Skincare products are a highly subjective and personal choice, but when I get to choose what I want to put on my face, it is often a product from Phytomer. Why do I like these products so much? Phytomer has over 40 years experience in marine skin care and while they use marine botanicals, they do so with new technology to create innovative, 100% natural skin care ingredients. Based in Saint-Malo, France and distributed in 70 countries worldwide, Phytomer is one of the only spa brands with their own laboratory, allowing them to research and cultivate their own ingredients, develop unique cosmetic formulas, manufacture skin care products and create cutting-edge professional treatments to deliver remarkable results. If you’ve ever experienced a Phytomer facial, you’d understand that it’s the skill and quality of everything they do that is so amazing. You never want one of their treatments to end! Phytomer means: “plant of the sea,” utilizing seawater, seaweed or seaside plants in every retail and professional product, combining science with the natural powers of the sea.
Now that I’ve gone through all of that, one of the Phytomer collections I really love is Pionniere XMF. I’ve reviewed a few of the products, including the PIONNIERE XMF Perfection Youth Cream that claims to visibly smooth wrinkles and plump the skin in just one hour. with exceptional youth preserving properties. EPS XMF, a concentrate from a plankton micro-organism that makes its home off the coast of Brittany in the Iroise Sea (part of the Atlantic Ocean, in France)as the star performer, and also the there is a Pionniere XMF Retexturizing Serum that purports to visibly smooth wrinkles within 15 minutes, restore hydration and smooth roughness and refine your skin’s texture within an hour.
Today I’m reviewing yet another Pionniere XMF product, the Pionniere XMF Reset Eye Fluid $151.00 1 fl. oz.. It is also a rapid performer, this time for the delicate eye area that claims to provide radiance (and a lot more) within 7 days. The before and after photos of crows feet treated with this product, after a month, showed significant improvement….really, really, really! And all of the Pionniere XMF products have produced B impressive results for me, personally, but as I always caution, my skin is not your skin, and your results may vary for better or for worse, depending upon a lot of factors.
The product comes in an airless pump. This, I absolutely love because you get the right amount every time, and there is no risk of contamination from air or pollutants or worse, having to stick your fingers into the jar. This is really critical when you are dealing with products you are putting near your delicate and precious eyes. Dab the product on, then smooth it in. It feels a bit “wet” but it absorbs within less than 30 seconds with no scent and no mess. You will feel a slight tingle. The pigmented cream blends into skin (actually, it is colorless once on your skin) while caffeine stimulates circulation to diminish puffiness and the appearance of under-eye bags and circles and panthenol deeply nourishes and hydrates to boost suppleness and soften lines and wrinkles. You get a cocktail of good for your skin ingredients that help protect the delicate skin around the eyes, de-puffing, and dealing with dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, and general anti-aging around the eye area. My personal experience with just one pump of this was that by evening, my dark circles and puffiness were reduced so much it was almost gone.
The product is good for all skin types (as someone with sensitive skin, this is absolutely critical…and from personal experience I can say that at least for me, I had no issues). The ingredients include a lot of good for your skin and anti-oxidants that are proven to support maturing skin, moisturize and soothe, and that help protect skin against aging including: Ingredient: Sunflower Oil, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Mica,Antioxidant, Vitamin E, Dimethicone, Titanium Dioxide, Shea Butter.
For those who just need to know more about the tech information the actives include: Algoreset: An eco-responsible biotechnological activator able to reset skin to a non-polluted state. EPS XMF, Extra Marine Filler*: A 100% natural smoothing and density-adding biotechnological activator Algolight Complex composed of: – Palmaria Palmata: Action on shadows caused by tissue congestion. – Dictyopteris: Acts on dark circles due to hyperpigmentation of the skin. – Ondontella Aurita: Controls puffiness by preventing lipogenesis; and Pigments and Pearls: Radiance revealing action.The product is also paraben free.
Admittedly, you can purchase less pricey eye creams, but this one really has a powerhouse of great ingredients, in good packaging. one pump twice a day is really all you need and one pump bottle can last as long as two months. If you have some disposable income, you might just “dispose” of the things that make your eyes look tired and help reduce the saboteurs to aging.
