Sample Sunday

Evening all!  I almost forgot about my Sample Sunday project, but I remembered in the nick of time - so here it is: Nivea Visage Radiance Boosting Eye Cream.

This promises to brighten and refine and give your eye a natural-looking and even radiance.  It also contains UVA/UVB filters.

I must admit that I don't always use an eye cream.  I often don't use makeup remover, so I just wash my face and use a normal moisturiser.  However, if I do use makeup remover, I usually use the Temple Spa eye cream, as I have loads of it from all my Mum's cruises.  As I've been thinking more about aging, I've started to use it more often.

The sample size is quite generous, and I should get a good few uses from it, especially as little is needed.  It absorbed quite easily and didn't sting at all, something I find can happen with eye creams.  My eye area feels very soft and moisturised now, so it seems to be working!  I can't really tell if it looks more radiant or brightened and refined, especially after just one use, but I usually think that this is just blurb anyway.  So this is one I'd definitely pick up if I saw it on offer and needed and eye cream.

I know that I'm supposed to be trialling the Murad anti-aging serum and eye cream at the moment.  However, I used it a couple of times (and I'm loving it by the way), and realised I hadn't taken any 'before' pictures to show how it works.  So I've stopped using it for a few days so my skin can get back to its natural state and will start again shortly to give it a proper trial.  I'll let you know how I get on!

Thanks for reading!  xx

I have got the nivea Q10 eye cream which I think is very good, I find eyecreams a bit difficult really, too thick and the skin drags and I am a bit puffy the morning after, too thin and there is not enough of moisturising effect. Good way to try though with a sample. Thanks for the post. Jan

I've definitely had that puffy eye look with some eye creams, but this one has been OK. I'm going to try it out again tonight, as there's lots in the sample! x
