Now that I'm in my thirties, I'm starting to be more serious about preventing premature aging. I can feel my body changing and, obviously, our skin becomes more vulnerable as we get older. Other contributing factors in my lifestyle like the sun, airplanes and numerous time zones within a month put the pressure on!
Lately I've noticed a different feeling in my eyes. Knock on wood, no visible signs of wrinkles yet but I'm not taking any chances. I've been a little more conscious of maintenance, especially around the eyes. Actually, now that I think about it, I've been applying eye gels and creams regularly since January, usually for that extra perk before I hit the gym, and sometimes before I head to bed.
While I've never used one particular brand when it comes to eye treatment, things may be changing. Jack Black, one of my favorite men's grooming brands, just recently unveiled its RxSeries, which features two products that really concentrate on anti-aging. Jack Black and I just "mesh." I've never had a problem with any of their products, and I like the fact that, although a big consumer brand, they're environmentally conscious and use natural ingredients.
The best thing about the Eye Rescue is that it contains Matrixyl 3000. As you may know, Matrixyl 3000 (two peptides) stimulates collagen synthesis and repairs skin and has been proven to be one of the most effective ingredients available to combat aging. I like the other ingredients (including several certified organics!) featured in this eye cream: caffeine (for that extra perk before I hit the gym); natural bamboo and pea peptides (this boosts the production of skin proteins, as well as enhances cell turnover); oat kernel sugars (helps lift and tone); and vitamins A, C, and E. There's also pomegranate extract and green tea.
I've just started using it and I'm impressed. There's no scent to it but if there was a scent, I would imagine it's a "protein" theme, if that makes sense. It's also quite rich and creamy. There's no telling at this point if this will keep up in two months. But from previous Jack Black experience, I'm not too worried.
