This was one of those brands that I had heard of before but it had never crossed my mind to have a look at there counter or try some of their products. I recently entered into one of Davie Lackies twitter competitions two win two of the Shiseido products, to be honest whenever I see any of his products I always enter, for that just incase. It just so happened to be one of those moments and I woke up the next morning to a lovely tweet letting me know I had won. I was so happy and looked forward to receiving the products, when they turned up to my door I was ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to tear of the packaging and get inside.
The boxes where so nice, its not usually something I comment on but they really made me feel as though I was playing with something expensive, the first thing I pulled out was the thing I was most excited about after looking at the products online. It was the Shiseido White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream, this stuff is just ah, its amazing. As many of you will already know I am just getting into my skin are playing with new things and looking for new bits and bobs that will help my skin. Eye cream was an area that I hadn’t yet played around with as I have quite sensitive eye areas so was a little concerned about what to go for. Then this little beauty made its way into my life, as usual I have to start with the packaging. To be honest I would have started with that anyway, it has the most gorgeous metallic lilac colours packing and is in such an unusual, pretty shape. It is a 15ml tube which I think is quite big for an eye cream, correct me if I am not mistaken on that one. For 15ml it costs a woping £55, which I personally think is crazy money for an eye cream. If you told me that my favourite foundation was that price I would be like okay yeah that’s fine. But I just can’t handle when its an eye cream.
But anyway, besides the price. The product the most important part, this cream is so thick and luxurious it honestly makes me super happy. When I first applied it I though it was a little too thick and thought it would take a while to really get into my skin but when I woke up the next morning I was amazed at how my under eyes felt. By about the third or fourth day of using it I could really see the difference in the colour of my under eyes. Its not something I ve ever really touched on here at CharlotteSamantha but I do tend to get bags under my eyes from time to time and this really got them under control. Of course it isn’t magic it takes a little while for it to actually get under the skin and working but once you have used it for a couple of days you can really see the difference so if you used it for a couple of weeks or months even, it would make the world of a difference. It does have a strong perfumed smell, which I was also a little concerned about with having sensitive under eyes but this has never irritated them at all which I was very surprised at. I apply this morning and evening, I take the spatula that it came with to scoop a small amount onto my ring finger, then I rub this between both ring fingers and dab it into my under eye.
I can defiantly say that this has made my eyes feel 100% better than they have done in the past. This is going to be a great eye cream to take on holiday to keep your under eyes hydrated from the sun. Keep an eye out on the blog next week for the other Shiseido product I got. Have you tried any of them, which would you recommend?
