Introducing Eye Contour Gel-Serum, a Targeted High-Tech Formula for Rapid Results

Finding the right eye care treatment can be a challenge. Should you opt for creams or serums, how often do you apply, do you even need a product that’s different from your daily moisturizer? Because skin under and around the eyes is thinner than skin on the rest of the face, it can require specific, targeted treatment. If you’ve only ever taken the eye cream route, our latest launch will have you seeing reasons to add a serum to your rotation. New high tech Eye Contour Gel-Serum is a concentrated cooling gel-serum that lifts and firms to reduce the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles, while visibly soothing, tightening, and reinforcing the barrier function of the skin for a more youthful, energized appearance. It goes to work to quickly penetrate the skin and will become your new antidote to stubborn eye issues.

A Deeply Efficacious Ingredient Ensemble:

This thick-yet-quickly-absorbing gel-serum is powered by a combination of advanced ingredients that sink into skin and go to work as a wake-up call. To achieve this unique formulation, we applied potent biotechnology, a scientific process that uses bio-fermentation to safely engineer skincare actives through natural reactions. The result? An extremely efficacious amalgamation ready to reinvent your eye care regimen. Meet the cutting-edge ingredient crew.

Peptides:

Oligosaccharides, bio-actives sourced from sweet white lupine and alfalfa, promote synthesis of epidermal proteins and lipids to visibly tone and firm, limit trans epidermal water loss, and reinforce the skin’s barrier function. They also help stimulate lymph drainage, resulting in reduced swelling and surface under eye bags.

 

Humectants + Firming Agents:

Yeast Beta-Glucan, a highly effective, antioxidant-rich humectant, also produced through biotechnology, attracts water to the top layers of skin for a plumping effect, while decreasing the look of wrinkles, redness, and irritation. Ceramides further support the skin’s barrier and increase hydration, giving you the appearance of plumper, smoother, firmer-feeling skin. Another water-binding star, Fucoidan-rich Seaweed Extract, is a bioactive that helps raise the skin’s moisture levels.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) minimizes the look of pores and discoloration, helps improve the skin’s resilience, and visibly brightens and fights dullness for a radiant, even-looking skin tone. Bulbine frutescens, a plant known for its healing properties, helps restore the skin’s barrier function for firmer-looking skin.

 

Antioxidants:

Caffeine doesn’t only revitalize when consumed in a cup of coffee. This topical ingredient contains antioxidants that help protect against free radicals as well as activate microcirculation to reduce the appearance of puffiness. Our new super serum has no shortage of antioxidant overachievers: Vitamin E comes in to work together with Vitamin C for added protection against environmental stressors. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (a stable, water-soluble form of Vitamin C that functions as an antioxidant) helps brighten for a more even skin tone. Rooibos, Ferulic acid and Marula Oil join the mix to help provide additional antioxidant protection, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and soothe redness and sensitivity.

 

Anti-inflammatories:

Arnica, an oft-touted anti-inflammatory, Honeybush Leaf and Dragon’s Blood, help calm inflammation while lessening redness and swelling

Daily Dose:

Use Eye Contour Gel-Serum when you wake up in the morning and before you go to bed at night right after cleansing. Gently press a small amount, the size of a grain of rice, under the eyes and across the eyelids extending from the inside out. Pat with fingertips to help stimulate microcirculation and to boost radiance. Allow the formula a minute to absorb. It may cause a cooling and tingling sensation upon application and can be stored in the fridge for an even more energizing cooling effect. Because the texture is a thick gel-serum, it is super satisfying to apply.

Make it a full sensorial experience by pairing it with a tool, such as a jade roller, to work the product into skin while manually massaging and de-puffing. Whether you’ve never introduced an eye product into your skincare schedule, or you’ve been searching for the right one, the gel-serum delivery system soaks into skin quickly and is as easy to use as it is effective.

Pair Up For a Full Eye Routine

You might already layer your skincare, but have you ever paired your eye products? Eye Contour Gel-Serum finds a perfect partner in Resurrection Eye Cream. If you don’t know Resurrection Eye Cream, it’s an intensive, highly concentrated, velvety cream formula that renews skin cells, boosts collagen and elastin production, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, all while restoring youthful density to the orbital area. You’ll recognize crossover ingredients from Eye Contour Gel-Serum, like Yeast Beta-Glucan, Caffeine, Arnica Extract, Ceramides, and Niacinamide. These ingredients are incredibly effective on their own, and can pack a double punch when combined. The moisturizing cream also features other carefully curated biotechnology and rare plant extracts. Two of its acclaimed actives, Laminaria Algae and Resurrection Plant, reverse signs of aging by bringing back the skin’s structure and firmness and enhancing moisture retention.

Together, this duo will de-puff and awaken under eyes while nourishing plus protecting the area and replenishing it with wrinkle-minimizing bio-actives.

First, use Eye Contour Gel-Serum after cleansing, and let it absorb for a minute. Then, apply a small amount of Resurrection Eye Cream under the eye, gently patting it into skin before continuing with the rest of your regimen.
