Fake It Till You Make It; The Sleep Edition


When I choose an eye cream, I tend to skip the cream part altogether and look for a gel or serum formula. I just don't like the feel of an extra layer of cream near my eyes, preferring a soothing gel near my peepers to keep them feeling fresh and actually awake, if only temporarily ;)

I had looked at the Trilogy Age Proof CoQ10 Eye Recovery Concentrate a couple of times in the past, (anyone else window shop online an unhealthy amount??) and finally a couple of months ago I decided to take the plunge and try it out after noticing some serious dark circles thanks to a new job (and, even though I didn't know it at the time, early pregnancy!).

The Trilogy Eye Recovery Concentrate comes in a teeny little glass bottle (it is only 7.5ml's of product) with cooling metal rollerball on the top. Trilogy describes this as a 'small and mighty' product, and I would have to agree! With regular use, I feel like my eye area perked up and the deep purple bruise-like shadows under my eyes look significantly better these days! I am *yet* to suffer from fine lines and puffiness under the eyes, so I can't comment on the effectiveness of these claims, but I strongly feel prevention is better than cure when it comes to these sorts of things, so a little CoQ10 TLC for my eyes may keep any lines at bay for at-least a little bit longer? But I'll get back to you on that theory once I'm a sleep-deprived mum ;)

I have only one niggle/minor complaint and that's that the roller ball is sometimes tricky to get going, but I've found a really good shake and running it on the back of my hand helps the serum start to flow and I can then apply it to the eye area. Other than that, the serum is perfectly textured, it sinks in quickly without any tacky residue left behind and it cooperates well with makeup and any other skincare applied over the top.

The serum is priced at £26.50, which I think is very reasonable for a natural eye product with high-tech ingredients. Not everything in the Trilogy range is vegan, unfortunately, but what I have tried has always been fab. I'm currently also using their newest body oil to hopefully prevent stretch marks as much as possible, and I'm loving the gentle, fragrance-free formula! It's really been helping with any tight, stretchy feelings and itchiness!

Have you tried anything from Trilogy?
