What it is: A quick-fix eye treatment that tightens the look of skin while firming and smoothing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, under-eye puffiness, and deep wrinkles.
What it is formulated to do: This powerful treatment tightens, firms, and smooths the appearance of the eye area to create younger-looking skin. It temporarily minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and under-eye puffiness.
What else you need to know: Simply apply, let dry, and pat away excess residue to erase the look of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. A little product is all that is required to get maximum results; applying too much will not increase results. A white residue may be left after product dries in three to seven minutes; this is normal. To remove the white residue, pat away excess with fingertips, a q-tip, or a damp cloth. Makeup can be applied over Instant FIRMx Eye, but results may be lessenedit is best when used alone for a quick, temporary pick me up. For optimal results, follow with any moisturizer appropriate for your skin type.
Research results: In a consumer efficacy study immediately following application on 25 women, ranging in age from 35 to 65:
- 92% agreed that their eye area appeared smoother
- 92% agreed that their under-eye puffiness appeared diminished
- 88% agreed that their eye area appeared tightened
- 84% agreed that their eye area was instantly transformed
Suggested Usage: -Start by cleansing with an oil-free cleanser. Make sure skin is completely dry. Do not use cream around the eye area.
-Shake the tube. Apply a pea-size amount on the top of the hand.
-With a clean and dry nylon makeup brush, pick up a tiny amount of the product.
-Apply and spread, in upward strokes, a thin layer of the gel underneath the eyes for puffiness, over the crow’s feet area, or on the 11 lines between the browbone (but not on the moveable eyelid).
-Let the product dry for about five minutes while remaining expressionless. Do not squint or smile.
-Most people won’t get a white residue when applying the product thinly and smoothly, especially with a makeup brush. However, if you apply too heavily and see whitening around the edges, simply moisten a cotton swab (or your fingertip) and remove excess by gently patting the edges.
-Now that the product is completely dry, you are good to go. You can also apply powder or gently pad on foundation.
