Angel Eyes

It has been an absolute eternity since I did a post on an eye product of any kind, the reason is simple, fussiness. I have tried more than a few things in the past year yet none of it measured up. Skin around the eye area is pretty thin, doesn't produce much oil in comparison to the rest of the face (although someone clearly forgot to mention this fact to my eyelids). While my primary concerns are of preventative nature, I would rather fine lines stayed away for a few more years, they are making themselves known. I have been lucky enough not to suffer with bags or under eye circles on a regular basis, still finding a decent eye treatment is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. A lot of formulas seem to be just too heavy and give me milia, others have an arsenal of essential oils that make the delicate area around my eyes really itchy. So far the only products that I have liked were gels, yet when I opened the bottle of Angel Eyes* the fresh waft of cucumber had me by my heartstrings, I simply had to test it.

I was introduced to Angela Langford at the Glow Getter Gathering, she approaches her skincare line a little like cooking (not surprising for someone who featured on Master Chef), and uses the best ingredients to make targeted products. Some of these ingredients sound downright delicious: kiwi and arctic blackcurrant anyone? When presented with a choice of what to try I was very tempted to say "One of each?!" yet my skincare greediness aside, I had to go with the product that called out my name.

Angel Eyes* is an eye oil presented in a convenient roller ball bottle. The very first ingredient is cucumber oil, which is where it gets the scent from. I think it smells fantastic and fresh, but it is a strong scent and it does linger a little, to my absolute delight. You apply the oil around the eye: so just under the brow but not the eyelid, following the bone around but not straight on to the under eye area. The natural movement that comes with facial expressions will carry the oil to where it is needed, you don't want to overload this delicate area.

I find that I need the lightest touch of the roller ball to dispense the correct amount of eye oil, and it gives the loveliest cooling sensation as it first goes on. I follow this up with quick tapping of the fingers right where the oil was applied (pretend you are trying to play the piano really really fast) to help it absorb and decrease puffiness. I have been using this oil for almost two months in the mornings, admittedly not very consistently for the first month but every day after that. It looks like I barely even touched the product, that is how little of it you need. I love the way my eye area is feeling and looking, skin feels a little firmer and looks sort of brighter (which I was not expecting at all). The fine lines definitely look a lot less noticeable (if Mr RF is to be believed they are gone, but he is rarely trusted in such matters).

Ingredients: cucumis sativus oil (cucumber oil), argania spinosa kernel oil* (argan oil), rosa rubginosa seed oil* (rosehip oil), carthamus tinctorius seed oil* (safflower oil, also known as thistle), tocopherol (natural vitamin e), citrus limon peel oil* (lemon essential oil), pelargonium graveolens leaf oil* (rose geranium essential oil), cymbopogon martinii oil* (palmarosa essential oil).
From essential oils: d-limonene, linalol, citronellol, geraniol, citral, farnesol.
*These ingredients are organic at source.

Overall I have been very impressed with the quality of this eye treatment, it is so different from most things on the market and I have been more than happy with the results. I am really pleased to announce that my readers can get this baby with a 25% discount. The code you need is RAINBOW25, which is valid until 15th of February, and it it is specifically for Angel Eyes*. Angela Langford also has a very generous sample program, so will get to try other goodies with your order.

Have you tried anything from Angela Langford? Let me know in the comments.

*PR sample, all thoughts are honest and based on my personal experience with the product. Integrity is nothing to joke about, so there is no throwing fairy dust to trick people on this blog. Although if you know where I could get some of that stuff Tinkerbell uses do let me know, would love to fly,
