image002Supergoop! SPF 37 Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream

More than 90% of the signs of aging are caused by the sun and the first area where women begin to notice lines and wrinkles are around the eyes.  While many people know this, most often avoid this area when applying sunscreen.  When it comes to anti-aging, nighttime rituals of applying serums and creams around the eyes, is not enough. Supergoop! SPF 37 Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream is ideal for daytime use and is formulated to protect the delicate eye area around the clock: both from the sun, and natural aging.

Powered by natural oat peptides, the formula prevents irritation and delivers very strong anti-aging benefits in just 4 weeks. With the addition of mica mineral and the cool tip applicator, the eye area immediately looks brighter and refreshed and puffiness is reduced. In addition to anti-aging properties, Supergoop! SPF 37 Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream is the perfect remedy after a long night out, traveling or a 3pm pick-me-up at the office. Apply daily as needed for a quick fix; leaving your eye area looking like you just woke up for a solid 8+ hours rest.
