Eye Serum Review Rating: 99/100
(Best All Around Eye Serum for eye wrinkles, bags, moisture)
Elite Skin introduced this product in 2009 with a lot of success. It re-vamped the product in late 2011 and really started taking things to an entirely different level. Just look at the applicator syringe below! As of July 2nd, we have an updated review of the new Elite Serum Syringe HERE.
A never-seen before combination of cosmeceuticals and powerhouse antioxidants promised to reduce visibility of eye wrinkles, treat dark circles, and deflate puffiness. All of this plus a plumping effect for the naturally depleting skin under the eyes and a promise of a source of moisture led us to believe this was too good to be true.
We remember being approached by the maker’s and having to look them up as we had never heard of Elite Serum. Since doing so, we’ve found Skin Pro to be a reputable brand with a good BBB rating and sound customer service. They are a boutique skin care brand located in South Florida (like most other skin care brands today) that only uses high-end, laboratory quality ingredients. You won’t find any standard ingredients in their formulas, and they have been written up in journals like the Rose Sheet, Miami Living, and even been chronicled by Plastic Surgery Plastic magazine as a potential alternative product to surgical cosmetic procedures.
Elite Eye Serum glides on to the skin under and around the eyes and is said to work on contact with it’s moisturizing properties. Some of the best eye products (namely – creams) can feel heavy in contrast, and often times become an irritant when other anti aging facial creams are applied. The first product to be used each morning and night, Elite Eye Serum does neither.
If you are looking for a fast-absorbing, medicinal approach to curing the symptoms of aging – look no further. Elite Serum impressed our eye product review team so much that it’s our editors choice as best under eye serum available for eye wrinkles, moisture, bags, and it even does a little bit on dark circles.
Elite Eye Serum has become a featured anti aging eye treatment because of it’s popularity, but did you know….
Elite Eye Serum was among the first to feature Argireline in an under eye product.
These days, all you hear about is the power of Argireline, and the amazing comparisons to injections like Botox.
This daily use eye product is offered in many anti aging product combo’s on the Elite Serum Website
Our Elite Serum Review, including test subject comments and details, is below.
Made in the USA by Skin Pro, a “pioneer in skin care” according to Miami Living Magazine, this eye serum works on puffiness, eye bags, dark circles, and most importantly (and perhaps most effectively, according to our reviewers) – Eye Wrinkles!
We first heard rumblings of this product while perusing wrinkle cream reviews. Turns out, the same concept of using the latest copper peptides such as Matrixyl 3000 are used in all of the products made by this company.
The scientific advances displayed in this formula have separated this eye serum from the pack. The ultra-exclusive ingredients include haloxyl, argireline, Matrixyl 3000, and eyeliss. You can find clinical studies behind each of these ingredients, which are imported from French cosmetic company Sederma. If you read the entire Elite Serum review you will find information on advanced clinical data. Also in the eye serum’s formula is resveratrol, gaba, and even acai berry extract.
Test subjects of the eye serum reported tremendous results using the product as directed. Elite eye serum has taken the anti-aging eye cream world by storm with it’s results-oriented scientific approach to skin care.
Since we first published this eye serum review, we have noticed Elite Serum being discussed in Yoga Magazine as well as in the aforementioned Plastic Surgery Journal, where it was called “an anti aging breakthrough.” A scientific approach, antioxidant-rich ingredients, quick absorption to the skin, and SERIOUS results led to our unanimous nomination that this eye serum be named our editors choice. If you are serious about your skin care products, you should read the entire Elite Eye Serum review, where you can find our test results, information about the company behind Elite Serum, and further commentary.
Directions state to use the eye serum twice per day under each eye. After 30 days of testing, the eye serum worked great to reduce the appearance of eye wrinkles, which are common, yet hard-to treat symptom that comes with aging. Elite Eye Serum also works wonders on bags under the eyes, (that is where the powerful ingredient Eyeliss steps in) reduces the appearance of wrinkles, adds a wealth of hydration, which also eliminates the need for a moisturizer here, and works the skin in a therapeutic manner to promote cell rejuvenation.
Our test team reported that wrinkles appeared to be less visible, and the before-and-after photos in all scenarios confirmed this. they all seemed to agree that serums are a bit more advanced than eye creams as they start working instantly.

