I finally have another review up! This time it’s on the Nivea Visage Q10plus Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream that everyone’s been raving about.
Being 23, I’m starting to be more aware that the good condition of my skin will not last.
I’m ageing and I will eventually start seeing wrinkles around my eyes.
But since I’m already caring for my skin with cleansers and moisturisers, I thought “Why not start tackling these impending wrinkles before they appear?”.
That’s how my little journey on finding the best eye creams began.
For someone in their early 20s, I’m not looking for an eye cream that will fight the deepest of damage around my eyes.
I only have a couple of lines from dry skin around the eye area, as well as a slight dark circles.
I was researching online and this eye cream kept popping up with amazing reviews and raves! So I thought I’d give it a try.
The consistency is like any other moisturiser and there’s no scent involved – so it’s great for anyone who has a sensitive nose.
It’s not greasy or unpleasant - so that’s another plus.
The packaging itself is quite simple and good to use.
There’s a nozzle at the end of the tube that allows just the right amount of cream to be produced, without drowning the tip of your finger with product when you try to squeeze some out. So that’s a third plus.
But I think that’s all the pros that I’ve found from this eye cream.
Maybe it’s because I don’t have wrinkles around the eye area yet – this might not be the cream for me.
But when I was reading reviews, this product seemed to have more advantages like tackling dry skin and being an all-round good “preventer” of problems.
This cream didn’t really do anything for me.
My dark circles are still evident – just as dark as they were before I started using this product.
My skin is still dry – the lines are still evident from the lack of hydration about my eyes.
Essentially the whole eye area is just about the same as it was before. And this is after using 3/4 of the tube. So I’ve given it sufficient time to shine.
It just didn’t work out for me.
Don’t get me wrong though. If you are looking for an eye cream to tackle wrinkles and crow’s feet, you might still want to give this one a go.
The price isn’t too bad at all, being a drugstore/high street purchase. And the product hasn’t reacted to my sensitive/acne-prone skin. Which is a extra tick to the pros.
If you are looking for an eye cream to target any other problems like dry skin, dark circles and prevention though, this product should be bumped downward in your list of “to try”.
I’ve come by other products that have worked well. One in particular was Clinique’s All About Eyes. That definitely blasted the dark circles out of my life, leaving me with nothing but a shadow of what I previously had to face when I looked in the mirror.
It will be something that I’d gladly revisit – I’m just shopping around to see whether there’s a cheaper alternative.
If you guys have any suggestions of eye creams that will help me with my problems of dry skin and dark circles around the eye area though, please drop a line and let me know :) I’ll do a review on it and let you know how I go.
For now though…
