Get Into Your Skin: PCA Skin Ideal Complex Revitalizing Eye Gel

Today I wanted to talk about something that has me excited. Why? Because it pertains to one of my primary skin concerns and that is the area around my eyes!

I have accepted the fact that my eyebags aren’t going anywhere unless I go see Dr. Juvederm. And even though I am aging like fine wine πŸ™‚ I still detect fine lines around my eyes and crows feet when I smile. But that acceptance hasn’t stopped me from being overprotective about it! Which brings me to PCA Skin Ideal Complex Revitalizing Eye Gel* ($84.00)!

The eye gel makes some pretty bold claims about being able to reduce the lines around the eyes:

This cutting-edge eye gel strengthens, firms and lifts the skin around the entire eye area. This unique formulation utilizes the latest science, combining proven ingredients in a single formulation that can be applied directly to all areas around the eye, including the eyelid, to treat all the common concerns of the aging eye area and achieve dramatic results rapidly. Its light gel texture is excellent for all skin types. 

Now, as with most anti-aging products, this is definitely YMMV. Your results will certainly depend on how visibly you are aging. I don’t have many fine lines but the ones I do have happen to be around my eyes, and they are pretty fine. I like using this gel because it’s so silky and moisturizing; one of the most moisturizing eye products I have ever used. I really prefer this over a creamy eye cream, which sometimes I feel like I’m just wiping away. The gel smooths out that sensitive area and feels really good under my eyes. I have only been using this for a little over a month, but I see the area around my eyes more awake when I use this.

Key Ingredients:

Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3 – a peptide that provides similar benefits as vitamin A without irritation, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and making the skin smoother and brighter.
Niacinamide, Fraxinus Excelsior Bark Extract and Silanetriol – this combination of ingredients reduces eye puffiness, dark circles and under-eye bags while providing antioxidant protection.
Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract and Darutoside – reduces upper eyelid sagging, strengthens the skin and reduces crow’s feet wrinkles, while minimizing dark circles and puffiness.
Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Callus Culture Extract (Orange Stem Cell Extract) – strengthens skin structure to maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin; it organizes and firms the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I use the PCA Eye Gel as the very last step in my skincare regimen. During the day, I wait five minutes after use before I use my primer and at night I moisturize and the apply the PCA Eye Gel before retiring to my chambers πŸ™‚

The Bottom Line:

  • At $84 for 0.5 oz, this eye gel is an investment. Don’t expect overnight miracles from any eye cream! I’m keeping an eye out for more dramatic results in the months to come. You can receive free shipping with code BRANDBACKER
  • A little bit goes a long way. I use a pea-sized amount for one eye. This should last you many months.
  • Super moisturizing but not heavy-feeling. I’m not a fan of feeling like I have a lot of product on my face. The gel just sinks into your skin and is weightless.
