Nature's Gate Ultimate Comfort Eye Cream ($14.99; natures-gate.com): Eight essential amino acids and sodium PCA, a natural humectant that draws moisture to the skin, help hydrate, while extracts of eyebright, chamomile, and cucumber brighten and soothe. As a bonus, the cream's pump dispenses just the right amount, keeping application tidy.
The Velvet Eye Gel is a fresh, non-oily, light and easily-absorbed gel that helps the eye area to effectively protect itself against the first signs of aging. Its formula contains a unique combination of active ingredients:
-Almond proteins and silicium (to help firm skin, improve its elasticity and smooth fine lines)
-Organic apple extract (to help protect against free radicals)
-A firming extract derived from almond (to tighten the skin)
-A plant-based complex (to ease the appearance of dark circles)
-Flavonoids extracted from sweet orange (for anti-puffiness action)
-Natural-based micro pearls (to illuminate the skin)
The eye area is refreshed, dark circles and puffiness are less visible. The eye area is smoothed and better protected.
coffretgorge says: I bought this product because i was quite impressed with the list of benefits it promised to give. Protection, firming, lightening, anti-puffiness which i need. The gel has tiny specks of shimmer (to brighten up the eye area.) I tried using it in the morning to brighten up my eyes but it took forever to dry up so now i only use it at night. When dry, it gives the applied area a refreshing and slightly tight feeling, which makes you feel its working on fine lines. I've been using it for almost a month now. It's okay. I only wish L'Occitane can fix the loose screw caps! You can't rely on the bottle at all especially when traveling as it comes loose on its own! I read some reviews on their site and a lot of users have also experienced this, causing them to lose a lot of product or spill product in their bags! Price is a bit higher than Nature's Gate. I bought mine at L'Occitane, Essenses, Rustan's Makati.
