If you’ve been increasingly seeing the signs of aging reflected in the mirror, you have also probably been increasingly trying various serums and creams that promise results.
They all do promise results, after all, or else why would you buy them?
But with so many eye cream products on the market, all promising results, how can you find one that actually measures up to the hype?

With their claims of being a viable alternative to injections and surgery, we just had to take a closer look…

Elite Serum RX brand overview
Elite Serum RX is the creation of SkinPro, a global designer and distributer of skin care since 2009.
The product itself is the brain child of cosmetic pharmacist Irwin Grams, and is produced out of a state-of-the-art laboratory facility in Miami, Fl.
While in production, the facility was monitored by not only the United States Food and Drug Administration and the State of Florida Health Department, but also the Department of Agriculture, and the products are still graciously open to monitoring today.
SkinPro has been known since its inception as a force in the skin care industry by manufacturing products with documented efficacy, and available to the general public (distributed worldwide) as an option to surgery, Botox, and other injectables.
Product and claims
According to the Elite Serum RX website:
A concentrated dose of ultra-moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid and Seaweed Extract helps to increase skin suppleness and fill delicate fine lines. Concurrently, the potent peptides of Argireline, Hyloxyl, Eyeliss, Matrixyl3000, SYN-COLL and SNAP-8 have been shown to revitalize lost collagen and fibronectin in the skin. It is this natural loss of collagen that causes the thinning skin and wrinkling that is normally associated with aging skin.
Elite Serum Rx (Extra Strength) contains only the best clinically tested peptides from the likes of Pentapharm, Sederma, Lipotec, LucasMeyer and Centerchem. These companies are at the forefront of the latest in advanced dermatological discoveries. SkinPro is always one of the first manufacturers to know about new breakthroughs in skin care technology, and an early adopter of its implementation in products.
So, while there are a number of versions of Elite Serum that have been produced over the years, this official website sells only the current and most updated formula that reflects the pinnacle of continued research and development. In order to guarantee authenticity and that you are buying the latest and most efficacious version available, SkinPro highly recommends that you use only Elite Serum Rx (Extra Strength).

So what does this mean for you?
Boy, that’s a lot of technical-sounding terms in there!
We don’t blame you if you’re a bit confused.
The bottom line is, Elite Serum RX has been developed in a laboratory using ingredients said to be an effective and potent blend of peptides (both pharmaceutical grade and patented) as well as natural-based moisturizers (seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid).
This mix, according to the research presented on the website, is enough to repair skin, reduce wrinkles, and restore elasticity around the eyes… which means, younger looking eyes without injections or surgery.
According to the Elite Serum RX website:
Elite Serum RX contains an unprecedented and extremely effective, highly concentrated blend of potent medical-grade patented peptides and nature’s most gifted moisturizers.
Argireline, SYN-TC, SNAP-8, Haloxyl, Eyeliss, Matrixyl3000, SYN-Coll, Red & Green Seaweed Extract, Hyaluronic Acid.
Again, you would not be alone if the only words even slightly recognizable to you in the above list were “red & green seaweed extract.”
The website does contain a full, and lengthy, explanation of each of the above ingredients and the part they play in the formulation of Elite Serum RX, complete with accompanying charts, graphs, and before/after pictures galore.
Application and regimen recommendations
While the exact application instructions are not found on the Elite Serum RX website, the instructions can be found in numerous reviews.
- Squirt serum on finger and tap gently under the eye, blending well
- Use twice daily, morning and night, under makeup or alone
While the giant syringe packaging seems a bit comical, it is engineered to dispense the right amount of serum with each pump. The container also helps to avoid cross-contamination, since you are not constantly dipping your hands into it, or exposing the product to air.
We looked on several sites, sure that these claims this of being a true alternative to Botox were inflated… too good to be true.
But, most reviews, both by consumers and bloggers alike, were very positive! The claims of reduced puffiness, fewer visible wrinkles, and improved skin texture in the eye area were virtually unanimous.
Most reviews came from consumers between the ages of 30 and 65+, and the majority of them all reported visible improvements in crow’s feet, under-eye bags and puffiness, under-eye darkness, and firmness in the eye area.
Many people also used the product on lines around lips and sagging upper eyelids, and saw visible improvement there as well. Elite Serum RX seems to be in direct competition with products such as StriVectin, and is exhibiting comparable results.

If you are sick of seeing your age reflected in the wrinkles and bags and puffiness around your eyes, you might be considering Botox, other injectables, or surgery.
Before you make that much of a financial (and painful) investment, you might just want to try Elite Serum RX.
It contains clinical levels of documented-effective ingredients, is supported by FDA-monitored testing and trials, and, despite a relatively high price-point, seems to deliver overwhelmingly positive (and promising) results!
