Road Test 

In my personal experience over the years, eye creams, treatments and balms tend to promise much, but not really deliver anything accompanied with a “wow” factory. However, this new product from Medik8, Illuminating Eye Balm, bucks this trend with an impressive lineup of good reasons to buy. Admittedly it is on the expensive side, but this luxury balm, which promises to brighten and hydrate the eye area, while also helping to minimise the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and general tiredness, does actually work, and it leaves the entire eye area looking instantly more awake and refreshed. That’s not only good news for travellers, especially anyone who travels long haul regularly, but anyone who works hard and has the occasional late night. Key ingredients in the balm include cucumber extract and red algae extract, both of which can help to reduce puffiness, along with deeply moisturising and skin smoothing glycerin and hyaluronic acid. The balm has also been cleverly formulated with light-reflecting mineral pigments which suit all skin tones and brighten the under-eye area instantly while also softening the appearance of dark circle. I used this product for a week and fell in love instantly with its immediate brightening effect as well as how it made my under eye area look and feel super hydrated all day long without any fading or flaking. To use, after cleansing and moisturising, and under makeup if desired, apply a little of the Illuminating Eye Balm around the eye area using your fingertip, patting gently and avoiding your eyelids. Medik8 Illuminating Eye Balm is a terrific product for travellers, ideal for everyday lightweight and natural coverage, blending seamlessly into skin, and delivering an instant boost and well as working to protect and improve your skin longterm. And what’s not to love about that?

    Hyaluronic acid rocks although it doesn't do anything for wrinkles.
