Hi lovely eyes,

has anyone told you that? I had! The feeling is wonderful and made me feels like I have the prettiest eyes on the planet ^^

On a clean face after toner and facial serum, before essence, moisturizer and sun protection.

The staff from Lancome told me the product can be used anytime, including after makeup, but I’ve tried using after makeup and it melts my makeup away plus the applicator become tainted, so, I stick to my how to on the Tips above, use it during skincare time for a younger, prettier and perkier looking eyes.




Hello everyone ^^

Kiehl’s has a new item for the eyes, the powerful wrinkle reducing eye cream. Come from the series of Abyssine.

-*-


Details from www.kiehls.com:

Powerful anti-wrinkle eye cream

• Skin fortifying under-eye cream, with a combination of micronutrients, Copper PCA and Calcium PCA
• Significantly improves wrinkles, texture and elasticity.
• Formulated for the delicate under-eye area

-*-



A unique eye cream which help reducing the lines and seems like the focus is anti wrinkle with the firming abilities. Like any product it is not an instant effect but to be used at least 2 weeks and 1 month to see the significant differences.

The thick Arctic ice blue colored cream is almost scentless too.

-*-


And like any other wonderful product out there, the eye cream has to be used with all means possible, no staying up late, get enough sleep, maintain a healthy habit and diet as well.

I use the eye cream after serum and right before moisturizer. Using a ring finger I use around a rice-sized. Then blend the cream between two ring fingers and gently dab the eyes with them. They melt nicely and caress the skin surrounding the eyes.

-*-


Suitable for those above 25, this lightweight cream is perfect to be used 2 times daily, day and night. Occasionally I use it for my lips too ^^ It made them lines free. Put it in a fridge for a cooling and de-puffing the eye bags. 

Thank you Kiehl’s Indonesia.


Hello everybody,

after decades of successful iconic item called the Advanced Night Repair, a serum for the face, finally Estee Lauder launch one for the eyes area last month (Read it: HERE).

-*-



Here is the product, the box and the details attached to it. A 15 ml pump bottle with nothing but goodness for the eyes area. The minute I saw the product, somehow I found it believable. Maybe due to it’s precedent product known as ANR, or maybe because of all those research behind it.

-*-



Use it before an eye cream, so yes, it’s an eye serum. Twice daily and enjoy the benefit. The product has been with me for a month now and here’s my review.

-*-



I’m not using it alone, but with her faithful companion to guide her through. The Advanced Night Repair serum for the face. I’ll compare their texture and see them standing side by side to fight the aging out of my skin. Since now there are two ANR, one for the face and one for the eyes, let’s call it ANR face, ANR eyes, face and eyes, oh whatever, you got the drill 😀

-*-



Here they are, in terms of texture, color and physical appearance, immediately there are some differences. From the clear slightly brown/orange easy to digest serum to the light creamy white ANR eyes. However, both have that almost the same memorable scent, the one that only available in the ANR world. A subtle herb earthy slightly aromatic floral scent.

-*-



And both feels so easy on the skin, one for the facial skin feels so good on the skin and the one for the eyes as well. It may looks creamy but it is away from heavy and thick. Instantly melts and cover the eyes area with the liquid, penetrates and absorbed by the skin. The feeling afterwards is smooth, soft and relaxed.

-*-


From the press release and details given, I know that ANR eyes are made with full research and knowledge of the eyes original condition. Where it needs a pampering action from all those blinking, laughing, and all our facial eyes expression. And I know for sure I can’t escape using anti aging products, these last few days I have difficulties in sleeping on the right time.

Perhaps due to the surgery and the stitches or maybe it’s just something that all of us has experience. Stress from work or daily life. I meant, we all want a nice, slow paced life with zero pressure. But in reality almost all of us can’t have that luxury, the result? We are exhausted and the skin gets to it’s toll as well.
 

Lines, wrinkles, dehydrated skin is amongst the things we’ve seen the minute we step into the 30. Or for some 25. ANR with a remarkable formula which not just fix the skin on top but all through the DNA.

