Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm for Eye and Lip Area



I had really high hopes for this eye cream but unfortunately it hasn't lived up to them. I've been using it twice daily for three months and see no difference in the condition of the skin around my eyes.  

Why I liked it: It has a lovely, soft berry scent and a thick gel texture. It sinks in quickly and is nice to apply. It's very gentle and non irritating. I used this all through hay fever season without any problems. Usually during hay fever season I can't put anything on my eyes as they are so sensitive.

Why I didn't like it: It wasn't hydrating and made no difference to the appearance of my fine lines.

Dermalogica says: Recommended for the smart management and treatment of skin aging. Combat visible lines around the eye area with this powerful firming complex. Vitamin A and antioxidant vitamins C and E improve elasticity and smoothness while scavenging free radicals. Organic silicone's shield vulnerable skin and seaweed extract helps firm skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines.


Would I buy it again? No.

Ingredients: cyclopentasiloxane, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, dimethicone crosspolymer, cetyl ethylhexanoate, polyethylene, tocopheryl acetate, camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) extract, corallina officinalis extract, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, flavor, ascorbic acid, glycyrrhetinic acid, boron nitride, retinyl palmitate.

  1. i've always been skeptical about anti-wrinkle, anti dark circle and firming creams. mainly because most of their results entail a 95% satisfaction level based on a sample of 50 women domestically. most of the time they don't work as advertised, i wonder what happened to the collagen in the bottle! and the other half of the time we trick ourselves into thinking that it "might" be working. *sigh*
