Anything that helps improve the appearance of my under eye area is welcome! Since becoming a mum, going back to work full time and fast approaching a big birthday, my skin has needed a lot more love; especially around the eye area. So when I heard about the EyeWake Collagen Gel and the brands partnership with Women’s Aid, I was interested to find out more.
The EyeWake Collagen Gel is a simple product to use (check out the EyeWake ‘how to’ here), applying to cleansed skin before makeup, to help improve the appearance of dark circles, reduce puffy eyes and maybe even the appearance of lines and wrinkles too – making it sound very much like my kind of product! Plus, for every EyeWake bottle sold, a donation goes towards helping victims of domestic violence; a really worthwhile partnership in my opinion.
Containing 100% natural ingredients and having never been tested on animals, the EyeWake Collagen Gel is suitable for any skin type and proposes to help:
- Target puffy eyes
- Remove dark circles
- Improve elasticity
- Improve hydration
- reduce lines and wrinkles.
I’ve been using this twice a day now for about 3 weeks and I’m starting to notice that the skin under my eyes is certainly less puffy which is great. As far as lines and wrinkles go, I think this might be more of a long term benefit – so will keep investing!
I did wonder whether using the gel before applying makeup would make applying foundation a little tricky, with it leaving a sticky residue behind. That really isn’t the case. The gel sinks into the skin perfectly, allowing flawless foundation application over the top. I tend to cleanse and moisturise my face, apply the EyeWake gel and then by the time I’ve left the bathroom and got settled to apply my makeup, it’s absorbed sufficiently into the skin to be able to apply as usual.
So first impressions are really positive, worth the addition to my morning routine and certainly something I’ll continue to use in the hope that it will continue to improve the appearance of my eye area! Do you think you’ll give EyeWake a try?
