Here’s the bad news: As women age and hormone levels drop off, skin tends to sag and loose volume. Thankfully beautymakers are addressing hormonal aging with products that focus on volumizing and supporting the production of collagen and elastin. The Vichy Neovadiol Gf skincare line, created for women over 50, is formulated to resculpture and hydrate skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The new Vichy Neovadiol Gf Eye and Lip Contours ($47) brings this technology to the eyes and lips in a sleek, futuristic looking applicator with the aim of plumping and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
The gel-like cream is housed in an sculpturally beautiful device, that in my opinion, belongs in an Apple store. It’s white with an innovative cooling applicator that reminds me of Clinique’s Lid Smoothies, the perfect solution for a busy summer day. The Eye and Lip Contours cooling applicator is delicious to use and is perfectly angled and contoured with gently rounded corners to fit the curvature and structure of the under eye and lip area.
With hormonal aging, the skin sags and loses its basic density and structure, all thanks to the decline in hormone production. The signs of hormonal aging are linked to a decline in proteins that are found naturally in the skin, which are responsible for tissue reconstruction and skin structure.
Based on thirty years of research, the technology behind this tube is powerful, and includes the moth bean, native to India, as a key ingredient. It is light, non-greasy, pleasant to use and includes a illuminating effect to make skin look younger. This product retails at CVS/pharmacy and Beauty Club members can get $5 in rewards with every $50 purchase.
How it Worked
I prefer to use Neovadiol Lip and Eyes Contours more around my lips than under my eye area, just because the cooling applicator feels so refreshing near the lips. The first thing you’ll notice is the cool feeling and added hydration, and with a few applications, my lips did appear more firmed. While it is not designed to treat under eye circles, Neovadiol does refresh and make you look rested—an ideal product to use after a long night.
If you use it over time (give it at least a few weeks), you’ll find a difference, trust me. The application strategy is to spread a little amount of cream around the lips and massage it in, using a backwards and forwards movement, sliding the applicator from right to left and from left to right. For the under eye area, apply with circular movements.
