Reader reviewed and recommended: Neova Advanced Lift Eye Gelee
Marta recently sent me Neova’s Advanced Lift Eye Gelee and I’ve been using it faithfully morning and evening for the last three to four weeks. First impressions of this product were that the packaging is very functional and well-designed. The product is dispensed via a pump. I have a few lines under my eyes as I am in my late thirties and continue to look for an affordable “miracle” eye product. While I don’t believe that this product serves as my miracle, it is a good product for moisture, puffiness and some darkness issues one might have. I have not noticed the development of new lines and the ones I’ve had seem a bit softened.
The consistency of the product is mostly gel-like with a bit of lotion mixed and this combination is very soothing and moisturizing for the eye area. It soaks in rather quickly and the area around the eye does look moisturized. Neova’s Advanced Lift Eye Gelee does include a patented AHK Copper Peptide Complex which firms skin and decreases dark circles.
Some of the more notable active ingredients include acetyl hexapeptide-3 (also known as Argireline) which is a wrinkle relaxer, oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil which improves skin barrier functions, squalane which retexturizes and softens skin, camellia oleifera extract (Japanese green tea) which is an powerful antioxidant that calms and soothes signs of irritation, vitis vinifera (grape) seed extract which is a powerful antioxidant that protects from free radical damage, sodium hyaluronate which is a powerful humectant for the skin, and ubiquinone which is a powerful antioxidant that is also known as coenzyme Q10. The only negative ingredients I could find (keeping in mind that I am not as well researched as Marta) was Phenoxyethanol and Methylparaben.
Overall, based on the price, this is a good eye are treatment with a lot of really good beneficial anti-aging and corrective ingredients.
