I have tried numerous Osmosis skincare and makeup products, and I remain very impressed by the efficacy of each of the things that I have tested. Ever on the hunt for effective eye creams and eye serums, I was naturally quite interested in trying their Refresh Eye Serum and Refresh PM Eye Serum. Both are very effective moisturizers, they reduces the appearance of dark circles and puffiness and plump fine lines.Osmosis Pur Medical Refresh Eye Serum ($60.00 from Osmosis and Skin Care RX): This is an intensely hydrating, anti-aging daytime eye serum that diminishes the appearance of dark circles, reduces the appearance of under-eye puffiness and softens the appearance of fine lines. It is exceedingly concentrated, therefore only a tiny amount is needed for the best results. I apply it to warm, slightly damp freshly cleansed skin and it sinks right in. Skin is left soft, supple, nourished and brightened.
According to Osmosis,
This powerful eye serum utilizes ingredients that work with the skin to effectively reduce puffiness, lines, and dark circles. It also contains proven actives that increase collagen and elastin as well as to firm and protect the delicate layers around the eye.
Balancing scientific ingredients with active botanical extracts including Canadian Willowherb and Sweet Almond Oil, the lightweight serum infuses the delicate eye area with moisture and vitamins, stimulating natural collagen and elastin levels for a visible plumping effect. Skin appears brighter and revitalised with a youthful looking vitality.

Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare Refresh PM Eye Serum ($68.00 for oz. from Osmosis and Skin Care RX): This is a very thick and rich serum, with a texture more like a cream than a serum, and it is even more concentrated than the daytime eye serum, I use the tiniest amount, warm it between my fingers and then gently pat it into my warm, freshly cleansed under-eye area. It sinks in, but leaves behind a slight protective barrier. It is ultra-moisturizing and nourishing, and it leaves skin soft and silky smooth. Furthermore, it plumps the appearance of fine lines, diminishes the appearance of dark circles, and reduces the appearance of under-eye puffiness.
According to Osmosis,

I don't really have dark circles or puffiness, but I am a bit bothered by the hollow underneath my eyes. Nothing to do about that though...ReplyDelete
This definitely add moisture as well, but won't do much about the hollow under the eyes. Definitely great for dark circles, puffiness and fine lines!Delete
I'm one of those weirdos whose primary eye concerns are the lid and above the lid rather than under the eye. So I'm always on the lookout for creams/serums I can use in those areas as well as for crow's feet. Nevertheless, the richness of the PM Eye Serum sounds like it may be something I could use too!ReplyDelete
That hardly makes you a weirdo, Allison. I have not tried either of these on my eyelids, and think that the PM might be a bit thick for the lids, but you would have to try to see if it worked well in that capacity.Delete
I've only tried the Refresh pm which I purchased from my aesthetician. I love it for evening use and need to try the daytime formula sometime.ReplyDelete
The daytime formula is definitely a lot lighter, and better suited for the day!Delete
My son has not let me sleep longer than 4 hour increments lately, so I'm desperately in need of a super concentrated eye cream that can combat these circles! lolReplyDelete
This will definitely help with the dark circles, but it won't help your son sleep!Delete
AHA, we're on the same track. I was wondering what the PM was like and how it was different from the daytime one. I've used Refresh both morning and night and have been very happy with the outcome.ReplyDelete
I loved your review of the daytime one, and definitely think that you would prefer the PM version at night. It is a lot thicker and more appropriate for the night.Delete
So far I have only tried makeups from Osmosis but I do some of their products sold in clinicsReplyDelete
Yes, you can definitely get some of their products in clinics, and I definitely think that the skincare is worth trying.Delete
I have dark circles anddddd puffy under eyes. I need it!ReplyDelete
Then these are definitely a good fit for you, Brooke!Delete
The serum sounds so good!ReplyDelete
They both are very effective!Delete
This sounds like it's something I'd enjoy. I have not tried anything from Osmosis before but I'm enjoying reading and learning about the brand.ReplyDelete
It's definitely a brand worthy of your attention. I have tried some of their makeup and skincare, and am definitely very impressed by the efficacy and quality!Delete
So many products do nothing for dark circles, so this duo sounds pretty great.ReplyDelete
That's definitely true, but many dark circles can't be treated with topical products– depending on the cause!Delete
I have puffiness on the upper eyelid.. will this product work for that too?ReplyDelete
Hi there, I only ever used these below my eyes. I just check the Osmosis website, and it appears that these two products have been discontinued, and since my review is 3 1/2 years old I can't be certain when they may have stopped making them. I will say, however, that they make really nice products, and they seem to have a new eye cream that might be worth trying.Delete
