EyeTuck is a product that is designed to be used around the delicate eye area with the specific purpose of reducing under eye bags within a matter of weeks. The product is made by the Australian skin care company Skin Doctors, which offers two other eye care products in its regimen. We are somewhat disappointed to find that each eye cream performs a separate and unique function, leaving a consumer to purchase multiple products to reap the full anti-aging benefits from this line for the small, around-the-eye problem area.
EyeTuck is offered for sale through the Skin Doctors website and through a number of online retailers. It is important to note that customers in the United States cannot order through the company website and many of the online retailers are located in different countries as well. This might pose a bit of a challenge to US customers who are interested in purchasing any of the Skin Doctors line of products such as EyeTuck. We were also unable to find a money back guarantee or customer testimonials on the company website. We believe that companies that provide this information show confidence in their products and allow consumers to shop with the same confidence, so it is troubling not to see it prominently posted.
We are pleased that Skin Doctors discloses a full ingredient list for EyeTuck. That list includesL Water (Aqua), Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Isopropyl Myristate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Polysorbate 60, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Triethanolamine, Sorbitan Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Carbomer, Disodium EDTA.
Acetyl tetrapeptide-5 is a common ingredient in eye creams because it is designed to reduce puffiness around the eyes. However, there are other peptide complexes like acetyl hexapeptide-3 (argireline), which can relax facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Another good peptide complex for an anti-aging formula is palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, which is also known as matrixyl. This substance can stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, which can also lead to a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The EyeTuck formula does not contain either of these.
- The product is available to some customers on the company website and through online retailers.
- The EyeTuck formula does not contain any proven anti-aging formulas.
- We could not find customer testimonials to back the claims of the product.
- There did not appear to be a money back guarantee available on purchases.
- EyeTuck does not appear to be as readily available in the United States.
The Bottom Line
EyeTuck is a product with a very specific goal; to reduce under eye bags. While we appreciate that this is a concern for many women who are worried about the effects of aging, it is certainly not the only concern. We prefer a product with quality, proven ingredients that can address a host of aging concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. There are many good products on the market that are more versatile and more effective, although EyeTuck could be what you’re looking for if this is your only skin care concern.
