SimySkin™ is a US cosmetics and beauty care company that was new to the BIZ, which makes sense since it’s just over a year old, having launched in February of 2014. Their mission is to offer anti-aging skin care products that are high quality, effective, and low cost. SimySkin™ takes skin care very seriously and in fact has an oncologist on the team as skin cancer has become a major issue in the past 30 years.
They sent the BIZ two different eye serums to test: Phase II, which is meant for those aged 25 to 45, and Phase III, for those aged 45+. Phase I is for those aged 18 to 25…we wish!! What kind of results did we have after a few months of testing? Read on to find out!
LISA’S SIDE: PHASE II EYE SERUM ($55)
Ok, I will be honest…I am actually a smidge older than the end of the Phase II age spectrum. I only surpass it by a few years, though, so for comparison purposes we thought it would be just fine. I like the fact that the ingredients in the eye serums change based on age as our skin care needs change as we get older. The Phase II Eye Serum is formulated to address dark circles and puffiness, along with providing protection, skin cell regeneration, and enhanced skin elasticity.
The eye serum is lightweight and comes in very interesting packaging. The top of the bottle has a dispenser, along with a cooling metal ball that spreads the serum while calming and depuffing the undereye area. Phase II gives immediate gratification, instantly soothing and smoothing skin – it truly is a noticeable difference. The main ingredients include Dipetide-2 for conditioning skin and improving circulation, along with hyaluronic acid for hydration and elasticity.
SimySkin™ reports some impressive results:
– Anti-inflammatory reduction of 33%
** Clinical Participants 70% experienced skin improvement after 56 days
I most definitely saw an improvement and I really like this serum. Considering my age, I could probably use Phase III now, but I do think that Phase II is a terrific option for those in the 25 to 45 age range.

MARCIA’S SIDE: PHASE III EYE SERUM ($65)
I can look at it one of two ways – I’m worth more ($65 instead of $55) or I’m older (over 45). I think I’ll just take both. I can’t deny that I’m over 45 and I know darn well I’m worth more! If you’ve followed Beauty Info Zone you might know that I am crazy about eye creams of all sorts. It’s the one product I crave and truthfully I own a lot. SimySkin™ Anti-Aging Eye Serum Phase III is a nice addition to my collection but it’s not going to stop me from continuing my search.
This is a very gentle and lightweight serum that helps in a myriad of ways. The goal is to correct, repair, protect and reverse visible signs of aging. SimySkin™ uses 6 active ingredients in this eye serum that work on decreased appearance of puffiness, darkcircles and fine lines. That’s what I desperately need.
Two of the most important ingredients are Hersperidin Methylchalcone which helps reduce dark circles and discoloration, and Acetyl Dipeptide to reduce the appearance of lines and calm the skin.
The unique ball massager on the applicator tip is a nice touch but I found I had to use so much more of the eye serum than I felt necessary or it would stick on my skin and not move. I didn’t use it most of the time but I did love it in the morning under my eyes when I looked particularly puffy.
Unfortunately this has a fragrance which is why I said it won’t stop me from my search. I can tolerate the fragrance in the morning but I can’t tolerate it at night. As someone who struggles with insomnia I am very picky about what I smell like in bed since anything can keep me from falling asleep. The fragrance of SimySkin™ Anti-aging Eye Serum kept me awake. I didn’t feel like it dissipated quickly enough. I know that this wouldn’t stop most people, it’s just my opinion. If you aren’t sensitive to fragrance and want an eye serum that helps with all the over 45 signs of aging, then consider this one since it does work well.
