I was thrilled to receive an email from Preksha at TIA letting me know that I had been chosen to review the LiftLab Lift & Firm Eye Cream ($90 in the shop). I couldn’t wait to get the product and begin testing.
At last it arrived and I eagerly unwrapped it. The first thing I noticed was that there were no directions on the box about how to use the product. The same was true on the actual jar of cream: no directions at all. Not dismayed, after all this was a sample product for me to use and review, I happily began using the cream that evening before bed.
The cream has a soft “aquatic” green color and it had a very slight fresh but barely discernible fragrance. It was light and smoothed easily over the skin under my eyes and at the beginning lines of crow’s feet. It felt great to use a cream that did not tug at the tender skin around my eyes.
With no directions I was left on my own to determine the method of application. So I just patted the product under my eyes and over the beginnings of crow’s feet. Next morning I tried the same thing but it irritated my eyes. After that, I began applying it only at night before bed and I gently massaged it in. That worked fine.
After using it for about two weeks there was little to no change in the appearance of my bags and fine lines. At three weeks, I thought there might be a slight improvement and then at four weeks, my husband actually noticed that I just didn’t have those yucky bags under my eyes and he even said I . . . . . “looked much younger lately”. Determined to use the cream for at least 30 days, I continued with the nightly applications. The results have been extremely positive.
As I said on my response to Marta’s challenge to join the debate about aging, “. . . Happily when I was at my usual phys check-up this week, the technician did a double take look in my direction and said, “You’re 70???” I answered “yes” and she said, “WOW! No way.” The other tech told me that was meant in a hugely positive way.”
I love the Lift Lab product which has perceptively changed my usual baggy and occasionally puffy eyes to the smoothness of my younger years. Unfortunately, the cost is prohibitive and one I cannot justify. I really wish it was less expensive! Thank you so much for choosing me to try this remarkable cream. It has been a wonderful discovery.
