Eye and lips cream
Contour eyes and lips with snail slime and hyaluronic acid – 38,40 $
This cream is a synergy between hyaluronic acid and snail slime to ensure a regenerating, revitalizing and anti-aging action.
Minimizes bags under the eyes, dark circles and fine lines and is suitable for all skin types.
Its compact but easily spreadable consistency makes it possible to use a small piece of product for maximum yield.
Once on the face for the first ten seconds it gave me a slight tingling sensation that then immediately disappeared.
It is quickly absorbed and from the first application the skin is immediately plumped and firmed.
I recorded the best result under my eyes, suffering from dark circles, as the skin was deflated and pink, giving a rested and awake look.
From a careful analysis the INCI is really very natural and green with numerous plant extracts such as from olives, grapes or aloe for far only examples, in addition to the presence of argan oil and jojoba.
The snail slime is interesting, 100% Italian and specific to the Lucanian Apennines where cultivation takes place in conditions of adequate temperature and humidity for the nails that does not affect the well-being of the same.
However, two ingredients that can be classified as having a great environmental impact, such as:
– ceteareth-12 = 12 molecules of ethylene oxide derived from petroleum;
– ppg-3 benzyl ether myristate = a plasticizing silicone.
Are they needed in an otherwise perfect product?

Update October 14, 2019: I asked the brand for clarification about my doubts about the ingredients I reported as negative and in fact I was confirmed that although they are not of natural origin, they are approved and safe. I actually understand that due to the type of product and where to apply it requires nourishing, but light products.
