Devera Naturals uses edelweiss plant stem cells in their products to reduce signs of aging. Edelweiss is a flowering plant belonging to the daisy family that grows in the Alps. I can't help but start singing the song from The Sound of Music in my head when I hear the name! Edelweiss extracts have a high concentration of flavonoids and phenolic acid that help fight UV-induced skin damage. The plant stem cells have the unique ability to replenish and regenerate our own human stem cells, thus delaying the aging of essential skin cells.
But does it really work? I can say that my prior experience with the Snow Flower Creme was wonderful. I am 28 (and was 26 when I wrote the previous review) so I don't have any wrinkles right now to worry about, but I think it's never too early to start using preventive skin care. While I can't comment on how well it reduced wrinkles since I don't have any, Devera Naturals states that volunteers using a cream incorporating edelweiss plant stem cells at 1% twice daily saw a 15% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in just 22 days.
The Snow Flower Creme is light and silky smooth. I used it in the morning and at night and I found that it absorbed into my skin quickly and didn't feel greasy or heavy throughout the day. It also comes in an airtight pump dispenser which preserves the quality of the product and ensures that the anti-aging ingredients don't lose their potency.
The Miracle Eyes cream was new to me this time around. My skincare routines are actually quite soothing to me; I love pampering myself, especially at night. I started using eye cream a few years ago and I can't believe I hadn't been using it sooner. The Miracle Eyes cream is lovely, especially at night. The cream is a bit thicker and creamier than I usually see for eye creams, but that's not a criticism. It's very rich and a little goes a long way. I dabbed a pea sized amount, per the instructions, under my eyes after cleansing and it almost felt cool to the touch when applied. Along with the edelweiss stem cells, the cream also contains goji berry extract, hyaluronic acid, and marine extracts to smooth and firm the delicate eye area and green tea and cucumber to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
