Natura Bissé The Cure Sheer Eye

I've been using Natura Bissé's The Cure Sheer Eye ($115) for about a month. I purchased it after Denise Thomas, Natura Bissé Product Specialist at Neiman Marcus, sent a sample home to me via Kathy Shoreman. I quickly decided I needed it. It was a good decision.

The Cure Sheer Eye is a tinted, creamy serum that contours the delicate skin around the eye (upper and lower lids) by firming it and visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. The slight tint provides the eye area with exceptional radiance and luminosity, evening skin tone while it infuses the delicate skin with state-of-the art treatment elements.

The Cure Sheer Eye is said to prolong the lifespan of skin cells thanks to the infusion of SIRT-AP, a sirtuin modulating peptide that prevents premature aging. This cutting-edge formula includes an active combination of anti-wrinkle ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, fermentus glaciarum extract, and tripeptide-10 citrulline and tripeptide-1, which provide this delicious cream/serum with powerful anti-aging properties that help to modulate the activity of metalloproteinases (bad actors MMP-2 and MMP-3, which degrade the structure of the skin). The Cure restores the levels of young collagen and maintains the balance of collagen throughout its different cycles (production, organization, and protection). This exclusive ingredient mix mimics the skin's natural moisturizing factor, maintains the proper hydration level, and prevents dehydration, dramatically improving the texture of the skin and diminishing the visible signs of aging over time.

As if that weren't enough, The Cure Sheer Eye is formulated with a "Detox Diet Complex," based on sulphorane, which stimulates the skin's natural detoxifying process in order to smooth the skin around the eye contour area. Natura Bissé has included botanical extracts of water lily, ivy, and caffeine-carnitine complex, which work together to diminish dark circles, reduce puffiness, and effectively soothe, protect, and decongest the eye contour area, while preventing the appearance of signs of fatigue. There is also a biotechnology-created extract rich in vitamin Pp (niacin). These ingredients helps to eliminate excess fluid around the eye contour area.

The formula makes this eye treatment unique, but we aren't finished yet! This innovative formula includes pigments that "self-adapt" to every skin tone and diminish skin imperfections, leaving behind a luminous, even-toned, and healthy appearance to the eye contour area. When I pump The Cure into my palm to apply it, I marvel at how the color looks way too dark for my skin - and then totally morphs to work on my fair skin when I apply it. It disappears as it provides a "soft-focus" effect that creates multiple light micro-reflections, providing a luminous halo that softens dark shadows. It's absolutely amazing. I can wear it without concealer on top of it and still look polished, wide awake, and raring to go.

A little of The Cure Sheer Eye goes a very long way. I have been a little frustrated that one tiny pump yields more than I need. I end up wasting some every day. That depresses me, given how much I love it. I wish I could get the knack of pumping only what I need. When a product is this fabulous, you don't want any of it going down the drain!

You can purchase Natura Bissé The Cure Sheer Eye at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and other Natura Bissé counters.

I remember when Miss Brahms told us about Natura Biseé in one of the Friday Forums, so I was thrilled when my Neiman's order contained a sample. Although I've only been using it a couple of days, that has been more than enough time to convince me that I really, really need this product. So, I promptly put in an order to Neiman's this evening. This eye cream is so soothing, and you're right about needing only the tiniest amount. If I used the amount that is required of most eye creams, it would be enough to cover my entire face! OK, so that's a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much :-) When it arrives, I'll be mindful about how I dispense it.

The titanium dioxide and self-adjusting, flesh colored tint do a beautiful job of diffusing irregular skin tone and imperfections while the other skin-loving ingredients go to work creating a smooth, refined, eye area. The bonus? It can be used in the whole orbital eye area, delicate eyelids included. Did I say how much I love this? No? I absolutely love this! Natura Biseé The Cure Eye is, hands down, the best eye cream I've ever tried. Wow!

I'm so glad you like it as much as I do, Eileen! I think The Cure may be the "new order" of eye creams.

It sounds absolutely sublime. The price, however, is so far out of my budget... :-(

Hi Lovethescents,

I thought long and hard before I bought it, but I'm glad I did. It's unique. I know I spend too much on beauty products. I will be a poor old gal when I hit 75, but I'll have quite a stock of makeup. :)

You are a temptress, Charlestongirl! Now I wonder if I can get my hands on a sample....hmmm...the hunt is on! :-)

had seen another review on this elsewhere, but you tipped me over the edge! it is on its way to me from NM. they also offered a sample of it. have you thought of re-potting it? i travel for work and always put these type of products in a 3-5ml travel jar so i can have it with me at all times!

Charlestongirl said...

Wow, Suzanne. That's dedication. I haven't found I needed to reapply during the day, so I never considered decanting some of it into a smaller container. However, I have some containers, and I think I will now. Thanks for suggesting it!

Charlestongirl said...

Lovethescents, they have packet samples at NM, so other stores probably do too. I just got one for a blogger friend. Have to remember to mail it!

There's a natura bissè sun care collection on ebay at a bargain price girls!

Apparently the seller doesn't send outside the UK but i think it's worth it to send him-her a message!
