I really enjoy this eye cream. I started to notice a lot of fine lines underneath my eyes and with my already parched skin I knew my eye area was in desperate need. I used to use one by olay but it actually burned my eyes, and it was kind of heavy. This eye cream is perfect for someone young getting a feel for eyecream. It's very lightweight and doesn't irritate. I've seen improvement of lines over time and have repurchased. It's actually not that expensive when compared to a lot of other drugstore eye creams and definitely compared to high end. The olay was probably a few dollars cheaper but for no burning I can sacrifice. It works for me right now being 19 but if you're older you probably need something a bit more intensive.
This product was over all "meh" for me. Mainly because I used it for about 3 months and saw no improvement in any thing. And a few time it stung upon application. It just didn't really do much for me and I was about 3/4th done with it and decided to just throw it away. Do not recommend.
I've been using this cream on nights only, for exactly one week. I was going to review this cream after a month but I'm so pleased with the results I figured I might as well review it now. I have recently noticed some hooding above my eyes and slight puckering at the lowest point of my undereye area. I am completely happy with my usual eye creams (I alternate between Clinique All About Eyes and Judith Williams Phytomineral) which are moisturising enough for my dry undereye area, and my eye serums also help (Elemis Pro Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment and Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye) but I figured I needed to boost my regime with a retinoid. I settled on this eye cream which, although actually more of a lotion texture and not at all moisturising (so strictly for night-time use, at least for me) is having a very good effect on my slight sagging. My hoods are noticeably improved, so much so I can see myself using this for some time to come. My undereyes look noticeably refreshed too. I apply sparingly after my eye serum and do not experience sensitivity and tap the cream in very lightly so I can see this treatment lasting at least six months. So very good value too.
I just wanted to issue a little warn of caution to anyone using this product, or other products that contain variations of retinol. Sometimes, included in the list of ingredients, you'll find "palmitate." It has recently been found to be a possible carcinogen. I don't want to ring any giant warning bells, as the jury is, as always, still out - but I thought that the responsible thing to do was to mention this to all of you gorgeous women out there who are just as concerned with safety as you are beauty!
I'm on the hunt for the perfect products myself, and I can't say how nice it is to have a whole community of smart, lovely ladies to help me in my quest!
Thanks so much for your time and attention, and as always, Stay Beautiful!
I was referred to this by a skincare guru as a "preventative" measure (AKA she's telling me to start using an eye cream). I accidently picked up Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Moisturizing Cream (both day and night) instead of this and those have done wonders. However, this, I do not like. I have been using it for a good three weeks and can say that it makes me have MORE wrinkles (temporary, obviously) and that it has contributed to some milia under my left eye. Not moisturizing at all and I don't see any positives about it to be honest. Really wanted this to work - its such a reasonable price for an eye cream!!! ;'(
Perhaps it would be good for oilier skin, but my skin is very dry.
I have super oily skin, so I hated wearing sunglasses as it left them all oily too. but one day I looked in the mirror and realized that I got this huge, noticeable wrinkle under my left eye, I freaked out and ran to the store to look for an eye cream with hope that it could magically reverse my mistake. At the time I was using Lancome multi vitamin eye cream in the morning but I used nothing at night. so I picked up this one and wow within a week my new born wrinkle was gone, and the area under my eyes became so bright and smooth. So much better than before. Of course I learned to also get used to wearing sunglasses along with using this cream at night. I could not be happier. The texture is really smooth and not greasy at all. The smell is subtle. Perfect.
This is the first eye cream I have ever bought. I have very fine lines and darkness around my eye area since forever. I'm 21 so I figured I have to be preventive about future wrinkles too. This liquidy pale translucent cream absorbs quickly on the eye area and feels refreshing. Not sticky or oily at all, it helps concealer glide easier. It's been months since I first bought it and I haven't noticed any difference on my eye area... It just gives a firming feel to the skin for a couple of hours but that's about it. Will keep looking! *sigh*
I'm 24 years old and have pretty good skin. One of my biggest issues however has been the dark circles and early signs of crows feet developing around my eyes. I've used other eye creams in the past, but not really dilligently...I also had an awful habit of going to sleep with my makeup on, rubbing my eyes etc. To make it worse, I suffer from insomnia...needless to say my eyes were not looking 24 years old.
As part of an effort to take better care of my skin, I decided to give Neutrogena's "Healthy Skin" line a try, although my buying this eye cream was a really spur of the moment thing.
I've been using it for 2 weeks now, twice a day (morning and night) and while I still do have fine lines, I noticed my dark circles are slightly less bad. Honestly I haven't noticed a lot of difference in the wrinkles, but then again it's supposed to take 4 weeks. So far though I like it! It doesn't irritate my eyes or cause sensitivity. I really hope that there will be a firming effect on my skin but so far I like it enough to buy it again.
I found this eye cream to be moisturizing and to have a temporary "tightening" effect around my eyes. I used it in a "C" shape around each eye, but if I applied the cream too close to the undereye area, it made my eyes water a lot.
I was pleasantly surprised by this eye cream. I'm 33 and I'm just starting to see some fine lines around my eyes. When I used this my lines were not nearly as noticeable. This didn't do a thing for puffiness or dark circles, so if you're looking for a product to help with that, look elsewhere. But if you're like me and needing some early prevention for fine lines and wrinkles, look no further than your local drugstore and this little gem.
