An effective new eye serum with top quality anti-aging ingredients

Pros

Tightens the skin under the eyes and lifts eyelids

Cons

None

It was not love at first sight for Prana Precious Fluids ($135), and I wasn’t eager to give up my new beaux (E'shee Clinical Esthetic Alpha and Omega Gene Therapy Eye Cream) for the duration of a month long test. In the end, Prana Precious Fluids won me over, and I am excited to introduce a new eye serum to my arsenal.

For me, Prana Precious Fluids has been most effective in keeping the skin under the eyes looking tight and the eyelids lifted. Also welcome (once I got used to it) is the consistency — a cross between a gel and an oil that had me a little perplexed initially. It should be noted that my tester came in a sample bottle with a dropper — the retail version comes with a roller applicator, for which a gel/oil makes sense. Precious Fluids is not at all greasy, but it does leave the skin feeling supple and hydrated all day.

As always with Prana, quality ingredients are thoughtfully deployed. Precious Fluids is one of a small, but growing number of products with ChroNOline. This is a peptide, caprooyl tetrapeptide-3 that does seem to help with sagging skin. Derived from a growth factor, namely TGF-ß, it stimulates production of laminin 5 (as well as collagen VII). Tetrapeptide-3 is also supposed to be pretty good at beefing up fibronectin (by 60% apparently), which in plain English means helping the things that keep our skin firm.

Another key ingredient is lipid ceramides, which act as a signaling molecule as being a structural component of the upper layer of skin. Studies have shown that topical ceramides improve skin barrier repair and increase the moisture content of the skin.

Prana loves mushrooms and they are featured in several of their best-loved products, including Prana Reishi Mushroom Shield ($42 in the shop). In Precious Fluids, there’s chaga, turkey tail and reishi, with powerful antioxidants that research has shown may "protect against aging.”

And if all this wasn’t enough, there’s haloxyl, a complex for tackling dark under eye circles, collagen boosting matrixyl 3000, apple stem cells and an expression-line inhibiting peptide. There’s even instant gratification the natural way with a skin tightening active made from oligosaccharides from chicory root.

Although I don’t really have dark circles, I can attest to the general performance of Prana’s eye serum. It tightens, smooths wrinkles and keeps eyelids and under-eye areas firm and lifted. Additional moisturizer in my case is not needed. This great formulation puts Prana Precious Fluids up there with some of our very best eye serum finds.

    Hi Dee I agree that LOL is mostly effective for puffiness. For wrinkles and crow's feet both this Prana Precious Fluids and the E'shee have been very effective for me. I'm just not sure about eye bags because I don't have too much of a problem in that department. But, I've noticed definite tightening with both products. The difference between the two (my sample of Prana has run out so I'm back on the E'shee) is that I think the E'shee is making my skin feel thicker. All of which may help with eye bags, but I can't say for sure based on me as a one-woman "use case" .

    Hi Marta, I am looking at this eye serum and the E'shee Clinical Esthetic Alpha and Omega Gene Therapy Eye Cream both featured in Four Things to Try Before Botox article. I have crows feet, eye puffiness and under eye bags. The bags are my biggest beauty problem that I would love to improved. I've been using LOL which does help a little, but I think mostly with the puffiness. Would either of these two new eye products be a better fit for me? I'm even willing to go with the $284 (Yikes) priced cream if I though it would help! Thanks for all the great information.
