The Eye Balm
WHY YOU NEED IT
A rich and luxurious eye treatment that helps lock-in moisture to help minimize fine lines and protect the delicate eye area. The cream melts on contact to deliver buttery-rich plant oils that deeply nourish and replenish the skin. Ingredients like Fermented Papaya and Guava Seed Oil work to brighten the area while Phyto Ceramides increase elasticity and firmness.
WHY I LOVE IT
I am a firm believer in eye cream. The rich formulation of eye cream deeply hydrates the eye area, keeping the skin elastic and supple. I also believe in its long term benefits, so investing in the routine early, and being consistent, is key. This balm is pretty special. It's not heavy like so many of the other eye balms I've tried, it's more the texture of a light lip balm so it doesn't leave you with greasy looking eyes. And because it's a balm, it's also lovely on the lips, or even rubbed into cuticles and it can even be used as a dewy highlighter on the cheekbones. It also has a light herbal aroma of blueberries and matcha tea which is truly delicious smelling (even if it makes me a little hungry before bed).
Honestly, this eye cream from Mary Allan is too special for just a blurb. Her products are amazing and made with deep research and innovative ingredients. They're designed to be performance driven while being kind to your skin, and the planet. She combines science and nature to achieve the very best results, creating beautiful natural, efficacious products. Please keep reading for more a detailed description of the formulation:
This formulation is infused with Umi-budō Okinawan Phyto Caviar, known as the longevity super-food by the Okinawa (Blue Zone) people. Umi-Budō is loaded with β-glucan which is structurally similar to hyaluronic acid and is rich in amino acids, vitamin A and C. Shea Butter and Uji Matcha Tea Butter pair with Hyaluronic Acid to help increase moisture retention while a botanical urban shield helps protects against external environmental stressors. A patented phyto-active stimulates the synthesis of collagen.
