This cream is really expensive! $100! I managed to snag one on eBay for half of that, so I was very happy!
I take very good care of my skin. I am 35-yo and have very mild, fine lines around the eyes. But I wear concealer/powder under my eyes every single day, so I need the area to remain taut!
I've always loved Fresh products (except their lip balms, which dried out my lips terribly!), and this is no exception. It smells divine, it's creamy without being greasy, absorbs nicely, and works well under my eye make-up!
I've been using this for about 2 months now and probably have another month of product in the jar. Will repurchase!
I received this as a sample, and from what I have noticed, my eye does look brighter and more supple. I should mention before I say anything else that I am not trying to fight wrinkles, my skin is not "mature".. I have noticed that the dark circles and just a general "blah" around my eye area have gone away. I don't have a problem with the smell (people are saying it smells like pickles..? ok..), and I didn't notice any irritation. Would I pay $75 for this? Nope, but it was awesome to get as a sample and I'm curious to see if the look of my eye area looks worse if I stop using this..
The only product I like from this skin care line is their lip treatment. I`ve obtained generous samples of all their skin creams, been dissatisfied with every one of them and this one is no exception. First off, this eye cream smells like rancid dill pickles- the odor is quite bizarre and it never really dissipates- you can still smell it on your skin when you awake in the morning after having applied it the night before. Secondly, if any of this cream gets in your eye it will probably sting and burn. I`ve only experienced this with a couple of other eye creams out of the 25 or so that i`ve tried and I generally don`t have sensitive eyes. I woke up with bloodshot, burning eyes on 2 occasions with just a thin layer of this stuff applied around my peri-orbital area ( because some of the product probably crept into my eye). Additionally, this cream never really soaks in, because after a couple hours, if you touch your eye area where it is applied it crumbs and rolls off. And the price! 60 dollars! What a rip for something that doesn`t even feel good or refreshing on the skin. Even if it does hydrate satisfactorily, there are so many other creams designed for the eye area for 1/3 the cost that moisturize the same or better than this one. The sales assistant at the Fresh boutique went on and on about how this eye cream is made by monks in a monastery in Eastern Europe to rationalize the high price- ehm do they actually expect us to believe that? Can not recommend this product at all.
I love the cucumber-y scent of this cream (though it says it is lychee), just like all Fresh products, it smells divine. The cream goes on silky and smooth but the problem is I failed to see any visible results with this product. My main issues are puffiness and darkness under the eyes, both of which this claims to alleviate. For the price, I want to SEE results darnit!! I'm sure it moisturized the eye area sufficiently but this could be done with a much less expensive eye cream as well. I'll happily use more samples of this product but will not purchase again.
The product is great in that it lacks all the parabens and sulfates...etc. It's supposed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, soothe puffiness, and alleviate dark circles. For me, it didn't really do any of that. It was just a nightly eye cream for me that I put on as a routine. Nothing special. I don't have dry skin, but i didn't think this moisturized enough either. The product comes in a tube, which keeps it clean, but I have a hard time trying to see how much is left of the product. Even though the tube seemed empty, I was always able to somehow got little bit out at a time. For the price and the lack of efficacy (for me at least), I won't be using this product again.
The smell is lovely (kind of like cucumbers) and the texture is great - silky and absorbs quickly. But I bought this to help with the fine lines under my eyes that are starting to form (29 years old) and slight darkness under my eyes, and sadly I don't think it's doing anything. I have oily skin and the skin under my eyes isn't dry. It does a nice job of hydrating, but that's about it. Don't think I'd pay $65 again for this product when it's basically just a nice moisturizer.
I love the texture of this cream but after going through 2 tubes I struggle to see what it does apart from moisturise. The texture is a little thick but absorbs well and is a great base for make up. In terms of anti-aging, I donít see anything. It doesnít build up the skin or thicken it in any way. Maybe you need to use this for a longer period of time but for the price, I would expect more than just moisture. I would say Estee Lauders Advanced Eye Repair is a lot better than this and cheaper too. If you have the money to spend $65 on a basic eye moisturiser, you wonít be disappointed but if you expect more, I donít think this delivers, well not over 7 months and 2 tubes anyway. I can tell its very high quality and very refined. I would say that $25 is what its worth. Loccitaneís Immortelle Eye balm is much better as well.
