Did you know that stress triggers the release of cortisol, a hormone that causes clogged pores and inflammation? When collagen becomes inflamed, the skin’s matrix breaks down and results in a wrinkle. And were you aware that stressed, inflamed skin can also become dry and itchy as a result of poor circulation caused by constricting blood vessels, making moisturizing essential?
Enter RoC Multi Correxion Nourish Stress Repair Eye Cream ($24.99), which claims “to reverse the look of stress-related aging and unwind wrinkles while nourishing dehydrated skin for a more youthful, radiant look.” The product promises to “relax undereye wrinkles as well as nourish dehydrated skin and soothe the appearance of puffy eyes.”
I used this twice daily, morning and night, for a week. For daytime use, I appreciated the light, easy-to-blend formula, which worked well under concealer and foundation. But, it was also rich enough for nighttime use. I noticed a slight decrease in puffiness (yay!) but no real change in wrinkles or crow’s feet (sniff!). Still, it’s a good, solid product at a reasonable price point — a worthy addition to your beauty kit and caboodle!