There’s when and why we need help, and ANR (face and eyes) are 2 of my recommended items on my list. List? Yes, there are a lot of good products out there, anyone just need to find the perfect item exactly matches their skin. It’s just happens that these 2 matches mine and a whole lotta people out there ^_________^

-*-


Use the eye serum from ANR to help the aging off from your eyes from the early age, I’m talking about 18-20’s. Since the signs of aging hits the eyes first. Always use the ring finger from the outer to inner side of the eyes. Try to avoid rubbing the eyes, it’s not just causing wrinkles (since the eyes area are 40% thinner than the face) it’s also might cause infection to the eyes. Avoid using other products for the eyes which has thick texture and fragrances since it can migrate to the eyes. The ANR eyes may be used alone without an eye cream on top of it.

ANR eyes also help reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.

And if needed or wanted, use it with ANR for the face.

-*-


By using them both for a complete Advanced Night Repair experience continually and routinely (minimum of 2 weeks daily application and see the result on your skin) I’m looking younger overall and gradually.

PS: Don’t forget to use the rest of the skincare products (cleanser, toner, moisturizer and sun protection) and always use a clean hand when applying.

So far I can use these products with other brand and range, mix and match accordingly to one’s skin type and needs.

Thank you Estee Lauder Indonesia.

Dear ladies,

last week, I was invited by Estee Lauder for their new item available for Indonesia market. The Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion. I’ve been a fans of the Advanced Night Repair Serum for more than 5 years now and to complete the set, it comes with the new treatment for the eyes.

-*-

The event held at Seibu and as always they do pay attention to details making sure the media gets a full idea on the product.

-*-


Here are some details given on why we need to pay special attention to the eyes area:
·         The eye area is one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging
·         Due to the exceedingly thin and delicate nature of eye area skin, it tends to be more vulnerable to manual irritations such a rubbing, squinting, blinking and expressions
·         It’s important to use a product developed for the eye area because face moisturizers can be too heavy for the eye area or may contain emollients and fragrance that can easily migrate into the eye and cause irritation
·         There are fewer oil glands in the eye area
·         Skin around the eye area is 40% thinner than facial skin
·         The eye area skin is also five times more porous than facial skin[1]
·         On average a person blinks 12 times per minute – about 10,000 blinks in an average day
·         A person smiles over 50 times per day – creating “smile” lines or crow’s feet around the eye area
·         Dark circles and puffiness around the eyes can be influenced by many factors, including genetics, allergies, the environment and lifestyle, such as lack of sleep or smoking
·         It’s important to start taking care of the eye area at a young age because by treating the eye area first you can help postpone the look of aging
·         When the temperature drops, eye area skin can get even more fragile, so it is even more important to keep the area hydrated and the moisture barrier strong
·         Exposure to pollution can lead to premature signs of aging around the eye area, like fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and uneven skintone
·         t’s best to apply eye products from the outer corner and work your way towards the inner corner because that’s where the first lines start to appear and need the most repair
·         The ring finger naturally tends to apply less pressure than other fingers, which makes it the ideal finger to apply eye creme with eye serum

