BSKIN Philippines Eye Serum

During the lockdown period, screen time drastically increased because everyone was online all of the time. Unfortunately, that also means that our eyes suffered a lot. Plus, since the new normal requires us to wear face masks most of the time, only our eyes are very exposed to environmental pollutants that could result in premature skin aging.

To help combat this, BSKIN Philippines has launched the newest Eye Care Multi-Tasking Power Serum. The product is packed with multiple benefits. It hydrates, firms, and brightens your eye area while reversing signs of aging, erasing dark circles and pigmentation, decongesting and reducing puffiness, and preventing skin dryness all at the same time.

Harnessing the wonders of nature along with 50 years of skincare technology, BSKIN Philippines delivers effective results using a gentle-on-the-skin formula to achieve a state of harmony and balance for healthy skin. The secret? More than 30 years of experience in potent bee-based compounds and bee wellness products.
