Yes to... Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel

Cucumbers are packed with vitamins A and C and have been captured in this light and smooth gel for the eye area. I found it to be refreshing and cooling especially as this is the start of hayfever season for so many people. As it's a gel it is also great for gentle tightening of the eye area without pulling or discomfort, so if you're eyes are puffy and could do with a lift then this might be for you.

Initially I was put off trying this cream as I have a pathological hatred of all things cucumber! I went to a natural products show and the lovely Yes to people were there so let me sniff them! Just as with the Yes to Tomatoes, I was pleasantly surprised that it doesn't really smell of cucumbers after all, bonus!

I often get asked about eye creams and are they really effective. My answer is that you need to major skin care items from any age, there is no cure only a way to slow down the march of wrinkles. A good sunscreen and an eye cream. Everything else is a bonus. In your 20s and 30s I suggest opting for a gel as it isn't as heavy as a full on eye cream. They are easily absorbed but offer more moisture without greasiness. It's a matter of trial and error in deciding on your perfect formula. Be careful just to use it sparingly, less is definitely more with eye creams, too much and you'll be puffy in the morning, or your concealer will crack and slip.

I tend to use an eye cream at night and during the day if my eyes are feeling sore or puffy.

What do you use around your eyes and how many have you tried before finding your perfect one?