ESTéE LAUDER
INTRODUCES
Super potent, fast-penetrating eye serum with advanced repair technology that helps significantly inhibit ozone damage  
Dramatically reduces the look of every key visible sign of aging
Embracing the brand’s core philosophy that “Every Woman Can Be Beautiful,” Estée Lauder understands that beautiful skin is in every woman’s DNA. As pioneers in the field of genetic skincare research with the 2009 launch of Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex, Estée Lauder continues as a cosmetic leader in “skincare repair.” Building on a heritage of expertise in the repair category, now Estée Lauder Research unveils new research leveraging our understanding of the profoundly damaging effects of pollution, specifically ozone (O3) on skin’s DNA and aging. Inspired by these findings, Estée Lauder introduces Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion,a super-potent, fast-penetrating repair serum with all the repair benefits of Advanced Night Repair, made specifically for the delicate eye area in a new lightweight, refreshing texture. This potent eye serum infusion is formulated with advanced repair technology shown to help inhibit up to 100% of ozone damage after exposure to high level of ozone[1]. The result is a dramatic reduction of every key visible sign of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skintone.  Boasting over twenty patents worldwide, this serum is intensely hydrating and helps to keep the entire eye area looking radiant, rested and silky smooth.
POLLUTION INCLUDING OZONE EQUALS DNA DAMAGE
Research shows that today more than ever before, aging environmental assaults such as pollution and UV rays can cause significant damage to the skin and its DNA. In particular, studies show that ozone is a growing worldwide concern, especially in urban environments. Formed by the interaction of UV light with the Nitrogen Dioxide contained in smoke, car exhausts and fumes, ozone is a major concern for skin because it is everywhere, can penetrate quickly and is very reactive. Skin cannot be protected against its visible damaging effects. Based on these findings, Estée Lauder Research conducted a cutting-edge new testing methodology designed to simulate ozone levels in urban environments where ozone pollution is most prominent. Carried out in an O3 Chamber developed for The Estée Lauder Companies, the findings proved that ozone has a profoundly negative impact on skin cells, leading to a decrease in natural energy and an increase in free radicals, DNA damage and inflammation.  In fact, after just twenty minutes of high ozone exposure – equivalent to a walk outside in many major cities in the world – DNA damage increased by 272%[2].  This damage can lead to premature visible signs of aging such as fine lines, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skintone.
POWERFUL REPAIR TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DELICATE EYE AREA
Understanding that the skin around the eye area is 40% thinner than the rest of the face and therefore particularly vulnerable to environmental damage, Estée Lauder Research pioneered an Eye Physiology Study to build on this knowledge.  Findings showed that the eye area skin is also five times more porous than facial skin[3]and thus more prone to environmental assaults such as ozone and pollution passing through the fragile layers of the skin.  To help boost skin cells’ natural ability to repair DNA damage in this particularly vulnerable area, NEW Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion’s fast-penetrating, lightweight serum texture contains three powerful, high-performance technologies:
·         Anti-pollution technology: Comprehensive repair technology including encapsulated Alkyl Guanine Transferase (AGT) helps to continuously repair the appearance of damage to the eye area caused by every major environmental assault including ozone, pollution and UV rays.

·         Exclusive Chronolux™ Technology helps support the natural synchronization of skin’s repair around the eye area at exactly the right time. Consequently, signs of aging that can first appear around the eyes are reduced over time.

·         Prevention and hydration: A high concentration of soothing anti-irritants plus a proprietary blend of antioxidants and high levels of proven Hyaluronic Acidwork together to create the optimal environment for the natural protection and repair of the delicate eye area, thus helping reduce the look of dark circles, puffiness and crepiness around the eye.

TESTED AND PROVEN
Using a new in vitro testing methodology carried out in the O3 Chamber, Estée Lauder Research exposed skin cells for twenty minutes to simulated levels of ozone found in different urban environments where ozone pollution is most prominent.  For skin cells treated with the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusionrepair technology before being exposed to high level ozone for twenty minutes, results showed it helped to inhibit up to 100% of ozone damage[4].
NEW SERUM TEXTURE FOR THE EYES
dvanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion is an intensely hydrating eye serum that delivers an immediate surge of moisturization, leaving the eye area feeling soothed and refreshed, creating the optimal environment for eye area skin to repair and stay young and healthy.  Potent enough to be used as a stand-alone eye product, this unique lightweight serum texture can also be layered with an Estée Lauder eye creme for additional targeted benefits.
Recommended for all skin types. Dermatologist-tested. Opthamologist-tested.
Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion will be on counters May 2013  Suggested Retail Price: TBC

I say those info found to be very interesting and impact-full on me.

Here’s more info on the product:

ESTĒE LAUDER
NEW ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR EYE SERUM INFUSION
Q&A with Dr. Nadine Pernodet, Ph.D.
Executive Director of Skin Biology, Research & Development
The Estée Lauder Companies
1.       What is ozone?
Ozone (O3) is formed by reactions to nitrogen oxide and volatile organic compounds in the presence of sunlight.  The organic compounds are emitted due to human activities such as motor vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions, gasoline vapors and chemical solvents.  Hot weather and sunlight accelerate this formation process, lending ozone the nickname of a “summertime air pollutant.”

