The eye contour is a notoriously delicate area where the skin needs more pampering and hydration than any other part of the face. This is why, in the warmest period of the year, it would be better to go with fresh and light products, which give a boost of hydration without making the skin greasy.
Intral – De-Puffing Anti-oxidant Eye Cream
A light cream that is like a soft veil, ideal for the summer thanks to its immediately refreshing effect: it keeps redness and swelling under control thanks to the formula enriched with chamomile, hawthorn and peony.
Smoothing Eye Treatment Anti-Fatigue
A texture that is more full-bodied (but not less fresh) for those moments when we need a real hydration bomb, to soften the eye-contour, blur dark circles and smooth fine lines: a real life saver.
Moisture Boost Eye Cream
From the Korean expertise comes a refreshing gel enriched with hyaluronic acid that promotes hydration, with rich marine ingredients that are also a source of moisture: seawater and plankton deeply quench the skin, with a fresh texture ideal even for the hottest days.
Pink Blur Hydrogel EyePatch
For an on-the-go eye treatment, fast and easy to incorporate into our everyday routine, the hydrogel patches are very comfortable and practical. Each patch contains extract of black elderberry, blackberry and blueberry, rich in vitamin A and C and with antioxidant properties, which refreshes and softens the tender area around the eyes.
In summer, simplicity and freshness are a must to promote a thoroughly moisturized and plump face, without making it oily and without breaking the delicate balance of the skin. Our team always selects products that are suited for the specific needs during the hot days (because, yes, the “seasonal change of wardrobe” should also concern skincare) and these ones are among the regenerating and refreshing products we can swear by.
