it is perfectly applied. This product does not have any characteristic odor.
What you are asking yourself right now is: and is it an effective product? Does it provide visible results? In my case, this eye contour has helped me to significantly improve the fine lines that were appearing under the eye and what is known as crow’s feet (although it is true that, at the moment, these fine lines are not especially worrisome to me). After a few weeks of using it I started seeing results, and I have noticed an important difference since I started using it, so it is a perfect addition to my routines.
After having discovered it, I am very clear that this product has come to my routines to stay, when I finish it I am clearly buying it again.
HOW TO USE:
This eye contour is intended to be used after cleansing, after the toner and the serum, just before your moisturizer (and, if it is in the morning, your sunscreen). It can be used interchangeably in our morning and night routines (or both), although I prefer to do it in the latter due to the texture of the product.
This graphic aims to help you understand in which part of your skincare routine you should use each product.
You don’t need to do all the steps from this routine (but you should always cleanse, moisturize and use sunscreen).
Remember it’s key to do a patch test every time you consider adding new products to your skincare routine.