2.       Where is ozone most prominent?
Ozone is everywhere, however levels do vary across the globe.  While ozone helps protect us from the sun’s harmful UV rays when in the stratosphere, when it is on ground level it can reach toxic concentrations and be harmful to skin.  Typically, heavy industrial areas or urban zones have higher ground-level ozone than rural areas, though winds can carry ozone pollutants hundreds of miles away from its original source. 
3.       We have known about ozone for years. Why is it particularly important today?
Ozone is a growing worldwide environmental problem.  For example, the standard level set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency is currently at 0.075 parts per million (ppm) averaged over eight hours.  However, ozone can reach toxic concentrations of even 0.8 ppm, especially in the summer and in some urban environments.  Studies for urban temperatures over the next 70 years project that temperatures could increase above current levels, which could lead to an even more serious increase of ozone pollution[1].  Given that much of the population is living in urban areas, there is a clear need to address the visible impact that ground-level ozone and pollution can have on the look of skin.
4.       What effect can exposure to ozone have on the skin?
Ozone has a profound negative effect on our skin cells and can increase free radicals, DNA damage and inflammation.  This can lead to visible signs of premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skintone.  Additionally, skin around the eye area is 40% thinner than skin on the rest of the face, which makes it particularly vulnerable to the environmental assaults that cause DNA damage.  To understand what this means, we pioneered an Eye Physiology Study and found that the thinness of the eye area skin makes it five times more porous than skin on the rest of the face[2].  The unique physiology of the eye area skin is so thin and porous that it allows many everyday assaults, such as ozone, to easily pass through.  Inspired by these findings, we developed new Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion which has a serum texture that allows for fast penetration of surface layers of the skin.
5.       Can you explain the O3 Chamber in detail?
The O3 Chamber is a cutting-edge new testing methodology that was developed in collaboration with a university.  The chamber features different compartments that can be calibrated at any controlled levels of ozone to mimic ozone levels that have been measured in major cities around the world.  We studied skin cells exposed to both medium and high ozone levels for a time period of only twenty minutes (which is equivalent to a walk outside in some major cities worldwide), saw a 165% increase of DNA damage to skin cells exposed to moderate ozone levels (0.4 ppm) and an increase of 272% after exposure to high levels of ozone (0.7 – 0.8 ppm).  However, when we added the key patented repair technology in Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion to skin cells, in vitro testing showed it helped to inhibit up to 100% of damage induced by ozone after two hours[3].
6.       What is new about the texture of this serum?
Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion is Estée Lauder’s first eye serum.  It is specially formulated with a lightweight repair serum texture that is highly refreshing and fast-penetrating.  It delivers an immediate surge of moisturization and can be used as a stand-alone product or because of its lightweight, fast-penetrating texture it can be layered with your Estée Lauder eye creme for additional benefits. 
7.       What is the best way to apply this eye serum?
Apply eye serum morning and night using ring finger. Gently tap serum under eye area from inner to outer eye corner. The tapping motion is gentle and should always move in an outward direction toward the temples.
8.       Can I layer this eye serum as I do with my face serum?
This eye serum is moisturizing enough to be used on its own, similar to an eye creme, however if can also be used with your Estée Lauder eye creme for additional benefits.  For example, you can pair Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion with:
·         Time Zone Anti-Line/Wrinkle Eye Creme to address lines and wrinkles
·         Resilience Lift Extreme Firming/Sculpting Eye Creme to address lifting/firming
·         Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator to address dark circles and puffiness

And on the table there’s ANR, the serum, cream and eye serum. I’m thinking of these series has now become a complete set to help maintain a youthful look all the way to the DNA. Yes, I was thinking all of these while decorating the glasses. Most of the time, we are to busy ‘decorating’ our skin with makeup that we forgot to ‘fix’ what lies underneath.

-*-


These flowers looks so pretty and they didn’t dressed up at all, the hydration keeps them plumped and alive. The nutrients may also need to be provided so the flowers may grow beautifully.

So does our skin.

-*-


From within with consuming the right diet and from outside by using the correct product. I’m trying the eye serum on my hand and it does feels light and hydrating. It looks like the skin ‘inhale’ the serum in an instant.

-*-

-*-


The event held in front of SOGO dept. store at Plaza Senayan.

-*-

Before the event, I have a quick touch up using Clinique makeup ^__^

-*-


The white and simple design of Clinique has been their signature for decades. Over the years Clinique not just rooting in skincare but makeup too.

-*-



Here are the chubby sticks \^0^/ highlights for the day. I love all their colors and wished I have all of them heehee, they are like grown up ‘coloring crayons’.

