I bought this stuff for a specific area of my eyes- the lower outer corners. I wanted to be fair to the claim on the box- 4 weeks for visible results. It's been 6 now and I do see and feel a difference. Fine lines have improved, not disappeared. The area is well hydrated and seems "tighter." Im impressed. I would recommend.

What a scam these Lift & Luminate products are. I'm incredibly disappointed in Boots No7 and never would have expected this from them.

The label claims "Containing Matrixyl". These products do not contain Matrixyl at all, but Matrixyl 3000, which is entirely different. But that would actually be a good thing...if they weren't still lying their pants off. What they don't mention is that Lift & Luminate contains only TRACE AMOUNTS of Matrixyl 3000 that cannot hope to have any effect on the skin.

How do I know this? Because the peptides are listed in the ingredients AFTER the three paraben preservatives, just before the colourants! Matrixyl 3000 needs to be present at a minimum dose of 3%, and ideally 5-8%, to be effective. Boots No7 have tossed in a truly tiny amount - just a fraction of a percent - of these peptides, in order to make the label claim.

The Night Serum actually has one of the Matrixyl 3000 peptides as the very LAST ingredient - probably an immeasurable amount.

It's shameful commercial behaviour. I actually thought this was illegal.

Also cringe-worthy is that the US TV show The Doctors, which is quite good and provides some valuable health messages, has obviously been bought with the Boots No7 advertising dollar because they promote the line unashamedly. I had hoped for so much better.

I was given a small sample of this when i went to boots last week, so i thought i'd try it and see what it's like, and if it would get rid of my dark under eye circles.
it made them even worse! i looked like i'd had the roughest nights sleep ever!
this always happens when i use an eye cream that says 'lighten' or 'luminate', so if you've had a similar experience with other eye creams designed to lighten the under eye area then AVOID this one!
i gave it 4 lippies because i gave the sample to my mum to try and she loved it, and it did work (it just gave me black eyes)

This is a reasonably priced eye cream which seems to be a reincarnation of No 7 Uplifting Eye Cream but a little lighter and with much improved packaging. The tube is much easier to use than the old style pot that you couldn't reach into.

Not a miracle cream but quite gentle and does have some lifting properties.
