This is a wonderful eye serum! I had been auditioning so many lately, that I was beginning to feel dizzy from it all. I never thought I would ever have to go down this road again, but my favorite eye serum is no longer an option for me. I had been using Isomers One3000ForEyes for years, and the product really transformed my eye area. Like so many others out there, the serum also turn rancid on me as well (several times in fact) despite all efforts to keep the product in a cool, dark and sterile environment. I lost a lot of money over the years because of this problem until I found a solution all on my own (which was to refrigerate the serum). It was also very insulting to have the company deny that a problem even existed when they knew full well that it did. My solution to refrigerate the serum worked very well for years, but now they have altered the formula to the point where it burns my eyes (it never did that before ever). My recent purchase was a nightmare. I wanted to cry. My eyes were left red and irritated for days. After denials that a change had even been made (the proof was under my eyes, and not in a lab somewhere), I learned that a few changes had in fact been made by the company (I knew that something had happened)! It was like pulling teeth to get this out of them, but I finally got to the truth. That and a terrible customer service experience with Isomers directly, made me realize it was time to say goodbye.
I was not looking forward to all of this again. I had already tried every high end cream or serum you can think of. I've tried everything from the famous to the obscure, and back again. Drugstore brands, high end brands, and anything in between. I thought God not again. This time I was smarter. I took the cutting edge ingredients of my once beloved Isomers eye serum, and googled the ingredients to find serums that way. I knew it was the Eyeliss, Matrixyl, Haloxyl, Hyaluronic acid, and peptides that were responsible for performing the miracles I saw underneath my eyes. I just had to find something similar if that were even possible. Most eye creams and serums do not contain these ingredients because they are very expensive and cutting edge. I had my work cut out for me. I spent almost 7 hours online researching and cross referencing and so on. I finally found a small group of eye serums that contained one or more of these ingredients, and ordered them all in for testing. This and one other product blew the rest away. I returned all of the others, and decided to keep this lovely gem.
Elite eye serum has every big gun ingredient you can think of. This is a very potent eye serum. It's packed with anything you could ever want or need for your eyes. Not only that, but it didn't even slightly irritate my super sensitive eyes (that in of itself is a miracle). It's actually very soothing and nourishing. It has all the cutting edge ingredients I was looking for and more! It comes in a very nice pump that could last you months and months (I am guessing at least 6-8 months or more from my own usage, which is twice a day). You can also gauge how much you have left in the pump because of it's clear design. My eyes look amazing again. They had started to plummet after that experience with Isomers. They had gotten crepey, and a bit haggard looking. I was very upset. This brought my eyes back to the state they were in before, and even surpassed my expectations!
One thing to keep in mind, is that most serums by nature are VERY drying. Serums are usually more potent, and pack a more powerful punch than cream. They are absorbed more fully than cream. Their delivery system is better. The only problem is that they can be drying, which is why you should always seal your eyes with some form of moisture afterwards (that's the key). Once your serum fully sinks in, you simply apply some moisture over it. I've been using Dream Products Eye Lift for years (a cheap and wonderful eye cream all on it's own). It's packed with vitamins, caffeine and other ingredients not typically found in serums, so I get the best of the both worlds (and the added moisture I need making it a perfect marriage). My eyes look incredible again! I am thrilled to have found this product! The cherry on this sundae, is that it's completely unscented. This is exactly what I was looking for!
The only downside is that there is a restocking fee if you want to return this to the company. That put me off a bit, but not enough to keep me from trying this beauty (and I'm so glad I did). It costs $99.00 through Amazon plus free shipping. If you go through the company directly, it costs a bit more (Amazon is definitely the better deal, and it's shipped directly from the same manufacturer either way). The pump can shoot out a bit more than needed. The way to get around this, is to simply split that amount between both eyes and you're all set. This serum is absolutely incredible. Once you see the ingredients list, you will know what I mean. It has everything I've wanted to try, plus the cutting edge ingredients I was looking for. The fact that it doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin is such a bonus. Happy to have found this. Definitely worth trying.
