And as someone who doesn't use a ton of eye products, I don't expect a lot when I try something new. That's why I was so shocked by Park Perfection's Instant Eye Lift, which completely changed the appearance of my face within seconds of application. I audibly gasped when I first tried the Park Perfection eye treatment. The last thing I expected to see was my under-eye area smoothing out right before my eyes, but that's exactly what it did. The dermatologist-developed eye treatment, created by Dr. Alan J. Parks, uses a strong concentration of ingredients like sodium silicate and sodium polystyrene sulfonate. These form a film that superficially tightens your skin, which is why it provides "instant" results. Park Perfection also contains a nourishing seaweed extract that protects skin from oxidative stress. In layman's terms? "The cream contains a variety of botanicals and peptides that help strengthen the skin and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles," Dr. Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, tells InStyle. Courtesy Shop now: $90; amazon.com or parkperfection.com The Park Perfection Instant Eye Lift will tingle as it tightens your skin, which I have to admit is a weird feeling at first. As it happens, my fine lines, puffiness, and small bumps completely disappear. Instead, I am left with polished and soft skin that looks like it just got injected with Botox. (And like I got the best night's sleep ever.) The best part? The sensation lasts hours, which means just a dab of Park Perfection is all I need before signing on to a Zoom meeting. Even though it was developed for the eye area, customers use the cream on their foreheads, smile lines, and even between their brows thanks to that tightening effect. And while the instant results are great, you might be wondering — will it help your under-eye appearance in the long run? Dr. Zeichner says yes. "When you see an instant, visible improvement, you want to keep using the product, which means you can also get the long term benefits," he explains. Park Perfection's Instant Eye Lift has earned a permanent spot in my skincare routine, and believe me, you'll want to add it to yours, too.
