It felt as though it happened overnight – the day I turned 30 was the first day I noticed that my under-eye area was as dry as the Sahara. Suddenly my age was much more apparent -as if saying goodbye to my twenties took my youthful moisture along with it. Now my newly developing fine lines are more noticeable and eye cream is a religious part of my daily beauty ritual. So that’s why I jumped at the chance to try Jelessi’s new Photonix-2 Eye Wand. I’ve been praying for a solution that will keep the aging process at bay. I’m honestly thrilled to be a year older but I don’t need to show it.
The first thing I noticed about the eye wand is the brilliant packaging design. It’s so sleek and chic! I love that it’s easily portable so I can take it with me even when I travel. It also comes with a USB cable for charging which works perfect since my laptop is my permanent travel companion.
After doing some research, I learned that as we age, our skin produces less collagen, the protein that gives our skin strength and elasticity. Loss in collagen means that our skin structure is less supported, which is what can lead to wrinkles and fine lines. This is where Jelessi’s eye wand comes in. The eye wand using electromagnetic current principles to activate the cells in the skin that produce collagen. By doing this, skin can maintain its youthful structure, which means less visible signs of aging.
So how does it work? First, I put on my eye cream and put the eye wand in Magnetic Heat Lifting Mode. This activates the wand’s red-light therapy function and gently heats my skin. Then I massage my under-eye area from the outer edge of my eye to the inner corner for 2 minutes.
In addition to the Magnetic Heat Lifting Mode, the Jelessi eye wand also has a second mode called Blue Relief mode. This mode is perfect for days when I wake up with puffy eyes (like after having a good cry watching my favorite romantic comedy the night before). In this mode, the massage head feels cold to the touch which is incredibly refreshing. I have a feeling I’ll be using this mode after a night of too many glasses of wine as well.
If you haven’t run across a beauty technology device yet, you’re sure to see them in your local beauty store soon. It’s the way of the future! And believe me, the future is looking very bright. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my eyes. My skin is so much smoother and hydrated now.
