NEOSTRATA Brightening Eye Cream



NEOSTRATA Brightening Eye Cream is a dark circle corrector that is formulated to reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles, brighten and firm the look of tired eyes. It targets a restored look of firmness and moisture for a smooth, bright appearance. 

About the Brand
NEOSTRATA® is defined as a combination of “new” and “layers,” which perfectly describes our skincare philosophy; we believe visible results come from renewing layers of the skin. Our comprehensive approach is two-fold: skin resurfacing and comprehensive rejuvenation.

Ingredients
A Multi-action complex of Antioxidants, Peptides, Algae extracts, and Stabilized Vitamins C & E PHA blend  (Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid)


Color, texture and Consistency
Pale buttery yellow in color, this is a light weight cream, that is not too thick or too dense. It is a soft, non-greasy formula.

Scent
Fragrance Free

Application
I use it twice a day. I just use my ring finger to dot the tiniest amount of product and press it in, without tugging or pulling. The under eye area is thin and sensitive, so better to be extra cautious and mindful. For extra relaxation, I went over the cream with my eye cream applicator. It is a tiny, steel ball that feels cool when it comes in contact with the under eyes. I did this only when I had extra time at hand during the PM skincare routine. The little massaging action is both fun and relaxing for the tired eyes. Do give it a try sometime.


Feel and Effect under the Eyes
This is a very light weight cream. It spread very easily, without feeling heavy. I did not leave any residue. Also, did not get into my eyes, making it all cloudy and difficult to see. It softened the under eye area and moisturized it beautifully, thus making the fine lines appear less prominent. My under eye area appeared smooth and hydrated. I don't have puffiness under my eyes, so that is an area I cannot comment on. As far as the under eye darkness is concerned, it did help me. I noticed considerable brightness, though it did not completely erase the darkness, which I doubt any product can do, because some part of my issue is hereditary

It didn't cause MILIA

Milia are small, non-inflamed cysts that develop on the skin. These tiny bumps have very obvious white heads, and develop when keratin gets trapped just below the skin's surface. Milia are not red or inflamed. Most commonly, they occur due to dead skin building up and getting trapped in the pores near the surface of the skin. Heavy cream is one of many factors.


Packaging
Comes in small, plastic bottle, with a pump and a cap to cover the pump. I am glad that it is not in a jar or tub, but sometimes, it gets difficult to control the pump and I end up getting way more product than needed. It is not a big deal, because after few uses, I got the hang of it. A bottle would last me a while because tiniest amount of product is needed. 


Final Thoughts
I have genetically dark shadows under my eyes and these get really prominent when I don't sleep well on time or have a little erratic schedule. The cream did help lighten the under eye area. There was an overall brightness and radiance. The real magic though was the texture. It made the under eye fine lines less prominent and smooth them considerably. My eye area appeared firm, super hydrated, moisturized and nourished. With constant use, I am hoping to see considerable difference in the dark circles as well. But for now, this is a lovely eye cream and it does not causes MILIA. A super important factor for me when I choose an eye cream. Definitely worth an investment.
