Eye Creams serve many purposes and as we have reported in the past, they come in many shapes, forms, and ingredient mixes. For the most part, people use eye creams for the following reasons:
- Reduce puffiness around the eyes
- Reduce dark circles under the eyes
- Enhance collagen production and tighten sagging skin
- Moisturize, plump, and smooth the skin around the eyes
- Reduce the appearance of eye wrinkles
If you noticed, the last entry is in red letters. This is because there is a common misconception among eye cream consumers that ALL eye creams will get rid of eye wrinkles. This is simply not true. Many eye creams are great at treating several symptoms of aging, but most eye creams will not reduce the appearance of eye wrinkles. You have to be very careful when you buy eye creams, and you must understand the claims made and gauge your results accordingly.
For example, a company that introduced a clinically-tested Dark Circle Eye Serum recently came on board our website as an advertiser. Made by Wrinkle System, the Dark Circle Eye Serum uses ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and seaweed extract in order to treat dark circles. While this is a clinically tested formula that will reduce dark circles by an astounding 35%, the company does not make any claim or reference to eye wrinkles. That is important to know, because some consumers will assume that an eye serum of such high caliber will reduce eye wrinkles, and in the case of this example, it’s simply not what the product was formulated to do.
If you are looking for an eye cream that will effectively treat eye wrinkles, or crows feet as they are often called, you must look for an eye cream that contains Argireline. (Acetyl hexapeptide-3 is the INCI name for this ingredient.) Argireline is an anti aging breakthrough that has been called a great needle free alternative to Botox. While it’s silly to compare eye creams to Botox, they do attempt to reduce eye wrinkles, so that is why some in the skin care industry make that reference.
Another EyeCream.com advertiser, EliteSkin, has a top selling eye serum called Elite Serum, which contains a high concentration of Argireline. If you are looking to treat eye wrinkles, we suggest you give them a shot. Eye cream reviews have been solid for Elite Serum, and we fully support our advertisers.
Of course, there are many other ways to treat eye wrinkles. Anti wrinkle creams are normally used around expression lines such as the forehead and on frown lines, but they can be effective in treating eye wrinkles. Before buying any product for your eye wrinkles, be sure to read plenty of consumer reviews.
