Happy Healthy New Year!
I picked this up during a sale at FabFitFun website. There is no scent, which surprised me, because I kind of expected a berry or fruit smell for some reason. It has a thin applicator and a little tiny bit goes a long way, one little dot under each eye which you can gently pat into the undereye skin. It does get absorbed into the skin, and there was no reaction or sensation.
The first ingredient noted was water. I half expected berry. Again, I think the name of the eye serum made me think of a healthy juicy berry.
You can apply your eye makeup and concealer normally after you let it absorb and dry.
I’ve tried this and it makes the under eye area smooth for me, a bit plumper actually. It doesn’t feel overly greasy and doesn’t have an overpowering scent. While I have read some reviews that there were reactions to the serum (a couple wrote “burning sensation”) I did not personally get a reaction.
Passport to Beauty is about featuring, creating and promoting international beauty products.
I tried to find this particular goji berry eye serum product on other sites. On Amazon, there are a couple of sellers but they are charging $38.00 for 0.5 oz!! On the Passport to Beauty site, they carry the Pump version as well as the tube, and the pump runs $88.00! Below is information from the Passport2Beauty website, including ingredients.
What: An Anti-Aging Brightening Eye Serum
Why this is Essential For Your Skincare Routine:
For centuries women in Tibet have looked to the Goji Berry as a powerful health tonic and ‘beauty food,’ thought to promote a smooth, clear and youthful complexion. Goji Berries are rich in essential vitamins and minerals which help fight off free radicals and increase production of elastin and collagen, minimizing fine lines and keeping the skin firm and supple.
The Passport To Beauty Tibetan Goji Berry Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Serum marries East with West with a rejuvenating and advanced age-defying formula exclusively designed to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen and elastin while repairing and restoring the delicate eye area.
This exclusive formula lifts, tightens and firms fine lines and wrinkles. Tibetan Goji Berry, considered Asia’s Beauty Food and a powerful anti-oxidant, helps to protect the delicate skin and tighten, firm and smooth away fine lines. Retinol’s effective anti-aging properties help to smooth, soften and protect the delicate under eye-area while restoring moisture and rejuvenating skin from the inside out.
The advanced peptide blend works to increase and boost the growth of the connective tissues while naturally increasing the production of collagen in the skin. Essentially, these two wonder ingredients can help to revitalize the skin, restoring it to a more youthful and suppler nature.
Formulated with Powerful Anti-Aging Ingredients:
- RETINOL: A derivative of vitamin A, retinol reduces the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles to improve the look of collagen-depleted skin, while complementing the skin’s natural process to reduce the appearance of pore size
- MATRIXYL 3000: Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 – Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 work to increase and boost the growth of the connective tissues while naturally increasing the production of collagen in the skin. Essentially, these two wonder ingredients can help to revitalize the skin, restoring it to a more youthful and suppler nature.
- STAY-C® 50 ( Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate): one of the most stable forms of Vitamin C that works blocking 3-free radicals responsible for cell membrane damage. Helps to stimulate collagen and elastin, and becomes an inherent part of the skin.
- SEPILIFT: A powerful anti-oxidant with triple action; rejuvenating, moisturizing, and anti–wrinkle prevention; long lasting firming and moisturizing effects; and stimulates contraction of collagen fibers.
- GOJIBERRY: A rich antioxidant containing large amounts of polysaccharides, amino acids and vitamins, Gojiberry can be used as an energizing and stimulating ingredient which may provide strength and energy to cells to perform their metabolic functions. Goji also improved the systhesis of collagen in the skin cells.
