I was excited to have the opportunity to try Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment
($45 in the TIA shop). I am constantly trying to find a solution to these puffy eyes, and one especially droopy eyelid that I have developed in the last 5 years, in addition to the dark circles I have had since I was very young.
When I received the “Juice”
about 6 weeks ago, I had been using another eye treatment for about 7 months that touted to visibly diminish lines, creases, dark circles, and puffiness, renew collagen, increase firmness, and reinforce elasticity. Before I started using the Juice Eye Repair Treatment I made it a point to closely examine the eye area again making notes. I still had the same puffiness I started with. The wrinkles and circles were not as intense but definitely still obvious. The droopy eyelid had not changed and I noticed sadly that the skin on the inner corner of my eye had this awful “old” goose bump-like texture…yikes!
I was to use the Juice treatment morning and night. The bottle had this odd flat disk at the end where the cream is dispensed. This was the massager I guessed, like some of the other manufacturers use on their eye treatments. I always thought that was some sort of gimmick. I used the “Juice” on only my left eye for 3 weeks (what I considered the droopy eye) just for comparison with the cream I was already using.
At first, the disk seemed awkward but then after a couple times it did really feel good… like a mini massage and it made the cream feel warm on my skin. Within several minutes I noticed a smoothing of the texture of the skin and a lessening of the puffiness – although not enough to make the puffiness disappear. And so it went for 3 weeks without any further noticeable difference in comparison to the other brand I was using. After 3 weeks I added in the right eye and continued using the treatment on both eyes for the remainder of 6 weeks.
In conclusion… I noticed that, indeed, the skin around my eyes was much smoother and brighter than when I started 6 weeks ago. Even those goose bumps seem to be disappearing! I could wake up in the morning and my eyes did look rested …except… for the puffiness. Although there was a slight improvement in the puffiness at the time of the massage and application of the cream, I am afraid the puffiness and droopiness remained largely unchanged.
Would I use this again? Probably yes, if the product was more aggressive with the puffiness. I am very happy with the smoothness and brightness of the eye area. More so than my previous cream, but I sure wish I could make those puffy eyes just evaporate.
Thanks again for giving me this opportunity to evaluate your new products. It really is fun to compare and watch my skin react …or not !!
