Eysilix is the second product from Indeed Labs that I've tried to date. It arrived through my door shortly after I started trailing Hydraluron.
Hailed as being the worlds first ever eye cream to contain 10 peptides and promises to tackle 5 of the main concerns for the eye area;
- Instantly lifts
- Minimises the appearance of dark circles
- Reduces the appearance of puffiness
- Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Helps to eliminate signs of stress and fatigue
Think of this as an All-in-One, the Swiss Army knife of eye creams if you like.
So what are peptides and why are they in an eye cream? Put simply, peptides are short-chain amino acids. Where two amino acids have been joined together to form a peptide bond. They are the building blocks for protein and are able to penetrate the epidermis and send signals to cells, informing them how to function. The can aid collagen production, strengthen capillaries and increase microcirculation.
Peptides to note in Eysilix are; Eyeliss to help reduce puffiness and bags under the eyes, while increasing skin firmness and elasticity. SYN®-TACKS a combination of two peptides to improve tone and increase skin firmness. Dermaxyl to smooth wrinkles while strengthening the skins natural barrier function. Eclaline to improve radiance, oxygenate and nourish the skin.
The cream comes in a plain 15ml tube and has the light consistency, similar to what you'd expect of any regular eye cream. It absorbs really well and you only need a small amount of product to gentle pat around the orbital bone.
I've been using this morning and night for the last 5 weeks. Firstly, I didn't start the trail with all 5 of the concerns so didn't expect to reap the maximum benefit. My main concern being fine lines (crows feet) starting to form. I occasionally have a little puffiness and rarely suffer from dark circles, generally after a heavy night out. Plus I'm only 30, so I would hope I don't need lifting either!
That said one of the first things I noticed after applying the cream was a 'tightening' feeling around the eye area and even though darkness is not a problem for me, I have also noticed a 'brightening' effect. My eyes look a little more awake than usual.
The biggest plus for me is the reduction in my fine lines, which was my main concern. It's pretty amazing how they have almost been erased!
My only gripe is it's a little too good and after noticing my results, the other half has been pinching it. So I'd like to request either a bigger size or some form of combination lock on the tube. I jest of course!
As with Hydraluron, Indeed Labs have more than impressed me with Eysilix. I would definitely repurchase it. In fact I'd buy two, to stop the other half from pinching mine!
