The area around the eyes is especially delicate and needs special care. When I created this formula I had so many objectives. I wanted this product to hydrate the skin around the eyes with out making the skin greasy. I also wanted a product that would help to tighten the skin resulting in reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, I wanted this product to help reduce dark tired eyes. In achiving this formula I used some key ingredients. Cucumber extract, rose hydrosol and Aloe Vera Juice are the building blocks for this formula for very specific reasons. Cucumber containg vitamin A, C and the mineral Silca. Cucumber has traditionally been used for eye care because of its colling and astrigent charateristics, Rose Hydrosol also offers excellent astringent qualities and offers a healty glow to the skin. Aloe Vera Juice helps to fight the signs of ageing, and is an overal healing agent. I believe this product has achieved all the goals I hoped for.
