Though strictly not a beauty product review, I thought I'd include this one in case you were looking to buy a little treat for your other half/dad/uncle/any male in your life you might be buying for!
Although it's marketed on Boots' website in their Anti-Aging section, I was drawn to this product's promise to "act as an eye wake up call". Admittedly it does have a bit of spiel about fine lines and wrinkles, but I bought this product solely on the idea of for once successfully being able to drag Mr. B out of bed and into town on a Saturday without the usual 20 minute wait "for my eyes to stop hurting."
So far however, this product has not managed to do this. I'm beginning to think this eye-hurting thing is actually a ploy to have a lie in, hmmm..... However, when he wakes up at 5:30am for work every day it's the product Mr. B swears by. It's quite similar in look to 4head if you've tried it, the menthol product to stop tension headaches? I'd advise not getting these two mixed up though, I imagine 4head could sting quite a bit if applied under the eyes!
With regards to the anti-aging properties I can't really comment on this, because as I said it's not what I bought this for and Mr. B doesn't yet have any fine lines or wrinkles around his eyes. I have however just asked him whether he thinks his dark circles are better in appearance (I'm not sure he ever had any to begin with) and the answer I got was "guess so".
If, like me, you've bought pretty much everything No.7 has to offer with your voucher then why not give this a go? It gave me some extra brownie points, and for a man who never gets enthusiastic about products this one has certainly given Mr. B something to rave about! £2.50 + the possibility of hitting the shops earlier is definitely an offer too good to miss!
Did anyone else treat the man in their life with this offer? He's now becoming a little bit too interested in skincare and wants to buy more....any recommendations?
