Top 3 Eye Treatments

best eye creamsWhy is a Separate Eye Treatment Important?

One of the earliest signs of aging can be seen around the eyes, so you must take care of this delicate skin starting early on. I’ll never forget the first eye product I used when I was 18 – Clinique’s Cooling Eye Gel.

I always loved the cooling factor and it worked well to reduce puffiness (my only complaint at that age), even though it had a bit of a tacky residue which gels can sometimes leave.

As I began to age, I started to notice those fine lines and wrinkles popping up around my eyes, and I realized that I needed something stronger, so I stepped up my game and started using serums and creams made specifically to target the eye area.

Let me tell you, it has made a difference over the years! I am now in my early 40’s and I don’t even want to imagine what my wrinkles would look like had I not taken care of my skin, especially the eye area.

Prevention is key, and continual pampering of the delicate eye area is imperative to keep your wrinkles at bay and your eyes looking young and perky!

Skinception Eyelasticity Website

Skinception’s Eyelasticity Age-Defying Eye Therapy is my #1 choice for an eye treatment and works quickly and effectively to diminish the signs of aging and nourish the entire eye area.

It has a series of clinically proven active ingredients that boost elastin and collagen production while improving lymphatic circulation.

skinception eyelasticity
no makeup, but no puffy eyes!

This works to drain away excess water and fight puffiness at the root of the problem. It also works very effectively to lighten those hard to treat dark under eye circles.

This product has eyes looking more youthful in as little as 14 days, smoothing away wrinkles, laugh lines, softening crows fee and transforming the delicate skin around the eye area to look more firm and youthful.

Skinception products all boast the most recent developments in skin care technology while using no parabens or synthetics, instead blending patented peptides like SYN®-COLL and Pro-Coll-One® with natural skin care ingredients like shea butter and retinol.

This particular eye treatment is well suited for women who have fine lines and wrinkles, under eye bags, dark circles, puffiness, and works very effectively to diminish all of these at once.

Eyelasticity comes in a bottle with a pump applicator which dispenses the perfect amount for your eye area with a little going a long way, while preserving the product’s freshness.

Skinception’s Eyelasticity worked very well for me, with my problem areas being puffiness in the morning, and fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also gentle enough to use right on my eyelids to immediately diminish crepy lids!

I have extremely sensitive eyes (blepharitis/ocular rosacea) so using a product that doesn’t irritate my eyes is very important!

My #2 Eye Treatment – Meaningful Beauty Eye Enhancing Serum & Lifting Eye Crème

Meaningful Beauty Eye Treatments
Meaningful Beauty Eye Enhancing Serum & Lifting Eye Crème

Price: $49.95 (for a 5 piece skin care set + 2 free gifts)

Read My Personal Review On Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty…

Meaningful Beauty Website

Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty has TWO eye treatments that I love using together. This powerful duo is my #2 recommended eye treatment!

The Eye Enhancing Serum is a nourishing lightweight creamy serum full of antioxidants and a unique dipeptide which helps reduce the appearance of deep set wrinkles and crow’s feet while fighting off oxidative stress which causes premature aging.

This is a cream I can pat both underneath my eyes and right onto my eyelids and it works quickly to hydrate, plump and smooth out the delicate eye area.

The second treatment which I use on top is the Lifting Eye Crème. This is a multi-functional product designed to visibly reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles as well as smooth, lift and firm the eye area.

Using the Eye Enhancing Serum together with the Lifting Eye Crème gives me a great result and instantly makes my eyes look younger, hydrated and perky. They also create the perfect foundation to apply your primer or eye shadow for flawless looking eyes.

If you’ve read any of my reviews, you would know that my eyes are extremely sensitive and Meaningful Beauty is fragrance free, made with sensitive skin in mind.

The only downside to this recommendation is that these products aren’t sold separately. For $49.95 you’ll receive a 5 piece skin care set which will include the Lifting Eye cream, and one of the free gifts is the second eye product, the Eye Enhancing Serum, along with the Glowing Serum.

Cindy’s Meaningful Beauty is a great deal for someone looking for not just an eye treatment, but an entire skin care collection that works beautifully together.

