I love a good eye mask. My eye area is the place that I am most self conscious about so I am always on the look out for products that can really improve the appearance and quality of that delicate skin. Yesterday evening I tested out the Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist 24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Masks (what a mouthful!) with rather impressive results.
Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Masks Review
I have a single sample, but one box of Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Eye Masks contains 12 packets. You rip open the packet and apply to patches beneath the eyes like this:
They are quite wet and the stretchy fabric allows them to hold vast amounts of Retinol essence for optimum contact to the skin. They feel instantly hydrating on the eye area. You leave them on for 15 minutes and they tingle lightly, but I have to say, I do like to feel something.
These Shiseido Benefiance Eye Masks have been formulated to instantly tackle wrinkles, dryness and dark circles and promise a smoother, brighter, plumper and refreshed eye are after just one express application.
In the eye masks, Retinol is broken down into tiny molecules that can quickly penetrate the skin’s surface.
Mukurossi Extract inhibits the activity of wrinkle-starting enzyme, heperanase, to repair and smooth existing wrinkles
Chlorella Extract suppresses the formation of wrinkle-inducing blood vessels, to resist future wrinkles
Gambir Extract stops elastin breakdown in the skin’s dermis to keep skin plump
Super Bio-Hyaluronic Acid N: An advanced form of Hyaluronic Acid that reinforces skin from within
Hydroxyproline promotes the production of collagen
After 15 minutes you remove the masks, pat any left over product into the skin, and then apply eye cream. here’s a picture straight after I removed the masks and before eye cream. I think my eye area looks amazing!!
Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Masks Review – After
I really wish I had taken a before photo because I think the improvement is so impressive! I also wish I had saved them for a special occasion because I feel I kind of wasted this lovely result on a Sunday night sat in front of my lap top! I think I need to get my hands on more of these. Particularly as they are apparently very effective for use on lines around the mouth, which I can totally imagine.
I’d say the Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Masks (breathe!) were pre-party essentials and a makeup artist’s best friend! I am definitely planning to pick up more. They are available now for £59 for a box of 12 from House of Fraser and John Lewis.
They work out about £5 which personally, I am pretty happy with.
