I like to try new and different beauty products. As I have gotten older, eye creams have become a more critical part of my skin care regime, especially those made from natural ingredients.
Skin Beautiful Dermaceuticals (SBD) is the first advanced skincare system designed to cultivate and awaken both inner and outer beauty by incorporating daily affirmations, or Affirmacizes, into a daily beauty skincare ritual that fights the signs of aging and manifests in purely radiant skin. All Skin Beautiful Dermaceuticals™ products are natural based, and are free of parabens, artificial fragrance and colorants, phthalates, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives.
I was given the opportunity to review the SBD Time Reversal Eye Cream. The first thing I noticed that it came in a glass bottle vs. a plastic one. I actually prefer glass because I do not have to worry about the chemicals in the plastic leaching out to the product). There was a pump that was used for dispensing the product - another plus for me - you get the right amount of product without contaminating the jar by using your hands to apply.
The product itself was very rich and emollient but most important, non irritating. I have very sensitive eyes which is why I do not wear contacts and am very selective about what cosmetic and skin care products I use. This was easy to apply and absorbed quickly.
The active ingredients in this product are as follows:
Marine Filling Spheres™ (Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Atelocollagen): Dehydrated collagen and glycosaminoglycans microspheres penetrate and swell 10 times their volume in the presence of water, immediately filling in fine lines and small wrinkles in as little as one hour. After remaining in the hollow of the fine lines and wrinkles, these microspheres are eventually degraded by enzymes and slowly release the water initially taken up, providing an ongoing resevoir of skin plumping and hydration.
Matrixyl 3000 ™ (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7): A synergistic blend of anti-aging peptides clinically found to stimulate collagen, reduce wrinkles and speed up the skin’s natural repair process.
Myoxinol ™ (Hibiscus ecculentis extract): A vegetable alternative to Botox®, Myoxinol™ is a patented complex of oligopeptides obtained from the seeds of Hibiscus esculentus (okra) Extract. Studies show these botanical peptides reduce muscle contractions for up to 24 hours and reduce wrinkles by 26% after only 3 weeks.
Hyaluronic Acid: A major component of young, healthy skin, hyaluronic acid binds up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. Increases skin barrier function and collagen production, thereby boosting skin elasticity and smoothing and plumping fine lines and wrinkles for a younger looking appearanc
At $30 I find this a reasonable price for an eye cream. The bottle is generously sized (.5 oz) and a little bit of this product goes a long way. With the pump dispensing mechanism, you will be using the right amount of product without excess or waste. Finally you are getting a product that is designed to be nourishing and effective but without harmful added chemicals. If you are interested in trying but do not want to commit to a larger purchase initially, samples of the are available for $3 (plus shipping). Orders over $50 receive free shipping AND there is currently a coupon for 20% off on their site. I am not sure how long this promotion will be running for so hurry and check it out if interested.
