Ole Henriksen is one of those brands that I’m fairly certain I would be addicted to if I wasn’t on a strict regime for another company, as all his products not only sound amazing, but they’re beautifully formulated with some cutting edge ideas, and nothing encompasses these elements more than the Truth is in the Eyes Eye Peel*.
I’ve always thought that the beauty market was crying out for a product that would effectively yet gently rejuvenate the eye area (Olay made an attempt at this a few years back, but their efforts weren’t great), as since it’s an area that quickly starts to show signs of wear and tear, surely it would make sense that it would benefit from some very gentle peeling. Ole’s Eye Peel fills that gap perfectly and does all these things and more.
It’s an eye treatment that you apply before your moisturiser; you apply it to the outer orbital which works on the main areas that show lines, i.e. the crows feet. You need the teeniest, tiniest amount which you tap in and leave to dry, before applying your usual eye cream.
Not the most helpful image, but this should give you an idea of the consistency; this is enough for one eye.
I was using this last night when I realised I hadn’t actually reviewed it on here and thought this was something that should be rectified immediately as it’s a product I will most definitely repurchase, although I’m limiting using it to only my “facial days” which equates to three to four times a week. You can use it daily and when I purchase the larger size I will definitely move up to daily treatments. It’s just brilliant at smoothing the area and I can definitely tell the days where I’ve used it the night before as it really does make a difference. Tread really carefully during application as you DO NOT want to get this in your eyes, but other than that it’s just wonderful; it slotted straight into my skincare routine and will no doubt remain there for quite some time. It’s available now from Feel Unique for £39.
