One of the most oft-asked questions of me is this “Can you recommend me an eye cream?” or something along the lines of how to treat the lines we inevitably get around the eyes. It’s a fact of life. Don’t want lines around your eyes? Don’t blink. Don’t show emotion. Or get botox 😛
But you know what? I sort of dread getting questions like that because I’ve a terrible habit – I don’t use eye cream. There, said it!
Yes, I know you’re there behind your computer monitors/mobile phones going “Tsk! Call yourself a beauty blogger!” and unfortunately, that’s also the truth LOL! 😀 So no, ladies and gents, I’m not your foremost authority on caring for the eyes. I am however, blessed that I don’t have crepey or wrinkly lids, nor abundant crow’s feet. That might be what’s made me think I’m invincible (which I’m not of course)
But it is with this in mind that I preface my thoughts on the new La Mer Illuminating Eye Gel. A new product that cares for the skin around your eyes and which is light enough that it absorbs quite readily into the skin without feeling greasy and which makes a pretty kickass eye makeup primer (expensive but kickass nonetheless!)
