NEW: BeautyPro Retinol Under Eye Patches
This 20 minute treatment will work to eliminate the signs of tiredness and ageing: brightening dark circles, reducing fine lines and re-energising the skin. The result? Glowing, smooth skin that feels relaxed and hydrated!
The BeautyPro Retinol Under Eye Patch is a 2021 finalist in the Attracta Beauty Awards.
So why have we created the Retinol Under Eye Patch?
Following on from this, we wanted to be able to create a product that builds on this success while offering a unique set of benefits.
Product Development Director David Herdman says: “During lockdown I wanted to create a new eye product based on the success of The BeautyPro Under Eye Mask.
With Retinol and Vitamin C being such a key ingredient in skincare right now and one of the top three searches in skin care ingredients, it made sense to combine these to create the Retinol Eye Patch.
Combining Ocean Retinol from Sea Kelp and Seaweed with Vitamin C, Aloe Vera and Citrus Extracts we've created a formula that brightens dark circles and visibly improves the appearance of pigmentation. These easy to use serum infused gel patches are rich in anti-ageing ingredients to help smooth skin texture while hydrating the under eye area.
We’re really excited to share them with you.
Top tip from me: Use your Retinol Eye Patches at the same time as your favourite BeautyPro sheet mask for the ultimate replenishing treatment.”
When should I use the Retinol Under Eye Patch?
By using Retinol as our key ingredient, we’ve created an eye mask perfect for night time use, which makes it the perfect accompaniment to the Eye Therapy. You don’t have to choose one or the other - both will work in perfect harmony to help you to achieve refreshed and brightened eyes.
During the night, your skin is more effective at absorbing nutrients and repairing itself. This is because your skin has time to work on itself without the presence of make up or environmental stressors. This makes it a great time to use powerful ingredients on the skin that encourage regeneration and repair.
Retinol helps to change the behaviour of older cells to encourage them to appear more youthful. It also encourages cell turnover and promotes collagen production. This will help to thicken the skin, rejuvenate dying cells and smooth the complexion to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Basically, it will leave you looking youthful and re-energised!
Another reason for using it at night is because Retinol makes your skin more sensitive to UV rays. This means that by using it in sunlight could cause damage to the skin as well as reducing the effectiveness of the product. This is why you should only use Retinol in the evening and ensure that the following day you wear an SPF.
What other ingredients are used?
Vitamin C is a popular skin care ingredient thanks to its anti-ageing benefits and brightening qualities. The powerful antioxidant helps to hydrate the skin through decreasing water loss and helping the cells to retain higher levels of moisture which in turn increases skin health. As well as improving your complexion from within, it will also aid the appearance of the skin by smoothing the surface, fading pigmentation, reducing redness and preventing the skin from sagging through increased collagen production. A real skin care hero!
Aloe Vera is well known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, but did you know it actually offers a wealth of other benefits too? Aloe Vera aids the healing of wounds as it helps to speed up the reproduction of cells, which is also vital when fighting skin ageing. The vitamin C and E present in the gel helps to diminish skin blemishes and reduce any fine lines or wrinkles, as well as improving the skin’s elasticity. This will leave your skin feeling repaired and firm.
How can I fit the Retinol Under Eye Patches into my skincare routine?
As we’ve mentioned, these Retinol masks are for night time use but where should they fit into your ritual? That’s easy - simply pop them on after you’ve cleansed, toned and exfoliated. This should be one of the final steps in your routine to ensure that the formula can work its way into the skin. Don’t rinse after use to allow the ingredients to soak into the skin overnight and lock in these benefits by applying a moisturiser to ensure maximum effectiveness.
