Peter Thomas Roth INSTANT FIRMx EYE Review

This is not your average eye cream. In fact, I wouldn’t describe it as an eye cream at all, it’s more of an eye gel. This eye gel instantly and temporarily tightens, firms, and smooths the look of your eye area. It diminishes the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and under-eye puffiness.

Instant FIRMx Eye

This miracle eye product is good for all skin and for all ages. I may be a bit younger than the women shown in the before and after pictures on this product’s box, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t benefit from it. I bought this product to take care of puffiness and it does an excellent job. Also, even though I don’t have any prominent wrinkles, it still makes my under eye area look smoother than it does when I’m not using the product.

Instant FIRMx Eye is formulated with a whole slew of effective ingredients. Curious about this miraculous concoction? I was too.

Here’s a list of some of what goes into it:

Firm-A-Tite – a trio of instant skin tighteners that temporarily lifts, firms and tightens the appearance of the skin.

Eyeliss – a trio of peptides that work together to help visibly diminish the look of under-eye puffiness.

Eye Regener – targets the look of bags under the eyes by helping to visibly diminish the appearance of excess fullness.

Argatensyl – immediately smooths and instantly tightens the appearance of skin.

Vitamins C & E – provide anti-oxidant benefits.

Pro Vitamin B5 – helps condition and nourish the look of skin.

Retinyl Palmitate – a form of Vitamin A that is more gentle than retinol.


I purchased this firming eye treatment from for $38.00.

How to Apply It

It is recommended that you apply this product with a brush. I’ve been using my ring finger to gently smooth this product on but would buy the set that comes with a brush for application in the future. Buying the brush by itself before needing to replace this tube is also an option.

Before utilizing this eye gel, wash your face with an oil-free cleanser. Allow your skin to completely dry and do not apply any other products to your eye area.

Apply this product to your under eye area, where you have crow’s feet, along the bottom of your eyebrow, and on the “11” lines between your brows. Do not apply this to your eyelids, Peter Thomas Roth actually sells a separate product specifically for that area. After applying this eye gel, preferably with a brush, allow the gel to dry. Give it 5 minutes and during this time it is recommended that you remain expressionless.

If you apply too much, you may see a white residue on your skin. If this happens, simply wipe the excess residue away with a moistened cotton swab.

Firming Eye Cream

Using Instant FIRMx Eye for the first time was a bit strange. You can immediately feel it tightening your skin and this feeling lasts. It almost feels like you have an eye mask on.

The difference in the look of my under eye area was immediate and significant after applying this eye treatment. My under eye area looked like it had been blurred in a photo editing app! Once it was completely dry, continuing with my regular makeup routine wasn’t a problem. I was able to easily apply concealer over this without any issues as long as I waited the full 5 minutes for it to dry. If I attempted to put concealer on too soon after applying this eye gel, it became cakey and the eye gel flaked off.

I use this as part of my morning skincare routine only. It is not recommended that you use it at night and since the effects are readily visible, I think it would be wasteful if you did. Go for an overnight eye cream while you’re sleeping instead, save this for waking hours!

Bottom Line: Instant FIRMx Eye delivers on its promises. The almost instantaneous results are worth experiencing for yourself. Give it a try, remember that even if you don’t have fine lines or wrinkles, this can help with puffiness. If you find it too intense or don’t like it for any other reason, return it! NBD. I’m a fan and am happy that it’s currently a step in my morning skincare routine.
