My first introduction to the Mirai Clinical brand was when I received their Purifying & Deodorizing Body Spritzer in my 3B Beauty Box last year. This genius product is a natural deodorant that uses Japanese persimmon extract to eliminate body odors on the spot. It also has green tea and astaxanthin which extend the effectiveness of the persimmon extract for all day freshness. It quickly became a favorite of mine both because it works and is chemical-free. In fact the Japanese persimmon extract doesn't penetrate skin, but works to dissolve odors on the surface of the skin. I'm also a fan of their Purifying & Deodorizing Body Wash with Persimmon and I talked about why in this post.
I was reintroduced to Mirai Clinical again towards the end of last year when they were exhibiting at a press event I attended. I met the exuberant CEO and Founder Koko Hayashi and got to learn more about about the brand and the exciting new product launches they had coming up. Mirai means "future" in Japanese and this name is apt since the brand provides innovative solutions for both skin and hair health.
Mirai Clinical makes it their mission is to develop and introduce unique beauty secrets from Japan though ground-breaking and exceptionally effective products and practices for skin health. The company which is headquartered in California works with an internationally comprised team of experienced skincare and medical professionals that carefully and thoughtfully source and select product ingredients which are pure and safe and those that can effectively boost the skin's own natural ability to hydrate, nourish, and defend. The company advocates a simplified approach to skincare based on the holistic practice of "Less is More" whereby the less products you use, the healthier your skin. These skincare practices include:
Less quick fixes
Mirai Clinical Revitalizing Eye Cream is naturally formulated with cherry blossom extract and a range of Japanese botanicals which work to reduce inflammation and help to reduce puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, and age spots. Silk tree extract (alibizzia) helps to lift sagging eyelids, which can be caused by long hours of exposure to computer screens. This cruelty-free product is free of sulfates, synthetic dyes, fragrance and preservatives.
This eye cream is housed in a heavyweight glass jar and a spatula is included for dispensing and application. The cream itself is scent-free with a rich almost gel-like texture and a little goes a long way. Once patted on, it does take a few seconds to sink in and once it does it leaves my eye area feels silky and hydrated. After using it twice a day for over three weeks, I can say that I'm impressed with how well it moisturizes and also how it addresses puffiness and dark circles. This was notable on a few nights when I didn't get my best sleep and I didn't wake up with swollen panda eyes. I would have to credit this eye cream since I was not using the Aveda Tulasāra Wedding Masque Eye at the time. Who knew cherry blossoms had such wonderful beauty benefits.
This is such a unique eye cream. It's natural formulation is both gentle and effective. And it's really cool that it also offers a lifting effect since not many eye creams out there actually address eye lid sag. This is something my mom mentioned to me as a legitimate aging concern that I will have to watch out for in the future. I've been doing a light upward massage when I apply this product onto my orbital bone area as a measure of prevention. There is nothing I don't like about this eye cream other than I wish that it were packaged in an airless pump.
Mirai Clinical Revitalizing Eye Cream with Japanese Cherry Blossom ($54 for 18g / 0.6oz) is available for sale through Amazon and Miraiclinical.com.
What do you think of this eye cream? What's your favorite eye cream?
