The Bottom Line: If you are looking for a gentle eye gel with lifting capabilities, this might be worth checking out for you.
Back when I was having terrible eye problems when I used to use Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) problems, my eyes had become very sensitive.
I had already stopped using the SLS products but my eyes were still very sensitive to almost every product I would try to use on them.
I needed an eye cream, and something with firming action was preferred, but none of the creams I had tried were helping me at all. I was having such problems with burning and watering while my eyes were trying to heal from the SLS usage, that I was about ready to give up.
Then I saw Peter Lamas on a talk show. They were doing a makeover show using people from the audience. They had them use the products for three days and then come back on the show and give their reactions.
Peter Lamas has been a makeup artist to the Hollywood stars for a long time, and he said that he developed his products to meet the needs of a Hollywood client base who need natural based products with the least chemicals, and also who often like to have a little makeup on when they go to bed or work out at the gym so they are not caught off guard.
I was very impressed by the reactions to the PRO VITA C line of skincare, and along with that was an eye gel.
The main point of this line is that it is supposed to be more natural in origin and less apt to poison the body with problematic chemicals.
They ran an online special, so I ordered the entire kit.
WHAT IS LAMAS BEAUTY PRO VITA C EYE MAINTENANCE GEL LIKE?
LAMAS BEAUTY PRO VITA C EYE MAINTENANCE GEL is in a small glass jar. The sides are very thick and it has a white plastic cap on top the screws on.
Inside the jar is a translucent light amber gel which is very thick. The jar comes in a white box with green, brown and black writing on it.
Here is what LAMAS BEAUTY SAYS ABOUT THIS GEL:
Pro-Vita C Eye Maintenance Gel pad with Firming Action
Pro-Vita C Eye Maintenance Gel is an antioxidant-rich, ultra-gentle moisturizing eye treatment with highly absorbable, concentrated L-Ascorbic Vitamin C, one of nature's most powerful antioxidants, to increase circulation, firm sagging tissues and reduce undereye puffiness and dark circles. It continuously breaks down free radicals formed by daily sun exposure and the environment before they can alter the texture, smoothness and firmness of the fragile eye area.
Natural Additives Pro-Vita C Eye Maintenance Gel also contains humectants to attract and hold moisture to the delicate skin around your eyes, plus nature's own healing botanicals to visibly firm, nourish, strengthen and moisturize: Green Tea Extract to drench the skin in antioxidants and stimulate its immune system, Licorice to lighten undereye circles and reduce signs of fatigue and Lavender Oil to soothe and comfort.
The benefits of Pro Vita C Eye Maintenance Gel can be enhanced with the daily use of Pro Vita C Moisturizer SPF 15 for your skin and the nightly use of Pro Vita C Vital Infusion Complex.
DIRECTIONS: Smooth gently all around eye area, morning or night, after cleansing. Do not use in combination with any other products around the eyes. Doing so may cause irritation.
I got my entire kit for around $100 and it included the PRO VITA C VITAL INFUSION COMPLEX, the PRO VITA C MOISTURIZER SPF 15, and the PRO VITA C EYE MAINTENANCE GEL.
This eye gel is very gentle. However, if used with other eye products around the eyes, it can burn and/or make the eyes water.
At first my eyes watered a bit, but after a week or so of using it, I did not have any more problems. I also stopped using other eye products. I had been attempting to find one that did not cause problems, so I had a lot of *eye detoxing* to do.
I did not use this gel daily- but only once or twice a week. I still use it occasionally now, as my eyes do not get that dry and I really don't need a lot of eye products.
When I do use it, I notice that my skin is very soft and moisturized in that area. I see a mild lifting and puffy reduction, but not as drastic as chemical high end products. This gel works more over long term than immediately. I do not have dark circles so I can not comment on that claim of the product.
I want to mention that you are not supposed to put this on the lid- most eye products do not recommend that you put them on the lids.
Also, I keep it away from my waterline on the bottom too. Gently patting it in, the gel is absorbed very quickly and leaves my eye feeling very fresh and not sticky or oily.
There is a slight fragrance which is a fresh lemon verbena type fragrance. It is delightful to use as I am a lemon verbena freak.
I am not sure exactly how totally natural these products are (there are some chemicals in them that some people might question), but I do know that it is far better than a lot of the other stuff I have used for skincare in high end lines.
Their customer service department in the past is not always completely helpful, but that might have changed by now. I have had some good results with some of the calls and emails that I have had, so give it a try.
