It is common for people to use similar set of beauty products for day and night. While it may not cause any trouble for your skin, it may not be the best option for good complexion.
This is because, the needs of your skin in the day and at night are different. In the day, your skin typically needs protection from the sun and to be keep from greasing, however at night, your skin takes a rest and starts its repair.
When it comes to eye contour care, combatting puffiness and keeping the eye area hydrated to keep fine lines from appearing may be of utmost importance. However, when it comes to the evening, it’s time to repair the delicate skin around the eyes so that signs of ageing can delay their appearance.
Award-winning beauty salon, Estetica’s latest skin-savers is the ést.lab Optimalift A+ Multi-Repair Eye Essence. Developed by skincare professionals at ést.lab, it promises to depuff, smoothen and firm the eye contours.
The star ingredient of this product is Eyeliss, a patented ingredient made up of three active molecules that work together to increase lymphatic movements to decongest the eye area and prevent puffiness and reduce eye bags. It also strengthens the capillaries around the eye areas so that dark circles will not appear due to leakage.
Another two potent ingredients in the formula are Argireline and Leuphasyl, which are seen as alternatives to botox. These help to deliver anti-ageing and firming actions to the eye contours.
Finally, the formula also consists of Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Tetrapeptide 7 and Matrixyl-3000 that are proven to smoothen skin, visibly diminish wrinkles and shield the skin from the effects of UV rays respectively.
These benefits make it a good eye contour care product for use in the day.
As for your evening regime, consider the OptimaLift A + Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream, which is formulated for intense repair and regeneration, for ageing concerns.
Do they work?
The ést.lab OptimaLift A+ Multi Repair Eye Essence comes with a pump that ensures absolute hygiene – something that I appreciate for eye creams. While its name says it’s an “essence” but its texture is more like a cream.
When using it, go gentle with the pump because a lot of product can be dispense from it. The first time I used it, I realise that I dispensed too much of it. A little will go a long way.
Upon massaging it onto the eye contours, I notice that it leaves a tingling sensation on the skin. Minutes after application, I noticed that fine lines that usually appear under my eyes, no thanks to the dry air from air-conditioning, are not as visible as before. My eye contours also felt taut and looked bright.
The ést.lab OptimaLift A+ Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream, on the other hand, leaves a cooling sensation on the skin, and has a luxurious texture. It is very hydrating and I notice that the eye area looks less tired after using it the night before.
The ést.lab OptimaLift A+ Multi Repair Eye Essence retails at SGD119 and the OptimaLift A+ Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream at SGD108. They are available at esteticabeauty.com/shop and at all Estetica beauty studios islandwide.
