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.

At the risk of getting lashed (no pun intended) out on left right and centre, let me tell you my struggle with eye creams: I didn’t believe that they work.

I used to write on health and beauty topics for a couple of local magazines back in the day and was inundated everyday by beauty products — from mascaras and hair serums to foundation and of course, eye creams. I enjoyed working on the makeup stories because I could see immediately whether that shade of concealer would melt like second skin or if the mascara really made my eyes pop. But when the stash of eye creams started bursting out of the office drawers it was hard to ignore them anymore.

This is a question that came from just before Mothers’ Day, but I hope that it will be relevant to all of you who may be shopping for you moms, mom-in-laws or if you have concerns about wrinkles and fine lines at the eye area.

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 believe most of us have heard of the skincare brand La Mer, and its famous product the Creme de La Mer. I have been curious about the miracle Creme for a very long time, and was so close to purchasing it recently before I got held back by the price and my own rational mind.

Finally, I had the opportunity to attend a skincare workshop organised by La Mer a couple of weekends ago and got myself familiarised with their range of various skincare solutions.

The La Mer Moisturizing Collection.

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!
