When I received my beautiful blue jar of Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Firming Eye Repair ($75), I wondered if this was a sample-sized jar – it was so small! I got my answer as I started using it – a tiny bit goes so far. As a matter of fact, I’ve been using it a.m. and p.m. for over 60 days, and there is still a few weeks’ worth left in the teeny jar.
The first thing I noticed (besides the size) when I started using the Firming Eye Repair was how well it layered and how rich it felt. It’s a wonderful, luscious cream that glides on softly and makes my skin feel moisturized and healthy. My eyes are super sensitive, and if I wear certain products too close to them, they burn and turn red like a rabbit. Fortunately, when I used this product around the eye area, I never once had any type of reaction.
So… did it work? The claims for the Firming Eye Repair say that it lifts and tightens the entire eye area, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, and keeps makeup in place. With the copper peptides for collagen building and to firm the delicate skin around the eye, I wondered if this could make any difference to my 57-year-old skin.
Well, after 60 days I can say it was a really nice experience to use this jar of product. It is so silky and pleasing, and it really does make a beautiful makeup base. Smoothing concealer over it is a breeze; in fact, it’s better than anything I’ve ever tried. I also did notice a small difference in the finest of lines and crepiness on the under-eye area. To be honest – it wasn’t a huge difference, but to me it was noticeable. I just wish there was an endless supply in that little jar!
