Head to head: Eye creams

The skin round your eyes is incredibly delicate. It needs to be treated with love and care.

It’s also one of the first places where the tell-tale signs of Age will show.

There are a ton of eye creams on the market that make various claims to stop the signs of ageing or get rid of dark circles and the like. I used to use one that did for dark circles (it helped but the simple fact is you can’t beat a good concealer and brightening powder) but as I’ve got older I switched to one that was more anti-ageing. I’m lucky in that my eyes are still relatively wrinkle-free, but as I’m heading rapidly downhill to forty, there are more fine lines appearing.

My regular eye cream of choice isn’t really a cream at all, it’s an ‘eye treatment’. More specifically, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment.

It’s an anti-wrinkle eye serum. It’s nice and light, which I like – some creams can be a little heavy, I’ve found – and it always makes the skin around my eyes feel really refreshed after I’ve used it.

It’s great, so why change? Because in a Glossybox, the following appeared:

Seba-Med Anti-Ageing Q10 Lifting Eye Cream.

This claims to have ‘proven’ reduction of wrinkles.

We will see!

For a month, I’m going to be using the Seba-Med and see how it compares to my Elemis favourite. I’ve not used it at all – I’ve squeezed some out onto my finger, and it’s a white, quite thick cream, so initial impressions are a bit sort of… eh. I think I’ve got used to the thin serum and switching back to a cream will be a little strange.

It smells a little odd too. Like Nivea creme – you know, the thick one in the blue tub, so beloved of everyone who spends any length of time in the cold. It smells a little like that, to my nose. My Elemis one doesn’t really smell of anything, not that I can smell anyway!

So we’ll see about the Seba-Med product after a month, but I’m not that hopeful. I am hugely biased towards Elemis products, and there’s another post this week about some Elemis stuff that I’ve only recently started using but that has made a real difference to my skin. Still, I’m always up for trying something new, so we will see how I rate the Seba-Med product.

Have any of you tried it? What did you think? Let me know!
