Simple eye products

I bought these 2 Simple eye products a few weeks ago and I've FINALLY found the time to tell you about them! I got them (along with the Spotless Skin facial wash) on 3 for the price of 2 at Boots. Bargain-tastic!
The first product is the Simple Kind to Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll On. Unless you've been living in a cave for the past 18 months, you will have noticed the hype surrounding the new concept of an 'eye roll on' to alleviate puffy eyes and reduce eye bags. I think it was Garnier that first came up with the concept, however I was anxious to avoid putting anything too chemical-y on my delicate eye area, so I was over the moon when Simple announced they were bringing out their own version!

I really like this product. I'm not sure how 'necessary' it is, in terms of daily skincare, but it makes me feel good - like I'm doing something positive for my poor little eyes that I inundate with make up every morning! The roll on is metal which feels nice and cold against your skin, and the product itself is a thin sort of watery substance, which is easily absorbed by your face. I roll it on in tiny circles all the way around my eye and up towards my eyebrow too. I use it after my moisturiser but before make up every morning, and I feel that it makes a difference to my eyes. Not sure whether its noticeable but I like the cooling sensation, especially after a hot Spring/Summer night!

Price-wise, it's a bit steep at £4.99 but if you can get it in combination with an offer then I'd recommend it! Linky!
The second Simple eye product I bought was the now infamous Eye Make Up Corrector Pen. I'm pretty sure most drugstores sold out of this product when it was first released, it was so eagerly anticipated! I waited for the hype to calm down and bought mine recently, only testing it the other day when I made a mistake with my eyeshadow! Briefly, the concept is a product with a pen-like nib that you can use to easily and quickly wipe away/get rid of any mistakes you make with your eye make up. A brilliant idea, and it actually works!

I'm impressed with this, but don't use it half as much as I imagined I would. It's a great little pen to stash in your make up bag for 'just in case's, and as long as you have a face wipe handy to clean it with after use, its very versatile and ideal for using on the go.

Again a bit expensive for my budget at £4.99, but I think its worth the price for a make up bag staple you'll end up using again and again. Linky!

  1. Definitely need to try the corrector pen! I'm one of those people that always get mascara on my eyelids or I blink and get it half way down my face!!! Thanks x
