When it comes to anti-aging skincare, patience is key. Many of the most effective active ingredients like retinoids, vitamin C, alpha and beta hydroxy acids typically fight the visible signs of aging over an extended period of time. If you want to look younger faster, we have the product for you. Peter Thomas Roth's Instant Firmx Eye Tightener was formulated to banish the appearance of wrinkles and under eye bags right away while also working to improve the skin over time. It's $38 at most retailers and on sale for $34 at Walmart right now.
This multitasking wonder cream contains an exclusive blend of skin-tightening silicates, seaweed extract, a powerful peptide complex and other anti-aging ingredients. The brand claims it'll instantly help firm up the delicate eye area, minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet, lines, wrinkles and puffiness.
There has to be a catch for a "magic" product like this, right? Nope. No catch here, but there is one important thing you should know: Precise application is key when it comes to this "miracle" eye cream. "It ACTUALLY WORKS, but you MUST not get a drop of moisture on the applied area because the magical barrier (that smooths out the bags and puffiness) literally breaks down immediately and the effect is gone," an Amazon reviewer said. "Use a pea size amount on each eye and use your finger to LIGHTLY DAB an extremely thin coating — go across the entire width of your under eye area and get as close to tour bottom eyelashes as you can."
When the directions are followed properly, the results speak for themselves. "Could not believe it actually worked! I have deep wrinkles, not fine lines," a Walmart reviewer confessed. "They were minimized and the puffiness that are the BAGS under my eyes disappeared."
Another shopper said it's even "better than Plexaderm." "I don't use moisturizer, apply Lancome under eye concealer, then dab a tiny amount over and my bags are gone until I wash my face," they shared. "This is life changing. I have tried three other brands and this one is the best."
Ok, we get it. It works. But does it really work instantly? Numerous five-star reviewers at multiple retailers confirmed it does. "This product REALLY REALLY worked. I applied under one eye and saw the difference in minutes," one shared in their Walmart review.
It's safe to say we're sold on this one. Treat yourself, share the secret with your friends, or tuck one in a stocking. "The hype is very real. This is an amazing product, does precisely what it promises," a Walmart shopper said. "Sits nicely under makeup and it didn't move all day. My husband was so impressed he even let me try it on him."
