Hi all!

After reviewing a very good product that is so waterproof –> HERE, we need a cleanser that can clean it up in a jiffy and gentle to the eyes, here’s come Sens’Eyes from Make Up For Ever.

As seen the product works like magic. It make the Aqua Shadow disappears in thin air ^0^

Details from makeupforever.com

SENS’EYES is a mineral oil-free gel that removes make-up from eyes and lips and is extremely effective and incredibly gentle. It doesn’t leave the eyelids feeling greasy.
It instantly removes impurities, even waterproof make-up on the most sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

The blue cream is thick and that’s why the original product is in pump since it make it far more easier. Pump it on a cotton pad and using fingers try to make the blue cream goes into the cotton so when you press it on to your eyes, there’s no leftovers cream that can go into your eyes through the close lids.

Now gently let the moisten cotton pad touches your eyelids, mascara, and so on and let it sit for a while before wiping it off. And all of those makeup will stick to the cotton, leaving the skin clean and without any leftovers. No grease, oils or anything like other cleanser do, well at least most of them do.

I use contact lens on daily basis and usually some cleansing oils made the lens blur and some sting the eyes. Sens’Eyes works really well without the sting nor oiliness. Perfect!

TALIKA Eye Decompress

Hi all pretty readers!

How are you? I hope you don’t have any migraine like the one I have right now X.X bummer!

Due to lack of sleep and relaxing, (any company wants to sponsor a trip for me?) I kinda feel stressed lately and need a rejuvenation. Holiday season is not here yet, so I decided to do a mini relaxation at home.

Yes, I’m using TALIKA eye decompress.

Here some details from talika.com:

Eye Decompress
9 x (3 ml / 0.1 fl.oz.) – 9 treatments per pack
Talika Eye Decompress refreshes, soothes, relieves congestion and revitalizes tired looking eye contour.
Are your eyes :
– puffy in the morning?
– irritated – red?
– feeling de-hydrated?
Talika Eye Decompress refreshes, soothes, relieves congestion and revitalizes tired eyes.
How to apply ?
Place the pastille into the capsule containing the blue solution.
The pastille immediately absorbs the solution and transforms itself into an eye mask.
Open out the mask and apply it on the eyes for a few minutes.
Other benefits :
1 – efficient
2 – easy to use
3 – travel friendly

How to use it is detailed on the back of the packaging

Let’s start by open mine ^__^

Mine is individually wrapped

While you can get yours in a set

Open the lid start with the one near the pastille. It’s the dried eye mask.

Then both, careful not to spill the blue fragrant liquid. Yes, the smell is just so lovely, flowery, relaxing and beautiful

Then, just put the pastille into the blue liquid, in a matter of seconds it absorb all the liquid.

Here’s mine

Carefully unwrapped the mask and put it on your clean naked skin. I don’t recommend using any eye cream before this mask for better absorption and since some products might not goes along well together.

I take a 10 minutes break while resting on my bed. It was really something that I need. Comforting, soothing, cooling and the smell is so lovely, haven’t I said it much?!

Now it’s the result. First of all too bad I can’t take a picture of how soft and smooth my eye’s zone right now. I can certainly touch it. The area below my eyes get the most of it, they become so soft and I know I shouldn’t do this but I can’t stop touching it.

A 10 minutes rest with this mask really rejuvenate the eyes and I can’t say much for the puffy thingy (take note the light is from above and creating a darker shade for the lower part of my eyes) but it still look fresher, brighter, and definitely happier.

Will I use it again?

Definitely!

For the gorgeous smell, freshness, and softness of my eyes.

