Dear, Klairs_Fundamental Eye Care Duo Comparison

  1. 1) The Ingredient: Similar but different

    • (both) Caffeine : Just like we drink coffee when we try to wake ourselves up in the morning, you can expect a very similar effect when you add caffeine as a skincare ingredient for your under eyes care. Eye cream with caffeine is known to reduce redness, puffiness around the eyes and reduce the appearance of inflammation. Caffeine also has soothing properties making it effective yet skin soothing for under eyes care.
  • (both) Red bean extract : Red bean might not be the most familiar ingredient for everyone yet, for Asian cultures it is a very familiar ingredient rich in Vitamins, minerals and fiber. The red bean exract contains Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Vitamin E making it a great ingredient for antioxidant skincare products. It also helps repair and renew cells making it a unique yet ideal ingredient for eye care products.
(both) Quad-peptide : Peptides being one of the most popular anti-aging skin care ingredient, they are chains of amino acids that are building block of protein in the skin. Thanks to its ability to penetrate effectively into the skin, it has been proved of its anti-aging property. But imagine you get to have 4 of this brilliant ingredients just for your under eye care! (eye butter) Sunflower seed oil : Sunflower oil is significant as it is a non-comedogenic carrier oil which is highly absorbent, and doesn't clog pores. Since it is rich in Vitamin E it is a great antioxidant ingredient and since it helps skin retain moisture it makes it a great hydrating ingredient to be found in under eye care products.
