Beauty: Alert Eye Cream from Israel

Inspired by nature; anything that incorporates that into my beauty routine which actually works, is a plus and makes me feel better.
Spotlight on Alert Eye Cream from Lavidobased in the heart of the Galilee.
I started using this product two months ago after reading up on it.  It had great reviews and I ran out of the eye cream I was using. This delicate, water-based eye cream was touted as a miracle-worker spiked with plant-based hyaluronic acid and a complex of antiaging natural oils to fight puffiness, dark circles and fine lines.  Also good under makeup.  I was sold and they in turn got another sale.
What it is: a lightweight hydrosol water-based cream, formulated with plant-based hyaluronic acid, cold-pressed avocado and pomegranate seed oils, rose hip and citrus extracts. Supposed to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and is clinically proven to show significant improvement in skin hydration, texture, firmness and elasticity. 
The beginning: Made in Israel by herbalist Ido Magal who established Lavido in 2003 in the Galilee Valley, inspired by childhood memories of tending her grandmother’s organic garden. A nice little story.

The Sea of Galilee has a reputation of mythic proportions. Since time immemorial, the Sea of Galilee has provided sustenance, fresh water, and a living for all the peoples that have settled in the area. Many are aware of its history, but far fewer know that the Sea of Galilee’s sweet waters and thermal hot springs, all fed by the Jordan and Yarmouk rivers, have been used since Roman times for their healing and recuperative powers.

roceye2A perfect daytime eye cream:

Roc Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Perfecting BB Cream is a new lightweight single shade BB Cream that’s infused with Roc Retinol. It’s formulated to protect skin with an SPF 25 and while it claims to fight fine lines & wrinkles while improving dark spots, smoothing, evening, and brightening skin tone….it was the high SPF & tint that was the selling feature for me. It goes on light and doesn’t cake which some tinted formulas tend to do – something you definitely don’t want for under your eyes.

It’s a self adjusting formula which offers sheer coverage that evens out skin tone, hydrates, and gives a nice hint of colour.  It might help for when the rest of your face is tan but you have that sunglasses whiteout thing happening under your eyes which is not so attractive.roceye1
Available at drugstores and pharmacies that sell ROC. Cost: approx. $25.00
