The delicate skin under the eyes is often the first area of concern when it comes to signs of ageing. Finding an eye gel that will tackle sagging, dark circles, puffiness and fine lines can be a task and a half. That’s why we were thrilled to find a skincare product that actually works on this difficult to treat part of the face.
If you have wasted hard earned cash on skincare remedies that don’t live up to expectations, you are not alone. Poor-performing or over-hyped products could be why up to 33 per cent of the UK’s population spends exactly nothing on skincare – an industry Finder UK says is worth in excess of £27 billion. Could they have simply just given up?
There is nothing more deflating than pinning your hopes on a new, often expensive, wonder cream only to find it does precisely zero to improve your appearance. That is why we test products before recommending them. If you are using an instant eyelift product that is uncomfortable, doesn’t work or leaves an unsightly white residue on your skin, this review is for you!
Clinique Moisture Surge Eye 96-Hour Hydro Filler Concentrate
There is a reason why Moisture Surge™ Eye 96-Hour Hydro-Filler Concentrate is one of the brand’s fastest-selling products. It doesn’t just deliver almost instant results – it’s affordable.
What Clinique says about this product:
The brand markets this eye serum as a light-weight water gel. It says, it replenishes moisture and plumps up the eye area for a full 96 hours. As well as ironing out creases, it tightens the skin while brightening it. Yes, Clinique does promise instant results. It points to the use of Lipid-Sphere Technology to make this happen. By using a scientific-based approach, the brand has created an eye gel that replenishes hydration where it is needed and when it is needed.
Take a pea-sized amount and apply directly to the skin under and around the eye. This product can be used as a serum, instant eye lift or as a mask.
Our Experience of the Eye Gel
We received a free sample of this product with a purchase from Clinique. We liked it so much, we bought a full-sized version to test from Amazon with next day delivery.
Anything that appears to have gold or other types of ‘flakes’ in it can look a bit gimmicky. However, this product more than lived up to expectations. As well as delivering a welcome blast of coolness to the eye area, this gel provided an almost instant skin boost – and with no unpleasant tightening sensation or hard-to-cover residue. Within 10 minutes of an application, the results were visible.
One week after commencing use, the skin is plumped, hydrated and lines have diminished. Our tester has used the product morning and night. She said “I am 55 and finding a product that will actually work on my eye area has been hard. This gel is a keeper. It works, and I love it. I’ve even invested in some new eye makeup to show off my rejuvenated skin.”
