This Eye Serum is one of the Internet Bestsellers and there is an explainable reason for that: the containing ingredients, which include Superoxide Dismutase [1] , Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 [2], Caprylyl Glycol [3], Ascorbic Acid [4] etc.

All of these components have very strong anti-aging properties. The product is designed to remove the dark circles and puffiness surrounding the eye area. Almost 70% of all customers find it very effective and highly recommend it.

People report that they usually experience „a slight tightening” in the area of application. Comments also inform that the product can be used for a long time:

The other positive aspect of this Eye Serum is its’ price – customers are very happy with it, as it is much cheaper than similar products.

This one has loads of comments and the rating is quite impressive – almost 80% of all customers rated it 5 star, which is great, considering the fact that usually have a negative attitude towards such product types.

The reviews available inform about dramatic changes in the appearance (people have actually attached photos in order to show the effect on their under eye bags and the wrinkles).

The containing ingredients include caffeine [5], myristate [6], hydrolyzed sodium hyaluronate [7] etc. Customers also report that the cream does not leave white residue on the skin, and could be applied as a makeup base. Typical comments say

„ I love the texture and feel. When you put it on, you instantly feel it working immediately. You definitely notice the results right away.”

There are several negative comments, informing that customers are disappointed by their purchase but, unfortunately, cosmetic products don’t provide the same results for everyone. Below every negative comment the vendor offers a full refund:

„we would be happy to offer you a full refund, without requiring you to return the product.”

This leads me to think: Why don’t you give this product a try?

Bonus: Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a procedure of exfoliating the dead skin cells and dirt from your skin in a non-invasive way. It can be performed at a doctor or at the convenience f your home. I recommend the second because it saves a lot of time and money. And you can find our guide on the best at-home microdermabrasion machines here.

Important

test allergic reaction behind ear

Everyone's skin is unique, and even if you have chosen the best product for your skin condition, the containing ingredients may still cause some irritation, burning sensation, rash or allergy.

To avoid potential skin reactions, we highly recommend performing a patch test before using the product (you can download printable PDF version here)
