The packaging on this is horrible! Yes, it is outrageously bulky. I can deal with that. However, when the pump is slightly clogged it can shoot across the room if you aren't careful. After using this for about three weeks I saw some good results but the pump mechanism broke rendering it completely useless.
Because of the nature of the packaging there is no good way to get the product out if the pump breaks. Customer service at Michael Todd good. They suggested soaking it upside down for 15 mins in warm water. I tried this, but it did not work so they are sending me a new one. Honestly at this price point the packaging should be much better. I will not purchase again unless the packaging is improved.
I had a very bad allegic reaction to this eye cream. The reaction was not immediate. I put it on, and noticed that it never absorbed in the skin. it just stays on my under eye area, I can see it making a light film. it just never ever absorbed. Then I went to sleep, and soon as I woke up, I had this swelling and puffiness in the under eye area. And alot of itching.
I know it was the cream, coz before this I was using the dermalogica power firm, and never ever had a reaction. But around 12 hrs into this, and my eyes are itchy and puffy.
Have no idea what I am allergic to or which ingredient in this product, coz I have never ever had such reactions to brands or makeup. Still trying to figure out. But for now I will not be repurchasing the eye creams from Michael Todd True Organics.
Bought the Eyesonic and this eye cream in a duo pack from Groupon the cost was $35. Its quite a good price for this. I really like this but you have to be using it regularly. I will have to admit I was stocked and ecstatic on using the eyesonic for the first 2 weeks then my laziness kicked in and didn't care for the eyesonic. The eye cream works great on its own anyways. Back to the product it works well under eyes and moisturizes the area. I would say that it did improve my under eyes makes them look brighter it does nothing for bags or dark circles tho. I've used this product for 4 months so maybe its too soon to tell but I didn't see any significant results for that. I continue to use it and theres so much product left. A little goes a long way I use the tiniest amount on each eye because it spreads out very evenly and make sure you don't use too much because it can make your eyes look very oily! A good tip is apply this eye cream first wait to dry and apply a concealer right under and whatever concealer you are using wont crease or roll over into tiny bits which I love about this cream. I would definetly re-purchase this but not at regular price!
I got this eye cream as a gift with the Eye-o-Sonic and I almost used it up.
- huge packaging for the amount of product specified. It was basically double than another eye cream with pump I had, without holding more product. This is a problem when you travel by plane and only have a hand luggage.I did not try the built in applicator, as it seems to rough for the sensitive eye area.
- greasy feeling, absorbs very slowly into the skin. However, this is the only eye cream I ever used that works well with the Eye-o-Sonic, as it allows a long massage of the eye area.
After about one week of using this cream at night (in the morning I use a more fast-absorbing cream) with the Eye-o-Sonic, I noticed significant improvements in my dark circles, but not so much in the fine lines. I am not sure if it was more due to the cream or to the device, but I am happy with the results! As my main problem at this point are dark circles, I consider this a good product and will probably use it in combination with an anti-aging eye cream.
Are you tired of looking tired!???
Well listen up, I have fantastic news for you, because this product here is no joke.
I have very dry dehydrated skin, especially the around the eye area, and this stuff truly hydrates it penetrates through, the skin absorbs it quickly. It's not greasy which is amazing.
Now the only down fall to this product is that, it says it help with dark under eye circles....unfortunately for me it did not work. I do find my fine lines appear less, and with makeup on, it doesn't get into those little creases! I think i payed this around 38$, it is pretty pricey but I find it was worth it, what i didn't like was the packaging. They sent me a huge box filled with white stuff, and just shoved the tube in there.......I was expecting a nice pretty michael todd box, but oh well!
I received this product when I ordered the Norma/combination skin care regimen, this was the one and only product that wasn't disappointing. I pretty much love everything from the packaging, to the results I've seen on my face. This has vastly improved the appearance of my under eyes, which were oddly sunken into my face. I don't however believe I would purchase this product again, when I bought the regimen as a set, I ended up paying $60 after using a discount or two, so paying $38 for the one product I liked seems a bit excessive.
I have a full review of all the products in this set on my youtube channel - http://youtu.be/SBq1JL8-FLI
This eye cream is nice. It doesn't feel greasy on my face or leaves behind a residue. I don't really have deep set eye wrinkles yet so I don't expect miracles. However it does condition my eyes well which is what I like. However for it cost $38 and for that amount of money I would rather invest in retinol. Nonetheless this came in a six piece set for dry skin and will continue to use it unless I find something better. So hopefully it continues to work. Yet it has a weird smell to it which I don't like but can handle. It is 90% organic which is great!
One thing I LOVE about this product is that my puffy eyes are 99% gone in the morning. For anyone who wears contacts; I wake up every morning with eyes that are so puffy that its horrific. However after I started using this eye serum, my eyes are longer scary in the morning. They still have a slight puffiness, however nothing like before. Its so minimal that only I notice. However once I wash my face and reapply eye serum in the morning it is gone by the time I am done getting dressed. If you have puffy eyes in the morning, I would for sure say try this!
This products are good, but not that good to see immediately results, not even in the next 3 months..haha
I said are good because my skin felt very hydrated and soft, but with the intensive eye cream I did not see any change or improvement in my fine lines..
My skin is in very good condition, but I have a few sun spots and my hope was to get Reid of it, but nothing happens....
I will return to my all time favorite Yves Rocher products!! Are more affordable and I can see results in my face every time I used a new product.
I'm writing my review here because Michael Todd only posts the 5/5 reviews on their website which is a pretty cheap thing to do.
I got this in a regimen package that I purchased in November. The packaging is nice and comes with an applicator tip so your don't have to use your fingers to apply it.
So far I've noticed a little bit of brightening around my eyes but nothing special. I can only use this at night because it's way too OILY for under makeup during the day.
I'll finish using it , but I won't be repurchasing.
This eye cream has worked miracles under my eyes! I had dark circles, huge puffy bags and deep wrinkles, and I heard about this cream and gave it a try. Within 2 weeks, there was such a major improvement with my eyes that several people commented on how much younger I looked! One person even asked if I had gotten an eye lift, I couldn't believe it! I wish that I had taken a "before" photo so I could show the difference. My dark circles are almost non-existent now, my wrinkles are more than 50% less in depth and the puffy bags are a thing of the past! I haven't worn concealer under my eyes in weeks, I'm so thrilled that this cream worked for me and I will certainly be purchasing more!!! The only negative is that the bottle and pump feel cheap, and I don't use that paddle tip to apply the cream but instead use my ring finger.
