When I last told you about the Guerlain Anti-puffiness eye patch, I spent so much time on the floor looking for lost jaws after revealing the price, I thought I’d offer a quick (and maybe more affordable) option – hence Save and Splurge!
Save and Splurge is where I show you 2 similar items by 2 different brands that I have tried. They may not work quite the same way, but it’ll offer you options for your wallet for a similar effect/product. Do note however, that it is based on products I have tried, so whilst there are many save and splurge options out there, these are my views. You can find them under the category of Challenges.
Taking my cue from the Guerlain eye patch, we start with eye treatments.
Save: Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll on (RM21.90)
So many people love this and its pretty affordable too because you can get it on sale. The Garnier Roll On rolls on the eye area and cools it down. It does not deflate my eye bags as quickly as the Guerlain patches did but it feels lovely on.
Roll it on, pat off the excess and relax. Other than the lovely cooling effect on my eye area, it didn’t do much for me in terms of reducing eye bags, or dark circles.
Splurge: Dior Capture Totale Instant Rescue Eye Treatment (RM270)
Been using this one for months off an on. Think of it like the proverbial cold teaspoon over the eyes but a tad better. The flat top applicator is made of palladium – a metal that cools down quickly between uses and draws heat away from the skin very quickly too so the eye area feels and looks refreshed.
You can squeeze out the eye cream and apply it with the applicator, gently pressing on the area around your eye – the Dior SA will show you how. I’ve nearly finished the cream, but I’m keeping the tube for the applicator just to refresh my eyes in the morning. Saves me the trip to the fridge to pick up a cold teaspoon in the morning 😛 I do find that it helps depuff eye bags slightly and it certainly makes you feel more awake plus I just like the cool feel on my skin.
If you liked this, I’ll try to have more Save and Splurge recs to come from time to time:)
Now, which of these 2 items have you tried and which do you like? 🙂
