This is the question that has haunted me for a couple of years now.
I have always been very diligent about taking care of my skin but for some reason I never thought that eye cream was something that I needed to have in my daily regiment as a twenty year old.
As it turns out, I was wrong. It is never too early.
After having a talk with my esthetician, she pointed out that the two places that we usually neglect are the under eyes and the neck area, hence why those are the two places that reveal our age the most.
I take care of my neck area with my nightly and daily moisturizer, but my under eyes have been neglected for years. Ugh, I am so sorry face!
I went ahead and asked my esthetician to select the right cream for me. She is very particular about the products that she sells to her customers and is a huge fan of Vivant Skincare, so I figured, why not, let me give this a chance. Below is a little excerpt about what the company and it’s skincare is all about.
For nearly 50 years, Vivant® Skin Care has been dedicated to providing potent, medically-proven dermatological therapies. There’s no fluff, just purposeful skin care solutions. Founded in 1990 in California by the late Dr. James E. Fulton, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., co-developer of Retin-A®, and his wife Sara Fulton, Vivant Skin Care is a clinical skin care line rooted in Fulton’s patented vitamin A therapies. The line was inspired by Dr. Fulton’s personal struggle with acne and life-long study of and research in skin care. The resulting 35 + formulations comprise our skin care products designed to treat skin conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation and aged skin.
I am absolutely in love with this product! I have always had a problem with dark and puffy under eyes but this light weight cream does wonders! I have noticed a huge difference in both areas. This product is made with Grapeseed oil, Caffeine, Oligopeptides and Retinyl Propionate. A little of it goes a long way and it absorbs into the skin immediately. There is absolutely no wait time before you can start applying your other skin products and/or makeup. Also, I have noticed a huge difference when it comes to using concealer. I have significantly less creasing under my eyes.
As an amazing esthetician, she has gotten to know me well enough to know that I would love this product as well. I am very big on lipsticks and lip balms but never loved glosses. This was always a big issue when it came to lip plumpers, since every highly adored product is glossy. Well this is a lip balm. AH-MA-ZING! It is made out of Petrolatum, Oligopeptides, Perfluorodecalin, and Benzyl Nicotinate. So the Petrolatum is what hydrates your lips while all of the other ingredients increase collagen production and blood flow to the lips (which is what makes them plump). I can put this under lipsticks without changing the look and feel of them. That my friend is winning in my book! My lips are so plump and the best part is that they are so hydrated! This obviously requires continuous use in order to see the results, just like all other lip plumpers, but since this is a lip balm, it does not require any extra work from me.
I am extremely impressed with Vivant Skincare and will continue using these two products. The results are absolutely everything I have expected and more, but the part that really amazes me is the ingredients. They are not infused with unnecessary fillers that could be harmful to me. These are my newest additions to the Holy Grails. <3
