Eye Cream - once a feminine product that a 'real man' didn't need but the realisation has finally started to dawn - dark circles, lines and bags under your eyes ages you.....a lot!
The skin around your eyes is much thinner and delicate than the rest of your face as well as being the first place in a man where the signs of aging will show. Ordinary moisturisers can be too harsh for this thinner skin so more companies are developing specific products.
Lab Series eye cream is one such product. The cream is very light on the skin and quickly absorbed. You only need a tiny amount to cover the eye area - a little goes a long way. The cream aims to diminish the appearance of dark circles, visible lines and wrinkles, as well as reducing any puffiness.
After using this for almost a year I think I can safely comment on how it has worked for me. I have definitely noticed that the complexion around my eyes is much improved but the best test has been on those dark circles of shame! You know the ones: a few too many Gin and Tonics, stumbling in at 3 in the morning and then having to go to family lunch with eyes resembling Uncle Fester from the Addams Family! Well, this wonder cream has helped me conceal many a debauched night and for that I owe many thanks. It has also helped with some of my fine lines around the eyes (not that I have that many, mind you!) and I never really suffered from puffiness so can't comment on that area.
The cost can seem a little steep at around £25 for a 15ml tube. Boots.com often have a 3-for-2 offer on this range (as well as other men's toiletries) so it's possible to get better value by buying in this way.
The best things is that I purchased this product in January this year (2008) and now (Dec) I am still using the same tube! I use it almost every day (just once a day in the morning) so I'd say that was pretty good value for money of you ask me!
A skin regime is important for everyone, whatever your gender, but it doesn't have to be onerous. This cream is a one stop shop to slowing the signs of aging.
Men's toiletries is one is of the fastest growing markets at the moment so get on board with the metro-sexual in you and slap on some quality products!
