SkinCeuticals AOX+ Eye Gel Antioxidant Treatment / Product Review

Have you been staying up late? Well, with all that chronic stress and busy lifestyle, how can we possibly get enough rest? I stay up late quite often, and sure enough end up looking like a mess the morning after. The worst side-effect, of course, is the fatigued puffy skin around the eyes, and sadly, I couldn't find promising remedies until now.

A few weeks ago, I've been introduced to SkinCeuticals Advanced Professional Skincare and the AOX+ Eye Gel, an eye treatment to combat signs of fatigue. This daily antioxidant serum-in-a-gel is specifically optimized for the anatomy of our delicate and thin under-eye skin. The product contains an array of antioxidants like phloretin, L-absorbic acid (also known as Vitamin C), and ferulic acid to help protect the delicate eye area from stress. Other ingredients include Ruscus aculeatus (derived from an evergreen shrub native to Western Europe), which revives the skin and reduces the appearance of puffiness, and caffeine assists in reducing the look of under-eye bags.

So does it work? Ultimately, it does! It works wonders on tired and puffy eyes, and certainly helps with dark circles, giving the skin more of a fresh, vibrant, & illuminating appearance. Now a part of my daily morning routine, the AOX+ Eye gel is definitely worth a try. Plus, one can always benefit from using a daily antioxidant treatment, especially this particular one designed specifically for the sensitive and delicate eye area

This breakthrough serum-in-a-gel contains a synergistic antioxidant combination to help protect the delicate eye area from oxidative stress, while targeted actives revive under-eye skin and reduce the appearance of puffiness.
