Recently I read an article featuring 20 different people who lived to be over 100 years old. Each one was asked the secret to their longevity. While one randy old guy said ‘lots of whiskey and wild women’, what really struck me was how many people said red wine and chocolate were staples in their diets. I immediately thought of the eye cream I have been testing, sent to us by Dermaquest – Stem Cell 3D Eye Lift ($78).
Right inside the box is the message, “Red wine, chocolate and this serum are all full of antioxidants. Lucky you.” Red wine and chocolate are most certainly enjoyable means of getting those antioxidants – might as well have enjoyable skin care, too!
DermaQuest is a spa skin care line that has been around since 1999. They make professional and physician-only products, and are known for products featuring the latest in skin care technology. They have a slew of products that feature botanical stem cell technology, including a facial cleanser, serum, tinted moisturizer, and body creme.
What I really like about this eye cream is it gives an instant lift, and who doesn’t like immediate gratification? Even better, it keeps on working to ultimately give great results over time. Eye Lift is a cross between a cream and a serum. It’s a great morning eye cream because while it hydrates, it’s not heavy and doesn’t interfere with concealer or foundation application.
There are so many interesting ingredients in this elegant eye cream – just take a look at that list!! Botanical stem cells are some of the newer kids on the skin care block, and research suggests they are highly effective at reducing wrinkles and protecting skin from environmental damage. Another one of the main ingredients is capryllic/capric triglyceride, which is derived from coconut and is fantastic for repairing skin tissue. Red algae is another antioxidant that also works as an emollient, making this eye cream nicely hydrating for the undereye area.
In the quest to be healthy and look younger, it seems that it pays to drink a little red wine and have a little chocolate every day. It also pays to use a little eye cream – and DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Eye Lift is a great option full of cutting-edge skin care ingredients. – Lisa
