When it comes to aging, our eyes usually betray first, giving way to fine lines, dark circles, crow’s feet and other annoying issues, sometimes as early as in our 20’s. No matter which (or how many) eye concerns you have, 3 LAB has introduced a new multitasking, anti-aging eye cream equipped to tackle them all and help you fight the good fight!
Antioxidants in skincare may not sound like anything new, but the new Anti-Aging Eye Lift boasts of a newly discovered Super Antioxidant derived from macroalgae cell culture found deep beneath the sea and 3 LAB’s unique Marine Repair™ complex that addresses existing wrinkles, while brightening the eye area for a lifted effect.
Utilizing skin changing technology, this firming, plumping and brightening anti-age treatment provides the delicate eye area with a “lift from within” effect. Key ingredient, Ephemer™, a Super Antioxidant is the first of its kind cosmetic active derived from Brown Algae. Combined with a blend of peptides and botanicals this powerful formula boosts collagen and elastin production, providing long lasting, sustainable anti-aging results. Clinically proven, you can say good bye to fine lines, dark circles and eye puffiness.
Key Ingredients :
Ephemer™ – derived from Brown Macroalgae, this super antioxidant firms, plumps and brightens the delicate eye area
Marine Repair Complex – a proprietary complex of algae and other marine ingredients helps to provide superior, lasting hydration, while regulating the skin turning on the production of elastin & collagen and turning off the production of melanin

Texture wise, this eye treatment feels rich, but isn’t at all greasy and absorbs right away without leaving a heavy film or stickiness. Just a tiny bead-sized drop is enough to get the job done! What I really like is that it is quite moisturizing and instantly plumps the skin making my undereye area look smooth and dewy, and reducing the appearance of those pesky fine lines. Also, it has a faint citrusy-sweet scent that dissipates soon after application…it has never bothered me or caused any irritation issues.
According to the instructions, this eye cream can be used around the eye area AM and/or PM but I have mostly been using it at night. The reason being, either I’m in a rush in the mornings (which is always!) or I just forget! But in case you are wondering how it wears under makeup, the emollient formula not only hydrates but also acts well as a primer that holds my concealer in place…score!
Now on to my results : After using this cream for several weeks, I have noticed a definite improvement in the form of less fine lines and overall smoother skin around the eyes but what I am really loving is that my dark circles look a lot better! My undereye area looks so much smoother, fresh and bright in the morning after using this eye treatment at night. I also feel like this eye cream has worked well to reduce my dependency on concealer!
Clocking in at $400 for 0.5 oz, 3 LAB Anti-Aging Eye Lift is super expensive, but if your eye area needs a little extra TLC and attention, this luxe marine-based treatment could be worth it in the long run to break the cycle of tired and stressed skin around the eyes!