Seems so impressive, let’s prove it!
The packaging is cyan blue as always and I really like any pump device for beauty product since it is a lot more hygienic than pot, tube or normal bottle. I took like 2 pumps on a cotton sheet, sorry for the mess haha! The color is delightful and the texture is a bit gooey.
The Before pic (left)
I use a waterproof and stay on eyeliner, mascara on my brows and even thou’ I’ve taken off the fake lashes, the glues are still there (I really don’t like these glue, they are tricky alright). Some foundation and powder are there in the eye zone as well.
So I took the cotton that already moisten by TALIKA Lash Conditioning Cleanser, put in on top of my closed eye lids and let them sit for a while. Some of the gooey cleanser did get into my eyes, I feel a bit sting and thinking it would be a problem. So NOT! In less than a minute my eyes are comfortable again, unlike other makeup remover that really uncomfortable for the eyes. TALIKA Lash Conditioning Lash Cleanser is made for the eye’s zone.
Then I gently swipe them and voila! It’s cleaned everything it touches. Those nasty glue are taken off without a fuss, so does mascara, waterproof and stay on eye liners.
See the cotton sheet, it;s all there.

Will I keep using it?

With the result this good and not irritating my eyes, definitely will!

My review:

This product is in the range of Imortelle and if you love the series you’ll definitely continues with the eye regime as well, the texture is light and more like a gel than a balm. I find them easy to absorb and unlike other eye care which can be heavy, oily and bothers me, Imortelle eye balm feels lighter, just don’t put ’em too close to the eye opening.

There is a mild scent that feels natural and they do put so much care in the product for the eyes, so I believe the it’s not scented with perfume. The one thing thing that the balm do first is giving the moisture and soothing cooling sensation to the area, I think I’ll like it more if the product in a better container like a roll on, I’ll find it much more hygienic and convenient that way. But I guess we just have to settle with what it is.

Will I keep using the product? Sure, it helps freshen’ up my eyes in a jiffy and suitable for night and day use as well.

My review:

Honestly, I’m never a fan of any eye cream, just either too lazy or just dislike the feeling of a cream there near my eyes. But looking at the mirror and close up pictures, I’ve noticed there are some lines there and I’m not happy with that. The whole face look young, while the puff and fine lines drag my years. So I decided to use the eye cream every night (heehee, still refuse to do it on day time) plus applied ’em a bit on my lips too.

Genifique Yeux is one of the anti aging range by Lancome that focus on the eyes which is delicate and have a thinner skin than the rest. I will use the product for the whole 7 days and gives you all my further review. First time use review: the cream is thick and yellowish, have a strong sharp scents that when you use a bit, you’ll hardly noticed it, but you’ll definitely feel the warming sensation it does on the eye’s zone. Which also gone in like a minute or so.

I must say I feel pretty much comfortable using Genifique Yeux and will continue using them, meanwhile I will keep reminding my self to take care my own eyes by stop abusing with enough sleep, relax my eyes often, less scratching and reduce unnecessary touching plus be gentler too.

ESTÉE LAUDER
INTRODUCES
NEW IDEALIST COOLING EYE ILLUMINATOR
First to Market Specially-Contoured, Cooling Ceramic Tip Applicator, Innovative Optics and Targeted Technologies
Dramatically Reduce the Appearance of Dark Circles and Puffiness
Dark circles and puffiness not only detract from the beauty of the eyes, but can also result in an overall aged and fatigued appearance among all ethnicities. Both dark circles and puffiness are influenced by many factors, including genetics, environment, and lifestyle, and can vary from individual to individual, even day to day. Estée Lauder Research has now identified three key sources which can lead to visible dark circles and puffiness around the eye: Lack of Micro-circulation/ Weak Capillary Structure, Hyperpigmentation and Irritation. To address the visible effects of these factors, Estée Lauder scientists have developed New Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator, a targeted treatment for all ethnicities that delivers dramatic brightening and de-puffing results.
Utilizing a first ever patent-pending specially-contoured, cooling ceramic-tip applicator, New Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator instantly cools, massages and re-energizes the look of tired, puffy eyes, while innovative, exclusive Triple-Optic Technology instantly makes dark circles look lighter. Brighter, more rested-looking eyes are revealed immediately.  Additionally, an exclusive, highly concentrated Dark Circle Correcting Complex works over time to help reduce and prevent the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Offered in two shades suitable for all skintones, now women of all ethnicities can achieve their ideal eyes.
First to Market Contoured Ceramic Tip Applicator:
A cosmetic industry first, Estée Lauder’s patent-pending specially-contoured, cooling ceramic tip applicator gently massages the eye area to help cool eyes instantly. An innovative alternative to storing eye creme in the refrigerator, this specially contoured tip delivers a cool, refreshing sensation as it helps re-energize the look of tired, puffy eyes.
Instantly:
Innovative Triple-Optic Technology comprised of a unique “next generation” optical blend instantly makes dark circles appear lighter. Going beyond traditional “cover-up,” the advanced optics provide a seamless, natural look on every skintone.
           Soft focus optics smooth the appearance of eye-area skin’s surface to blur the look of imperfections and      shadows.
           Color-correcting optics help neutralize the look of discoloration for more natural-looking, even skintone around the      eye.
           Brightening optics increase surface reflectance to provide skin around the eye with a naturally brighter, more             illuminated look.
Over Time:
Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator features a powerful Dark Circle Correcting Complex that works over time to address dark circles and puffiness, dramatically reducing their appearance.  Dark circles and puffiness are caused by three key sources:
           Lack of Micro-circulation/ Weak Capillary Structure – Both lack of micro-circulation and weak capillary    structure can             cause a “pooling” of blood in the micro-capillaries around the eye, contributing to puffiness and a bluish-purple tint.
            NEW Lauryl-PCA and Magnolia Extract work together with massage application using the cooling ceramic tip             applicator to help optimize natural micro-circulation and reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness. 
           
