There used to be a product called "Sudden Change". It also claimed to get rid of undereye bags. It actually acted like a glue that did seem to work until you put makeup on at which point it flaked off like dead skin. Plexiderm sounds a lot like that.

I remember that Sudden Change stuff from about 20 years ago. That’s exactly what I thought about when I first saw Plexiderm. I know you could buy it at Walgreens, and it wasn’t nearly as expensive as Plexiderm.

So.. how is it when you put makeup on over it?

I know they say it works well when it's used correctly... hold your face still for 10 minutes and don't use too much or it won't work right.

Yes, I posted about Sudden Change earlier in this thread. It's cheap, and it works GREAT for me. BUT no, you can't put makeup over it. I don't wear foundation or powder anyway so it's no problem for me. I love this stuff. Use it all the time.

Active ingredient is serum albumin - basically the stuff that is in egg white.

Got this from the Derm Review:


The key ingredients are the sodium silicate and the magnesium aluminum silicate- in layman’s terms, these are silicate minerals derived from shale clay.
Sodium silicate is primarily used in the manufacturing of soaps and detergents, and helps to balance the pH levels of a product. It’s found in skin care, hair color, shaving products, bath items as well as makeup. Sodium silicate also has industrial uses. It is a corrosion inhibitor and can be found in cement.
Magnesium aluminum silicate is commonly known as purified clay. It can help to absorb excess facial oil and is also used as a thickener.

Ingredients for Sudden Change: as I said, the albumin and hyaluronic acid are the actives:

What is Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum? What makes it work? The benefits of albumin and hyaluronic acid have been mentioned previously, but here’s a list of the other ingredients used: Water, Serum Albumin, SD Alcohol 40, Siloxane Polyalkyleneoxide Copolymer, Hyaluronic Acid, Dextran Sulfate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Quaternium 15, and Methylparaben.

Good luck! I tried something similar but a different brand. Peter Thomas Roth Firmx.

While it does take away bags and gives a firmer under eye appearance, it leaves a flaky white residue that looks bad. I found it impossible to remove the residue. When I did the effects of the firmness would go away.
