Arcona Peptide Eye Serum 0.3 oz

Our Rating: 0 stars

I have tried so many products that claim to help with under-eye puffiness (which I have), but none seem to deliver. When I was offered the opportunity to try Arcona Peptide Eye Serum ($52), I saw some hope, and the list of ingredients looked promising.

With key ingredients like Acetyl Tetrapeptide to reduce puffiness around the eyes, Matrixyl 3000 to help build collagen and allantoin to naturally condition the skin, I was ready to attack my under-eye bags.

Like all products in Arconas skin therapy regimen, Peptide Eye Serum is cosmeceutically formulated with pure, natural ingredients that are cold-processed in small batches to keep them fresh, active and super effective. For optimal results, Arcona recommends using this product within six months of opening it.

When I received it, I was excited to start using it immediately. First thing that I noticed was the size of the product, 0.3 oz  not even half an ounce. I couldn’t help but wonder whether or not it would last me the entire month. Surprisingly, it did! One single pump was enough to spread around each eye, top and bottom. The serum seemed to melt upon application and was amazingly spreadable. I felt an immediate tightness of the skin and afterward my under-eye bags did seem less noticeable.

I was well into my third week and really liking the results when I caught a bad case of conjunctivitis (unrelated to the product). Both of my eyes had become badly infected, and I was unable to use the eye serum for almost a week. Though the infection cleared up quickly (thanks to antibiotics!), it somehow made my under-eye bags worse. Hopefully, with continued use of the Peptide Eye Serum I’ll get rid of some puffiness. The skin around and under my eyes already look refreshed and hydrated again. All in all, I think this product is worth giving a try.
