Shhh! I have a secret...Okay, it's not really a secret, I suppose. I just celebrated the 1st Anniversary of turning 29. (No, I do not care to acknowledge the big 3-0.) The funny thing? When I meet people, they tend to think I am younger than my age. Which is quite flattering, if you ask me! Some find it hard to believe I have a child entering middle school. I even get carded occasionally if I have to make a beer or wine run for gatherings and special occasions. I just bought a bottle of champagne yesterday to bring with us to a 4th Of July Celebration, and the cashier told me I do not look 30! I was quite flattered, and thanked her sincerely, of course! But in reality, this is something I hear often, and I have to admit, I never tire of receiving such compliments!
I guess part of the reason I am aging well is because I have been taking measures to protect my skin since my early 20's. I have been using daily moisturizers, night creams, and sunblock religiously every day. I even use anti-aging products to ward off the signs of aging. So far, so good! I do not have any wrinkles to speak of, except one forehead line, which most people have anyway, and my skin is healthy and hydrated. I stay out of the sun, and use a high-quality SPF when I do have to be outdoors. I do not go tanning, as this is a BIG no-no for healthy skin, and I get my tan a-la-Fake Bake. Yes, with a higher-quality sunless tanner, you CAN achieve natural looking results rather than look like an orange-streaked freak of nature. Speaking of, I need to "tan" today, now that I think about it! We have a slew of parties to go to over the next few days, and I don't want to look like Casper the Ghost!
But despite all of my efforts to keep my skin looking young and radiant, I DO have one stubborn problem area. I can blame it on genetics since I have a more olive complexion and am prone to them, I can blame it on supreme lack of sleep since taking care of a house, 3 kids, and the blog make me run on about 3 hours of sleep per day, I can even blame it on that fact that I get very itchy eyes due to being allergic to pretty much everything...But the fact is, I have awful dark circles under my eyes. I hate them, and sometimes they're so bad I look like I have not slept in a year! Luckily, I recently discovered a fantastic concealer that totally hides them. But concealer, while quite handy, does not address the root of the problem.
That's why I was so excited about the revolutionary products from Perfective Ceuticals! I love skin care products, and this is a line I was not aware of until recently. What makes their products so special? The science behind them! Perfective Ceuticals utilizes unique formulations including Growth Factor, a a small polypeptide of 53 amino acids which serves as a cell messenger protein to signal the synthesis of the skin matrix to help aged or damaged cells to transform back into vibrant young skin cells Increase in production of Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Elastin, and Fibroblasts.
Growth Factors are naturally occurring substance capable of stimulating cellular growth and proliferation. They participate in skin rejuvenation at various levels such as stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastin and promoting growth of keratinocytes, dermal fibroblasts and other cells with decreased prolific capacity due to aging. Medical studies indicate that Growth Factors are unparalleled in enhancing dynamic and rapid cell activity.
Perfective Ceuticals comprises holistic wisdom with cell biology technique to provide aging skin the most extensive compensation ever experienced in a skin care formulation. Famed Growth Factors, proven anti-aging ingredients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are included in their anti-aging creams and wrinkle treatments to reverse the ravages of time. Apply once in the morning before the sunscreen and at night after cleansing.
Sounds pretty exciting, doesn't it? I was thrilled to have to opportunity to review one of their products designed specifically for the eye area, Perfective Ceuticals Anti-Imperfection Eye Therapy With Growth Factor.
Here is a bit more about this revolutionary product before I touch on my experiences with this product:
Like a protective shield from the signs of aging and fatigue, Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy Cream with Growth Factor is formulated specifically to battle against the four pillars of aging eyes: fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness.
Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy Cream with Growth Factor is a highly concentrated eye cream, which contains both Collagen and Elastin stimulators to help rebuild the dermal matrix and prevent the deterioration of skin proteins; Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 (Matrixyl) help reduce the length and depth of fine lines, under eye wrinkles and crow's feet wrinkles and improve firmness by strengthening the elasticity of the eye skin area. Acetyl Hexapeptide (Argireline) helps prevent the formation of wrinkles and crow's feet by inhibiting repetitive muscle contractions.
Combined with Retinol and Ginseng Extract to help alleviate dark circles and eye bags, Anti-imperfection Eye Therapy Cream with Growth Factor is the path to youthful, luminous, and radiant eyes. Non-comedogenic. Scientifically proven.
I have been using this product for a few weeks now, and I cannot say enough positive things about it! First, I absolutely love the rich, moisturizing feel of the product when applied. It is deeply hydrating, and does not leave behind a greasy residue. This product actually leaves the skin velvety and super-moisturized, and definitely smooths out the entire treated area. It also does not flake when applying make-up, and does not settle into creases in the eyelids.
Another thing I love is that just the tiniest amount of product goes a very long way. I use a tiny little dab about the size of a small pea, and this is more than enough to treat the skin around both eyes. Anti-Imperfection Eye Therapy is ultra-concentrated, and begins going to work on the skin immediately, combating any signs of aging or imperfections.
I noticed within a week or so that the area around my eyes was plumper, more radiant, and yes, my dark circles have in fact begun to diminish some. They're still there, but they are much less pronounced. I have high hopes that with continued use of this wonderful product, they will gradually disappear! Sure, instant gratification would be nice, but that's not a realistic hope at all, and these things take time.
I am extremely happy with the results I have had so far, and I will continue using this product daily. This has become my go-to eye cream, since it is so hydrating and really seems to work exactly as it's supposed to. My entire eye area looks and feels renewed after using Anti-Imperfection Eye Therapy With Growth Factor.
So while the name Perfective Ceuticals was new to me, I know now that this name is synonymous with quality. They offer a complete line of scientifically engineered skin care products that are designed to promote healthy, radiant skin and combat the signs of aging. Another one I would LOVE to try is their Divine Age Guardian Serum with Growth Factor. I love a good serum, and after seeing such promising results with their eye-treatment, I am willing to bet this is also worth its weight in gold!
Hey, aging is a part of life that is as unavoidable as death and taxes. But with Perfective Ceuticals, you can help keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay and maintain a youthful appearance much longer! What's not to love about that? I definitely recommend this product to anyone suffering from fine lines, wrinkles, and yes, the dreaded under-eye circles. Try it! I think you'll be as pleased with the results as I am!
You can purchase the entire Perfective Ceuticals skin care line on their website.
