About a month or so ago I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to try REN's newest eye product after joining in on a really interesting twitter chat hosted by the Thirty Plus Collective and REN Skincare. I have had some time to give the Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift a whirl so I thought I would share my thoughts on how it worked for me!
First off, the packaging is practical (with a pump dispenser, yay!) but also pretty in its simplicity. I dispense about half a pump for both eyes and tap the ultra light, gel like formula on my under eye and outwards towards my temples. My very first impression was that the consistency is really unique for an eye product. Rather than being rich and heavy feeling , the slightly luminous, almost pearlescent serum absorbs and dries extremely quickly and has a subtle tightening effect on the skin. I use it predominantly in the morning and save my thicker, more hydrating creams for my evening routine. My concealer and foundation apply well over the top and my eye area appears brighter.
I have really enjoyed using this product and look forward to seeing the longer term results. Some of the ingredients include bio actives like Phycocolloids to hydrate and plump, Hyaluronans to firm and smooth and Glycine Betaine complex to improve the eye contour.