           Hyperpigmentation – Excess pigmentation can create a yellow/brown tone and an overall darker appearance around the eye.
           
Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C) and Botanical Extracts work together to help reduce the appearance of darkness.
           Irritation – Irritation can create uneven skintone and puffiness around the eye.
Soothing Extracts of Sea Algae, Caffeine and Sucrose work in combination to help minimize the look of visible irritation and puffiness.
Results:
           Instantly, eyes look brighter.
           In just 2 weeks, 90% of women saw a reduction in the look of dark circles and puffiness.
           Over 8 weeks, the look of dark circles and puffiness is clinically proven to continue to be reduced.
Usage/ Texture:
Squeeze tube to release a dot sized amount and massage cool ceramic tip under the eye from the inner corner to the outer corner, two or more times. Gently pat into skin with fingertips until absorbed. Wipe off ceramic tip with tissue after use.
The smooth, whipped texture glides over the delicate eye area, leaving it feeling comfortably hydrated and ultra-smooth.  Use alone or under concealer. 
NEW Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator arrives at Estée Lauder counters nationwide, on Oktober 2011. Offered in Light/Medium shade.

and beside the Press Release the Estee Lauder Indonesia (Mr. Erfan) also kind enough to send me the Q&A with Dr. Pernodet that I think will definitely be a useful information for you, your eyes, the product and tips:


ESTÉE LAUDER

NEW IDEALIST COOLING EYE ILLUMINATOR

Q&A with Dr. Nadine Pernodet, Ph.D.

Executive Director of Skin Biology, Research & Development

The Estée Lauder Companies

            INSIGHTS

1.         Why are women so concerned with dark circles and puffiness?

           

            Dark circles and puffiness around the eyes is a global concern that affects women all around the      world, and they

            both contribute to an aged appearance and a fatigued look. Eyes are the first thing people see when they look at

            you, so all women desire brighter, more beautiful looking eyes. Just as we believe that ultimate beauty begins with

            beautiful skin, the canvas for creating beautiful eyes begins with eyes that look fresh, bright and rested.

2.         What causes dark circles and puffiness around the eye?

Both dark circles and puffiness can be influenced by many factors, including genetics, allergies, the environment, and lifestyle, such as lack of sleep or smoking. Because there are so many different contributing factors, Estée Lauder Research has focused on the three key underlying causes: Lack of Micro-circulation/ Weak Capillary Structure, Hyperpigmentation and Irritation.

                        Lack of Micro-circulation/ Weak Capillary Structure – Both lack of micro-circulation and weak capillary structure can cause a “pooling” of blood in the micro-capillaries around the eye, contributing to puffiness and a bluish-purple tint.

