Consumer feedback from a 4 week consumer study of 30 participants.

The Early Riser Eye Cream is expertly formulated to instantly revive and refresh tired eyes, and minimise the appearance of dark circles. Containing the hero ingredient Red Poppy Seed Extract, clinically proven to address dark circles and under-eye puffiness, it stands out from caffeine-based alternatives. Acting as a superfood for the under-eyes, Red Poppy Seed Extract strengthens, smoothens, and brightens. With evidence-based efficacy, this ingredient ensures both immediate and lasting results, effectively combating dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines in the under-eye area.

Naturally outshining caffeine, Red Poppy Seed Extract is the hero ingredient in the Early Riser Eye Cream formula. Chosen for its ability to reduce dark circles and improve skin density, firmness, and radiance, it achieves this by enhancing micro blood flow, directly diminishing under-eye puffiness and dark circles. Unlike caffeine's temporary vasoconstrictive effects, Red Poppy Seed Extract offers a comprehensive, safe solution by also triggering lipolysis and supporting the skin's structural integrity.

Red Poppy Seed Extract enhances radiance and reduces dark circles and puffiness, while Australian Kangaroo Paw Extract repairs and reinforces skin structure, reducing fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and smooths the under-eye area, and Hydrolyzed Pea Protein protects against blue light-induced skin stress. Together, these ingredients create a powerful eye cream formula that proactively protects and nourishes the skin.
