I had a feeling I was going to like Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift by Ren as I’m already a fan of its sister product, Instant Firming Beauty Shot, which came out last year. The latter product is for the face and gives skin an immediate injection of hydration and an instant tightening effect while also firming skin over the long term.
The Beauty Shot Eye Lift has a similar benefits but has been adapted for the eye area. I know that there’s an on going beauty debate about whether a separate eye product is necessary but I’ve always been in the yes camp on this one. The skin around the eyes is thinner than anywhere else on the body and has different needs, just as the skin on the sole of feet is thicker than anywhere else on the body and therefore has different needs.
Beauty Shot Eye Lift has a light serum/gel consistency but it doesn’t half pack a punch. As soon as I apply it I get a cooling zingy sensation that makes my eyes feel more awake. This, in turn, has the psychological effect of making me feel more awake generally. Beauty Shot Eye Lift can be used in the morning, obviously, but it can also be used throughout the day on top of makeup. As someone who sits in front of the screen A LOT this pep up is very welcome.
Other products that I’ve used before that have a similar tightening effect ball up as soon as I’ve put makeup on top rendering them useless in my book. I’ve been using Beauty Shot Eye Lift for the past few weeks and I haven’t had this problem once. Another immediately visible benefit is the light reflective pigments that brighten dark under eye shadows.
The ingredients Beauty Shot Eye Lift share with Instant Firming Beauty Shot are Hyaluronan 1 for the instant smoothing effect, Hyaluronan 2 which firms over time and Phycocolloids which are derived from seaweed and enhances the hydrating benefits of the Hyaluronans.
What’s unique to Beauty Shot Eye Lift is Glycine Betaine Complex which is infused into Tuberose Active Shells. The Tuberose Active Shells act as a delivery system that help the actives penetrate into the skin. The results are that the eye contour area is redensified as the Glycine Betaine Complex strengthens the gel-like matrix that surround the cells in the skin. It also helps reduce inflammation and increase microcirculation to improve puffiness and dark circles.
