ALGENIST Firming & Lifting Eye Gel

Algenist Firming & Lifting Eye Gel

My Quest for an Upper Lid Gel is Over!!

I have suffered from upper eyelid puffiness for close to 10 years. There are many products on the market for under eye puffiness but not many for upper eyelid puffiness. I chronically suffer from upper lid puffiness, so I have been searching tirelessly. I sought out the advice of dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and opthomologists. They all told me that there was not much I could do. But try to address the underlying cause. The problem being that there were too many underlying causes. Chronic sinusitis, allergies, inflammation, fluid retention, poor sleep habits, etc.

I even went so far as to consider upper eyelid surgery, a few doctors said I would be a candidate for upper eyelid surgery. But I just could not justify doing the surgery yet at my young age. Putting myself at so much risk. But than the upper eyelid puffiness got worse and it started to affect my vision. My upper eyelids would droop so bad at times it would blur my vision. Luckily, as I made some lifestyle changes, my eyelids now only droop severely several times a year. It usually lasts a few days and than goes away.

I had just about given up my search for an upper eyelid cream that actually helped to depuff and tighten the skin (actually do what it claims) when I came across what I like to call a gift from above.  Algenist Firming and Lifting Eye Gel. I was drawn to this product line after receiving samples of their Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 20 and Overnight Restorative Cream. I enjoyed both of them. Look for a post about them soon. I used both for a full month.

The Algenist Firming and Lifting eye Gel worked right away and continues to work. It helps to depuff and tighten my upper lid area like no other eye cream or gel ever has. I apply it in the morning and in the evening as part of my skincare regimen. I take one pump of the gel and it is enough to use on both eyes. I pat it gently on the upper eyelid from the brow down to about the crease of the eyelid. The gel also drys fast, which is a plus.

Here's the skinny on it:

It is a lightweight refreshing gel that combines Alguronic Acid & ProPeptide to stimulate synthesis of the skin's key structural proteins, rebuilding the skin's density while firming, tightening, and lifting the delicate skin around the eyes. Eye contours are redefined revealing a recharged and youthful appearance. Alfafla seed extract, lupine protein, caffeine, and chamomile reduce puffiness and soothe skin around the eyes.

The Eye Gel Claims that within 10 days of use:

  • The eye area is lifted in 80% of subjects. 
  • Skin structure is reinforced in 83% of subjects.
The Eye Gel Claims that within 4 weeks of use:

  • Skin elasticity is increase in 90% of subjects.
  • The eye area is firmed in 90% of subjects.
These results were obtained using the product twice daily, following a self-assessment of 100 woman.

I could say a few minor things about the gel like it could be more moisturizing. But I won't! I am so thankful for this gel and for the fact that I now have something that actually works, that I would not change a thing about it. I want it for one reason and one reason only. And it works for that reason. Enough said.
