Thankfully, Sampar Paris has our back: Sampar Eye Rule (Age Antidote) is formulated to combat the signs of aging by resurfacing and filling fine lines and wrinkles in an instant. Reduces dark circles and puffy eyes, moisturizes, and repairs skin in depth. The added bonus of the roller ball application stimulates the circulation to reduce the appearance of bags under the eye.
Here’s how it works:
Peptides and Adenosine firm the slackening of the skin while the steel roller ball combined with White Lupin work together deflate puffiness and bags and minimize darkness. The Adenosine also works with Extrait d’avoine to minimize the appearance of expression lines. Sampar’s patented Urban Defense Complex (a powerful alliance of 3 actives, a natural high-tech innovation: shea butter serum, mint endorphin, probiotic sugar) fights free radicals and pollutants along with Red Raspberry Seed Oil, which also joins Argan Oil and Imperata Cylindrica extract to fight dehydration. Horse Chestnut Extract and RSP Extract (which contains licorice, marigold, and Butcher’s broom) keep dark circles at bay.
Eye Rule really delivers on its promise: leaving dry patches, puffiness, and lines in its wake and revealing smooth, younger looking skin. Plus, it feels amazing going on thanks to the rollerball which we’re loving in eye care products… it’s like a gentle under eye massage!
Lisa Ashley, the creator, approached a group of us and asked for a few minutes to tell us about her Ultimate Eye Cream. She told us briefly about its features and benefits, demonstrated the product for us on our hands, and asked us for business cards before leaving us to enjoy the mixer. Impressed by her soft yet professional pitch, genuine passion for her product, and ok….curiosity about the wild claims (eliminates need for concealer! covers imperfections without color! masks redness and dark circles! smooths wrinkles and fine lines!), the cream stayed fresh in mind all night, and was begging to be tested the very next day.
First, we did some more research. From the site:
Tall order, huh?
After years in the laboratory, combining the most advanced ingredients to create a multi-functioning product that delivers ultimate and immediate results, Lisa Ashley introduces The Ultimate Eyecream. A truly groundbreaking beauty product with some of the most advanced and innovative features in the cosmetics industry.
“Lisa Ashley, The Ultimate Eyecream” uniquely integrates six different benefits into one eyecream:
- helps to firm skin, reduces puffiness, and inflammation.
- special light diffusing properties gives the illusion of instantly neutralizing dark circles, brightening eye area while leaving a luminous glow.
- increases blood circulation and helps to improve lightness of dark circles.
- unique blend of ingredients gives the appearance of significantly softening lines.
- a natural alternative to silicone, rejuvenates and hydrates skin while also providing strong antioxidant protection.
- distinctive steel roller ball application helps soothe and minimizes inflammation.
We weren’t expecting much - generic white packaging, sticker label, “illuminating” roller ball design seen on many a trendy eye product - but let us say: WOW.
The product did exactly as it claimed, and then some- brightened, smoothed, soothed, and we barely had to touch our concealer (For the record, this is after years of piling on heavy duty concealers to mask our hereditary dark circles).
A complete winner in our book. We’d gladly pay double the cost.
