I recently introduced you all to Solvaderm Juvabrite Skin Brightening Complex and it has become a critical step in my current skincare routine. Along with that product, I've also been using Solvaderm's Eyevage Age Defying Eye Cream. Anything that claims to be age defying usually catches my attention and this one also claims to be effective against multiple concerns of the eye area. Lines aren't as much of a concern for me as much as dark circles and I'm always looking for something that will vanquish them.
About the Brand: Solvaderm Skincare takes an integrative approach to skincare, combining innovation, education and safety into a simple, effective regimen dedicated to improving and preserving one’s skin health. As a forerunner of active phyto stem cell products, Solvederm redefines skin science by uniting the best of botanical active ingredients with the highest standards of science to create ground-breaking products.
Product Claims: Eyevage is a multi-action age-defying cream developed by leading dermatologists to address the issues that most commonly affect aging in the eye area. Concentrated anti-aging serum improves micro-circulation in the under-eye zone and lighten dark circles. Advanced firming complex infused with healing antioxidants and anti-inflammatories work to minimize puffiness and protect skin from environmental damage and oxidative stress. Ultra-conditioning moisturizers provide intensive hydration while working to banish fine lines and wrinkles.
Key Ingredients: Phytonadione, a skin-perfecting form of vitamin K that accelerates healing and repair. Arnica montana, an all-natural anti-inflammatory botanical extract that directly targets tissues in the eye area to help eliminate puffiness, swelling, and unsightly bags. Oxido Reductases, active enzymes that promote antioxidant activity to preserve skin health and combat the numerous cellular changes that contribute to aging. Soybean Protein and Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein,a dual botanical peptide complex that enhances micro-circulation in the skin surrounding the eye. Jojoba Seed Oil, a luxurious emollient that provides hydration and enhances the skin's natural ability to retain moisture. Apricot Kernel Oil helps fortify skin with a protective barrier that seals in moisture. Squalane, a highly effective skin-balancing compound that provides intense hydration along with wrinkle-fighting and line-banishing effects. Hyaluronic acid, an ultra-light hydrating compound that actually helps to restore skin's youthful composition and properties. Eriobotrya japonica extract, a nutrient-rich, fruit-based balm that's packed with anti-aging antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to fight puffiness and swelling seen in under-eye bags.
Packaging: A clinical looking BPA free plastic bottle with an airless pump dispenser.I really wish more products were packaged like this since it's hygienic and maintains the integrity of the product.
How to Use: Use a pea-sized amount of Eyevage and dab around each eye, following the orbital bone (eye socket). Apply morning and before bed every day.
My Thoughts: Out of the bottle,this eye cream is an off white color with a faint sweet scent which is fine with me. The silky and creamy texture makes it easy to apply and it sinks into the skin nicely without any irritation. While using this product for over two weeks, my eye area has been well hydrated and smooth. I also think it kept my undereye circles and puffiness at bay. With continued usage, it is supposed to fade dark circles which is big for me. There have been eye creams that have caused millia (tiny bumps) to develop around my eye area and that has not been an issue with this one. I almost like this as much as the retinol eye cream I've been using and I would actually consider making a switch. Most of the eye creams I usually buy are in the $50 - $60 range and this is a little more but I wouldn't mind spending a little more since this is a professional grade product made from organic extracts especially if it rids my dark circles with continued use.
