This specialty eye cream is formulated using the finest Swiss Technology. Through years of intensive research on scarless wound healing, physicians discovered the unique ability of fetal skin to heal without scarring. Inspired by the phenomena, medical researchers at the University Hospital of Lausanne created a biotechnology process to obtain the rich proteins responsible for scarless would healing from cultured fibroblasts.
The Lumiere Eye Cream contains PSP (Processed Skin Cell proteins), a proprietary skincare ingredient exclusive to Neocutis.
This product and the entire line raises many ethical questions about the use of PSP in cosmetics. Simply put, PSP are skin cells obtained from a fetus. NeoCutis discloses the following on their website, “To be clear, our products do not directly use the originally donated tissue in any way. We only use proteins derived from cultured skin cells (grown from a dedicated cell bank).”
All Neocutis products contain PSP and PSP has been clinically demonstrated effective in peer reviewed, published clinical studies, which show the effectiveness of PSP in skin rejuvenation, post-procedure skincare, and care of sensitive, stressed and irritated skin.
This products is supposedly formulated with 30% more PSP, a complete protein blend of Human Growth Factors, Cytokines and Interleukins to help smooth and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The PSP and hyaluronic acid help firm and hydrate the delicate skin under and around the eyes, helps reduce the appearance of under eye darkness, smoothes the signs of fine lines and wrinkles,. The addition of caffeine helps alleviate skin puffiness and helps to soothe and refresh the delicate eye area.
This product is receiving a lot of attention, along with the other products in the line. This product specifically was recognized and recommended by InStyle magazine.
Eye darkness is also supposed to fade by using the specialty Lumiere eye cream. And the caffeine in the product is said to get rid of bags and puffiness. These claims seem to be unfounded.
This product also says that fatigue will disappear when using this eye cream 2 times per day. A tough claim especially if you aren’t getting enough sleep to start. 6 weeks after starting to use Lumiere Eye Cream Neocutis Bio-Restorative Eye Cream With PSP, you should see dramatic results and look years younger.
Many report this is just not the case. The hyaluronic acid claims to tighten the thin skin beneath the eye area. Another questionable attribute because many report they never saw this improvement, even after extensive use. Yes this eye cream hydrates the eyes and gets rid of dry skin. It goes on light and smooth and non-greasy. But it falls short on all the other claims.
This under-eye specialty cream is fairly pricey and that’s where the disappointment factor arises. This product averages around $55 on Amazon, but it is available in many retail locations. If you were to purchase this product at your dermatologist’s office or skin care professionals office, you may pay close to $100 for this. Customers don’t mind paying a little more for a great product but they do mind paying for something that just doesn’t deliver.
Others refuse to use this product based on the human growth cells it contains.
