Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask

The Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Resist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask ($17.50 - $63; is a concentrated mask that claims to reduce the appearance of  fine lines, wrinkles and smoothen the under eye area, leaving it more fresh & bright. The mask claims to do all of this in less than 15 minutes and retain moisture for up to 24 hours. *Press Sample

Its quite an easy mask that is great for travel too - comes as a smaller, three pack, perfect for trial and a 12 pack if you decide to make it a part of your regular skincare routine. The pads are quite easy to use and fit the contour of the under eye area well. Each single use pack comes with a pair of very saturated eye masks that feel cool upon contact with skin. Shiseido recommends leaving it on for about 15 minutes and then to gently pat the excess solution onto the under eye area. Its quite a sticky serum-like essence that does take a while to completely absorb, so I'd definitely recommend this only in the night. As for it smoothing wrinkles, fine lines and dark circles dramatically, I din't see much of a difference with those, but my eye area did look quite well-rested, less tired and definitely very moisturized. Its a quick fix for someone with a drier under eye area, or for anyone who needs a moisture boost, but also something that needs to be used on a regular basis to keep the effect going. I also had a bit of a tingling sensation soon after using this, which lasted quite a while, so if you have sensitive skin, definitely try the smaller size before investing in a full size pack of these.
