Every good skincare routine needs to include an eye cream; there’s simply no if, buts or maybes about it! Some may argue however, that eye creams function just like a regular moisturiser and therefore, question the need to include such a product in addition to an everyday moisturising cream. The answer however, is simple. The skin around the eye area is delicate. Therefore, it helps to have a specific formulation that’s gentle, yet potent enough to keep this sensitive area hydrated and wrinkle-free. So, when it comes to keeping crow’s feet at bay, Obagi have developed the Obagi Elastiderm Treatment line which comes in both gel and cream form and aims to remedy common skin concerns prevalent around the eye area.
The Obagi Elastiderm Treatment Line
The Obagi Elastiderm Treatment Line comes with three products that will transform your skincare routine and the area around your eyes. These include the Obagi Elastiderm Eye Complete Complex Serum, the Obagi Elastiderm Eye Treatment Cream, and the Obagi Elastiderm Eye Treatment Gel.
The formulations are patented with Bi-Mineral Contour Complex that support the skin and help it bounce back from ageing with regular use. It is best for those who experience common skin concerns such as sagging under the eyes, dark circles, fine lines, and crow’s feet.
Obagi Elastiderm Treatment Gel and Obagi Elastiderm Treatment Cream
A youthful-looking, vibrant eye area are all easy to achieve thanks to the Obagi Elastiderm Treatment Gel and Cream. Both are formulated to effectively reduce the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles by firming and improving the under-eye area’s skin. It is intensely hydrating and features the revolutionary bi-mineral complex ingredient called Copper Zinc Malonate that restores, rejuvenates and exfoliates the skin. It also contains Blueberry extract, an antioxidant that further helps fight signs of ageing, and Penetrating Therapeutics which is Obagi’s special technology that helps in delivering the ingredients deep into the skin for better absorption.
With regular use, it can reduce the visible signs of ageing and strengthen the skin’s resilience. Best of all, this one of a kind treatment lifts the delicate skin around the eyes without the need for any surgical procedures.
What is the difference between the Obagi Elastiderm Treatment Gel and Cream?
The formulations are actually very similar and you can receive the same results whether you choose the gel or the cream. However, if you have normal to dry skin, it is recommended that you opt for the cream option. If you have normal to oily skin, it is recommended that you use the gel type for a lightweight feel that won’t clog your pores.
How do you apply the Obagi Elastiderm Treatment?
Start with a clean canvas by cleansing your face thoroughly. Proceed to apply your toner. Gently apply a small amount of Elastiderm Eye Treatment around the eye area. This includes your eyelids, under-eye, and corner creases. Carefully smooth it onto the skin until it is fully absorbed. It is recommended that you use this twice daily; morning and evening for best results. Then, proceed to apply your moisturiser and the rest of your skincare products.
How effective is the Obagi Elastiderm Treatment?
In a clinical study, it was found that using this treatment resulted in a 46% increase of the skin’s elasticity after just 9 weeks of use. 16% of users found their wrinkles to be reduced within this time and experienced a 7% increase in moisture in the eye area.
Obagi has always proven to their consumers that their products are potent and effective. If you’re on the hunt for a revolutionary under-eye treatment, the Obagi skincare range should be on the very top of your list.
