If you are interested in eye creams that reduce dark circles and puffiness from aging, there can only be one reason - you looked in the mirror and saw an aging lady looking back advertising your age to everyone. And since looking young and energetic is important to you, you’d just as soon keep your age to yourself.
So, the question is, will Dermasilk 90-Second Eye Lift Serum hide your age or expose it anyway, but at your expense?
Dermasilk by Cosmedex, a division of Biotech, claims to make you look 10-years younger in 90-seconds or less by tightening the droopy skin around the eye and lifting the corners to make you look younger. If they deliver on this problem, it means - problem solved.
Of the claims that Dermasilk makes, the one that is most accurate is that it works in 90-seconds. It seems that all the ingredients are listed, so you don’t have to wonder what is in the formula. There is a 60-day money back guarantee from the company and it is competitively priced at approximately $49 for a full 1-ounce bottle. This is one of the few products that offers a 0.25 oz trial size so that you don’t have to buy the big bottle right away. Those are about all the real pluses.
When it comes to the minuses, there are more than a few worth mentioning, but the two that stand out the most are; 1) the serum contains an unknown fragrance, and 2) how the ingredients work is not explained. Frankly, that’s enough for most of us girls, but in addition most of the hundreds of reviews are very negative and some are downright angry. There are a number of complaints that leave a visible white residue and only tightens the skin making the puffiness gather together in folds. That about covers the primary list of real minuses.
The list of ingredients is very short and sweet, and most seem to be organic in nature. It doesn’t appear they left anything out, which may be good, as long as you’re not allergic to any of them. And of course, just to make sure you aren’t, you need to read the list.
Ingredients: Fragrance, xanthan gum, purified water, soy protein phthalate, bisabolol, chamomile extract, Canadian willow bark extract, sodium alginate, and phenoxyethanol.
If there were not so many negative reviews, it would be easy to assume that some were planted. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of reviews both on the Dermasilk website and several major third party sites that offer the product are extremely negative and many are just plain angry. Making puffiness gather into folds is also not going to be very attractive. Though they offer a trial size option, the effects of the serum are temporary at best. There are definitely better eye serums out there that do not cheat on their results.
