Budget Buy for 20s-30s
PROS: Chock full of superfruit antioxidants - use this to prevent lines before they start!
CONS: Lacks the potency needed for real age-reversal.
Best for Puffiness
Eyebright extract helps stimulate the release of trapped fluids to reduce puffiness.
CONS: Rare, but the essential oils can irritate some users.
Best for Crows Feet
PROS: Let's just say this is like calling in the "big guns". Potent cocoa bean & sea algae begin to restore and rejuvenate in just 28 days.
CONS: Turning back the clock comes with a price.
Model's Secret Weapon
PROS: Supermodels swear by this for fast results when they don't get enough sleep.
CONS: Slightly grainy texture doesn't make the best makeup base.
Best for Dark Circles
PROS: Nothing seems to work on dark circles ... except this! Thanks to
White Lily flower extract.
CONS: This concentrated serum is potent but not very hydrating. Some will need extra moisture.
PROS: This eye cream is hydrating enough for the driest skin & climates.
CONS: Can be too emollient to use under makeup.
Best for Sunken Eyes
PROS: Collagen-boosting peptides in a silky textured serum will reverse the "sunken socket" look caused by collagen loss.
CONS: Results will be gradual (but worth the wait!)
Best for Sensitive
PROS: Dryness, lines, redness & dark circles aren't just signs of aging - they can actually be signs of irritation & inflammation. This works by calming & soothing.
CONS: Gentler actives can mean milder results.
Whte Tea & CoQ10 provide an armour against aging and environmental damage.
CONS: Will prevent but wont undo.
Oat Polysaccharides smoothe, firm & tighten while mineral Mica gives a brightening glow.
CONS: Firming - yes, but can also be drying if overused.
Best Prep Product
PROS: Potent actives perfectly plump & soften, leaving a supple smooth surface under makeup.
CONS: May not be appropriate for sensitive skin.
Best for Dry Mature
PROS: For delicate dry eye (& lip!) areas. The potency of a serum with the hydration of a cream in an easily absorbed luxury oil.
CONS: Lacks the firming action some desire.
