I started using eye cream when I was in college and it's a move that has really paid off. I'm still religious about eye cream and am always on the lookout for the latest anti-aging innovations. After all the eye area is one of the first to show signs of aging. the eye cream I'm currently using is NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy.
About the Brand: NeoStrata Skin Active is a comprehensive anti-aging system of potent professional products with active benefit ingredients that work synergistically to address the broadest spectrum of visible signs of aging. The NeoStrata Skin Active system is made up of high performance products formulated to deliver outstanding rejuvenating effects.
Product Claims: Contains a unique SynerG Formula 6.0 that employs a multi-mechanistic approach to building and plumping the deep layers of the skin for exceptional results. Apple Stem Cell Extract protects the longevity of skin’s own stem cells so your skin behaves like younger skin. Peptides stimulate matrix components to produce more collagen, and together with patented NeoGlucosamine® reinforce collagen’s surrounding support structure. The eye area appears more lifted, and crow’s feet are smoothed from the inside out. NeoGlucosamine® also inhibits a key enzyme in melanin formation, reducing the appearance of uneven pigmentation. Caffeine helps deflate puffiness under the eye, while hyaluronic acid acts as a natural moisture magnet. Vitamin E provides antioxidant benefits. The result is noticeably younger looking eyes. Ophthalmologist tested.

My Impressions: This eye cream has a really lovely silky texture that feels kind of like a cross between a serum and a cream. There is no scent which is always a plus. It absorbs quickly and hydrates my eye area pretty well even though it's been cold. I haven't had any issues with irritation and my skin is on the sensitive side. This cream settles in with a smooth finish so it works well under makeup. I've been using this twice a day for about two weeks and I feel like my eye area appears smoother and firmer. I don't think it's done much for my dark circles but I also haven't been sleeping that well lately. While this eye cream isn't inexpensive, the cost isn't prohibitive. I could see myself picking it up again if I start seeing some positive results on my dark circles with continued use.
NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy is available through NeoStrata. You can learn more about the brand through their site.
