REVIEW: Skin Doctors EyeTuck



Skin Doctors say: "Reduce under eye bags without surgery! Containing Eyeseryl, a tetra peptide, this cosmeceutical strength formula has been designed to painlessly reduce the appearance of puffy bags in just weeks. Eyetuck will give your under eyes a smooth, tighter appearance whilst also conditioning and moisturising the delicate eye area."

Ingredients
EyeTuck contains Shea Butter to moisturise, Apricot Oil to revitalise dry or ageing skin and Eyeseryl (Tetrapeptide-5) that drains and decongests water that has pooled in the under-eye region.

My Experience and Thoughts
I've been using this 'anti-bag technology' eye cream since the beginning of September, and to say I'm impressed with the results would be an understatement. I saw a dramatic improvement in the first few days of use, and my results have stayed consistent ever since. I was completely fed up with continuous puffiness and bags under my eyes, so I started looking into products that might be able to help. I hit up my local Priceline and bought a couple of SkinVitals Masks (Eye Brighten Anti-Dark Circles Brightening Invigorating Cloth Eye Treatment Mask - I also suffer from dark circles! and SkinVitals Eye Lift Anti-Puffiness Anti-Wrinkle Firming Cloth Eye Treatment Mask - I've yet to try either of these) and Skin Doctors EyeTuck, which I was quite sceptical of, but at the same time, desperate for anything to work! I had grown to despise my under-eye area, which has a few fine lines and dark shadows, both of which I can disguise with various creams and concealers, but most worryingly, ridiculous puffiness resulting in eyebags which I just couldn't reduce, no matter what I tried. This cream really seems to 'drain' the liquid, leaving my under eye area looking flatter, tighter and less puffy, which results in a younger overall appearance.

Skin Doctors EyeTuck can be worn under makeup, and really, what's the point if it can't! I want a treatment product that will reduce my bags during the day, when I'm out and about, with my makeup on. So it needs to be something that doesn't rub off as soon as I apply concealer, and thankfully this doesn't happen. I would highly recommend anyone with puffiness or eyebags giving this a go.

This lightweight, easily-absorbed cream will not reduce the appearance of fine lines or dark circles, however it does do as it claims (for me, anyway!), and that is to "reduce under eye bags without surgery". Keep in mind, though, that results may vary from person to person, so this product may not work wonders for everyone.

Positives
* impressive results, significantly decreasing my eyebags and puffiness
* can be worn under makeup
* absorbs quickly and easily
* comfortable, lightweight formula
* pump packaging means it's sanitary and hygienic


Negatives
* expensive at $49.95 RRP (although you can usually get it discounted)
* can't see when the product is low and you're about to run out
* it doesn't address other under-eye concerns, such as dark circles or fine lines




Price
$49.95 RRP (15 ml bottle) from the Skin Doctors website, however you can get it on special from Priceline and Chemist Warehouse for a lot cheaper. I paid $35 for mine from Priceline.

Stockists
Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Terry White Chemists, Chemmart and other selected chemists.

    3. Thanks for your opinion Rouls Maximus. I've never experienced any stiff or eggie looking results with Eyetuck, but know what you're referring to, as some products do tighten the under eye area and give stiff results. From the Skin Doctors range, Instant Eyelift is more likely to do this than Eyetuck, as that's more designed for an instant firming result and you do have to be careful how much you apply. However with SD Eyetuck I've never had the results you speak of, sorry if your experience differs.
