I just love this eye cream. It's not too heavy, it does NOT give me Milia, and it does what it promises - de-puffs and hydrates. Even after a terrible night's sleep this stuff just does the trick every time.
The entire RE9 line is worth buying. Yes, it is expensive (products average at $55 each) but the results are truly amazing. Never in my life have I been complimented so much on my skin.
I had a sample of this and liked it enough to buy the full size. I've been using the FS for four months now and it doesn't seem to be near empty. This is my perfect daytime eye cream. Just enough moisture without being so greasy it makes my eye makeup run. It layers well with concealer, too. I tried using it at night but I needed something heavier. (Kiehl's Cryste Marine) The only thing I'm not crazy about is Arbonne's sales tactics and pricing. First, you have to find a rep who won't bug you to death to sign up to be a consultant. I lucked out on that. Second, you have to pay a yearly fee to get 20% off everything. Then, they are constantly running various discounts or package deals, so you have a guessing game about when to buy or whether buying a whole bunch of stuff to get a better price is really a good idea. I wish they were more straighforward.
My boyfriend bought the re9 arbonne set for me on christmas. It has been about 4 and a half weeks and I have noticed I have lines under my eyes that were never there before. I like that the product is paraben free, but I do not like that an anti aging eye cream produced wrinkles. I am horrified and dont know how to resolve this!!
I was really excited to try this product because I have heard a lot of good things about it. This really did not work for me though. I've been using it for a few months now and I honestly can't say I see a difference on under eye circles or fines lines. I'm not expecting any miracles from my skincare, I realize they can only do so much. But I do expect the product to absorb nicely and at least hydrate. This product did not absorb into my skin well at all. The directions say to use it am and pm so that's what I've been doing. In the am I apply it and then wait about 1/2hr-45min before I put on my makeup. This just sits underneath my eyes and causes my makeup to smudge. I've touched the area hours later and I can still feel it sitting there. Some things I do like about the product is that it has a nice creamy texture, a light citrus scent, and I like the pump and how it doesn't dispense too much product. What I don't like about the packaging is that for some reason every time I use this it dispenses a tiny hard bit of product first. It isn't a lot but this is the first product I have used that has done this and it's a little annoying. I also wish the bottle were see through. I don't plan on repurchasing but if I was it would be nice to know when I am running low, especially considering you can't just run into a store and get this but rather you have to order through a rep or online.
I thought that this was OK. But the thing that bothered me most was the quality of product. Something was off and I got an irritation from it.
edit: Am now using this as a face cream rather than specifically just for eyes.
This is a fairly good eye cream. My mother and I both use it. It smoothes out her fine lines somewhat- it's a temporary effect, as is the moisturization- i feel like it leaves a smooth texture or 'overlay' but doesn't really penetrate. This really irritates my mom's sensitive eyes by the way. Even if she applies very little an inch or so below, it still moves. Also it irritates her skin, and I've read that skin irritation can cause skin damage...so she doesn't use it all the time... Not directly.. Just with rosehip oil underneath which is like a buffer serum. I had the same problem but Now I use iy more like a facial cream with a light dab round the eyes, than an eye cream specifically. Overall, I wouldn't repurchase. I have experienced better results with plain coconut and rosehip oil under my eyes....it brightens dark circles after a couple of weeks' usage. This, I think, gives a temporary brightening effect. I would recommend this to older people who want proper moisturization and a temporary eye tuck- so long as they don't have sensitive eyes. It is perhaps the only Arbonne product i've tried (i used their face cream, eye cream, foundation, and body products) that isn't cr@$..
I received some samples of this whole line. I loved it at first....until a few days later my under eye area got so dry, almost like a burn. Such a shame, I thought it was really doing the trick with my 50+ skin. It seriously burned my area, so bad that I had to try all different types of (natural) remedies. i.e. cocoa butter, argan oil, it would just soak it up. I hope it is not permanently damaged. The smell is great, but there is something in this line that instead of regulating fragrances, they should be regulating what we put on our face! I seriously cannot recommend this to anyone, because you just don't know if you are in the line of the bullet for sensitivity. I only had a reaction in the eye area, but bad enough that I won't use any of it. I use Bare Minerals cleanser or Philosophy cleanser, both area very good. Victoria Principal line is very good also, but I haven't had that in years, guess I might give that a try again. FYI, be warned, this stuff is dangerous.
Most of my reviews are all positive because recently I haven't had any issues or the ones I would like to complain about aren't listed yet. BUT, aside from that, I truly love this eye cream. I think the whole line of Re9 is too expensive for me at this age but I fell in love with the eye cream the second I sampled it. It instantly feels like it tightens the skin around my eyes and I've noticed a HUGE difference in the little fine lines around my eyes. I've been mistaken as being 16 a few times since using this and that's pretty good considering I'm 25. (I mean, I don't really want to look like a teenager, but I know it's a good thing to look younger.)
The only complaint I really have about it is that some times when I use it, the pump dispenses a hard little tube of product that you can't use. I have to wipe it off my finger and dispense again. I think that HAS to waste some product but it can't be that much. I also don't like that you can't really tell how much you have left.
It's definitely worth the money. And it really doesn't have a smell, just a faint citrus scent.
I don't know about you ladies, but I get exhausted with finding a skin care line I love. This is my HG! I do not sell Arbonne and got this from a friend. I use the new RE9 line at night. Love the smell and more natural ingredients. Really does help wrinkles, discoloration and decreasing pores. Does not make me breakout and my combo skin stays in perfect balance. I skip the night cream d/t it breaking me out. Love everything else. It may seem expensive up front, but a kit for me last a year since I only use at night. I would spend this in other products anyway. Also works well with Retin-A. Love it!
This did nothing for me. All I require from an eye cream is moisturization & this product barely delivered at best. It does sink in fast, I'll give it that ~ by the time I've put it back in the cabinet, there are no signs I've put any on because it's completely absorbed. I much prefer something more emollient like kiehls' avocado eye cream or clinique's all about eyes. this product has a fairly strong orange scent when first applied, but that fades away quickly as well
I would not repurchase. continued >>
