Me: 49yo. Asian, issue: hollowed, a bit dark lower eye area, fine line or two.
Sorry for those who like it and causing this to lower the rating, but for the price I paid, I would have expected this to work considering that I've been using this for 2 months already. It's greasy when applied, so I have to dab tissue over it to keep the grease at bay. Goes with concealer ok. I tried to use it on my forehead to see if my few fine lines there will improve (I know it's for the eyes, but maybe it will work if used for a long time, plus I want to use it up and move on), well what I got are milias, so I stopped. Fortunately, it doesn't give me milias on the eye area so I am still using it because what else can I do, I do not want to waste my money. I can't give it away because it might give them milia and that will be embarassing.
Great product! It is so hard to find a good eye cream... Even in the high end area, eye creams are not a sure thing. This works, though and it is not that expensive either. I don't know if it helps smoothen out the wrinkles, but it definitely keeps the eye area moisturized for a long time throughout the day.
What a find! I've used everything from Kiehl's to La Mer, and was blown away by this eye cream. It's incredibly rich and luxurious to touch, and feels amazing on my delicate eye area. A little goes a long way, making this a bargain. I already thought the price was fairly inexpensive considering competitor products. My eye area is hydrated all day long, and I've noticed that it delivers on plumping my fine lines to minimize their appearance. Definitely a keeper!
This eye cream is very moisturizing but I got milia under my eyes several days after using it. I stopped using it immediately and definitely won't use it again. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone who is concerned about getting milia.
I am so up in the air about this eye treatment. One day I love it and the next day I'm not sure. I am almost at the end of my first jar and I am not sure if I will repurchase as I just purchased a different eye treatment that felt a little lighter. This is very moisturizing and it will keep your under eye area moisturized; however, I feel as though it never totally absorbs, and then when I apply my make-up 30 minutes after this application, I feel like I am just wiping it off? I do however love using it at night as I feel like it does it's job in the overnight hours. I am at the point where I think I will repurchase this product for the night and continue to use the lighter cream during the day. I am in my early thirties and my younger years of partying and baking in the sun are evident in my eyes, so I really do not care how much a product costs, it's whether or not it's producing results. Hopefully I will have a better idea after I begin to use this at night only on my true feelings on this product.
I'm mid 30s. I had very small creases and redness directly under my eye but just assumed it was mother nature taking its toll. Other than this, I didn't really have any other major signs of ageing (crows feet, bags) in my eye area so didn't actually pay this area that much attention and thanked my lucky stars that I was ageing well. Was advised to step up my eye care regime and that I was actually rather dry in this area. Went on the scout and bought this product. Wow. HG!!! I can honestly say that the redness and small creases have all been plumped out and the area looks much better. Have never found a cream that "works" this quickly.
I am in love! I have finally found my eye product to keep. I have sampled and purchased I don't know how many others without success until a Sephora manager gave me a sample of this one day. She didn't use it but offered me Shiseido's Benefiance and said she had heard good things about it. I went home thinking oh well, another loser to try. Was I wrong!
I knew within a few days this was the HG of eye creams for me. I have post-menopausal skin. After washing my face, it is somewhat dry feeling. I have minimal lines but they are there. I'm most concerned with my eye area. Since I have been using Benefiance, there has been, without a doubt, a huge turnaround in the appearance of lines under my eyes. They seem to have diminished and almost disappeared. Odd, but true. The crow's feet that were beginning to appear are lessening, also. I wouldn't believe this, but I purposely took pictures each week of my eyes to see if there would be a noticeable difference. In the three months from the time that I first received the sample and now when I am writing this, (I have since purchased a jar), I have seen a huge improvement. My crow's feet will always be there, of course, but they are lessened. I'm sure there is some plumping factor going on but Shiseido claims to "repair existing wrinkles" with this cream and I would swear it does.
Everyday when I apply this delightful cream, it feels like heaven to me. It is a pure delight. It's goes on smoothly and easily and keeps my eye area well-hydrated without having to reapply it again hours later. Now that's what I call getting your money's worth. I also like to apply a little more on top of my foundation under my eye at the outer corners to add a bit of luminescence after I'm finished with all of my make-up. Just a tad, and it plumps the eye area.
It contains Hyaluronic Acid, Burnet Extract, Hydroxyproline.
As I said, when I smooth this delectable cream on, my skin goes ahhhhh and so do I. I will keep on purchasing this one, because it works. I sometimes see younger women saying certain products don't work well for them such as these, but perhaps that's because it's formulated for older, more mature skin that has gone through hormonal changes. Shisheido has been around over 100 years and I do believe they know what they are creating with this product.
The only downside is that it's packaged in a large open-mouthed tub but does come with its own spatula so you don't have to use your fingers to get germs inside the entire container. I use the spatula to scoop out a weekly amount into an even smaller plastic container and put the jar back into my fridge to keep it fresher for a longer time.
my newfound love! i have dry under eye area and i enjoy using rich eye creams all throughout the year and this really is ultra rich, yet easy to pat in. i love how this wears under concealers. i used this day and night all around my eyes, dabbing it on top of my lashes too....for close to two months and i notice smoother, hydrated skin around the eyes and this cream does not give me those tiny bumps...that you get sometimes from using a thicker, richer eye creams. the most exciting result of this eye cream is that i have fuller, longer lashes than prior to using this product! definitely will repurchase!
- creamy consistency (not thick like a balm)
- not greasy; not shiny
- fine lines show under concealer
- very light scent that I like
- no milia
- less affordable than drugstore creams
- wrinkles are less pronounced unless use is discontinued
My under eyes were looking crepey. This was recommended at the Shiseido counter and endorsed by Sephora SA so I have been faithful to this through two jars applied twice a day. I like the little spatula so the $67 jar stays hygienic. I usually apply this after cleansing and wait 30 minutes before applying makeup. It feels hydrating but whenever I check my concealer, it shows fine lines. This could be from the dry air in the office. Will buy third jar but also sampling other brands that lessen appearance of wrinkles.
Santa brought me a good gift- this eye cream along with rest of the line! I LOVE this eye cream and the day/night cream that go along with it. The softening toner had too much alcohol for my sensitive skin, and the cleanser is just okay (exact dupe of Estee Lauders cream cleanser, INMHO) so if you are looking for the ultimate luxurious skin care line, this would be it.
If I could only afford one of the three creams I would pick this eye cream, hands down. The day cream is #2 because of the added benefits of sunscreen and the hydration it offers, and the night cream last because well, who doesn't love a rich night cream?
Now that I've got some fine lines, I really do realize how much sleep effects these lines. It reminds me I need to invest in more frownies....
