A few weeks ago I stumbled across this YouTube video from British beauty brand, 001 London. The video was an eye massage tutorial that used the brand's revolutionary beauty device, Eyecicle® (£150.00 001skincare.com). Two minutes into watching the video, I decided that I needed these Eyecicles in my life.
For those wondering, 001 London's Eyecicle is a temperature-conditioning™ beauty device that is chilled in the fridge for 30 minutes and then massaged around the eye area, using acupressure techniques on the seven pressure points. When our bodies react to cooler temperatures (below 29°C), blood vessels are activated to expand and contract, which stimulates blood flow and boosts oxygen and nutrients to our cells. So, because of the cool temperature they maintain, Eyecicles are able to combat thermal ageing, flush out toxins that build-up around our eyes and stimulate blood flow and the metabolism of skin cell growth, to keep the eye area tight, bright and smooth!
Taking the shape of a lollipop, Eyecicles are made with artisan glass techniques and their entire contact surface is rounded and smoothed with no seam.
I have been using my Eyecicles every evening for the past two weeks and I am head-over-heels in love with them. Not only have I noticed an improvement in my eye area (it is firmer, softer and brighter), using them is an absolute dream. The cooling sensation of the Eyecicles feels amazing on my skin...using them is the perfect pamper treat at the end of a long working day. They have also become my go-to gadget when my eyes get a little puffy, as they reduce swelling in a matter of minutes!
It is always best to apply an eye cream into the eye area before using Eyecicles. Any quality eye cream or gel will do - I've been using the Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Power Firm 15ml (£32.20 lookfantastic.com / $58.00 ULTA) and it works wonders.
The Eyecicles cost £150.00 for the pair. Now this is expensive, however considering their quality and the sheer number of times you would use them, I think they are definitely worth the money!
