This anti-aging cream is a 'confidence boost for your eyes' — and it's on sale for just $29

When it comes to anti-aging skincare, patience is key. Many of the most effective active ingredients like retinoids, vitamin C, alpha and beta hydroxy acids typically fight the visible signs of aging over an extended period of time. If you want to look younger faster, we have the product for you. Peter Thomas Roth's Instant Firmx Temporary Eye Tightener was formulated to banish the appearance of wrinkles and under eye bags right away while also working to improve the skin over time. It's $38 at most retailers and on sale for $29 at Amazon right now.

Smooth under eye skin in a flash, thanks to this effective cream.

This multitasking wonder cream contains an exclusive blend of skin-tightening silicates, seaweed extract, a powerful peptide complex and other anti-aging ingredients. The brand claims it'll instantly help firm up the delicate eye area, minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet, lines, wrinkles and puffiness.

There has to be a catch for a "magic" product like this, right? Nope. No catch here, but there is one important thing you should know: Precise application is key when it comes to this "miracle" eye cream. "It actually works, but you must not get a drop of moisture on the applied area because the magical barrier (that smooths out the bags and puffiness) literally breaks down immediately and the effect is gone," an Amazon reviewer said. "Use a pea size amount on each eye and use your finger to lightly dab an extremely thin coating — go across the entire width of your under eye area and get as close to tour bottom eyelashes as you can."

When the directions are followed properly, the results speak for themselves. "This wins a five-star review from me for the most effective product I’ve ever purchased," another impressed shopper said. "If you can’t afford Botox, this is a great temporary fix! You use such a small amount and literally follow the directions not to move muscles, and the crow's feet etc, disappear like magic! You can feel it working, and it easily lasts all day."

Another shopper said it's even "better than Plexaderm." "I don't use moisturizer, apply Lancome under eye concealer, then dab a tiny amount over and my bags are gone until I wash my face," they shared. "This is life changing. I have tried three other brands and this one is the best."

Okay, we get it. It works. But does it really work instantly? Numerous five-star reviewers confirmed it does. "First of all, I never write reviews, but wow...this stuff works! I am 57 years old, and my under eye area has always made me look tired (to the point people mention it). This stuff made a dramatic difference instantly. I am sure it's temporary, but I couldn't care less. I will say it was a bit 'itchy' when it first started drying, but now that it is fully dry (about three minutes), it does not itch anymore. I'm a believer and hooked," another eye cream user shared.

This happy customer summed it up best: "An instant confidence boost for your eyes. ... It has completely transformed my skincare routine. As someone who values the appearance of firm and youthful-looking skin, this product exceeded my expectations in every way. ... Whether you need a quick pick-me-up before a special event or a reliable primer for daily makeup, this eye tightener delivers impressive results without compromising comfort or quality."

Nearly 6,000 shoppers swear by the formula. Said one: "If you can’t afford Botox, this is a great temporary fix!"
