First, I was one of those ladies who fell for the high pressure pitch for lioness pearl facelift cream. (See my review) It really did reduce my bags and lines. Other similar products include instantly ageless, and sudden change. All work similarly, by tightening the loose skin around the eye socket thus eliminating the shadow that causes dark circles under the eye. But I didnâ€™t want to order overpriced product online (ranging from just over 100$ to 700$) so off to Ulta I went in search of something reasonably priced that produced similar results. Found this and purchased the small sample for 9$. Wow. I like it better than the 130$ lioness product! First, you need just a pea sized amount. Wet fingertips and apply all over face. Wait about 3 minutes. If you see white residue, youâ€™ve used too much or you didnâ€™t spread it thin enough. Face feels tight and at first a little plasticy (think Donatello Versace shiny). But it softens up quickly and looks natural enough to go sans makeup. It reduced pores, eliminates bags and most wrinkles and reduces the crevices of deep wrinkles to a minimum. Do not add liquid makeup...foundation (if needed) should be a mineral powder and powder blush and shadow. You could probably add spot concealer if needed. Lasts all day, I would probably reapply at night if I was going out. I will definitely repurchase the larger tube. But even the small tube is a good value. Worth trying and experimenting, especially if you have been intrigued by all the instant facelift products that are popping up on Facebook. I wear very little makeup but this would be a staple in my everyday routine.

No. I got a very small sample from Sephora and the directions were limited. So I read the reviews on MA. I put a very small amount around my eyes over serum. When I checked after about 5 minutes I could really see the tightening effect ... and I liked it. But when I went to my makeup mirror I saw white residue - not good. I was planning on going makeup free today (it's a holiday!) so I put a bit of moisturizer and it really didn't help. I finally put on some BB cream but that seemed to accentuate the residue. I'm too lazy to wash everything off and start over so I'm not sure yet how easily it comes off. I will not use this again. Maybe others have better skills at applying it or it might be a better fit for their skin. Please note - because my review is based on a sample I could not rate price or packaging however MA requires responses - I used 3 lippies and I hope that doesn't skew the results.

I've been using this product for my aging (60's) skin and it always tightens, takes years off my face. Mainly used when I'm going out. I'm on my sixth tube and will use this product forever. Perhaps the reviewers who were less than enthusiastic had fairly tight skin to begin with.

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.
