PRODUCT: Environ C-Quence Eye Gel
If you, like most women would love to diminish pesky crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes, here's a review of C-Quence Eye Gel ($75.99), part of Environ’s results driven Ionzyme skincare range. Created by plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Des Fernandes, this light gel formula is specially formulated for use on the delicate and sensitive eye area. And like all Environ products, it features Dr. Fernandes’ signature cocktail of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, additional antioxidants as well as peptides to protect the skin against damage from exposure to UV and other stressors of modern day life.
The gel contains three peptides - Argireline, Matrixyl, and Dermaxyl, which have been scientifically proven to be effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles. They work in synergy with vitamins A, C and E to give firmer, smoother, and healthier skin. It also contains soybean and rosemary extracts. While C-Quence Eye Gel fights the ravages of UV, take note, this product does not contain sunscreen. The company advices that you use a broad spectrum sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using the gel – or anytime – for that matter.
Usage of this light textured and odorless gel is easy – simply apply morning and evening around the eyes. It’s suitable for all skin types and ages. In addition to helping improve the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, the gel assists in moisturizing the area.
Environ skincare is available at med-spas and physician offices.
