I love this line so i thought I would try this product. I often wake up with puffy, tired eyes. I have only used it for three days, but I swear my eyes look younger. I don't really like the way it feels, but I like what I see in the mirror!

Here's the thing- this won't do anything if you need it and it can't do anything if you don't. My mom gave this to me to see how it fairs on a younger skin (see above). My limited scientific knowledge and my basic common sense tells me that what must come up must come down, and nothing in a tube is going to tighten your face enough to prevent smile lines from reappearing while still allowing you to smile. Plus, a smile is much more beautiful that a tight face...and seems almost as rare. So smile and be happy you lived long enough to show the signs.

His instant firmX eye temporary eye tightner works as advertised. You need to practice and use a brush to apply. His website has a video to show you aplication. I put this on before work and it lasts me all day. The instructions say not to use over an eye cream, but I have and works just fine. The difference before and after are incredible. That said, practice, practice, practice. worth every penny.

I didn't buy this product, it was given to my mom as a gift at Sephora. I tried it out myself, hehe, and this stuff is amazing!!! I could literally feel my skin tightening in seconds. When my mom (46) tried it out, her skin looked much tighter than before. Only downside is that it leaves a white residue on your face. You have to apply a minimal amount of makeup over it in order for it to be covered up. But I am definitely buying this product when I'm older. I'd say it's worth the price.

This product is great! It took awhile for me to find the easiest way to apply. Simply add a little water to product & apply to your face evenly with upward motion to get a lifting look. Then if you apply Dermablend makeup with a smudge brush....I promise you will love the results!

This stuff would be great for someone who doesn't need to put any makeup or sunscreen or moisturizer on over top of it. If you need anything other than a bare face, forget it! As soon as you put anything on top of this, it releases it's magical tightening properties & you're back where you started, except with some white cast on your skin. Also, if you do put this on & then try to wear foundation over top, it WILL make your foundation look more pale. I put a good layer of this on my bare skin & it worked to really tighten & smoothe, but that didn't last because I need sunscreen etc.

This is an interesting product. I don't have any major wrinkles or sagging issues since I'm only just about to turn 30, but I use this product occasionally for a different reason. Over the past 2 or 3 years, due to hormonal and stress issues, the texture of my skin has completely gone down the tubes. I have always had large open pores on and next to my nose, which are now beyond the point of effectively covering. Recently, some volume has left my face as well, and I've started developing nasolabial lines. I bought this product on a whim to help hide the NL folds when I wanted to look my best during an important conference for work. This product is so bizarre! I applied it to my face once it was completely dry after washing, and it became tight as a drum, in a weird, unnatural way. It looked visibly odd, but I did note that my pores became TEENY. Almost like real person pores...! As others have mentioned, the tightening effect (and texture) of this product is effected by moisture from the products you put on after it. I recently tried putting liquid sunscreen on top of this, and it became oddly powdery like others have mentioned, and I had to wash it off it was so bad. But at the conference, I used a silicone-based primer (Tarte BB primer) without much moisture to further fill my pores, and it further helped the outward appearance of the texture of my skin while retaining the tightening effect. I applied powder on top of this combination for the first few days, which didn't work very well, and on the last day I applied cream foundation, and it was great. The cream foundation is less moist than liquid, but it does affect the tightening effect a little bit. But it actually helped tone down the "alien" look you get when you first put this on. This is probably the combination I'll be using in the future when I need to look great. This isn't an everyday product for me, and obviously I'm not the intended target for this product, but I do think I like it for what I've used it for (although it's weirdly special FX-y and I wish I just had better skin :'( ). I would recommend anyone else with texture/first signs of aging issues to give it a try for special events.

Absolutely terrible. Residue won't go away unless you remove all of the product. Instructions say to shake it before use but it comes in a tube and it would be as if you tried to shake toothpaste. Not possible. It dries to a white film and looks obvious. Following the instructions to a "T" didn't help. I'm taking it back and getting a refund.

