No7 Youthful Eye Serum
Whilst most people believe that all your skin needs is a good cleanser, toner and moisturiser, I believe that it needs a little more than just your average products. It needs a few serums, both manual and acidic exfoliators as well as a half decent eye cream amongst everything else in order to keep your skin happy and hydrated. Whilst I may tweak and perfect my skincare routine, I am forever changing up my eye creams looking for the perfect one to help banish my dark circles whilst hydrating the area. Despite still not finding the one, I have however found an eye serum to help target fine lines and wrinkles whilst smoothing and brighten the under eyes and just generally hydrating the eye area.. Say hello to the No7 Youthful Eye Serum!
The No7 Youthful Eye Serum (£19.50) targets key signs of ageing around the eyes with the advanced blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and soft focus spheres to instantly smooth, revitalise and brighten the skin around the eyes for a more youthful appearance. In addition, an effective fusion of vitamin A, cassava and anti-ageing peptides work day by day to visibly reduce wrinkles including crow's feet, imroving skin firmness and reduces the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
In my opinion, the No7 Youthful Eye Serum is a suit all ages kind of eye product - it is gentle enough for young skins to boost hydration yet boasts enough repairing qualities than even more maturer skin can benefit from using this. As it is a serum, it sinks in really quickly leaving behind nearly no traces of excess product, which is ideal for us heavy handed beauties who tend to over apply products! It quickly gets to work by banishing any signs of dry and puffy skin whilst prepping the skin for the next dosage of hydration coming from your current eye cream. Despite it being targeted as more of an eye serum than an eye cream, you can definitely get away with just using it as an eye cream if you prefer as it's hydrating enough without feeling too heavy on the skin. I have noticed that since I've started using this with my current eye cream, my dark circles have somewhat become less visible and the area in general just looks more hydrated than before. Whilst this may seem like an unnecessary step, I do believe that prevention is key with fine lines and wrinkles and will carry on using this will all my eye creams.
