I have issues with my eyes. No matter what I do with makeup (and I have a lot of tricks) I never quite manage to get rid of the dark circles and hollows right under my eyes. I am forever looking for that magic product that will take them away, but I never seem to find it.
Here is the rub: I’m pretty sure that nothing short of some plastic surgery is going to fix it completely, but I will keep trying! Reviva labs offered to send me the Collagen-Fibre Eye Pad Kit to see if it would help any of my issues. I’ve decided that I can’t really tell anymore, so I’ve put together a little picture essay. Here is my bare face before the undereye treatment:
I had been awake for a few hours, but not all day. All my allergy meds were current!
Wearing the patch. You take a dry patch and put it underneath your eye, then you take a damp cotton ball or pad and pat it (seriously, pat it – don’t try and saturate the thing, or you will have a drippy mess) to dampen the pad. Then you let it sit for about 20 minutes. I think the idea is to go relax somewhere, but I went and read the day’s blogs, which is pretty darn relaxing.
So, here is the after effect. I personally couldn’t tell a difference, could you? It felt great, though, and I still have several pads left that I’ll use up. Look for a followup if anything changes.
