iLift is a fluid or serum that claims to give the eyes a lift. iLift is manufactured by Emerge Skin Care, which markets a line of anti-aging skin care products. iLift claims to be developed by leading scientists and to have clinical studies to back up the effectiveness of the product. Unfortunately, on closer inspection, the company does not provide enough details of these studies to assess their validity or to realistically draw conclusions.
The iLift website does have a check-out function so customers can purchase the product directly. Shipping is free and the company offers a 20-day money-back guarantee, which we always like to see.
According to the company’s website, the active ingredients in iLift are: Pepha1-Tight, EyePro8X and Matrixyl 3000. The first two ingredients may be patented by the manufacturer. Pepha1-Tight provides skin tightening through algae extract pullulan. EyePro8X contains a naturally based blend of pf actives that firms and moisturizes skin and reduces puffiness around the eyes. Matrixyl 3000 is a peptide found in high-quality anti-aging formulations and it is an ingredient we look for. Matrixyl 3000 stimulates collagen production and firms sagging skin.
Unfortunately, the iLift website does not appear to offer a full list of its ingredients which can be troublesome when trying to assess the quality of the product. There are many low-quality “fillers” in cosmetic creams that are sometimes included in skin care products to keep the cost down. Not being able to examine the ingredients is also problematic for those with skin allergies and sensitivities. If you have sensitive skin, you may wish to be cautious with this product before you are able to examine a full ingredient list.

The Bottom Line
iLift is an anti-aging fluid that deserves a second look based on its active ingredient Matrixyl 3000. It may prove effective at reducing wrinkles and smoothing skin. However, not disclosing all of its ingredients concerns us. A company that fully stands behind its skin care products discloses its ingredients so that consumers can decide if the product is right for them. This does not appear to be the case with iLift. We would also like to see more details presented for the clinical studies referenced on the website. If you are seeking an anti-aging or anti-wrinkle skin care product, you may wish to look for proven ingredients like Matrixyl 3000, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Also look for products that have been thoroughly tested and proven effective so that you can invest your skin care dollars wisely.
