How can be best protect the delicate skin around our eyes in summer? I tested one option from Avon
1. Why use a separate sunscreen product for eyes and lips?
I always wear high factor sunscreen on my face but hate the way that it can ‘sting’ around the eye area when out and about, so was keen to try a product specifically for the eye area. It also is said to have anti-ageing properties, although I assessed only as a sunscreen product. The fact that it was double ended with a tinted protective gloss for lips was a bonus.
2. What it felt/smelt like?
Both the eye and lip creams have a fairly thick consistency – neither had a smell I could really detect.
3. How often and easy was it to use
Because it came in a double ended tube, Anew Eye and Lip Sunscreen was really easy to slip into my handbag , so great for reapplying throughout the day as needed.
4. Does it work?
I was pleased that I felt I was protecting the eye area without ‘stinging’. Personally I liked the lip product – although it would be good if there were a variety of shades to choose from.
5. Did it do what it said on the box?
I found it really convenient to have eye and lip product in one handy double ended tube – great to carry round when sightseeing. I hate that ‘stinging’ in your eyes you can get from normal sunsreen in really hot weather, so for it’s a great find!
8. Would I recommend to a friend and why/why not?
I would- as it is so easy to forget to put sun protection around our eyes- and normal lip glosses are not usually factor 30!
Price: RRP £13, but I have seen Avon Anew Eye and Lip Sunscreen on offer for as low as £9
