Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream

I never considered using an eye cream until the woman performing my facial screamed. This was rather unsettling, especially since I rarely get facials and not accustomed to having my face studied so closely.  Apparently, my skin is on the dry side (to summarize the screams) and I have not been taking proper care of my under eye area.

I had no idea. 

But, I dutifully listened and left thinking I needed to start wearing eye cream yesterday.

I read some online reviews of Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream and decided to take the plunge.  Lots of users raved about this eye cream (although some found it too heavy and oily for daytime use).

I’ve been using a small dab of this eye cream every morning and night for a couple of months and love the way it feels. It’s super-rich, but does eventually absorb, leaving my arid desert under-eye area hydrated and firm. It can be a little too oily, so I make sure to cover with some pressed powder if it’s during the day. At night time, I embrace the glistening, knowing that I’m giving my delicate skin a serious overnight drink. I can tell the difference when I’m using it: the area is smoother, and dare I say it, younger-appearing. (I am skeptic #1 when it comes to claims that any product can reverse aging but I believe this could give you some temporary results.)

Even the jar is beautiful – golden, with a nice weight to it. 

I’ve found a little bit goes a long way. At my rate of consumption, I’m set to run out of my half-ounce container by the time I qualify for Medicare (which is good because it ain’t cheap). Hopefully, I’ll still look as young as I do now, minus the screams.

This Weeks Tip

You know that nice bottle of wine that you just didn’t quite finish? The one that sits in the fridge for days (ok, weeks) and stares back at you longingly every time you open the door, saying “Don’t waste me.” Well, you don’t have to waste it! Poor it into an ice cube tray and freeze it. Store the frozen cubes in a ziploc bag, then pull them out when you have a recipe that calls for wine. A standard cube is equal to 2 fluid ozs.
