Fine lines, dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes plague everyone who has had a sleepless night or two. Most of us find them to be a minor annoyance, but if you’re someone who has chronic under-the-eye problems, you’re probably looking for something to help you get things under control.
That’s what ViVexin promises with ViVexin Intensive Eye Cream. According to its manufacturers, ViVexin works to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restore normal color to skin, and reduce the appearance of puffiness under the eyes.
Whether this three-in-one cream really works is something we want to find out. We’ll lay out a list of ingredients found in ViVexin, tell you what they do, and try to help you decide whether this is a product you’d be interested in purchasing.
How ViVexin Works
ViVexin works by employing three trademarked ingredients that each tackle a different under-the-eye problem.
Here’s a quick rundown of what they are and what they do.
• Haloxyl is a blend of ingredients like glycerin and palmitoyl, which was trademarked by the cosmetics company Sederma. Since it was developed, Haloxyl has been included in many high-end eye creams for its ability to strengthen weak and leaking capillaries, thus breaking down dark pigments in the skin under the eye.
• Eyeliss combines hesperidin methyl with a variety of peptides to drain fluid from the puffy bags that form on the skin.
• Matrixyl, scientifically known as Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3, is a “mini-protein” that boosts the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen. This means Matrixyl works at the DNA level to eliminate wrinkles and prevent future lines from forming.
There are a lot of things we like about ViVexin, the first and foremost of which is its inclusion of ingredients that have a long history in the cosmetics industry. Any good eye cream ought to contain peptides, and ViVexin has them in spades.
Second, we like the promises that ViVexin makes to its customers. The company offers a free trial, minus the cost of shipping, to anyone interested in trying ViVexin. And if you decide to try out the eye cream, you have the benefit of a 90-day money back guarantee, which means you can try ViVexin in a risk-free environment.
Not only does this allow customers to make an educated decision, we believe it shows a confidence in the ViVexin product that is reassuring.
By far the most disappointing thing about ViVexin is its price tag. Retailing through the manufacturer at $59.95 a bottle (which will last about one month), ViVexin is on the higher end of eye creams price-wise.
You can save some money by purchasing three-month or six month-supplies at $119.95 and $199.95 respectively, but we think that’s still a lot of cash to put out up front.
However, we also think it’s important to remember that ViVexin promises to fight all three of these common under-the-eye complaints, not just one. If you were to buy a product for wrinkles, another for dark circles, and one more for puffiness, you would end up spending quite a bit of money.
ViVexin promises all these things in one cream, for just one price.
The Bottom Line
Because of its peptide-heavy formula, we believe ViVexin is likely to be an effective product, but whether it is right for you might be a different story.
If you’re concerned about all three under-the-eye ailments—dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines and wrinkles—ViVexin is probably a good bet, especially if you take advantage of the various offers on the company’s website.
But if you’re only worried about one or two of these things, we think you ought to do some more browsing to try and find a product that answers your needs with a more moderate price tag.
