Can You Actually Get an Instant Eyelift?
By Kelly Stoddard |
We're always on the hunt for the latest in beauty innovation but sometimes we come across products and treatments that seem to good to be true. When we heard that Contours Rx launched a product that could give you an "instant eyelift" without any surgery or needles, we were a little skeptical (and really excited), so we had to try it.
Lids by Design is medical grade tape that works as a correcting strip to lift loose sagging skin on your eye lid. If used properly, it hides the excess skin in the natural fold of your lid and instantly lifts the eye, which makes you look younger. It is hypoallergenic, latex free and can be worn under makeup. You can see lots of before and afters on the brand's site but we really wanted to see for ourselves and asked three women of different ages to try it and get back to us with their experiences.
Woman 1, age 35: "I don't feel that I have sagging eyes yet but it runs in my family, so I might as well start looking for solutions now. I thought the product was relatively easy to use, although I put the strip too low on my first try. Once on, I kind of forgot that they were there. It wasn't until my husband said that I 'looked different' at the end of the day that I remembered—I must usually look tired! I am not sure I need this product yet but I would recommend it."
Woman 2, age 58: "I have hooded eyes and have my whole life. I've contemplated getting surgery before but it's not something I am ready for just yet. My concern before trying this product was that it wouldn't work for me or it would feel weird but I was wrong. I saw a difference right away. My only complaint is that it started to 'fade' midday. I think that was because I didn't read the instructions and put my moisturizer on my face before applying the strips. I have sensitive skin and it didn't irritate me at all. I am going to use these."
Woman 3, age 41: "I don't have sagging eyes but I do have puffy eyes when I wake up and by the end of the day. I had a hard time finding the right spot for me but once I did they really worked. People kept asking me all day if I had gotten a haircut or a facial—I had no idea it would make such a difference. It's probably not something I will use everyday or on the weekends but when I have an important meeting or need to look fresh, I am definitely going to use them. I can't believe it actually worked and stayed in place all day!"
