Moisturizes eye area without making it greasy
I'm only 29, but ever since I was about 16 I've been fighting REALLY dry eye skin. Seriously - ever had your eye area flake and peel? If you have you feel my pain, if you haven't... well, it's not pretty. I have no idea why this happens (especially when, at 16, the rest of my face was over producing oil), but it does. Needless to say, most eye creams don't cut it. Retinol was the first ingredient that made a difference, and ever since I'm always looking for a good cream that I can wear day and night that won't make my eye area greasy so that I can still wear eye makeup.
CytoCell is wonderful in that regard. It did make my eye area a little greasy at first, but then my skin adjusted (and I used a little less until I found a balance) and now it absorbs beautifully and I can apply eye shadow and mascara nearly immediately. And using less makes it last FOREVER (8+ mos). I've also noticed a decrease in the fine lines around my eyes, which is the only place I feel I'm starting to wrinkle (probably as a result of the weird dryness). In terms of the dark circles, I have noticed a slight lightening; not much, but a little. That being said, I am of Portuguese descent and... well, dark under eye circles are kind of our thing so the fact that I noticed ANY difference is actually pretty amazing. I certainly haven't seen any difference with any other dark circle eraser product. And, the longer I use it, the more noticeable it is. I don't necessarily see a difference (i.e., it's not a miracle eraser), but over time I can see a difference in photos. It makes me excited to try the KS complexion correction line!
Overall, if you need a moisture boost that will combat fine lines and lighten your undereye area a little try this product! It's the product that turned me on to KS and I haven't met a product of hers I didn't like since.
