Eye Serum Information
Eye serums are sold in many shapes, colors, and forms. They come in jars, pumps, and wands. They can be purchased at your local drug stores, department stores and online and range in price from $10 up to several hundred dollars! Most skin care companies offer their own version of an eye serum. Currently, eye serums that are currently on the market make a number of claims, but in general eye serums do the following:
- Act as a compliment to an overall anti-aging skin care regimen
- Reduce under eye puffiness
- Hydrate the area under the eye
- Restore skins natural collagen
- Act to remove dark circles under the eyes
- Improve the appearance of wrinkles
- Reduce the depth of fine lines
- Leave skin feeling velvety–smooth
Most eye serums claim to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles, while also reducing dark circles under the eyes. Some eye serums also help reduce the puffiness and swelling under the eyes. Puffiness and swelling under the eyes is caused when you lie down. Gravity makes fluid accumulate in your lower eyelids. Any serum that has the necessary ingredients to treat puffiness in addition to wrinkles and dark circles sets it apart from the rest. It is an added benefit to you because the serum can be used alone, without requiring additional products to see the maximum results.
Most eye serums are filled with antioxidants and peptides and are designed to restore a more youthful contour to the area around the eyes. Serums often include ingredients such as:
- Argerline – A key anti-aging ingredient recommended by Dr. Oz
- Haloxyl – An anti-aging peptide said to reduce under eye circles and puffiness
- Moisturizers – Whether it be seaweed extract or Vitamin C
- Matrixyl3000 – Acts in synergy to repair the cutaneous damages of age by restoring skins natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
There are many organic and all natural eye serums on the market as well. Common organic ingredients include:
- Grape Seed Oil
- Vitamin E
- Natural Glycerin
Organic products are very gentle and usually work well for those with sensitive skin. However, some consumers with normal to oily skin feel that organic products can be too gentle.
These are just a fraction of the ingredients you will find in eye serums and we detail each of them throughout the site.
Serums tend to contain more of the anti-aging ingredients than creams or gels do. We highly recommend Elite Serum. Elite Serum contains all of the key ingredients listed above and was recently named eyeserum.com’s “Editor’s Choice!” and “Best Eye Cream”!
There are many other popular choices for eye serums as well, and include options such as:
- Clinique All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage
- Korres Wild Rose Face and Eye Serum
- Dr. Brandt Skincare Time Arrest eye serum
Ingredients vary in each of these products, but all of them do contain some anti-aging ingredients. You have to decide which product is best for you based on your preferences.
As you read the eye serum reviews on this website, be sure to distinguish what your exact skin situation is or what issues around your eye you are trying to better control. Eye serums can be a key component to an overall anti-aging regimen when used properly.
