Eye Serum For Dags Under Eyes


People have all sorts of expectations for eye cream – moisturizing, de-puffing, reducing dark circles, unwrinkling, anti-aging, etc. But anyone who knows skin care products well understands how tough it is to reduce bags under eyes. Unlike temporary puffiness, fat bags under eyes usually have to go under the knife to be removed.

Since I do not want a surgery, I have been seeking for an effective topical treatment. It helps to use a caffeine serum without too much hydration. Eye cream with too much hydration cannot directly be used on bags under eyes because it makes eyes baggier. Another thing that worked for me was the Aveeno, Neutrogena, or RoC zinc-copper bi-metal treatments, which Johnson and Johnson got into market in 2010, and then stopped. If they had stayed in the market longer, and removed the heavy dimethicone, these products would have been successful. Unfortunately they removed the whole line.

Anyway, after researching and trying a lot of products, what works best to eliminate my under-eye bags is Obagi ELASIderm Eye Complete Complex Serum. It is a very simple formula with only what works for baggy eyes. It has both caffeine, and zinc-copper malonate. We already know that caffeine reduces the size and the number of fat cells. The reason why zinc-copper bi-metal complex works is that it enhances the elastin biosynthesis in the skin. This means that it improves the loose and sagging skin that is responsible for bags under eyes. After using Obagi ELASIderm Eye Complete Complex Serum for a couple of weeks, I can already have some “no bags” days, which I am quite satisfied with.

Obagi ELASIderm Eye Complete Complex Serum was developed to reduce wrinkles, and the company associated test showed that 8-week treatment twice daily resulted fewer wrinkles. But I have to say that I do not see any changes for my crow’s feet lines. So I do not think that this is the best wrinkle treatment. For products used around eyes, you have to know what you want. A product with the best hydration, moisturizing, or unwrinkling effects are definitely not good to be used on bags under eyes, for example.

There are several eye products for eye puffiness, but few products dare to claim that they can fix under-eye bags. I know that another product, Isomers R Pur for Eyes, particularly claims that it not just works for the temporary puffiness, but it helps with the chronic fat pad shift under eyes. I did give it a try. It gives an overall lift and a slight tightening effect, but for bags under eyes, it does not work as well as Obagi ELASIderm Eye Complete Complex Serum. You can use it as a lifting serum though.

Finally, please keep in mind that Obagi ELASIderm Eye Complete Complex Serum is not that moisturizing, and cannot be used on upper eye lids. It is not an all-in-one eye cream, but it is probably the best treatment for bags under eyes. And remember to follow the directions.
