VIVANT SKIN CARE Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream | Review

November 25, 2015 1 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today I'm reviewing
Wink.  Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream  is from VIVANT Skin Care, whose potent, medically-based products were formulated by James E. Fulton, M.D., Ph.D., the co-developer of Retin-A ®.

Product description:

Vivant Skin Care Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream - 0.5 fl oz (14.8 ml)

Combines vitamin A propionate, peptides, hyaluronic acid and kojic acid to soften fine lines, brighten dark circles, and reduce puffiness, giving skin a more youthful appearance.



Price:

$57.50 
from Vivant Skin Care website and Amazon

Skin Types: 

All

Directions: 


For best results, begin using Wink every other day for the first two weeks, progressing to daily use and eventually, as your skin tolerates it, twice daily. This formulation is gentle enough to be used on any sensitive area, such as the neck and décolleté.

Key Ingredients: 
  • VitaminA diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet and protects against further photoaging and free radical damage.
  • Oligopeptides stimulate the production of naturally-occurring collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin, which are lost with advancing age.
  • Kojicacid, derived from Japanese mushrooms, lightens the skin and prevents pigmentation.
  • Caffeine brightens dark circles and eliminates puffiness around the eyes.
  • Aloe is an anti-inflammatory agent that leaves the delicate eye area soothed.
  • Oatextracts soothe the skin, locking in moisture and further protecting the skin.
  • Grape seed oil helps tighten the skin and is a potent antioxidant and hydrator with anti-inflammatory properties.

The Benefits of Vivant Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream:

A high-performance formulation of antioxidant and free radical-fighting ingredients, Wink combines Vitamin A with Oligopeptides, caffeine and grape seed oil to soften fine lines, lighten dark circles, and reduce puffiness.  This concentrated, age-defying formulation also leaves skin looking brighter, giving the skin a more youthful appearance.

My experience:

Vivant Skin Care Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream has a very thick consistency.  It has a very pale pink colour and comes in a plastic container with a pump dispenser.  It has a light scent, and does not irritate my eyes.  The cream is not greasy and it is absorbed very quickly by my skin.  I love that!

The skin around my eye area really does feel softer, smoother and tighter.  However, I cannot really say much about dark circles and puffiness under my eyes because I don't have that problem.  I recommend Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream to anyone looking to upgrade or begin an eye care regimen.  It can also be used during the day underneath a concealer with SPF This eye cream really does give my eye area, and my face,  a more youthful appearance.  It really works!

Natural remedies for dark eye circles

February 11, 2013 6 Comments

Hello everyone!

Do you have dark under eye circles yet you do not want to try expensive creams?  Then save your money and head to your kitchen!

Natural remedies for dark eye circles:

Tomato paste
Mix 1 teaspoon of fresh tomato juice and ½ a teaspoon of lemon juice.  Apply it gently on the skin under your eyes with a cotton ball and let it rest for 10 minutes.  Rinse thoroughly with water.

Cucumber or Potato
You can apply any of these two on your eyes to diminish darkness and swelling.  Slice the cucumber or grate the potato before putting it onto the skin around your eyes.  You may also use the juice of either one of them and dab it on the skin with a cotton ball.

Tea bags
Simply put on a warm or cold teabag on each of your eye and let it rest there for a few minutes.  


Almond oil
Regularly massaging the under eye area with almond oil is one of the best natural remedies for getting rid of under eye circles because it promotes circulation.  Leave the nourishing oil on your skin overnight.

Ice cubes
This will instantly reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness around the eyes.  Read The beauty benefits of ice for more information.

Crushed mint
Fresh mint has a cooling effect which immediately soothes tired eyes while getting rid of dark circles.  Put crushed mint leaves over the skin around your eyes and let them rest there for few minutes.  


Tips:
  • Stop smoking!  Smoking contributes to poor circulation.
  • Drink around 8-10 glasses of water a day to promotes proper circulation of blood around your eyes.
  • Aside from the remedies mentioned, it is also important that you get enough sleep.  
  • Be reminded that not all of these remedies will work for you.  So I suggest you try out a few and see which ones work best!  
  • These remedies will not make your dark circles disappear overnight.  So, be patient and continue the natural treatment for at least a few weeks.  
  • In certain individuals, dark circles can only be reduced but cannot be removed completely.
I hope you find this helpful!

Eye cream or no eye cream?

October 04, 2011 0 Comments
Have you ever wondered if you really need to use an eye cream?  Can you use your daily moisturiser around the eye area? 

Some say it’s an absolute must to use an eye cream, while others disagree.  My personal opinion is that it depends.
In theory, you should use a different product that is formulated for sensitive skin around the eye area.  Facial moisturisers are formulated for the skin on the face and therefore are not ophthalmologist tested (i.e. not specifically tested and certified as safe to use near the eyes), and therefore can also cause irritation.
Then again, some facial moisturisers are safe to use all over your face and neck, including the eye area.  When this is the case it is clearly written in the product’s instructions.  If that’s not the case, with your daily face cream, you still need to use an eye cream to keep the sensitive skin around your eyes properly hydrated.
Besides, eye cream can help you target certain issues you may have now or later in life.  You should use an eye cream if you have issues like eye puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles around the eye area (crow's feet).  A regular face cream will not help you with these issues.
Since the skin around the eyes is typically one of the first places to start showing wrinkles, adding hydration to the area by using a specific eye cream can never hurt.

How to apply:

Gently dab a small amount of eye cream around the eye area with your finger or applicator.  Then, pat the area around the eye to help ensure that the eye cream you initially spread is absorbed into the skin.  Do not rub in or stretch the skin.  Always do this very gently!

Tips:

If you are using a face cream to treat acne, that cream should not be used around the eye area.  

Also, if you are using a face cream with resurfacing active ingredients, again, never use around the eye area because those ingredients are too harsh for such sensitive skin.

Do you use an eye cream?  Which one is your favourite?  I want to know your opinion.
