This post is as much a surprise to me as it might be to you. If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you would realise that even though I’ve written around 80++ posts and most of them are skincare product reviews, one area which I’ve never reviewed before are eye creams/serums. As I’ve mentioned before in my previous posts, I’m very prone to milia around my eye area. Every other eye cream or serum seemed to exacerbate my milia problem and I became wary about trying out specialised eye creams or serums. The Hylamide SubQ Eyes is the first product in years that made me change my mind. At this point in time, you might already guess that my review of this product is going to be positive and you’ll be right!

How does the Hylamide SubQ Eyes fare?
Hylamide SubQ Eyes is touted to be a clinically-advanced serum to target multiple signs of under-eye aging. It contains a Flavanoid Glucoside Bio-active to reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes as well as a Darutoside complex for a lifted upper- and lower-lid appearance. Additionally, Waglerin-1 Peptide Complex is included to reduce the look of dynamic lines around the eyes. What’s interesting is the inclusion of this novel technology called the Nonapeptide-3 Retino-Complex which claims to promote better visible anti-aging results than Retinol with less irritation. Hmmm… Retinol for the eyes without the irritation that usually comes with it? I’m in!
I’ve been using this product on and off since Jan 2017. The thing is, I’m not used to applying eye serums or creams due to the milia problem around my eye area. Therefore, I also tend to forget to apply this product until I’m already lying on my bed. Then the cycle repeats. So you can see that even though I’ve had this product for 1 whole year, I still have about one quarter of the bottle left. However, for the past 3 months or so, I’ve really tried very hard to be consistent in applying this product and was surprised to actually see some results. The main thing which surprised me was that my eye lids appears more lifted and firmer. I have hooded eyes that tends to be puffy in the mornings. Now that I’m using this product consistently, I have more lid-space due to the lifting and my eyes are no longer puffy. Besides that, I find that the fine lines around my eye area looks less obvious and my eye area just generally looks more refreshed overall. I wasn’t expecting much from this product to be honest. I’m keenly aware that you’ll need either botox or fillers to definitively get rid of signs of ageing around the eye area. However, the fact that this product can achieve this sort of results without causing milia around my eyes makes it a winner in my books already. If you have the same problem as me, I would highly recommend that you check out this product!
