This killer eye formula from Estée Lauder has been on counter for quite a while now, but I just had to give it a very loud shout out due to its amazingly high efficacy. Sure it costs, but damn, does it do what it says!
Winner of Allure magazine's 'Best of Beauty' award for Best Top Splurges 2015, Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Transformative Energy Eye Crème is one of the most high performance products developed for the eye area that I have had the privilege of using. And yep, it works.
The eyes are the first place people look at when they are talking to you, and the first place where aging signs start to show, so it makes sense that taking care of the skin around the eyes is a priority if that’s what you’re into. Everything that challenges skin as you get older is even more true for the eye area, which is thinner, dryer and more fragile than skin elsewhere on the body. Sun and environmental exposure and a dry environment accelerate the process. You begin to see unwelcome aging signs: like dryness, lines, crow’s feet, sagging, puffiness, dark circles and irritation from around 30 onwards, and then it’s a slippy slope unless you’re well prepared.
Which brings me to Estée Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Transformative Energy Eye Crème, which had me from the first hello. So… besides the gorgeous gold packaging and insanely heavy, all glass jar that would look stellar on the vanity, what won me over? Well this luxurious cream increases collagen production by up to 200 per cent in about three days and come infused with Black Diamond Truffle, one of nature’s most rare treasures. Transformed through a secret process into a pure, precious extract. 10,000 hours in the making, Lauder calls it “a potent energy infusion for your skin”. As well as doing good below the surface, it also uses 24K gold and sea pearls to give an illuminating quality to the area, making your dark circles and wrinkles look significantly better from first application. Love that!
I love how unashamedly rich and luxurious to use this eye crème is, which may bother younger women who give it a bash due to the amount of time it could take to absorb on younger skin in the mornings. If that’s you that I recommend you use it sparingly, as you just don’t want to miss out on all of the great stuff it can do. I find with my skin being on the dehydrated side a lot of the time it is exactly what the doctor ordered, and twice a day use has been having quite the major effect. Soothing and softening have been just two of the benefits after one pot has been finished, along with almost a definite reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Magic? This may be… highly recommended if stopping the clock is your bag, too.Tweet
