Ageless Derma – Retinol & Vitamin K Eye Cream

I have been trying out this Retinol and Vitamin K Eye Cream from Ageless Derma to see if it lives up to its claims of eradicating dark circles, soothing puffy eyes and smoothing the fine wrinkles around the delicate eye area.
Ageless Derma is a fairly new brand from the USA set up in 2006 by Dr Mostamand, founder of Focus Medical Spa in Orange County, when he realised that many skincare products don’t live up to expectations. The Ageless Derma website is very informative, explaining the function of the different ingredients that are contained in their skincare and make-up products. It also explains how dark circles are caused by damaged capillaries under the surface of the skin.
Ageless Derma packaging is black and silver, fairly classy-looking, although I do find that the Retinol and Vitamin K Eye Cream bottle attracts dust when it is left out in the bathroom! The silver lid removes to reveal a pump-action nozzle, which dispenses the eye cream (although I find that it dispenses a little more than you actually need for 2 eyes!).
Ageless Derma Retinol and Vitamin K Eye Cream is a pale yellow creamy lotion, it reminds me quite a lot of Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion. The cream should be applied gently with the ring finger, patting the product gently around the upper and lower eye area. The cream sinks in well to the skin, and I think it contains light reflecting properties too, as the skin around my eyes looks really clear and radiant as soon as it has been applied. The Eye Cream feels nice and cooling when it is applied, and contains retinol which is known for eradicating wrinkles.
Although I do like the moisturising properties of this eye cream I’m not too sure on the long term benefits yet. Ageless Derma claims that initial trials were carried out over 8 weeks, and that after the 8 weeks of use 81% of participants said that the eye cream had been effective at eradicating dark circles and puffy eyes. I’ve only been using it for 3 weeks so far and haven’t really noticed a difference, although I have to say I don’t normally have a problem with dark circles but do sometimes get puffy eyes particularly if it is hot. I have been using this eye cream on one eye only, so that I can compare the results! But I will continue to use it and to monitor any differences that I see, and if I suddenly discover that it is a miracle eye cream you will be the first to know!
UPDATE 17th September 2017 – since I wrote this post the product has dropped the ‘Vitamin K’ in it’s name, it’s now known as Retinol Eye Cream.
Retinol Eye Cream is priced at $32 for 15ml (around £39) and is available from Ageless Derma. They do ship internationally but it is quite expensive for shipping, so keep an eye out on Ebay as Ageless Derma products are sometimes available on there. Ageless Derma also do mineral make-up which I would really like to try. Has anyone else had any experience of Ageless Derma products?
