Many eye cream formulas on the market do not work because they lack the necessary ingredients. In order to actually reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, peptides must be present. Only some cosmetic manufacturers got the message and the makers of Revitalume were one of them.
Revitalume is an eye cream product designed to soothe eye puffiness and tiredness, fade the discoloration of under eye circles, improve the overall quality and texture of under eye skin, and reinforce capillary walls to prevent future discoloration. Revitalume does in fact contain the require ingredients to minimize the visibility of wrinkles as well as components to moisture. How effect Revitalume is, is still debatable as the product was only released in late 2008.
Revitalume contains different ingredients with different specific purposes. Hesperidin methyl chalcone is designed to diminish the visible leaking of broken capillaries. Studies show that other agents are more effective for treatment than Hesperidin methyl chalcone. Chrysin works as an anti-inflammatory to decrease visibility through dilation. Revitalume contains peptides that increase collagen to reduce the severity of wrinkles and fine lines. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3 and palmitoyl oligopeptide are the two chosen agents for Revitalume. These agents, however, are not as potent as other peptide agents.
Revitalume also contains other various ingredients—both active and natural. Some include cucumber extract, green tea extract, shea butter, retinyl palmitate, vitamin E, vitamin C, water, cocoa butter, coconut oil, mango butter, bearberry leaf extract, licorice root extract, sweet almond oil, grapefruit seed extract, sesame seed oil, vitamin A, glycerin, algae extract, stearic acid, magnesium aluminum silicate, and yeast extract.
Overall Impression of Revitalume
Despite having great potential for results by containing needed peptides, Revitalume does no advertise any form of clinical trial. Most purchases and valid results are based on clinical and scientific evidence, both of which Revitalume declines to mention, if even present.
Revitalume is rather affordable at a sixty-five-dollar cost and states that results can be seen within minutes. Actuality says that most results, if any, do not appear for several days and sometimes as long as thirty days later. Revitalume got a few things right, but seemed to trip up a bit at the finish line.
