When it comes to brightening and tightening the delicate under-eye skin, most insiders believe that products can only do so much.
Whether it’s bags, dark circles, puffiness or fine lines, the most common concerns in this area are notoriously difficult to address – so when you find a treatment that has not only makes bold claims but has the sales stats to back it up, you know it’s time to sit up and pay attention.
Spanish beauty brand Sesderma first made headlines when its popular Azelac RU Liposomal Serum arrived in the UK back in February, much to the delight of shoppers who’d spent years stocking up during their holidays to avoid supplies running out back at home.
Now, the line’s C-Vit Eye-Contour Patches – which sell once every 30 seconds in their native Spain – are available to shop on our shores too.
A representative for Sesderma told you.co.uk that sales of the product are up by 574 per cent in the last month alone, adding that the mini masks have been dubbed ‘eyelift patches’ and ‘miracle eye SOS’ by those that have used them already.
With ingredients including ascorbyl glucoside (a stabilised form of vitamin C) to add brightness and palmitoyl tetrapeptide to calm and combat signs of lines, plus all-important hyularonic acid for hydration, the patches are said to beat fatigue, make your skin look luminous and improve the overall appearance of your eye contour.
At £18 for a box of five, they work out at £3.60 per use – so whether you incorporate them into your weekly routine or keep a set in the cupboard for when tiredness hits you hardest, they’re an affordable addition to your arsenal. Plus, 10-15 minutes is all it takes for them to work their faff-free magic.
Want to see if they live up to the hype? The eye contour patches are available to order now at sesderma.co.uk. Between this and the serum, which sells at the same impressive rate, we may just have found our new skin saviours…
