Curel Moisture Eye Zone Essence – with Ceramide

The final step in a great skin care regimen is an eye treatment.

For me, I’ve recently taken to Curel’s Moisture Eye Zone Essence. I’ve tried Clinique’s eye cream previously but found it not quite suitable for my skin. Curel’s Moisture Eye Zone Essence is really light weight. It’s the non creamy types which I reckon is suitable for ladies in their 20s or teens.

Eye cream or gels are useful to provide mositure and to nourish the delicate skin under and around our eyes. Moisturizers and other lotion should not go anywhere near your eye, it is too thick to penetrate our eye area and hence millia can occur. Millia in a non scientific definition is a “little white bump that may look like a tiny pimple, however, it is actually a pore clogged with lotion that skin has grown over, which needs to be surgically removed. As you can see, that is not what you want! Therefore, use an eye cream or gel day and night, it can help reduce puffiness, bags, wrinkles, lines, and darkness. If you are in your twenty’s an eye gel would be best. For 30 and above a cream or serum would suit your needs.

Besides blinking close to 10,000 times a day, the eye area is also at the heart of many of our expressions – so it suffers from a lot of micro-contractions.

Plus, this area naturally has only a small amount of sebaceous glands, so it is prone to dehydration and fine lines, only by applying antiaging eye cream can solve this problem. In fact, from age 30 onwards, crow’s feet and expression lines can appear, and get worse over the years.

Before it is too late, take steps to minimize those wrinkles.

If like me you have single eyelids or if your Ophthalmologist told you that you had oily eye lids (mine did much to my dismay) then congratulations the skin around your eyes should not age as soon the normal person.

Note: It’s good practice to apply any products on your eyes with either your pinky or your ring finger. The pressure exerted by other fingers are stronger and not good for your delicate skin around your eyes.

Here’s what the essence looks like- it’s a light weight water based gel it seems (unlike those super rich creamy ones)
