As Seen on TV products have a sketchy reputation—they’re often written off as cheap gimmicks that don’t work. But recently, a commercial for a new product caught our eye, making us wonder if some As Seen on TV products have potential. Salon Shoppe™ Dream Look™ Instant Eye Lift is a non-invasive product that promises to lift, shape, and rejuvenate the entire eye area. Essentially, this product is supposed to mimic the results of eyelid surgery via a tiny sticker.
Wait, a sticker that you wear on your eye? It’s not as far-fetched as it seems. Asian markets have been selling temporary eye stickers for years. The strips of clear tape give the Asian monolid the appearance of a crease. Dream Look Instant Eye Lift is the first mainstream eye sticker product marketed toward Western clientele. Rather than create a crease, the Dream Look Instant Eye Lift is designed to give the eye area a youthful lift. Hooded eyes will be opened up, sagging lids will be lifted, and tired eyes will look more awake. Moreover, the shape of the eye that can be muddled by age will be more defined. Salon Shoppe claims that using Dream Look Instant Eye Lift can take years off your appearance.
Dream Look Instant Eye Lift is a clear strip of tape that’s slightly curved to mimic the contour of the eye. Once applied, it should be invisible. The tape itself is made from a medical grade petroleum jelly, so it shouldn’t cause any eye irritation. Each Dream Look Instant Eye Lift is made for one time use. No glue is necessary. They can be used with or without makeup for an enhanced look.
Ideally, Dream Look Instant Eye Lift will provide the temporary lift and aesthetic improvement of eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. Many people who’ve reviewed Dream Look Instant Eye Lift have found that the tape is visible, even when worn under makeup. The appearance of wearing tape on one’s eyes is strange and a bit embarrassing. Others have found that the tape becomes unstuck throughout the day, or doesn’t fit their eye shape. And perhaps the biggest hassle of eye tape like Dream Look Instant Eye Lift is that its effects are only present as long as the tape is in place. Swimming and other rigorous activities are off-limits.
Eyelid surgery is a customized plastic surgery procedure that offers nearly permanent results. Depending on your desired results, the surgery can lift your eyelids, reduce sagging skin, create a crease, and even reduce the bags beneath the eyes. Eyelid surgery is one of the world’s most popular plastic surgery procedures, thanks to its ability to truly open up and beautify the face.
