What Is Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream?
It is with great interest that we review Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream as it is an award-winning cream by Eminence. It contains plant peptides and algae extracts to reduce the visible signs of aging around your eyes, says Eminence. In particular, it claims to provide hydration that remains and improve wrinkle, puffiness, and dark circle appearance.
The featured ingredients are:
- Peptides from rice protein
- Red algae extract
- Hyaluronic Acid
- A collagen and amino acid complex
The last product is responsible for the long-lasting hydration which helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, while peptides also help to reduce wrinkles. Collagen is necessary to rejuvenate the skin and keep it firm and plump. The algae extract is an ingredient we really like because of how effective they are at protecting against free radicals, as clinically proven. But, we don’t agree that there are enough alfa-hydroxy acids or panthenol from vitamin B5 as required in a highly effective formula, nor are there some other key ingredients such as passionflower.
The biggest issue is that there appear to be one general patented ingredients present only, and it is used throughout this range of products. What we like to see is a minimum of two or three eye-specific patented clinically proven ingredients, so you know your eye area is being deeply targeted with the best form of a superior ingredient. Additionally, two to three other patented ingredients that firms skin and reverses wrinkles should be present – in other words, a minimum of five patents. Your eye area more than most deserves a targeted approach with several specialist ingredients, and it won’t happen with the help of only one patented ingredient. This is borne out by the fact that superior products that have the weight of successful clinical trials behind them carry at least five patented ingredients.
How To Use
Apply it to your eye area twice a day, patting down gently.
What Is The Cost?
A 1,05 bottle of cream will cost you It is inconvenient that the product is not available on the product website. You have to obtain it from various carrier Eminence spas, and additionally, you have to find out first if they actually stock it. This adds to your cost in the time in sourcing the product, and transport costs in getting there. You are free to call customer service if there isn’t a spa near you and needless to say if you’re an international client, you’ll have difficulty getting this cream. It does ship internationally though via some retailers which sell it for anywhere between $73 and $200 which is expensive indeed. If you buy online, even from Amazon, it is not clear what you are getting the authentic product. Consumers have flagged this as a concern, and it hasn’t been resolved.
Although we searched extensively, we found no proof of a guarantee or returns policy. We find this unacceptable given the barriers to obtaining the product combined with the astronomical cost. It is a very high-risk purchase indeed.
Our Final Review of Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream
We like the inclusion of peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, and algae extracts in the formula as these are strong anti-aging ingredients when combined. However particularly given at this price, we would have expected to see at least five patented clinically proven ingredients as included by industry leading natural cosmetic manufacturers who have taken skin science research to the next level. The relative absence of panthenol from Vitamin B5 is also a seemingly obvious omission which we would not have expected. By comparison, some patents which have caught our eye and are backed by clinical studies are Syn-Coll, PhytoCell Tec Alp Rose, Pronalen Fruit acids AHA-50 and REGU-AGE. These are patents found in the eye cream of only one manufacturer and is not the full list of patents contained there either. In each case, clinical trials have backed up efficacy. We were not surprised in the feedback from this one-patent product to have consumers saying that their puffiness and dark circles had not dissipated, only to have the manufacturer respond by telling them to use the product for a further two weeks, or alternatively try other same-brand eye products. At the end of the day, if this manufacturer were sure of the working of their product, they would have provided a guarantee – it is a huge red flag that there is none.
