We finally figured out how to stop our former much-loved eye gel from separating! It has now morphed into an even better product, now incorporating locally sourced pure boab oil, which is said to counteract sagging skin around the eyes.
Tested on animals (our STAFF!) - they all love it! Eyes feel wide open and zinging. This is a densely rich product, packed with tightening, collagen-producing, anti-oxidant and hydrating actives, and you only need a tiny amount dotted around the eye and gently massaged in from inner to outer corner.
Apply nightly, and add mornings under moisturiser & sunscreen if you wish. We were mindful of being really gentle, and have not added essential oils, preferring to make the serum with just pure hydrosols for light aroma.
We have sourced some serum pumps for this one, but it takes a lot of pumps to raise the serum when you first use them, so don't give up! It will eventually rise up the fine tube.
Powerful but gentle emollients olive squalane, boab oil and hyaluronic acid moisturise and replenish the delicate skin around eyes. Active ingredients Skintight AP (an algae extract) and Tripeptide-5 firm the skin, boost collagen production and are said to reduce wrinkles. The gel also includes cooling cucumber extract and, rather than essential oils, pure safe Bulgarian rosa damascena hydrosol. Hyaluronic acid is a major component of the connective tissue in the skin. It is a naturally occurring protein that retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 500 times its weight.
"For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people...the beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides."
(Written by Sam Levinson, often quoted by Audrey Hepburn)