                        Hyperpigmentation – Excess pigmentation can create a yellow/brown tone and an overall darker appearance around the eye.

                        Irritation – Irritation can create uneven skin tone and puffiness around the eye.

3.         Can you tell us more about the study conducted to identify the three key sources of dark circles and puffiness?

             

A ‘Spectral Imaging’ study was undertaken around the world to analyze the major contributors to the apparition of dark circles and puffiness around the eye. With Spectral Imaging, we are able to read very specifically different parameters in the skin, such as melanin, blood and oxygen saturation. Lack of Micro-circulation/ Weak Capillary Structure, Hyperpigmentation and Irritation were identified to be the main contributors to dark circles and puffiness.

            INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGIES

4.         Can you tell us more about the Cooling Ceramic Tip Applicator?

Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator features a first to market patent-pending specially-contoured, cooling ceramic-tip applicator. It is made of ceramic to achieve a cooling effect, and offers a great high-tech alternative to storing your eye creme in the refrigerator!

Our cooling ceramic tip applicator was inspired by ceramic’s amazing ability to absorb heat. We discovered that tiles composed of an advanced ceramic are a critical component of a space shuttle’s thermal protection system. This system insulates each ship and crew from temperatures as high as 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit as the orbiter returns to Earth at speeds in excess of 17,000 miles an hour!

5.         How does the Cooling Ceramic Tip Applicator work to de-puff eyes?

On contact, the specially contoured slanted tip delivers a cool, refreshing sensation. Gently massaging the cooling tip under the eyes helps fatigued, puffy-looking eyes instantly feel refreshed.

6.         Can you explain how Lauryl-PCA works with massage?

Lauryl-PCA, also known as Lauryl Pyroglutamate, works together with the massage of the cooling ceramic tip          applicator to help stimulate natural micro-circulation in skin and reduce visible under-eye puffiness. By encouraging skin’s own natural micro-circulation, we are helping to decrease the look of blood that remains in the eye area and contributes to a blue under-eye color, which we see as a dark circle. This helps reduce the appearance of the dark circles.

PRODUCT

7.         Who should use this product?  

           

Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator is for women of all ethnicities concerned with dark circles and puffiness around the eye, and are seeking both immediate and long-term benefits. Women of all ages and skintones interested in        achieving their most beautiful, brightest, youthful-looking eyes should be using this product.

8.         How long will it take to see results?

Our exclusive Triple-Optic Technology instantly makes dark circles appear lighter and the cooling ceramic tip applicator immediately revitalizes eyes. Our exclusive, highly concentrated Dark Circle Correcting Complex works over time to help reduce and prevent the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. 

                        Results:

           Instantly, eyes look brighter.

           In just 2 weeks, 90% of women saw a reduction in the look of dark circles and puffiness.

           Over 8 weeks, the look of dark circles and puffiness is clinically proven to continue to be reduced.

9.         Why are you so excited about this product?

We spent over four years carefully developing this product to specifically target dark circles and puffiness around the eye, a major concern for women around the globe and one of the most challenging concerns to correct. We’re so excited to introduce Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator because we never dreamed it would bring such extraordinary results for women of all ethnicities. Dark circles appear lighter immediately. It is amazing to see the how remarkably radiant and refreshed the eyes look upon the very first application! Over time, dark circles and puffiness appear dramatically reduced.

We are also thrilled to be the very first cosmetics company to introduce this new patent-pending specially-contoured, cooling ceramic-tip applicator. The refreshing sensation it provides feels incredible on the skin, and it helps reduce the look of puffiness around the eye.

10.        How do I use this product?

           

            Squeeze the tube to release a dot sized amount and massage cool ceramic tip under the eye from the inner corner   to the outer corner, two or more times. Gently pat into skin with fingertips until absorbed. Wipe off ceramic tip with tissue after use.

11.        Can I still wear concealer if I use this product?

            The smooth, whipped texture leaves the eye area feeling comfortably hydrated and ultra-smooth, and provides a great base if you choose to wear concealer over it.

12.        How do I keep the applicator clean?

            We recommend that you wipe the applicator with a tissue between uses to keep it clean.

