I've been dealing with fine lines under the eyes since high school and have tried hundreds of different eye lift creams and fine line eye serums.
And, now that I'm over 50 I'm starting to notice crinkly loose skin and under eye puffiness too! But I think I finally found a solution, see my pictures below...
I tried everything from creams to laser skin resurfacing! OUCH! Laser skin resurfacing treatments really hurt, took almost a month to heal and was expensive.
And, after all of that, I still had lines under the eyes. It's like I'm back where I started! I finally decided to just live them, but never gave up my search for an effective eye treatment product that would at least minimize the look of under eye lines and puffiness.
This serum is almost clear and light and forms a soft, flexible band across the under eye area helping to lift sagging lower lids, reduce the look of puffiness, and hide tiny crinkly lines under the eyes.
And it does not feel tight and dry like some of the other under eye lift serums I've tried. Seriously, I love it! Click here to see what I'm using to reduce the look of lines under my eyes.
Now just because I found an eye lift product that works - doesn't mean I won’t keep testing other new eye lift creams or gels. After all, you never know when you’ll find something EVEN better.
I thought I'd try a very popular instant eye lift firming product by Peter Thomas Roth called FirmX.
Like most eye lifting gels I've tried before, the FirmX is a thick, opaque, sticky gel. So I had to work quickly because it hardened and dried out before I finished applying it. The picture below shows how drying it can be.
Both eyes look smooth, but notice the whitish film all across the lower portion of the eye on your left? I didn't like that! Plus, the skin under my left eye felt very dry.
So, I tried it again - this time using less product - and still got the same whitish film and dry flaky feeling across the lower lid. Finally, I used so little gel that I didn't see any results at all.
Yes, there are hundreds of "instant eye lift serums on the market and they all recommend that you do not use moisturizers or makeup around the eye area for best results.
While the FirmX label didn’t state whether it works best with or without eye creams, it doesn't matter. I need to apply eye moisturizer because my skin is just too dry in the under eye area. So I need an eye lift product that will work with any eye cream products.
If you do decide to try this product please make sure you follow this one important tip!
So, for now I’m back to my favorite instant eye lift – the Instant Eye Tuck Serum – to help reduce the appearance of lines under the eyes and puffy eyes. If I find something better, I'll be sure to post it here on the Beauty Product Review page.
