Do you know that you could actually look older than you really are if you neglect the delicate skin around your eyes?

The skin around our eyes is the thinnest and most fragile on our entire face and is the first area to show signs of aging – such as sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles.

After 15 years of research, SK-II scientists were able to prove that our eyes can get 20% smaller on average over 15 years, starting from our 20s – due to the lack of lengthwise and crosswise firmness around the eyes.

When lengthwise firmness (less wrinkles and fine lines) and crosswise firmness (less visible pores) are achieved, skin around the eyes is firmer and eyes look bigger, younger and brighter.

The third and latest product in the award-winning R.N.A. Power Radical New Age anti-aging skincare series, the new R.N.A. Power Eye Cream promises to keep your peepers looking bigger as you age (by as much as 11% with just 6 weeks of continuous usage), by targeting the lengthwise and crosswise firmness in every corner of the eyes.

In order to maintain my youthful look, I take really good care of my eyes. In addition to my daily simple eye massage, an eye moisturizer is a MUST for me. As I believe the skin around our eyes is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. The appearance of our eyes actually determines how old we looked overall.

The skin surrounding the eye is particularly sensitive to the effects of aging due to its thinness, which causes it to easily lose firmness and plumpness.


Recently, I was being introduced to a new eye moisturizer – it is the new SK-II STEMPOWER Eye Cream – the latest addition to SK-II’s award-winning STEMPOWER series.

SK-II scientists, through SK-II Akita study, have discovered that each key affected by aging in different ways. Eye bags begin to sag in the 20s, eyelids develop wrinkles in the 30s, while wrinkles manifest in the corner of the eyes in a woman’s 40s.

Review – Shiseido Future Solution LX Eye & Lip Contour Regenerating Cream


Paula Begoun, the famous cosmetics cop from US, believes that we do not need an eye cream! She claims that there is no evidence to prove product formulations for eye creams don’t differ from those for face products. Frankly, I actually believe in her at first!

Out of curiosity, I did a test and I completely stopped applying an eye cream and instead using my usual day or night moisturizer to hydrate my eye areas for a period of time. The method doesn’t really work for me as I began to encounter minor irritation on my delicate eye areas. My eyes began to get teary and stinging at times. After the test trial, I have to disagree with her and I feel that an eye cream is ultimately essential.

As the skin around the eye areas is delicate and fragile due to the fact that it is much thinner than the rest on the face and in addition there’s no oil glands to keep it moist. Therefore wrinkles and fine lines will easily develop around the eye areas.

Many many months ago, I was given a chance to test the Future Solution LX Eye & Lip Contour Regenerating Cream from Shiseido. Yes yes yes my bad for taking years to review it. It’s better late than never. <grin>