There is so much information in prior reviews on this product, I am just going to give my basic "how I use it" and my brief opinion, period. I tested this for a couple of weeks and here are my comments:1. I found the best way for me to use this is over serum or moisturizer and under primer or foundation (if you're wearing it). I then top it off with a good finishing powder. It works better with mineral powder foundation than liquid or cream due to the residue mentioned in every prior review (and below in my own). But with serious effort it can look great with liquid foundation (a lot of pre-blotting required).2. It fills in fine lines REALLY well which is very impressive, but I am not seeing a "firming" effect, so I'd call it a serious line filler.3. There is a funky, dry, cakey white residue you must dab off with water before applying makeup. This is not easy to do effectively or completely which is a BIG negative. However, IF you can successfully combat the residue, the reduction in lines IS spectacular and the "fill in" effect lasts for a long time (all day). 5. I will use this occasionally when I am getting dressed up or for a photo as it's WAY too much extra time and work to use everyday. 6. I got this as a gwp and I think the tube I have will last forever as you only need a tiny, tiny bit. The price ($48) isn't bad for 3.4 oz either. Seriously a lifetime supply!

I absolutely adore Peter Thomas Roth's products. I haven't found one I don't like...yet. Not sure about this one. I'm still on the fence about Instant FIRMx. I just don't get it. I want to understand the product. I really do. The idea behind it is wonderful. It's a "temporary tightener", oh yes it is. The instructions tell you this exactly:"FOLLOW THESE 4 STEPS TO LOOK YEARS YOUNGER: 1. Shake well. Sparingly apply a thin layer to freshly cleansed, dry skin. 2. Remain expressionless. Product will dry within 3-7 minutes. 3. When face feels pulled and tight, look in the mirror. At this moment, you'll look years younger. Enjoy! 4. Use either damp cloth, cotton swab or fingertips to pat away any visible excess residue. TIPS: Results of INSTANT FIRMx can depend on your skin type. Work with it, using these tips, to find what works best for you.Apply a thick layer, let dry, splash away excess residue and pat dry. Apply a thin layer and use a damp cloth, cotton swab or fingertips to pat away excess residue. Mix INSTANT FIRMx with your favorite moisturizer or foundation. Use as a firming treatment masque! Apply a generous layer, like a masque, and leave on for up to an hour. Splash off excess residue and experience dramatic firming results. For external use only."Once applied, you cannot change your facial expression (you better look happy) because this product is going to firm and tighten your lines, wrinkles, crow's feet and whatever else plagues your skin. It does, it really does tighten your skin. It takes about ten minutes for a full dry to happen. Here's the catch, tho. Look in the mirror and your face is now pasty-white, because the FIRMx has dried to its lighter shade. Your skin feels wonderfully tight and firm, but it's now wearing this mask. Now the instructions tell you to use a cloth, a cotton swab or fingertips to remove the "excess" or "visible residue" so you can look human again. Good luck there. I have used all of the above plus facial sponges, muslin cloths, cotton balls and whatever else I could think of to remove it but there is always some still left. Just when I would think I removed all of it, I'd look in the mirror again, and I would see more. Then I tried using different moisturizers to blend the excess in. That wouldn't work, either. And once I started removing it, it would break up into little pieces instead of a layer, so it was no longer a smooth finish. So if I wanted to put foundation on top, the blending was very difficult because the little specks of it would cake off. I finally began using it as a mask, and since I do keep all of my products in my refrigerator, it goes on cold, which feels wonderful. I leave it on for an hour, then take it off with a facial sponge. My face does feel a tad bit more tightened, yes. Does it keep it tightened? I'd say for a few hours. Firmer? Again, a short time. It's a temporary product that gives me a lively lift when I'm in the mood or need for one. As a mask, it feels absolutely wonderful while it's on, and that's what I like about it. There are different types of masks for different needs out there on the market. This is a mask for older women who might need some firming and tightening. It's nice to use to wake up your face, if that makes sense to you. Without a doubt, you feel this mask, in a good way. I've also mixed a very small amount in with different moisturizers and applied it to different parts of my facial areas. It's tricky, but it can be done. A little actually goes a long way, and my tube of FIRMx is lasting me quite some time. Since it has Vitamins C, E, B5 and Vitamin A in it, I know the ingredients are good for my skin. Plus PTR is cruelty-free, which is also why I purchase their products. All in all, an interesting product that grows on you.Update: 12/26/12I've recently tried Instant FIRMx Eye Temporary Eye Tightener. Please see my review for this PTR product, as I've had much better success with this one and the formulation seemed different.
