Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care is an innovative eye contour moisturiser that enhances the skin’s own hydration system and leaves skin supple, smooth and radiant. It also reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles in the eye contour area.
Skin needs water to work efficiently and effectively. Well hydrated skin is smooth and supple and looks radiant. When skin’s natural protection barrier is compromised, it loses moisture and becomes dehydrated. Dehydrated skin looks dull, feels tight and is unable to keep external irritants at bay and, as a result, becomes sensitive.
The skin around our eyes is particularly thin and, in dehydrated and sensitive skin, is more likely to display signs of stress and tiredness such as puffiness and dark circles. It needs intense and long-lasting hydration to look and feel at its best.
Most moisturisers improve skin hydration by limiting the evaporation of water from the skin and/or by binding moisture in to the outer layer of skin with humectants such as Glycerin. Skin also has its own hydration system – the Aquaporins. They transport water between skin cells and support skin hydration from within. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE enhances their natural strength. The formula contains Gluco Glycerol, a state-of-the-art hydrating ingredient, which is proven to increase the number of Aquaporins in the skin. This means that, in addition to limiting evaporation and binding water into the outer layers of skin, Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE enhances skin’s own hydration system. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care additionally contains refreshing Ginseng and comes with a cooling applicator to counteract the appearance of puffiness and dark circles.
Eucerin AQUAporin Revitalising Eye Care provides intense, 24-hour hydration for a fresh, revived look. It works against puffiness, counteracts appearance of dark circles and diminishes fine lines. It is clinically and dermatologically proven to be compatible with sensitive skin and is free from fragrance and parabens. It has also been opthalmologically tested and found suitable for contact lenses wearers.

How do I pick the right moisturiser for me?
Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care is particularly good for those looking for an intensely hydrating eye cream that reduces puffiness and dark circles. You can find information on alternative eye creams and different skin types throughout our website but, if you are unsure, we recommend that you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for a face-to-face diagnosis.
How should I prepare my skin before using Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care?
Start by removing all eye make-up. For waterproof eye make-up, including even the most stubborn mascara, try Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover. Then cleanse your face thoroughly using the appropriate Eucerin cleanser for your skin type followed by DermatoCLEAN Clarifying Toner. If you are looking for a quicker cleansing solution, try Eucerin DermatoCLEAN 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Fluid. This can also be used to remove water soluble eye make-up. Once the sensitive skin around your eye area is clean, it will be better prepared to absorb the active ingredient in Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care.
Why do I need a separate moisturiser for the skin around my eyes?
The skin around your eyes is thinner than your facial skin and particularly sensitive to all kinds of external influences. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care contains special lipid components with a very low spreading capacity to make sure they do not reach the eyes' conjunctiva (the mucous membrane that lines the exposed portion of the eyeball and inner surface of the eyelids) and cause tears or burning. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE Revitalising Eye Care has been both clinically and opthalmologically tested so it is proven to be safe for your eyes. The formula is also enriched with Ginseng extract and comes with a cooling applicator to improve efficacy against puffiness and dark circles.
