Now I told you about the Cover FX make up demonstration I attended at House of Fraser last week. Well apart from having the pleasure of meeting Cover FX founder Lee Graff and having my make up done by a cover FX pro, I also got some gorgeous goodies to take home and try. And try them I have!
In this post I’ll be telling you about the Eye Prep FX, Cover FX’s latest product launch and cosmeceutical innovation.

Now this is a really lovely product. I’ve been using it for about 4 days now and I’m really very pleased with it.
You apply as you would a regular eye cream and you can be safe in the knowledge that it is kind to sensitive skin as it’s paraben free, oil free and fragrance free. Cover FX tells us:
- The blend of ultra-elite ingredients, Haloxyl and Eyeliss work to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness
- Peptide Flash Complex is also incorporated, which instantly tightens and firms while long-term improvements include repairing and strengthening the eye area
- Cucumber extract works with detoxifying minerals to cool, soften and hydrate the skin leaving the eye area feeling fresh and revitalized
- Eye Prep FX instantly binds concealer and eye shadows to lids and eye area with Dermaveil Cool Technology, a proprietary complex that immediately reduces the appearance of fine lines and creates a smooth base for makeup.
So this is my take on Eye Prep FX.
The texture is gorgeous. It is super moisturising and soothing. My skin drinks it up and my lines are instantly smoother.
Puffiness? Check. First thing in the morning, this sorts out my tired eyes a treat. The puffiness is definitely reduced.
Dark circles? I can’t tell because I don’t really have them! I’m showing off now!!
Tightens and firms? Yes. The area feels smoothed out and is perfectly primed for makeup.
Cools, softens and hydrates? Definitely. It feels beautiful on the skin, my lines seem smoother and the area feels and looks hydrated.
Smooth base for makeup? Totally! The whole area is softened and smoothed. My foundation glides on and my eye area looks much less flawed than normal. I’m 36, I have lines, but they are much less noticeable.
So overall impression? Yay!! It’s great! I applied the primer about 10 hours ago and I am feeling the area as I type, and it still feels soft and hydrated. Double yay!! With continued use, I feel like the benefits could improve. Lee Graff told us she’s been testing it for 6 months, half a pump, morning and night, and that the overall quality of her eye area has noticeably improved. Exciting!

Now it’s not cheap. It’s £41 for 20ml so a bit of an investment. But you literally only need half a pump, so it would last ages. I didn’t have to buy it (lucky lucky lucky) but I definitely would buy it.
Eye Prep FX is available selected House of Fraser stores nationwide and Harvey Nichols (London and Dublin). A range of Cover FX products are available online at houseoffraser.co.uk. Get Free standard delivery for orders over £50 at houseoffraser.co.uk
