I have been a fan of Alumier MD since I got their facial end of May this year. I have shared my experience of the facial here if you are interested to read. I really loved the results and the products used. Alumier MD products are a fusion of science and technology and hence, the line is overall called a medical line of skincare which means it is based on the formulations which are created through various medical studies and proofs. I was sent Alumier MD AluminEye & Lotus Scrub for review and after using these for over a month, if you follow me on Instagram you will know when I posted about these referring to ‘on the testing shelf', I have my reviews ready which I will share further in this post.
Alumier MD AluminEye is described to be an eye cream which is packed with multi faceted peptides that help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen and elastin, reduce puffiness by improving lymphatic drainage, and lessen under-eye circles by clearing dark pigments from within the skin. A combination of tremella mushroom extract, niacinamide (vitamin B3) and murumuru butter moisturize, while a unique blend of antioxidants protects against UV-induced free radical damage. AluminEye contains light-reflecting and soft-focus ingredients that immediately lighten the appearance of under-eye darkness. It is fragrance-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, mineral oil-free, dye-free.
I have used this eye cream day and night for almost a month and I am liking it. I do not have particular concerns on my eye area but I do feel when I do not get enough sleep or if I have been sitting in front of the computer all day, my eye area gets dry and dull. While using this eye cream, it helps brighten my eye area and hydrate it. Moreover, being 30+ the appearance of wrinkles might knock the door anytime, just that I have been trying to take good care of my skin and choose the products very carefully. This cream is definitely amazing, my eye area has been bright and hydrated with no dullness or lines around them. I am for sure going to finish the little tub of this eye cream.
I apply this eye cream after cleansing my face. I take a little less than a pea size of this eye cream on my ring finger tip and gently pat it under the eyes and along the brow bone. This cream is not meant to be rubbed but just gently tapped on the area to have the maximum benefits. I have not experienced any issue with my sensitive eyes while using this eye cream. My eyes usually get red when I use something that does not suit my eye area or if the product gets into my eyes.
Alumier MD Lotus Scrub is described as an evenly exfoliating scrub designed to cleanse and smooth all skin types. Lotus Scrub uses lotus seed powder and microcrystalline cellulose, unique natural biodegradable exfoliating agents that are smooth and spherical. These agents create even and gentle exfoliation to remove impurities and reveal healthy, more radiant skin. This innovative technology was developed because non-spherical exfoliating agents can irritate or injure the skin. Lotus seed powder also has natural moisturizing and calming properties to help you achieve a healthy glow. It is fragrance-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, soap-free, dye-free, mineral oil-free.
I have more into acid exfoliation than physical exfoliation. To test out this product, I have used this scrub twice every week for almost a month. I have not used anything like that with the texture of scrub molecules in a jelly like solution. It never caused any irritation or breakouts to my skin. My skin feels soft, supple and fresh after using this scrub. After cleansing my face, I apply a small amount of scrub to my fingertips and gently massage in circular motions over my face avoiding the eye and lip area for almost a minute. Then I rinse it off with lukewarm water. Then I follow with my serum and moisturizer. It can be used in the morning or evening skin care routine but I prefer using exfoliation during the evenings. Being a scrub and from a skincare line that is all based on science and technology, they can do no wrong.
What is your favorite eye cream? Do you prefer chemical exfoliation or physical exfoliation?
