The newest release from La Mer is the Eye Balm Intense. It uses the same "Miracle Broth" as their original Creme de la Mer but includes two additional versions: a concentrated form and an encapsulated form. They also added a Marine DePuff Ferment and Lifting Ferment which encourage improvement in the appearance of aging around the eyes. These ingredients work together by first refreshing the eye area (you feel a cool sensation as soon as you apply it), then the eye cream penetrates your skin for lasting effects which include depuffing, lifting and smoothing of fine lines. A silver-tipped applicator comes with the eye cream and is designed to pick up the right amount of product. It doesn't pull your skin the way a finger does.
We've used the Eye Balm Intense for three weeks and appreciate the texture of our skin after using it. We're hoping the lasting effects will improve those pesky lines which are creeping up these days!
You can find the La Mer Eye Balm Intense on LaMer.com or at Neimans, Bergdorf's and Saks in October.
