Our eyes are one of the first areas to show signs of ageing and yet many people tend to overlook the importance of having a good skincare routine for the eye area. Helming from Germany, Dr. Belter Cosmetic has launched the Cosmetic Multiactive Eye Contour Collagen-pad Mask (SGD178), a two-part kit that includes a serum and 20 collagen-pads, to help with smoothing an firming the area around your eyes.
