I am forever on the lookout for lightweight and fast absorbing eye creams that moisturize and hydrate, but I am always apprehensive that each new eye cream that I try will give me milia. I do my best to avoid ultra rich eye creams that contain comedogenic ingredients for this very reason. DMAE & Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum did not give me milia, and it did wonders for my delicate eye area!
- DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid & Wheat Protein help firm & fight bags, puffiness.
- Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester help protect and nourish. Mulberry and Lime lighten dark circles.
- Hyaluronic Acid & Allantoin, in a unique blending, moisturize and texturizes area
Directions: "Use morning or night, under make-up or alone. Apply a small amount with gentle tapping motions...under the eye from out corner to inner, and then over the eyelid in an oval pattern. Repeat movements 5 times around each eye."
My experience: I am elated that DMAE & Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum actually does exactly what it claims to do! The DMAE, Alpha Lipoic Acid & Wheat Protein do wonders in their ability to firm the delicate eye area, while simultaneously reducing puffiness and fighting bags. While my dark circles weren't erased, they were lightened by the Mulberry and Lime as promised. I am astounded by the level of hydration that this unassuming workhorse delivers as a result of Reviva Labs unique blend of Hyaluronic Acid & Allantoin, and for me the results last all day long. Among the unique attributes of this eye serum is its ability to be used on the eye lids as well as beneath the eyes, and this point should be underscored. While I don't have crepy eyelids, those who do will find a notable lifting and smoothing of the delicate eye area, and users with crepy eyes have reported a miraculous smoothing of that skin. I find that the lifting and tightening effects make my eyes look remarkably smooth, and my fine lines are plumped. My eyes look luminous and hydrated whenever I use this-- which is quite often! This serum does so much for my skin that I don't need to use an additional eye cream when I use it!
Ingredients: Demineralized spring water, olive oil, cyclomethicone, whole wheat protein, DMAE bitartrate, mulberry extract, lime extract, alpha lipoic acid, ascorbyl palmitate, hyaluronic acid, allantoin, xanthan gum, cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth 20, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate and citric acid.
Overall assessment: Not only is this a highly effective moisturizing serum, but it is actually affordable. This product is so effective that it has me scratching my head and wondering why I have spent so much money on eye creams over the years that didn't do nearly as much for my eyes as DMAE & Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C Ester Firming Eye Serum has.
