Is a Solution for:
Dark Circles, Sagging Skin
February 5, 2010 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment
MD Skincare’s Lift & Lighten Eye Cream ($47) was reviewed and recommended by Claire.

The peptide complex found within this formula includes: Palmitoyl oligopeptide, Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3, dipeptide-2, hydrolized soy protein, and hydrolized rice bran protein. And guess what?  When you put  palmitoyl-tripeptide and palmitoyl-oligopeptide together you get Matrixyl 3000, which is a powerful anti-aging ingredient. Also important is dipeptide-2, which helps to improve lymphatic circulation and is especially effective for under-eye bag drainage.

There is also quercetin (What is it: Resveratol could be outperformed by quercetin) and chrysin (What is it: Dark circles under the eyes and the most effective ingredients) and oxido reductases, an enzyme that has been showing up in various high-end formulas (although we have yet to see any specific clinical studies.)

What you said:

Brendamw: I love this eye cream. I haven’t used it very long, and already seeing results

Asya said: I’ve tried recommended by TIA worked great but there was one that didn’t work at all (in my case – MD Skincare Lift & Enlighten eye cream).

    I love this stuff. I'm 23 and using this as a preventative product and I definitely see improvement in my eye brightness and tightness. I only use it at night, I find it's too greasy and messes with my eye makeup in strange ways if I wear it during the day.