-*-


Ms. Tia, the MC has started. I better join her in the stage. She asked about my experience in using Repair Wear Laser Focus Eye Cream and the Chubby Sticks. Two sensitive area on our face which require special attention. Both get a wonderful feed back from me. The eye cream feels smooth on the skin and able to reduce fine lines in a matter of weeks and the lip balm with colors aka Chubby Sticks is a delightful balm for the lips. Cheerful colors and hydrating effect unlike other balms which in the long run will actually cause chapped skin.

-*-

-*-





A demonstration of how the process goes, anyone may come to the counter and ask for a free skin consultation. Then, like my sister on the above image, the beauty adviser will ask her several question regarding her skin’s condition, habit, etc.

-*-

With that famous chart from Clinique, the type can be determined. But, it doesn’t stop there.

-*-


Get ready to be magnified ^0^

-*-


A thorough skin check including putting the skin under the spot lights, touched by the staff and make the skin looks bigger so the pores looks obvious.

-*-

A series of products will be suggested just for her skin type, you can have yours too and don’t forget to check your skin on yearly basis, since sometime the skin does evolve.

Thank you Clinique Indoensia.


Hello ladies,

recently Clinique launch their Laser Focus series for the eyes, called Repairwear Laser Focus, the ads in the mag is really interesting, I remember those laser beam in the most futuristic way possible.

Look at this:

-*-



Like a very nifty fancy products isn’t it?! I’m definitely saying yes, I would love to give my eyes second chance in looking younger.

-*-



Smile. Now eyes get a second chance to look young. See your entire eye area visibly improved starting in 4 weeks. Then, we went beyond our usual clinical testing and invented a unique test to prove ‘smile lines’ around eyes disappear by 54% in 12 weeks.
HOW TO USE

  • Apply twice daily.
  • Use a gentle touch to smooth this silky cream all around your eyes.
  • Wear alone or under makeup.
  • Ideal with Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle & UV Damage Corrector serum.

-*-




The white cream looks dense isn’t it?! It’s not. I thought it would be so thick, creamy and sticky, but I found it to be light, easily used, and not sticky. The product is not as rich as I thought it would be so in term of texture, I’m quite fond of. For some reasons I always avoid eye cream with a thick texture as it will be sticky and rumor has it, they may starts milia seeds to grow.

I use the eye cream after cleaning the face + toner + pre serum and before facial serum.

-*-


By the ring finger and ring finger alone gently dab the eye cream with the lightest swipe possible so I wont add lines instead of removing them.

The cream will easily melt (almost like a gel) and absorbed by the skin. Curious? Come and meet me on March 23, 2013 at 2 PM at Clinique SOGO Plaza Senayan.

RSVP directly and print this invitation to get some Clinique Minis ^__^

See you there!

ZAP Eye Treatment


Hello everyone!!!

Last week we went to ZAP at Woltermonginsidi branch and try on some of their beauty treatment there. Probably it’s already no secret ZAP has open a beauty center (Click HERE), not just for hair removal but for other service relating to beauty. I’ve tried the eye treatment before and now, it’s my husband’s time to try. Yes, all the treatment is for any gender.


First, as usual, a consultation and skin diagnostic is done so the doctor may know which treatment suitable for client.


In an instant the computer tells us on the skin moisture level, pores, acne, lines and finally determine our skin’s age.

My husband has an oily skin with lines. So his skin’s age is older than his actual age.

Then the treatment is done on his left eye first. A cool gel is applied and the ‘rub’ by the tool is done gently. He doesn’t feel the sting like I do, so definitely it was just due to my condition of wearing contact lenses.

I can see his fine lines is reducing and the skin under the eyes appears firmer. The tool has just activating his collagen and will keep on working for 3 months.

 


It’s the right side turn. Same process, same time and same procedure.

After the both side is done the doctor gave him an eye gel which according to her was a light botox … ooohhh! It gives the eye bag a firmer effect instantly. The eye gel is a clear light gel, feels cool and does have that firming action on the skin. They recommend us to put it inside the fridge.






