This Week's Answer
Peter Thomas Roth's Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydrating Eye Gel is a lightweight moisturizer that helps to reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and darkness. This eye gel has a 50% complex of hyaluronic acid.
The Pentavitin (INCI: Saccharide Isomerate (and) Water (Aqua) (and) Citric Acid (and) Sodium Citrate) reportedly helps provide up to 72 hr of hydration—even after cleansing. The 3% AcquaCell (INCI: Water (Aqua) (and) Glycerin (and) Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract (and) Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract (and) Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract (and) Sodium PCA (and) Sodium Lactate) and a 2.6% Malachite Complex (INCI: Not Provided) works to help smooth the look of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, while caffeine helps decrease the look of puffiness; and Haloxyl (INCI: Water (Aqua) (and) Glycerin (and) Steareth-20 (and) N-hydroxysuccinimide (and) Chrysin (and) Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 (and) Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7) helps combat the look of darkness.
