Dare to try it: IQ Derma RestoreEyes

Is a Solution for:
Dark Circles
August 26, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 7 Comments
Dark under-eye circles are only cute on pandas. The root cause (in humans) is often something called bilirubin. When the capillaries leak blood (which is normal in tiny amounts), it includes bilirubin (iron). It is the inability to break down the bilirubin that causes the circles around the eye area. One potion that addresses this directly is IQ Derma RestoreEyes Triple Zone Eye Therapy ($85 for 0.5oz) and I have one to give away to a reader who promises to write a review.

A full 41% of RestoreEyes is made up of active ingredients and, of those, four are supposedly "intelligent":

  • Dermaxyl is, in fact, palmitoyl oligopeptide. This antioxidant comes in a 2% concentration.

  • Grant-x, which used to be called Grantox, is a muscle relaxant made up of cyclopentasiloxane, water, polysilicone-11, aminobutyric acid, barium sulfate, panax
    ginseng extract, portulaca oleracea extract, centella asiatica extract. This is at the maximum dose of 35%.

  • Haloxyl is the ingredient that tackles dark circles. Chrysin stimulates the enzyme that breaks down the bilirubin and hydroxysuccininmide makes it soluble so that it can be dispersed.

  • The fourth active is actually more cosmetic. Ronasphere is spherical silica coated with titanium. Its purpose is to diffuse light and create a brighter appearance.


I am very curious to know if this intelligent combo works, so I hope that someone (honorable, who will send us a review) steps forward to take this IQ test.

    <p>I am new here but not to all the skin problems we have to deal with. Already my regiment/products have been adjusted for the better due to this blog.<br />
    Now I have a pale complection thatallow my dark circles to stand out proud. Working, cleaning, pampering and all the other stuff we do in a hectic day leaves me little chance for relaxing. All that I have evefr used on my eyes have been cucumbers and even tea bags (mother-in-law). Hey, I will try anything to cut down on the foundation route. If chosen I will be unbiased, clear, timely and not be afraid to be wordy ;-)</p>

    <p>These eyes cry every night for you . . . OH, ok, I'll ditch the song reference. But my eyes do cry out to try this product! They're up in years, but still look okay EXCEPT for dark orbital rings I'm dying to prove can be allieviated. If chosen I can promise utter diligence and a review in due course.</p>
