Let me be totally honest here: I love skincare gadgets that exist solely as solutions to things that weren’t really a problem in the first place.
The Skin Inc Eyes Love It Optimizer falls directly into this category: it’s a gently vibrating pressure-sensitive wand thingie that helps you… uh, apply eye cream. I’ve been using it to apply my Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm – which is fantastic, by the way – and it certainly, er, helps to apply it. You know. Smear it around, buzz it into my skin, feel vaguely futuristic and wholesome for finally remembering to apply my eye moisturiser.
Ok, it’s nothing that a gentle tapping with one’s ring finger can’t achieve, but I never claimed to be all that sensible. After all, I really do love a skincare gadget, even if it exists only as a solution to an extremely first world problem.
Is it more effective than using your ring finger like a common caveman? I have no idea, but at just under a crisp hundo RRP I’d definitely hope so. For what I paid – about AUD$17 after finding it on a flash sale with some gift cards – I feel like I’m at least getting my novelty value from it.
