Mama Mio, the brand known for its range of body care products for use during and after pregnancy brought out a skincare range this year. I'd been very pleased with their products I used during and after pregnancy so the skincare interested me.
I bought the Eye Know moisturising serum (£27.50 for 15ml). Each product comes with a Little Book of Confidence (contains product information, how to do Face Fitness and the brands philosophy) they include 60-second exercises for your facial muscles ( "30 seconds of High Brows brow lifting exercise for a wide-awake look and 30 seconds of Lost Baggage micro muscle lift to smooth under-eyes"), its a nice little addition and not something I have seen before.
I have to confess I did the exercises for the first 2 weeks but alas I am not a disciplined person so didn't carry on with the routine so bear this in mind with my review of the products performance.
This product makes a lot of claims, it proposes to provide "24 hour moisturising hydration,be a wrinkle-fighting whilst banishing dark shadows and gently tightening and lifting for a wide-eyed and wide-awake effect. Packed with peptides, grape stem cell technology, antioxidants and triple action EyePro 3X, it’s what every girl needs to look like you’ve had 8 hours sleep … but in 60 seconds!"
Very big claims indeed, so how did it perform?
It has a light weight gel consistency, clear in colour, I don't detect a scent.
The site lists reasons for why they love it, these are the reasons why I don't:
• Does not provide enough moisture, after a few weeks use my eye area felt much dryer, lines more apparent, skin looked a bit sore.
• Made no difference to puffiness, gave no lifting effect.
• wasn't a good base for eye concealer as it was prone to ball up and flack off.
The only thing I did like about it was that it felt slightly cooling. I had high hopes for this and I really like the detail given to the presentation of the product and do like the ethos of the brand but I have to concede that I felt this product was actually making my eye area look worse than it did before which is why after using it for nearly two months I have given up on it.
