When it comes to ageing, our eyes cop the worst of it: fine lines, deep wrinkles, thinning skin and loss of collagen and elasticity, for starters. Which is why eye creams are one of the hardest working products in your skin care arsenal. So unsurprisingly, cutting edge Korean beauty brand AHC have made a potent eye cream that can be used all over your face for a supercharged anti-ageing treatment that tackles all your top concerns in one. Less products in your routine, yet more potent results: It sounds like a good deal to us.
Proof that it’s not just a cool idea, but one that actually works, this product - the AHC Eye Cream For Face - has been bought 71 million times overseas in just three years! If you do the maths, that comes out to about one sold every three seconds. And at long last, it has now landed here in Australia at Myer.
Since we don’t need to sell you on the fact that the Koreans know their skin care and are at the forefront of beauty innovation, cos you already know all of that, let’s take a closer look at what makes this eye cream so hotly coveted around the world beyond its K-Beauty heritage.
Selecting all the best anti-ageing nutrients you expect from your eye cream and formulating them to work for the whole face, this tube of goodness will give you a youthful and radiant complexion.
Inside the formula, you’ll find a combination of 12 types of peptides that can penetrate deeply into the skin to encourage collagen production, and vitamins that stimulate tissue growth for youthful skin. To top up your hydration levels (because we all know how essential it is for younger-looking, glowing skin), the cream is infused with natural moisturising factors (NMF), along with ceramides to trap and retain moisture.
It’s not just the ingredients that make this cream a must-have for tackling wrinkles, dullness, texture, tone, and elasticity (yes, it does all of that - we told you it was hardworking!). It uses a process known as microsome technology to break down the active ingredients into smaller-sized microparticles that are able to penetrate the pores and absorb more effectively into the skin. Once applied, the microparticles respond to the warmth of your skin to release the active ingredients deep below the skin’s surface.
Not bad for a $49 cream, is it?!
To use AHC’s Eye Cream For Face, gently dab a small amount onto the eye area until it sinks in, then apply a generous amount all over the face and lightly pat it into skin until fully absorbed.
While the AHC Eye Cream For Face is one of the brand’s top sellers, it’s not the only innovative and luxe-for-less product in the AHC line-up. Myer now stock 30 of the brand’s best products, which range from toners (a K-Beauty favourite) to cleansers, serums, moisturisers, and of course, sheet masks. We recommend starting with the AHC Premium Hydra Gold Foil Mask.
Each mask is soaked in a full bottle of ampoule for the ultimate hydration and firming boost in 10 minutes flat. Plus, the foil mask uses a patented three-layer design to ensure every last drop of the formula goes into your skin, rather than evaporating into thin air. Cue dewy, radiant skin in an instant!
