I love all things Zelens. They just agree with my skin well. For the most part the products do what they say they will do. This was my second jar of Triple-Action Advanced Eye Cream. Details below per Zelens:
A state-of-the-art eye cream with targeted triple action. Powered with a proprietary complex of high-tech ingredients and soothing botanical extracts, this moisturizing cream helps to visibly reduce the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
- Works instantly to soothe and revitalize the eye area
- Eye area looks luminous and more lifted
- Signs of fatigue and aging around eyes are visibly diminished
The texture is a thicker gel cream style. It’s not greasy at all. Your makeup won’t slide off after using this. It’s thicker so it does take a little time to absorb. This eye cream has silicone so it has a slippery texture. This makes it fabulous for day use as your eye makeup will glide on with ease. So it functions as a eye makeup primer as well. I love this eye cream for day use.
So did it work? Yes, it did reduce the under eye puffiness and fine lines around my eyes. It also lightened my dark circles some. Honestly, I’ve had dark circles forever and they have more than one cause. Heredity, dehydration among lack of sleep and other causes. Nothing, not even the most expensive eye creams and serums, have ever made it go away completely for me. Some things creams just can’t fix. I’m a nurse, I’m realistic and have to remember that no eye cream is a miracle worker and makes heredity go away. However, products can help and reduce skincare issues.
I found it hydrating enough for my dry eyes, yet not greasy nor too heavy. It had the bonus of being an eye makeup primer as well. It’s packed full of peptides, probiotics, caffeine for puffiness and other hydrators. I would repurchase.
This octapeptide (chain of 8 naturally occurring amino acids) is a safe, completely non-toxic alternative to Botulinum toxin. It blocks the release of neurotransmitters necessary for muscle contraction and wrinkle formation and thus reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
This tetrapeptide (chain of 4 naturally occurring amino-acids) demonstrates anti-swelling properties with proven efficacy in reducing the appearance of puffy eyebags. It inhibits the activity of the enzyme called Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE), which is responsible for the increase in blood pressure. Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5 reduces water retention and promotes lymph drainage, while protecting collagen from cross-linking (glycation). Additionally, it helps to reduce leaking of fluids from the capillaries into the tissue, which can cause formation of puffy eyes.
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7
These two peptides reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes by eliminating blood-originated pigments in the skin that are responsible for dark circles. They also have an anti-inflammatory effect and help reinforce firmness and tone of the skin around the eye area.
This sesame-derived protein demonstrates an instant tightening effect with a noticeable reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Effectively provides long-lasting moisture.
Probiotic complex: Extracted from bifidobacteria, this complex helps to protect the skin from UV damage and boosts the skin’s defense (immune) system.
Glycokines: Natural sugars (oligosaccharides) obtained by a biotechnological process. Stimulate synthesis of hyaluronic acid and elastin and thus help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid: An important natural component of skin. Zelens uses a low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid with unique moisturizing properties. Hyaluronic acid boosts skin moisture, promotes skin elasticity and fills in wrinkles to help reduce their appearance.
Marine collagen: A native collagen of marine origin. Moisturizes and plumps the skin.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol): An antioxidant with a key role in the protection of cellular membranes from damaging free radicals. It is the major antioxidant in the epidermis with strong protective effects.
Caffeine: Helps to improve blood flow (circulation) and thus reduces the appearance of under-eye puffiness and dark circles. Caffeine also possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce visible signs of photo-aging.
