Send Them Bags A Packin’

Good Riddance

A hand carrying a bunch of colorful shopping bagsBags, where in the world would we be without them? I mean you got your handbags, tote bags, gym bags, overnight bags, computer bags, cosmetic bags, garbage bags, lunch bags, sleeping bags, camera bags, tool bags, garment bags, freezer bags, money bags, sandbags, and shopping bags, just to name a few.

Yes, the beauty of bags, are not to be underestimated. They are marvelous tools that help to keep order in an otherwise chaotic world in which we live.

I’m sure I wouldn’t be alone in stating that there are bags though that we could do without… [drumroll please] under eye bags!!! I got ‘em, hate ‘em and want nothing more than to be rid of ‘em.

So I was delighted when I was walking through the living room and heard on the TV something about erasing puffiness and shadows under the eye. I stopped in my tracks to take notice of the woman demonstrating how to use this miracle cream.

Disclaimer: Typically when I hear a “too good to be true” type deal I dismiss it out of hand. What caught my attention, in addition to the demonstrator, was the fact that this product has the Good Housekeeping seal of approval.

I quickly grabbed my digital recorder (because it’s safe to say that if I didn’t I wouldn’t be writing this post) so that when the opportunity presented itself I could do a little research. Thank goodness I recorded a note to self on the product because for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it or the name of the demonstrator. And yes, an extensive Google search returned a number of results but none of them was the clip I sought.

A proven safe product that I could apply topically suited my tastes because surgery, injections or other invasive procedures are out of the question. In reading a number of product reviews and reviewing scads of videos in search of the one that grabbed my attention from the TV, most of the information was overwhelmingly positive so I decided to give it a try.

When using Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Eye Cream twice daily (morning and evening) over a 12 week period, one can expect to see diminished shadows and puffiness under the eyes. I’ve been tracking my progress by taking selfies each day. Even if I can get minimal results anything would be better than the sacks that I currently have.

Directions for using the eye cream are simple:

  • Beginning with a cleansed face, squeeze a drop of eye cream on the tip of your finger.
  • Using the middle finger of your other hand, dip it in the cream, from your finger tip.
  • Gently pat (don’t rub) the cream under and over the eye until it is absorbed into the skin.
  • Repeat on the other eye.

The Skin Store has this to say: “Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Eye Cream is a daily treatment for the eye area that is clinically shown to visibly reduce under eye circles and puffiness within just 12 weeks of use. The formula contains glycerin to draw moisture from the air and pull it into the skin as well as shea butter, which fills in the spaces between skin cells to soften and condition the eye area.”

Though I’m not going to pretend to understand the science on how the eye cream works, unlike many other brands I do like that there has been very stringent testing on all the Boots No7 products. While it’s too early for me to know the effectiveness of using my eye cream I will continue to take pictures throughout this 12 week period and hopefully I’ll achieve a good outcome.
