The nutrient-intensive product that gives your eye area the love it deserves and the nutrients it’s depleted of... The honourable eye cream! Sadly, eye cream is often forgotten in skincare rituals, but when it comes to a hero age-defying product, this is one that you don’t want to skip! Our Firming Eye Contour Cream is one of Olivia’s favourite products from our range that she just can’t live without, it’s her holy-grail for timeless, bright eyes!
Why do our eyes need the extra love and attention?
The skin around our eye area is super delicate, thin and often a little more sensitive than the rest of our face. There’s also less oil glands in this area, so the skin doesn’t produce much sebum (the skin’s natural oil). It’s the first area of our face to show signs of ageing and craves high levels of hydration, which is why these signs and symptoms start to show a little more during the dry, cold winter season.
What are the benefits of using an eye cream instead of a face moisturiser?
While it’s tempting to skip an eye cream and just use a face moisturiser, you’re not giving your eyes the targeted treatment they need. To improve the skin concerns around our eye area such as dark circles, puffiness and fine lines & wrinkles (often described as ‘Crows Feet’), it’s important to draw on the power of an eye cream that is specifically formulated to address these concerns, that other areas of our face don’t experience.
The importance of choosing the right eye cream for this delicate area
Our Firming Eye Contour Cream is formulated for the thin and tender skin around the eyes, it does an incredible job at targeting the skin concerns while remaining gentle enough to soothe this sensitive-prone area.
Tip: We also recommend treating your lip area with our Firming Eye Contour Cream at the same time, as the mouth and top of the lip area is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.
The power of our unique and potent formula to target the signs of ageing
When we set out to create an age-defying eye cream that could fight free radicals, we discovered the most advanced benefits came from a unique combination of powerful Australian native botanicals and key actives sourced from nature. Our formula is nutrient-intensive and results driven with thanks to these ingredients that are designed for the eye area:
Quandong - Provides antioxidants to fight free radicals, Vitamin C for soothing & brightening and Rutin for to act as an anti-inflammatory and help to reduce puffiness.
Flannel Flower - Delivers a potent range of phyto-actives to moisturise and boost skin elasticity.
Gotu Kola - Helps to promote elasticity in the skin, while minimising dark circles.
Caffeine in Green Coffee Extract (Byron Bay grown) - Helps to improve blood circulation and clears stagnation in the skin’s barrier.
Hyaluronic Acid - The powerful anti-ageing ingredient that hydrates the skin, minimising the look of fine lines and wrinkles, for more lifted and firm eyes.
Daisy Flower Extract - Contains a powerful combination of polyphenols to help reduce the appearance of dark spots and brighten the eyes.
Squalane (plant based) - A naturally occurring lipid that mimics the skin's natural oils, giving it a big hydration boost, helping the skin appear more vibrant.
Sea Buckthorn & Rosehip - These ingredients are super rich in the age-defying vitamins A, C & E.
Our Firming Eye Contour Cream is a silky and lightweight texture so it doesn’t feel heavy on the eye area and absorbs into the skin straight away, leaving your skin firm and deeply nourished.
How to best apply the eye cream for maximum results
Always cleanse your skin first and then apply your serums, allowing them to absorb deep into the skin.
Apply a tiny, pea size amount of the Firming Eye Contour Cream to your ring finger, as this has a naturally soft pad and is the weakest finger, allowing for a soft feathery touch that won’t damage your skin’s natural elasticity.
To apply the cream to your skin, tap gently around the eye area, starting outside the corner of the eye and moving inwards. As this skin is so delicate, it’s important to move gently - don’t pull or stretch the skin.
If you have any excess on your fingers, apply it to your lip area to assist in minimising the appearance of fine lines.
- Lastly, to lock in all the moisture and further protect your skin, apply Ultra Rich Moisturiser.
