I am 41 with fair, thin skin. I have avoided sun exposure and have used SPF every day for over 20 years. I used the ExPürtise Effective Anti-Aging Eye Serum ($65 in the shop) morning and night in addition to my normal skin care regimen. Over the years I've always used a separate eye cream and this one is by far the best, and I’ve tried them all!
This eye serum packs a serious punch when it comes to keeping the eye area taught and protected! It's more like a thick cream than a serum and virtually makes my orbital area smooth and tight.
ExPürtise boasts several active anti-aging ingredients in its formula. Notable ingredients include antioxidant vitamin C for free radical protection, Matrixyl 3000 for tightening skin and minimizing wrinkles and chamomile for calming skin and reducing redness and inflammation. It also has a ton of botanicals and other vitamins including cucumber, goji berry, sesame seed oil and vitamin K for lightening, brightening and de-puffing. This serum also contains natural preservative radish root ferment.
There are some transdermal properties to this particular serum I must point out. If I focus on the orbital area and dab it on my lids, my eyes become a bit blurred, which meant I used way too much. Aside from that, I know that the cream is working into the deeper layers of my skin, meaning it's truly correcting my eye area.
The price of ExPürtise is amazing for what you get and the packaging is great. The cream dispenses easily and you don't need much at all. I patted it from outer corners of my orbital area and rubbed it around in a circle with my index fingers until it fully absorbed.
After using it for 3 weeks my eyes look more open and vibrant. I'll definitely keep this in my routiner forever. This eye cream is absolutely miraculous. It made me look more rested and alert than I had been in a year. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great eye cream, but use it sparingly!
