This £5 anti-wrinkle eye gel has hundreds of five star reviews

Eyes are said to be the windows to the soul – so it’s not surprising that many of us spent hundreds of pounds each years trying to smooth, lighten and brighten their frame. But when it comes to product to use around your eyes, there are some budget brands that do the job just as well, as the review of this little jar seem to prove.

Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle Eye Renewal Gel has hundreds of rave reviews from happy purchasers who say that it’s made a huge improvement to their skin. In fact, on the Boots website – where it usually retails for £9.99, but it currently on offer for just £4.99 – the gel has been awarded almost 400 five-star accolades.

The product is a lightweight, fast-absorbing formula that promises to minimise fine lines, intensively hydrate and reenergise skin and diminish the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, all for a very reasonable price tag, and those who already own a pot say that it really does the trick.

‘Such a great product that does as it says and at a reasonable price,’ wrote one commenter. ‘I have used much more expensive but this is as good. Light and absorbs well.’

‘As good if not better than my usual and very expensive eye serum,’ another agreed. ‘I use it at night after cleansing and again in the morning before applying my makeup. After only 2 weeks the area around my eyes looks brighter and the wrinkles (laughter lines!) look softer and less visible. Part of my daily maintenance routine now.’

As well as being a great skincare all-rounder, other fans of Olay’s gel say that it makes a great primer for your eye make-up, so if you pick up a pot and find you love it too, it might even end up replacing other products that you’d usually fork out for on top.

It’s also noted by several reviewers that a little goes a long way, so it won’t break the bank to stick with Olay for the long-haul. With all of that plus its current price reduction, we reckon it’s the perfect time to give it a trial run…
