The box reads “for transitioning skin.” At one time this was a distant thought for me.  But once you comprehend that the bloom of youth has faded, it is indeed an encouragement to read that hope may lie behind the words, in the box.

The product I am referring to is kaplanMD Intensive Eye Cream, and yes, they do understand “transitioning skin.”  With a plethora of eye products on the market today that do little more than make your money vanish, this is one that delivers quite beautifully.  This eye cream has the ‘Marta recommendation and seal of approval’ and I can see why.  Marine extracts, peptides, antioxidants and skin brighteners all combine to make a great eye treatment.

There are so many things I like about this eye cream.  First, it has a really light consistency that absorbs immediately.  Non-greasy and fragrance free, it only gets better by leaving skin with a matte finish.  A little bit goes a long way and the airless pump allows you to dispense precisely the amount you want.

But what I like most about this cream is it has lived up to its claims to “replenish, restore and firm delicate skin around the eyes.”  Tapping the eye cream on above and under the eyes morning and night, results began to materialize within about a week.  Now after almost four weeks, the fine lines I had at the corners are gone and the skin is actually firmer, plumper and more elastic.  Dark circles aren’t a problem for me, so I can’t attest to how this affects them.

However, my “transitioning skin” appears more youthful and I am really pleased with the results I have achieved with use of this eye cream.  Although this is the first kaplanMD product I have tried, they have a complete line of skin care products that may bear a closer look for transitioning skin.
