What do I need for the area under my eyes after this never ending winter spell in the North East? Brightness, firmness, and… to lose last season’s bags. Luckily, the brand new Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift arrived to show off its skills pre-release and my peepers couldn’t be more grateful. This high-performance formula is a godsend for those who worry, travel, don’t sleep enough, overindulge in the social scene, or qualify for all of the above.
What does Stress Positive mean?
Stress negatively impacts our bodies, including the skin, in countless ways. In short, it accelerates the aging process. There are certain situations, however, that you can tackle productively. Focus on a positive outcome, which is what stress positive really means. It’s the good outcome to a not-so-good scenario.
Packaged in a slim tube with a slanted metal tip applicator, the new Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift immediately scores high marks for the TSA approved, pocket friendly exterior as well as for its multitasking abilities. The gel-cream texture has enough body to deliver much needed moisture and hydration, absorbs seamlessly, and provides all day comfort to the delicate skin around the eye.
What’s in it?
Focused on reviving and erasing signs of fatigue, the new Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift is loaded with impressive botanicals. Key players here are Wild Indigo Seed (brightening), Sea Water Extract and Arctic Algae (de-puffing), Bioactive Diglucosyl Gallic Acid (energizing), Fermented Yeast, and a unique Hyaluronic Acid blend (lifting). Dimethicone is present so expect a lush slippery consistency. Infused with nourishing Jojoba Oil, Niacinamide, and Damask Rose Oil, among others, the formula is both ambitious and very impressive.
Extremely versatile, the new Stress Positive Eye Lift can be used in a couple of ways. Most days, I apply and wear it as any eye cream, which works great. On rougher mornings, you’ll want to glide the metallic tip around the entire eye area and benefit from the cooling sensation, which will help with the dreaded bags.
This nifty potion works best when applied liberally so don’t be stingy. No drowning of your eyeballs though. Take your time and massage it in gently until it’s fully absorbed. When and how often you do this is totally up to you, but it’s safe and gentle enough to be used daily.
Truly remarkable, the new Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift is a pocket size miracle that has just become my new travel essential. Formulated without parabens, artificial fragrances, nor colors, it should be topping your Spring shopping list. Because longer days, shorter nights.
