Best of 2013: Anti-Aging Eye Cream or Serum

AQ Eye Serum

Our Rating: 0 stars

December 10, 2013 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment

Awards season is upon us at Truth In Aging, that grand time of year where we reflect on the best beautifiers of the bunch. Since the eyes have it as one of the top areas to dote upon, let's begin this ceremony with Best Anti-Aging Eye Cream or Serum, shall we? 

AQ’s Eye Serum ($99 in the shop) has, for the second year in a row, won the Truth In Aging Best of 2013 Award for Best Anti-Aging Eye Cream or Serum.  No new finds this year changed our opinion that AQ is the best eye cream or serum of the rest. It seems you all agree: AQ Eye Serum topped the Truth In Aging community wishlist a few weeks back, along with the deservedly popular Your Best Face Correct eye serum, which still very much has a place in my bathroom cabinet.

Tomorrow: Truth In Aging Best of 2013 Award for Anti-Aging Product Under $100.

But AQ Eye Serum – after several years now of on and off use – has smoothed my under eyes so well that a few years have been taken off. My lids are also firmer. And as an extra bonus, my eyelashes are longer. These effects are due to key active in AQ Eye Serum, human fibroblast conditioned media. They signal the cells to do a myriad of thing, including repair wounds, stimulate collagen and glycosaminoglycan production and inhibit matrix degradation.

These growth factors, as they are also called, are backed up by Matrixyl 3000 – peptides that encourage collagen synthesis. In addition, there are three ingredients for de-puffing the eyes and helping with under eye circles: dipeptide-2, which is supposed to improve lymphatic circulation, hesperidin methyl chalcone, which can help strengthen the capillaries, and N-hydroxysuccinimide, supposed to eliminate blood-originated pigments. The skin around the eye may also be brightened by aminoethylphosphonic acid, which may inhibit melanin (although there isn’t much research that I could find to back this up), lactic acid and grapefruit extract.

The packaging is still terrible. I know how expensive components are for beauty products so I will cut AQ some slack. But this is one of the worst I’ve come across and I wish AQ would come up with packaging that lives up to the winning anti-aging eye cream inside.

Ingredients in AQ Eye Serum: Water (Aqua), Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Glycerin, Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone, Steareth-20, Dipeptide-2, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Butylene Glycol, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Seed Extract, Polysorbate 20, Chrysin, N-Hydroxysuccinimide, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Aminoethylphosphonic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Extract, Lactic Acid, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Phenoxyethanol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol

    I agree with this 100% ! I think the AQ eye serum is the best Eye serum of all time. I have not seen anything that can compare. I got fantastic results 2 days after I start using it. Looking at the ingredients this might be the best product ever developed. Thank you truth in aging for bring this product to us and for making AQ products line available here..
    happy holidays and thank you AQ skin solutions for your great work !
