I dont know if anyone remembers , I posted last month on how bad my super sensitive eyes were looking, droopy ,lines etc... I have tried EVERYTHING ,,,cellcosmet , babor,yonka, okusil ,etc and about 15 different drug store brands my eyes had milia and in the corners they looked crinkly Sad so i went to whole foods and spoke to someone who told me to try the burts bees repair serum, so along with that I had ordered Phytomer Lift contour at sephora... I put the repair serum first then a dab of phytomer ... Very Happy I cant tell you how happy I am with the way my eyes are looking...the crinkly is smoothing out(sorry only way I can describe it) My eyes look bright again ... I dont now which one is doing what but Im sticking with both of them!!!!! The Phytomer is like a gel and i keep it in the fridge Im thinking that maybe creams are just too heavy for my eyes... Im very happy about both of these products Ill let you know after a couple of more weeks if Im still Loving as much!!!!!

I've heard some good things about phytomer's eye range...so much to choose from. Glad it's working for you, maybe this should be next on my list....(and its a long one.)

As soon as I read this I "ran" to my local Sephora (not really a big challenge for me, my closest one is 2 miles from my house!) and got the Phytomer!

I hope it works!!

I've tried the Phytomer Lift Contour and I didn't like it. Mind you, the reason I didn't like it is because it felt like it was tightening up my eye area (something I don't like/need). So, if you're after some lifting then, as the name of the cream suggests, it should deliver at least to some degree.

well i am now into my 3rd week of using Phytomer Lift Contour, and have definitely seen some improvement - it seems to tighten the skin around my eyes a bit, makin it look more alert (??) and less tired...but the result has been very gradua and subtle..just have to be patient with this pdt I guess...

now i am looking for something for my dark circles & underye bags. Can i actually combine 2 or more pdts at the same time for my eyes?
pls anyone can u recommend a good pdt than i can combine with Phytomer? i'm thinking of trying Alphaderma but not sure what it can address, the undereye, lifting, or dark circles? as it's quite expensive i just wanna be sure it works...
also can anyone share with me...out of the ADCE, Prep & Okusil which pdt in the JB line is most effective based on your experience of having tried all 3?

btw my skin is very oily and tend to break out if using too heavy, creamy pdt like Shiseido Benefiance.

thanks!

I would suggest Peter Thomas Roth Power K Eye Rescue for dark circles. I found it to be very effective but not moisturising enough so you'd have to use this under an eye cream. If the Phytomer is moisturising enough then this should be good underneath it.

As far as the AlphadermaCE goes, I think the ADCE and the skin prep are the two products that are most effective. My mum uses both and likes both, she could do without the Okusil because she uses the ADCE around the eye area anyway.

Sorry to confuse you Poppy with a second opinion but I find the Okusil most effective on my eyes out of the J&B trio.

I find it lifting and a bit brightening - I don't suffer from serious dark shadows so hard to be conclusive there, but they seem a bit brighter.

Thanks Mabsy and Molly...
I really hv to look at my wish list and clean up its getting too long now Very Happy

sad to say the Phytomer isnt showing any real improvement after the initial

PTR Power K sounds good to try, Mabsy can you remember the ingredients (other than Vit K) does it contain any whitening active (Hydroquinone/Kojic Acid/Arbutin) cause my colleague who's in cosmetic ingredients business advised me to avoid those...

if its not moisturising I guess hv to buy anothr pdt to combine with that..

Definitely no Hydroquinone. It does have Kojic Acid which as far as I know is a natural alternative to HQ.

Here are the ingredients:

Purified Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Cyclom4ethicone, Sodium PCA, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Kojic Acid, Gelatin & Squalane & Ubiquinone (Co-Enzyme Q-10), Extracts of (Chamomile, Green Tea, Horse Chestnut), Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Polyacrylamide & C13-14 Isoparaffin & Laureth-7, Beta-Glucan, Super Oxide Dismutase, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Phytonadione (Vitamin K1 in Liposomes [Phosphatidylcholine]), Iron Oxides.
