If you ask me if there are any cute, new or innovative beauty finds recently, I would refer you to these adorable little cubes from Peter Thomas Roth.

Each box of Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-tox De-puffing Eye Cubes comes with 6 little tabs of liquid, which you should leave in the freezer to freeze them into ice-cubes. Each pack also comes with 6 gauze satchets reminiscent of teabags.

Who would have known that tucked at a corner of Sephora Ion Orchard store is a treatment room from Dior, that is aimed at offering a luxurious and pampering session for patrons?

Simply walk towards the Dior makeup counter at Sephora and enquire on the facial treatment menu, and you could be led to a treatment spa room at the back!

If you are currently shopping for a moisturizer, do you have an imaginary criteria where you could check off every item in the list before you narrow down your options?

Some prefers their moisturizers to have SPF, others prefer oil-free version. Some consumers look for other catch phrases such as “anti-aging”, “non-comedogenic”, “hydrating” etc.

Today, I would like to introduce two Whitening Moisturizers and coincidentally, both contain plant extracts.

Because of my perpetual eye bags and dark eye circles, I have been trying tonnes of eye products over the past year. It doesn’t help that my eye area is ultra sensitive, and breaks into milia seeds or little rash rather easily.

Over the tonnes of eye products that I have tried, I have picked three mid-range products – similar in pricing but of different nature and are suitable for different purposes.

I may not be a facial junkie, but I have heard loads of reviews about Leonard Drake facial. I was invited to try out their facial services at Plaza Singapura and in short, they did not disappoint.

I have always had this impression that Dr. Ci:Labo is this undiscovered gem in the beauty realm. This impression was forged from reading beauty forums and blogs. Long before this brand landed in Singapore, apparently many girls traveled to Japan to stock up on their skincare products!

Previously on Miss Glitzy’s Monologue, I mentioned that I went on an eye-product testing spree. Without further ado, let me present my findings.

1. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Lift and Strengthening Eye Capsules(S$98)

I have reviewed this product before. Among all the eye products I have tested, I like the EA capsules as the results come fast and furious.

I could see some firming, de-puffing and smoothing benefits after using just one capsule. However, the texture of the serum is very oily, so I only use this product at night. Fortunately, despite its oily texture, I did not develop any new oil spot.

2. The Body Shop Nutriganics Smoothing Eye Cream (S$32.90)

One of the latest organic range from The Body Shop, this eye cream aims to capture the first signs of aging and targets the fine lines and wrinkles around the eye.

I like the texture of the product, it is of the right consistency – neither watery nor heavy. I could apply this under the eye before I pile on my makeup.

The eye cream was rather effective in smoothing the eye area. I would regard this as an affordable day moisturizer for the eyes.

3. Kiehl’s Eye Alert (S$45)

This product claims to de-puff and lighten dark eye circles. It sounded like a god-send and with star ingredients such as Vitamin E, Cucumber extract and Caffeine (common ingredients among eye cream), I had high hopes for it.

The texture is gel-like but it leaves a very waxy finish. I couldn’t tell any difference after using the Eye Alert for two weeks, so I guess this product wasn’t quite effective on me.

4. Kose Cosmeport Clearturn Q10 Eyezone Mask (Not available in Singapore – US$16.99 for 18 sheets on Amazon.com)

This is the drugstore range of Kose skincare products available in Japan and Taiwan. The eye zone masks are not only affordable, but also really effective in reducing puffiness and providing hydration. I left the masks under the eyes for about 15 minutes and I could see the effect  almost instantly. Regular use would leave your eyes less puffy and more supple. Because the masks contain acid (hyaluronic acid), your eyes might feel slightly red during the first couple of minutes when you put on the masks.

Verdict:

Different people have different problems to tackle and similarly, the products that I have tried are designed to address different concerns. As most beauty brands do not provide eye product samples, I hope my little testing spree was helpful in one way, or another.

If you are using other products that are effective, feel free to send me your review and I can share it with everyone here!
