As far as drug store eye creams go, this is one of my favorites. I switched to try garnier and I'm missing this Olay product. I will go back to this when I finish what I'm using. I loved the texture and it smoothed fine lines. It's not a miracle worker, but it does provide some visible improvement.
I just got this tonight at cvs and I like it, it blends well and it ligts around my eyes, I dot have dark circles and I still see a difference, but I wonder does this have a tint or something , when I put it on it felt like I just put concealer on , which I dont mind , Im using it for the night with my total effects night cream to see if it is any good. I hope it does not make me break out
OMG when I see this THING i feel like crying.
I started including this product in my everyday skin care routine. I used it for a week and then I realized it has GLITTER in it, but i was like what the hell my skin didn't break out so I continued using it (since my skin reacts very fast)
After a month I noticed my under eye area and my whole eyelid became SO MUCH DRY, and broke out so bad i couldn't wear any makeup cause it would look silly !
I discontinued using this. It's been a month my skin has become much better but not 100% recovered.
so please PLEASE and please do not buy this product if you have sensitive skin.
I really love this eye cream, I think that it add brightness around my eyes, smooths the skin and even helps to fill in some small fine lines.
It's an HG in my make up routine and since I've found it I cant imagine doing my daily make up with out it, it just works so gosh darn well under make up!
I really like this as a drugstore eye cream..and reading the earlier reviews, I really hope they've not discontinued it! It has a nice moisturizing effect as well as brightening due to tiny gold shimmery flecks in the cream - but its not 'glittery' at all! I use this as my AM eye cream and it sets a nice moisturized base for concealer and brightens my eyes. Good consistency, works great for moisturizing and brightening eyes.
This was my cheap HG for awhile. I dont believe they make it anymore which is a shame. It worked well under makeup and gave a nice canvas with which to conceal. Moisturizing too. I'd love to know if they still sell it.
I liked everything about the Total Effects line (I tried the day lotion, eye cream, and night cream)--except I learned that I don't like products that mess with my skin tone.
My skin felt great (the smoothest it's ever been), but after a couple weeks, I noticed a bright yellow tint to my skin. I did some research, and I believe it's the Niacinamide in the products. I thought it made my face look funny, like I was wearing too light of a foundation for my skin tone. I also don't like yellow tints near my hazel eyes because yellow washes out the green and makes my eyes look a creepy amber color.
Some people like the "iridescence" look, so if that's you, then this eye cream and Total Effects line would be good.
Great hydrating eye cream at a fair price. Better hydration and smoothing than anything else I've tried from the department stores. Wish it came in a squeeze tube instead of a pot, but I can live with that. I use this day and night on entire eye area, including lid. No troubles at all, even with my super sensitive eyelids. I like the amount of coverage or diffusion I get from this product and don't notice sparkles, shimmers, or even much pigment. It does not negate the need for concealer, but it does keep my eye area supple, hydrated, smooth and crease free all day long. Will def. repurchase.
Love! It's just the right texture, I use it under my eyes and around the outer corners (not on the lid though, I've been told my a beauty expert that only creams with minimal ingredients that are supposed to hydrate can be applied on the lid), I apply this at night, wake-up with my eyes looking fresh and young (I'm 20 btw, no wrinkles yet) it's really hydrating, the only thing I dislike about it is the tiny gold glitter, I just can't stand them and I refuse to wear this during day time IF I'm going out, I much prefer macs fast response eye cream ( de-puffs and is perfect as a base for your concealer to go on smoothly without tugging).
Overall this cream is a good one and I do think it helps to smooth skin out thus helping with wrinkles.
I am looking for a good firming/anti-aging eye cream to minimize fine lines. Dark circles have never been a problem.
I have a disposition to getting milia around my eyes and, unfortunately, this cream gave me more milia.
I used it for two weeks and didn't notice any other changes.
Won't buy again.
