Key Sciences

DMAE: Instant Firming

Naturally produced by the human brain, DMAE helps visibly lift sagging skin over time. Easily and quickly absorbed, it visibly plumps skin to help support skin's surface and protect against drying environmental aggressors.

Vitamin C Ester: Supercharged Brightening & Smoothing

A more potent, highly stable and less irritating form of antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, Vitamin C Ester gives the appearance of collagen-rich skin by visibly smoothing, brightening and minimizing discoloration over time. Unlike traditional Vitamin C, Vitamin C Ester is fat-soluble and easily absorbable for maximum antioxidant benefits.

      Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

      It is a long-standing company policy that we cannot disclose the percentage of product ingredients, as this is proprietary information. Research has shown that it is not the concentration , but rather the combination of ingredients that determines a product's effectiveness. We do list all ingredients on our website: www.perriconemd.com

      The Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum should be applied first, then follow with the Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum and a moisturizer always follows last.

  • Q:

    Is it possible this may increase fine lines under the eyes? I had used this for 9 months with good result. After that amount of time it seemed drying/made the lines look more pronounced. I stopped it and , cautiously, have started it again tonight. Which ingredients could, perhaps, cause dryness?
    Asked on 3/17/2014 by grace

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      It would be hard to say what ingredient or combination of ingredients that could be contributing to the dryness. I would recommend using the Hypoallergenic Firming Eye Cream on top of the eye serum for additional hydration and anti-aging benefits.

      The Vitamin C Ester Serum would be used under your moisturizer in the AM. The Vitamin C Ester 15 would be used under your moisturizer in the PM and the Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum is used both AM and PM around the Eye area.

      The Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum would not be used on the eyelids. It is recommended for the eye contour twice per day. If you are looking for an eyelid treatment I would recommend the Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum.

I received this product as part of a set--even though I'm in my 50s, I have almost no issues around my eyes--I'm very lucky! I've been a Perricone user for many years, but never really have used an 'eye cream'...I just haven't needed one!

Having said that, I DID experience some hormonal breakouts last week. I grabbed this serum and rubbed it over my entire face and within 2 days the breakouts had healed and the spots lightened.

I've been using it on my entire face, neck and chest for more than a week now, before I apply my Acyl Glutathione. The results have been tremendous.

Okay, so maybe this was developed for eyes, but Vitamin C helps everywhere--the sun damage I have on my cheekbones is fading and if it stimulates collagen growth, so much the better!

I think the easiest way to apply the serum is to hold the dropper to your face and give a tiny squeeze. Not in your eye, of course! What's most amazing is that the serum seems to go on a little greasy, and immediately evaporates. Despite being in my 50s, my skin is somewhat oily, so I hate anything heavy or greasy, but this is fabulous. My mild Rosacea loves this, and I think it calms and soothes my skin. Eye creams are supposed to be smaller molecules for easier penetration--at last that's what I was told...I think using the serum all over my face is giving me a boost.

Of course, I'm using it around my eyes now, too!

While it is lightweight and easily absorbed and smells very nice, it is not as effective as the reviews claim it to be. I'm in my 30s, with dark circles and slight puffiness around the eye bags. After I finished the whole bottle, there was no change or improvement. Maybe it helps to maintain status quo but it certainly doesn't help to improve. Recently I used a daily mask treatment with vitamin C that was store-bought. Not particularly "skin expert" brand and I see actual improvements with lightening around the eyes. The HUGE price difference between these two products made me extremely disappointed with the Perricone eye serum. It seems like the high price is meant to reflect the "brand status" and not the quality of the product.
