Stemulation is a skincare line that claims regeneration and results. I was super excited to try the Elevate Eye Cream ($75 in the shop) because my eyes are the Achilles’ heel of my face. I struggle with fine lines, massive puffiness, and dark veins under my eyes, which contribute to my dark circles. In all fairness, I needed a miracle in a tube.

I immediately began using Elevate when it arrived and found the packaging to be slightly boring, but the product itself to have a nice glide during application. The consistency is somewhere between a gel and a light cream. There is no noticeable fragrance, which I love.

The ingredients list is impressive until you reach the last one. Elevate is preserved with quaternium-15. A quick search will inform you that this chemical kills bacteria by releasing formaldehyde and is rated a 7 out of 10 by the Environmental Working Group. While using this product, my eyes became very irritated but I stupidly ignored it because I thought it was the new concealer that I loved. Upon stopping the use of Elevate, the irritation (runny and stinging eyes) went away.

After twice-daily consistent use for two months there was no noticeable long-term difference in my fine lines, puffiness, or dark circles. There are products that I use from which I can achieve a temporary “tightening” around my eyes. With Elevate, I did not see a temporary or long-term difference.

Due to the lack of effect and irritation, I have to reject this product.
