I've been using these new skincare bits from Indeed Labs for a few weeks now so, I wanted to update you and let you know what I think. Indeed Labs is a brand that really came to the fore with their wonder serum Hydraluron and, since then, they've been churning out release after release that are quite scientifically grounded. I recently picked up the eye cream Eysilix and the Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Sheet Masks as part of a recent Boots 3-for-2 and, for the most part, have been loving them.
Eysilix is a hydrating, soothing eye cream that, over time, is said to work on the appearance of dark circles, crows feet and fine lines. As with all of these products that promise to effectively give you new skin, I take these claims with a grain of salt. However, Eysilix also promises to lift the eye area and reduce puffiness and signs of fatigue and it most definitely does do that.
The formula is a milky gel-cream hybrid that is instantly cooling and refreshing once applied. Almost instantly you can feel the eye area tightening and becoming firmer and smoother to the touch. Visibly, I find that I look a lot more awake and bright eyed after applying the eye cream and that any redness or puffiness around the eyes, especially the lower lid, is less apparent.
As a follow-up to the incredibly popular Hydraluron serum, the Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Masks are a set of 4 sheet masks that are soaked in the Hydraluron formula. The idea is to give skin a shot of hydration in 15 minutes. Before I say why I like these, I first want to note how badly executed they are. The masks are absolutely ginormous. I do understand that people have different sized faces but, these are made for giants, not people! That being said, these babies do wonders for tired, dehydrated skin by giving it a gorgeous healthy, plump appearance. The masks are also very generously drenched in Hydraluron so, if you squeeze each one out after you use it, you get enough to further rub into your skin and bring down onto your neck and chest which is nice as a treatment.
As with all Indeed Labs products, these two are very expensive - almost €30 apiece for 15ml of eye cream and 4 sheet masks. There is no doubting the science behind the brand and that is reflected in the quality and effectiveness of the products. That being said, La Roche-Posay is another example of a brand that is very much rooted in science and it is a lot cheaper across the board with a lot more quantity in their products. I like the sheet masks a lot, and I think the eye cream works, but I don't envisage myself running out to repurchase them once they are gone.
