    I've had some really great changes, especially in my eye area, using DMAE amine. It's like I had a freaking eyelift! It's not just an eyecream though. DMAE has been shown in real medical studies (/home/leaving?target=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.psfskincare.com%2Fdmaesources.htm" class="Popup) to firm skin all over the face.

    There are lots of big name cosmetic companies now putting out DMAE products, but most of them are not formulated the same way as the product that was studied. They're using too little DMAE amine (or using DMAE bitartrate instead...which does nothing) and buffering it to make the product non-acidic (probably to appeal to a wider audience). The DMAE amine level must be at least 3% and have a certain acidic pH. This is the only DMAE product I know of meeting that criteria, and it's affordable too:

    DMAE stinks though...like ammonia. It disappears after it dries, but it's stinky when wet.

    Keep in mind that it is very acidic, and therefore might be drying. So if you tend towards dry, you will need to use a moisturizer afterwards. Be sure to wait the 10-20 minutes after DMAE application before applying anything else to get the most benefit out of it. I use it twice a day and get great results, but some people can see results using it once per day.

    Is the smell strong? On the site it mentions it has a fish-like smell.

    Yes, as I said in my post above...it stinks like ammonia or fish. It quickly dries though, and the smell disappears.

    I use Oil of Olay Regenerist eye lifting serum. I don't really have any wrinkles or anything like that, I just tend to get really puffy eyes in the morning. Since I've started using this product, I haven't had any puffy eyes in the mornings whatsoever.
