The One Eye Cream Models Are Obsessed With—That You Haven't Heard Of
Models like Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Gisele Bündchen pretty much have access to every skincare and makeup product they could ever want—and then some. Hence their makeup-free skin looks almost otherworldly in health and spotlessness. So when we heard all three models had their teams request one eye cream in particular (after celebrity makeup artist Erica Sauer used it to prep their skin pre-show), our ears perked up. Even more curious? It's not a brand we're all that familiar with.
However, after doing some sleuthing and review-scanning, it turns out we've been missing out on something major. Meet MZ Skin Soothe & Smooth Collagen Activating Eye Complex ($137), a spendy albeit supermodel-obsession-worthy eye cream which contains hydration-locking, dark-circle-eliminating hyaluronic acid, and puff- and bag-reducing Albazia bark extract (sounds exotic, no?).
"Before a big runway show or red carpet event, I use it to prep my clients for multiple reasons: It has the hyaluronic acid in it, which helps lock in moisture and minimise the appearance of dark circles and fine lines, and it also has Albazia bark extract in it, which reduces puffiness," confirmes Sauer. "When big models like Gigi Hadid or Alessandra Ambrosio are getting ready for a shoot, they don't always have time to rejuvenate with rest, water, and a workout… This eye cream solves the problem!"
The complex also boasts a healthy dose of ceramides which aid collagen production and promote enhanced elasticity and suppleness, which, when it comes to the delicate eye area, is clutch. Another plus? The aesthetically pleasing packaging, which a rep for the brand says Bündchen complimented right before "pinching" the product from Sauer. (And to confirm, the rep also let us know Ambrosio's and Lima's teams request the eye cream specifically from the brand.)
Our conclusion: If it's good enough for three of the most iconic models of our time, well, it's certainly good enough for us and our persistently sleep-deprived under-eyes. Want more? We've included a few more of MZ Skin's best-selling. Keep scrolling!
