Among this season’s crop of new eye creams, Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Contouring Eye Lift ($150) stands out like a rose among the daisies.
This slim, slightly larger than a cigarette eye lift offers much more than your average jar of cream. It’s a contouring eye lift with a super silky finish that glides underneath the eye with a cool tip (perfect for the summer months). The formula contains Black Tourmaline gems as well as proprietary Life Re-Newing Molecules™. In clinical trials, 92% of women said that they felt an instant tightening.
The tightening effect is thanks to a blend of three advanced polymers including acacia Senegal tree, sweet almond, and goji berry extracts. Advanced lifting technology also helps the ingredients to penetrate better and to boost collagen production. The tightening technology works with the skin’s natural “mechanical tension” or cellular attachment.
What would an eye cream be if it did not address puffiness? The formula is infused with refined gold, which helps prevent irritation. There is a special soothing de-puff complex with algae and golden chamomile extracts that help lessen those inflated eyes over time. As though the tourmaline was not enough, the formula contains South Sea pearls to provide extra radiance reflect light.
You can find many depuffing eye treatments on the counter, including Clinique All About Eyes, Perricone Firming Eye Cream, and Do Not Age with Dr. Brandt Triple Peptide Eye Cream. What is different about Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv is the contouring benefit, its precious ingredients, and extra radiance formulation.
For $150, it might put a dent in your wallet but a smile on your face.
