First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy Review: Is it Really Useful?
First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy is an eye cream which is said to be a “complete eye treatment,” including a wide range of ingredients intended to support a healthy appearance to the delicate skin around the eyes, reduce the appearance of swelling, and help with discoloration. It is sold through various retailers: we were able to locate it at one reputable online outlet at $36 for a 10 mL bottle, which comes with an applicator tip. Consumer protections seem to be dependent on where you shop, which is something to take into account if you decide on this product.
The full ingredients list of this product is available on many retailers websites, although the full list is too long for us to include in this review. The active ingredients cited are as follows:
- Retinyl Palmitate and GABA: Included for their ability to support the health and structure of connective tissue in skin, especially in thin skin such as that around the eyes.
- Glycerin: A naturally-sourced moisturizer that can make skin appear plumper and more hydrated.
- Caffeine and Licorice Root: Natural tighteners which can cause immediate results and produce tighter-looking skin
- Coralline extract: A red algae derivative which supports healthy blood flow into tissues, removing toxins and encouraging healing.
After washing your face and patting gently dry, squeeze the tube to release a small amount of the product. Dot it gently from the inner to the outer corner of the undereye. Use the metal applicator to blend it in, and apply under the browline if you want immediate luminosity. Use at least twice a day – more often is OK.
- The product targets the skin under the eyes, which is more delicate than that of other parts of the face.
- Safe to use frequently, according to the makers
- Ingredients have some clinical backing behind them, especially the retinyl compounds
- Product is free from parabens, sulfates and phthalates, artificial fragrances and colors, and is allergy-tested
- There is no clinical evidence provided that this formula in particular has any meaningful or significant effect, especially as compared to other products.
- The price is quite high for the amount which you get
- Few customer reviews and testimonials are available for this product.
- The product contains caffeine, which some users may be sensitive to; if you do go with this product, be sure to take that into account.
First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy works on three different levels and seems to come from a reputable manufacturer, as well as including ingredients with some clinical backing and being available in a range of retail outlets. However, there is no clinical information provided to support the idea that this product in particular is particularly effective, and we do not have all the information on how much of the various ingredients are included. It is also definitely on the costly side. You may be able to find an equally effective product at a much more reasonable price – be sure to shop around!

Also Remember These Dermatologist Recommended Important Tips:
- Age has nothing to do with the lines that appear on the corners of your eyes... it's a combination of heredity and careless abuse of the area.
- Skin is skin... it all needs to be cared for in one way or another. For my younger readers, this means not pulling on the skin when removing eye makeup.
- The eye area is prone to fine lines and wrinkles, so it is really important not over-work the area, squint, and stay away from smokey rooms. Your eyes won't like that either.
- One of the best ways to protect this area of your face is to put on a pair of sunglasses every single time you go outside spring, summer, fall and winter.
- There are very few oil glands in the eye area, so it can dry out very quickly, especially if you spend a great deal of time out of doors.
- When you chose an eye cream, be sure to choose one that is especially formulated for this delicate skin. Don't use a day cream that could be full of ingredients that will irritate this area. Too rich a cream can cause as many problems as ignoring the area.
