BEAUTIFY: Creme de la Mer

Beauty is all about the eyes- that’s what my mother used to tell me when I was younger.

And certainly, aging gracefully is a lot easier when you’ve still got that sparkle in your eye- thanks to a first rate cream. Over time, our skin starts to not be able to reproduce its cells so easily as age, pollution and modern lifestyle start to take their toll. That’s when it’s time to take outside action yourself, as you can’t rely on genes and youth any longer.

Having reached world fame in just two years; Creme de la Mer’s Eye Balm Intense is no fad. The innovative balm includes a triple concentration of Creme de la Mer’s Miracle Brothwhich makes for a cooling sensation on contact, which then penetrates the skin’s surface to help accelerate the skin’s natural renewal.

Not that you need any more convincing- as Creme de la Mer can live on reputation alone- but I’m going to tell you a little more about what makes it just so special…

Creme de la Mer’s trademark Miracle Broth were first conceived by Dr Max Huber nearly half a century ago, when he created the revolutionary bio-fermentation process that turned sea kelp, vitamins and minerals into a potion of transformative skin renewal.

Just one miracle in this Eye Balm? Certainly not. This little pot also includes energy-rich Deep Sea Red Algae- known for its piezoelectric properties, which in everyday terms means the ingredients expand within the skin’s surface- leaving you with re-energized skin. No puffiness, irritation or fatigue to be seen.

Alongside the The Marine De-Puff Ferment, the Eye Balm also includes The Lifting Ferment- after all what’s an eye cream without a lift? Since the eye is the most vulnerable place to drop due to its shape, it is at a natural disadvantage to be the feature which gives away your true age.That’s why it is so vital to use a cream which reinforces the skin’s natural support system and has the ability to strengthen the thin under-eye architecture by supporting the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

The Eye Balm Intense achieves this by including Marine Peptide Ferment, Phyto Ferment and Mineral Ferment.

With Creme de la Mer, the application is almost as important as the product- and that’s why each pot of Eye Balm Intense comes with a cooling silver-tipped applicator that is designed to pick up just the right amount of the product needed for each application.

It’s all in the eyes. And this balm creates a firmer, more lifted look whilst improving the skin’s clarity and brightness.

Sounds too good to be true? Having been voted the winner of the Stylist Skincare Awards 2012 for Best Luxury Eye Cream, I’m certain you can take my word for it. But if not- there’s only one way to find out- after all, Christmas is about spoiling yourself and the others around you.
