I’ve always heard the old adage that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Apparently, they are also the windows to how fast we are really aging. The skin around our eyes are extremely delicate and thin and is vulnerable to age-related physical changes which includes: fine lines, dark circles and bags. Because the area is so thin, we usually avoid the eye area (as recommended) when we use our aging reversal ingredients like glycolic acid and retinol. However, to fight the signs of aging, it is important that we incorporate or add cosmetics specially formulated to address this delicate area.
*Knock on wood* Fine lines are not a problem at the moment, but puffy eyes and dark circles are issues that I’ve been dealing with because of allergies and honestly, lack of sleep. This is why I was really excited to try Resvology Age Corrective Eye Cream. The product claims to minimize crows feet, fine lines and wrinkles while reinforcing skin firmness and elasticity. It also claims to alleviate puffy eyes and brighten dark circles through its miracle ingredient resveratryl acetate (aka 4-AR Molecule). According to the packaging, this key ingredient has been proven to activate 85 key skin-related genes which keep skin acting and looking younger.
I’ve been using the product for the last two weeks now. As usual, I failed to take a before picture to use for comparison later on and it’s hard for me to tell if the product is doing its thing as far as dark circles are concerned. However, since I started using it, I have not used a concealer under my eyes before applying my BB cream. As far as puffiness is concerned, the Resvology apparently did its thing. Recently, after a night of tossing and turning I was greeted in my mirror with two very puffy eyes. I applied the cream as recommended and my eyes were back to normal by the time I reached for my first cup of coffee.
It’s lightweight and has a very light fragrance. The cream is available on the Resvology’s website and sells for $89. The recommended application is to use in the morning and night.
