Lisa starts the day with suki® Eye Lift Renewal Cream
Everything about the EYE LIFT RENEWAL CREAM ($69) surprises me…it’s so different from other eye creams. It has a different texture, a different smell, a different color, and lots more. Most eye creams are white and fluffy. The Eye Lift Renewal Cream is a yellow/brown color (in fact it really reminds me of Grey Poupon mustard) and it has an unusual texture. It’s thin and included in the box is a wooden spatula for stirring prior to application. suki recommends that you dip your finger in but I would recommend using the wooden spatula for both stirring and placing some cream on a clean steel palette. That way there’s no risk of contaminating the eye cream with body oils and bacteria. Eye Lift Renewal Cream goes on quite dry, and suki recommends that you apply it right after toning while skin is still a little damp. I find that after applying it leaves my undereye area soft and silky-feeling.
The Eye Lift Renewal Cream has an interesting scent. It’s…well…. different.The fragrance is natural and it leans toward herbal, which makes sense. I really noticed it the first few times I used the eye cream, but then I got used to it. It doesn’t linger long, but if you are extremely sensitive to scents in your skin care you will want to check to see if the scent is OK for you.
The Eye Lift Renewal Cream is a workhorse that does many things:
I am impressed with the ingredients, which include Resveratrol which is an incredible antioxidant that brightens, tones, and strengthens skin; caffeine for de-puffing; and Vitamin C which is an antioxidant that stimulates collagen and new cell generation.
Each morning I pat a small amount under my eyes and on my lids. I also tried suki’s pro recommendations which are to refrigerate for intense cooling (really amazing for extremely puffy and dark undereye circle mornings!) and to use all over the face (loved it…if I had a bigger jar I would probably do this every day).
When I eat gluten…well, more like when I ‘overindulge’ in gluten by eating, says, 4 pieces of pizza, the next day my eyes are all puffy and swollen. So, in the name of beauty science, I purposely overindulged in gluten on a few days. Every time, after putting on my Eye Lift Renewal Cream in the morning, those tell-tale puffy eyes went away. Very impressive! Another interesting benefit is this eye cream seems to act as a makeup primer. I swear my concealer stays put even better, as does eyeliner and mascara.
I just love the Eye Lift Renewal Cream. I’ve gotten great results with the de-puffing properties and am seriously impressed with how much smoother and brighter my undereye area is. I wonder if Marcia is as crazy about her eye cream as I am about mine.
Marcia ends the day with suki® Ultra Protect Eye Balm
Two things that I can’t be without are my glasses and skincare specifically made for the delicate eye area. I am a big reader and have gotten to the point that I can’t read in bed without my glasses. And I know that I need to protect my eyes outside with my RX sunglasses. What I don’t want to do though is be reliant on my sunnies so that you can’t see the lines under and around my eyes.
That’s why I’m a big proponent of using skincare for my eyes. suki® Ultra Protect Eye Balm is different from the myriad of eye creams that I review because it’s not an eye cream. It’s classified as an eye balm but it’s also not quite the same as others I’ve tried.
Open the jar and the first thing you’ll notice is that it’s solid in form. Unfortunately you need to use your finger to get the balm out so be sure you have a cosmetic spatula around.
The second thing I noticed is the fragrance of the eye balm. It’s very herbal with all of its botanical ingredients. Now most people won’t notice that as much as I do so if you aren’t sensitive to fragrance then this won’t make a difference for you. The fragrance is natural so it’s not for me to say anything negative about it.
What you’ll also notice is that the small jar is glass. Don’t be like me and drop it! It made a big noise but it didn’t shatter when I did this. The jar did crack though so to save it I’ve had to transfer it into another jar.
But the most important thing you’ll notice is how wonderful this feels when on. It instantly turns into a lovely serum like texture once warmed on your skin. The hydration is terrific. This is why it’s different than other eye balms I’ve used. It’s easy to use, it doesn’t fight back. I don’t have to work hard to get the protection that this balm promises.
Since it wants to prevent premature aging and appearance of fine lines & wrinkles then it’s a good alternative to what you are currently using.
