It doesn’t come in a box, just the glass bottle itself. When you buy it, the dropper comes protected by a plastic cap:
And as a side note, this product was kindly sponsored by W2Beauty. Included in the package from W2Beauty were these 5 samples:
It’s a thin and liquidy formula. It’s not rich. It looks thick because the droplets are slow and bulgy, but once I spread it out it’s thin and wet. Not gooey at all:
It doesn’t sting or hurt, even though I apply it around my eyes. It also doesn’t feel moisturizing; it just feels like benign liquid on my face. And as such, it absorbs somewhat slowly when I apply it over moisturizer.
It’s pretty scented; I’d say a little more so than your average skincare product. It smells like a mature woman’s perfume.
My condition before: Before using this, my underye skin was dry and severely wrinkled. Sadly, I get undereye wrinkles from smiling and even just from blinking. Coupled with the fact that I hadn’t been using an eye cream (to test out Paula’s theory of no eye cream, which actually ended badly), my undereye skin became so crepey that if I so much as scratched there, a new crease would form where my nail touched.
After: After using this for 3 weeks, my undereye area looks noticeably smoother and less wrinkled:
(▲ Ignore the dark circle, just look at the wrinkles!)
Now, I still have a lot of wrinkles and fine lines (especially when I smile), but many of them are less obvious than before. The lines are not as deep and pronounced, and the ones that weren’t too deep to begin with aren’t visible anymore unless I’m smiling. (Look towards the center of my left eye photos.) It didn't cure me, but the difference is still noticeable, especially when it comes to applying makeup!
Milia: It has some potential to cause milia. It didn't cause me any new milia, but it did make my old milia a little larger (see the first photo.) However, this is likely my fault for using too much product, as I tend to get milia when I use too much. As a tip, if you're just using this under your eyes like me, you don't need a full drop! One drop gives way too much for just the undereye area. I'll dial back on how much I use and update again in a month or so about my milia ^^
I like it! I’m very grateful for how much it has lessened my undereye wrinkles. Granted, it’s not a HUGE change and I still have lots of fine lines there, but I’ll take what I can get!
Personally, I don’t see that there’s anything to lose in using this product. It’s a thin liquid, quick and easy to apply, and it doesn’t hurt or sting even near my eyes. And yet, it gives results. In my humble opinion, eyelid skin is the most important, and I’d rather be safe than sorry.
Would I buy this with my own money? Yes! Of course, I do want to check out other Syn-ake products, but if those don’t work as well, I can totally see myself buying this. :D
