Today I'd like to share with you a product from one of my all time favourite brands, the Eyelift Age-Defying Eye Firming Gel from Medik8.  

I rarely get a decent night sleep these days, with two little toddlers. It's mostly around midnight before I hit the sheets, and I'm usually up by 6.30am, and that after usually being woken at least once, but often several times during the nigh, by in particularly the older one, the 3 year old having nightmares, or simply needing reassurance that he is not alone. So needless to say that I rarely wake up looking like a million bucks - but rather feeling tired and with huge bags under my eyes. Enter the Medik8 Eyelift.
This eye gel helps fights the major signs of ageing, including ;    
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes
  • Reduce the appearance of tired eyes, dark circles and puffiness
  • Improve skin firmness and hydrate and nourish the skin
  • Restore youthful resilience and contours
  • Boost elastin
  • Lift and smooth the skin
  • Provide immediate radiance thanks to light reflecting pigments 
The Eyelift contains among others;  
  • Matrixyl 3000® twin peptide to help increase skin firmness, stimulate elastin and hyaluronic acid.
  • Rice peptides containing complex of powerful antioxidants to help improve the microcirculation and reduce the appearance of puffiness and reduce discolouration
  • Hesperidin/Dipeptides to help reduce puffiness and bags under the eyes
  • Matrikines, which are other peptides to help reduce fine lines
  • Tetrapeptides to help to minimise inflammation, which can cause puffiness 

So in short, this Eyelift is just what my eye contour area needs. I am faced with increasing lines and wrinkles and have tired eyes with dark circles and bags.
The Eyelift has a very light gel consistency that instantly absorbs into the skin without any greasiness, so it is perfect for use under makeup during the day too, which is something I find is rare with eye creams. It has a nice cooling feeling that immediately feels soothing on the eye area. And in spite of the lightness of the gel, you can immediately see and feel that it is very moisturising, and it truly does have an immediate impact.
After using it for a while, I have noticed that it is making my eye area look less tired, and bags and circles under my eyes are clearly reduced in appearance and my eye area thus looking more refreshed, and dare I say more youthful.
The Eyelift comes in a convenient little pump bottle that makes it very easy, and also hygienic to use - and as it is very light and spreads easily, and is so concentrated too, you only need to use the tiniest bit.
My only negative about this eye cream is that the pump does make it difficult to dispense just a little and I find that a full pump will give you a tad too much, so consequently I end up using a bit more than really necessary.
