Eye creams for men seem to be all the rage these days, and they are one of the top sellers for most men's grooming lines. I have never really devoted myself to any specific eye cream, but now that I'm 30, I'm reviewing all options for retaining even a sliver of youth. So when Marta gave me Lab Series for Men Age Rescue Eye Therapy ($26 for 15ml), I couldn't resist.
I have to admit, I have never been a big fan of Lab Series; I thought their products were somewhat abrasive and gimmicky (ie: the Ab Rescue Body Sculpting Gel... basically menthol in a tube).
The Age Rescue Eye Therapy, however, is an exception. Though it is by no means a miracle product, it's definitely better than some of the eye creams out there. It is meant to be used daily, morning and night, as part of your skincare routine. It promises to diminish the appearance of dark circles, improve elasticity and firmness, and basically brighten and smooth.
When I applied it under both eyes, I felt an instant lift. Thankfully, the product is fragrance-free and oil-free, which ensures that there's not a bunch of unnecessary ingredients involved. What I really appreciated was the fact it contained a handful of fruit extracts and green tea leaf extract, as well as other antioxidant agents.
When you break down the name of the product, it doesn't disappoint, really:
- Age Rescue: Yes, it does make your eyes feel less tired and abused.
- Eye Therapy: Yes, it does smoothe, lift, repair and enhance.
