HealGel - available for £32* in places like SpaceNK and CultBeauty :)
I've been waiting to write this review for a while, my skin has gone from being great, to terrible and covered in eczema and slowly getting back to normal again. I thought the different phases of my ever-changing skin would be a great test for this, so I put it through it's paces!
Wanna know how it performed? I'll get to that in a minute, first lets see what makes it tick.
There's two main ingredients in HealGel Eye - Arnica and Madecassoside, I'll be honest, I've never heard of these before, but then I'm not all sciency. To cut out a lot of the confusing science talk, apparently they sooth (sounds good), and they boost the collagen in your skin - collagen is good for keeping elasticity in your skin (stopping you from looking older). Needless to say, this is focussed as an anti-ageing product. It also has a hyaluronic acid complex that apparently locks moisture deeper into the skin, who knew!
How to use it: It can be used to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, as a refresher for your eyes, or as a base for your makeup.
What did I think?
I don't have *that* much darkness under the eyes, so I can't say I noticed much of a difference there, but then there wasn't too much to correct, just a little blueness in the inner corner. However, what I did notice is how it would very effectively tighten the area around the eye. I'm not sure if this is how it reduces the appearance of wrinkles, but it worked well in that way for me. I don't have too many fine lines around my eyes, I'm quite lucky, but I do have some and some days they certainly look worse than others. Those are the days I reach for this, to help boost my skin when it's really lacking and it really does help, and noticeably. You only need the smallest amount, and it spreads really well, I always know if I've used too much, as the vapours from it I'll feel in my eyes, lol. Just blend it in with your ring finger, or dab with the same finger and it absorbs really quickly.
All in all a fab product that's performed really well on my normal skin, and eczema ridden sensitive skin, I've been really pleased how consistent it's been and how well it's done under those conditions.
