Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix is a lightweight formula that is said to dramatically reduce the look of lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. It includes a custom-designed massage applicator that you’re directed to gently roll under each eye three times and massage in a 360° circle under the eye area and above the lid. The key ingredients in the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix include dimethicone, caffeine, and sodium hyaluronate.
Dimethicone is a type of silicone that can prevent water loss by forming a protective barrier on top of the skin. Like other silicones, dimethicone can also give the skin a temporary plump look by filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Caffeine cuts down on inflammation, boosts circulation, repairs DNA, soothes sun damage, and reduces redness from irritation. As a natural stimulant, caffeine causes vasoconstriction (constriction of the blood vessels) when applied to the skin, which reduces any eye puffiness or dark circles. This happens because the constricting effect pushes blood back into the main circulatory system, rather than the small vessels right underneath the skin. Sodium hyaluronate is the salt form of hyaluronic acid that has been shown to have better skin penetrating capabilities than hyaluronic acid alone. It is an effective humectant moisturizer, which means it is able to draw in moisture from the environment and help the skin retain it. Overall, the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix provides non-greasy, long-lasting hydration and can improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