My #3 Eye Treatment – Revitol Eye Cream

Revitol Eye CreamPrice:  $39.95

Read My Personal Review on Revitol Eye Cream…

Revitol Eye Cream Website

Revitol’s Eye Cream is my #3 choice for an eye treatment and is highly moisturizing. You’ll notice that my top two choices are serums, but if you prefer a creamy moisturizer, then you will love Revitol Eye Cream.

In my personal experience with using Revitol, I have noticed a marked improvement in the fine lines and wrinkles underneath my eyes, and it also helps to quickly reduce puffiness in the mornings – which are my two main complaints with my eye area!

Another reason why I love this product, is how it feels when you put it on. It has a nice light and creamy texture, which is absorbed quickly into the skin to give you that soft and supple feeling. It is not greasy, nor does it give you that feeling that it’s sitting on top of your skin.

It works immediately to sooth your delicate eye areas, smoothing out lines and wrinkles, reducing puffiness, and giving your skin a nice foundation and protection for the day.

While I do prefer a more serum-type eye treatment like my top 2 choices, Revitol Eye Cream is a nice cream offering an alternative and a bit less expensive than the others.

Our #1 Eye Treatment – Eyelasticity – Age Defying Eye Therapy

Skinception Eyelasticity Eye TreamentSkinception’s Eyelasticity is a creamy, fast absorbing serum that works quickly to reduce puffiness, plump up fine lines and wrinkles, and lighten dark circles.

Fragrance free, no parabens, no synthetics and comes in a pump which keeps it fresh and free of bacteria.

It feels amazing and works fast to give you younger, more perky eyes!

I'm 63 and I love these products and won't use anything else. My skin is softer and the Ultra Filling and Lifting Serum and Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules sure make a difference to smooth out my wrinkles! I do feel younger since I've been using. I love that I can swap out products for my shipment if I want to try something new like a face mask. She has a lot to choose from. Customer service is excellent and I'm a picky consumer.

I love that you've made it your top product. I've been using Cindy's products for four years and my skin has never looked better. Your spot on with your review, her two eye treatments work great. My problem is puffiness and dark circles and these products have made a difference. I'm not crazy about the spf day cream but I'm sure it's making a difference as well. Nothing ages skin like the sun. ~Deb

Hi Rachel, Thank you for the information about the eye cream scams. Unfortunately for me I had ordered the free trial before I saw your blogs. However, I just ordered 3 days ago and maybe I cant stop the future charges to my credit card. The company is called Revyve Skin. I looked it up and found they have two different addresses in Nevada. If I cant get them to cancel any future orders, I will definitely cancel my credit card. Thanks again for you insight.

Rachel, thanks for your thorough review on Elite Serum. I have severe dark circles and puffiness and I am impressed with how quickly it works. You were right that it depuffs very quickly and feels as gentle as water going on. My dark circles are becoming lighter each day. Nothing has worked this well so thank you.

Q: hi. just wondering .. I have few wrinkles but cant seem to get rid of the bags under my eyes which is the absolute best to treat that? -Donna

A: Hi Donna, thanks for your message. I would give Meaningful Beauty a try. I'm absolutely loving the two eye products used together, the Eye Enhancing Serum and the Lifting and Firming Eye cream. What I've noticed when I have puffy eyes is that it's related to my diet. If I eat really clean, non-inflammatory foods, in conjuction with good eye products, my puffiness and bags really diminish. One night of pizza and my under eye puffiness is back. So, think about this too because a lot of it is your body holding on to sodium and foods that cause inflammation in the body (high carbs, sugar, alcohol, etc). However, I know we can't always eat perfectly but also increase your water intake. Drink lots of lemon water and that will help also. But I do recommend trying Meaningful Beauty, but if you don't want a whole skin care line (which with this you do have to buy the set), then go with my #2, the Skinception Eyelasticity. It's also a good product that increases the lymphatic drainage underneath the eye. I can use both products both under my eyes and right on my eyelids, in case your eyes are sensitive. Both are great choices!

