Product: Nivea DNAge eye cream
Purchased from : Ebay
The eye cream comes in a cardboard outer box that clearly shows the Nivea brand at the top. In the centre of the box it has 'DNAge cell renewal eye cream' and at the bottom it says ' includes folic acid to reduce wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes. The box has various blues and white all over it. The actual eye cream comes in a round plastic pot with a dark blue plastic screw cap. The pot design is very similar to the outer box.
When you unscrew the plastic cap there is a foil and plastic seal that you need to peel off. This ensures the product has not been tampered with or used before you receive it.
** product **
The skin around your eyes is far thinner and delicate than the rest of the facial area. One of the first areas to show signs of ageing is the delicate eye area, by using eye cream your ensuring that that area gets it's much needed nourishment and moisture to reduce the signs of ageing that we all want to avoid. The cream itself if very creamy, white in colour and doesn't have a scent.
This product has Folic Acid and Creatine added in the formula. It also includes UVA and a UVB light filter system which means that not only does it treat wrinkles and puffiness but the creatine increases the renewal of surface skin cells and folic acid supports those skin cells. The UVA and UVB light blocker system stops further damage (within reason) from the rays of the sun.
**Using the product**
I decided to buy another eye cream as mine had disappeared in a black hole somewhere in my house. Before Christmas I was a smoker and I also suffer from chronic illness which results in me having to take a lot of strong medications every day. When you start taking that amount of medications and add smoking on top it really makes a huge difference in your body.
I decided to buy another cream because I believe in treating and looking after the body before something really becomes an irreversible problem. I had noticed changes in my eye area such as it darkening, looking very thin and papery and of course those dreaded fine lines that just get deeper every time you look in the mirror.
I purchased this product from Ebay so it would come quickly. In all honesty I'm not a huge fan of Nivea products but when I saw this and read some of the reviews I just had to purchase it.
It is aimed at the over forty age group but in my opinion it can be used by any age and even before you need to treat fine lines. Because it is aimed at the overs age group in my opinion it means it is more nourishing and should be better at treating my own eye troubles.
As soon as I received this I opened it up straight away. I was initially glad it wasn't scented because there's nothing worse than being stuck with scent under your eyes. It looked lovely, really thick and creamy but when you actually put some onto your finger it isn't as thick as it looks.
It's the perfect consistency and stays dotted under the eye area with ease. When I was smoothing the cream in it actually felt really cooling and soothing and my eyes did feel less red and irritated within minutes of use.
The eye area looks moisturised without looking shiny and they remain moisturised all day. I have continued to use this eye cream every day and have noticed some improvement in the under eye area, it looks less crinkley, less purple and my veins don't seem to show as much as normal. I have also noticed that in the mornings my eye area doesn't feel as puffy especially in the mornings.
Although this pot is tiny, this will last a long time. Only a tiny dot sized amount is needed to cover the under and over eye areas on both eyes.
**Product Claims & Overall opinion**
Nivea DNAge claims to improve skins vitality, firmness and improve the appearance of existing wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes. I really believe after only 1-2 weeks worth of use that this claim is genuine. This product really does accomplish every one of its claims and at such a small price it really is a wonder product.
Some people pay hundreds of pounds for products that accomplish what this cream does and that is why I have awarded this product with the full five stars.
