Last year during allergy season, I noticed puffiness under my eyes. This is definitely orange alert for me!! In a frenzy I went on Sephora and Amazon, bought all the top-rated eye products that claimed to reduce puffiness. However, after applying at least 10 of these creams, gels, imitation cucumber pads on my eyes, I saw no improvement in my situation. Not only that, my eyes started hurting or feeling itchy all the time. In fact, on my flight to Floria last winter, I had so much pain in my eyes that I couldn’t even read a book or look at the TV screen in front of me. I looked around me – all these other people seem to have no problems whatsoever with their eyes. Just when I was ready to cry over how unfair life is, a thought miraculously popped into my head. Maybe it’s the random eye products I’m using that’re giving me all this grief. What if I DON’T use anything?!
During that whole vacation, I applied nothing to my eye area. Only a face moisturizer on my cheeks, that’s it! Not sure exactly at which moment my eyes stopped bothering me, I just seemed to remember less and less about the itchiness or the tearing up problem as if they never occurred. In the pictures that I took for myself, the puffiness was gone.
Lesson learned. This year I’m not spending money on anything. Well, not until I saw Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System. If I ever have the under eye puffiness again, this could come handy, right? All the reviews are raving about it. And it looks super cute! I bought it over Thanksgiving and tried it on my face. During the first two days I pressed the device against my face so hard that I almost crushed my orbital bone. Now I just let it dance lightly under my eye area. Actually once you turn it on, it seems to have a life of its own. It’s been a week and a half, I’m still not sure if it’s actually doing anything to my delicate under eye skin. There’re days that I looked better than my baseline and I marveled, ” This thing really works!” And there’re other days I see no difference. If anyone of you has used this device, please tell me your experience! I still have 80 days to go before the money back guarantee runs out
