I use a seaweed mask often and also eat seaweed to get its full benefits, so I was glad when I was offered to try VOYA Bright Eyes ($68).
I am a big fan of products containing seaweed, as it offers so many benefits. VOYA uses hand-harvested seaweed in all of its products. It is rich in vitamins and minerals; it can be eaten or applied directly to the skin as a strengthening agent and exfoliant. I'm in my 50s and I try to take good care of myself, inside and out.
Seaweed has also been used in homeopathy, as well as in Thalassotherapy due to its therapeutic abilities. People who seek natural remedies to ailments also use seaweed as part of skin-care regimens, since it has the ability to revitalize, repair and moisturize the body and skin.
Spas have long used seaweed baths for cleansing and exfoliating qualities. Seaweed, when applied to the body, draws excess fluid and waste products from the skin. It also acts as a cleanser for dead skin cells and other impurities on the surface.
Seaweed has many vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes that are antioxidants with many skin-healing and rejuvenating properties. Vitamin A (beta carotene/retinol) and vitamin C work together in maintaining collagen, a protein necessary for the formation of connective tissue in the skin. The phytonutrients helps in drawing the blood to skin surface, thus make it supple, smooth and radiant.
VOYA Bright Eyes is full of natural ingredients. Has a nice consistency. You need only one small pump to put around the eye. I have been using it morning and at night. It absorbs quickly and you can feel it working. It relaxes the skin around the eyes immediately and I can see skin tightening. After almost five weeks of usage, there is still more than half bottle left. I see my laugh lines softening. I have this habit of sleeping on my side and often with my face buried in the pillow (a bad habit), as a result my right eye has a deep wrinkle outside the eye. After using VOYA eye serum, this line had faded a little. The area around my eyes seems brighter and my eyes look more open. I’ll continue using it and am sure if only I can sleep on my back whole night long, I’ll get better results.
Overall, it is a good product. The list of ingredients is long but mostly natural. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good, natural eye product.
