Sudden Change Eye Serum photos and review

“When all of the sudden…”

The word sudden is a tricky one. Depending on what you’re talking about, it can be really good (like someone whisking you into their arms and kissing you) or really bad (like when the sky opens up and a downpour ruins your outdoor event.) But, it’s usually not a word you use to describe a skin product. Skincare takes weeks, if not months, to see results, except when you’re talking about Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum .


Sudden Change is sold nationwide at CVS, Duane Reade, ULTA, Walgreens and Walmart (among other locations) so I’m sure you’ve seen it before. It promises to deliver a noticeable “lift” to visibly reduce under-eye bags, dark circles, lines, wrinkles and puffiness. And here’s the amazing part: it does it in just three minutes. But does it work? I got to check it out and see for myself.

I’m pretty lucky that in that list of eye woes it tackles, puffiness is my only real issue. Well, the only issue that bothers me, that is. Lack of sleep, eating too much salt, imbibing…they all take their toll.


Sudden Change is super easy to use. Starting with clean, dry skin (skip eye cream, you want oil-free skin for the best results) place two drops on your finger and apply the serum under your eye. You can also mix it with foundation or concealer. I found I like it best with one drop of serum mixed with one drop of tinted moisturizer.

You can feel Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum working immediately by the tightening effect you feel (which is not at all unpleasant). And it’s completely dry in just three minutes. But during these three minutes, don’t smile or talk. Just let the product do its magic.


In these photos, I applied Sudden Change only to the eye shown on the right. Now, I will say my puffiness was not too bad on the day I took this photo. But you can see that said puffiness on the left has all but disappeared on the right. If wrinkles trouble you, it works on those too…


Smiling to show you the full depth of my wrinkles, they appear less deep and definitely smoother on the eye on the right, right?

It requires a bit of finesse to work out your best method of application. Too much product and you can get a bit of a white film on your skin (which can be patted out successfully with a near dry fingertip.) And you want to work fast enough that it doesn’t start to dry before you applied it all, because you shouldn’t apply anything else over it (including more serum).

But this finessing is well worth it. How many products take just three minutes, last for hours and are available for under $15? I think it’s safe to say Sudden Change stands alone there!

Don’t expect the same “ahhhh” feeling and moisturizing results that you get when you apply an eye cream. But when you want (and need) visible results, Sudden Change is hard to beat.
