Has anyone tried the new REN 'miracle' eye shot thing?

The one that Sali Hughes raved about recently. Does it live up to the hype?

A dilemma whether to shell out £30 on something which may turn out to be utter hype-over-substance <looking at you Clarins bloody double serum>

It sounds like a kind of execution

Eye shot grin

I have had their beauty shot for face and loved it, but don't want to spend that kind of £££

Ha ha yes. I could do with a blast of something around my eyes though, the sag is starting [sob]

I'm happy to pay if it works.

Watching with great interest because all the beauty bloggers are raving!

You could try aloe vera bio active gel, I find it works wonders and only £2.

what does it do? apparently piles cream is v effective for puffiness

odfod ooh tell more please!

I've always heard that about pile cream too, but strangely haven't quite fancied smearing anusol around my eyes grin

bialy Aloe Vera is exellent for dehydrating the skin, it is very gentle and is used in lots of eye gels. I use it as a good all over face moisturiser, this is an item also for the medicine cupboard for minor burns. It can be found in after sun skin care as it is very cooling and soothing also for insect bites and grazes.

It is inexpensive, Holland and Barrett sell it for £2.99, chemists and supermarkets also. Sellers such as 'for ever living' etc mark it up and claim that you will regenerate back to childhood skin, which is bollocks, but it is a good natural skin care product.

That Sali Hughes blog post about it also features a post in comments by her to say that another product is every bit as good as good as the Ren one, it's just a bit more expensive. I have tried the other product, as it was utter rubbish. Really, really bad.

If all the bloggers are raving about it, you can be guaranteed that Ren (owned by Unilever) have been paying for that coverage...so it's likely over priced, over hyped rubbish...

There's a whole load of stuff about how blogs are paid for over on this thread

not blog post, guardian article!

Thing is, I am not a great believer in skin care products in general, but ReN beauty shot serum really did make my skin look better instantly.

So tempted to try the eye one...

Thanks odfod - I agree aloe vera is pretty soothing, though not sure if my eyes could take it neat, they're quite sensitive.

baby lots of reviews of the face serum seem to say it brings people out in spots - that's what the Clarins 'miracle' double serum did to me, as my skin is quite normal but tends towards oily. How about you try the eye one and report back grin