13.        How does this product fit in with the rest of the eye products offered by Estée Lauder?

            We have a range of targeted eye solutions to address eye area concerns, including lines and wrinkles,firming,

            and hydration. This is our only product that is specifically targeted to dramatically reduce dark circles and    puffiness around the eye.

Details from Kiehls.com (btw you should check out their website, you can also read the reviews from those whose been using Kiehl’s for years):
The anti-wrinkle solution for eyes from the deep.

•Gentle formula helps deter the effects of aging on the skin.
•Provides instant moisturization and diminishes the look of fatigue.
•Survival molecules help soothe and protect against external aggression.
•Ophthalmologist and Dermatologist-Tested.
Cool Kiehl’s Fact: The Abyssine 657 “survival molecule” is a polysaccharide found in the depths of the ocean. The ingredient is derived from microorganisms discovered near the Galapagos hydrothermal vents in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 3,000 meters where the algae is able to adapt itself to the harshest conditions.

My review:

First of all you have yo know I’m not a big fan of eye cream (it’s all about the texture), but Kiehl’s Abyssine Eye Cream + has officialy entered my okay zone and if it’s come from me it’s tough just to be in okay zone. I have rejected so many brands and type. So when it comes to eye cream, I want the lightest, the safest, but in the same time multiple effect in one go. I just don’t like my eye lids / under eyes to be oily, creamy and it sweats you know?! I don’t like my eye parts to be slippery. I use soft lenses on my eyes and I want the zone near my eye balls clean, and when an eye cream so damn difficult to absorb it will be sticky and sticky means dust and dirt trapped there. Hate it to the max (such a strong words, but I have my reasons).

A lot of eye creams I used, you can ask me numerous brand and most of them I’ve tried. I’ve done minimum review on eye creams to (just so you know) since I’m not really into bad reviews too. So a lot of products that haven’t made their way here, probably not in my fave list or I just dislike it until I don’t know what I have to say in a post (haha, -__- I’m so mean today), so if it is in my blog usually I either approved the product or resent it so much and in the mood to vent (bummer!).

And Kiehl’s Abyssine Eye Cream + is one of the products of eye cream that I’ve approved (hooray). The light white lotion texture is scentless and you just need a bit of it, put it on your ring fingers, mix it there (everything clean okay, clean hands, clean eyes zone) and gently spread it on your eye bags and lids too, all around the eyes and if you don’t put too much they will absorb quite fast. It pretty much nothing to feel, no allergy reaction, sticky, annoyed or anything and it takes time if you want an obvious result eliminating your lines. The good news is the product is gentle for eyes area and comfortable enough to be used daily (again come from me, these words are massive!). You’ll probably love this product too. For me I didn’t feel any soothing effect or instant relieve, but when I look in the mirror, my eyes zone seems fresher like I just woke up after a great nap.

Okay, I did just get up from a great nap, but still the eye cream is still wonderful for me ^_^

I’ve been in live with their mask, you can read it —> HERE
I’m not really a fan of their moisturizer Belle De Jour but they still have other range that are lighter and easier to absorb. So even thou’ I’m not really in to eye care, since I hate them for sticky or a bit oily, or simply since I use soft lenses and I touch my eyes occasionally. But I love Angel Eyes. The smell is sensational, light, feminine and fresh at the same time. The problem with my eyes is it can be puffy and sometime get darker when I’m lack of sleep, so Angel Eyes help smooth the area and looks brighter. Love the texture, fragrance and result.

Check out their website and found out more.

>Softlense Oh Softlense

>Hi all,

I’ve been wanting to have this post for a long time, finally after much considerations I did it now. There have been so many soft lenses out there I can’t hardly keep up, so instead of going up and down through many brands and type I choose soft lenses and only from reputable companies. I don’t do lenses from online shopping, cheapos, nor what-itz-called one.

My friend have use hard lenses too and it’s just weird, I know some says they are more safe to use (I do not know the reason, can’t anyone tell me?) but for me the adaptation takes too long and so many things to get them ready. So that’s why I prefer Soft lenses.

