NEOCUTIS® RECEIVES ITS 16th INSTYLE “BEST BEAUTY BUY” AWARD. Lumière® Recognized by InStyle as “Best Eye Cream”

Merz Aesthetics, a division of Merz North America, announced today that NEOCUTIS® Lumière was named an InStyle 2017 “Best Beauty Buy” award winner for “Best Eye Cream.” Each year the publication polls the industry’s top experts to identify the best performing beauty products. This year’s winners are featured in the May 2017 issue of InStyle.

“I have always considered NEOCUTIS® Lumière to be a leader in the eye cream category because of its innovative formula and proven results,” said Dr. Ulysses Scarpidis, board-certified plastic surgeon at Scarpidis Aesthetics in New York, NY. “Its formula is packed with a powerful blend of energizing and moisturizing ingredients to give the eye area a younger, more refreshed look. My patients that use it have never looked back.”

This year’s InStyle award marks the 16th time that NEOCUTIS® has been awarded a “Best Beauty Buy” title since 2009. Of those 16 award wins, Lumière has been honored as an InStyle “Best Beauty Buy” nine years in a row, with a total of 11 award wins.

“We are thrilled to celebrate yet another InStyle award win for NEOCUTIS® Lumière,” said Jim Hartman, Vice President and US Head of Merz Aesthetics and OTC Marketing. “The continued recognition is a true testament to the cutting-edge scientific research and technology that goes into the NEOCUTIS® formulas, that are both industry and physician approved.”

NEOCUTIS® Lumière is infused with PSP® (Processed Skin Proteins) – the brand’s patented, anti-aging technology. This exclusive technology is an optimally balanced blend of proteins, including human growth factors, that support your skin’s natural processes to preserve healthy, youthful-looking skin.
