Dermalogica Awaken Peptide Eye Gel Review | Lillee Jean Beauty
With highly active peptides, as well as natural actives, Dermalogica has released a new firming, as well as, hydrating eye gel. According to Dermalogica, this new launch is loaded with:
"...soothing Rosemary Leaf Extract that minimizes the appearance of puffiness and fine lines. Bioengineered Succinic Acid blend supports a more radiant appearance. Voandzeia Subterranea Seed Extract leaves skin smoother and more luminous." Dermalogica.com
Retailing for $56.00, and 0.5 OZ, I knew immediately, this type of product a little goes a long way. You never want to apply more than a pea-sized amount, as the ingredients are highly impactful, and meant to be used sparingly! See below for my further review.
energize puffy eyes?
Any product I come across to review skincare-wise, or even cosmetically, I check the ingredients. It's highly important, even before patch testing to see if anything might be a trigger point. Below is the final list of all additives, provided by Dermalogica on their website as of January 2022!
Water/Aqua/Eau, Polysilicone-11, Glycerin, Maltodextrin, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Butylene Glycol, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Caffeine, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Coleus Forskohlii Root Extract, Helichrysum Italicum Extract, Voandzeia Subterranea Seed Extract, Lactic Acid, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Pentylene Glycol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Diosmine, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Caprylyl Glycol, Laureth-12, Chrysin, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Sorbitan Oleate, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Barium Sulfate, Sodium Carbonate, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Hydroxide, Propanediol, Sodium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, Succinic Acid.
Apple fruit, rosemary leaf, lactic acid, caffeine, and tetrapeptide all stand out to me. Not allergic to any, I did a patch test on my chin-neck area, and, allowed the densely packed eye gel to absorb. With no reaction negatively given, I went ahead, with a pea-sized amount, and gently applied to my orbital bone, and, under-eye area.
How The Product Feels
The gel feels soothing, with no tingles, nor any irritation. Imagine a cooling sensation, that within about 5 minutes makes the area look "brighter", and "softer". A product that has instant effects, for me, I generally keep on my top desk, for in a pinch usage. I appreciated the slight bit of tack, because, anything of that texture, yields quite well when applying makeup. Makeup will stick better, look healthier, and more "plumping".
Overall I am quite pleased with this new Dermalogica launch! I do feel my eyes looked far more "awakened", and I appreciate the information given out on Dermalogica's part to educate consumers on skin health.
Going off of the provided claims:
Reduces the appearance of puffiness around the eye area
Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Visibly firms and smooths skin texture
I can confirm, a firmer skin texture, and smoother look was had. For points 1, and 2, I am 20, thus to comment on wrinkles, or severe puffiness, which I generally do not have, just dark circles, would be unfair. What I can say, is the texture under my eyes, from being dry, looked intensely HYDRATED, thus if any "lines" were visible, I had noticed none, after application. Truly Lillee approved, and a nice gel to help awaken and perk up eyes, in a lightweight formulation.
