Today's DermaSilk review is on the 90 Second Eye Lift Instant Tightening Serum. This was the product that first caught my attention when I checked out DermaSilk's product page. I am always looking for a good eye cream/serum that will help depuff my undereyes, erase appearance of fine lines, and diminishes dark circles. Could this be the one?!
This eye serum claims to "significantly tighten the loose skin around the delicate eye area while reducing under eye puffiness as well as lightening dark circles."
It comes in a thin marker sized pump bottle. Compared to the other DermaSilk products, this one's pump is a little bit harder to control and have a precise amount dispensed each time, especially since you don't need too much eye serum each use. The first time I pumped, a huge glob of products came out. Despite the warning on the back of the box that says "Overapplication may result in the appearance of a white residue. If this occurs gently pat the area with a damp cloth". I didn't want it to go to waste! Turned out it was a bad mistake, the dried up excess serum fell into little eraser dust like flakes around my eyes and I looked like my my skin were shedding. I had to wash off the whole thing and reapply.
I at first wanted to use this product in the mornings, but found out it was not compatible with my eye makeup at all! It got all flaky when I put on my eye primer and then the eye shadow. So now I switched to using it every night and it has worked okay, provided that I make sure I don't over apply like the first time.
It has a clear watery consistency that is not oily at all and has no scent. Upon patting in around the eye area, it felt sticky at first, and then once completely dried, I can feel the tightening effect dramatically. My eyelid actually felt funny because it felt like it got glued and lifted.
Besides the dramatic lifting and depuffing effect, I haven't seen any improvements to my dark circles. It might have helped with the fine lines around my eyes but I also didn't see too much dramatic difference.
Even though it provided a very nice depuffing effect to my eyes, I probably would not consider repurchasing this again, due to its hassle during application. Make sure you use gentle patting motion and do not rub to prevent the product from flaking off. Also, I've noticed that it has a little bit of a burning/tingling sensation around my eye area upon application, and I didn't enjoy that experience too much. Overall a nice product but needs some improvements to make it more user friendly. I would really like to use this in the mornings especially since that is when my eyes are the puffiest, but an eye serum that I cannot apply makeup over is so inconvenient.
