I have been trying the Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum for the last six or seven weeks, and so today I want to share my thoughts with you. If you have been following along for the last few months, you should be familiar with Derma MD by now. If you are new, however, check out this review of my skincare regimen to see what other products Derma MD has to offer and what I thought of them. My awesome contact at Derma MD, Mindy, sent me this nifty little roller ball for review. The Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum is new to the Derma MD lineup, and I was all too happy to give it a try.
Here is what Derma MD has to say about the product: “Lightweight gel base formulated to lift-tighten-revitalize the appearance of the eye area. Formulated with 10% Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, a non-toxic ingredient that is claimed to reduce lines by approximately 30% when used daily. This exceptional proprietary formulation combines the properties of toning and lessens contractions of facial movement, thus works to lessen appearance of fine lines, wrinkles & deep furrows found around eye area and between eyebrows. This unique peptide, combined with peptide Matrixyl 3000, will achieve long-term structuring of collagen to give eye area a more rejuvenated and younger looking appearance.”
So, first off, I was intrigued by and admittedly a little dubious of the roller ball applicator. All of the eye serums that I have used on the past have been in a pump, and I wasn’t sure how well the little roller ball would work. It was a needless worry, though, because the roller ball works just fine for me. As long as I take my time, I get a solid, even application of the product. It’s only when I try to slap it on super quickly that the ball can skip a tiny bit, but if I go for a deliberate application, I have no issues. This is an 8ml roller ball, and it will last you a good long while. I thought that I might go through it quickly, but I have been using my serum for almost two months and I still have a good amount left. I won’t need another one for some time.
As far as the serum itself, I think it works really well. I apply it around my eyes after cleansing and let it dry while I apply the rest of my skincare routine. My last step is to top the serum off with my Derma MD Peptide Eye Creme. I have noticed a definite improvement in the fine lines around my eyes. The skin looks a little tighter as well. I am not saying that the Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum replaces injections and fillers or anything- no skincare product can- but there has been definite visible improvement. The true test came when I asked my husband and sister if they noticed any difference and both of them said that I did look like I have less lines than I used to. I really think that the Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum Roller Ball works as promised. You can also apply the serum elsewhere on your face to help with frown lines or any other wrinkles that you may be concerned with.
This is the original, first run, roller ball. Mindy mentioned that they are doing a slight re-design to make the roller balls even better. The Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum Roller Ball retails for $64.95 at dermamdskincare.com. I know that is a bit steep for a budget beauty blog, but considering how long the roller ball lasts, it’s not as bad as it may originally seem. Derma MD has offered a 50% off promo code for my readers, bringing the price down to a much more manageable $32.50. Enter code beautybudget at check out to receive the discount. I absolutely think the Derma MD Lifting & Tightening Eye Serum is worth a try. It has been a great addition to my skincare regimen, and I plan to keep using it.
