Age Reversal Eye Complex
This is an excellent, fragrance-free eye cream that delivers anti-aging benefits to all skin types.
Packaged in an opaque squeeze tube, this lightweight yet highly moisturizing cream is loaded with skin-silkening ingredients, retinol, peptides, some interesting antioxidants, and several natural water-binding agents.
Contrary to claim, this won’t do much to stop undereye bags, as those are a by-product of changes happening far beyond where skincare ingredients can reach. Still, there’s a lot this can do in terms of smoothing wrinkles, firming, and perhaps even softening the look of dark circles.
Exclusive AGE Smart active ingredient complex fends off free radicals that can lead to premature aging, also fighting bags and under eye dark circles. With continued use your skin will increase in resilience and maintain its firmness.
According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.
The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
