Maturing skin and exposure to UV light can take a toll on the delicate eye area. If the eyes are not well-protected from damaging environmental stressors or properly hydrated, signs such as wrinkles, lines, puffiness, and dark circles may appear. When treating the eyes with targeted solutions, be reminded that the skin around the eyes is very sensitive and prone to irritation depending upon the types of ingredients that are applied and how frequently they are used. The recently released Illuminating Eye Gel by La Mer is said to instantly energize and awaken the eyes.
La Mer claims that with the company’s Miracle Broth™, the area around the eyes will be renewed, as the broth is supposed to restart the skin’s natural healing process. The Illuminating Eye Gel also includes what La Mer calls the Awakening Ferment. Evidently the Awakening Ferment is supposed to block out environmental stressors that cause the signs of aging.
The company claims that the Illuminating Ferment will help users achieve a youthful, luminous look. The product offers visible results the brand claims however, customer reviews have indicated that it doesn’t completely diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
Literature on the Illuminating Eye Gel suggests that the product has a smooth texture, is lightweight, absorbs well, and can be used with concealers without leaving behind a streaks. La Mer recommends applying the gel daily and it is supposed to be gentle enough to be used all over the eye area.
There are many ingredients found inside of the eye gel that you will find in many other brands with a lesser price point, including Caffeine, Jojoba, and Fruit Extracts. Published reviews on the eye gel are generally favorable with few complaints with the cost being the most prohibitive factor.
