La Vie Celeste Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream
La Vie Celeste Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream is a gentle, silky cream that brightens and refines eyes. It contains the powerful antioxidant R-lipoic acid as well as the potent peptide ChroNoline to smooth lines and wrinkles. This hydrating eye cream also contains bearberry and bilberry extract to reduce dark circles and under-eye puffiness for eyes that look refreshed, luminous and youthful.
TIA Review by Marta:
I have been using La Vie Celeste’s Restorative Rose Hydrosol Eye Cream with R-Lipoic Acid for a month and it is an excellent product in the mid-price range. Its well chosen ingredients do an excellent job at firming and hydrating.
The key ingredient is R-lipoic acid, a chirally correct form of alpha lipoic acid. This “universal antioxidant” helps fight both future skin damage and repair damage done in the past by diminishing fine lines, giving skin a healthy glow, and boosting the levels and efficacy of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E. There is also research demonstrating that it can diminish scars. it helps fight inflammation and water retention by inhibiting the production of the pro-inflammatory chemical cytokine. For good reason, alpha lipoic acid is a signature ingredient of Perricone MD’s line, but now – with organic La Vie Celeste with which every ingredient counts - you don’t have to compromise with all those department store brand fillers.
The mostly plant based formula in LVC’s eye cream includes one of my favorite botanicals, bearberry, a source of arbutin and, therefore, a skin brightener. And there are plenty of antioixdants in the forms of bilberry, pomegranate and green tea. The marine extract spirulina brings rare essential lipids, vitamin B12 and minerals. Spirulina is one of the best known sources of gamma linolenic acid (omega 6) after human milk.
An unusual and exotic ingredient is gardenia tahitensis. (or taitensis), which has historically held an important place in Polynesian medicine. It may have anti-inflammatory properties, but there has been little research on this plant so far. In cosmetics it is mixed with coconut oil to produce a skin moisturizer and it is also a highly effectiveantibacterial (perhaps it will come into its own one day as a natural preservative).
After a month of using this cream, I feel as if it is gently compatible with my delicate eye area. My skin looks clear and refreshed and above all hydrated. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an eye cream to help with dry, crepey issues.
