Skin Nutrition Eye Reconditioning Serum- reader reviewed

In mid-November, I started using Skin Nutrition Eye Reconditioning Serum ($110). I received two tubes of .34 ounces each. Let me first explain that I am 63 but look younger, thanks to good genes. Nevertheless, I have not escaped the aging of my skin and body. Aging has revealed itself mostly in my eyes and sagging skin. I have always had somewhat dark circles under my eyes but not bad. Now, however, the circles are darker. Plus, my eyes are puffy, I am getting deep crow’s feet wrinkles, and some gross-looking goose bumps are showing up at the inner corners of my eyes. Aging, unfortunately, makes you look tired even when you are not!

So I started using the Skin Nutrition serum on just one eye and another eye product from a well-known dermatologist on the other eye. Actually, I started both at the same time. I was so surprised to see results with Skin Nutrition within five days; whereas, the other product even after six weeks did not match Skin Nutrition’s  results. The Skin Nutrition serum absorbed almost immediately and within a few minutes, I started to notice the benefits.

Skin Nutrition considerably lightened my dark circles, smoothed out the skin under the eye, improved the look of those goose bumps, and lessened the puffiness. Wow! However, in comparison to another product I tested for TIA (Juice Beauty’s Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment, $45) it did not brighten the under-eye area. Also, I recommend using a moisturizer afterward as the product is slightly drying. So after six weeks, I began using the Skin Nutrition on both eyes... and it is now early February, and I still have 1/4 of a tube left!

The bottom line… would I purchase this product? Most likely yes, especially because it was a good value for my money and it did offer some good results. I did, however, really like the brightening effect of the Juice Beauty eye treatment. So I will keep searching until I find the right eye-brightening product at a reasonable price.

    Thanks Cristina! You mention that you have eye puffiness, would that be the same as eye bags? I am only in my mid-forties and have horrible under eye bags ( no dark circles) that really age me & make me look tired. I have tried tons of products and am wondering if this one might be worth a try? Thanks for the review.
