I love skincare and I am always excited to try new products. Over the years I have been reading as much about anti-aging and skincare as I can. I have bought a few too many products to try delaying the onset of wrinkles so it was like opening a Christmas present when I received the Moana Eye Firming Gel! I am 57 years old with slightly dry skin and fine lines around my eyes, getting deeper as years go on.
Before I started using the Moana Eye Firming Gel, I noticed that my right eyelid was starting to droop over my eye. What a dreadful look! I applied one pump of the Moana Eye Firming Gel all over the eye area and patted it in. It is quite a lot of product, but it penetrates the skin easily without greasiness. It feels great on the skin and smells fresh. I could feel the firming action around my eyes. It was Impressive! After four weeks there was an improvement with my drooping eyelid. When I woke up in the mornings, it looked so much better. I still have wrinkles around my eyes but the area looks fresher and lifted, almost like my eyes are more open.
I have a few lines around my top lip — an area that has always bothered me — and I tried the Moana Eye Firming Gel on that area as well. After applying the Moana Eye Firming Gel, the lines around my lips looked plumped and so much better. What a surprise! I have tried the eye cream both under my serums and moisturizers and on top of the serums and moisturizers. It made no difference and it still had that same lifting effect either way.
Moana skincare is an organic cosmoceutical skincare range and does not include petrochemicals, parabens, artificial colouring or synthetic fragances. This product has an impressive list of ingredients. The key ingredient is red seaweed. The red seaweed extract, Glycoplus, comes from the coast of New Zealand and is rich in glycans. Glycans helps with the delay of ageing, fighting against free radical damage, hydrates the skin and even encourage collagen production. Special natural ingredients also include manuka honey, which helps with cell regeneration, calms irritated skin and is an antioxidant. Mamuka black fern helps to retain water in skin, stimulate cell growth, keep skin hydrated and repair DNA strains. The special combination of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, peptides together with the glycans, can also have great effects on the eye area.
I was really satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to refine their fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area.
