Skincare products, you just can’t slather on a generous amount and expect miracles the next day. They need to be massaged with love and care into your skin, which at the same time, encourage blood circulation which will then lead to easy absorption and produce faster, obvious results.
There are several facial massage techniques for reference but how many of us have the time and discipline to carry them out everyday?
• La Mer Acupressure Massage • La Prairie Pressure Point Massage
• Clarins Application Method; Auto-Lifting Method • Eve Lom 7-Step Massage
Skin Inc “Eyes Love It” Optimiser is the answer – a convenient device that aids deeper penetration of active ingredients with its ionized function.
The ion-and-vibrating massager activates upon contact with serum on the skin, and creases when the product is fully absorbed. The probe charges negative ions, and converts them into positive ions to increase the permeability of the serums.
Besides the eyes, this handy device can also be used on crevices such as your laugh lines, to target fine lines and wrinkles.
I use it after applying my eye and face serums, Day and Night. Each session varies, depending on the nature of the products. An eye serum could take roughly 10 minutes for full absorption whereas cream requires 15-20 minutes. Oddly, it takes a longer duration when used on my laugh lines.
I did observe a slight improvement on my dark circles after using the device together with Radical Skincare Eye Revive Crème after a week, but not much of a difference on my laugh lines. It’s probably due to the serum I’m using that’s targeted for hydrating rather than addressing lines.
The “Eyes Love It” Optimiser runs with an AAA battery, and retails at an affordable price of S$94. Another sensible purchase of the year!
