Filled to the brim with plant extracts and peptides, Tata Harper Elixir Vitae Eye Serum promises to minimize the look of fine lines and brighten the eye area.

Part of Tata Harper’s “Supernatural Collection,” the line’s self-described most-advanced collection of natural skincare treatments, Elixir Vitae Eye Serum blurs fine lines and wrinkles thanks to acmella extract, which is considered a natural alternative to Botox.

{Tata Harper sent me a sample of Elixir Vitae Eye Serum to test and review. It costs $265 for a 0.5-ounce glass pump bottle.}

That had me applying Elixir Vitae Eye Serum not only around my eyes, but also right in between my brows.

And a little around my mouth.

And maybe some on my neck.

Tata gives her blessing to use Elixir Vitae Eye Serum in this way, saying it’s effective as a targeted line treatment. This is cheaper (and safer) than Botox, right?

While I don’t exactly have lines to cover or fill at this point, a little natural prevention doesn’t hurt. Except when it comes to the price. Tata Harper’s Elixir Vitae Eye Serum carries a $265 price tag.

The half-ounce bottle will last you a while, even with twice daily use, as you only need about half a pump to cover both eyes. If you use it on additional areas, you’ll of course run through it quicker; just watch it with the dosing. This stuff is ultra-concentrated, and you really don’t need much because it’s so easily spreadable.

Tata Harper calls out some fast-acting superstar ingredients in this blend:

  • Spanish Lavender: Neuropeptide made of Spanish lavender oil that can quickly reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Snowflake Bulb Extract: Smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hibiscus Peptides: Can quickly decrease the appearance of wrinkles
  • Cedrus Atlantica Bark Extract: Brightens the eyes and reduces the look of dark shadows
  • Viniferin: Polyphenol that helps reduce the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Aloe barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Glycerin, Aqua/Water/Eau, Propanediol, Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) Oleosomes*, Cucumus Sativus (Cucumber) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Behenate, Lactobacillus Ferment, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cetyl Alcohol, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil*, Cetearyl Olivate, Olea europea (Olive) Oil*, Theobroma Grandiflorum Seed Butter, Lactobacillus, Iris Pallida (Sweet Iris) Leaf Cell Extract, Hydrolyzed Hibiscus Esculentus Seed Extract, Acmella Oleracea (Spilanthes) Extract, Cedrus Atlantica Bark Extract, Sorbitan Olivate, Opuntia ficus indica (Barbary fig) leaf cell extract, Anogeissus Leiocarpus (Akulia) Bark Extract, Sclerotium gum, Leucojum Aestivum (Summer Snowflake) Bulb Extract, Dextrin, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit extract, Xanthan gum, Borago officinalis (Borage) Leaf Extract*, Arnica montana (Arnica) Extract*, Acacia Senegal Gum, Polygonum fagopyrum (Buckwheat) Seed Extract, Sodium hyaluronate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Lavandula stoechas (Spanish Lavender) Extract, Narcissus tazetta (Daffodil) Bulb Extract*, Algae extract, Vitis vinifera Grape Juice Extract, Medicago sativa (Alfalfa) Extract*, Spiraea Ulmaria Flower Extract*, Sambucus Nigra Fruit Extract, Calendula officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract*, Tocopherol, Aroma**, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Citral, Citronellol, Eugenol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool

Another thing to consider with Elixir Vitae Eye Serum is with that ultra-concentrated, plant-packed ingredients list comes a scent. It’s strong and very floral (think iris, lavender and daffodil). If you have sensitive skin or are prone to irritation, you’ll definitely want to sample and test before dotting all over your face.

I’ve had zero irritation with this serum, but the scent could definitely use a little taming — and this is coming from a floral junkie. Thankfully, it dissipates rather quickly, and you’re left with plump, soft skin that’s noticeably brighter.

That’s the main benefit I found from Elixir Vitae Eye Serum — brightening. To get that brightening, you’ll have to be diligent about consistent application. I noticed it after just three weeks of use.

It was easy to stay on the testing train because Elixir Vitae Eye Serum’s texture is absolutely perfect. It’s a thicker serum compared to true, watery serums, but it’s not quite as dense as a cream. This makes the formula feel light yet substantial, as the serum melts into the skin and becomes more fluid.

While this dreamy texture has me using Elixir Vitae Eye Serum regularly, I may be rationing out the last few pumps as I decide whether or not I can afford it’s a repurchase. It would definitely get a hard, second look if the fragrance factor was toned down just a notch.

If we can move beyond the prohibitive price, it’s inspiring to consider the technology in the formula — on point for what green, luxury beauty needs.

It’s still common for people to assume that natural beauty products are just DIY concoctions with little to no science or advanced technology behind them. Tata Harper is absolutely changing that conversation, and that, to me, is priceless.
