This time of year almost all of us begin to feel a little burnt out, with so much to do and so little time to do it. Maybe we have partied a little too hard, spent most of the weekend Christmas shopping, or have been nursing a bad cold, it all takes its toll and leaves our skin needing a boost.
One of places where this fatigue really shows up is around the eyes, with tell-tale dark circles and dehydration lines desperately calling for a soothing, hydrating product to erase them and the Embryolisse Radiant Eye Stick I recently tested really ticks this box, leaving eyes feeling comfortable and looking bright.
Known in French as Secret de Maquilleurs, which translates as ‘make-up artist’s secret’, the Embryolisse Radiant Eye Stick (RRP £20.50)* is a gel stick that soothes and moisturises the delicate under eye area in one quick swipe. The texture is pleasantly cooling, helping to decongest the tissue and reduce any puffiness in an instant. The gel stick also smoothes away and disguises fine lines leaving the skin perfectly primed for makeup. Application is so easy, you just apply the product straight from the stick and you can even pop it over eye makeup. I usually to use my ring finger to then gently massage it in, although if you’re in a rush there’s no need to rub it in.
The Radiant Eyes stick is a really handy format and size for popping in your handbag for application during the day, so if you know that by mid afternoon your eyes will be looking tired or feeling dry it’s great for perking them up. I think the stick will be fantastic in the summer too when hayfever causes eyes to feel itch and look puffy. As I hayfever sufferer I will definitely be keeping this product close to hand during the summer months to refresh and revive my eyes when they start to feel gritty and dry.
Embryolisse had already put French skincare firmly on the radar here in the UK with their best-selling Lait-Crème Concentré, and this product is equally impressive. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who suffers from dark circles, puffiness or dry skin around the eyes. You can find the Embryolisse Radiant Eye Stick in Boots stores and online at Feel Unique and Cult Beauty.
