C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment Review

I’ve been using C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment for a few weeks now in place of DERMADoctor Wrinkle Revenge and I’m kinda digging on it.

Click after the jump for some first impressions and a bit of a review!

Few fun facts about my eyes…

I have a few fine lines, dark circles nothing dramatic but they are there if I don’t get proper rest, plus some puffiness. Mainly I’ve been looking for an eye cream for ages to rid myself of puffiness that’s one of my great concerns as I tend to wake up puffy. I’ve tried all the normal tips and tricks to get the puffiness down but to no avail, still puffy.

One of the interesting things about C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment that captured my interest was the fact that it contained 3% Eyeliss. Eyeliss is supposedly a miracle worker for puffy eyes. Not many eye creams contain Eyeliss at least none of the ones I’ve been privy too and believe me I’ve tried alot lately. Strangely enough Eyeliss is sometimes found in concealers. I know Lorac is guilty of putting a bit of Eyeliss in their concealer as is Tarte which I think it’s rather fab as what better way to battle the puff than with concealer right? So indeed Eyeliss being an active ingredient in this sold me on it. Honestly, if Eyeliss was not listed I’d have skipped as I’m a bit of a snob and rather splurge on higher end eye creams in the hopes that the most buck will get me the biggest bang of results.

Not surprising that up until now I really don’t see too much of a difference in my eye area but that’s no fault of the cream as I’ve purchased eye creams that are $80 bucks and rarely see any results. Puffiness is still there, fine lines are a tiny bit blurred but not erased by any means, and dark circles still firmly around when I’m caught running on 5 hours of sleep.

The good news is the cream is inexpensive and does a fairly good job of moisturizing my dry under eye area without causing milia. Richer creams have been known to create a milia problem for me but thankfully I’ve seen none of that with this. It’s a very basic eye cream that moisturizes but offers little else. I could also be jumping the gun here as I’ve only used it a few weeks so I may need to wait a little longer to see any long term results. I’m one for instant gratification and want to see visible results with one application but that’s a tad unfair.

Overall, C.O. Bigelow Triple Task Eye Treatment works nicely enough offering moisture where it’s needed but not much else…so far anyway. I’ll revisit this in a few weeks and update you on the process but I suspect not much will change. Honestly, it’s not all bad at all and quite a good moisturizing eye cream for it’s price tag which I can definitely appreciate.

Have you tried this?

Want It: Thierry Mugler Cooling Effect Concealer

I’ve been meaning to pick up Thierry Mugler Cooling Effect Concealer for a while now why I haven’t indulged yet is beyond me as it sounds just the ticket for my under eyes!

Jump ahead to hear more about it!

With a $45 price tag this isn’t the cheapest concealer around but I’ve heard such incredible things about it my lemming is strong to say the least. With a cooling effect this concealer conceals under eyes circles with a moisturizing formula and a light blue color. I’ve actually waxed poetry prior to this about how blue does very well at eliminating darker circles and shadows. Count me curious on this. Wants it, Needs it, Why haven’t I picked it up yet?

Must go gets me some soon!

Anyone try?

Pieces of Life: The Woe of Comments Edition

Hey lovies!

Just a quick note in the comments section of life. I’ve been a bit remiss and behind on comments lately. I posted through a zillion yesterday but lost track who I did or didn’t answer. I’m really sorry about that. My head is everywhere sometimes and thus the accident of comments occurred so I’m left unsure who I have and haven’t replied to!

If it was something important feel free to repost is to remind me where you originally posted it. Just know I’m not intentionally not replying or answering I’ve just been swamped and busy as all hell!

Love ya all!
the Muse
