How to use a serum
Once or twice daily, apply to the under-eye area, avoiding the lash line, using a gentle patting motion. For daytime, always finish with SPF 30+.
C5 Super Boost Eye Cream contains 3 forms of vitamin C at different concentrations: ascorbyl glucoside at 2%, 3-O ethyl ascorbic acid at 2%, and ascorbyl palmitate at 1%. The 3-O form of vitamin C is both water- and oil-soluble, while ascorbyl glucoside and ascorbyl palmitate are water-soluble, so you get a multi-level vitamin C deposit within the skin to brighten dullness, visibly firm and help fend off ageing free-radical damage.
C5 Super Boost Eye Cream is our only eye-area formula with a blend of firming vitamin C, bio-active peptides and plant-derived ingredients to immediately improve dark circles, puffiness and dullness and also target the underlying factors that lead to them. Texture-wise, C5 is a lightweight cream that isn’t as thick as our RESIST or Omega+ eye creams, but is more emollient than our CLINICAL eye cream, whose blend of vitamin C, retinol and ceramides is best for deep wrinkles and more advanced loss of firmness. Note: It's perfectly fine to mix and match Paula's Choice eye creams. You can use one eye cream in the morning and another in the evening to meet your specific needs. We suggest experimenting to see which product or combination works best.
Yes, you can apply C5 Super Boost Eye Cream during the day. In fact, the vitamin C in this product will help to further protect your skin from daily environmental stressors and free radicals. Just remember to follow with a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Mineral sunscreens such as our DEFENSE Essential Glow Moisturiser SPF 30 are a great option.
Yes, you can layer both C5 Super Boost products. In fact, you'll enjoy enhanced results without irritation as the types of vitamin C in the C5 Super Boost Moisturiser and Eye Cream do not have the same low pH requirements as pure ascorbic acid. You’ll also get better free-radical protection and environmental defence, plus improvements to discolouration, wrinkles and loss of firmness.
Yes, you can use C5 Super Eye Cream with other vitamin C skincare products. Layer boosters, serums and treatments in order from thinnest to thickest texture first, then apply C5 Super Boost Eye Cream. You can also make a vitamin C skincare cocktail by mixing the right amount of each product in your hand, combining them and applying in one step. As with all skincare, there's no one-size-fits-all approach, so we encourage experimenting to find what works best for you. By combining vitamin C products, you'll get better free-radical protection and environmental defence, plus improvements to discolouration, wrinkles and loss of firmness. Try using them in the morning, always following with SPF.
