REVIEW: Airelle Skincare Age Defying Eye + Lip Treatment

by - December 04, 2018

Admittedly, skin care products specifically for the eye area tend to be the ones that I'm the least consistent in using and probably some of the ones that I need the most as I move into my late 30s and start to see more of those early signs of aging. Recently, especially with the season change and the way my skin is screaming for hydration, I've been trying to be better about that and one of the products I've been consistently using in that arena is the Airelle Skincare Age Defying Eye + Lip Treatment*. After several weeks of pretty darn consistent use, I'm super excited to share my review with you guys!

Initially, the thing that really excited me about trying out Airelle in general was their focus on scientifically backed formulas containing antioxidants and peptides that aren't necessarily the ones I've found in products I've tried in the past. Specifically, the Airelle Age-Defying Eye + Lip Treatment* promises to diminish lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness and redness, and help slow the onset of new wrinkles with the antioxidant Berramatrix®, derived from blueberries, which they describe as a "unique anti-aging ingredient proven to help block Infrared Radiation and to help preserve the collagen layer of the skin." 

It also contains ChroNoline, or caprooyl tetrapeptide-3, which is a powerhouse peptide that helps to boost the natural production of substances such as collagen and laminin 5, that keep skin looking and feeling younger and firmer. It's actually a really interesting ingredient when you look into it, I'd recommend it! I'm actually intending on doing a little more research myself into different peptides, because I've seen such amazing results when I've used various peptides in my skin care routine.

First off, I just want to be clear about how I tested this. I've really only tested this on my eye area because I don't really have signs of aging around my mouth yet and I wanted to test it where I needed it. For several weeks before writing this, I've been using this both morning and night, though definitely more consistently in the morning. At night, I use it along with an eye cream and because it's so lightweight and easily absorbed I feel like I'm adding all of the benefits of it without overwhelming my delicate eye area with product. In the morning, I use it on its own and skip the eye cream all together and go right into my usual skin care and makeup routine.

I absolutely love that they packaged this in a rollerball, because there's nothing more soothing than a cool metal rollerball to bring down my morning puffiness and help brighten this up. For an extra cooling effect, you can store this in the fridge and I absolutely would if my fridge wasn't quite so far from my vanity, if I'm being honest. After I roll the product on with a couple of slow strokes back and forth to really get the benefits of the cool rollerball, I like to tap the product in around my undereyes and outer corner of my eye with my fingertips to sort of press the product in.

I feel like the immediate effect of this product really helped it to be one that I actually enjoy reaching for. It's one of those things that wouldn't necessarily show up that well in a set of before and after photos, at least on my skin, but it just makes my undereye area look more hydrated, plumped and smoothed. I feel like that's a really good reason to use a product with hyaluronic acid around the eyes, because it's a really lightweight way to keep that area hydrated, so to have those immediate effects will encourage the user to help reaching for it in order to get the longer term effects.

Another immediate effect that I've noticed with this is that it helps my undereye concealer to apply more smoothly and look fresher throughout the day. When I initially noticed this, I thought it might have just been a fluke, so I really paid attention to how my makeup applied and wore on days when I did and didn't apply this in the morning and there really is a noticeable difference. When I use this, everything just maintains a smoothness and healthy, hydrated look to that area throughout the day.

With consistent use for several weeks - although probably not as consistent as it could have been - I feel like I've really seen a difference in the signs of aging around my eyes. Obviously, my fine lines haven't completely disappeared or anything, but the area really does look a lot fresher. Again, it's not necessarily a before and after picture kind of change and a lot of it does have to do with the way that area feels as well as how it looks. My eye area has definitely maintained more consistent hydration, which really does make skin look younger and fresher, and everything just looks a little bit more full, plump, and smooth overall. 

Overall, I'm really, really impressed with this product and keen on continuing to use it as well as trying some other products from the brand. Along with having tested this product and really enjoyed the results for myself, I also feel like it's really backed with solidly evidence based ingredients that have shown efficacy. While I personally can't say based on my own experience that this is a product that's going to work miracles for mature skin, since I don't have mature skin and can't speak to that, I can definitely say that I've seen results on those early signs of aging around the eye area and I think it's a product worth looking into closer for someone looking for something to really make a difference in that area.
