I have now been using the Super Eye Serum for around 6 months and I hope that my experiences might help anyone who is thinking about purchasing the product or who is in the early stages of using it.
In need of a potent remedy for one very deep line that had developed under one eye and for fine lines under both eyes, I was interested to read positive reviews on this and other Verso products. Although the price seemed high relative to some other eye serums on the market, I was reassured by the quality ingredients and I was prepared to pay whatever it took to get rid of the small ravine that was developing under my eye!
I began using the serum around 6 months ago. For the first few days, the area under my eyes would feel hot and a little uncomfortable after application. As the days turned into weeks, the heat turned to a marked stinging sensation. In short, this serum hurt and it hurt a lot! Although I don't recommend that others ignore signs of discomfort, I persisted. The skin did not look irritated or red. It did not dry out or show any signs of being unduly affected. As the weeks went on, the pain that I had initially felt after application subsided.
After around 2 months of use I was neither impressed nor disappointed. I did not see any great change in my under-eye area and I questioned whether I had wasted £65 on a product that was, at best, mediocre. Should I continue to use it or not. I persisted.
I am now 6 months into using the Verso Super Eye Serum. This month I have looked at my under eye area and I am quite confident in saying that change is happening! It hasn't been an overnight miracle and I haven't suddenly got the eye area of a 12 year-old (I am 36 years old - but an old-looking 36!) However, I have not developed any further fine lines and those that I had 6 months ago are definitely beginning to diminish. As for the deep line under my left eye, I do believe that there has been a marked improvement. I would say that it is at least 50% better than it was 6 months ago and I am hopeful that if I continue using the serum, I will see further improvement. Since I use about half a pea-sized amount (yes, half!) for both eyes each evening I don't think I will get through this huge bottle (30mls for an eye cream?!) in the next 10 years.
My message to any potential users is not to expect an overnight miracle but to allow the serum to renew and revive your eye area long-term. As long as you are not experiencing any great discomfort (I don't recommend ignoring signs of irritation like I did,) then give the serum at least 6 months before making any final judgement on it. If I had reviewed this 4 or even 2 months ago I might have said it is ineffective. With time however, it has proved to be quite the hero!
