An organic eye serum that may not be tough enough for mature skin

Pros

Natural and organic ingredients, gentle on skin

Cons

No visible diminishing of fine lines or wrinkles

I was hoping that the I’m Fabulous Super Peptide Eye Serum ($55) would deliver what it said it would do on the website, but needless to say I was disappointed. The first thing I noticed was the packaging. It was very simple and no instructions or ingredients on the packaging. I had to go to the website to find the information. The company is dedicated to providing organic, pure vegan products. That is truly something worth trying if that is important to you.

I noticed on the list of ingredients the first ingredient was snap-8 peptide then snake peptide followed by aloe and hyaluronic acid. They seem to have great ingredients that had no nasties, but what was snap-8, and the snake venom-like peptide? The company states, “The massively talked about active ingredient Syn-ake® works like Botox, by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters which cause facial muscle tension (fine lines & wrinkles). With the muscle contraction inhibited, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. So a bit like the action of Botox — without the needles and pain. Syn-ake® is scientifically and clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth and quickly!” I was quite curious about this so I used this on my whole face for the five weeks.

First of all the jar has quite a bit of product in it and a small amount goes a long way. The directions say it can also be used as an all over face treatment, so I applied it to my whole face as well as my neck. I figured if it was like botox without the needles I would take advantage! The website made it seem like you would feel something happening after you apply and it would be like magic as far as softening. Well after 5 or 10 minutes I felt nothing, but it felt clean and no oily residue. After a bit my face felt soft but dry so I needed to use a moisturizer. 

So to be fair to I’m Fabulous, their products may be truly organic and pure and that is wonderful. The product just did not work for my 50-something-year-old skin. Perhaps it would be great for someone in their 30s, 40s or someone with skin that is not as dry as mine. I did not have any breakouts and there is no scent to speak of. It would be great for sensitive skin. 

I just can’t give this product a thumbs up. For me as far as seeing any major or even slight difference in the appearance of wrinkles there wasn’t any. I could not wait to get back to my regular regimen. I am always happy to give something new a try, especially when the products are organic and good for your skin. This time it just didn’t work for me. I am used to Medik8 Firewall and MitoQ and there was no comparison as to what they do for my skin.

    I'm curious, do you make your decisions about a product based on just one user's experience? If so, there are so many variables it is hardly a fair statistical analysis. You would need a number of different people with different ages and skin types to report before making a decision to keep and sell a product or not. Basing it on one or even 2 people seems incredibly unscientific.... I love TIA. Even though Marta is just one person I valued her insights more as she is experienced but there would still need more than just her and one other person and now I'm noticing that this year Marta seems to be not writing a review but just commenting on reviews by others. I couldn't be more disappointed! Her review counted for at least a few people (still not very scientific but I wouldn't buy something here if Marta didn't like it and now we will never know. This is a perfect example as "all those amino acids" might work great on her skin or mine or someone else's but just not on the person who reviewed it for any of a number of reasons which is why scientific tests are controlled. I can understand Marta, that you only have one face, but for these reviews to be valid I think you need to test the product at least on some part of your face as well as have a group of women of various age groups and kinds of skin to review the products and then report back as a whole - your classic (and very much missed) reviews as well as the group's review from the different kinds of skin and age groups. Someone may not like a product because they have a certain type of skin but it may be the perfect product for someone with a different type of skin. I want TIA to succeed and if Marta isn't going to write reviews on products but just articles and only some random person of any age with any type of skin is going to review the products and the decision to put it in the shop or not is based on that then I don't see how TIA can grow. You need a lot of people to test these products and write back and they should have their basic info included like age, other products used, skin type, any unusual stress in life at the time, etc. So many factors go into it and to just cut it off at 30 days when over and over we read how none of us are using the products long enough to tell if they work or not, seems like a stretch. I hope at the very least Marta goes back to reviewing as even though I know she is also selling, I believe her reviews are honest and knowledgeable and based on the scientific model. Thanks for reading. I hope Marta goes back to reviewing and collects others to do so as well. I appreciate all of the knowledge accumulated here and please Marta, don't stop reviewing! I mean, all those amino acids *did* look promising. Just because they didn't work for the reviewer, doesn't mean it's not a gem of a product and would work like magic on another person's skin. I was looking everywhere for the top half of the Skin2Skin product (for forehead and crows feet) to go with the bottom half. Ironically you sell the bottom but not the top because of one bad review - and not even a bad one - just the reviewer didn't use the product long enough to come to *any* conclusions. Are we now tossing out products that don't work in a couple weeks? I actually had to buy the Skin2Skin forehead and crows feet product somewhere else since you only carry the bottom half. It doesn't make sense that the product for the bottom part of the face and the over-all product 24/7 would be so great and the other one not at all based on one person's short experience with it? Thanks for reading.

    Thank you for your honest review Gloria. I'm disappointed though as all those amino acids seemed promising.
