Come ye, come ye, and check out a new product that landed on my desk at Candy HQ – Soap & Glory’s Fill Monty (geddit?!) Dab On Instant Wrinkle Filler.
Wrinkle Filler? Like Pollyfilla?
As always the packaging is very cute:
This product is said to fill in lines that crows feet, frown lines and smile lines leave behind. Dab it on UNDER make up (so important – I did this over and I looked like a creature from a swamp).
The product comes in this little jar and the cream is a thick, dense texture.
Less is more, oh yes. Just a small amount dab dab dab (not rubbing) does leave quite an effect on the skin.
I’ve used a product called Deception by Dremu before which is the same, and although it has a lighter texture, it was a bit hard to get a definite effect from.
Timelapse was good too but not for an instant effect.
You can sort of see the texture of the cream here:See how its pretty thick? Just a small amount will do or a few light layers works well.
So I decided that the best option is to use crows feet for comparison purposes but I don’t really have any? I have fine lines under my eye though and puffiness.
To show you, I really scrunched my face up here hence the horror picture esque photo of my eye – no crows feet.
So, I had to borrow the nearest wrinkly thing and that was Mr Candy. Mr Candy has very dry skin and being a boy, he doesn’t really do that much to his skin hence, the onset of crows feet.
He has enviable lashes by the way!
Don’t bother telling me to pluck Mr C’s eyebrows. I did it once and he whinged throughout AND a hetrosexual man with clean, well shaped eyebrows is just freaky.
After – I don’t know if its clear enough in the photograph but it did make a big different to the lines – it brightens as well as filling in the crows feet. Its quite very natural.
I like how the overall effect is quite matte, so you can pretty much use it even if you are oily, a bloke, in a hot climate, a cat. Ok, maybe not a cat.
Very effective for softening lines, great if you have a big do or you need to take some photos etc. Only £8 too from Boots or Harvey Nicks so musn’t grumble. Might take a bit of practise to get the right amount on though.