This is my husband’s before and after picture, the fine lines are reducing and the eye bag seems firmer. And he’s glad this treatment is super fast, not because he didn’t enjoy it but he’s a man . . . he feels uneasy on any treatment heehee but if he is please with this, I think anyone will too … (he’s fussy ^__–).

Thank you hubby for sharing your testimonial and give me permission to upload your images here.

Thank you ZAP for having us and see you all real soon!


Hi y’all!

I’m back with more love to the eyes ^0^

In finding an eye care, usually I become more selective and careful since it will be applied around the eyes and as a contact lenses user I avoided thick texture and those that easily glide into the eyes and cause blurry, or worse, irritation.

A lot of eye cream on the market are too oily and can cause some oily bumps under the eye that caused by eye cream. These bumps are known as milia. Please do avoid the eye cream that’s too dense, too rich, and hardly absorbed. The skin under the eye are different from the rest of the face, it is thinner, so it need special attention too and special care as well.

This is one of the product for the eye that I recently used which give the enough nutrition without being too heavy nor greasy.



Details from the packaging:

This eye cream contains 70% marine collagen and vitamin C to boost elasticity and whitening. This eye cream contains nano liposome, which is derived from marine collagen. It gets deep under your skin to enhance your skin’s elasticity. It also contains Vitamin C to give you a brighter and clearer skin tone. It improves the appearance of deep wrinkles that have been caused by aging, which appear around the sensitive areas of your eyes. It strengthens the elasticity and firmness of your skin. It brightens the dark circles under your eyes to give you a more youthful and radiant look.

How to use:
Before applying moisturizer, apply a small amount and pat gently around the eyes and allowing it to absorb to your skin.

The cream actually look like a gel when looked closely, a bit transparent, light and cooling too. Very delicate, soft and smells good. Soft flowery scent. I used around a rice size cream with my ring fingers and easily swipe them before tapping on the lower and upper area of my eyes. And sometimes uses it on my lips too when night times.

So far since I don’t have dark eye circles so I could not comment about the whitening effect but I like how it gently hydrate the skin around the eyes while giving them a firming touch. I use it regularly for better result (day and night).

Details from lancome-usa.com:

A dual action Volumetric Lift:
Lifting Action: sagging eyelids recover a young, lifted look.
Contouring Action: natural firmness is visibly regained and the eye contour appears redefined.
Dark circles and puffiness seem to disappear. Youthful eye contours return: skin is visibly lifted, firmer, and reshaped.

Benefits:
– Sagging eyelids recover a young, lifted look.
– Natural firmness is visibly regained.
– The eye contour appears redefined.
– Ophthalmologist-tested. Dermatologist-tested for safety.

My review:


I’ve been using this light creamy lotion for the skin around the eyes for the past weeks and I enjoy the gentle and soft feeling. So far from being too thick, rich nor creamy. That means’ no grease, oiliness or discomfort. I’m a contact lens user and an eye cream that’s too creamy will eventually ‘spills’ into the eyes and blurred my vision. This one, doesn’t do that.

On the image above the lotion seems pearly white, but after spread-ed between two ring fingers somehow reflect a purplish pinkish hue. Interesting!

The lotion quickly absorbed and leave no traces on the skin, the area applied seems softer, less stress and calm.

I don’t have dark circles, so I can’t testify about that particular issue, but the area seems firmer against the puffiness. Fine lines does reduced and maintain the youthful look, but my best interest is on how soft it is and the comfort of using it everyday.

Hi hi hi hi hi ^0^

I’m back with another make up remover and now it is from YSL.

For your eyes only…

Refreshing and non-greasy, this bi-phased eye cleansing lotion dissolves all make-up, even waterproof and long lasting, without leaving an oily film on the skin. Enriched with provitamin B5 and Chamomile extract, it protects and fortifies the eyelashes, while enabling you to apply make-up to even the most sensitive of eyes. Free of all traces of make-up, your eyes look bright and relaxed. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

The video shows how it cleans without any doubt but I can still feel the oiliness and a bit discomfort because of the oiliness, which later I need to use a cleansing facial foam to removes the oils. Except from that it’s all good.

Remember to shake the bi-phase product so it become one and moist a cotton pad with it. Then all the makeup will stays on the cotton pad and no longer at your eyes zone. It is gentle alright and highly effective but I’m not fond of the grease.
