About Cura Perfect
How many of us would like to diminish bags, sags, lines, and wrinkles under our eyes in just 90 seconds? And have the results will last up to 8 hours? Who wouldn’t, right?
This is exactly what Cura Perfect—an anti-aging cream that can instantly give you tighter, younger-looking skin—claims to do! You’ll experience rejuvenated skin using Cura Perfect’s lightweight and invisible formula, and you’ll create a surface so smooth that makeup easily glides on.
With Cura Perfect, you’ll be able to watch as bags, puffiness, wrinkles, and crow’s feet disappear right before your eyes, using a blend of 5 rejuvenating copper complexes “infused into a super smoothing serum.”
The whole process works over 5 simple steps:
- Massage/knead the individual Cura Perfect packet for 30 seconds. This activates the serum.
- Cleanse the skin around your eyes and allow time to dry.
- Apply a thin layer of Cura Perfect under each eye and over crow’s feet only once.
- Allow adequate time for the serum to dry, during which time you should remain expressionless.
- Discard the packet.
Let’s keep it real: Is Cura Perfect a safe, effective product? Or is it some scammy, flaky, unknown “cure-all” that you’ll immediately regret purchasing?
We’ll help you figure out the answer by first looking at what causes under-eye aging.
What Causes Visible Signs of Aging Around Your Eyes?
We’ve talked a lot in the past about how excessive sun exposure, smoking, not exercising enough or eating right, and many other lifestyle factors can cause premature aging of facial skin. But is it the same with skin around the eyes?
In short, yes. But the reality is that the areas around your eyes are where the signs of aging first begin to appear. Why?
Because the areas around your eyes are some of the most expressive areas of your face, which means that every time you’re surprised, happy, squinting to see something, and more, you’re stretching this skin. And with time, all this movement eventually causes lines and wrinkles to appear.
However, other signs of aging include under eye puffiness, which is caused when “the tissues around your eyes, including some of the muscles supporting your eyelids, weaken. Normal fat that helps support the eyes can then move into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy. Fluid also may accumulate in the space below your eyes, adding to the swelling.”
This same condition can also lead to sagging skin and dark circles.
Is there anything contained in Cura Perfect that can address these causes of aging?
How Does Cura Perfect’s Ingredients Reduce the Signs of Aging?
We know you’re busy, so we won’t beat around the bush: We’re not told about any of the ingredients contained in Cura Perfect, how they work, or exactly what they can do to prevent under eye aging.
Sure, we’re told that Cura Perfect contains “5 copper complexes,” “light diffusion properties,” and “boosters,” but this is so vague that it tells us very little about what the anti-aging serum actually contains. Time to put on our detective hats!
According to Truth in Aging, copper has several potential anti-aging benefits, primarily related to its anti-inflammatory properties. And since inflammation is thought to be one of the primary causes of aging, this might reduce its physical signs.
On the other hand, outside of copper deficiency and possibly treating some osteoarthritis symptoms, WebMD doesn’t indicate that copper supplementation (whether through a pill or topical application) can provide any benefits.
Similarly, light diffusing makeup is nothing new, as just about every major manufacturer has offered these products for years. These basically work by “reflecting light away from fine lines, wrinkles, or redness.” So they only trick the eye, and don’t provide any physical anti-aging benefits.
In our opinion (although there’s zero indication on the Cura Perfect website), after reviewing hundreds of anti-aging products, we think this serum probably contains some form of snake peptide, similar to anti-aging products like Auralux Snake Venom.
This acts to temporarily reduce muscle contraction, leading to a smoother appearance, which is essentially how Botox works—minus the injections.
But isn’t Cura Perfect endorsed by Dr. Doris Day? What kind of credibility does she bring to the table?

Taking all of this together, what do we recommend for Cura Perfect? Should you roll the dice or stay away?
Some Things To Consider Before Ordering Cura Perfect
We’ve covered a fair amount of ground in this review, so let’s tie everything up in a neat little bow.
Although Cura Perfect seems to have been created by a well known dermatologist with a mostly positive online client reputation, there are some big concerns about this anti-aging serum.
The biggest of these is that we’re told almost nothing about the ingredients Cura Perfect contains. As a result, we can’t know how effective they are, what kinds of results you could realistically expect, if there are any side effects, or many other important pieces of information.
For this reason alone, we’d recommend approaching Cura Perfect with caution. After all, if the company doesn’t think it’s important to tell you what you’ll be putting on your skin, what else are they leaving out?
And since there are hundreds of other products out there that use a muscle-paralyzing peptide (you can even buy it as a standalone product and add it to your favorite moisturizer), we think this provides even more of an incentive to explore all your options before choosing Cura Perfect.

Really worked for me
I was totally skeptical about CuraPerfect but was surprised to see the lines on my upper lip, around the eyes and even the deep furrows on my forehead smooth over completely within a minute of application. I know copper is good for your skin and helps with collagen production but think the action of this probably has more to to with a physical tightening, perhaps through polymerization.
I showed this to a few other people, and they were really amazed at how quickly the effect was seen, and how it erased the furrows of my forehead. It leaves your skin with a tight feeling afterward where it is applied, and does last for hours as long as you don't put anything oily on top of it, I was fine with a water-based moisturizer and makeup.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This stuff makes under eyes like cardboard and shows all the wrinkles. Can't find a phone number to return. Worst eye product I have bought. And I have tried a lot. Don't waste your money or time; you get stuck with it, unfortunately. To me, it's a scam!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Yes, it works!
I was skeptical. I'd been using the Ageless product. I wanted to try this because it is tinted. With this product, as with others, if you use powder after applying, it negates the affect. BUT this product works SO MUCH BETTER! Unless you have very dark circles, the tint is a plus. It would be PERFECT IF it were a bit more tinted!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
