In this day and age ...

****************gimme a minute here , will ya ***********************

LOL ! Gosh - Professor Dan-age.
I had a professor once who started every class, every story, every session with the words - in this dan age ( day and age). So much that, those are the only words I remember from his classes.

*************Here I go again *****************************

So, in this day and age lucky are those who don't sit in front of a computer all day long drying their eyes out. Putting our eyes through maximum stress day in and night out. Also all that squinting you do when you are really concentrating along with dry eyes - hello early wrinkles !

The Dry Machine

I don't know if it was all the computer-ing or the fact that it was a cold cold winter or a deadly combo of the two but the skin around my eyes were parched. Especially the area at the sides of my nose / inner eye corner - supreme dryness. So much that I refrained from any eye makeup for the longest time . I wasn't doing any eye elated thingy for the blog either - how could I with the grotesque concealer settling onto my dry skin.

Project Combat The Dry Machine

After my Biore eye cream didn't do much to rescue me , I discovered Kenzo Belle De Jour Angel Eyes. The first time I tried it - I knew it was gonna be a hit. Angel eyes is suppose to have reduced the stress inducing hormone cortisol by 13 % in a single use among the test group. Now 13 % was a claim I was ready to believe as oppose to some mascara companies - 200 % more volume stories.

In a week of using this velvety cream every night, my dryness cleared out. And the knowledge about the cortisol made me feel calmer like my stress was really draining out. Its got a very mild relaxing scent of white lotus flower.

Its A Luxury Of Sorts

That being said it is an indulgence, a luxury even at $70 - 0.5oz. For comparison the popular Clinique Repairware Intensive Eye Cream is priced at almost $40 - 0.5 oz.

Since starting out on eye creams a few years back , I've tried more than I'd care to count. But this one stands out - its the best I've tried yet. If you are heavy on cash and are looking to make yourself a lil more happy - look in the direction of the Kenzo wall at Sephora. You wont regret it. I wake up feeling thoroughly hydrated and replenished ; ready to combat another day in front of the dry machine called computer.

What is your favorite eye cream ? Do you have one you highly recommend ?

Just like you, I've tried many. And contrary to the claims, most of them end up making eyes puffy after overnight use (it's not just me, my friends have noticed the same thing). And then you are supposed to invest in de-puffing gels and rollers etc, sigh! I even blew my $$$ on Bremmen's eye cream which claims to be the ultimate cure for dark circles, except that it is NOT! The only cream that moisturizes really well and still doesn't puff my eyes up is The Body Shop's Vitamin E Eye Cream. Been using it day and night and it really seems to be working out well. Haven't tried Kenzo yet..

I say beware of anything that says it will change levels of a hormone in your body that is not FDA approved.
