I must admit, when I first opened the package and tried to put the device together, I was a little confused. I didn’t realize that the little plastic knob at the top of one end was actually where you squeeze the serum that ends up coating the eye area. But once I got past that hurdle, it was full steam ahead! (Or, in this case, full vibrate ahead.)
The way the Opal works is this. It comes in two parts that fit together in an oversized, curved egg-like shape. When snapped apart, the bottom half houses the plastic knob and actual vibrating device. The other is where you pour in the serum that will then be squeezed onto the knob. The bottom half has a button on one side that, when pressed, activates the device for 30 seconds. Simply squeeze the serum onto the knob, press the button and roll under one eye for the 30 seconds—then squeeze more serum onto the knob, press the button again and roll over the other eye for another 30 seconds.
Sound complicated? It’s really not, once you get the hang of it. And I’m happy to report I’ve seen a major difference in the wrinkles, lines and puffiness around my eyes since I began using this nifty little device! I’ve been using it once a week before bed, and it’s pretty amazing to watch the wrinkles disappear right before my ... well, before my eyes! The vibrating sensation is also quite soothing -- I was worried it might be painful or too intense for the delicate skin underneath my eyes, but it doesn’t hurt in the slightest.
“Eye” must admit, my eyes certainly have a renewed sparkle thanks to the Clarisonic Opal!
