Olay Regenerist Eye Derma Pods
Advantages: This product really works on brightening up tired, wrinkly eyes
Disadvantages: Much too expensive, a lot of packaging
Recently I have noticed that in photographs my eye's are looking a little creased. I'm 28 now and I have to admit that I have not taken very good care of my skin. I spent too many nights falling asleep after nights out with a full face of make-up on, and in the later years I've had two small kids to keep me stressed and lacking in sleep, so I suppose I will never look as freshfaced as I did even as recently as four years ago!
I began to obsess about my eye lines. They are largely laughter lines which is a good thing I suppose. But I feel that they age me. I had seen the Olay Regenerist Derma-pods in an advertisement and I was sucked in by the gorgeous packaging and the innovative design. I felt that the expense would be justified if they worked. (These cost anything up to £20 for the small box depending on where you buy them)
I was really happy when they arrived in my letter box a couple of days after I had placed an order online. The box looked fab. Admittedly it is a complete waste of packaging, but you feel like you are getting a quality item. You take off the cellophane and push out the drawer and all of the Derma-pods are sitting in the box. There is an 8 week course in the box, you are advised to use the pods every three days. One pod will do both eyes.
On my first attempt I found it difficult to get the cream on to the sponge pad so that I could apply it to my eyes, but I eventually got the knack. You squeeze the cream out, pat it on to your eyes with the sponge then massage it gently in. It is quick and easy and the whole process takes seconds.
I was so surprised the next morning when the skin around my eyes already looked nourished and definitely less wrinkly. I was so happy. The skin around my eyes had literally soaked up all of the cream and was so healthy looking. I was converted.
That was at christmas. I now use the Derma-pods every few days. Probably slightly less than the recommended 3 days, but if I do leave it a few extra days without applying them, I immediately see the difference in my eye area.
I have read the other reviews about this product and I was so surprised to read that some other people were not so glowing about the Derma-pods. They have made a massive difference to my life, I feel so much more confident knowing now that I don't look 10 years older than I am.
I find the pods are convenient to carry around, there is an awful lot of packaging in this product but for someone like myself who is always on the go, I find it so easy to pop a pod into my make-up bag. The cream dries in quite quickly so you can apply your make-up after a few moments. Ideally you would leave it overnight but I have found that it can make an immediate difference to my eye area as and when I need it.
Of course, I would love to find a cheaper alternative and will be on the look out for something that works as well as this one, but in the mean time I am totally amazed by the results. It certainly gets my recommendation. It has given me my confidence back. I no longer feel like a little old lady.
Summary: Great item, but has a hefty price
