Early last month, I was given a set of Melvita Eye Care for review, and I was very intrigued by the idea of using Avocado Oil around the eyes. Oil around the eyes, seriouslu?
The trio that works best together -you have: Cornflower floral water, avocado oil and eye contour gel. And preferably a gel eye pad like I have shown earlier 🙂
it’s also sold as a set at a promotional price of RM250.
Cornflowers are known to be soothing and softening, and it’s also very gentle for the eye. It doesn’t smell as lovely as lavender or rose, but it has a very light natural ‘corny’ scent to it.
As the first step, you can soak your cotton pads with cornflower and let it rest on your eyes for 5-10 minutes. The result is even better if you top the cold eye gel pad on top.
Here comes the surprise – As a weekly massage, you can use the avocado oil! It’s usually dark green when it’s cold-pressed.
It may not be very appealing but it has so many beauty benefits! It’s lightweight and and penetrates into skin pretty quickly. As you can see from the picture, it is so light that it is runny!
As ironic as it may seem, avocado oil is actually good for reducing blemishes and also helps to repair damage skin. It also contains anti-aging properties. I was really skeptical initially but I was surprised that it’s absorbed into my eye area in no time, and you only need a tiny drop.
If you have pumped extra (which is likely to happen as it takes a while to get the hang on controlling), you can apply it on your neck and hair too!
Last but not least, if you are not used to using oil daily, you can use this eye contour gel. It’s supposed to reduce eyebags and shadows, but I have not seen any significant result of this with frequent as I don’t have serious problems with either. Well, maybe I will have really dark eyes if I had never used any eye gel! 😉
My favorite product of the eye spa kit is actually the avocado oil, because it is so versatile! It’s an all-rounder oil – on face, on eyes, on hair, on neck, you name it! Best of all, it is so affordable it’s only RM70/50ml. You only need very little each time, it might even turn rancid before you can actually use up the bottle! So, you can be generous using it on your hair or other body parts. As for the cornflower floral water, I don’t use it for eye spa daily but I like to use it as toner too 🙂
Price: Corn Flower Floral Water – RM91/200ml
Eye Contour Gel – RM137/15ml
Avocado Beauty Oil – RM70/50ml
Now, let’s learn some simple techniques that we can easily DIY and keep the puffy eyes at bay! I have tried it a couple of times, I find the methods are quite effective to de-puff my eyes. But of course, the effect didn’t last too long before it returned again 🙁
All the below techniques can be done with Melvita avocado oil.
