100% Pure Cosmetics - Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream

Target Area(s): Dark circles, puffiness and baggy eyes – used as a day and night cream

Coffee not only tastes good, it gives you that caffeine kick to jump start your morning. But does it really work as an effective ingredient in an eye cream? Lets check out my latest find, the 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream and see if it lives up to the expectations.

Most Effective For:

  • Use as a day and night eye cream
  • Moisturizing, removing puffiness and swelling around the eyes

Other Factors to Consider:

  • No FDA approval
  • Only removes the dark circles and nothing more
  • No guarantees
  • Takes time to show results
  • Product content is not enough to achieve fast results

Description: The product 100% Pure Caffeine Eye Cream claims that it is effective in reducing puffiness and swelling around the eyes while enhancing blood circulation that will relieve and diminish dark circles. It is highly concentrated cocktail of powerful anti-aging vitamins, black currant oil and anti-oxidants. It also claims to be made using a hundred percent purely organic ingredients eliminating the use of chemicals, parabens, artificial fragrances, toxins and chemical preservatives.

Although caffeine is a common ingredient used in most eye creams and is popular for its anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties, being an all natural and organic product, it does take time to deliver definite results. Coffeeholics will definitely love this product because the scent of the coffee beans are quite overwhelming. Some consumers attest that it is effective in reducing dark circles and baggy eyes. Women even use this as an alternative to their day and night eye cream.

This product however, won't work well for people who have allergies to coffee and with its other ingredients. The cream has a heavy consistency that comes out like a thin string from its dispenser, so you have to use your fingers to apply it well and deep into the sides of your eyes. For you to fully experience any change in your eyes, you have to use it for at least a month.

Direction for Use: Apply generous layer in orbital eye area. Can be used as a morning or night eye cream.

Ingredients: As indicated in the website, the product contains the following ingredients:White and Green Tea (Organic), Green Coffee (Organic), Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate), Ribes Nigrum or Black Currant Fruit Oil, Chamomilla and Lavender Wax, Vitamin E (A Tocopherol),Pure Vanilla Absolute, and the following organic extracts of:, Rosmarinus Officinalis or Rosemary, Oregano, Thymus Vulgaris or Thyme, Grapefruit Seed, & Goldenseal (Organic).

Legal Disclaimer: The products and the claims made about specific products on or through this site have not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration and are not approved to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.

JEN says: If your problem is dark circles and puffiness then I would definitely recommend this cream for you. It can reduce puffy eyes and swelling. Although the product takes time to show results, it is effective in the long run which makes the wait worth it. This will definitely make you look less tired but not less older. You can opt for Jason Naturals Vitamin K Crème Plus or check our other eye cream reviews. Although caffeine works best when ingested than applied, there's no harm in combining the best of both worlds.

L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Regenerating Skincare Serum

Target Area(s):Puffiness and moisturizes – Use as a day and night cream

A practical consumer will use their common sense and cents in buying a product that is truly worth their every penny. Unfortunately, this product does not fit the bill for the perfect buy.

The producers L'Oreal Youth Code Daily Treatment Eye Cream claims that they have invested over 10 years of extensive research to come up with a product that effectively rejuvenates the skin around the eyes to help you restore your youthful looks. The product comes with a unique metal applicator which dispenses the cream and helps in faster absorption by gently massaging the skin around the eyes. It is supposed to reduce stress signs, wrinkles, eye bags, and aging skin around your orbs. It works as a powerful moisturizer that encourages your skin's natural regenerating powers resulting to younger looking skin around the eyes.

Here's what it has going for it:

  • Fragrance free
  • Non-greasy
  • Dermatologically tested for mildness
  • Tested by Ophthalmologists
  • The ingredients are known to boost collagen
  • Regenerates skin around eyes for youthful look

Other Factors to Consider:

  • only 0.5 fl oz – not enough product content
  • can cause eye irritation
  • does not work for everyone and for all skin types
  • the smell is not pleasant for everyone
  • takes time to show results

How It Works: Although in some websites, this product is sold for less than the $24.99 retail price, the tube and its contents are not enough to satisfy the customer. There are no money back guarantees and it does not indicate that it has FDA approval. Some people attest that it works but what is significant about it is that it took several weeks and even months to show dramatic results. Other users swear that it did not do anything for them and even caused rashes, irritation and skin bumps.

Direction For Use: Apply one to three drops over your face and neck, smoothing gently until thoroughly absorbed. For best results, use in the morning and evening in conjunction with other Youth Code products.

Ingredients: According to the site, the product's contents are:Water, Glycerin, Squalling, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Palmitic Acid, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Glyceryl Stearate, Propylene Glycol, Honey, Algae (Seaweed) Extract, Glycine Soya Protein (Soybean Protein), Isohexadecane, Sodium Hydroxide, Silica, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein, Panthenol, Polysilicone 8, Acrylamide (Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Phenoxylethanol, Digluconate, Ethylparaben, CI 77491, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Cyclohexasiloxane, Sodium Benzoate,Stearyl Alcohol,PEG 100 Stearate,Nylon 66,PEG 20 Stearate,Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract/Ruscus Aculeatus (Butcher's Broom) Extract ,Caffeine, Bifida Ferment Lysate,Cholesterol, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Adenosine,Hydroxypalmitoyl Sphinganine,Fagus Sylvatica Extract, Polysorbate 80,Acrylates Crosspolymer,Methylparaben,CI 77499,CI 77492 (Iron Oxides)

JEN says: I would not recommend this and these are my reasons why.

