Crystal Clear's new pen "lifts and firms" (but isn't rude)
I might get kicked out of the girl club for admitting this, but I get more excited (probably too excited) about a new episode of Geekbrief than the latest Vogue and while I can find a hundred reasons to buy another MP3 player, dropping a hundred bucks on the latest face cream would make me want to cry.
However, I do like the occasional spree at Sephora (eyeshadows a specialty) so I had a little interest in news of a new beauty gadget for the eye area. Crystal Clear's eye pen is a battery-operated serum delivery system (which sounds a bit rude, but isn't). You gently rub the pen around the eye area to simultaneously stimulate circulation and ensure an even application of serum. (Again, sounds rude, but really isn't.)
According to Crystal Clear, the pen "helps with dark circles, puffiness, lines and wrinkles and can also help lift and firm the skin around the eye." It looks a little high-maintenance for my liking (I'd rather just wear sunglasses when I leave the house) and I could easily fund a second iPod with the £135 ($267) price tag but if your crow's feet are your bete noir, I'd consider this before rushing straight to the botox doctor's door.
