The Battle of the Eye Creams Continues…

Do you beautiful people remember my cautious and reluctantly complimentary post, A Balancing Act? If not, feel free to refresh your memory; follow the link, have a skim through and pop back when you’re done.

Up to speed now?

Okay, so since then I’ve been trying the RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Anti-Age Eye Cream. This was not one of the cheapest options at £22.99, but I’d heard miraculous things from a variety of seemingly trustworthy and knowledgable sources.
For those who don’t know I have inherited my Mum’s under eye shadows (that’s the polite way of saying bloody enormous bags) and have been casually trying pretty much everything I can get my paws on over the years to cover them up with make up or, more recently, to attempt to get rid of them all together. I think it was a foreign beauty magazine article I read on the plane coming back from Singapore last year that mentioned RoC Multi Correxion. I remember excitedly waking up my not-so excited boyfriend to show him the article. It said that using a great deal of clever science this particular cream would work to lighten the shading on a few different levels. For example by thickening the papery thin skin under your eyes ever so slightly so it’s less see through, and also by making those blood vessels slightly smaller and therefore not so prominent. I wasn’t 100% convinced those things were even possible but it was more than enough persuasion to propel me to Boots to grab a tube.

I’ve now been using it for 4 months and have noticed no difference. Gutted.

I’m sure I need not tell you how much I’d love to be reporting a different story. That it worked and was worth it’s weight in gold. Sadly I’m not going to be able to do that.
And, to add insult to injury, over the last few nights I’ve started using the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream again and have already noticed that the poor skin under my eyes feels tighter and lovelier again. Oh dear RoC, how embarrassing.

So I think I’ll be going back to using my Wonder Eye Cream. It smells considerably nicer than the Multi Correxion and the packaging is much cuter. It’s also a fraction of the price.

    I’m so glad you posted this. I’m on the hunt for a decent eye cream. I’m the wrong side of 25 now (shhh don’t tell anyone) and my Mom recommended I get was as she and I had started to notice laugh lines and shadows. 🙁 I don’t like this getting old thing.. hopefully Balance Me can help me out!

      I’m with you there, my 25th was what prompted the beauty side of this blog. We’ll need someone to invent a miracle product soon!
