Confusingly, Desert Essence has created 2 versions of this product, one "Instant Lift and Firm" serum (.5 fluid oz) and the original one, which is in a 1 fluid oz bottle. I am writing about the latter, haven't tried the former. Regardless, this is a HG product for me. It really hydrates my crepey-looking skin, and creates a wonderful makeup base. I am on my 3rd bottle of this stuff and will not go without it. I called the company to find out what the actual peptide percentages were, all they would tell me is that it contains 12 % peptides, total. The former product ("instant") probably has much more. I have been using this daily, for several months, and my crows feet look better every day. YMMV, but this one has really worked for me. I would like to mention that the Age Reversal cleanser is horrible (loaded with proplyene glycol, it feels toxic & doesn't clean well). Also the cream is pretty ineffective and gave me milia. Go with this serum, give it a shot for 20-25 bucks and see if it does something for you. I have yet to try the eye cream but probably will. I am currently using Andrea's "Wrinkle Release" eye cream which has matrixyl and is only 9.00 from the drugstore. I think this product is pretty good, too.
