Puffy peepers and sleepy panda eyes are a particularly pestilent menace that besets even the best of them. Brought on by any matter of causes, from genetics to hormonal dynamics and even the number of birthdays you’ve had, carrying a little too much excess baggage beneath the eyes typically requires more of an intensive treatment to keep them at bay. This is where the la mer intense eye balm makes an intervention. An exceptionally effective eye bag buster that deals with all the major drawbacks and signs of fatigue, this immensely nourishing eye balm works to alleviate puffiness, soothe skin, and eradicate fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the delicate skin around the eyes looking healthy, refreshed, and positively invigorated. Formulated with a wealth of nutritive ingredients including three different types of la mer’s infamous seaborne elixir the miracle broth, it’s fortified with the inclusion of marine algae such as asparagopsis armata extract, ascophyllum nodosum extract, and gelidium cartilagincum extract which are loaded with an abundance of seawater minerals, fucoidans, polysaccharides, essential fatty acids, polyphenols, and phlorotannins that help fight inflammation caused by environmental stressors, detoxify and eliminate impurities, while preserving the integrity of the skin. Alongside those oceanic marvels is a bounty of other powerhouse ingredients, with the addition of saccharomyces lysate, which is a fermented enzyme rich in amino acids, peptides and beta-glutan, that helps stimulate the skins cellular renewal functions, prevent the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and reduce irritation by neutralising any nasty bacteria and toxins in the skin; tetraacetyl phytosphingosine, a skin-identical ceramide that hydrates the skin at a molecular level, replenishes the lipid content in the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the epidermis), and strengthens skins barrier function; plus an infusion of precious minerals with the inclusion of the healing powers of malachite and the piezoelectric energies of tourmaline, which in addition to their aesthetic qualities, are potent anti-agers with tremendous antioxidant benefits that ward off free radicals and oxidative stress, encourage the production of collagen and glutathione, and in turn leave skin looking and feeling more vibrant and energised. An indispensable weapon against the scourge of ailing eyes, the eye balm intense is your greatest ally when you want to give the leaden under-eye look the old heave-ho. Incredibly comforting, the weightless formula is applied to the eye area using la mer’s proprietary silver-tipped applicator which provides the additional benefit of a cooling, gentle massage to target the lymph nodes and stimulate microcirculation.

Hinged upon a special combination of science and a little dose of magic, the fabled story of La Mer began when aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber suffered catastrophic burns in a laboratory accident, rather dissatisfied with the remedies available, he took matters into his own hands and set out on a journey of self-healing. Physicist by day, stargazer and dreamer by night, Dr. Max Huber looked to the oceans restorative abilities for inspiration in order to turn mishap into a miracle, twelve years and six thousand experiments later the "miracle broth" was born. The holiest of holy grails, the remarkable healing properties of this potent concoction is the stuff of beauty legend inspiring a certain amount of intrigue and curiosity, though shrouded in an air of mystique, the secret of this coveted elixir comes down to an exact science. Harnessing the powerful renewal energies of the sea (Crème de la Mer literally means "cream of the sea"), miracle broth is derived from a mix of antioxidant-rich sea kelp harvested off the pacific coast and an array of vitamins and minerals, citrus oil, eucalyptus, wheatgerm, alfalfa, sunflower, and lime tea extract. Though, like alchemy, the 'miracle broth' is more than the sum of its parts, the strength of this potent concoction lies in the precise scientific formula carried out at the Dr Max Huber Research Laboratories: in a meticulous bio-fermentation process that lasts over three months, ingredients are treated with the energy of light and sound waves (sonochemistry) which acts as a catalyst to speed up the chemical reactions that occur during fermentation, after which a morsel from the previous batch of cream is added before being hand-filled into each jar. Powerful as it is, miracle broth remains at the heart of all La Mer beauty products and cosmetics, it's exceptional moisturising capabilities are brought to the fore in an array of luxurious skincare and makeup products that comprise the La Mer regime, each is designed to hydrate and soothe the epidermis, cleanse and energise the complexion, and activate the skins transformative rejuvenation processes, promoting the advancement of youthful, healthy skin. A miracle you can believe in, La Mer is, quite naturally, the crème de la crème.
