How often should I use this eye serum?
We recommend incorporating it into your routine every day.
Is it suitable for sensitive skin?
Our Vitamin A Anti-Ageing Eye Serum has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin by an independent testing house. Everyone’s skin is different however, and as is the case when using any new product, we recommend doing a small patch test before using this to check that it suits your skin.
Where should I use it in my skincare routine?
You should use your Eye Serum just before your final creams in your night-time skincare routine. If using in the morning, you should use it just before moisturising and/or SPF!
The Eye Serum feels warm when I apply it. Is this normal?
Yes, this is completely normal. Due to the actives in the formulation, you may feel a slight warming sensation, tingling or tightening. If you can’t feel anything, don’t worry – the serum will still be working its magic.
Is Vit-A-Like™ the same as retinol?
Vit-A-Like™ is a retinol alternative. Retinol is often used as the benchmark for anti-ageing treatments, but it can be irritating on the skin meaning it isn’t great for people with sensitive skin. Vit-A-Like™ has proven effects similar to retinol but with a better tolerance for sensitive skin and much better stability. Vit-A-Like™, much like retinol, helps cell renewal and reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and this is why we’ve chosen to use this ingredient in our anti-ageing Vitamin A Eye Serum.
Can teenagers use this Eye Serum
This product has been formulated for anti-ageing so we would recommend it for customers who are concerned about ageing. However, it does contain natural ingredients but has not been tested on teenagers but if they wish to use it they can. As with introducing any new product, we would recommend doing a patch test first.
Does this product contain alcohol?
No it doesn’t contain alcohol. In the cosmetic world, when a product states that it is “alcohol free” it is referring to the formulation being free from Alcohol Denat / Ethanol (ethyl alcohol), which our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream, Reviving Cleansing Cream, Dazzling Tonic, Vitamin-Rich Sweet Glow Face Scrub, Vitamin A Anti-Ageing Eye Serum and Vitamin C Illuminating Super Serum are free from.
All other types of alcohol such as fatty alcohols (cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, etc.), preservatives such as Benzyl Alcohol should not be taken into consideration in this respect. Lucy Bee uses benzyl alcohol in some products. This is a broad-spectrum preservative system (it means it protects against bacteria, yeast and fungi) for personal care (combined to dehydroacetic acid). It meets COSMOS Organic standard and is effective in a wide pH range.
When should I do a patch test?
When using any new product we recommend doing a patch test first. See here for how to patch test.
How should I store this?
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or heat.
Which ingredient is the Vitamin A?
Vigna Aconitifolia Seed Extract.
Does this product contain nuts?
Yes, this contains almond oil and is not suitable for those with nut allergies.
