Few things get me excited like beauty products do. The fun of the first smell, to discover how it feels and most importantly to watch my skin to see if it truly has a benefit for me. I recently found out about The Skin Saint. Creator of the line, Holly Cuter, struggled with cystic acne, endometriosis, and the awful emotional damage the comes from that struggle. She worked hard to discover how she could repair skin on a molecular and cellular level, and when she did she was eventually able to repair 80% of her own scarring left from acne. This Dream Eye Cream is a rich and restorative, all-in-one, anti-aging eye cream. It contains peptide complexes, a breakthrough Retinoid, and a form of Vitamin K, to reduce dark circles, promote collagen production to improve ﬁne lines and wrinkles. Dream Eye Cream also increases cellular turnover resulting in healthy, younger-looking skin in this delicate area.
