RevitElix™ is Echium oil providing Omega 3, 6 & 9 to reduce lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity and participate in barrier repair. It helps rebuild the hydro lipid film at the skins surface for long term plumping. It builds up elastic fibres and is also anti-irritant. This natural ingredient has a temporary 'mushroomy' aroma that quickly disappears as the Rose note develops - the incredible benefits of this ingredient far outweigh this in most people's opinion. EYE PRO™3X a combination of Rhodiola Rosea and yeast which increases oxygen consumption to address dark circles and reduces the fatty deposits that cause puffiness under the eyes. It also stimulates collagen synthesis pepha®TIGHT is clinically tested and contains algae derived polysaccharides which tighten the skin, build fibres to improve elasticity. ARGIRELINE™ is a biomemetic hexapeptide which is clinically tested. Shown to relax muscle contraction and is likened to having a ‘Botox-like’ effect to reduce expression lines. MOISTUREPLEX™ ADVANCED is a blend of amino acids similar to our Natural Moisturising Factor. It captures and holds water at the skins surface ACTIGEN™02 contains Ginseng to stimulate cell respiration, clinically tested to increase blood flow and bring oxygen to the skin. It is anti-irritant and helps to reduce puffiness. PRIMAL HYAL™300 is a very special hyaluronic acid fragment that not only helps with moisture control but also stimulates beta-defensin peptides to protect against microbial invasion.

Eyes are where we tend to see the first signs of ageing and very often we judge the performance of a brand by the eye cream. So, this one was very important. I was working with the four scientists that were helping me select the world's most effective evidence-based actives and I said I wanted this to be high performance but with a fairy light touch. Not to affect mascara and not to feel heavy on the delicate skin around the eyes.
This was the only product in the original collection that did not have the signature essence blend and my big debate was whether or not to use RevitElix (Echium Oil) because it has a 'natural' aroma. After a huge amount of deliberation and canvassing women and men just like you, the concensus was that performance was more important. I added rose oil to try and over come. No other ingredient comes close to the performance of Echium Oil for both prevention and perfection of skin ageing. I am still working with cosmetic scientists to find a way to prevent the natural smell developing and we will get there - another batch is going in to test as I write this (June 2014). In the meantime, stick with it because they don't come much better than this.
I also use it on my lips to help reduce the 'barcode' lines on the upper lip. You can control how much pumps out by pressing up (with the finger receiving the cream) while pressing down on the nozzle.
A customer recently described this as 'medicine for the eyes'. Sums it up perfectly.
