THE FIRMING EYE GEL
Refresh tired eyes with the much-lauded Dragon’s Blood Eye Gel from luxury skincare brand Rodial, available for the first time at M&S, says M&S.com beauty editor Jess Clark
While no actual dragon’s blood was spilled in the making of Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Eye Gel, it’s safe to say there’s some serious skincare magic in every pot. Earning its name from its key ingredient – the red sap of the South American ‘sangre de drago’ tree – this cult offering from the internationally renowned skincare brand promises to revive and tighten skin around the eyes, and tackle fine lines and wrinkles. Dragon’s blood sap has been used for centuries for its antioxidant and healing properties – early Roman and Greek civilisations prized it – and is combined here with hyaluronic acid (for skin-smoothing and hydration), rose water and arnica. The fast-absorbing product gives an immediate cooling effect and a feeling of replenished moisture – like a restorative drink for tired, puffy eyes.
