de Mamiel Essential Eye Fix and Lip Rx

By Phoebe Spuyman

Essential Eye Fix

When we experience ongoing or chronic stress, the body is flooded with cortisol, a stress hormone. When produced in excess, cortisol causes changes to the proteins in the skin which reduce its elasticity and contribute to wrinkle formation. As stress can also impair the skin barrier, skin becomes easily dehydrated.

The eye area is particularly susceptible to dark circles and puffiness, with the supporting muscles around the eyes prone to weakening. Add sleep deprivation, poor lifestyle habits and the fact that the skin around the eyes is ten times thinner than elsewhere on the face.

Formulated as a stress response serum, Essential Eye Fix addresses the physical signs of stress induced ageing including wrinkles, dryness, dark circles and loss of elasticity. With regular use, the eye area looks brighter, firmer and more refreshed.


Lip Rx

The skin on our lips is around a quarter of the thickness of the skin elsewhere on our face. Unlike that skin, it’s also devoid of sebaceous glands so doesn’t produce lubricating sebum, and it has no outer stratum corneum layer to protect itself. These key differences mean the skin on our lips is not only thinner but more vulnerable and so needs dedicated care.

Formulated by Annee to soften, plump and protect lips, Lip Rx is de Mamiel’s new generation lip balm that doesn’t just care for lips on a surface layer, but at a foundational level too. As with all de Mamiel products, the formula is loaded with powerful plant extracts and oils, all of which have been chosen specifically for their ability to cushion and cosset lips when they need it most.
