I say: "Holy moly, it DOES!!!!".
I pride myself as being someone who has always looked after her skin, especially because I'm aware of how easily my "special" skin can get damaged.
I have always tried my best to protect it from atmospheric agents and the Sun, but no matter how hard I tried, there was something I could have done nothing to prevent: wrinkles!! Around my eyes, on my forehead and nose.
And the reason why I couldn't do anything to prevent them is because they were caused by years and years of almost constant squinting that comes with my condition.
I never really cared much about them to be honest, as they weren't too bad, but the stress from the last year or so has really worsened them and made them deeper. Fortunately they didn't grown in number, "just" in depth.
As you may all be aware I am not exactly swimming in cash and because I always thought cheaper end anti-wrinkle products wouldn't do much, I just didn't bother trying to fix them.
Until recently, when checking out the Boots website for reviews for another product I stumled upon this little baby and its uber brilliant reviews.
Honestly? I was curious... I thought "how could such a cheap anti-wrinkle product get such great reviews?!". So I put my researching cap on, and found an ocean more of extremely positive reviews. It goes without saying I found myself reaching for a little short of €12 in my wallet and buy one the following time I got near a Boots.
Well...let me tell you, I was ASTONISHED!
I was positively surprised because my super sensitive eyes didn't shed a tear nor did even realise I was putting something around them!!! Fantastic!
I also REALLY liked the application: the little metallic ball soothes and cools down the area around your eye SO well! Bye bye cucumber slices.
As for the results, after about ONE hour I could already see a difference in the wrinkles under and beside my right eye(the "worst" one)!
After about a week I could see results in all the areas I was using it and I considered myself satisfied had it not improved any further. Only...it did! It's been now about a month and the situation is as follows:
- under eye wrinkles completely gone under my left eye and almost completely gone under my right one
- crow's feet only slightly visible if I squeeze my eyes really tight(which I never do anyway)
- lines on the forehead are almost gone too, although I think in order for them to be gone completely I should probably stop being so Italian when I talk
- lines on the nose are half as deep but I reckon that's because there's no flesh whatsoever under the layers of skin, it's just bone.
So, if I had to give this little miracle a rate from 1 to 10, I would probably go for... 11 !!!
I shall most definitely purchase again....or maybe not. Seeing as it's doing such a great job, I may not have to look after those lines for a while yet after the little "bottle" is empty.
I would most definitely recommend this to anyone who will care to listen.
