Good value for good ingredients


Firms and brightens under the eyes


Not much improvement for severely hooded lids

By David

I was thrilled when given the opportunity to test MitoQ Eye Renew ($135 in the shop.) I’m a man who in a few months will be 66. My journey into skincare began in the 1970s when a friend said, “You can’t wash your face with soap.” It’s been an expensive trip ever since: everything from high-end department store brands to locally made natural skincare products and skincare sold by friends on a major television shopping network.

My skin, which growing up was oily but never acneic, has become sensitive with age (or product overuse.) There is sun damage. Precancerous spots have been removed. There are deep-etched expression lines between my brows, and I have nasolabial lines. I’ve addressed all of the problems in a variety of ways, none with great success.

My under-eye area is not a problem spot, nor do I have crow’s feet. My eyelids have gone south to the point my eye doctor suggested Medicare would likely pay for blepharoplasty (eyelid lift.) This is a procedure I do not want to undergo. I am fearful of looking too different. My lids have been hooded for a long time. My vision is not significantly impaired by it, though things are brighter when I give my lids a manual lift.

MitoQ Eye Renew had quite a challenge ahead. I tried as much as possible to follow the instructions and use the product twice a day. As a guy, that nighttime cleansing sometimes doesn’t happen. The number of missed nights was minimal.

The product is packaged in a silver tube with a pump on the end. The tip is metal and has several openings through which the product is dispensed. I used less than a pump for each eye. The instructions suggest using the applicator tip to spread the product from the inner corner of the eye to the outer eye and then massage in a circular fashion, repeating the process under the brow bone. I stopped that method after two weeks. Even distribution of the product was difficult to achieve. I changed to placing the product on my ring fingers and applying as I would any eye product. Less product was used. The metal tip is very cooling, and I enjoyed the massage, but I preferred using it after the Eye Renew was evenly distributed.

I had no sensitivity, and I’ve used other products that have resulted in eyes swollen shut. There is no fragrance. It absorbed very well. I had no adverse reactions during the 30-day test period.

What I noticed most was the tiniest of lids beginning to appear instead of a fat blob of skin covering my eyes. As the time approached for me to write this, my very first review, I was disappointed I hadn’t seen more change in my lids. What I do notice is a firmness and brightness to the skin under my eyes that I can see and feel.

MitoQ Eye Renew contains a long list of ingredients. The science behind MitoQ skincare and supplements is based on mitochondrial activity. I remember from 9th grade biology that mitochondria are the energy source for our cells, and I can’t begin to tell you, let alone understand, how this affects skincare. I’ve also used human growth factors harvested from unusual places, so I will not judge.

Of notable mention in my ingredient vocabulary are avocado oil, ascorbyl glucoside (Vitamin C,) niacinimide (often used in products for brightening,) hyaluronic acid (great for moisture.)

After a month’s use, I have more than half of the product left. MitoQ Eye Renew contains .69 ounces, a nice boost over the more typical .50-ounce eye products when taking cost into consideration.

Thank you, Marta, for giving me this opportunity. I look forward to finishing this tube of MitoQ Eye Renew to see what, if any, further improvements may be enjoyed. Truth in Aging is one-of-a-kind in bringing honest consumer reviews about products from companies that would be unheard of otherwise.

    I had the opportunity to try this product out from two sample packets and I'm so glad I did! I really liked that it soaked into my skin quickly and the best way to describe the feel of the product would be to say that it felt like a light layer of protection around my eyes. It appeared to smooth my undereye area and I am curious what results I could obtain with a full size product.
