The Body Shop Vitamin C Eye Reviver Duo
Advantages: Good price for two products
Disadvantages: Not for those who need a tightening and uplifting product
I have been using the Body Shop Vitamin C Eye Reviver Duo for about 6 months now.
The product comes in a long circular tube much like a mascara, silver in the middle and with two bright orange ends. The silver part holds the lotion division of the product and each orange end unscrews to provide you with the separate lotions.
Each end has the "refresher" or "reviver" written on it with a small picture of where the lotions are applied so you can easily identify which end you need.
***WHAT ARE THE PRODUCTS CLAIMS?***
Refreshers and revives the eye area with the use of a cooling roller ball gel and under eye cream.
"Leaves skin looking radiant" and roller ball "helps reduce puffiness."
***UNDER EYE REVIVER***
The under eye reviver section comes in the form of a lotion, off white in colour and of slightly creamy consistency. The lotion is applied gently under the eye area, it soaks in within about 10-15 seconds via a small slightly pointed foam sponge which has lasted the entire 6 months well. My under eye area does looks minimally brighter but due to fact it has no properties to tighten the under eye skin temporarily I don't really feel that it is "reviving" my eyes. The actual application is good, the sponge allows accuracy and can be dabbed around without pulling the skin which sometimes happens when using fingers or brushes. I like the length of the application sponge as unlike the roller where you need to be close to the skin to control, with this further away is better as you can see what you are doing.
***AROUND THE EYE REFRESHER***
This portion comes in the style of a roller ball much like a few other branded eye products of recent time. Again easy to apply and soaks in within 10-15 seconds of application to the eye lid and outer corner of the eye. It does feel refreshing but I think that has more to do with the fact it is a cold metal ball rolling over the skin than the product itself. Again I don't really notice any viable refreshing or reviving to my eye area.
The actual application is nice give the tube a little shake to get the gel to the ball and it rolls on very smoothly, easily controlled with the shortness of the tube.
Product has a shelf life of 6 months which if you use religiously on a daily basis may just get there, in my experience the lotion runs out quicker than the roller ball end.
The item is available from most Body Shop retail outlets and online at www.thebodyshop.co.uk
A full ingredients list can be found at the website but the two main ingredients they push are aloe vera and camu camu berry.
The Body Shop products are not tested on animals and support fair/ethical trade.
For £11 at the time of writing (Oct 2011) you will receive 5mls of each part (lotion and roller).
It is a reasonable price given you get two products in one applicator however I think this product is better suited to young skin of teens and early twenties who have yet to require a uplifting tightening product.
Review maybe posted on ciao and dooyoo under the same user name :)
Summary: A good value product for teens and and early twenties in my opinion
