The other day I woke up and wanted to crawl right back under the covers again. We had a really windy day the previous day and me, who hardly ever is allergic to pollen could not stop sneezing. It was like dam had been broken liquid was pouring out of my eyes and nose non-stop. It was crazy and the following morning I looked all puffed up. A total believer that everything happens for a reason, I remembered that I had to try the Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Pads for a review. So off I went and placed two soaked pads right under my eyes and went back to bed for 20 minutes.
Exuviance® Intensive Eye Treatment Pads firms and hydrate the eye area while stimulating cell renewal and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles with Lactobionic Acid and Pro-Vitamins A, C and E. SInce they feel rather cool against the skin, the soothing sensation was just what I needed.
Now why you need it:
Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes are usually one of the first signs of aging. The thin, delicate skin under the eyes is constantly exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight and free radicals which weaken skin's support matrix, leading to fine lines and deeper "crow's feet" wrinkles. Dryness and dehydration can worsen the appearance of fine lines. Until someone discovers the Fountain of Youth, aging is inevitable, but the good news is that the appearance of under eye wrinkles and fine lines can be diminished with the right products.
These single-use pads contain concentrated ingredients to provide maximum anti-aging benefits in a gentle formulation. Lactobionic Acid (10%) hydrates while it stimulates cell renewal and supports the dermal matrix, firming the skin and minimizing the appearance of fine lines. Pre-packaged in sets of two, the Intensive Eye Treatment pads are the perfect way to refresh, replenish and revitalize your eyes after a long day or when your eyes have been through hell like mine were the previous day. Dermatologist and allergy tested. Fragrance-Free, Paba-Free. For all skin types.
How to use:
• Gently cleanse and dry the area thoroughly.
• Open pouch and remove both pads. (Note: Each pouch contains 2 pads.)
• Gently place one pad under or around each eye. Smooth the pad carefully onto the skin.
• Relax. Leave the pads on the skin for 10 to 30 minutes (as desired).
• Gently remove both pads and discard. Do not reuse pads. Gently massage in excess solution.
• Exuviance recommens following up with an application Exuviance Hydrating Eye Cream.

About Lactobionic Acid:
NeoStrata’s patented non-irritating "Bionic" Polyhydroxy Acid is derived from milk sugar and suitable for all skin types. Lactobionic Acid helps prevent and reverse the appearance of photoaging, including lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores and roughness. A potent antioxidant used to prevent oxidative damage to transplant organs, Lactobionic Acid protects the skin against photoaging by inhibiting the MMP enzymes that degrade the skin's structure and strength. A natural humectant, it binds water to create a moisturizing barrier on skin, providing softness and a velvety smoothness.
