Beautycode's Cell-Lift Advance Eye Complex
This will be a quick one (or maybe it won't). Got it and started using this eye gel without any high expectation or whatsoever. Two weeks ago I was spending some time with my family in my hometown and one of my aunts went to Cosway to make a quick run to stock up on some skincare.
She was telling me about Beautycode's Cell-Lift Advance line and how she's liking them, that they are cheap and work well for the price. I was pretty much sold when she reassuringly talked about how the formula in gel form is super lightweight and will not give me oil seeds under my eyes. Now, the thought of getting an eye cream had been lingering in my mind for some time, and visualisation of Bobbi Brown, or Kiehl's, or Origins somehow hadn't helped it happen.
Incidentally a promotion was going on at Cosway for this particular skincare line. My aunt picked up two skincare items also by Beautycode and I picked the eye gel, it was something like Buy 2 Get 1 or Get 3 for RM140++; all I know is that my share for the eye gel was only RM42! I was instantly stoked when I realised how little money I was paying for the eye gel (considering Kiehl's is one hundred and fifty Malaysian Ringgit!)
Product is made in Switzerland. The packaging is okay. I like anything that comes in a pump, which this does. The tiny golden beads in the clear gel give it a somewhat luxurious "feel" but they don't really come out through the pump! It's a shame for I thought I'd be able to fondle the beads, gently smash them into tiny orange flakes with my fingers before I apply them on and let the skin around my eyes absorb whatever it is that makes them look SO golden and nutritious, ya know? But no, they don't come out. Yet that's okay because the final verdict is that I like this eye gel. It does the job keeping my eye areas soft, plump and well-hydrated. No irritations, just a tad bit sticky right after application but it subsides completely after a couple of minutes :)
What I don't like is that it doesn't say what it does for my skin. It instructs as follows,
"Apply morning and evening after cleansing and toning. Gently pat around the eye zone with fingertips, working from outer areas towards the bridge of nose." A list of the ingredients and a few lines of advice for caution ensue on the box, and pretty much nothing else.
I would have liked to know if this is an anti-aging product or what skin problems it is supposed to help with. Other than that, I thought this was a pretty good deal. Will recommend it as a basic hydrating eye product. You're probably not gonna see much improvement on eyebags and circles, but the hydration it provides is just lovely.
Ever tried anything from this line? What are your recommendations for a good eye cream/gel?