Q: Hi Thank you for the information, I have been fighting a loosing battle with my eyes. I am 28 and look nearer 38 and it is really getting me down. I have fine lines that continue to get worse and now noticed my dark circles are getting worse to the point where my skin is now looking sunken in. I look awful. My skin is very thin and crepey. I get married next year and I am thinking about calling it off because I am dreading what my skin will look like in another years time. I started aging this time last year and have continued to at an accelerated rate. my question is, with the elite serum am I going to be causing any lasting damage to the skin? Is it too early to be trying something this intensive? what I am worried about is exhausting my skin by the time I am 30 and looking even older! Any information would be greatly appreciated, I am at my wits end and feeling very ugly -Becki Terry

A: Becky, hi there! I'm so sorry you're feeling so down about your skin and considering calling off your wedding. Don't do that! You're marrying the love of your life and I'm certain he loves you no matter what and thinks you're beautiful!

Elite Serum will definitely NOT cause permanent damage. No good skin care should do that. It's basically a formula full of peptides and the formula is extremely gentle (no fragrance and feels as gentle as water going on). And it is not too early to be trying a good eye product, especially with your concerns. I would give it a try.

Before my wedding, I indulged in a few facials leading up to my wedding and I also stayed out of the sun completely. Like vampire mode. If you can afford to treat yourself, it really does make a difference. Or, treat yourself to a series of micro dermabrasion treatments to smooth the skin and make it look more radiant (that will also help with the crepeyness).

But you definitely need a separate eye treatment no matter what. What have you been using on your eyes up until now? Another thing you can think about is a liver flush. The liver has a huge job of processing and filtering out all the toxins in our body, and with the skin being the largest organ - it will show if you're not healthy on the inside. The best thing you can do for your skin, aside from topical treatments which help, is to eat health and increase your antioxidant intake.

Eat a huge bowl of antioxidant fruits for breakfast (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and papaya are my faves) and increase your veggie intake. Cut out processed foods, alcohol and wheat. I just did my second liver flush after four years and it's made a difference in my skin, and I lost 6 lbs. I know this is a lot of information, but you're gearing up for your wedding so you need to pull out all the stops to look and feel your best.

I have a pending post on my recent liver flush so stayed tuned for that. In the meantime, treat yourself and I do think the Elite Serum can help you. It does a great job to reduce puffiness and reduce wrinkle depth, and while I don't have dark circles so can't testify to its effectiveness, it is formulated to help increase the lymphatic drainage underneath the eye which will help flush out the darkness. Look up the Hulda Clark liver flush if you'd like to do some research on it.... and let me know if you have questions. Good luck!

A: Adele, did you see these on the actual Dr. Oz show, or did you see an ad (which is a scam) that says Dr. Oz recommends these products? I've never heard of them. Most of the free trial scams make bogus claims that Dr. Oz is involved in some way, when he's really not. It's my advice to steer clear of those. Rachel

    I had menopause at 38. I knew that was making my eyes look so terrible. I went on hormone replacement but stopped at 54. I’ve had 6 cancers, 6 rounds of chemo and3 rounds of radiation, to include from the nose down. Last Dec. I had a stem cell transplant. I am 66 yo. Is there any hope for me? The crepey eyelids come over my lashes sometimes. The dark circles and puffiness are awful. I have extremely fair skin, I’ve never liked the sun. My skin is smooth and I get great compliments. The eyes in such fair skin look like what mother used to call, 2 burnt wholes in a blanket. I had many surgeries and lost both breasts. They did plastic surgery on me because I looked a flat chested pregnant woman. I lost almost 100 lbs. over the last 12 yrs. I weigh now what I did when I was married 46 yrs ago. I am disabled and had to give up so much of activities. I am in my head about 25. I look better in my than over 49 yrs. ago. I have always been a fashionista. I have a ton of shoes and clothing and coats, etc. I love to dress because I do it so well and I have people complimenting, asking how to choose clothing for their body etc. I am artistic and love colors and textures. I look good in my clothes but you don’t want to see underneath. I have a very scarred body. Now I was always known for my blue green eyes and long lashes. They were my best feature but now are my worst. I need help or is it too late? My skin needs lots of care which I have given it since I was 13.

    Hi Rachel:

    I sent an e-mail last week regarding Tru Belleza: I got scammed and am wondering if u have heard from others besides me? I have now read ur reviews on Elite Serum Rx and am interested, however, it sounds like you can only buy it on line. I am now terrified to do so since I have never heard of them. If it sounds too good to be true it usually is Also, upon reading further, they mentioned Dr. Oz, which concerned me even more. Rachel, can u please help I have serious bags under my eyes (in the last two years) partially from stress, I’m sure. I was hoping for an eye cream I could purchase from a reputable store. I am scared of getting scammed again.

    • Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Karin, thanks for your comment. I hear from women every day who have been scammed, plenty from Tru Belleza. Elite Serum is great, especially for puffy eyes and bags – those pictures in the review are of my eyes. What I said in the article about Dr. Oz was that he likes the “ingredient” Argireline….he never recommended this actual product. Elite Serum does contain Argireline…..Dr. Oz said on one of his programs that this was the best “needle free” ingredient you should look for in certain products to tighten and firm. So that was my reference. My #2 product, Eyelasticity is also really good for bags since it increases the lymphatic drainage underneath the eye. Both are good options, but both are also online only. All of my top products are from reputable manufacturers. If you are adamant against purchasing online, you could visit Sephora and there are plenty of options there as well. Peter Thomas Roth is a good line to try, always loved those products. I also like Philosophy, but I can’t think of any eye treatments specific to those lines that I’ve tried that I can quote you on.

  • B. Olson

    I am almost 40, genetically I inherited (from both sides of my family) very puffy eyes (bags, is the term I use)…everyone always asks if I am tiered. The more I sleep the worse they get…what could help with this?
    Have you heard or seen the product Valere Anti-Aging serum? If so what do yo think about it?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi B, steer clear from Valere, it’s one of those short term (12 day) free trial scams, hardly enough time to receive it and try it to see whether you like it. On the 12th day, they will charge you the full $89 for the product and it’s impossible to return. I only recommend 30 day trials if you’re going to do one (Lifecell is actually the ONLY trial product I recommend, it’s my top anti-aging treatment). My top eye treatment is Elite Serum RX and it’s the best thing I’ve used for puffiness and under eye bags. It works quickly and is full of peptides and helps to drain the area quickly. It’s also very gentle, it’s like a liquidy serum that absorbs quickly and leaves no sticky residue. I highly recommend it. I’m 43 and always wake up with puffy eyes and they depuff within a couple of minutes.

  • Melissa

    I am 20 year old female and I have very dark eye circles that just don’t seem to go away even when I get a lot of sleep. I didn’t have them 2 years ago, they seemed to slowly develop. What can I use to help me permanently fix this issue?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Melissa,
      Thank you for your comment. You are way too young for dark circles, so you need to get to the root of the problem. At your age, are you aware of any food allergies that could be causing inflammation? You may want to get tested by an allergist. I would recommend Elite Serum first, as it’s my strongest and most effective eye treatment, however Eyelasticity would also work for you to reduce dark circles. They both have ingredients that will increase blood flow to and boost lymphatic drainage, which will help to reduce puffiness and help the blood to not “pool” in the under eye area which is what causes the dark circles to become more noticeable. They will also both work to increase collagen and plump up the eye area, which will help it so your skin is not so thin underneath your eye which will also help the blood vessels to be less apparent. Be sure and drink lots of water to stay hydrated as well and flush out any irritants.

  • Lauren Bachar

    Hi Rachel, As a just over 50 I have noticed LOTS of changes in my skin, elasticity and wrinkles. Up until now, I had very (genetics?) youthful skin and often looked at lease 10 yrs younger than I really was. I have taken good care of my skin – I don’t go out in sun and if I do I use sunscreen, I don’t smoke and only drink very occassionally. 50 is hard, hormonal changes especially have made my skin SENSITIVE to products that contain retinal, vitamin C, and hydrocloric acid (not sure I spelled that last one correctly) Collagen products seem okay but I have not found one that really makes a difference. So my million dollar question (to this million dollar industry) is what is my best choice? I am going crazy trying to research a good face and eye cream that will smooth and diminish fine lines I am seeing and a tiny bit of sagging. I liked the vids you made to review Lifecell and Kollagen Intensiv but I think they have some of the adverse ingredient in them I mentioned. I chatted with Lifecell and they said all 3 were in their product. I would appreciate your more detailed help. Thanks so much – great site! Lauren

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Williams

      Hi Lauren,

      Thanks for the kind words. With your sensitivities, you should go with Revitol. I especially like the Revitol Eye Cream, but the whole system would work too. I checked the ingredient list, and none of the ones you need to avoid are on it so you should be fine. Give it a try, and be sure to come back and let me know how it went.
