How It Works
Illuminating mineral pigments work to enhance the beauty of the delicate under eye area for a brighter and fresh look. The mineral tint effortlessly bounces light away from dark circles. The under eye area is prone to dehydration due to the skin being very thin, therefore Illuminating Eye Balm is expertly formulated with hydrating actives.
Illuminating Eye Balm is expertly formulated with hydrating actives, hyaluronic acid and glycerin, to refresh and awaken the under eye. They work to draw moisture from both the lower layers of the skin and the environment to help add suppleness to this delicate area.
Cucumber extract, made up of 95% water is instantly revitalising and refreshing for the delicate eye area.
Red algae extract is rich in digeneaside, a sugary compound which helps to regulate osmotic pressure under the eyes, minimising fluid retention and therefore the appearance of puffiness. Ideal for everyday lightweight, natural coverage, this innovative formula blends seamlessly into all skin tones.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning, apply Illuminating Eye Balm around the eye area, avoiding eyelids.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
Subtly tinted minerals and optical diffusers reflect light to soften the appearance of dark circles.

The Science Behind
“Cooling, refreshing and hydrating, cucumber extract is derived from fruit cucumis sativus, which originated in the Himalayas. Cucumbers are known for their ability to reduce swelling of the eyes, minimising the inflammation from sunburn and to promote cooling and healing of the skin. Armed with a multitude of antioxidant components, cucumber extract helps to protect the area under the eyes from free radical attack, and premature ageing. Cucumber also contains fragrant components which are not sensitising, meaning that it is ideal for use on sensitive skin.”
