Review Overview

Un-Wrinkle Eye makes the same “look years younger” claim as the other Un-Wrinkle products, but doesn’t have nearly as interesting a formula, at least not if you’re looking for a peptide-rich product (there’s no pressing need to do that, but peptides do get a lot of buzz). This has purpose as a lightweight moisturizer for slightly dry skin anywhere on the face, and it contains some good antioxidants in packaging that will keep them stable during use. However, this will not lead to lineless eyes.

Claims

Exclusive, patent pending blend of six powerful ANTI-AGING PEPTIDES and NEUROPEPTIDES (highly concentrated at 23%) are combined with three new cutting-edge ingredients especially created for the eye area. Includes neuropeptides, SYN-AKE at 4%, SNAP-8 at 10% and ARGIRELINE (hexapeptide) at 3% and peptides, SYN-COLL at 3% and MATRIXYL 3000 (a dual peptide) at 3%. Visibly reduces the appearance of deep and fine eye wrinkles from the first application. Diminishes the appearance of lines, crows feet and other skin creases around the eye area. Advanced technology leaves the delicate eye area feeling firmer, looking soft, smooth and years younger.

Brand Overview

Peter Thomas Roth At-A-Glance

Strengths: Provides complete ingredient lists on Web site; most products are fragrance-free; very good AHA products; wide selection of water-soluble cleansers and scrubs; some excellent sunscreens, benzoyl peroxide products, and many antioxidant-rich formulas.

Weaknesses: Can be pricey; some products contain irritants; jar packaging for several products that contain air and light sensitive ingredients.

Unique in the world of spa and salon specialty lines, Peter Thomas Roth is a large but straightforward line with mostly uncomplicated formulations that, for the most part, are quite good and state-of-the-art. Unlike many product lines, most of the acne, AHA, BHA, sunscreen, and moisturizing products contain what they should to be effective and helpful for skin.

A novel aspect of this line is that there are few (if any) nonsense ingredients. Roth products conspicuously lack the exotic, potentially irritating, sensitizing, and often unnecessary plant extracts and the irritating, fragrant plant oils that show up in most pricey skin-care lines, especially spa lines. Many of these are fragrance free, and lack the long lists of complicated ingredients—all great qualities for any skincare brand.

Even more impressive are the well-formulated cleansers, sunscreens, AHA products, and skin lighteners. The moisturizers have improved somewhat, and most are now packaged so that the light- and air-sensitive ingredients remain stable. In fact, Roth's packaging deserves special mention because it is exceptionally utilitarian and gender-friendly.

No pretty pink bottles, sexy curved jars, or bejeweled caps— which reinforces the clinical nature of Peter Thomas Roth. Overall, this line should be admired for its simplicity and, for the most part, for its well-thought-out formulations.

After all that glowing praise, what you should be aware of are the instances of products containing potential irritants (noted in their respective reviews) as well as the products in jar packaging that contain ingredients which are sensitive to air and light.
