All about: Dermalogica UltraSmoothing Eye Serum


Some of the most effective facials I’ve had are courtesy of the team at Louise Gray Skin Care, where their potion of choice is the legendary Dermalogica. It’s a brand that balances high performance and utmost care for the skin effortlessly, and seeing what new releases they come out with is always exciting.
The latest is UltraSmoothing Eye Serum, which was developed for people who experience skin irritation and puffiness around the eye area but still want an eye cream that packs a punch in the anti-ageing fight. It has been formulated to ease fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, and general loss of vitality and elasticity in the skin, and utilise’s the brand’s exclusive UltraCalming Complex consisting of Oat extracts, bisabolol, ginger extract and Red Hogweed to target the symptoms of inflammation. This works over time to help reduce and prevent future sensitization, redness and irritation.
The serum also combats eye puffiness with its botanical extracts, specifically using two sulfated polysaccharides from Harpoon Weed (Asparagopsis) and Norwegian kelp (Ascophyllum), algae native to Ouessant Island off the Brittany coast of France. These botanicals are combined in the formula with Golden Chamomile (Chrysanthellum indica). In combination, these plant actives help increase the mechanical resistance of the capillaries, preventing leakage of fluids through the capillary walls that can cause puffiness. Clever stuff, and an absolute godsend for many of us in the morning.
Last but not least, there are a boatload of powerful anti-ageing ingredients in there including Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP), a water-soluble form of Vitamin C, which is effective in low concentrations and is stable at a neutral pH. Unlike similar compounds that require a high and potentially irritating level of acidity to be effective, its neutral pH prevents further stinging, redness and sensitization around the eye area. The age fighting and soothing combination of actives are suspended in an Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice that helps soothe skin and cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid for moisture retention and free-radical scavenging; Carrot Root oil with added proVitamin A, completes the formula to help regenerate dry, stressed skin.           
But okay, enough with the science. It’s a beautiful formula to use and everything points to it being a pretty magical product for many of us out there that battle with seasonal allergies and that getting older thing. UltraSmoothing Eye Serum will be available wherever Dermalogica is sold and online from 1st of July 2013 with an RRP of $92.00.
