Review – Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads

26 Jan

c9c7b26c

I received a sample of the Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads from Birchbox.  For $18.00 USD, you will receive 5 pairs of pads.

I only received 1 pair, but oh well.

What Birchbox Says:

BIRCHBOX BREAKDOWN

For a better round-the-clock solution to fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness, try these gel pads with 100 percent pure collagen. The hydrating pads plump and restore the youthful appearance around your eyes and enhance eye contour naturally without any scary needles. These easy-to-use beauty wonders repair sensitive skin around your eyes after time in the sun, and help brighten eyes.

HOW TO USE

After cleansing, open foil pack and immediately apply one pad beneath each eye. Apply evenly to ensure a good contact with the skin. Leave on for 20 minutes then peel and dispose. Do not reuse.

What FairyGodMother says:

Basically, this is a super moisture infused eye pad that sticks to your skin.  Like this:

024059a9

It’s weirdly annoying to wear around for 20 minutes.  They are pretty thick and heavy, so you very much feel them on your skin.  Is it terrible?  No, just irritating enough to be irritating for 20 minutes, but not irritating enough to hate it.

Does this deliver what it promises?

Yes, the results are instant and last about a day.  This stuff hydrates like nobody’s business.  If you have dry skin or tiny wrinkles under your eyes, this will minimize them temporarily.

Does it work on dark circles?

No idea.  I don’t have dark circles and the description makes no promises about diminishing dark under eye circles.  Some reviewers seem to think it made a difference though.

Will this help on puffiness?

Yes, temporarily because it pumps everything else around the eye.

Would I purchase this?

Yes, this is a good product.  It’s nice to use before a special occasion or if your skin has been going through some major dryness.

Have you tried the Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads?  Do you like them?

Review – Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream

13 Jan

I honestly cannot remember the last time I received an eye cream in one of my beauty subscriptions.  This was a nice change, even though I had a Kiehl’s product not too long ago.  Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream seemed different enough from I usually see in the monthlies and have received from Kiehl’s.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream costs $37.00 USD for 0.5 fl oz.

What the manufacturer says:

Midnight Recovery Eye

A restorative eye treatment for younger-looking eyes by morning

  • Leaves under-eye skin feeling strengthened and replenished
  • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines
  • Reduces puffiness and dark under-eye circles
  • Infused with the same natural ingredients as Midnight Recovery Concentrate plus Butcher’s Broom, which improves microcirculation and reduces inflammation
  • No parabens, fragrance, mineral oil or silicones

 

What Your Fairy Godmother says:

At first impression, this has a very pleasant scent.

It’s a thick cream, and you don’t need very much of it.  The sample was very typical sample size and I used it for almost 2 months.  So, even though the price is high you will get a lot of use from the regular size tube.

I’m not able to confirm any diminishing for lines.  I’m not saying it doesn’t work in the long run, but it didn’t make a difference in a month.

I don’t think it reduces puffiness.

I don’t have dark under-eye circles, so that claim didn’t apply to me.

Overall, this is a nice moisturizer, but I think if you are looking for some serious wrinkle relief, you may want to look into something that is specifically made for wrinkles.

Would I buy it? 

I would, if I didn’t already have a favorite eye cream.  I’m basing this on how well it kept my eye area moisturizer.  It was good, but what I’m currently using is better.
