About a week ago, I received a deluxe sample of NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy.
Last summer, I tried NeoStrata’s Exuviance Illumination Set, part of the brightening/even tone line of products. I liked the moisturizer and vitamin C powder and was impressed by the fact that the founding scientists discovered the role that glycolic acid can play in anti-aging skincare to create more youthful skin.
Ingredients, Benefits and Clinical Results
NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy is part of the Skin Active comprehensive anti-aging product line. It was created to attack crow’s feet and puffiness. It has a clinically-proven formula that helps build and plump up the eye area. It also lifts and firms. Because I have both crow’s feet and sagging skin above my eyes, I was very curious about this product.
NeoStrata summarizes the key product benefits as follows:
• “SynerG Formula 6.0 builds and plumps deep layers of the skin for exceptional results
• Peptides stimulate matrix components to produce more collagen
• NeoGlucosamine® helps reinforce collagen’s surrounding support structure
• Caffeine helps deflate under eye puffiness”
The major ingredients are SynerG Formula 6.0, Apple Stem Cell Extract, Peptides, NeoGlucosamine®, Caffeine, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E.
Clinical trials conducted under the auspices of NeoStrata among participants who used Intensive Eye Therapy twice a day for 4 weeks reported impressive results:
- 97% moisturizes/hydrates
- 97% easily absorbs
- 97% not irritating
- 94% eye area appears lifted
- 94% improves skin texture/smoothness
- 88% skin looks brighter, more luminous
- 88% fine lines are less noticeable
- 88% wrinkles (crow’s feet) are less noticeable
- 88% increases skin firmness/elasticity
- 87% reduces under eye puffiness
- 81% skin looks younger
- 77% reduces dark circles
I have only been using the product once a day for a week. The instructions said to use the product once a day during the first week of use, and then increase to twice daily. I haven’t had any issues adjusting to the formula.
What’s It Like To Use the Product?
NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy is a thick, milky gel that comes in a pump dispenser to protect the efficacy of the ingredients. You may know that I love and usually prefer gels, especially gels in pumps.
I get the feeling when I use this gel on the looser skin under my eyebrows/above my eyes that they feel and look tighter, just from the gel itself sort of holding the skin together.
Because of the requirements of Brandbacker, the blogging organization that provides the product for review, I am asked to post my review after a week of use rather than the 4 weeks I usually test skincare. That said, so far I love NeoStrata Intensive Eye Therapy. As I mentioned earlier, I received a deluxe sample, 0.10 g/0.35 oz., and I wish it had been a full size bottle! I definitely intend to continue using this product because it checks off so many boxes for me. And if I continue to see results, I will purchase it. 😀
I have sensitive skin around my eyes from dry eye and blepharitis, and I have NO PROBLEM AT ALL using NeoStrata Intensive Eye Gel. That for me is huge. As is the firmer feeling and look that I get when I use the product.
The full size of NeoStrata Intensive Eye Therapy (0.5 oz.) is priced at $79. It is available at physicians’ offices, on the NeoStrata website, and prestige online beauty retailers such as Dermstore, Lovelyskin.com, and Amazon. I have seen Exuviance products at Ulta stores, but I haven’t been there yet to check about the Skin Actives line. It is also available as part of the NeoStrata Comprehensive Anti-aging Kit.
