The other day I was watching some YouTube videos and Fleur de Force recommended First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy (*phew*). Getting past the ridiculously long name, I decided to do further research and read nothing but good things about it and so I decided to give it a try. I will gladly splurge on skincare as I believe looking after our skin is very important and the younger we start, the better.
At first sight, the packaging is very small, even smaller than an average eye cream, with only 10ml. It's a squeezable tube with a metal applicator, which remains cool at all times and makes application really pleasant. The product itself is slightly peach coloured, which is great to counteract the darkness under the eyes. Although small, a little goes a long way so I believe this will last a while.
Eye Duty Triple Remedy is free from Parabens, harsh chemicals and artificial colours.
Here are the ingredients and the claims:
MINIMIZE FINES LINES AND WRINKLES: Retinyl Palmitate and GABA
HYDRATE & PLUMP THE SKIN: Glycerin
DIMINISH DARK CIRCLES: Caffeine and Licorice Root
NOURISH AND CONDITION: Coralline Extract
COMBAT FREE RADICALS: FAB Antioxidant Booster
This product is just like a tinted moisturiser for the eyes. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical in the first few days and doubted this cream would do anything but after as little as 1-2 weeks I was very pleased by the results. I can certainly vouch for most claims above. My skin under my eyes feels more hydrated and plumped and my lines have become a lot smoother and less noticeable.
The only slightly negative thing is I haven't really noticed any improvement with puffiness. But still, I really enjoy the cooling sensation of the metal applicator. It feels very refreshing, especially first thing in the morning, when I'm feeling tired.
The coverage is light so I find this cream is perfect for days I just want a little something to make me look more awake. I love it for simple occasions like work or when I go out only to run errands. And the good news is, if I do want to cover my under eye area properly, I can still use this under concealer. It's very light in texture so doesn't look cakey at all.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely! However, I'd say this product will probably work best for people in their 20's and early 30's. Reason being is I don't think this is a heavy duty eye cream. As we age, the under eye area gets drier and I'm not sure this will be hydrating enough for more mature ladies. But if your eye area is not a big concern yet and you don't need too much coverage, I'd say definitely give it a try.
It retails for £26, but I bought mine from BeautyBay.com as they have it on sale for £21.58 (here). It's not a cheap product but I love that it works as a 2 in 1 product (hydrating and concealing) and makes my eyes look a lot healthier, so I think it's worth the investment. :)
