i got a fairly large sample of this at my local beauty counter about a month ago. it's not empty yet but i used it for about two weeks almost every morning and some nights. the brightening effect on the skin is great and it's quite moisturizing too. unfortunately it irritates my eyes, makes them red and puffy and feeling really itchy. couldn't find the ingredients anywhere but i'm guessing they use titanium dioxide for the pearlescent effect. ladies with sensitive skin should really watch out for this ingredient as it's one of the biggest irritants out there. not trying to bash on the product/company but i'm confused as to why a company claiming to be so big on testing would use titanium dioxide... i recommend anyone who wants this: try it first, and if it works for you, you're lucky! definitely not for me though
First of all, don't waste your money!
Until now, this is the only product I really regret buying, especially considering how expensive it is.
I'm a true Clinique fan, I've used a lot of their skincare products. So you can imagine how anoyed I am.
I thought this product would be similar to the All bout eyes but with spf and a yellower tint to conteract my under eye redness. Well, it's not.
It doesn't moisturize, it's actually drying and accentuates the fine lines, so you need to use a different moisturizer underneat. Plus it's really hard to blend - yes, patting with your ring finger isn't enough- and impossible to use with concealer on top without looking too obvious.
I'm Nars Siberia pale and the this really pale yellow shade is too pale for me. I imagine how it'd look on darker ladies...
I live in a hot climate, but after 4/5 months the sunscreen started to separate from the yellow cream. I think it's time to toss it although I've spent about 1/10 of the product.
The only good thing I can say for it is that the spf is nice although it should be higher.
I was so excited to buy this product. An eye cream with SPF, which I can use every day and the search would be over.
But the area around my eyes reacted badly, red spots which really hurt. I stopped using it and gave it a second try, hoping it was something else. But it wasn't. Same reaction again, which took a couple of days to get rid of.
If you want to try this, be careful.
Really poor product, smells a little like camphor and also stings my eyes and also mouth area, when tried there instead. Useless, do not waste your money on this.
I was looking for a lightweight moisturizing daily eye-cream with spf.
- Spf (even if its quite low)
- Gives a light sheer
- Does not moisturize!! Too dry...
- accentures the fine lines cause its so thin...
- too low spf for the summer?
Try before you buy it!! There are better eye creams out there!
