Finding Truth in Aging was a defining moment for me. I appreciated instantly the volume and integrity of information available here; little did I know the opportunities that would also arise. For the past six weeks, I’ve been diligently using an eye cream by iQ DERMA Essentials called RestorEyes – Triple Zone Eye Therapy ($85 0.34oz). I decided on a six-week trial based on the literature contained within the box citing clinical trial results.

Foremost, let me talk about first impressions. The cream comes in a clear plastic jar with a burgundy lid and is well protected within the box. Like a small fortress. The logo is simple and sophisticated. If one wasn’t certain they’d bought the proper product, the lid reassures with "beauty with intelligence"! Ah-ha!! How exciting. Okay, not so much. The cream is very luxuriously thick, and when I saw it was 0.34 oz, I thought I was surely going to run through it quickly. The instructions tell you to use a dime-size dab morning and night (dime size!?). I’ve taken to using it only at night. As I said the consistency is thick, silky and has a pleasant, light fragrance. The instructions firmly tell you not rub it in, but simply pat the cream onto the undereye area. I do this - pat it all around under the eyes, and leave it to absorb on its own. My method wouldn’t serve for the daylight hours. My little tub within a jar is lasting nicely. I was acutely impressed.

Results? While I can’t give exact numbers like the literature does, I can say that my results compare favorably with the clinical trials which dealt with crow’s feet, lines/wrinkles and (my single greatest eye concern) dark circles. I got amazing results after the first week. Crow’s feet and lines and wrinkles have been softened by a considerable amount. It’s like they’ve been melted back into my skin. But my dark circles . . . Holy Cow.

TIA readers! Hear me! I have suffered from this malady my entire life. I’ve watched it get worse as I age, and I am now in my 50s. RestorEyes lightened my undereye area to such a remarkable degree that I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t been the one doing this trial myself. So much so, even my husband noticed! This is a guy who notices nothing. He even admitted noticing the lightening of my dark circles and admitted his amazement of how much it changed my appearance (probably not the most brilliant statement a husband can make, but hey). I can honestly say I’ve put off writing this review for a little bit because I can’t put into words how staggering a change this product has wrought to the appearance of my eyes.

iQ DERMA states the actives as: 2% Dermaxyl, 35% Grant-x, 2% Haloxyl, 2%Ronasphere LDP and says together they are its IntelliMatrix Complex. I’m a believer. RestorEyes is amazing.

    I am 58 and have worked hard to change my lifestyle (diet, exercise, etc.) and have succeeded in losing 40 lbs this year. I have plenty of cellulite to test this product on, and would be happy to provide before and after pics if given a chance to review. Thanks!

    Now I'm embarrassed. Yes, I wrote the review on iQ Derma Restoreyes. What I was trying to do yesterday was clarify that while I wrote the review on the eye creme, I didn't have any body lotion for trial, which if you read some of the comments it seems some readers seem to think I have some for testing. But sadly and shamefully I mistyped my third sentence to say I didn't write the review...

    I take full credit and blame for all reviews I've written previously for TIA. But I repeat, I am your audience and therefore do not have anything for the readers to test. Does that make sense, Master? grasshopper

    Julie, how odd. There is also a Five Best post that says you've raved about this eye cream. If you didn't write this, I wonder who did.

    Hullo my fellow readers! Funny how things get turned around... kinda. I'm only that, a faithful follower of TIA. I've never wrote the (above) review of iQ Derma Restoreyes, but have never tried their body creme. The trials and testing is up to our master, Marta. ~jk
