SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Eye, $113
It’s everything you love about the brand’s popular Facial Treatment Essence and more – for your eye area. Chock-full of the star ingredient Pitera, this promises to strengthen skin’s protective barrier, while repairing damage caused by oxidation and UV rays. Meanwhile, white lupine and alfalfa plant extracts reduce the look of fine lines, puffiness and sagging, while treating dehydration.
Cle de Peau Beaute Concentrated Brightening Eye Serum, $120
This deals with anything that causes dullness around the eye area: slow cell turnover, dryness, roughness, melanin, poor blood circulation etc. How? Its exclusive Illuminating complex, black tea extract and hyaluronic acid help plump and brighten skin. Meanwhile, the whitening complex 4MSK and cinnamon extract reportedly improve lymphatic drainage to help get rid of toxins and lighten pigmentation.
Shiseido Ultimune Eye, $98
A weak immunity spells trouble for skin, and this boasts a trio of botanical ingredients that supposedly prevents that: ginkgo, perilla and thyme, known for their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial benefits. Its exclusive Ultimune complex is said to strengthen Langerhans cells (think of them like skin’s security guards that protect it from damaging elements) so that the fragile skin around your eyes can defend itself against attacks. Another plus: the rose-and-lotus fragrance blend, which relieves stress, another immunity-killer.
