I’ve been using Acyl-Glutathione for the past several weeks and really like it. It gives me an instant lift, both above the eye and a flattening/lifting effect on the undereye area. The first few times I used it, I could literally feel my eye area tightening.

I found that Perricone MD’s Aycl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum did give me a visible lift that I could actually feel. The effect seems to last all day, and it is cumulative. So, using the serum day-after-day gives me the best effect. Since researching this product, I’ve learned that many of Perricone MD products can be layered for a skin care cocktail. Taking this cue, I’ve used is the Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione combed with Perricone MD Advanced Eye Therapy ($98). The combination seems to knock several years off in just a few minutes. It’s subtle, but definitely noticeable. It hasn’t completely eliminated every single fine line. In the short term, this combination certainly softens, flattens the under eye area, eliminates some lines, and lifts the entire eye area. Note that the combination is designed for long-term effect, so I’ll be interested to see whether the results get even better.

I think that Perricone MD has delved into the science of anti-aging. I’m working my way through some of Dr. Perricone’s books, and his knowledge of youthfulness at the cellular level is impressive and credible. The way that he has modified the raw ingredients to ensure that they are of maximum effect when applied on the skin is one of the reasons that I think this is an effective anti-aging skincare line. For its part, Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum works well for both under the eye, as well as on the lid, to help keep the eye area looking fresh.
