City Views – rapid repair eye cream

City Views - rapid repair eye cream

Interest is growing about a new facial skincare product from City Cosmetics’ called City Views, a rapid repair eye cream.

City Views is purported to offer superior anti-aging benefits, allowing the face to look younger by limiting the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

It seems like there are new eye creams being sold every months, is this one any different than the rest?

What Makes Rapid Repair Eye Cream Unique?

City Views is designed to address the five signs of aging skin; wrinkles, sagging, dryness, puffiness, and discoloration. To treat these conditions, the product contains 3 unique ingredients listed below:

Argireline, otherwise known as acetyl hexapeptide-3, is a synthetic peptide used as an anti-wrinkle ingredient. A 2013 China-based clinical trial involving mice skin shows daily argireline application rejuvenates aging skin.[1]

Retinyl, also known as vitamin A palmitate, inducts glycosaminoglycan which retains water and increases collagen production, likely improving skin and minimizing wrinkles.[2]

Matrixyl 3000 is a proprietary ingredient said to tighten skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I couldn’t find any scientific research about Matryxyl 3000.

How To Use City Views

1. Clean and dampen face
2. Pat small amount of product around eye
3. Perform twice daily – once in the morning and again in the evening

Are There Any User Reviews?

Reading user reviews is one of the best ways to determine whether a skincare product works. Unfortunately, I was unable to find any unbiased reviews on the product.

How Much Does It Cost?

City Views can be purchased online directly from the company at citycosmetics.com and costs approximately $67 plus shipping and handling.

Final Thoughts on City Views

I love eye creams and think most of them are effective for improving skin health and limiting wrinkles. So when a new eye cream product claims to be unique and stand out from the crowd, I pay attention.

Unfortunately, I don’t see much in City Views to believe it’s the amazing eye product its advertising sets it out to be.

The product has good ingredients but many of them are unproven or are found in cheaper, comparable eye creams.

I also want to see more user reviews on a product before I spend $70 on it.

For these reasons, I think City Views has potential, but it needs more clinical evidence and user reviews before I suggest using it.

    I ordered the rapid eye repair after reading consumer guide. I have been using it for 3 weeks for small crows feet. I think it’s fantastic. My eyes look lifted. I’m 43 years old and people confuse me with my 28 year old coworkers! How’s that for results. I am a loyal customer.

    Unfortunately, I must say I’m disappointed again. After trying so many different products and seeing no significant results, I was excited to learn about this new cream. I read excellent reviews on several consumer review sites online and thought I’d try it. Ordering was super easy; I also get a significant discount as a new customer and paid $39. The first shipment didn’t make it so I called customer service. They were very nice and re-shipped it. I received it within two days. I have been using the cream for almost three weeks and not only do I not see any improvement, I’m afraid the wrinkles under my eyes look worse. I’m 33 and started noticing sagging skin and a few wrinkles in the last year or two. The cream is very thick and doesn’t absorb very well. It leaves the skin very dry. It does nothing for dark circles. I plan on using it a bit longer in case it’s too early to judge the results, but as of now I’m very disappointed.

    Where did you get it for that price? I’m interested in trying it, but the price is steep.

    I recently saw the eye cream on the TV program The Talk. It was said that the cream elinates lines around the eyes and greatly reduces the tiny bumps around the eyes and also on the face – caused by the use of faciial makeup over a long period of time. Will this happen – can I expect by using this eye cream to see those tiny bumps eliminateed around my eye and my face?

    Elda, that is what it is designed to do. But, everyone responds differently to the product so it’s hard to say how you will respond to it. Also, we don’t sell the product, we just review it.
