The SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex Has Seriously Improved the Appearance of My Fine Lines
The delicate eye area can be the first place to show signs of aging. Over the past few months, I’ve definitely begun to notice fine lines, creping and loss of volume and moisture around my eyes, and the stress from the coronavirus pandemic certainly hasn’t helped. To give my under-eye area a little extra TLC, I know that using a hydrating, nourishing and plumping eye cream is a must. I’ve struggled to find a go-to product, so when I received a complimentary sample of the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex, I couldn’t wait to give the anti-aging product a try. Find my full review, ahead. Spoiler: It’s really, really good.
The Benefits of SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex
Skin around the eye contour is paper thin and extremely delicate, which can make visible signs of aging even more apparent. Glycation, a major factor of intrinsic aging, occurs when excess sugar molecules in the cells stick to collagen and elastin fibers. It then causes chemical reactions called A.G.E. or Advanced Glycation-End. These reactions can reduce the fibers’ regenerative ability and lead to wrinkling of the skin. That’s where A.G.E. Complex comes in. This eye cream is specially formulated to improve the creping, sagging appearance around the eyes caused by intrinsic aging processes such as glycation. What’s more, it alleviates puffiness and dark circles. The formula is enriched with a complex of flavonoids and synergistic peptides, blueberry extract, and proxylane. Optical diffusers also improve the radiance of tired, dull eyes.
How to Use SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex
Eye creams can sometimes irritate the eye area if applied too close to the eye. The best way to apply eye cream is by placing small dots around each orbital bone from the inner to the outer corners of the eye area, plus the brow bone. Then, using the tip of your ring or pinky finger, gently blend the formula with light strokes. Be sure not to tug on the skin, as this can cause wrinkling over time. Instead, stick to a light dabbing motion. For optimal results, wear the eye cream with a broad-spectrum SPF like SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50.
SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex Review
,My skin is still dry from the winter months and as a result, crow’s feet and expression lines around my eyes are appearing more prominent than usual. That’s why when searching for an eye cream, hydration is key. I was hoping that this formula would do the trick. After washing my face, I dipped my clean pinky finger into the jar and began placing small dots around my eye contour area, blending gently. The cream goes on thick but quickly absorbs into the skin and leaves behind a velvety-soft, silky finish. It instantly quenched my dry skin and gave my under-eye a more radiant appearance. There was no sticky residue left behind and my concealer layered over top seamlessly. One thing to note: A little bit goes a long way with this cream. So even though the jar is small, it will last a while.
My initial impression was all positive, but I was curious to see what the long-term effects would be, so I continued using the product morning and night for about two months. Around the six-week mark, my under-eye area looked plumped and moisturized. I had no dry patches or irritation. What’s more, my fine lines and crow’s feet had a visibly reduced appearance. And, perhaps my favorite benefit, my dark circles looked brighter and I looked more awake, even when I didn’t get a full night’s sleep. This eye cream certainly lived up to my expectations. I seriously recommend adding it to your anti-aging arsenal — it’s a winner in my opinion!
