The most important thing i need to say bout this product - it's really expensive! It is definitely a very rich cream, so it did help with my flakiness on my eyes but it did nothing for my dark eye circles, fine lines or puffiness. It is a very good base for make up though especially if used with Bobbi Brown concealer. It makes the concealer glide on very nicely and doesnt flake for up to 8 hours for me. However, a few months into using it, i got some lil white spots under my eyes. I was worried it was milia spots, so I stopped using it hoping it will go away. Until now, they are still there, but not bigger and not more than before. Just a warning for those who are prone to milia. I never got them ever before using this.
this product seemed to work to get rid of my eyebags. although my eyebags have not completely disappeared, i have seen it slowly lighten up... i guess i dont' get enough sleep because of school. anyway, i would recommend this product if you want to get rid of dark circles and you get enough sleep. although i found this product quite expensive, i bought it at David Jones for $110, it is so small too! but overall, it worked, so i guess that's what was good!
My skin is dry to very dry and sensitive. This rich eye cream does a great job of moisturizing the skin around my eyes without any irritation. I use it twice a day. Sometimes I use it as a day and night cream. On the downside, it's very thick, and I had to stir it around with a cosmetic spatula to make it easier to apply. The cream comes in a heavy, overly large, glass jar. It would be more sanitary if it came in a lightweight tube instead. I don't plan to repurchase.
Amazing product .. I use this at night as a treatment night cream as I have oily skin it's too rich during the day u set my concealer but at night time it works wonders my eye area is always plump and hydrated and you can see the effects almost instantly . I have tried a lot of eyecreams but I like a rich texture . This is a winner for me
I have eczema and I regularly get it on my eyelids. Finding a moisturizing eye cream that hydrates and doesn't cause an eczema flare up or burning has been difficult. This has been wonderful for my eyelids! I use it morning and night and it keeps my eyelid eczema at bay. Well worth it and it also requires very little product to get great hydration.
After reading the rave reviews on MUA a few months ago, I bought the Bobbi Brown Extra repair eye cream. I'm in my mid-30s and starting to notice small lines under my eyes and "crows feet", and my skin is dry and dehydrated so that makes it look worse.
For the first 2 weeks I was really pleased with the product - it is quite thick, so I used a tiny amount and warmed it between my fingers and patted it around my eye, trying to focus on the "orbital bone" so I didn't get too close to the eye. It seemed to smooth away my fine lines, and even reduced the dark circles under my eyes. The skin around eyes looked refreshed and hydrated, and makeup was SO easy to apply.
I soon noticed however that when I put it on at night it "travelled" up closed to my eye during the course of the night - and sometimes I woke up with my eyes watering. Then I noticed a a small white bump under my eye, something I never had before - milia! Even though I was only using a TINY amount of the cream! Very disappointed.
Another con is the packaging - while the glass jar looks fancy & luxurious, it is a pain to travel with (heavy / clunky) and not very hygenic as you're dipping your finger into the pot over and over - a pump would have been better.
After paying so much for this cream, I'm disappointed it's just going to end up an expensive cuticle cream (which I'd doing a nice job of BTW!) continued >>
Ladies- the only reason you THINK it is hydrating is because of the petrolatum in it which is mineral oil. It is a filler. It leaves a slik finish but is not actually seeping into the skin thereby hydrating it. You might as well use ponds cold cream as soon as a product says petrolatum or mineral oil.
Besides there is fragrance in it which means more junk is in it. I just do not want to spend $68 for something with a bunch of junk in it.
I am not above paying $150 for an eye cream that actually works without chemicals that are actually harmful.
This product has won awards because it works, it's amazing and I love it!! I thought my eyes looked just the way did and that was that, until I used this product! WOW. My eyes have been lifted, smoothed and plumped out. Even my husband asked me when I was makeup free had I done something to my eyes because they looked really 'awake' ha! I screamed with delight!!
I am 27 with no wrinkles but do have dry skin and my eyes water a lot which dries this area out - but this is no longer the case - well my eyes still water but there is not much I can do about that - but I no longer have dryness underneath my eyes.
I have only put the price of this as 3 stars because although initally the product is expensive, you get so much for your money it will probably last a year which actually works out as really cheap. I have been using mine for about 3 months and there is only a slight dent in the jar. Packaging is beautiful as well. I love BB products and will buy this again and again
it is more of a barrier cream to me, as it is so thick, the main ingredients are mineral oil and silicone, it has fragrance which may irritate some people, good things are that it has no parabens and got peptides and some good oil and ingredients. it doesnt seem like much cream in a jar but because it is so thick, it lasts a long time as you need very little. the recommended details on the package said that it should be discarded within 6 months. to use this, pat gently around the eye area, do not smear it like a lotion. jar container is also annoying as it can harvest germs and the ingredients become less potent esp for eye cream, it should be more hygienic than a jar type.
note; this cream could give you milia, if you are prone to milia. dont use this.
I'm not gonna lie, I bought this after seeing some youtubers rave about it.
Pros: very creamy, heavy, feels "luxurious", jar is very durable & sleek looking.
Cons: didn't notice a ton of difference from cheaper eye creams, the pot is sorta inconvenient & not travel friendly.
For the price, I won't buy it again. I think Kheil's avocado eye cream is just as good... and I like Olay regenerist eye serum a lot better. If you're 21 and want a brand name eye cream, this is for you... if you're trying to keep the fine lines/dark circles away and you're trying to conserve money, then look elsewhere. continued >>