For more than 10 years I’ve invested my money on soft lenses, yes, they don’t grow, so it’s pretty much a spending instead of investment. I’ve used permanent soft lenses that last a year (but never quiet a year, like around 9 months I’ve done with it for being uncomfortable, the risk of infection, endless sanitizing, removing proteins with tablets, aosepts, fresh saline, etc, it’s just too much homework. So I went to monthly lenses from CIBA. But since I need soft lenses all day long like more than 12 hours a day, it didn’t do a good job, around the 8th hour it started to dry up and I’m blur, really blur. So I’ve done with it.


Now from the picture above, there’s all mine right now. I’m not a collector, I like to mix and match, for me it’s not just a necessity, but I like things my own way, and it seems my eyes does to. And do you notice the Lomo on my pics, I’m using a new app on my iPhone and it’s cool, so yes! All pictures here belongs to me. Ask permission before using them okie dokie.

First thing I’m going to discuss is 1 day Acuvue Moist that I recently bought. I’m not going to give you the spec, you can easily done that on their website, so this post is completely all about experience. It is very moist, like you are literally swimming, warning! It might took you a while to adjust, for me there some kind of mild feeling of looking through a fish eye lens (like on camera), yes something like that. But beside those awkward fish tank feeling the lenses itself is very comfortable. You wouldn’t notice anything there. It is very moist I have to give you a tips during removing the lens, it is slippery and on some days, I found it difficult to take it out. Inserting in? For me is very easy and smooth.

Perfect for travelers that don’t have time to continually putting on the moisture drops, in dry climate, busy, and just want some comfort and security that your eyes feels good for 12 hours….and more for me.

Acuvue 2, is a 2-weekly basis that is perfect for me. I like the lenses where it’s not so slippery yet not dry like Acuvue Clear, it’s not like having a fish eyes, I got my perfect vision there (how many times should I say perfect), no glare, no dryness, no sensitivity, and it stay for more than 10 hours. I use soft lenses like every single day, I hate glasses, I just do, they gives me a headache from the astigmatism, frames (come one, I can only see things inside that square), my nose is not on the right proportion for glasses, and I can continue for hours…so just skip it.

Fresh Look Handling Tint is perfect for beginner who doesn’t know where is the inside and where is the outside…side of the lenses. Yes, it is different. You can see from the edge of the lenses. This monthly basis lenses is comfortable…for most people, but since I have bigger pupil or eye lens or whichever correct, the FL letters (that help beginners know which side it is) bothers me and give me a bit blur, I have to rotate it until it’s in the perfect spot, but wherever it is (up down left right) it’s still gives me a blur on that part. Also that’s why I don’t do color soft lenses. The cloudiness wont go away…ever.

My husband use this soft lenses and happy with them, I doesn’t bother him at all, they are perfect for long wear more than 8 hours, doesn’t dries his eyes, easy to use….after a while (adjustment period for beginners).

When I have money to splurge I go for Lasik…. heehee but before that I’ll buy CIBA Dailies which I think is the best dailies for me. Simple, practical, easy to use, they stay moist and hygienic, no over the top feeling like fish eyes, suitable for more than 12 hours indoor or outdoors….so it’s all just about the budget for this one.

Like most daily soft lenses the companies made it easy to open the casing, I know it’s a waste of casing, but for our eyes it’s is more hygienic. About that please always wash hands with proper soap before handling these lenses, eyes are very delicate and important, don’t ever clean them in tap water or any other liquid beside those solutions that made for them. In hospital on daily basis patient come in for eye problem and cornea surgery, all because of contact lenses. So be diligent and cleanliness is highly encourages by me.

Acuvue Clear. It’s really dry, I’m using it right now for 2 and a half hours and I feel miserable. If you are really on budget and probably have time to keep on using moisture drops and only for 5 hours maximum, then go ahead. But I warned you for the feeling of something thin inserted in between your eye and eyelid, yes, I can feel it and I’m not happy with it. This monthly basis soft lenses has rumored that in some advance country, it is not on the shelve anymore (they don’t sell it there).

So that’s just about it for now, tell me, what is your favorite soft lenses and why?
