I seem to remember that the concept of a cooling metal roller ball for de-puffing products was pioneered by Creme de La Mer, but other than feeling pleasant to the touch, I don’t think these really make any actual difference to the skin – it’s just too fleeting a moment for it to have any impact. What is more likely to make an impact though, is the product itself. I struggle with eye creams that don’t make my eyes worse – all the promises of plumping etc seem to mean only puffing with me, and since the worst skin care allergic reaction I have ever had was with an eye serum, I’m just all round sceptical. I’m never sure if eye creams really do any more than your regular face cream would – the talk that regular cream is too heavy etc for the ‘delicate eye area’ is something I am not entirely convinced isn’t just to indoctrinate us into buying even more products! However, there’s something about this Clinique eye roller that I find intriguing…an eye serum that I actually do want to try. I don’t have much information on it…it just looks impressive. I’ve lately been very impressed with Clinique products – I’m currently trying their Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector that comes with impressive trial stats (in 4 weeks can improve dark spots, age spots and darkened pigmentation from acne scars) and claims prescription strength results – whether it reduces any pigmentation or not, it is a gorgeous serum texture that my skin loves. It’s on counter from April.
