As title.

I have a feeling it's all too good to be true. There are some shocking reviews out there! But also some good ones.

I desperately want to get rid of my bags!

I've a similar question as I've just started using Balance Syn-ake eye cream.
Some good reviews, some bad reviews.
I did try and start a thread but had no joy.
I'd love to see my dark bags vanish.
Maybe we should both use our products and compare notes in 4 weeks. grin

Oh I share your bags! Just started using the Caffeine solution from The Ordinary and seriously impressed after a week! Not spendy, very high tech. Worth considering...

Ilovespringandchocolate Mon 24-Apr-17 14:33:54

Ohh, never heard of that Broken. Has it reduced your bags then?

It's a high tech, quite new brand that is getting hugely positive reviews for its efficiency.

I am using their basic regimen with a couple of serums and the Caffeine eye serum, and my skin and eyes feel so much tighter.

A few weeks ago I had that double bag thing going on, and I'm down to just one bag now and not nearly as dark!

Cant be sure if it's the Caffeine on its own or in combo with the serums but I'm properly impressed, and I've used every eye cream out there.

Is that actually £5.80 for 30ml? Or is it some hidden price?

Brokenbutbreathing Mon 24-Apr-17 21:35:46

Yup, that's the actual price. And so far I'd say it's more effective than almost anything else I've ever used (certainly more effective than anything sub £50).

If you google the brand there are lots of reviews and the back story about why it was created and why it is so cheap, one example here:

Just realised I sound slightly evangelical about this stuff, I honestly don't work for them, but am blown away by results!

I don't have bags as such but I have crinkly skin and wrinkles. Will that stuff help me, Broken?

<keeps everything crossed>

Actually, how donI actually BUY the stuff in bucket loads because I can only find the review page.

I had no idea where to start, so went with what they suggest for age:

http://theordinary.com/regimenguide

I am following the top one and my skin looks so much better already!

Example regimen for general signs of age: 
AM: Buffet, Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5; PM: Buffet, Advanced Retinoid 2%, 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

Example regimen for pigmentation issues:
AM: Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Solution 10%; PM: Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA, Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% or Advanced Retinoid 2%

Example regimen for dehydration: 
AM: Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA; PM: Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

I didn't see the guides but I've ordred the eye caffeine stuff, hyalurolic acid 2% +B5 (which says is a serum so presume I apply after sun cream!) and also the natural moisturising factors +B5. Hopefully I've got the right stuff for me, it's all very confusing confused I got mine from beauty bay which was free delivery over £15 smile

Kez0777 Tue 25-Apr-17 06:55:30

I'm no wondering if o should have gone for the age stuff 🤔 I do have dry skin though so hopefully it will help
