Could This Be My New Eye Cream?

My main concerns about my eyes are fine lines and dark circles. In my case, both issues are caused by more than just aging.  I have awful seasonal allergies which are a huge contributor to dark under eye circles.  Sometimes an antihistamine can help but usually I need a little more help than that.  Most of the fine lines I have are cause by sleeping on my side.  I've been trying for years to train myself to sleep on my back but halfway through the night I go back to old reliable and wake up on my side.

I haven't been loving my most recent eye creams but I just read about one from Erno Laszlo that sounds like it would fight both of my issues.  Here is the description I was given:
Firming eye care for all skin types

pHelitone Eye Treatment is an intensive therapy for the eye area. It features kojic acid to brighten skin around the eyes, vitamin C to reduce dark under eye circles and cucumber extract to soothe stressed skin. The result is noticeably younger-looking eyes.

Features and Benefits:
  • Three natural lighteners, kojic acid, caffeine and magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate help decrease melanin production to brighten eyes.
  • Mild beta hydroxy Acids, salicylic acid and lactic acid, gently resurface skin for more even texture.
  • Concentrated cucumber extract, an anti-inflammatory, reduces puffiness and soothes stress.
  • Antioxidant Vitamins C and E and essential fatty acids nourish parched skin.

I love an eye cream that is packed with antioxidants and caffeine and personally I like that some of the more irritating wrinkle fighters like retinol aren't in there.  Retinol may be the gold standard when it comes to turning back the clock but I haven't had the best reactions to it in the past.   I think I see a trip to the Nordstrom beauty department in my future!

  1. Do you know if this is available at most Nordstroms? I'm always look for a good eye cream to diminish my dark circles.

  2. Hi Chris! I haven't had a chance to go in yet but I think that the Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus websites sometimes let you check to see if a nearby store has an item. Thanks for reading!
