With all the ways our eyes are being taxed by screens and other stresses, many of us are looking to give the skin around the eyes some soothing relief. Enter a cool-as-a-cucumber serum formulated just for the eyes. Whether it’s brightening dark circles, reducing puffiness or softening fine lines, our Cucumber Tea Brightening Eye Serum is just the ticket.
WHAT DOES EYE SERUM DO?
Wondering why you need an eye serum or what’s the difference between eye serums and eye creams? Where oil-based eye creams provide a strong barrier function to seal in moisture, water-based eye serums are rich in nutrients that absorb quickly and nourish in specific ways.
The thin, delicate skin around the eyes can be more vulnerable to dryness and eye strain. Think about all those zoom meetings, restless nights and hikes on windy days. As a water-based formulation with tiny molecules that penetrate deepest, serums uniquely plump and hydrate the eyes when you need it most.
Our Cucumber Tea Brightening Serum tackles several eye concerns:
- Brightening dark circles
- Decreasing puffiness
- Softening fine lines
- Improving hydration
For 360-degree hydration and protection, especially at night or in winter, we suggest a layered pairing: First, apply a powerhouse natural eye serum and follow it up with a plant-based eye cream. Learn more about how to give dry or dehydrated skin a healthy glow in our winter skincare article.
HOW OM’S EYE SERUM BRIGHTENS YOUR EYES
Fans of our Cucumber Tea Brightening Eye Serum say it feels a bit like that cool, indulgent sensation when cucumber slices are set on your eyelids at the spa. In fact, our founder, Kari Asselin wanted to create Cucumber Tea specifically to emulate that cooling feeling and affect you experience at the spa. And our formulation brings a handful of extracts that instantly refresh the eyes.
Lightens dark circles and, along with the aloe, cucumber extract hydrates and acts as an astringent to tighten the skin.
Constricts blood vessels yet boosts circulation to brighten dark circles in the under-eye area and draw away excess fluid to decrease puffiness.
Aloe and rose water extract
Reduces inflammation, redness and puffiness (along with that hero ingredient cucumber extract).
Leaves the skin looking plump by enhancing collagen production. It also brings your most radiant skin cells to the surface by boosting cellular turnover.
Vegetable-sourced hyaluronic acid
Attracts and retains water for maximum hydration.
Because the skin around the eyes is more fragile, apply a pea-sized amount of eye serum to your fingertips and dab softly on the eyes—starting at the outer corner and working in. On its own, our eye serum gives you a wonderfully smooth base for eye makeup. At night, layer it beneath our Bilberry + Tucuma Antioxidant Eye Cream.
Another pro tip we love is to keep your serum in the fridge for the ultimate morning pick-me-up. Keeping your serum cool feels even more refreshing, and it enhances the ingredients’ ability to instantly soothe and awaken.
A FEW REVIEWS…
I've been looking for so many ways to reduce the dark circles under my eyes (I'm a woman of colour with uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation in certain areas) and I've finally found something that works for me! This product not only smells divine, it's also easy to use.
As soon as the serum comes into contact with my skin it is cooling and soothing and makes my eyes look brighter and more awake. After a few days of consistent use twice daily I’ve noticed improvement in the dark circles under my eyes as well.
I really like this product, very spa like, feels good on skin and refreshing. Smells amazing.
