Eye Serums With A Difference
esmi Skin Minerals have had a busy and impressive year. Not only have they maintained and grown their fabulous customer network, they have released a whole swathe of new products. I have been using esmi Skin Minerals for many years and wanted to do a little write up on their brand new Intensive Eye Serums - as these gems work.
An eye treatment is such a simple step that can achieve some amazing results, but it can often be the part of our daily routine that we forget. While we do our daily skincare routine, and follow it down with a cup of coffee as we run out the door, esmi’s new eye serums make sure your eyes also get a caffeinated wake up call!
What's in the range?
The eye serum range is made up of three different intensive treatments: Anti-Ageing, Brightening, and Hydrating. All three serums contain CAFFEINE, EYEDELINE and Hyaluronic Acid (to the contrary of what you may think Hyaluronic Acid is extremely gentle and is a water loving ingredient helping to plump and hydrate your skin cells).
The EYEDELINE is a marine plant extra which balances the flow of fluid to the eye area, reducing dark circles and puffiness. It also boosts collagen & elastin production which smoothes and strengthens the contour lines around the eye.
HYALURONIC ACID is used by esmi in a number of their products, and for good reason! Hyaluronic Acid increases hydration by 25% in 2 hours, holds 1000x its weight in water, and is excellent at plumping, smoothing and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s one powerful ingredient!
We feed our body CAFFEINE to keep it going, so why not our eyes? The caffeine stimulates blood circulation, aids in the reduction of dark circles and puffiness, is a vasoconstrictor (it narrows blood vessels), as well as having soothing, anti-inflammatory, skin tightening, anti-oxidant properties.
What’s the difference between the three serums?
While all three serums contain the above properties, they each focus on a different area of treatment.
The Anti-Ageing Eye Serum is specifically developed for the delicate skin of the eye area. It contains tiny RETINYL PALMITATE VITAMIN E SPHERES which convert to retinol in the skin when in contact with skin enzymes. This serum is a powerful anti-ageing treatment and excellent at reducing wrinkles. The Retinyl promotes healthy and plump new skin cell turnover, and as a result is also (gently) exfoliating.
Who is it best for? Suitable for all skin types, especially with concerns of ageing and wrinkles.
*CAUTION those who are: pregnant, lactating, or trying to become pregnant are advised that this ingredient is a precaution.
The Brightening Eye Serum is a pigment reducing and brightening treatment developed for the delicate skin of the eye area. It contains tiny VITAMIN E SPHERES which are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and supports cell function & skin health. These spheres burst when gently massaged into the skin.
Who is it best for? Suitable for all skin types, especially with concerns of pigmentation, sun damage, ageing pigmentation, dullness, sallowness around eye area.
The Hydrating Eye Serum is a gentle and hydrating treatment developed for the delicate skin of the eye area. It contains tiny Q10 SPHERES which are a strong antioxidant, and assist in combating fine lines & wrinkles.
Who is it best for? Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive. Great for those without too many concerns but want healthful skin in eye area
