Fight the signs of sun damage and premature aging with this nourishing and rejuvenating eye cream. Obagi’s lightweight and ultra hydrating eye cream helps to restore moisture to the delicate eye area all while helping to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of sun damage, and restore firmness to loose skin. By using this product regularly, your under eye area will be left with a restored and youthful-looking glow.


How does this product work?


The Ultra Rich Eye Hydrating Cream uses plant-based growth factors from Obagi’s patented Kinetin-Zeatin Complex. These clinically-proven active ingredients work to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles such as those in the “crow’s feet” area. Roxisomes, the mitochondrial DNA repair enzymes, work to fight oxidative stress and can help to improve collagen stores within the skin. Overtime, Roxisomes help to improve the appearance of sun damaged skin while decreasing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Algae extract found in this cream also helps to give the skin a more luminous and radiant glow. Ethylhexylglycerin helps to soothe any irritated skin. Lastly, Obagi’s patented delivery system works to slowly release these wonderful active ingredients into the skin over a 12 hour period.


How do I use this products?


This product is meant to applied twice daily along the orbital bone underneath the eye, to the outer corners of the eye, and underneath the brow bone. It is not recommended to be applied directly on the eyelid.
