I was so excited when I learned what the prizes for the June Reviva Labs giveaway were going to be but little did I know that my favorite product of the two would switch. Reviva Labs has generously agreed to send the winner of this giveaway a package of Collagen Fibre Eye Pads w/Myoxinol and also Willard Water Anti-Irritant Gel. I’m a huge fan of the Collagen Fibre Eye Pads so it thrilled me that Beauty Info Zone would get to share a package with one of our “fans”. But then I had the opportunity to not just test Willard Water but put it to use and I fell in love.
Willard Water Anti-Irritant Gelis a thick clear bubbly gel that contains Aloe Vera. It is to be used in so many ways including on scrapes, burns, sunburn, and moisturizer. Willard Water was invented by Dr. John Willard and uses a catalyst altered water that creates an anti-oxidant that soothes burns and irritations caused by rashes, shaving, the sun, etc. This catalyst altered water was combined with Aloe Vera to create this fragrance free gel.
As readers might know, I have a little grandson. We recently bought him a blow up pool and we were so excited to play with him in it that I totally forgot to put sunscreen on myself. I bought him a shirt that protects to SPF 50, I slathered him with sunscreen, we made sure the water was a comfortable temperature and we bought some toys for him to play in the pool. But I went outside wearing a short sleeve shirt and my hair up and totally neglected my own sun care. Since I’m not an outdoor person and I have very fair skin, I burnt. Not terribly but enough to be uncomfortable. That’s when Willard Water Anti-Irritant Gel went from being a nice product that I’d used already on a cut and used several times as a light nighttime moisturizer, to being a savior. I slathered it on my face and neck where I could already feel the tightness and felt relief right away. I used it several times that night and the next day and had no tell tale redness or burns. It felt terrific – very cooling and refreshing. I’m so happy that I have this goodie for my family and myself. If I see some redness on my little guy when we come in from play I can use this on his skin safely too. It’s great for after shaving too – whether it’s under your arms or on your partner’s beard.
The Collagen Fibre Eye Pads contain Myoxinol which is an extract from the Hibiscus flower. The set you’ll receive is considered the refill kit and contains 3 pair of the undereye pads. The magic factor in these pads is the Myoxinol which is a natural ingredient that behaves like Botox. What I do with this is to moisten the skin under my eyes with water and apply the dry pad. Then I take a cotton pad that’s saturated with water and pat it over the pad to make it adhere to my face. It becomes like a gel under your eyes but then starts to harden and shrink down. After about 15 -20 minutes when it’s totally dry I peel it off and apply a light layer of either eye cream or my Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Night Gel.
What makes these pads stand out from the rest are #1 the price (this kit sells for $21) and #2 you can use it before going out for a special occasion. You don’t have to wait to look refreshed. It instantly rejuvenates you making your lines diminished. It’s also recommended for dark circles but I think the effect is better for removing puffiness and lines.
(Not in this giveaway but really wonderful is the original kit that contains 4 of the eye pads along with Skin Energizing Gel ($38). The Energizing Gel replaces the water and adds in the benefit of Hawaiian seaweed extract. The gel will last longer than the kit so you’ll be able to use it with future refills.)
