A friend of mine was nice enough to give me a sample she received of Arcona's “The Eyes Have It” PM regenerating eye serum.
I like the fact that it’s all-natural. No parabans or ingredients, that look like they’ve been typed by my cat’s ass, while she sits on the keyboard.
Arcona claims this serum leaves the eye area firmer, brighter and younger-looking. That it reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases elasticity and hydrates. I concur. The second I dabbed it on my dark circles, the area looked brighter, lighter, and had a reflective quality (which I think was the retinol).
I then applied it around my eyes. Upon contact, the fine lines diminished. I put some on my eyelids, (which they specifically said not to do). They immediately looked and felt firmer and less like shriveled grapes, that I’d found in the back of my fridge.
Right below my bottom lashes, has some swollen pouchiness. Just a little, it’s not like I could shove a baby kangaroo in there or anything.
OMG. Puffy eyes, dark circles, brow cleavage, marionette lines, wrinkly eyelids, freckles gone wild, dry hair- I can only imagine what the readers of this blog think I look like.
Those Rembrandt Whitening Strips really didn't have the effect I was hoping for.
When I looked in the mirror the next morning, I was still impressed with the results.
Unfortunately, the directions say to “use once or twice a week”, which is taking every ounce of restraint I can muster.
I was using the sample so sparingly, because I thought it’d cost $80 or $90 to replace. Turns out it costs $32. Excuse me, I have to go apply ice cream scoopers full of the stuff to my eyes now.
I keep reading the name as Anaconda, which is the only thing keeping me from using it more than twice a week.
