A few months ago, I wrote about new probiotic skin care products recently
introduced by cosmec firms. I was skeptical at first, but have been very pleased
with customer and personal results. The products provide “good” skin bacteria
that help battle environmental stresses, acne, and other skin issues. Now, Merle
Norman has introduced Skintelligent Eye Moisturizer to add to the Skintelligent
line which currently includes a cleanser, moisturizer, and toner.
It is a hydro-gel that provides supreme moisturization with the added benefit of
probiotics that help your natural defenses. It reduces puffiness, and dark circles
while improving elasticity. If is safe for contact lens wearers. It is free of
fragrance, alcohol, colorants, dyes, oil, and paraben.
The packaging adds to its high-tech effectiveness. Its contoured metal tip cools
and massages as it applies the product. The messaging improves circulation and
absorption. Begin by placing a few dots below the eye. Gently blend across the
eye area, using gentle strokes of the applicator. Work from the inner eye out
towards the temple. Use your ring finger to smooth out any excess until
absorbed. Massage with the applicator between and above the brows.
Although it doesn’t need to be refrigerated, chilling helps to reduce puffiness
even more. Skintelligent Eye Moisturizer does not contain sun screen or
sunblock. If you are concerned about UV rays, use Anti-aging Complex Eye Cream
with sunscreen during the day and Skintelligent Eye Moisturizer at night.
