Why do I need to use an eye cream?

The eyes can express so much without a word being spoken – surprise, happiness, concern.

When we interact, it’s natural to look at people’s eyes to connect and engage. So the eye area, which has thinner skin and can suffer from dryness due to fewer oil glands, is almost always the first facial feature that people notice. The odd laughter line here and there adds character but nobody wants heavy bags, deep crow’s feet, and puffiness to be the things that stand out when they look in the mirror. Investing in a good eye cream therefore becomes vital for maintaining an overall youthfulness about our appearance. Because this particular area is vulnerable to ageing, it’s important to use products which have a lightweight consistency but which also contain heavyweight ingredients to hydrate, moisturise and brighten. Thankfully, at ELEMIS, we have a whole range of eye creams which work in harmony with your skincare programme whatever your main concern may be: brightening, anti-ageing, de-puffing or hydrating.

ELEMIS eye creams and their benefits

Pro-Radiance Illuminating Eye Balm

This instantly illuminating eye balm brightens, refreshes and nourishes. Perfect for applying before or after your foundation, the peachy tone of the balm blends and fades into the skin whatever your skin colour whilst optical blurring powders get to work on reflecting the light below the eye. For reducing puffiness, anti-inflammatory Arnica and calming Chamomile work together to soothe. Exotic Bird of Paradise Flower has been shown to be effective at reducing the multiple signs of ageing leading to a more youthful complexion. Finally, for deep moisturisation, Omega-rich Apricot Kernel Oil nourishes. The balm comes with a roller ball applicator that cools and soothes as you apply for targeted brightening.

Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal

Charged with the powerful anti-ageing properties of Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica, this intensive eye cream is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.* Amino Acids, Beta-Carotene and Vitamins B, C and E contained in Chlorella and Blue Green Micro-algae, help to smooth and firm the skin. The marine cocktail is completed with the anti-oxidant properties of Methylsilanol Mannuronate, an organic derivative of seaweed that locks in moisture. In Independent Consumer Trials, 100% of the panel agreed that this is the most effective eye cream that they have ever used.
