Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Mask

An undereye mask that can deliver immediate results, smoothing lines, and wrinkles — take your eye treatment one step further with a super dose of retinol.

We have all heard the saying ‘the eyes are the window to the soul’. We also know that the area around the eyes is one the first that shows the signs of ageing. The skin is thinner than that of the rest of the face, therefore this area can show the appearance of tiredness and puffiness — it’s also more fragile which is why the delicate eye area shows signs of dehydration, fine lines, and wrinkles.  

“We crease, we wrinkle, we lose elasticity around the eye—retinol is magic and the eyes deserve retinol” – Dr. Zion Ko

Murad’s newest eye reviving product, the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Mask has been co-created with skincare expert Dr. Zion Ko. A premium extra-large eye mask that delivers an instant boost of retinol to virtually erase lines, visibly firm and leave eyes looking ultra-refreshed. In fact, 80% of clinical trial participants showed immediate measured improvement in crow’s feet lines and wrinkles after just one 15-minute application. 

The Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Mask has been formulated with Murad’s cult-favorite Retinol Tri-Active Technology, balancing fast-acting and delayed-release retinols for rapid results while being gentle on skin, plus firming blue agave, and radiance-boosting passionfruit extracts.

What makes this eye mask special? The extra-large shape leaves no part of the eye untreated and is made of a medical grade Bio-cellulose material. Dr Murad and Dr Ko, drawing on their medical experience chose to use Bio-cellulose due to its ability to increase trans-epidermal absorption, versus other materials that just lie on your skin. Bio-cellulose is at the top of the pyramid of eye-mask materials because there’s no ingredient evaporation. It locks in the ingredients so you’re getting 100% of its benefits. That’s something you won’t get from other eye mask materials, and that means more ingredient bang for your buck.

How to use the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Mask? 

Apply after cleansing in the evening only. It’s recommended to use the masks 2-3 times week for the best results. 

1. Each pouch contains 2 eye patches. Separate and remove the blue mesh from in-between the two patches.

2. Apply the side without the mesh onto under-eye area, positioning just below the lash line and just above the cheekbone.

3. Peel off outer blue mesh starting at the outer corner, then gently pat to smooth. After 15 minutes, peel and reveal a refreshed eye area. Discard patches, then pat in any remaining product.

  • 80% showed immediate measured improvement in crow’s feet lines and wrinkles*

  • 93% agree that firmness around the eye area is visibly improved
