I'm not usually one to write reviews, but this product is so good I just had to get off my lazy ass and share! My eyes have always had the tendency to be puffy with dark circles, especially when I wake up. I've tried a lot of different eye creams to combat this (Avene, Estee Lauder, Lancome, H20), but I find that this little unassuming eye cream from Body Shop has performed the best.
I use it morning and evening, patting a small amount all over my eye until it sinks in. The texture is very moisturizing and non-irritating - very important to me as I've tried a few eye creams in the past that has left me with milia :(
After using this for 5 months (still hasn't run out), I can definitely say that my dark undereye circles have reduced and it is effective for getting rid of puffiness. As always, it is not a complete miracle product - eye contour is still not completely dark-circle/puff-free, but it is close enough! Not to mention that it's pricing is reasonable, and its packaging is great!
Just love this eye cream! Luckily I don't have a lot of wrinkles around my eyes (probably because I have oily skin and I also use Emu oil at night), I find it really softens and smoothes out the skin around the eyes and doesn't accentuate any small lines I do have as most gels do. It also reduces puffiness on days when I didn't get enough sleep. This eye cream also doesn't make my foundation peel off, which is a bonus! Have been buying this for at least 4 years and will continue to do so!
I'm 19 and have been told to splurge on 'prevention' product, especially to prevent early wrinkles. Soooo i tried this since i trust Body Shop for their natural and harmless ingredients. I have dark circles anyway and the campaign on its bottle said 'improving dark circles' AND 'help prevent wrinkles'. Pretty much sold at that time.
Well, it's been 2 weeks since the first time i used it, and it's good. Less appearance of dark circles and i can feel more moist on my eyes area.
Oh and i feel my eyes are less puffy! The only thing that turns me down is it kinds of irritating my eye when i put it too close to my eye. It's like i got a burning-feeling although just for a while.
I think this is good for someone who wants to prevent wrinkles, NOT improve/reduce it.
What can I say? I love this eye cream for both day and night use. I have dark circles and puffy eyes. Ugh! I was looking for an eye cream that would address these issues as well as hydrate my under eye area. I came across The Body Shop Wise Woman Eye Serum on MUA (where else?!) Now, its not your typical drugstore price. It comes housed in a small bottle (15ml) with a pump for $24. The claim is that they use "cotton" fillers to fill in lines. I love the pump. It squirts outs as much as needed. I hate the ones where it shoots out an unnecessary amount. This one does not do it. Whew. But moving on, this eye cream has some good ingredients such as aloe, olive oil, marula oil, shea butter and witch hazel. I honestly can't say that my dark circles are diminished but I can say my eyes always feel hydrated and just fantastic. I use it in the morning under my concealer and it does wonders. The little crepey lines are slowly disappearing. I have tried other eye creams in the past that would cause slight irritation, milia or swollen eyes. I can say this eye cream does none of those things for me. Also, this little bottle really lasts a loooong time. A little pump is all that I use for both eyes. if you are looking for an eye cream that is deeply nourishing and has contour and lifting and all those benefits, I would not look here. This to me is a very good basic moisturizing eye cream. I would definitely give this a try.
I usually cover up my dark under eyes circle with lots and heaaaavy concealer and I still can see it, and the problem with concealer is that it's cakey in the middle of the day, so I thought I really need a good (but affordable) eye cream. I logged on to makeupalley and decided to give wise woman TBS eye cream a try.
I've only been using this for like 5 days, but really, my dark circles under my eyes .. well not really gone.. but really really gone away with just a few dabs of concealer, and the skin around my eyes is really soft! Just moist moist moist!
For me this skin (for now) give more than what I expected
I have used this eye cream quite consistently over the past 3 or 4 years and while it is no "miracle" product, it definately soothes and moisterizes my eye area and improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles, which is what I'm after. It absorbs quickly, works well under make-up and can be used on the entire eye area (including the eyelid) without irritation. I have had no problem whatsoever with the pump. I am able to dispense the exact amount of product that I want every time I use it. I feel that at $24 this eye cream is a steal! And when you factor in the awesome deals The Body Shop offers a few times a year, you really can't go wrong!
Do not buy the Wise Woman Eye Cream if you are looking for easy to use and value. The packaging forces wastage and it clogs at the opeing, so you end up with big white lumps on your face. I was very dissappointed with this product as hate wastage and found the packaging realy inappropriate given the Body shop philosophy. The pump makes you use more than you need - you cannot control it. It clogs in the dispenser overnight so half of what you pump out is unusable as it sets into a hard lump. You then have to pick the lumps off your face. I feel really ripped off as I have only been able to use half of it and I am upset at the wastage. It goes against why I am a Body Shop customer and I would only try it again if they change the packaging.
Didn't do anything for my fine lines, etc. However, neither have any of the eye creams I've ever tried.
This is a good light eye cream which sits well under makeup and sinks it rapidly. Moisturises adequately but doesn't really do anything else. The packaging is horrible, creates a lot of product wastage. Firstly, the pump doesn't allow you to control how much cream to dispense properly and most of the time too much would come out. Secondly, the little bits remaining at the mouth of the pump will dry out and crust over which you pump out the next time you use it. Lots of wastage.
Search for a better eye cream shall continue!
I have been using this product for the last 3 weeks. I am almost 30, and have started to notice the skin around my eyes looking a little more lined, so thought it was time to invest in an eye cream!
Really like this product - it feels light yet luxurious on application. It isn't oily at all, but does moisturise the eye area well, without stinging or causing irritation. I can see a difference in my eye area - it does appear a little smoother and the fine lines are a bit more plumped out.
The product is really good under make up as well. It doesn't leave any residure, so there is no pilling.
The packaging is also very good - a cute little gold bottle with a pump. The pump does dispense slightly more than I need, as a little goes a long way, but obviously you can just press it down halfway, instead of all the way - it's not a problem. I will happily repurchase this.
I preface this review by saying I am very skeptical of eyecreams, yet I continue my search, as do we all. I have had this about 2 weeks, and I like it. It's no miracle....but I do feel it is taking the edge off the look of my eyes. A little improvement in the crepiness, and a little improvement in the darkness. This is a first for me, to see ANY change. I am cautiously optimistic about the long term result. At $24, it's not bad....it is going to last a while, the pump is awesome. I'm using only at night, as my eyelids tend to get greasy during the day and I don't need to add to that.
