Questions & Answers for Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum

Question
differences between this product and Perricone MD Advanced Eyen Area Therapy
I have previously used Perricone MD Advanced Eye Area Therapy that was advised to me, I am 24 and have healthy skin but want to start using an eye cream to brighten the underneath eye area and reduce the small wrinkles that are now forming. However I found I did not experience and results from this product and it would cause quite a strong stinging sensation on my skin.
I have not used an under eye cream since but would like to find one that will suit my skin and give me results that I desire. Would you suggest I go for the Vitamin C serum? All the reviews look good and positive...

thanks for reading :)

Most definitely use the Vitamin C Ester Eye! Your at the perfect age to start using it now! As with any product, you need to use it every day, and not just for a month. Stick with it and use it indefinitely! I promise you will see the benefits with time! To get maximum results use an eye cream on top of it!

Last year, for the first time in my adult life I started having reactions to skin care products. I had a problem with the skin on and around my eye area it flaked and looked horrible. Any eye cream that I tried would burn and make it worse. I had no time to go to a dermatologist,, so I wnted something to get me thru until. I chose this product because I thought I could return it if it didnt work. But, it has been a life saver, the results were imediate. My skin absobed it quickly,it is not greasy. After only 2 weeks, it has healed the skin around my eyes. no redness, no flaking. The skin around my eye areas looks firmer and feels much more supple.

My last eye cream was the Querticin & Oak from Korres & I was really surprised but it made my eyes tear up & seemed to irritate me every time I used it. This serum, however, is GREAT. No problems, & even wrinkle improvement! I'm 35 so I also use a cream over this (I"m loving American Beauty from Kohls, $25), but you being younger would prob be good with just this. I would suggest at least cream for pm, cause those wrinkles just appear overnight! But this is helping.

Try a sample first and if it stings, don't buy it. Otherwise, buy it, you won't regret it.

The Vitamin C serum is very soothing. Topical Vitamin C products came out many years ago (in the 80's?) and have been proved beneficial. I used to mix the C with the other Perricone eye lifting formulas (do it in your hand) and had great results. I began this when the products first came out many years ago. I will soon be 60 but my eyes are still 40. You can't start too soon.

Question
Can you use this alone?
I am 20 but work full time and go to school full time... because of this I have developed a few fine lines (I'm thinking it's due to the extreme dark purple circles and puffiness under my eyes)... anyways back to my point; would this be hydrating enough alone? I know that it is good for dark circles and puffiness but I do have moderately dry skin around my eye area.

It's supposed to be used under a moisturizer or in sync with the high potency eye complex but I find it to be good on it's own, especially in the daytime under makeup. It makes my under eye area extremely smooth and lessens dark circles.

It would be weird to use alone and when I tried it in store alone, it didn't seem to do much. It's an extra step, but I think it's worth it. (Yes, I hear you about the busy part.)

No, I would use this product under your eye cream. It's very light, absorbs quickly and gives your eye cream a boost.

Why not! That area of our skin is sensitive and little fine lines show up there as well! A little bit of this serum goes a long way! It's light like water! Pat a little bit on the area that your concerned about before you use your body moisturizer. I use this product between my brows and even on my laugh lines.

I would advise seeing a dermatologist for little bumps under your eyes. I was told by my dermatologist that it was caused by my eye cream being too rich. Once I changed my eye cream they went away.

I would say yes, I've only had this product for a couple weeks, & the 2 white bumps I had are both gone. I still use a thicker cream over this, especially pm, but I love this serum. I'm 35 & my laugh lines aren't too huge, but I've definetly seen an improvement.

Question
For which age category is this product made for?
I see that mainly people who review this serum are over 30's , if i just want to moisturize my eye area and prevent wrinkles should i use this ? I am under 25, will this serum not damage my skin under eyes, because i heard that starting to use anti aging product too early is bad for young skin.

Personally, I don't think skincare has an age limit. That's what my dermatologist says anyway. He also says skincare is made to suit skin types and specific issues, not age. Also, you're never too young for prevention. For example, my mother is 57 and still uses anti-acne products since her skin is very oily. I am 34 with combination skin so I have totally different skincare needs and need different products and ingredients than her. That being said, I'm glad I did start taking preventative measures in my 20's - I started using vitamin C, retinol, and products containing glycolic acid. They were just a little less potent than the ones I use now and I've added peptides and antioxidants to my routine. Some of my friends of the same age are already getting Botox and fillers and I think, thanks to my early preventative measures, for which many people called me crazy and neurotic, I don't need fillers or Botox yet. Not that anyone "needs" it but you know what I mean. Plus, this works great on puffiness and dark circles which I've had since my teens and they've had nothing to do with aging - just bad allergies and genetics!

Hi, when I was your age, I started using serums, since are more light and gently than a cream. Then, after turning 30, I started applying also a cream, but not a heavy one. You can find a large range of serums in the market. Always try to buy a good quality product, we have only one face!

not intended for young eyes that have no wrinkles. It's a treatment to be put on first, then layer a cream on for moisture. This is definitely an anti-aging product. look at other creams from Perricone that suit your needs.

Yes you can use this on the lid but it is mostly aimed for under the eyes. You may want to try the Acyl Glutathione for crepiness on the lids.

I have never seen the concentration of vitamin c in this written anywhere, but on the ingredient list it has the stabilized forms of vitamin c as the top ingredients on a list that isn't very long for a beauty product. I'd imagine this is quite high. Also further down on the list of ingredients you can see tocopherol which is the scientific name for vitamin e so there is many antioxidants in this serum. Unfortunately in my experience the dropper for me stopped working in a week so this expensive product was hard to use and I ended up using way too much each time. I should have brought it back for a refund but I was too lazy.