Positives about Elite Serum
1. Made in USA. Always a plus if you have concerns about irritation. I suggest you read the page: “Choosing an Eye Cream” as applying any eye product below the eye is something you want to do with caution. What this means as an eye product consumer is that the facility staff where Elite Serum is made are all trained on GMPs, SOPs and all FDA rules and regulations. USA manufacturers of cosmetics are also subject to random inspection from the United States Food and Drug Administration, the State Health Department and the Department of Agriculture. Upon looking up the informational records of this facility, we found it to be in perfect standing with all governing boards.
2. Science-Inspired Ingredients. Over the years, there have been many “gimmicks” in skin care. “Organic, herbal,” and other types of products don’t hold a candle to scientifically-advanced ingredients that go in this eye serum. The serum contains cosmeceutical ingredients such as Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 (Haloxyl®), and Sodium Hyaluronic Acid. But that’s far from the tip of the iceberg in ingredients that the Elite Serum contains.
Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), works to keep the skin to retain it’s hydration. With this, eye wrinkles appear reduced through a slight “plumping effect” that promotes younger-looking skin. So, it’s important to add hyaluronic acid to the skin. It penetrates the dermis, combines with water, and promotes micro circulation and nutrient absorption. It forms an air permeable layer, to keep the skin moist and smooth. The result is a rapid skin rejuvenation, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, crows feet and other cosmetic signs of age around the eyes caused by sun exposure, smoking, stress, and other common factors.
Out of all the ingredients in the formula, hyaluronic acid is the one that provides an instant effect.
Argireline® is the brand name for Acetyl Hexapeptide-3. It is known to be the best needle-free alternative to botox, and has been shown to reduce wrinkle depth, especially around the forehead and eyes. This was proven in a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in 2002. In this report, it was demonstrated that a cream containing 10% acetyl hexapeptide-3 used by healthy women volunteers reduced wrinkle depth up to 30 percent after 30 days of treatment.
In another study by Centerchem, an open label-trial of 5% Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 cream applied twice daily on 10 women demonstrated a 27% improvement in periorbital rhytids after 30 days as measured by silicone replica analysis. Theoretically, this peptide may mimic the effects of botulinum toxin injections.
In only 15 days, 10 healthy women subjects received a wrinkle reduction of 17% while using a Argireline® based cream.
Eyeliss®, is a valuable ingredient that is used in the serum to deflate the puffiness and bags associated with the eye area. It works in tandem with the other ingredients to make this an over the top eye serum. Eyeliss works to smooth out the skin and it’s won prestigious awards in Europe.
Haloxyl® (Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7) reduces puffiness and dark circles around the eyes and further adds to the firmness of the skin. This powerful peptide does this byencouraging proper circulation in that area. Essentially, it counteracts the fluid build-up that occurs naturally when you sleep. Eyelid swelling is a common cause of puffiness and dark circles. When you lie down,gravity causes fluid to accumulate in your lower eyelides. Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 counteracts this effect in addition to making the skin soft and smooth.
According to the Elite Serum website: Clinical Studies show 22 volunteers applied Haloxyl at 2% for 8 weeks, and received a 19% reduction in the dark circles.
Gaba, a relatively new topical skin care supplement, is called often by experts as the body’s natural tranquilizer. Gaba works fast to penetrate the sensitive skin around the eyes by relaxing the muscles. This has the effect of creating less skin tension in order to instantly reduce wrinkling. The instant anti-wrinkle effect of the GABA application makes it a very desirable addition to any eye cream.
Elite Serum also contains super antioxidants like red and green seaweed extracts.
Most quality eye cream products only offer one or two recognizable ingredients, but this eye cream is the grand daddy of eye creams as far as an all-star list of ingredients, and perhaps that’s why it worked so well on our testing team.
3. Results! Of course, just like on a supreme pizza, ingredients always sound good. But, the main thing people want to know is, do they work well together? Well, it blew the minds of our testing team, and the consumer reviews posted look like they are in agreement. This is hands down the best under eye product you can buy.
Negatives about Elite Serum
Price? Maybe $89.95 is prohibitive for some people.
Elite Eye Serum Final Analysis: A MUST HAVE if you suffer from a plethora of issues around the eyes: If you have eye wrinkles, redness, or puffiness, this is a product you can’t afford to be without. The moisture addition is also serious, and discoloration, while not the best eye serum for that, can be really reduced with Elite Eye Serum.
When prompted, the company behind Elite Eye Serum provided us with their vital information, including the following:

Impressive science-inspired formulation. It is hands down the best eye serum available. There is not a single eye serum with comparable ingredients to the eye serum produced by Elite Creams. (Yet)