The producers of this eye cream claim that it was subjected to dermatological and ophthalmologist testing but the true gauge that it is really safe is for it to have FDA approval.

Even with daily use of the product, it will take more than a month for you to see any significant results and you will end up having to buy another tube just to see if it really works. Through its customer's testimonials, it is proven that it doesn't work for everybody and it has some side effects.Check out my review on 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream, this can be the cream for you. As for the L'Oreal Youth Code Daily Treatment Eye Cream, use your common sense and keep your cents – Do Not Buy!

Rating: 90/100

Price: $89.95

Elite Serum

Target Area(s): Crows feet, dark circles, fine lines, puffiness and wrinkles – Use as a night cream

Elite Serum is a recently launched product with “Defend. Protect. Rejuvenate” as the tag line. It looks like a botox injection when you first see it but it's not. It's a pretty darn good product from a company with a good history of making products that work. Here's what they claim it can do:

  • Lift and Firm Skin
  • Diminish Crows Feet
  • Smooth Fine Lines
  • Eliminate Puffiness
  • Reduce Dark Circles

Besides the companies marketing, here's what it has going for it:

  • Many satisfied customer testimonials.
  • Has real before and after pictures that proves it works
  • They're using Argireline. We know this works to relax wrinkles.
  • A previous product in their skin care line was featured in many industry publications as well as print media like Yoga Magazine, where it was named “Editors Choice of 2009.”
  • The ingredients are known to boost collagen
  • Competitive Price

Other Factors to Consider:

  • Some might find it difficult to dispense

Description: How does Elite Serum work?

It has some of the most effective anti-wrinkle, anti-aging ingredients in it. Scientifically, these have been proven to work. Here are the ingredients you care about: Argireline, Snap-8, Haloxyl, Eyeliss, Matrixyl 3000, and Syn-coll.

Instead of the normal fillers and binders which some products have to try and make the product last longer, Elite Serum contains antioxidants like red and green seaweed extract, which are well known to preserve the skin’s natural collagen.

Direction for Use: Squeeze it directly onto areas around your eyes. For more intense treatment, apply a thick layer around and under your eyes in the evening and leave on overnight. Don't put it on your finger first. Put it directly onto your skin and massage it in.

Ingredients: Contains a high concentration of pharmaceutical-grade peptides – Argireline, SNAP-8, Haloxyl, Eyeliss, Matrixyl-3000, Syn-Coll, Green Seaweed Extract and Pure Hyaluronic Acid

Guarantee: "Lab-tested with only the highest quality ingredients." — not a very good guarantee.

JEN says: The company has had great products in the past, so I trust them, but this product has yet to be proven. I would use it only if Lifecell Eye Cream didn't work for you. If you have used Elite Serum I urge you to leave an Elite Serum review in the comment section below.


Hylexin Eye Cream Review

Rating: 86/100

Price: $49.77

Hylexin Serious Dark Circles

Target Area(s): Dark circles – Use as a day and night cream

A product that greatly reduces dark circle – Hylexin Eye Cream. It definitely lives up to its name. Dark circles no more as you continue to use this product.

Most Effective For:

  • Removing dark circles under the eyes

Other Factors to Consider:

  • Expensive at $49.77
  • Only removes the dark circles and nothing more
  • Available only online
  • Does not have consistent results as proven by clinical testing
  • May or may not work for you

Description: Made by Bremen Research Labs with lot of before and after pictures plus consumer testimonials to prove that it actually works is a great find. With its vital ingredients that effectively relaxes the muscles around the eyes making blood vessels less constricted, therefore reduces the appearance of dark circles. With lesser dark circles, or the absence of it, your eyes look rejuvenated and gives you the overall youthful appearance. Scientific testing however contradicts these results. Because muscle relaxants does just that, relaxes muscles, it contributes to skin sagging, which by the way is another indicator of aging. The results of some tests shows that there is a great reduction in the appearance of dark circles but it does not do anything else but just that. The eyes of some test subjects still have that baggy appearance. So instead of looking 10 years younger, you end up looking only a couple of years younger. The good news is that there are no reports of any side effects with this product.

Direction For Use: Gently apply Hylexin concentrate twice daily to clean, dry skin, using a light, circular motion, until completely absorbed into the orbital eye area. Use sparingly. Hylexin is a concentrated formula.

Ingredients: The product contains water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin and Silica which are also found in less expensive eye creams in similar concentrations. These ingredients are effective in relaxing the eye muscles which results to the reduction of dark circles around the eyes.

Guarantee: None

JEN says: With the result that it gives in reducing your dark circles I would definitely recommend this. Though, if your problem doesn't just end in dark circles then some product options maybe open for you like BASQNYC Cucumber Tea Eye Gel Review which is a good option for you.


Eyepothesis 20Minutes Eye Lift Review- New

I wouldn't want to recommend anything in this site if it's dangerous, it doesn't work, or if it's a scam. This is why I decided to make an effort and feature the Eyepothesis 20Minutes Eye Lift Review once again. When I first reviewed it back in August, I already saw some complaints about their bad customer support and unfair charges. However, there has been an overwhelming increase in those complaints.

You can find the previous Eyepothesis 20Minutes Eye Lift Review here.

Because of all the negative reviews out there, I would have to change my previous review and give it zero stars. You can find the complaints of many buyers here:

We just have to be more careful and search for more information on the eye creams that we use. I will look into it more to see if there has been some mistake, but in the mean time, this is the change I wanted to share.

If you have any experiences with Eyepothesis you'd like to share, whether it agrees or disagrees with this post, go ahead and share it with us. It will definitely help many out there who wish to be informed.
