Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder* || With SENSSE

If you recognise the name SENSSE, that's because I, fairly recently, reviewed another of their wonderful beauty gadgets. The Hot and Cool Facial Bar added another dimension to my daily skincare, so you can well imagine how excited I was to receive SENSSE's Eye Massager* in the mail. 

Back when I was fourteen/fifteen, I remember buying a very expensive, rollerball eye serum. It was probably by L'oreal, or similar, and promised to reduce puffiness and the appearance of bags under your eyes. Looking back on it now, I know that at fourteen years old I definitely did not have bags under my eyes. But I thought I did. How naïve was I. Now I have bags under my eyes, so I've been counting on the SENSSE Eye Massager to solve that problem.

In my review of the Hot and Cool Facial Bar, it's safe to say I was disappointed by the packaging. The external box looked as though it had been fairly battered about, and none of the packaging seemed to fit with such an expensive, high-end beauty gadget. However, with the Eye Massager, I was pleasantly surprised. Packaged in a lovely, much less battered box; the Eye Massager came stored inside a little pouch which, I thought, was a nice touch. 

My biggest complaint with the Hot and Cool Facial Bar has to be that it requires a USB connection to charge. This means I have to remember to bring the gadget downstairs with me and plug it into my laptop to charge. The charging port is also not particularly sturdy, and the slightest knock sends the Facial Bar flying off. So far, not so practical. Really, I'd have much preferred a battery operated device. And that's exactly what the Eye Massager is.

The product looks expensive, and I guess it kind of is. At £39.99* the product is a little on the pricey side. So, is it worth it? I think so. Remember me saying, before I started waffling on, that teenage me spent a lot of money on a rollerball eye serum? Well, that product probably set me back at least a tenner. And it wasn't reusable. Once the serum ran out, you'd have to spend another tenner, and so on. The beauty of the SENSSE Eye Massager is, you can use it again and again. And the only cost, besides the initial outlay, is a new AAA battery from time to time. Invest in a decent battery, Duracell or similar, and you'll find you won't have to change it that often! 

But, crucially, does it work? I've been using this product for well over a month now in my daily skincare routine, and I've definitely noticed an improvement around my eyes. What's really great about this Eye Massager is that, despite it's name, it can be used anywhere on the face. I use it around my mouth and nose, as well as all around my eyes. I don't have many wrinkles yet (I know, aren't I lucky?!) but the bags under my eyes more than make up for my lack of wrinkles. And after a month of using the Eye Massager, my bags are no more. Well, they are still there after a particularly rough night (like the night I only got five hours sleep, thanks toothache, you're a star!) But most mornings, I wake up looking younger and more refreshed than I ever feel. On the odd occasion where I've had a bad night's sleep, I use the Eye Massager in the morning to help ease the puffiness and general tired look haunting my eyes.

I think this product is a definite must-have in your beauty gadget collection. It's a worthwhile investment with long-lasting effects. I'm pretty certain this will come in more than helpful when I do start developing wrinkles! As with the SENSSE Hot and Cool Facial Bar, you can use any of your usual creams with the product. If you're looking for a salon style eye product that you can use easily in your own home, I'd highly recommend the SENSSE Eye Massager, available on Amazon
