I've never been one for eye cream; I never really felt the need to use one until recently. I have received a lot of eye products from beauty boxes over the past few months and have tried a few out, but none have given me quite the effect that I expected. That is until I started using this beauty.
The Ginvera Green Tea Jade Dark Eye Circles Roll Away (that's a mouthful!) claims to brighten eyes, firm eye contours and prevent eye bags, crows feet and fine lines. Just what I needed.
I first started using this as I started working out and doing longer car journeys to take my boyfriend to work before taking myself. Driving makes me incredibly tired and with going to the gym and trying to go to bed at the same time as normal I was waking up with puffy, dark circles under my eyes. I looked like I had been crying! The other eye creams weren't working too well for me so I started using this eye roller. What a difference it has made!
I apply this at night before I go to sleep, rolling it under my eyes and sometimes going up to the lids. I gently pat it into my skin with my fingers and leave to dry. When I wake up in the mornings I find my eyes look more awake, less puffy and brighter in colour. My eyes no longer feel like I have been crying and any soreness I feel under my eyes, being from lack of sleep or using a product that sets off the sensitivity of my skin, is instantly cooled. Occasionally I will use this in the mornings too, especially if I forget to put it on the night before! It gives my tired eyes a healthy glow, whilst working overtime to tackle my eye bags and puffy skin. This glow even makes my face look contoured, without wearing any make-up!
The formula is made out of Jade, which contains healthy minerals, Green Tea, which hydrates and reduces wrinkles and redness, and Ginseng, which include antioxidants to heal damaged and ageing skin. It is a water based formula as opposed to creamy and is unscented, so it absorbs into your skin almost instantly.
This roller has given me the confidence to wake up before work and not apply make-up. Before I'd cake myself in make-up, just so I didn't get comments like "Are you ok? You look shattered". Now I can walk into work bright eyed and looking well slept.
I can definitely say that the skin under my eyes has become more firm over time with this. Although I don't have any wrinkles just yet (god bless), I have a feeling that this would definitely help reduce the look of them, and hopefully delay the ageing process. I have no intention to stop using this product based on this hypothesis.
This roller pen puts the beauty in "beauty sleep". I don't think I'll ever be without it. Ginvera is one of the only brands I trust to do what it says on the tin. The Jade Dark Eye Circle Roll Away pen is no exception.
