I was able to know more about Elastiderm when I met Aimee DeMarais for the Obagi event months back. I was just so impressed with it claims,
ELASTIderm is a one of a kind eye treatment from Obagi Medical Products. By using a revolutionary bi-mineral complex called Copper Zinc Malonate, it works to help restore the elasticity around your eyes and reduce the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles.
The claims and even before and after photos were compelling ( see it here ), that I was determined to see if this really works. As I got a jar of this product for me, I also extended it to my dad, who is so particular about his eyes. I actually put the jar of Elastiderm on his bedside, so that he won’t forget as I have taught him to apply this product on his lid, undereye, and areas with crow’s feet. I’m quite anxious to see if this really works, so I have also taken the plunge to challenge Obagi Elastiderm and apply this every morning and evening!
At first apply, I was actually feeling weird, as it was an eye cream, and it got absorbed in my undereyes really quickly, and within 5 minutes, my undereyes were totally dry, without a trace of moisture in it! I kept on wondering why for days on why it worked like that, and upon re-checking on their website, I realized that this was not a moisturizing eye cream, but an eye treatment cream that really targets wrinkles and fine lines, that you would need another eye cream to act as a moisturizer around the eye area! With that, I am supplementing this, for the meanwhile, alternating between my Pond’s Gold Radiance Eye Cream and almost finished Eyliplex-2 ( that I so love! ) .
Oh and let me just share – my dad is just so cute, that he wants an “eye lift!” He’s also a bit alarmed about looking old ( who’s not? ) so with him in mind, I have agreed to share my pot of Elastiderm Eye Cream with him as I religiously apply it on his undereyes, where the eye bags are, and on the sides of the eyes, which are areas that crows feet can show. I’ve been seeing slight improvements, like the crows feet are not too prominent, but I want more drastic results. I’m continuing this on dad.
Well, the challenge is on!
