I never use to use eye creams but one day, my Aunt sent me a sample size of the Shiseido eye cream as part of her beauty package in one of her balikbayan boxes. I saw a couple of YouTube beauty videos and the girls were talking about how using eye creams made a huge difference in their skin. They said that eye creams are formulated to protect skin from dehydration and dramatically minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines to promote a youthfully smooth, radiant look. No body want to look older than their age so I gave the Shiseido eye a cream a try and I loved it. For the most part I like its texture. It has a gel like consistency and it glides on smoothly on your skin. It feels refreshing and so luxurious.
They say that you should use eye cream when you hit the early twenties. I just turned 26 but I have never used creams before. So I figured now is the right time for me to start taking care of my skin. I had used up the whole sample of the Shiseido eye cream and I noticed that it did improve the texture of my skin. Applying eye cream is now an important step in my nighttime routine. I wanted to buy the full size of the Shiseido eye cream but I was amazed how expensive it was. I decided to go the drugstore route and looked for an affordable alternative. I went to Watson’s and bought the Olay Anti-aging eye cream and started using it. Compared to the Shiseido one, the Olay was good but it was not the best. It still gave my skin the moisture that it needed but the texture is not as luxurious as the Shiseido one.
