Elemis: Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal

I am in constant search of an eye product to help reduce the fine lines surrounding my eyes plus lighten up the dark circles below them. I asked the Elemis team to suggest a product and this Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal Anti-wrinkle eye cream is said to be able to do the trick in as little as 28 days. 

As you know, I am a tried and true Elemis fan so I am excited at the thought of looking healthier and reducing the fine lines around my eyes. I admit that I get filler twice a year and still cannot get rid of the lines! I think hydrating that problem area just might be the solution I was looking for.

What Elemis says:

Clinically proven to visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye by up to 60% to reveal renewed, more youthful eyes.

Elemis, leading British spa brand and experts in results-driven, anti-ageing skincare introduce Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal, a next-generation eye cream with a breakthrough cream-gel texture and the newest addition to the highly acclaimed and globally successful Elemis Anti-Ageing System.

Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal (15ml/RRP $99.00) is an intensive eye cream containing a unique synergy of potent seaweeds and volcanic algaes that cleverly mimic the skin’s function for a visible restructuring effect on the eye area.

This revolutionary cream-gel texture is lightweight and glides on easily to dramatically smooth fine lines without overloading the delicate eye area or causing puffiness. Independent Clinical Trials verified that in just 28 days, this product visibly smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area by up to 60%*, plus 67%* of women experienced a significant restructuring effect.

*Elemis commissions Independent Clinical Trials using the very latest scientific laser technology and data analysis. For Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal the complexity, depth and isotropy of the Micro-Relief and also the complexity, depth and volume of wrinkle were tested.

Elemis expert Noella Gabriel explains…

“Tired, puffy and lined eyes can age your face beyond your years. Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal is a non-invasive alternative to drastic measures for reducing signs of ageing under the eyes. It will deliver maximum visible, anti-ageing results to the delicate eye area in just 28 days. Puffiness is reduced, fine lines are smoothed and crows feet softened to bring a visibly renewed youthful definition back to the eye area.”

The Elemis Product Development Team in conjunction with leading doctors and skincare specialists have formulated this revolutionary product incorporating a regenerative synergy of four potent marine extracts:

Padina Pavonica – a potent algae that creates crystals of Calcium which in clinical trials shows an incredible anti-ageing effect on human skin. The active ingredients stimulate the production of Glycosaminoglucans (GAGs), which are responsible for the moisturisation, firmness and elasticity of the skin.

Blue-Green Micro Algae – extracted from Lake Klamath in Oregon, the world’s most mineral rich volcanic lake. This extract also contains a high concentration of Vitamin B, Amino Acids, Potassium and Magnesium which helps the skin to resist the effects of ageing.

Chlorella Vulgaris – a green algae which protects the collagen and elasticity of the skin to deliver a firming and restructuring effect whilst reducing puffiness. It also contains vital Proteins, Pectids and Amino Acids which are also found in the skin making this unique algae highly compatible with the skin.

Methylsilanol Munnuronate – an organic derivative of seaweed which binds moisture in the Epidermis, enhancing cell regeneration and helping to firm and strengthen the skin. Its excellent Anti-Oxidant properties also help to prevent the acceleration of premature ageing and have a visible restructuring effect on the eye area. 

I am excited to follow up with my results as this product looks promising and results driven.
